-This has changed dramatically for me over the years because as an athlete health meant staying injury free and being able to perform at my best every single training session. This being said I had no regard for my long term health as all that mattered to me was winning the Olympics. Now my number one focus and long term health goal is longevity.
This sounds premature at 39.5 years old but I see many many people come to Roar who are only 10-15 years older than me who struggle to move without pain/discomfort. When I retire I want to be travelling the world, climbing mountains etc and not to be limited by lack of strength and fitness. I feel very privileged to be well and strong and physically capable so I will try to protect this as much as I know how.
