As a personal trainer and coach

my primary objective is to encourage clients to take a more proactive role toward their own health. Generally when making healthy lifestyle changes, it is best to take small steps and make one or two changes at a time. Remember the wisdom of the old saying:

"Inch-by-inch, life's a cinch; yard-by-yard, life is hard!"

It can be extremely overwhelming to embark upon a completely new exercise and eating regimen, especially if one has been inactive and not eating properly over a long period of time. The good news is that it is never too late to start! Just start!

 
Motivation is what gets you started.
Habit is what keeps you going.
— Jim Ryun
In any moment of decision,
the best thing you can do is the right thing,
the next best thing is the wrong thing,
and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
— Theodore Roosevelt
