AbsoluteFIT keeps you strong, even in your dotage — tell that to the kids!
Kids — sometimes they underestimate their parents.
One of my most treasured childhood memories was the steaming summer afternoon when I was twelve, and my fifteen-year-old brother and two of his friends — all nearing six feet tall, with wingspans to match — challenged my mom to a 3-on-1 game of basketball. They saw a 35-year-old 5’5” mom of three; practically an old lady, surely no match for them.
Long story short: The 1966 high school state semifinals bball champ absolutely smoked those boys — burnt their weak game to the ground! It was glorious!
My own kids are still young enough that they think I can pretty much do anything, but they were somewhat skeptical when I said I could jump two-footed onto something as high as their beds. They tried it themselves several times and said it was impossible. Well:
Take that, young whippersnappers! I’m going to keep doing AbsoluteFIT, at least in part because I want to keep blowing their minds for decades to come.
