About Me


First off, I’m a closet writer, and would like to come out of the closet soon!

I have been blogging on and off since the late 90’s, but not actively from mid 2005 thru mid 2012.  I have a background in Architecture, and have owned my own residential design firm from 1997 thru 2006.  The economy forced me to close up shop, but I am in transition to open up shop again.  My desire to design structures is strong.

So, why a Fitness Blog?  Well, I have another blog called Paul-Kohler.net, which i really write about all other things.  But as Fitness and being healthy is an important topic for many people, I decided to create this place.

I am by no means a health freak, or a fitness god, but I am a 40 something guy that is trying to get better about how I feel and look.  I have never been an athletic type, and the more I get into it, the more I wish I would have started a long time ago.

Beyond writing as a hobby (hopefully to be come a career someday), I enjoy hiking in the mountains.  I enjoy fishing (although I do not fish half as often as I would like).  I enjoy building things from wood.  I love sports, specially football (Go Bronco’s!).  I live in one of the best towns in the nation (Littleton, CO) with my wife, teenage daughter ( your apology is accepted) and 2 cats.

If you would like to contact me, feel free to email me at live2dive@gmail.com (yes, I scuba dive, and I love it!), I look forward to hearing from you.

  One Response to “About Me”

  1. Thank you so much for posting your running program. My daughter, a college senior wanted to do an upcoming 5K for organ donor families held at her college the end of April to honor her father. I volunteered to do it with her. I needed a plan to help me go from couch potato, “I wouldn’t run unless someone was chasing me with an axe” type person. I have just started week 2. At times, especially the first day, I thought it was hopeless. And I often have to force myself to do it. But each time is (slightly) easier. I may not be able to actually run the whole 3 miles but I won’t have to just walk the entire thing either. We are already talking about doing another 5K in May or June just to see our improvement (and as an excuse to keep “training”). I am only on week 2 but so far I have been able to stick with the run/walk time plan so I feel quite successful. (did I mention that I will turn 64 in August?!) Thanks again, without your post I wouldn’t have had a plan to follow and most likely would have quit by now.
