Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
When it comes to health and fitness, there's a big difference between commitment and interest. When interested exercisers who like to run wake up and find it is raining outside, they lie back down and say to themselves, “I think I’ll exercise tomorrow.” Committed exercisers get out of bed and say to themselves, “I think I’ll exercise inside today.” They keep their commitment to their commitment.
In this book, bestselling author Ken Blanchard, teams up with successful health and fitness coach Tim Kearin to inspire others to move from an interest in fitness to a commitment to fitness. Ken shares the very personal story of his own ups and downs as he struggled to commit to a fitness program, while Tim gives professional health advice and training wisdom. They emphasize that you can’t do it alone—if you can’t hire a trainer they explain how you can create an informal team to keep yourself on track. And Ken shows that you can apply the same techniques he has used to strengthen leadership in organizations to lead yourself to establishing new positive habits and lasting, improved health.
“I’ve been in the fitness industry for more than thirty years, so I know how important it is to keep your body healthy and fit at every age. My hope is that everyone everywhere will realize the transforming effects of a lifelong commitment to health and fitness. I’m so glad Ken has done it—and you can do it, too! Read Fit at Last!”
—Denise Austin, fitness expert and author of twelve books, including Side Effect: Skinny
“I’ve known Ken Blanchard as a friend and mentor for over thirty years. I’m thrilled that he has become fit at last so we’ll all have him around for many years to come. Read the book, make the commitment, and achieve similar results for yourself.”
—John Calipari, head basketball coach, University of Kentucky
“To accomplish important goals in your life, having a good coach can really help. Read Fit at Last and learn how powerful a good support team can be. Thanks, Tim, for sharing how you’ve helped Ken on his health and fitness journey.”
—Don Shula, NFL coaching legend
“Ken Blanchard has long helped businesspeople keep their companies at peak performance. Teaming up with trainer Tim Kearin for Fit at Last is perhaps his greatest contribution to the health of corporate America—demonstrating that physical well-being is an essential element of success on every front.”
—Harvey Mackay, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Swim with the Sharks without Being Eaten Alive
“In the Army, teamwork and discipline are key to building successful teams and leaders. In Fit at Last, Ken Blanchard and Tim Kearin team up to deliver a disciplined, holistic formula laced with personal challenges and successes that many of us have experienced in our quest to maintain physical fitness. This book will inspire you to not only begin but persevere toward the sheer joy of being fit—at last.”
