A determined 53-year old

I have just turned 53 and know I need to get serious about my fitness and my weight. A key motivation for me right now is just to ward off the effects of old age - and to make cycling, hiking, and golfing easier and more fun. To get to a healthy weight so I don't open myself to a whole host of ailments that I see happening all around me with friends and family. At a higher weight, my wife tells me I snore too much.

I'd have to say that amongst my main circle of friends, I know few tennis players and even fewer hikers. Our family loves to hike however I am the only tennis player. That may change soon as my daughter just last week asked me about signing up for some lessons and my wife wants to join in. I guess they are realizing how much fun tennis can be, and perhaps more importantly for them, how much of a workout it can provide as well (that's alot funner than the treadmill or elliptical).

Hi! I've been playing in our tennis league for YEARS and haven't met someone there who also likes to hike! It's fun finding people with the same interests. Our family loves to hike, and my husband and I like to play tennis too.
