2016 Approaches…

…but don’t look back…

Don’t look down either…







2016 is going to be the year where you actually achieve those fitness goals.

Some say that I’ve done quite enough preaching about fitness. But the blog gives me the chance to share pictures of the brightest and best in fitness and gym activity, not least acrobatics and wrestling thrown in as well. Obviously, I’m in the business of performance and coaching, and therefore of fitness too by necessity. So you know, without me saying any more, what I think that the New Year Resolution of any reasonably fit male ought to be – whatever his age!


Remember – it’s not about bigger. It’s about better. ‘Bigger’ can be the goal, if you are a bodybuilder, but it doesn’t have to be. The goal should be fitter. That may mean stronger. It may mean more flexible. It may mean better cardiovascular function. It may mean achieving some skill you’ve always wanted to achieve, but never quite made it.

Keep it natural. No drugs. It’s never worth that. Just: ‘I’m going to work at being better’.



If possible find yourself a workout partner…

…you’ll encourage each other.

If your world seems all upside-down…

– if things don’t go right – seek solace with a bit of training. Doesn’t have to be in the gym. A run will work wonders. If  you’re lucky enough to be near it, you can take in some nice scenery on the way…



You’ll soon feel great about going shirtless in public…


You’ll be confident! And seriously proud that you put in the effort.

Here endeth the last lesson of 2015.

Stick around and see what 2016 brings us, and thanks for taking the trouble to come back here from time to time.

My friends and I wish everyone the best of good fortune in 2016.

Remember: tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life!

Enjoy! Up, up, and awaaaaaaay…

fall back


About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
