Is 60 The New 30? Do You Know Your Biological Age?

We all know our chronological age, but are we aware of what our biological age really is? Not too many people do actually. Scientific knowledge has advanced to the point where this can be tested accurately. Once tested, the results will reveal what avenues can be taken to improve our overall health. You could be pushing 60 but biologically be calibrating at 72 because your cells aren’t getting enough oxygen, or your hormonal balance is off. The BioFit program has the ability to help you reverse those statistics, so that at age 60 chronologically, you are biologically at the age of 32, or substantially younger.


Getting proper exercise and eating healthy foods is the normal approach. What is missing is the accuracy of exactly what you need.

The BioFit Center and their well-qualified staff, work closely with your Doctors to fine tune the type of exercise, the proper supplementation and appropriate diet you need. If you added up all of the things you think you are supposed to do, and take to become healthy, from supplements like vitamin C to probiotics to flax seed oil, you have probably already spent a small fortune. Taking the guess work out of the equation, will actually save you money and more importantly will give you the results you are looking for which are to look and feel younger than your age.

Aging is an ‘Energy Production Deficit Disorder’. Biological energy production, on the other hand, boosts the cells of the body with vitality and better function. When do we start going ‘down hill’? Most agree that it occurs around the age of 30, when metabolism slows down, weight loss is harder; strength often diminishes, as does stamina. It is a slow process not always experienced until you really feel like you are loosing your youth around 40. The sooner one takes the steps to better health the better.

The visionary founder of the BioFit concept, Bill Cortright, is an internationally acclaimed Wellness Coach and speaker. Having gone through his own health crisis, his level of commitment and compassion is unsurpassed. One of hurdles that he crossed was that of obesity, which is an extremely difficult hurtle to overcome and keep it under control for a lifetime. In his 20’s he experienced the ordeal of losing and gaining 100 pounds three times, which puts such stress on the body and the mind. Out of adversity, often comes a passion that is far greater than anything else. When motivation is this strong, miraculous things can be created. This is what happened to Bill, and BioFit was created from that place of passion to serve others on their path to wellness.

Bill Cortright, founder of BioFit

The BioFit Program’s new and innovative approach is the result of over twenty-five year of Bill’s personal research and experience.
After trying everything in the market, he realized that nothing worked on a long-term basis and began to find his own answers.

Bill’s journey toward finding a more scientific approach to weight loss began in 1983 when he joined the US Navy. During his 5-year career in the Navy Bill worked in the Great Lakes Naval Hospital in the family practice and primary care clinics. This work experience and the knowledge acquired during this time was the groundwork for the scientific approach that he used to create what today is known as the BioFit Program.

During his Navy career Bill also worked as an athletic petty officer (APO) and was in charge of leading the company through their boot camp exercise. Bill became the “go to” person for fitness advice and he began to create a following due to the fact that everyone he advised achieved unprecedented health and fitness goals.

Bill’s innovative concept successfully integrates science and medical principals with his unique approach to health and fitness. After leaving the Navy Bill opened the first personal training studio in Miami, Florida. During this time in Bill’s career, he became the first Health and Fitness professional to work with active adults in their 70’s 80’s and 90’s. This experience marked a new direction in Bill’s career since he began to research and study the effects of exercise and nutrition as people age.

During his years in Florida, Bill gave lectures on Corporate Wellness to companies such as American Airlines, Continental Hotels, Northern Trust Banks, Adidas, Coca Cola Co. Burger King Corp. Dell Computers and many others.           



Panama makes it easy to live a healthy life. Tropical climate and beauty, combined with a more laid-back philosophy, set a foundation for potentially living a very stimulating, yet healthy, lifestyle when balanced in daily life. Not only is Panama a pleasure for the eye, but the country enables a renewal of the mind, body and spirit.
