It’s surprising, the amount of people who believe that food choices alone can increase their health and fitness. Much of what is portrayed to be healthy by mainstream media will actually cause a vast range of health problems and leave you feeling tired and lethargic. If you want to get fit and stay healthy, you need more than good food and lifestyle choices – you need MOTIVATION. Whether you have health issues or challenges which are detracting from your quality of life or you just want to improve your physique or physical appearance, you’ve got to take into consideration your values, your health aspirations and really look at the bigger picture.

To gain lasting motivation so you can consistently identify and chose healthy foods and to feel motivated to exercise even when you’re feeling tired or depressed, you need to get clear on your motivating factors as well as your reasons for change. You also need to understand the WHY, WHAT, WHERE and HOW of what you want to achieve.

Without a complete strategy you are like a ship without a rudder, constantly going in circles but never achieving your health or fitness goals. Having a reliable health and fitness coach on the other hand, keeps you in line because you are answerable to someone else and are less likely to make excuses. To gain control over your self destructing habits (including emotional eating) requires a step by step health and fitness coaching plan which encourages health awareness. This understanding of how to live your life without self sabotaging your efforts can help you to achieve your health and fitness goals faster.
