Blog - The Big Five-O

Thanks for tuning in!

Our blog is designed to do a few things (hopefully all at once) and these are –

  • Educate
  • Entertain
  • Give Something Away

If we have achieved any of these then our mission is on track!

Heading headlong towards the age of 50 is an exciting thing. But there are also some nerves involved too. That’s why we have put together this blog. We want you to know that there are others on the same path. And we want to share with you some of the information we have picked up along the way.

That’s why this blog is a mix of practical advice and personal stories. We know what it feels like. And we want you to make sure that you approach this milestone with as much confidence as you can.


Men Approaching 50

Approaching the age of 50 changes the way we look at the world. For me, I’ve always wanted to live to 100. No real reason, just thought it would be a cool age to live to. And if that’s the case then I’m approaching the halfway mark of my life.

Now, some of the later years might not be the most active because of old age and poor health. But maybe some of the earlier years were living someone else’s life (your parents) so we’re still pretty much at the half way point in this thing we call life.

Things change. Your body won’t work the same way it did even a few years ago. But that doesn’t mean that it is ready for scrapheap yet! It’s just about learning the way it works now and rolling with it. I know for certain that I need to look after my body a little better over the next few years so my body will be ready for the following 50 years.

How about you?

We hope you get as much joy from reading this as we did from writing it. Good luck on your impending 50th. Remember that there’s so much positive to look forward to…

Why The Big Five-O Was Born

There are so many pressures for men approaching fifty. Our health and fitness levels are not what they used to be. Our kids pose a bigger challenge every day. Work, mental health and diet are everyday challenges. We can end up feeling crushed and ready to throw in the towel.

These feelings have often festered for many years. It’s a shock to the system if we stop and think about it.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

No more bring outraged by the endless supply of contradictory information online. The Big Five-O has been designed with you in mind.

We bring a breath of fresh air to your life. You’ll crave more and more. The good news? We are providing more information week after week.

Relief from the pressures of a forty-something life!
