Weight training fountain of youth?

Ted Lawler has been pumping iron for nearly two-thirds of his life.

And it shows.

“My dad actually had an old set of weights, which I started dabbling with when I was 13 and 14,” the 36-year-old full-time personal trainer tells me.

Lawler, clearly bitten by the iron big, got serious about weight training around the time he was 16. He hasn’t stopped since. And he doesn’t plan to anytime soon.

“Your life expectancy is directly correlated  to your strength at any age.”

Lift long, live long.

Watch for Lawler to be featured soon in my weekly Keeping Fit newspaper column.
