Editor’s Note: On August 18, The Inertia’s EVOLVE Summit will celebrate people from the surf and outdoor worlds that use their influence to make a positive imprint on society. Gabrielle Reece will be speaking on a panel about health in the modern age and how we must work to find the best health practices for ourselves and make individual choices based on what works for our own bodies. Get tickets now.
What’s becoming truer for not only me but for Laird as well, is not being defined by age, especially as athletes. Roger Federer is 36 and people say it’s a miracle the way he’s playing tennis. Why is it a miracle? Pushing the boundaries of what defines age and health is important to us. But to really push you have to redefine what health is. It’s not just, “oh I’m going to learn yoga and eat kale.” Health is an overall approach, an incorporation of a lot of things.
