Live Long and Master Aging - Episode 45

For many of us, January means a new start, with fresh energy and vigor to live the best life possible. The first few days of the year come with a sense of purpose that helps put our lives into perspective. Fitness coach Alwyn Cosgrove sees it as a “magical” time, when people can change and create new habits.  Alwyn was born in Scotland and initially exposed to fitness training through competitive martial arts.  He went on to study Sports Performance at West Lothian College and achived an honors degree in Sports Science from the University of Liverpool. He is a cancer survivor and the co-owner of Results Fitness in Santa Clarita, California, which has twice been named one of America’s Top Gyms by Men’s Health Magazine.  In this in-depth interview Alwyn explains his scientific approach to fitness and his insatiable appetite for new, data-driven studies on exercise. He also shares his renewed appreciation for the simple but “amazing” things in life, after being re-born, cancer-free.
