Elderly ‘Exercise’

Elderly ‘Exercise’

Michael Ryan

Recorded conversation with my teacher, Jozef Frucek.
Dated December 10th 2016.

There’s no denying what Jozef is saying, but rarely would anyone articulate these thoughts. It’s a brutal truth, that we will all grow old and die. So much so that we often trick ourselves into thinking that it will never be us.

“I’m not saving lives and I might not be helping anyone at all, but after this conversation, my priorities in organizing training sessions changed. I hope and believe for the better. It’s not really about exercise, fitness, movement or whatever. The foundation is built on authentic communication between people. And if we both care and believe, then maybe something great will happen.”
