Anthony Kiedis: Over 50 and Red Hot

When Anthony Kiedis from the Red Hot Chili Peppers came on stage Sunday night the first thing that came to my mind was, "damn, he looks good". The second thing was, "I wonder how old he is". So obviously I went right to google and did some research. The information I found went above and beyond what I was expecting to learn.

Anthony is 51 years old. He is a dad of a 5 year old boy who is named after his favorite band, his godfather was Sonny Bono, and he was voted sexiest male vegan by PETA. Because he seems so fit and healthy, it surprised me to learn that Anthony had actually been an avid drug user and heroin addict in the past. He even contracted the hepatitis C virus from his experimentation. He was addicted to some bad things, that were draining his life. These days instead of shooting heroin, Kiedis is addicted to things that are actually good for him. He focuses on his health, fitness, and family.

Although I wasn't in as deep as Anthony, I could relate to his story in the sense that I use to spend my time doing things that were bad for me instead of good. When I started getting into health and fitness, my life completely changed for the better. At times, yes I feel like I am 100% addicted to living a healthy lifestyle, but is that so bad? If I am going to be addicted to something I would rather it be something that will help my health and overall enjoyment of life. Now that my healthy habits are in place, I am also addicted to helping others get there as well. Health and fitness are my drug, and I wan't to get everyone I know hooked!

fitness motivation, be inspired

We can learn a lot from Anthony Kiedis. Just because right now you may be into some bad, negative shit does not mean that you can not turn it around. If you want to change you can, but you have to make a change to see a change. If you are interested in making a change in your life I invite you to contact me. I'm not saying it is easy, but I promise you it will be worth it!
