Welcome to DougKelsey.com

Hi, I’m Doug Kelsey.

My website is an online resource for people who want to learn more about injuries, aging, and wellness.

My purpose is to share tips, tools, and techniques on how to “actively age” – how to overcome aches & pains, get strong, flexible, agile and stay as healthy and fit as possible.

I offer practical ideas and tips on how to get healthier and more fit after forty, I avoid hype, controversy for the sake of being controversial and instead look to what the science and research has to say, what we know to be true, what works, what doesn’t, and why.

Just a quick note to tell you how much I appreciate that you cite published research to support your claims. Sooooooo many people don’t, and it makes my job harder. – Lacey B

Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll find here:

  • Proven tactics to beat injuries, get stronger, and slow the effects of aging.
  • Learn why eating certain foods can hinder recovery from injury and foster the feeling of being “old”.
  • Discover commonly used exercises that you should stop doing to protect your spine.
  • Avoid making a common mistake with your exercise routine that costs you several hours per week.
  • Learn how to build strength without lifting heavy weights.
  • Find out the one thing you must have to stay motivated.
  • Remove this one “food” from your diet and lower your risk of heart disease, heart attack, stroke, and Type II Diabetes.
  • And a lot more…

All of this is provided to you through an unusual blend of scientific research, my own experiments and over 30 years of clinical experience.

I believe the most unique thing about Doug compared to others is his global understanding of fitness, injury, the rebuilding process. Further, his uncanny and unique ability to apply the hard science of musculoskeletal/body health to the client in a fun, specific way is remarkable…Not to mention his extraordinary background in physical therapy really gives him a leg up on other trainers.- Ken Katz, MD

I have hundreds of articles on this site covering a wide range of topics. You can browse at your leisure, use the categories option in the side bar, or search the site.

I don’t have all the answers, but I’m glad to share what I know and have learned along the way.
