I recently interviewed Errick McAdams for DragonDoor.com - working on these interviews is one of my absolute favorite "tasks". Getting to know and share these success stories is incredibly rewarding, and I always look forward to learning more about other people drawn to the HKC, RKC and PCC. The stories are varied as everyone starts from a different point -- some have always been athletic and played team sports in high school and/or college, others like Maggie Fazeli Fard, the Senior Fitness Editor of Experience Life Magazine discovered their athleticism as an adult.
Not many of you know this, but I really began fitness in earnest at about age 30. While I'd been very aware of gyms, and had lifted weights (freeweights and machines) at Gold's all summer every summer home from college starting in 1996, before trying all manner of "womens workouts" most of which were based on the bodybuilding model we had back then. They worked to a point... and I probably didn't know what I was doing much either... But I wasn't getting the "shape I wanted" at the time. And well, unless it was summer and too hot to be outside, I must admit I was bored. So, I tried other things for several years with limited success. (Some of which--bellydancing--would make for some amusing "throwback Thursday" material for sure.)
