In episode 88, Jill and Chris talk with Chad Austin, the owner of Priority Fitness in Overland Park, KS, and author of the book series, “Make Fitness A Priority.”
He has been a leader in the fitness industry since 2003. Chad is a regular fitness and wellness guest expert for local and national media. He was the host of the talk radio show, “Be Fit…For Life”, and has been featured on over 20 podcasts. Chad helps his clients stop constantly starting over and instead find long-term fitness success. His goal is to help you find a plan that you can use immediately.
During this podcast we discuss:
- How to win the fight against your excuses
- How to change your mindset “you are too busy” to exercise
- If you’re new to working out, how to get started
- How to beat your excuses
- How to make fitness a priority, even when life changes
- Although we all know we need to make fitness a priority, how to actually do it
- Food choices and how he suggests that his clients eat
He says that it’s a myth that age is something that stops us. The more you move the longer you can keep yourself young. It’s even more important as you age to make fitness a priority.
Change is inevitable. Failure is inevitable. So what? Failure doesn’t have to define us. It’s what you do next. The yo-yo pattern happens because we are attracted to instant gratification. We want to try to get as fit as fast as possible, which leads to temporary success. We have to figure out what fits best in our life. What are you going to do to get back on track?
In today’s podcast he offers strategies for overcoming excuses as well as a link to a free copy of his book: Make Fitness A Priority: 30 Tips to Elevate Your Life Through Fitness Kindle Edition
