What a beautiful world I live in! I’m 73 years old and I feel WONDERFUL! It’s largely because of Dale Benedict. He does nothing but abuse my body. He tells me to lift weights that I know are impossible for me to get out of the stand, much less raise over my head 15 times. But Dale says “you can do it” and I do. He tells me to run on the treadmill. I reply, “I’m not a runner, I walk on the treadmill, I’ll fall if I run.” But Dale says “you can do it” and I do. He takes me outdoors, wants me to walk with giant steps and squat each time I step. I tell him “I’m not an athlete, I’m clumsy, I’ll fall and hurt myself.” But Dale says “you can do it”, and I do.
Dale is full of charm and charisma, as patient as a saint, and as tenacious as a tiger. My six sons tell me I must keep this man in my life, even if I must forgo other pleasures.
These six boys, all of whom are older than Dale, are hoping for another 40-50 years of freedom from a helpless, sickly mother. But I know they are right because I’m hoping for another 70 years of travel and adventure. I just returned from a trip that would tax the endurance of a 40 year old. I owe my ability to survive such trips to Dale and his training. His certain confidence in me, his persistence in pushing me even harder will keep me strong enough to live the lifestyle I enjoy. How lucky I am to have found such a treasure with The Training Studio almost in my backyard.
