Do you struggle to get motivated to exercise? Does it seem that no matter what approach you take, you end up quitting long before you reach your goals?

Although it may seem like the problem you are experiencing has to do with being “motivated,” if you look a bit deeper into yourself, you’ll likely find that it’s not more or better motivation you need but rather you need to shift your perceptions about what exercise actually is and does for you.

The reality is, everyone knows that exercise is good for them, however, most don’t realize it’s a matter of life and death.

You must consciously start to take an active role in preventing killer diseases and increasing longevity and proper exercise is key. This approach is probably the single most effective way to keep your health and is the ultimate tonic for rejuvenating and revitalizing your whole body and your life.

Strength Training is Key

If you truly want to reclaim your strength and your youth, exercise programs that contain strength training exercise work the magic.

By combining big multi-joint exercises and cardio interval training, strength and fitness can be improved in just a few weeks and the best thing of all is most modern strength training programs can be performed in well under an hour.

Your new strength and fitness makes you a better spouse, parent, friend and co-worker. You’ll get to enjoy an increased life-span and improved quality of life which enables you to keep up with your children and your grandchildren.

Your day will be packed with so much more living as you pursue new hobbies, take up new sporting activities, travel the world and start new careers. 

No one else will take the kind of interest or the care for you that you need to in order to stay strong and fit throughout your life and protect your future. You must be proactive. Give exercise the accolades and time it deserves. Make it the only prescription you ever need to get filled!

By starting now and taking an active role in your life you can increase your longevity and prevent killer diseases. Truly, your future is in your own hands.

It’s exciting to live at a time when studies are revealing how our genes are influenced by their environment; and your environment is you. The way you live in terms of your exercise, eating, sleeping, and stress management – and all other habits change the environment of your genes and that in turn changes what they do.

Bottom line is this: every minute of every day, we are making life or death decisions in terms of what we choose to eat and how we choose to use our bodies and those decisions filter all the way through to our DNA.

You can reshuffle your genetic deck in your favor with healthy behaviors that reduce the likelihood of a bad health outcome by 80 percent. No drug, no medical intervention, no doctor or supplement can ever come close to delivering results like that. Only you can build a strong fit, lean healthy body with optimal disease protection and that begins with healthy perceptions about what exercise actually is and does.

By adopting healthy lifestyle habits, you give your DNA a makeover, a second chance to move your life away from the risk of disease rather than attracting it.

Don’t wait for disease to set in, start now to improve your health everyday by taking time out to exercise and eat better.

Think of it as a gift not only to yourself, but to your loved ones that want you around as long as possible.

Remember, it’s far easier to keep the good health you already have than to try and recover it after it’s lost.

The responsibility for your health and fitness falls directly on you. However, you are also the one that reaps the rewards and benefits from your accountability.

If you truly want to take command of your life and avoid disease somewhere down the road – your muscles need to be in tip-top condition…strong and toned at all times – starting now.

“Reclaim Your Longevity” can help you do just that…
