The 7 Habits of Highly Fit People #7 - Learn as much about nutrition and fitness as you are interested in!


  1. Get started!
  2. End Goal – weight or waist size or body image?
  3. Kitchen first, gym second!
  4. Win-Win-Win by balancing nutrition, exercise and rest!
  5. Listen to your body – don’t over fuel it or over work it!
  6. Learn what others are doing and share what works for you – synergize!
  7. Learn as much about nutrition and fitness as you are interested in! 
I encourage you to learn whatever you can about your health and fitness.  Read blogs on the Internet, magazines and watch documentaries on how others have managed to make fitness a habit in their lives.  Well known body-builder - Arnold Schwarzenegger was often quoted –“The mind always fails first, not the body.  The secret is to make your mind work for you, not against you.”

There have been so many discoveries made through science and research into the mechanics of how the body operates and functions.  Consider exploring information around anabolic heart rate, cardio workouts, yoga and many, many more.  Think about what you are learning and develop a system to record it.  Possibly carry a journal that you use to capture some of the best practices you are learning.  

Remember to take a holistic approach to your education.  Know the basics about nutrition, exercise and sleep.  Develop an understanding of your body and when the best times are for you to engage in certain activities.  Some people are morning folks and function best when first waking up, while others use the end of the day to workout the stresses of the day.  There is no right or wrong here – it is just a matter of preferences.

I hope you have found The 7 Habits of Highly Fit People to be an inspiration for you to become fit.  Your feedback is always welcome!
