Over the years, we have found fitness one of the most critical components of well-being. At first, it was ad hoc – going to the gym semi-regularly, hiking when weather permitted, water skiing occasionally, etc. At the time (at age of mid-30’s) these random workouts were considered good enough, however they came with a few bad sides. They were accompanied by much soreness in major muscle groups; it was very apparent that twitch/control muscle groups would fatigue rapidly; and they emphasized that we were progressively getting worse at these exercises rather than better. This last point is perhaps the most significant in the disappointing awareness that we were not the best we could be. Moving ahead about ten years, we progressively integrated regular workoutsBench suit into our week – mainly by going to a gym and working out how we saw fit. Essentially, we worked out more frequently but not programmatically. The benefits were readily apparent. Most of the physical downsides were reduced, and stamina and strength were increased. The mental aspects were equally beneficial in that they allowed us to de-stress from our entrepreneurial and “pressure” jobs and gave us something successful that was totally in our control (a “win” on a bad day). However, these workouts required a gym and were undertaken with no instruction, meaning they weren’t ideally compatible with travel required for work, and they lacked versatility. The solution was to research and adopt portable fitness programs that are used in-home or on-the-road. Equally important, the routines must be flexible, versatile and efficient. We have used this approach to fitness for the past seven years, regardless of where we are, working out an average four times a week with workouts ranging from 15 – to – 45 minutes. Over the past 20-years, we have found it the most effective means of maintaining our physical fitness.
