About my own journey
I am 50 years old and have been on my own fitness journey for longer than 10 years. During this journey I have learnt many lessons, made quite a few mistakes, used a variety of trainers and coaches and completed various studies. I intimately understand many of the struggles, such as breaking self-defeating habits, negative self talk and poor nutritional habits as well as physical issues. I have a misaligned hip, severe abdominal adhesions, asthma and allergies.

What does silverfox mean?
A silver fox is a slang term for an older man, generally with gray or graying hair, who is considered attractive, charming, and classy.
How is term pronounced?
[ sil-ver foks ]
News and entertainment outlets regularly publish lists of the top silver foxes of the moment. The men who end up on these lists are (often white) models, actors, or TV personalities such as George Clooney, Anderson Cooper, and Steve Carell. Here, silver fox suggests the men have become sexier with age and exude a kind of old-school class and charm.
While silver fox is most often used to describe attractive, older men, it can also be used to refer to older women. Attractive older women, especially those who have refused to dye their naturally graying hair, are sometimes called silver vixen, such as Helen Mirren or Jamie Lee Curtis
Silverfox (one word) is also the name of a Marvel Comics Universe character, a mutant from the X-Men series who can appear younger than she is and can hypnotize anyone she touches.
