I’m Gary Stark, the Old Mountain Goat of age 62. I have lived in Estes Park, Colorado since 1985. Living just minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park for so long, it was hard getting on new hiking trails. I didn’t have any more time to hike, so I needed to increase my pace. I started jogging and then running the trails. When I was running up a trail and bounding on the rocks past some resting hikers, one of them commented, “Look at that old mountain goat run!” The name “Old Mountain Goat” stuck.

My dad started having heart problems in his late 40’s and died from a stroke in his early 70’s. When I found out my bloodwork numbers were bad, I knew I had to do something. I trimmed down as I started running, but was shocked that my blood pressure, triglycerides, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels didn’t improve. After a lot of research, I have improved all of my numbers tremendously in a couple of years. As most trainers will tell you, it is 80% nutrition and 20% training. I am a certified fitness nutrition coach now and have done the research to get myself in shape. Find out what keeps this Old Mountain Goat feeling younger and competing younger.
