You want to be in shape but you don’t think you can do it? Well you’re not alone. Lots of people want things. It’s the getting them that can be hard. But with fitness there are simple three rules.

1. Get moving. You can’t be fit if you sit around every day. You need to exercise or do something at least four days a week for at least 30 minutes each day.

And your heart rate HAS to get up! Going for a stroll won’t cut it. Get moving and get sweating.

2. Eat better. Yeah that sounds like a no brainer but you’d be amazed how many clients workout so they can eat whatever they want. The bottom line for food is this; you have to sacrifice junk if you want to be in shape. Sounds tough but in every decision you make there is something you are choosing not to do.

If you are in a relationship then it’s likely you sacrificed dating other people to be in it. Food is the same. If you want to be fit, you’ve got to break up with the junk.

3. Sleep at least seven hours a night, eight is better. Yeah you might miss your shows but you can PVR or TiVo those. Get to bed and sleep. You can’t get in shape if you’re tired all the time. It’s too much stress on your body and when you’re stressed you put on fat.

Those are the simple and honest three rules you have to follow to be fit and feel better. They really aren’t that hard, and once you realize you can do them, there will be no looking back!
