Envision yourself at 90 years old. What do you want to be able to do, physically? Perhaps it’s as simple as walking up two flights of stairs or playing on the floor with your great-grandkids.

While these activities may sound “simple” today, your body will naturally decline with age. Knowing this, imagine how much more you need to be able to do today to easily do these “simple” activities at 90 years old.

In my practice, we call this backcasting, or reverse-engineering. We break down and train the movements of everyday life, outlining how “good” you need to be today to achieve your goals tomorrow.

  1. Hi Peter, I’d like to talk to you at some point on plantar fasciitis. I’m a podiatrist and have treated this for decades. My understanding and corresponding treatment gets very high results in a short period of time. Rarely is the need for surgery or steroid injections(very common ). I read your links on this and to me, they are antiquated and frankly have a poor understanding of the pathomechanics
