Hi and A very warm welcome to X Boom Fitness!
I started this site as I came back to fitness in my mid to late thirties & now in my forties. I've struggled through many challenges and continue to update my learning through paid programs, instructional courses and memberships to elite fitness coaching programs with the industries leading lights and experienced professionals (retired bodybuilders, health and fitness and mobility experts).
On this site I'm sharing plenty of techniques and tips for Generation X and Baby Boomers to reclaim and retain their shape. I have a vested interest in people in this age group as i have plenty of experience battling against time, motivation, pain and spinal injuries.
This site is ideal for anyone in their 30s and 40s + beyond, that wants to get back in shape, and achieve effective results without wasting their time on stuff that doesn't work. I have tried scores of workouts, strength building, hardcore bodybuilding, mobility, cardio, and even self defensive routines over the last decade.
I also have rejoined an MMA gym, after first getting involved in Brazilian Jui-Jitsu in my early 20's. After an 18 year lay off, you certainly have to make some mental and physical adjustments to hold your own against flexible, injury free people 20 years your younger.
Even if you don't intend to take any self defense, or fight style classes, you can still marry these exceptional fun and simple techniques into your exercise and strength building routines. And NO, there will be no bowing or Zen meditation.
On this site you can expect to see less of crash diets, mystic yoga routines and impossible workouts, and more practical tried and tested and imaginative routines dealing with pain, mobility, psychology, posture and stuff that actually works! You will also find a healthy mix of exercise machines and training gear being reviewed on a regular basis.
XBoom Fitness is for mere mortals like you and me who are sick of all the hype in the fitness industry that just doesn't cut it for busy individuals with families and work schedules reducing their time and motivation. Believe it or not but this site was put together with the latest advice available from science, and experience and not just inflated opinion.
You will see many reference links to scientific research studies throughout the site which back up and further explain the research findings mentioned in the articles.
Onwards and upwards,
