We’re on a mission to help people get off the Frail Trail…and on the StrongPath, so they can live longer, happier, disease-free lives.
What Makes Us Different
StrongPath transforms healthcare into wellcare by bridging the gap between medicine and exercise physiology. We believe wholeheartedly that preserving muscle mass strength and function via exercise and a healthy diet can help prevent disease and extend lifespan. StrongPath assures that one doesn’t stop exercising because they age… rather, they age because they stop exercising.
How We Got Started
When our co-founder Fred Bartlit, was in his 60s, he noticed that all of his friends stopped skiing with him.
Meanwhile, Fred continued to not only ski, but also to lift weights, play golf, swim and run. Everyone his age seemed to slow down, but Fred felt stronger and better than ever. And he set out to find out why.
Many medical professionals told Fred that muscle deterioration was simply a natural part of the aging process. But he refused to accept that answer. If that were the case, then why did he feel so great?
Fred soon discovered the importance of building muscle and how doing so can help people to live longer—and most importantly, healthier—lives.
Shortly after, Fred met Steven, who was recovering from cancer and valley fever fungal pneumonia. In 2012, Steven was rushed to the hospital, where he ended up having cardiac bypass surgery.
Just three months post-surgery, Steven returned to the gym, ignoring his doctor’s advice to not do anything more strenuous than walking. And as a result, his health drastically improved.
Today, Fred, 87 years old, and Steven, 68 years old, both feel strong, healthy and even better than they did in their 20s. All thanks to the StrongPath method.
Fred and Steven created StrongPath to help you regain your strength and get healthier, so you can live the second half of your life just like (or even better than) the first half.
“We have proof the second half of life can be just as wonderful as the years of our youth.” -Fred Bartlit
