Boom Generation Fitness

Mind - body fitness and health strategies for powering thru later years

The blog is aimed at the generation that was born between 1946 and 1964 - the so-called Baby Boomers.

We are now into our middle-age and very interested in staying fit and healthy until well into our senior years.

This blog provides some of the tools to do just that. You can find posts here and lots more by clicking on the links to THINK FIT and THE FITNESS PAPERS (see left side column).

These pages are about any and all matters concerning wellness, mind, body and spirit and, of course, physical exercise of all sorts. A special feature is an emphasis on individuals who can provide examples for us all of a healthy, energetic and positive life.

Monday, October 29, 2007


This is James Bastin. He's not over 50 (for sure!) but he's going into this blog anyway.

James was hit in the head by a taxi when he was 20 in 2005. He was in a coma and then severe post traumatic amnesia for about nine months. He suffered several brain operations including removal and replacement of his skull. When this photo was taken he still could not talk or see properly. In 2007 James passed his 800 metres swimming test; he runs and works out. This young man literally came back from the dead. He is the toughest (mentally and physically) person I know. If you feel you can't do it, think about James and never give up!
