This quote exemplifies why I believe I was able to reduce my fit age by 25 years. It also underscores the superiority of lifestyle over diets, and it reminds me that the struggle of a healthy lifestyle is daily.
Contrary to what some believe, I don’t jump out of bed everyday eager to pound the pavement. Honestly, I face resistance everyday to skip training sessions, eat impulsively rather than mindfully, and rationalize why I’m simply too busy to take the time. How then, do I manage to beat resistance? First of all, I acknowledge that I never fully defeat it, I just manage to put a dent in it. It’s a daily battle for all of us. No one escapes this struggle. No one.
Over the next several months, in addition to delicious recipes to keep you energized and fuel fitness, I will share the strategies that have helped keep me consistent and allowed me to reduce my fit age. They include:
Periodization of Training
Increasing Utility of Training (aka getting it done is less time)

Resistance is relentless. But if you get into the habit of beating up on it, your healthy habits and lifestyle will prevail and you may even reduce your fit age. I hope I can influence you with postive strategies and insights so you can be the healthiest version of you!
