David Frost Master Fitness Trainer

On any day which ends in a “y” Koach Dave Frost can be found training others, teaching learners of all ages, Moving to sweat, or doing charitable work for both wounded warriors and under-served youth.

For his R&R, Dave enjoys the Vitamin D offered by Southern California weather while rowing competitively or trail-hiking, serving as Grandpa Frosty, or sharing sea stories with his service pals and US Naval Academy alumni.

He also writes academic papers about 21st-century workplaces and knowledge workers as those most valuable players.

Koach Dave wrote KABOOMER: Thriving and Striving into your 90s  for a serious and committed subset of Baby Boomers, keying on his personal experiences and professional expertise. He is a Master Fitness Trainer, an award-winning adjunct professor, a proud grandfather, a world-ranked oarsman, and a communications expert. Many moons ago, he was an Eagle Scout, a 5-gallon Blood Donor, an Outstanding College Athlete of America (1975), and a decorated naval officer in Cold War days.

Yes, he is a mid-cycle Baby Boomer. But more, he chooses to do those “little bits extra” to better his chances to party past 90. This book is his “talk the walk” almanac to help many others on their own journeys past Medicare age.

Be a KABOOMER too!

AI Spellcheck Wait, wait… I didn’t use ChatGPT or Google’s BARD to “genAIrate” this post. I promise. And, I didn’t misspell Tocsins in this posted title. Credit Artificial Intelligence (AI) is pretty neat for many applications, and I am a cheerleader for things that serve society. Yet, it will be many moons before a down-aging AI application is ready for you or me.  So here we go with my run-of-the-mill intelligence warnings. Tocsins As I’m not an English Ph.D. or a cunning linguist, I can’t say for certain that Tocsins and Toxins are homonyms or homophones. Words can be fun a…

The slang noun, Jabroni, expanded beyond its original use in professional wrestling to social media after the AFC Championship football game. We credit the Sheik and the Rock for their roles in getting this interesting noun into the dictionary: A few weeks ago, the KC Chiefs’ Travis Kelce challenged the Cincinnati mayor for his rather uppity comment. Kelce tweeted, “Don’t be a Jabroni”; Not endearing, but still utilitarian… You see, a Jabroni is a recruited underdog that cannot prevail against a superior force. Think of the also-ran team recruited to face the Harlem Globetrotters in…

Yes, I have been missing in action since late 2022. Oh, that my time away was spent on some enchanted island. Yet I have been head down and tail up finalizing my manuscript for Strong to Save.  This second non-fiction work is a fitness primer that implores Gen X to die harder and later…   You see, resistance (aka weight) training is a superlative down-aging and life-enhancing exercise. Period. A conceptual front cover for Strong to Save: Your Gen X imperative to die harder and later is shared to get your sarcomeres flexing. Now, it is about time to chat about Pizza and National Heart Mon…

Yes, I’ve been missing in action from weblogs. If I was still a Naval Academy Midshipman, I’d brace up and say NO EXCUSE Ma’am or Sir!  Yet that was many moons ago. My STRONG TO SAVE manuscript took precedence. So Generation X readers – be on the lookout fgr a Book release in mid-2023. Why did I choose the main Title STRONG to SAVE? And why will the sub-title focus on Generation X? There are three reasons for my title’s choice: I used to sing Eternal Father, Strong to SAVE as a venerable hymn for seafarers like me. There is just about nothing as important as Physical Strength to …

28 “As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.” Seneca Thanks to the Swedish Son of Stone (aka SoS) whose recent lyrics in 28 Summers Left fit me to a T: “Let’s make something great Of what is left now And focus on things That we have got now.” In a Camden interview about his unique rather unique song-writing, SoS confided that a theme of his music is “about the will to get back up again when life knocked you down…”  Not a bad theme for life – is it? One longevity study, that I believe to be darned accurate, suggests that with work and…

Power is my theme for this potpourri of topics squeezed into one.

