HarrySpeaksMy talks engage people in a Socratic-style, interactive discussion, and I promise that audience members — from the never-ever exercised to the hard-charging athlete — will be inspired to change something in his or her exercise and/or eating habits. Please contact me to discuss availability and other details.

Sample Subjects

I can tailor talks on fitness and healthy eating around the interests and fitness level of your group. Whatever the topic and when possible, I like to engage the audience in a dialogue versus lecturing.

Retaining Your Brain – What Can You Do?

We all hope that we never experience any form of dementia, particularly Alzheimer’s. Is it in the genes, or is there something that we can do to defer, or even prevent, the development of dementia? I’ll discuss the latest research and outline what we can do to improve our chances of retaining a healthy brain.

Getting Going and Keeping Going: What Does It Take?

Most adults who start a program of fitness and healthy eating quit after a few weeks. They begin with the best of intentions, but struggle to stay on course. I’ll discuss techniques that will help people get started and stay motivated to live a healthier life.

Fitness Goes Deeper Than Fat

Is it better to be fit and overweight or unfit and slender? Some struggle to lose weight and keep it off and, as a result, may not realize the merits of exercising regardless of weight.

Aerobics: How and Why

The goal of any exercise program should be to obtain the best results within the time allotted. I’ll discuss why going aerobic – exercising at 60 to 70 percent of maximum heart rate – is important to achieving results, as well as why getting anaerobic – exercising at a higher rate – is equally valuable. I’ll share how to get more done in less time.

Strength Training – Retaining Stability and Mobility

Very few adults participate in a regular program of strength training, and even fewer do so at a level that will help retain muscle mass. I’ll discuss why strength training is important to our daily lives as we age and how it can be done to provide benefits without injury..

Healthy Eating – Small Changes Can Be Large

Over 90 percent of those who diet gain the weight back within a short time. I’ll discuss the difference between a lifestyle change and a diet and outline the steps to achieve long-term success.

Overcoming Limitations

I’ll share a few inspiring stories of what individuals have done to improve their fitness and life in spite of significant health problems and other obstacles.
