I thought I was healthy. Then, at 44, I had a TIA (a small stroke). I realized then that the sedentary lifestyle I was living wasn’t just unhealthy; it was going to cut my life short if I didn’t make a change. Thankfully, I made my mid-life fitness pivot, and I learned some surprising things along the way. You can read about these in a series of posts I’ve written called My Fitness Journey.
One of the most important lessons that allowed me to change my lifestyle was the need for a fitness community. It wasn’t discipline that won the day; it was the support system I had built of “fitness friends.” These were the people on the fitness journey with me, challenging, and encouraging each other to persevere when the going got tough – or when the going got boring and tedious. Coaches and mentors were also a critical part of that fitness community.
There is an endless amount of diets and workout plans that claim to help us get healthier, but without a fitness community and a holistic approach, these things end up being good ideas we can’t stick with. We lose a few pounds for a short time, and then we slowly slip back into our unhealthy status quo lifestyle.
If you are serious about getting fit, I have a proposition for you: Join us on a six-month journey that will help you make the fundamental lifestyle changes you need to stay healthy for a lifetime.
After launching two PIVOT groups in 2020, I am so encouraged by the results. I have decided to start a third PIVOT group in January of 2021. If you are interested in participating, sign up for one of the PIVOT Introductory Briefing below. I hope you will join us on the journey.
The group is completely FREE, so there are no excuses 🙂 I hope to see you there.
