Re: TIME TO HELP INSPIRE SOMEONE ELSE

I live in a 1982 apartment building that is mostly older folks and is very social, two 16 story buildings set on an old estate that has a large green area with trees. I go to the Fitness Center in the building where most of the guys walk on the treadmills. One fellow has a fitness watch and say's he...

Re: HAPPY SPRING

Spring was late here in SW Ontario Canada. I live in an apartment on the 15th floor, suddenly looking out from my place is a sea of green. My town of almost 400,000 is also called the forest city, houses below disappear hidden by the trees. There are many trails around and being retired make use of ...

The Mirror

I'm not a big fan of mirrors in exercise studios but have been going down to the apartment building Fitness Center and they have full length mirrors. Doing my Dynamic Tension exercises in front of the mirror is very good, you get a look at your muscles working. The FC is usually empty except the occ...

Re: wish i started when i was younger

I originally bought the Atlas course back in 1970 UK, the thing then was not having the discipline to train properly and daily. I spent more time reading than doing. Much later years I developed discipline, nowadays at 65 work quite hard.

Re: Our Bodies

I worked for a builder as a general labourer for like 13 years, now that I'm retired I have to be active everyday. We sold our house and got an apartment more central to the town, we can walk up-town in 20mins and then walkabout even use the bike paths by the river to get there a bit longer. Also so...

Re: Music bath

Classical music is great and today there is so much more to listen to, sound tracks from movies, even video games. Atlas would likely listen from a 78rpm record and maybe radio, today with the internet there's is a whole World of music at your finger tips.

elliptical machine

Tried the elliptical machine setting it at 13 which simulates hiking, pretty good machine. Gets me warmed up for some calisthenics on the floor area. One fellow commented on my exercises "that's quite some stretching your doing" he sez, I told him it was the Charles Atlas Dynamic-Tension® system. Mo...

2018 New Year Resolutions

Even though I eat healthy and exercise regularly, new year resolution means to refocus and plan. My apartment building has an indoor pool, I bought some goggles so I can swim head down when swimming a length, more relaxing doing the breaststroke. There's also an exercise room, which has various card...
