My name is Nigel Holland. I am 49 years old. So many people that I know that are in their 40’s and 50’s are acting so OLD! I’m not OLD. I don’t want feel OLD, I don’t want to look OLD.

I have one month until my 50th birthday, and I want to get in shape by then.

If I eat right, exercise, DON’T DRINK ALCOHOL, and sleep right, it should work.

Every day I am going to check in with you and keep you updated with my progress.

Hopefully when I am done, I can give the world a “ONE MONTH WORKOUT FOR OLD GUYS THAT DON’T WANT TO LOOK OLD”.

Keep checking in to see what happens.

Wish me luck!
