The original foundations of MyHealthandFitness began in 1985, having been originally named SRATE (Speed-Strength, Resistance and Training Education), which seemed too technical for the general fitness buff. A few years later the name was changed to Advanced Fitness Concepts as Dr. Tindall (our founder) was at the time very involved in training serious to extreme fitness for executive protection specialists, martial artists, and military special operations interests for extreme physical performance during crises. In June 1996, the name was finally changed to MyHealthandFitness and is distinctive in that we were the first “My” website on the Internet, preceding My Space by 7 years. Directly after this, Dr. Tindall was working and training collegiate and professional athletes at the University of Colorado – working with Doc “E.J.” Kries, Donnie Maib and Dave Pletl, as well as continued work with professional NFL players and other professional athletes.
MyHealthandFitness was developed to assist young and old alike, male and female, in the achievement of individual health, nutrition, fitness, and training goals.
Since its founding, Dr. Tindall has continued training world-class professional athletes such as former IFBB Fitness Pro’s Stacy Simons and Carla Sanchez and her Performance Ready team, notable gymnasts such as Suzanne Pearson, as well as many other professional NFL athletes, special operations personnel and, average individuals on their path to good health, fitness, or specific skills development. This site was in large part, built for the latter.
Our site is the result of 30-years experience in the field of fitness, training, health, and nutrition. There are only two parts to your fitness program: 1) get started and 2) slowly increase your intensity. The goal of MyHealthandFitness is to help you do just that.
The concepts and information within this site are for children who want to be fit, to begin that first strength-training program the proper way, and for those who aspire to be world-class athletes of the future. They are for high school athletes who desire to earn that scholarship and perhaps elevate to professional status. And, they are for the professional athletes who wants to be the very best and compete on the world stage!
The concepts and information found herein are for women who want to be generally fit or in superb athletic conditioning and physique for an upcoming IFBB Fitness Competition or other athletic even; for women who are pregnant and desire to know the proper training methods to use for continued fitness until and after childbirth; for women who want to know more about the effects of osteoporosis and exercise in regard to individual health, menstruation, and other areas of fitness that are specifically related to women.
This site is for men who want to become fit and stay fit, from a general fitness level, playing in city-league ball tournaments or even for achieving an advanced athletic status level and participating in iron-man competitions.
This site is for the professional athlete who wishes to develop greater skills in his or her sport and learn methods of speed-strength training that will enhance his or her natural abilities.
