Globetrotter Stays in Shape with Bodyweight & Resourcefulness


I started lifting weights in 1983, the year we moved from Germany to Canada. In 1984, I started reading your column in M&F and subsequently ordered your book Ripped, along with a tank top and shorts.

I have been following your fitness journey since and needless to say, you have been quite an inspiration for my health and fitness training goals.

At almost 54, slightly older than you when I first read about you, I saw your recent interview on Rx Muscle and am glad to see you are doing well.

My wife Dorothy and I are traveling the Southwest US on the way to Mexico in our self converted and contained home on wheels, a former FedEx delivery truck. We are likely passing through Albuquerque in April, on our way back to Ontario. I am wondering if you would be interested in meeting with us?

Kindest regards and best wishes,

Andi Mell

Hello Again Clarence,

We made it into Mexico without any problems, crossing at Lukeville AZ. Since then the world has gone crazy with the shutdowns; we don't know when we will be able to head back to Ontario, nor do we think there is any benefit for us to be there, given the local situation.

So far everything is still pretty sane here in San Carlos, extra precautions are taken, but our grocery choices and supplies remain available. Everything still feels safe, everyone is still courteous and kind. The south of Mexico is a different story with local uprisings. Except for protests at the Nogales border, Sonora seems to be just fine.

We were looking forward to meeting with you and Carol. Although you weren't my initial inspiration to start weight lifting, you were the major inspiration for my direction in fitness training. I loved seeing your progress through the years, as maintaining physical performance and functional longevity has become my priority.

I am not sure when we will travel back north, so I thought I'd send pictures of our FedEx house on wheels and my exercise set up.

Kindest regards and best wishes,

Andi Mell
