What is 40fit?

40fit supports a community of athletes age 40+ with Fitness, Community and Lifestyle resources. The goal is to support performance, lifestyle and quality of life for 40 plus athletes. By combining the resources of evidenced based science, anecdotal experience, and the community, individuals are challenged to look at aging through a refreshing perspective and reach their maximum genetic potential.


The more I trained using various methods, the more I realized there was something missing.  I noticed that even though I was significantly more fit than most of my peers, my experience in training was not the same as the “younger crowd.” The higher my fitness level became, the more I realized the value of fitness and lifestyle factors that I paid less attention to in the past. This is true for almost any athlete seeking higher levels of performance and capacity. Any inexperienced athlete can make quick and sometimes astonishing gains.

40fit programming is based on my own personal experiences as an athlete, evidenced based science and the collective experiences of the community. The programming model is a conjugate of these inputs and represents an adaptive construct to support the maximum genetic potential of each individual athlete. There is no one system that can meet the needs of all individuals, and anyone who would tell you otherwise is selling something for the purposes of selling something. The programming in the training model will constantly change and be a work in progress. We will not follow fads or training techniques just because someone else recommends them or they have become sexy. The foundation of any training should be based on what works, not what sells. I know that puts us at a significant disadvantage to spread the word, but I hope that the results of those who engage in our training will be evidence enough.

Many of those in the 40fit Nation are in week three (or longer) of city or statewide lockdowns, and dire headlines continue to dominate the media outlets. So Coach D and Trent are sharing today some ways they are staying positive and productive in the midst of the madness.


  1. Be purposeful with your media consumption. Maintain an analytic mindset about the facts, the source of the facts, and be aware when media is making an emotional appeal rather than reporting the facts (which is just about all the time).
  2. Make lists of the positive things in your life right now.
  3. Spend time in meditation or prayer. Carve out some space and time for quiet, solitude, and study or self-reflection.
  4. Maintain your routine. Even if you have to create a new routine, find a schedule that works and stick to it.
  5. Be productive. Take up a hobby. Do some yard work or spring cleaning. Read that book you’ve had on your list for a long time. You don't have to be a superhero here, but getting things done brings a sense of accomplishment.


Lastly, give yourself some grace. Some people are suffering more than others right now, and these tips may seem impossible for those most affected by the virus and economic conditions right now. That's ok. We are calling everyone in the 40fit Nation to do their best and stay accountable to each other, but we also need to be kind to ourselves and each other.
