Just Give Up

Don't trust yourself. If you want to really see results, then you have to leave your comfort zone, and in my experience, the surest way to do that is to put a pro in charge.

You're deviously smart. You'll figure out the most efficient and painless way to exercise. That's a good thing for all other things besides exercise.

Ever notice that some people have been gym members for a while (months or years), but they look the same? They're comfortable. Bottom-line: if you have been exercising and you are not seeing good results within 3-6 months, something is wrong.

Leave your comfort zone, give up control, but remember to still hold yourself accountable. A pro can guide you along the way, but ultimately you have to walk that path.

Eeeasy there, Tiger.

Your intentions are right-on; you’re starting an exercise program! You go into it with energy and high motivation. Then you fizzle.

Does this happen to you?

My goal, and the foundation agile was built on, is to show you how to overcome this. Every program starts off relatively easy and then builds in intensity each session and each week. The 4th week is a taper week, which means we back off of the intensity so that your body can regenerate and become stronger. Then you're ready to start the process again, except at a higher level.

It takes about 2 cycles (months) for this pattern to take root. The first few weeks, you might resist the routine. It's human nature. Even elite athletes have to concentrate on getting their workouts done by reminding themselves of their ultimate goals.

I make an inner smirk sometimes when I hear people tell me their goals, because I know that, if they stay the course, they will exceed their goals and reach a state of well being that they cannot currently imagine.

How do I Reach You?

Can we Build a Community?

Hi everyone!

I'm having trouble with something and I need your help.

Exercise is tough - less because of grueling workout sessions and more because of the day-in and day-out routine one needs to establish to see results.

I put everything I have into building agile as it exists today. My heart, knowledge and life experiences permeate through every single pixel of what you see.

But how do I reach you? How do I make sure you know that I care as much as I do?

Heated but healthy debate occurred today between us founding agilites on the virtues and pitfalls of creating an online community as a means to reach out to those in need of fitness help.

I want to know in what ways I can improve my service to you. I want to get you fit. I want you to have moments where you feel at peace with yourself.

Help me help you.
