Choose Positive Living with Sara Troy and her guest Doug Setter aired July 12th-
I was born with a club foot and wore corrective shoes. I survived pneumonia three times by the time that I was six years old. Growing up in Surrey, I took my share of beatings. At age 18, I joined the army at the body weight of 120 pounds. I later gained 35 pounds of muscle, ran five full marathons and competed in kick-boxing in Canada and Hong Kong. At age 39, I went to university to earn a Bachelor of Human Ecology. At age 40, I won a welter weight kick-boxing championship. At age 47, I climbed Mount Rainier. I am the author of Stomach Flattening, Reduce Your Alcohol Craving, One Less Victim and an awarding winning teen novel: Selo.
To be the shy, skinny kid getting slammed around the school hallways or beat up in a parking lot, fishing dock and even a front living room was not a good time.
It definitely took a little soul-searching, research and trial-and-error to figure out that most of the mainstream advice about fitness, nutrition and self-defence, was very limited.
