[dropcap]B[/dropcap]eing “too busy” to get in shape is just an excuse you’ve become accustomed to. Whether you like it or not, it’s still possible for you to get in the best shape of your life. Being stuck in the 9 to 5, or grinding in the 14 hour day still leaves you time.
All you need is a no brainer exercise plan, focused nutrition habits and a knowledgeable wellness coach to guide you through the process.
Gone are the days of thinking about the past.
“Man, remember when I could bench 300lbs with my eyes closed.”
“I use to be able to do a half somersault, knee tuck, toe grab in the air.”
Well my friend, high school is over and you’re now living a life that is more challenging both mentally and physically. Your mind and body takes a beating everyday whether you realize it or not.
Just think back. How did most people look in high school? They appeared in shape and could eat anything they wanted. Football players chiseled and cheerleaders were the talk of the party.
And guess what?
Reality hit and they’re all fat with no sign of muscle.
I recently talked with an old friend and he said grabbing his belly, “I really want to do something about this.”
I feel for him. He has a loving family, a great business but he feels like crap most days.
But he shouldn't feel that way.
Busy entrepreneurs and business professionals just like him are able to live hectic lives and still manage their health and fitness.
I know this because I’m just that guy.
I’ve started a family, just bought a new house, run a multinational organization, started a new venture, travel around the world and have a shit ton of other things pulling for my attention.
Yet with all that said, I still take care of my mind, body and soul. Health and fitness is a huge priority.
And if your up for feeling just like I do, I can help you too.
You’re thinking about it all wrong
You’re not in high school anymore. Downing the protein shakes and being in the gym for hours isn’t an option.
Get it out of your head and take it off your vocabulary list. You are no longer in high school.
Frankly, what you did back then was pretty stupid anyway. You were young and could get away with it.
You also had the time to sit in the gym and worry about nothing else.
Just maybe if we had the proper fitness and wellness coach we could have gotten our shit together, but we didn’t. Men and women alike wasted time doing crap that didn’t matter and wasn’t sustainable.
Sadly enough, those nagging pains you may feel today are the product of your silly ambitions back then. Aching knees and elbows anyone?
You don’t have to train like you did in high school to get in shape and you don’t want to.
I have something for you that works way better and is manageable in your hectic life. It will take you less time and you can fit it in whenever.
First: Workout smarter, in less time
Forget the two a days or the 6 days a week and rest on Sunday approach. The popular magazines are your worst nightmare, drop these as your go to resource.
Each week all you need to do is this:
- 2 x 30 minute walks outdoors. Do it with your family, dog, or whoever.
- 3 x 20 − 30 minute resistance exercise workouts - bodyweight and / or compound full-body lifts.
- 1 x 15 minute interval exercise session - preferably outdoors and sprints if you’ve worked up to them.
So, instead of spending 8 hours a week in the gym - not including travel time - you could be doing less than 3 hours a week. And the CRAZY part is it can all be done from the comfort of your own home.
You can do it on your own time, when you feel up for it. Your life is demanding and having the flexibility to fit it in your schedule is key. No commitments holding you back.
It’s not too good to be true. It’s reality and if you give it a try you’ll see what it can do for you. This is what gave me the motivation to offer wellness coaching for busy people who feel like crap and think theirs no way out.
Even the busiest of person can get in shape.
Next: Don’t follow mainstream nutrition advice
Yes, exercise is a critical ingredient to you're getting fit recipe but without nutrition it is pointless. For busy, highly stressed people wanting to lose weight, nutrition is critical to their success. Easing into new nutrition habits is key, so you don’t overwhelm yourself.
Again, forget what you did back in the day or what you hear on the news. Even worse the crap you hear on the commercials. Low fat, 100 calorie pack extravaganza anyone? Maybe a grilled chicken breast, broccoli stir fry and call it a night recipe?
These aren’t for you. You’ve changed and so has your nutrient needs.
You can’t possibly expect your kids and spouse to eat this way. It’s boring dull and will only do harm. They’re not the next bodybuilding sensation.
During the first 2 weeks in my wellness coaching program I will recommend small changes for their specific needs. We call these small wins. For my friend mentioned in the earlier story he started his first week taking fish oil, Vitamin D and an organic multivitamin (not the highly funded, highly advertised brands).
After the first week we began introducing new nutrition strategies that were specific to his needs. Some were for how and what he was eating, while others were for how much and when he was eating. Slow and methodical wins the race.
Everyone has unique challenges and we focus everything around that.
And then: Think less, do more
For busy professionals who have a family and stressed to the max, thinking less and doing more is ideal.
Maybe if you were back in high school you could read all the fitness literature, do hours of research, and come up with some ridiculous nutrition and exercise programs. But you don’t have that time and I would bet no matter how much you research a wellness coach could still do better.
But since you’re not in the “way back when” period your focus is on being a loving spouse and parent, busting your ass at work, and making sure that food is on the table and the bills paid.
Am I right? And after that how much time do you really have anyway?
When if comes to your health, finding someone who can help you with your wellness goals is so valuable. All you have to do is focus on doing. Nothing else, just do.

Don’t get discouraged.
Life may seem chaotic, time may be flying by and your body may not look or feel like it use to. But don’t give up. [TWEET THIS]
No matter how busy you are or where life has taken you, you can still get in shape and feel great. By focusing on a no brainer exercise plan, focused nutrition habits and a knowledgeable wellness coach, you too can get there.
Every day, busy business professionals just like you choose my coaching program to help prioritize their own health and fitness. It’s possible as crazy as it may seem.
But regardless if you choose me as your wellness coach or not, please do something.
Life flies by and 10 extra pounds can easily lead to 50 extra pounds. High blood pressure can lead to a heart attack. And poor nutrition can lead to modern day problems like autoimmune disease followed by arthritis, thyroid dysfunction, colitis and a hundred other problems.
So while you sit there reading this, do you have the time NOT to get in shape? Will that lead you to your life goals? Tough questions worth answering.