Weird In Shakespeare’s day, weird meant ‘having the power to control destiny’. Witches in the Bard’s MACBETH  gave rise to the sense ‘unearthly’ as Fates. With more than passing amusement, I noted that a once-in-lifetime “weird” astrological alignment happened yesterday. In full and open disclosure, I do peek at astrological predictions while wondering how much merit it is for both Jupiter and Neptune to align with Pisces after a period of 166 years.  Could it be that I and we “can expect a “mystical-slash-creative renaissance on both micro (personal) and macro …

Guess Who? The Guess Who first sang its classic, NO TIME, in the summer of 1969. Ah, memories of those tough teen times come to me easily. Whether these NO TIME lyrics mean something profound or mean nothing is up to a listener to decide. Was it a Vietnam draft commentary by a Canadian? Or a reverse Dear John letter? I wonder why lyricist Randy Bachman first intended with this phrase: “Seasons change and so do I…” So, here I muse on the first day of Spring, 2022.  Do I invest a load of time thinking about my pro and con changes since 1969?  Or, should I invest my time and energy in f…

Savings?! I am a firm believer in savings for one’s fiscal AND physical bank account.  But for sunlight? Not so much… You may recall that I applaud the legendary Muddy Waters who cautioned in song, “you know you can’t spend what you haven’t got.” You’ve made it into Daylight Saving Time, version 2022. That is unless you live in the smart states of Hawaii, Arizona that believe in standards. In full and open disclosure – for most of my 7-decades, I thought this annual time robbing move by our Government was plural – as in SAVINGS. Not! Our US Senate (that term stems from the s…

Sixty-nine?! I offer 69 as an upper number of fitness years, of filling in the holes of life, rather than alluding to an urban dictionary term. As the world, worm and COVID turn, I relish this chance to reflect on my 69 laps around our sun. Wow – we’re in our third year of the New Abnormal life caused by a virus. Oy!   I advocate that seventy is the new forty, so this Pisces is truly looking forward to his 70th orbit.  I hope that my lessons learned to this point may help you as well… If you are reading this post, you are a co-survivor of a scary and deadly pandemic.

‘Tis The Season Happy Twelfth Night of this Holiday season. Citing the Bard in Act 2, “In delay there lies no plenty.” His Twelfth Night romance also had desire as a theme, so let’s build on such desire without delay… If you are like me, most Christmas trimmings are tucked away, and resolve for healthy habits in our New Year of 2022 is percolating.  Note that I didn’t write “resolution”, as the batting average for New Year’s Resolutions is not laudable. You’ve probably been besieged by year-end and New You platitudes, so I intend to avert those. What we Professional Traine…

Advent Before sharing my thoughts on Hallmarks as “proofs” of your KABOOMER excellence, I sadly note the passage of a great American. RIP Senator! One of our Greatest Generation, Kansan Bob Dole, faded away yesterday. This Image is from his postwar recovery years after his left arm was shattered in combat. Credit: NBC News Dole was the real deal for sacrifice and selfless service. I dedicate this Hallmark post to those of his generation who fought the good fight to make our crazy world a finer place to live, work and play. If that Army hero will allow me to share a naval saying with which…

MOVEMBER Gratitude I’m not a legend in my own mind…Nor is my feather duster a mustache of legends. This post’s title line came from an organizational thank-you for my annual contribution to the international MOVEMBER Movement. That Movement publicizes sad, yet often preventable, aspects of men’s mental and physical well-being. Aspects with descriptors like: too young and too deadly. Did you know that U.S. men experience prostate cancer at about the same rate as do women for breast cancer?  And …Men are at higher risk for suicide. And…Men are generally outlived by women.

Micronutrition is critical to KABOOMER livelihood. Yet, as KABOOMERs' birthday candles grow in number, their capacity and ability to absorb and replenish tiny "vita" elements and compounds diminish.  Further, each KABOOMER faces unique conditions - age, possible gluten intolerance, drug prescriptions - that can impact livelihood.  This podcast addresses three categories of available MicroNutrients - minerals, vitamins, and Phyto compounds.  Koach Dave highlights a few - including "the missing link of regeneration."  He cites an assertion by double-Nobel winner, Linus Pauling, that we can "…

Our bodily processes of inflammation are good and bad, pro and con,  or yin and yang.

Our national and global demographics are shifting seismically to older and old. The oldest-old segment of global populations (85+ years of age) is growing in a non-linear Fashion.  A Billion-Dollar Bet between researchers named Austad and Olshansky is over whether "average" life expectancies will reach ONE HUNDRED by the year 2050.  Your AK-67 podcaster is intrigued by this bet.   Yet I'm more concerned about Healthspan than Lifespan. About half of one's longevity is from nature - our inherited double helixes.  As a wellness advocate, I hope to promote simple yet hard chores and activities…
