Presumably you have come to the realization that the quality of your life depends upon:
It's not enough to live long; the quality of your life matters equally! If you are sick, dying or unhealthy, nothing, apart from your health, matters! And without a reasonable degree of fitness to have strength and endurance to do the things you enjoy in comfort, even good health can't be enjoyed! Being fit and looking good and enjoying optimal health will help you maximize you enjoyment of life at every stage.
This website will provide the information, the understanding, and the methods to accomplish these goals. All you need to provide is the motivation, persistence and a few hours per week. If you follow the Slow routine, you can be done in as little as 10 minutes a week. You can not use lack of time as a reason not to exercise anymore.We have a program that will fit anyone's goals.

One thing you really don't need to spend time on is cardio. Believe it or not, it does not help you lose weight and you will attain your fitness goals much more efficiently by lifting properly. I can run for hours even though I don't spend time on the treadmill or other such activities.
The New York Times recently reported on a study that found the young men who participated in the study lost muscle while dieting. The group that was given more protein and lifted extensively during the period of the study lost the weight and enhanced their muscle structure as well.
I also recommend reading the article "Everything You Know About Fitness is a Lie" for a great perspective on the fitness industry and the real path to fitness. The writer makes some great suggestions on what it means to be fit and approaches to getting fit. He highly recommends Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength book. We recommend that one as well. Look at our various weight programs and try a few they will be enough to get you started in building muscle and gaining strength.
If your goal is to shed a few pounds, join the many visitors trying to lose weight. That is the biggest struggle for most people today and it is not easy. We look at many of the current approaches and weigh the experiences of our friends here and try to provide guidance on what diets and supplements have worked best and which are not useful or a waste of time and money. I love to try new ideas and following the latest diet concepts and biohacking as some folks now refer to it. I have recently been following Paleo and Keto styles of eating. I have started doing the BulletProof diet and have been having great success - losing 12 pounds in three weeks. This has never been easy before.
If you want more information on diets visit Facts About Weight Loss. Eating properly is critical to being fit and healthy. You also want to be fit financially so here is one other site I recommend about investing and preparing for retirement.
Here is some of the cool information you can find at Getting in Shape to help you on your journey to fitness and better health.
Looking for some cool music to work out too? My daughter turned me on to a lot of new groups I never thought I would be listening to. But I must admit I am hooked. It must not be just me - LA Fitness has been playing a lot of their videos too. Check out Kpopity for more music info and videos. I really love Mamamoo! Check out their new video for HIP. Great for workouts. Give the music a chance - it took me several listens to "get it." BTS is now said to be the most popular band in the world.
