I've got to dedicate this weeks column to one of my hardest working clients, Joellen Allenberg. She is 60 years old but outworks many of my younger clients. She has become super strong since we started working together, and regularly cycles 30-plus miles, weather permitting. She is a powerful example of what can be achieved at any age with hard work and commitment. She is a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to seeing more progress from her.  Baby boomers have become the hottest demographic in health and fitness as many of them have realized that eating healthy and staying active is truly the fountain of youth.

Editor's note: This is the first story in a series about putting health in perspective. We're aware of the need to maintain our health, but sometimes we have mixed-up notions of which factors significantly influence our health and which are trivial. We drink diet soda to reduce our calorie consumption, but eat fast food five times a week. We use antiseptic soap, but pick up a spatula off the kitchen counter to flip a pancake. We complain that our kids are rotting their brains with video games, then lounge in front of the TV rather than play chess or read a book.
