On this episode you'll hear my interview with entrepreneur, author and fitness enthusiast Jack Lowe. I reached out to Jack after reading an article on the Ageist media site. I'm fascinated by his successful business career and what Jack calls his "end of career story. " At almost 80 years old, he's on a mission to change the idea of aging.
Early this year, Jack Lowe released his new book Get Fit for Life: My Journey with Fitness, Health and Aging. You can find the book on Amazon.
With a lifelong passion for health, Jack was the driving force for the Fit for Life Foundation. The organization was founded in 2020 to support lifelong fitness and health.
