067: The 71-Year Old Fitness Phenom

I ran into a man the other day at the park who is a wonderful 71-year old man who can do full pull-ups, flips over the bar, and 1000 km bike rides for charity. Of course, I chatted with him for a while about how he keeps so healthy and it inspired me to share […]
