Any discussion about how to transform your health and get your fitness back on track is actually a discussion of your priorities. If you want to make a change, you need to take a brutally honest look at how you've been living up to this point. Transformation can only happen after you've honestly confronted where you are right now.

As we get older, we tend to be less and less active. I know most of my clients are working at a desk; they're not getting any activity at all. They sit all day and then go home and sit in front of the television. All that sitting is devastating for the body and for longevity.
You have the potential to make dramatic changes in your life and body, but you have to stop taking your health for granted and stop letting the aging process kick your ass. You have to get up. You have to move.
You also have to focus your mind and motivate yourself toward the achievement of a goal. You'll need the combination of exercise, nutrition, and positive mindset to succeed. There's no way you can eat well and exercise your way back to fitness if your mind and heart aren't fully committed.
You have the DNA that guarantees success. Every single body responds positively to the right amount of exercise. Every single body responds positively to good nutrition. Every single mind gets focused when you have purposeful, powerful goals. It's how we work.
Before you begin this program, I want you to take a self-inventory and answer these questions:
- Where am I now?
- Where do I want to be?
- Why am I doing this?
- When am I going to start?
- How do I do it?
Write down these questions and your answers to them. Don't just blow through this part of the process. Many people eagerly start a fitness program without first taking stock of their reasons for doing so. These reasons are essential to understanding and tapping into your long-term motivation.
Knowing where you are and where you'd like to be are the main ingredients of a solid goal. Your goal should be clear and measurable. For example, a good goal is something like: "Within the next 12 weeks, I'd like to lose 30 pounds of fat." On the other hand, a goal like "I want to get in great shape" isn't actually a goal: it's a vague and subjective idea. Steer clear of these kinds of targets.
Once you have a measurable, objectively verifiable goal, get started! However, don't chase this goal like it's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The key to success is to create a game you can win. Give up the pursuit of perfection and instead focus on consistent progress. To do that, you must stop measuring yourself by what you haven't accomplished, and start paying attention to what you have accomplished.
When you do this, progress becomes clear, tangible, and objective. Progress is a step that takes you further from your starting point and closer to your goal. As you continue to exercise one day at a time, you'll discover that you don't have to wait 12 weeks to start feeling good about yourself. You can start feeling good on day one!
As you're creating your goal(s), don't forget to think about why you want to change. The success of your transformation will come down to developing a solid list of reasons you are making the decision to change. I've spent enough years in the business to know that the better the reason, the better the results.
Finally, choose when and how you're going to achieve your goals. If you follow the Back to Fit program, you'll learn how to do effective, efficient workouts and stick to a healthy meal plan for life. I'll help you learn habits that become your lifestyle. The competition in this program is with yourself. Get better than you used to be. Get healthier. You're going to feel brighter; you're going to feel more positive. You're going to get back to fit.
