Who I Am
My name's David Schutz. After reading that 35% of preventable deaths are related o a lack of exercise and poor nutrition, I decided to do what I can to change that. I started this in 2017 with my wife's encouragement.
Fit after 50 exists to provide training, information and motivation to people so they permanently adopt a lifestyle that includes regular fitness, healthy nutrition and proper weight management so they live long, healthy, fully functional lives.
What We Do
I work to provide simple, clear, actionable information culled from the most reliable sources to anyone interested in living a long and healthy life. We can't change our genetic inheritance, but we can take steps to live a long and healthy life.
I started this in 2017, and I work on this every day, when I'm not out exercising or prepping the next healthy meal.
What Shocked Me Into Action
I found the below chart on an NIH website. The second leading cause of preventable death for people 50 and over is "Poor Diet/Physical Inactivity (35%). This is massively depressing, and also a HUGE call to action.
