The Barbell Prescription isn't just a about exercise after fifty. It's about living after fifty.

It's about a powerful medicine that expands our horizons instead of shrinking them.

It's about an approach to exercise that focuses on what we can do rather than what we can't.

It's about integrating exercise, diet, sleep, and play into a vibrant way of life: the life of the

Athlete of Aging.

"As I approached my 75th birthday, I began noticing a decrease in strength. My son told me,"Go see Sully. He's the best coach in the country for your demographic."  My strength and stamina improved within weeks.  I've been training for 5 years, and at 80 years-of-age I'm able to remain in and maintain my own home, enjoy time with family and friends, garden, travel, and engage in new activities.  Going to Greysteel and training with Sully was one of the best decisions I've ever made."

"When I first started at Greysteel, I could barely stand up from the floor under my own power. I was told to go see Sully and do what he told I did. Before I knew it, I wasn't just standing up...I was standing up with a heavy barbell in my hands or on my back, feeling myself getting stronger instead of weaker. I have better control of my diabetes, more mobility, more energy, more muscle, and a better outlook on life. This has changed everything."

"The Barbell Prescription has changed my life.  Just three years ago, I was having difficulty walking up a set of stairs, or getting up from a seated position, without using my hands to assist.  I desperately tried anything to ease the pain and stop the physical decline – yoga, osteopathic manipulative treatment, sports massage, stretch therapy, etc. Nothing worked…until I met Sully. Within weeks, I felt stronger, more confident, and pain free. Now I cannot imagine life without lifting. At Greysteel, I know I have a supportive, knowledgeable, observant, goal-oriented coach who knows exactly how to keep me, safe, challenged, and strong."
