I spent 15 years repairing slate roofs (wanted to climb mtns for a living, but the pay isn’t as good). If you can do ballet, 40 feet in the air hanging on a rope, with 20 lbs of tools, and 30 lbs of slate, Physical fitness is a irrelevant. Right now I’m getting physical therapy for the muscles, I abused, and seeing a arthritis specialist. They are telling my right arm biceps will be fixed in June, or off to the more invasive stuff. Not so sure that is viable at 63. I lifted weights in high school, but have always gotten enough exercise doing dumb things as an adult. I may have to change that. :(:(:(Loose muscle tone faster as you get old, and it is harder to get it back. Never expected to live past 30.
