Weight Loss Goals Are A Waste Of Time with Rico Caveglia
Rico Caveglia’s chronological age is 76 but his fitness energy age is 35. He is America’s healthy aging trainer and creator of the Ageless Living Lifestyle, Vitality for Life Training System, and the Be Bold Never Old Wellness Club not to mention he just kicked off a brand new podcast, Fearless Aging. So, this week on Open Sky Fitness, I get the chance to share his lifestyle with you, what changes in the fitness industry he has witnessed, and more importantly, how we can build habits around nutrition, exercise, and mental wellness to be healthy for life.
As you listen, Rico and I covered:
- How he got his start in the world of health and fitness as one of the first personal trainers in San Diego.
- What new trends have popped up over the years that he enjoyed, disliked, and thought were a waste of time.
- What we used to believe back then compared to now with all of the latest and health and wellness research.
- The benefit of working out at a slow pace except for if you include interval training.
- Why the best investment you can make is one that benefits your health and it’s totally okay to reach out to someone like a personal trainer for help.
- Why solely focusing on weight loss is a waste of your time.
