Gav Gillibrand is a fitness and nutrition expert specializing in helping busy executives lose 20-30lbs in 12 weeks and become great role models for their kids WITHOUT giving up carbs and other fun stuff from their lives.
When Gav was in his 20s during his stripping and dancing days, he would often make fun of the other guys who always took time to exercise and stretch before a show. Gav felt that he was sexy enough to need any stretching.
Giving in to age and poor health
When Gav was in his 40s, his body started caving. He got a neck injury and a spinal injury that caused his left arm to be slightly paralyzed. Gav was out of action for two or three years. Three years later, he had two meniscus surgeries on his knee. He is currently in the middle of a hip and back injury.
Gav’s worst mistake ever was ignoring his health in his 20s, and now he is trying to repair the damage.
Your health is better than your looks or money
You may have a sexy look, but your sexy body will not be of help to you if you are sick. It doesn’t matter how much money you’ve got or how big your car or house is; if you have poor health, it is all worthless.
Think of your health as a risk management strategy
