At the time when I interviewed David for this audio on ageing and strength for life, in 2002, he had just completed a thousand kilometre challenge cycling around Vietnam in temperatures of 90 degrees and 90% humidity; a fearsome challenge for anyone made more remarkable by the fact that David was 62 at the time.

Here, the trainer of elite athletes and Founder of the National Rehabilitation Centre for the Paralysed shares his unique insights to help us avoid the artificial barriers and false limitations society conditions us into.

With a philosophy rooted strongly in the practice of listening to the body, David explains to us how we can optimize our lifespan and approach ageing from an informed and empowered point of view, giving examples and insights he has come across, from Inuits in the Arctic to tribes people in Borneo.
