Let's Have a Regular Chat About Fitness

Are you as fit as you'd like to be? If you're anything like me, the answer is no.

Let's be realistic. Most of us are never going to have washboard abs or 18-inch biceps. We're not going to run five-minute miles or swim the English Channel. 

And that's OK.

But you wouldn't know it by reading Men's Health or Muscle and Fitness. You wouldn't know it by scanning all the "fitspo" posts on social media. Heck, just go to the gym at the wrong time and it can be demoralizing.

The thing is, most of us have careers and families and homes and responsibilities. And what we really need is to be able to talk about diet and exercise in a way that makes sense in our lives.

So let's have that conversation. 

It is possible to get to a healthy BMI. It's possible to put some muscles on your frame. In my case, it's possible to run 26.2 miles. We are capable of plenty!

I think I have a lot to share. I've long said that if I can do this, anyone can -- and I really believe that. But I also have a lot to learn, and I hope that you won't just read this, but add your own thoughts, opinions and wisdom to the discussion. And I hope that we can inspire each other to keep working to look better and feel better.
