An inspirational speaker, author, and former Wall Street rainmaker, Jim Owen was 70 when he decided he had to get fit.
Years of a chair-bound lifestyle were taking their toll. Realizing that the old bodybuilding approach was no way to tackle the stiffness, weakness, and aches and pains that come with age, he set off on a journey of discovery and transformation.
With help from the experts, he developed a common-sense, step-by-step program that can be tailored to any level of physical ability. Along the way, he learned why cardio machines aren't enough, what it takes to be "functionally fit" for daily life, and how to stay motivated.
Today, Owen is in better shape than he was at 25, and he is a passionate evangelist for fitness as a way of life. He has proved that you don't have to be powerless in the face of advancing years: if you make a commitment to "just move," you can take charge of the aging process and make your coming years the best they can be.
Listen as Owen joins host Lisa Davis to share more about the Just Move! program and his book, Just Move! A New Approach to Fitness After 50.
