Guy Leech, former World Ironman Champion and professional athlete from 1984 to 1995, will compete in the Perth beaches Indian Ocean Classic on Jan. 28, 2012.

Proclaimed as ‘the fittest 40-year-old on the planet’, Leech, 47, is a promoter of the Ironman Series and a health and fitness expert that runs training programs for men and women as well as high profile sporting identities such as Layne Beachley.

Over the years, Leech has noticed two significant changes in his lifestyle.

“It definitely takes longer to recover than previously. I am 47 now, but I can still train hard. I just need longer to recover,” said Leech. “Life now revolves around being healthy and spending time around family and business as well. I try to work on that balance as much as I can.”

Leech, believes that the key to living a healthy life revolves around balance.

“It is important to think about balance constantly. It is the only way to keep on top of it,” said Leech. “It is an 80/20 concept. Keep 80 percent good intake, and indulge the other 20 percent of the time and keep the fun in the routine.”

Good nutrition is also vital says Leech.

“Eat all the food groups and keep to the basics, low saturated fats, grilled and steamed meats, and plenty of fruits and vegetables. There is no such things as bad foods, just eat more of the healthy ones,” said Leech.

For those looking to test their skills of endurance, the Indian Ocean Classic is open to individuals and teams in ski, board, run and swim categories, and costs $150 for individuals and $360 for teams of four. The prize pool for the men’s and women’s open is $15,000 for each category, with other events having an allocation of $20,000 for each category.
