MEET RANDY SMITH
There Are certain qualities you will find in all winners—a strong mental fortitude, the willingness to work through pain, and a strong desire to overcome all obstacles. More than 40 million people over the age of 40 are redefining what was called “middle-aged.” Just a generation ago, hitting 40 meant you reached your prime and it was all downhill from there. And now, many people believe that once you reach 50 years of age, that it is too late in life to reach for physical excellence.
