Collected Fitness Wisdom #44

I have a very successful client who once made a great point to me. He said “people are going to spend money on health”. He went on to say that it could be proactive (ex. a trainer) or reactive (ex. hospitals and nursing homes). In either case the money will be spent. Proactive spending not only will prolong life, it will increase it’s quality.

Why die of preventable diseases with hundreds of thousands of dollars in the bank ? If you are a baby boomer go out and hire a trainer. It’s not that I want your money, most of my readers don’t live north of Boston. I just want people to be able to take advantage of natures greatest medicine, exercise.

You need to get fit to run, not run to get fit. If more people followed this simple piece of advice, I’d be less inclined to want to stab myself in the face with a machete.

If you want to completely reshape your body and keep it that way, it's imperative that you make resistance training an essential part of your fat loss program. While cardio will definitely help (and has numerous other health benefits), weight training is the real key to fat loss.

If someone tells you that lifting slow makes you fast or that jolting your abs with an electric shock every few seconds will carve out a six-pack, try to breathe through your eyes. It'll bring clarity.
