Do you really want to be fit?

Do you ever give up what you want MOST for what you want NOW? Think about it… If what you want most is to lose the weight—once and for all—but then you give in and order pizza for dinner, you’ve just given up what you want MOST (a healthier, leaner body) for what you wanted NOW (convenient and comforting food).

Be A Fitness Role Model

Who’s watching you? Getting fit and healthy is an individual journey. It takes focusing on yourself, your choices, your progress, and ultimately your results.

Eat Healthy and Exercise: Choose Hard Now or Hard Later

One Thing You’re Missing for Weight Loss Success

There is one reason why most people haven’t yet reached their goals, and it’s a simple one. It’s something that I’ve sometimes struggled with in the past, and it just may be the one thing that’s holding you back from your big breakthrough. That one thing is consistency. Think about it. The difference that separates a fitness star from a couch potato is the consistency with which the former applies to their diet and exercise routine....

Have a goal? Here’s how to meet it.

Do you have a specific fitness goal that you are hoping to achieve? This goal could be a number on the scale, or a clothing size. Or maybe you are hoping to wear a certain cut or style of clothes like strappy tank tops, shorts, or a bathing suit. While having this goal is great, it will NOT guarantee success. You knew that, though, because this isn’t the first time that you’ve had a fitness goal. A goal that you didn’t meet. In fact,...

The Sum of Your Lifestyle Choices

Today is a big deal… You woke up this morning and began making choices. You chose whether or not to exercise, to eat a healthy breakfast, or to do something productive.
