interesting article on losing fitness

Interesting article, if a little unfocused (the discussion of aging was a weird non-sequitur when discussing controllable, shorter time-horizon behaviors like going to the gym). Only thing I would've liked to see is a discussion of how much (if at all) previously achieving a certain level of fitness makes it easier to achieve in the future - obviously difficult to impossible to measure in a controlled-trial type setting, which is probably why it wasn't; but it'd make me feel better about having put all that work in during high school (varsity swimming) then being a bit of a slug the past several years.
