AGE IS JUST A NUMBER


AGE IS JUST A NUMBER

CHARLES EUGSTER    Book Number: 83272    Product format: Paperback

'I am just an old boy who refused to shuffle into decrepitude.' Charles Eugster is 97 and loving it. At the age of 63, the retired dental surgeon took up competitive rowing. At 87 he took up bodybuilding. And at the age of 95 he started sprinting competitively for the first time in his life. He has won multiple gold medals and is a World Record-holding athlete. 'From experience, I can tell you that the potential to transform yourself for the better is mind-blowing. I can sum it up by asking three simple questions: Do you think that is possible to be old without having any diseases or disability whatsoever, or even a cold? Is it too late to retrain or re-educate yourself? Can you imagine being fit enough at over 90 to be successful in international sporting competitions or even boast a beach-ready body?' We love this man's pluck as he shares his story and passionate belief that growing older needn't slow you down at the kind of age which many people accept the apparent inevitability of a life dependent on others. Enjoy vicariously Charles' world of insight about how later life can be creative, profitable and productive, showing readers how he takes on new challenges, learning new things, making mistakes, and improving the body as it ages, rewarding for the individual and beneficial to society. 270pp in softback with fairly large print.
