The year is almost over and what better time than now to finish the year on a high note. We will begin with our first micro-commitment. This one is easy and it’s just answering one question (see below).
This post is going to be a little different. I want to hear from you by telling me what your biggest challenge is getting back in shape after your setback. This site has been created for you and getting feedback is the best way to help you and it helps me create content that’s relevant. So, it’s a win/win for both of us.
What is your number one challenge to start working out? The following may be something you’re going through now:
Lack of time
Lack of motivation
Fear. Be specific.
Recovering from surgery or illness.
Lack of money
Loss of employment
Please leave your comments below and I will reply here or via e-mail if you prefer. I’m looking forward to helping you take the first step in reaching your goals.
You’re already making more progress with the question above and working on your goals in this short amount of time versus all that time you’ve been contemplating that you need to start exercising. You will see once you begin working out, you will start to think clearer and feel better.
Talk to you soon!

I found it very humbling to be forced to reduce the amount of weight to a fraction of what I once lifted routinely!
You’re being active and have made great progress. Although you may not be able to lift the same amount as before, think where you would be now if you weren’t exercising. Keep up the good work!
Lack of time and motivation. Must get pass this though.
Motivation can be tricky at times. Look inside and see if there is anything you always wanted to master or that sparks your interest. Maybe it’s deadlifting 400 lbs, lowering your body fat percentage, getting your black belt, or something else. Whatever that hunger is, will help you take the first step, and get you through the days you don’t want to train.
Mainly my biggest challenge is… not being consistent. Once I start, then I get distracted, then I have to start all over again and feel the same pain on top of pain from injury. Goes in cycles. But I will get there.
I suggest starting with something where your pain is minimal. That will help with your focus. Maybe it’s walking a mile. Swimming is a great exercise and water has a therapeutic effect on muscles and joints.
