"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.

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"-- Provided by publisher.
