I’ve been blessed to have some truly remarkable guest on this podcast. I’ve had authors, subject matter experts, physicians, and PhDs. I’ve also had inspirational guests who have overcome incredible obstacles and undergone amazing transformations. And I’ve loved every one of these conversations, and I’ve taken something away from each and every one of these interviews, and I hope you have as well. Today’s guest reached out to me and asked if I’d be interested in interviewing an average senior fitness consumer. Someone without in-depth fitness expertise, but rather is representative of the general silver edge over 50 population… perhaps someone like you.
So today I present an interview from the perspective of the average fitness consumer. But in editing this podcast it struck me… perhaps this story isn’t so “average” at all, in fact, I found it extraordinary. I struck me in listening back to this episode that those of us over 50 who are prioritizing our health and fitness aren’t average at all, but exceptional. And since you’re listening to this podcast right now, I’m guessing your story is exceptional as well.

My guest today is Bernie Rhinerson. Bernie is a self-described 70-year-old average fitness consumer. Bernie was never particularly active or health conscious until he hit retirement at about 25 pounds overweight. Somehow a book founds its way into his hands that stated your new career after retirement is your health and fitness. So Bernie joined a gym, hired a trainer, and lost his excess weight and now at age 70 is as strong and as fit as he’s ever been in his life. But he’s not done yet, Bernie has plans to increase his strength and fitness, to up-level his nutrition, in order to pursue the things he’s passionate about. Join us as Bernie shares how he started his fitness journey at age 60, how he got into the best shape of his life at age 70, and where he plans on going from here.
