3 Best Tips to Stay Fit, From a Pro



I have been in the fitness and wellness industry for a long, long time.

When I first started training, I had just come from being paralyzed for a year, and I would see many people at the gym with disabilities, working out and pushing themselves, so I had a very
“NO EXCUSES” mind-set.

I figured if someone in a wheel chair could get to the gym, then no job, no amount of kids and no other circumstances could stop someone from training.

Well… I was wrong.

What a few years and experience have taught me is that… there ARE excuses.
Some of them are valid and some of them just are… well… excuses.

I have always lived in a metropolitan area where there are gyms abundantly.

You can find a Gold’s Gym, 24hr Fitness, LA Fitness, etc. but…..

Here I am, now, 20 miles from the closest Starbucks and I GET IT!

I get that not everyone can make it to the gym!

I also get that the gym is not meant for everyone.

I want to give you 3 tips that will help you to be able to stick with an exercise program.


–there is no point in running if you won’t run!

I was able to lose 10 lbs by going for walks, working in the yard, going for a bike ride.

You can do push-ups, sit ups, bike, go for hikes/walking, walking luges on your way back from somewhere. JUST DO SOMETHING YOU WILL DO!

If you don’t use it…. You will lose it!

*You need to train to LIVE*

So many are focused on the end result.

Results come over time with consistency. If you just track your activity, you will be more inspired to keep going. Here are a few ways to track activity:

– Mark your calendar with stickers

– Download an app to track your progress

– Do something to reward yourself, like a new


Be patient, there is no end…this is your life.

You need to stay fit for the rest of your life.

Do something you can do for a long time.
