Ep. 55 – The Wellness Roadmap – with Allan Misner

Just before his 39th birthday, Allan Misner had a wakeup call. While vacationing at a tropical resort, he tried to play volleyball, but got too tired to stay in the game. Once an athlete, he had let himself go as work stress, a toxic relationship and, frankly, poor health choices had gotten him to well over 250 pounds – a situation that may seem far too familiar to many of us.

As Allan sat on the beach, the water lapping at his feet, he realized he needed to make a change and decided to improve his lifestyle and reclaim his fitness.

Over the next eight years, he rode countless waves of wellness and fatness. It was this rollercoaster ride that made him realize that a decision wasn’t enough. So, one day, while lying on the bed of a hotel room, hung-over and fat again, he made a commitment to his health and well-being.

Today, Allan Misner is a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer and a Functional Aging Institute (FAI) Certified Functional Aging Specialist, the creator of the thriving 40+ Fitness Community, and the host of the 40+ Fitness Podcast.

Allan is also the author of a new book chronicling the path to transforming your health, The Wellness Roadmap: A Straightforward Guide to Health and Fitness After 40.


You’re not alone.

If this story sounds familiar to you, know that you’re not alone. I’ve been there, and so many other people are struggling as well:

  • 76% of the workforce say they are “struggling” or “suffering” in their physical wellbeing
  • 39.8% of U.S. adults aged 20 and over have obesity, including 7.6% with severe obesity, and another 31.8% are classified as overweight
  • 12.2% of US adults have diabetes

You’re not alone, and you don’t have to feel stuck anymore.


What is The Wellness Roadmap?

This book is not the weight loss equivalent of get rich quick. It is not biohacking, not a diet book, and not a workout book.

The Wellness Roadmap is about building a healthy lifestyle through patience, persistence, and progression. You can think of this it as a Wellness GPS for anyone over the age of 40 who wants to be happier, healthier, and more fit.


Why did Allan write the book?

“I want readers to understand that wellness is not just weight loss, or a particular look. Wellness is about being the happiest, healthiest, most fit person you can be. You don’t get that with restrictive diets or extreme workouts.”


Make a better resolution.

As we head into the New Year and you start thinking about your resolution to get healthy in 2019 – which is quite possibly not your first time making this resolution – I highly recommend grabbing a copy of the book to help you succeed this time around, instead of becoming one of the nearly 92% of people that fail!
