Research suggests that fewer and fewer people are making resolutions as part of the New Years holiday to modify their daily routines and “diet” to become healthier. Thank God! This is music to my ears. As a Personal Trainer and someone who has spent too many New Year’s Eve evenings preparing to get back on the so-called health wagon, I feel its high time we stop and think about what’s really important to us. Is it stepping on a scale to see an ideal weight, or is it being able to keep up with our nieces and nephews when they challenge us to a footrace (gosh darn them!)? Is it fitting into the ideal size jeans, or is it the wonderful feeling of being “comfortable in your own skin?” Is it having a perfect six-pack, or is it really being able to easily lift a child, grandchild, or something as simple as a heavy bag of groceries? Fitness and health are about so much more than a diet that constricts our bodies and minds to fit a mold. I’m starting this blog because it’s time to GET REAL! ” Your Daily Push – Getting Real with Killer K von B” will feature tips on how to be TRULY healthy so we can stop the madness and TRULY live our lives to the fullest. And if you learn a few things that result in lower weight, muscles that pop or clothing sizes that drop – even better. BUT NO EXCUSES in 2014! You’re never too old, too young, too broke, too busy, too weak, too macho, too girly, too… you get the idea. 2014 is time to get FIT and spend your precious time on Earth doing everything you can to make the most of your life and positively impact the lives of others.
