FatBoy takes on the Fitness Magazines and the Gym

My daughters from time to time call me, lovingly, FatBoy.  The name is oddly appealing (to me at least) and has gained some usage over the past couple of years.

I have noticed – maybe you have too – that fitness magazines for men target guys who are far younger than I am.  Maybe the marketers have figured that at middle age, you either already in shape and thus are in so-called “maintenance mode” or have given up the ghost on ever getting back in shape, so the money is in reaching the younger crowd.

I'm (not) the guy on the right!
