The Senior Games | Off The Scale and Onto a Starting Line

The thought of participating in the Senior Games as an athlete may have not even occurred to you, yet. That doesn't mean it's too late. I’m forever telling clients to get off that scale. They nod and agree. Then the first thing that comes out of their mouths when we talk about status is about either losing a few pound – or gaining a few pounds – or the dreaded plateau. What would shifting your goal to a starting line do for you? What if it weren't about weight loss at all or about what to eat or a forever search for the right workout?  What if it were about getting better at a sport, performing optimally, and getting focused on something fun for you yet bigger than you? Enter my guest on this episode, Kyle Case of the Huntsman World Senior Games. Huntsman World Senior Games: The Huntsman World Senior Games is the largest annual multi-sport event in the world for athletes age 50 and better. Every October the Games welcomes more than 11,000 athletes from all around the world to St. George, Utah to compete in their choice of 30 different sports.The event was founded in 1987 and continues to strive to achieve its mission of fostering worldwide peace, health and friendship.  Kyle M Case is the CEO of the Huntsman World Senior Games.
