My name is Patrick Rooney. I’m the Founder of Old School™. I wrote the book GREEK PHYSIQUE™: The Simple, Satisfying Way to Sculpt Your Body—Even If You’re Old, Weak, or Broken Down. This is my life experience, and I know it well.

I’ve had a lot of injuries—and more comebacks than Madonna. I can help you avoid some trouble.

I’m also the creator of Greek Yoga™ for Beginners, a unique, intuitive, efficient, and complete full body workout that can be done anywhere, with no equipment, in 30 minutes or less—much less!

I designed Greek Yoga™ over the years, when I had to do my own physical therapy after lung surgeries that bent my body sideways like a question mark.

I am available for health and fitness coaching in Middle Tennessee, as well as via Zoom, Skype, and phone worldwide. I can help you get lean and athletic, even as the years advance!

This site discusses old school health and fitness primarily, when they were done right, at least for the most part. It also encompasses the simple, rewarding, independent old school lifestyle and culture, which some of us actually remember (I’m closing in on 60!).

On this site you will see my blog posts on old school health, fitness, and lifestyle. You may even notice me posting here and there on old school culture.

You can also check out my new Old School™ Podcast, where I’m beginning to interview people who have done something with their lives, especially people whose knowledge and experience can make your life healthier, more successful, and freer.

Old School is a way of life, and a great one at that! I urge you to check out this lifestyle. You may become hooked!

To your new life in the Old School!
