5 Ways to Make Fitness Easy

Updated: Apr 19




After 25 years of working out, there is nothing harder then pushing yourself to the gym each week. To be honest, fitness is 90% mental and 10% physical. When you can train your mind to fight through the pain, the body just follows along and does what you tell it to.


How you motivate your mind boils down to what your fitness goals are. If you want to lose weight, you have to not only motivate yourself to the gym but you also have to motivate yourself to watch what you eat.

Or wait, isn’t that really all of us?


The real key to fitness motivation is eliminating as many of the exercise barriers around you as possible. When those barriers are removed, your chances of exercising success go up, and your chances of getting in shape (losing weight) accelerate dramatically.


Here are 5 big things you need to implement!


1. Home Workout

Dude seriously, you’re not working out at home yet? Are you familiar with COVID or how about pre-COVID when germs were still clinging to everything in your local gym? I hate to be the bearer of bad news but gyms have no way of keeping sick people home and have always been cesspools.


Why don’t you just hang out in the doctor’s office waiting room all day if you’re brave enough to be smothered in fungus from the gym you hang out at. When my wife and I quit going to the gym and started working out at home, we literally stopped getting colds.


Oh, and we haven’t seen a kid running through are home gym yet, nor have we had to wait in line. Go figure?


2. 3. Fitness Plans

Do me a favor, get in your car and drive over to my house. I am not going to give you my address and it may be 10 miles or 1,000 miles away. Either way, do your best to find it and hurry up already.


Does that make sense to you?


Yet that is how many people treat working out. The reality is that you need to exercise with precision and planning. Not only will it get you to your fitness destination quicker, but also with a whole hell of a lot better results.

Like baking a cake, you need a recipe that shows you the how.


3. Exercise Every Day

That’s right, I said every day. In my fitness platform, Fitness Made Easy, I tell my subscribers to at exercise at least three times a week but truly they and I, should aim for seven days a week.


For whatever reason, there seems to be this logic that we can’t exercise every day?


Let me ask you, do you think 200 years ago, those who came before us took a day off to find food or simply stay alive? We have turned into a country of less is more when exercise requires more with less time off.


20 minutes a day will do wonders for your mind, body and spirt.



4. Variety Matters

If you were to poll most people who haven’t exercised for the last six months or longer, boredom would probably be the at top of the list. People need to be dazzled faster then ever before so if you aren’t changing up some of your workout routines, you run the risk of losing your drive.


5. No Friends Allowed

And finally, absolutely zero friends are allowed to workout with you. This includes family members and this tip isn’t something that should be debatable. You can catch up on why Aunt Jane never leaves the house or why the neighbor across the street mow’s his yard with a wig on.


For now, you are here to think about your next exercise. This is your private time and distractions need to be removed. The time you will save in your workout from being by yourself adds up each week, which means you have more time to focus on other things.
