76-year old gym rat’s recipe for longevity

Live Long and Master Aging: Episode 84

Royce Smith lifts weights with his gym buddies every morning at 5am. Then he goes to work - at one of two companies he runs - and puts in a full day in the office. He competes in obstacle course events like the Spartan Race, has a busy family life and at the age of 76, enjoys the best of health. What is his secret?  In many ways Royce epitomizes a lifestyle that promotes a long health span. 

In this LLAMA podcast interview with Peter Bowes the California businessman explains how he maintains his rigorous daily routine; why he keeps pushing himself to take part in obstacle course races and how he is inspired to work out alongside younger athletes.  

This is the third and final episode in our mini series at Results Fitness, featuring older athletes.
