The Fit Farmer
The Fit Farmer
Beside being a "farmer" I like to think I make a decent attempt at staying in "shape" (besides round) and being fit.
It is important to do so for a number of reasons. By in large in our country we do not have a health care crisis but rather a "Fat Ass" crisis. It impacts us in so many ways, non of them good.
Having agriculture being a part of my life I have had the opportunity to stay pretty active and I have been blessed with a set of genes' that allows me to be pretty physical. As I approach the big 50 I wanted to get in the best shape of my life and I hope to use this page to share that with anyone who would like to do the same.
Our farm market and winery has a unique setting to help others. We grow some really great things to eat and have events that make the journey fun! Now yea some of the stuff we have is probably not on the p90x diet!
I know because I do that workout plan too. But this page and "the fit farmer" is about balance, having fun and making "fitness" a lifestyle that you can not only obtain and keep.
Right now I am getting my body in shape and ready to be sort of an example of what is possible. Not in a "come look at me", I live in a gym and "you can look like this too" way but in a way that shows you things we grow and do on the farm as a way to help improve your quality of life.
For up to date progress please visit my face book page
to see where I am at.
The plan is to partner with other area folks who make fitness and having fun a priority and combine them with food and crop options we grow on the farm and offer programs and products that help other folks out.
