How to fix your biggest fitness mistake

Can you move? I mean, can you move at all? If the answer is “yes”, then you can get fit…no matter what your age or your present limitations. The biggest mistake generally made in fitness is thinking you have to be fit to start an exercise program. That’s like cleaning your house before a housekeeper comes over. It’s just not necessary (well, maybe for some housekeepers, but not someone I would use).

Fitness is efficient movement and the only way to get there is to start. No matter where you are on your path, to get anywhere, to accomplish anything, you have to move. It doesn’t matter if you’re crawling, hobbling, walking or running. Just start.

That’s what I want to help you with. The first step is…well, the first step. You have to know you can, or even imagine yourself doing “it” — whatever “it” might be. I can’t do it for you, you have to do that, but I *can* provide the means and motivation.

Get up off the chair, sofa, or bed and move. Make that first step, then push yourself a little bit more each day. Before you know it, you’ll be feeling better, sleeping better, and even develop better eating habits. Your energy improves, your mental attitude becomes much better, and you become more productive.

Give it a shot. Just move.
