"It's only 20 minutes. " That was the main point I remembered from a conversation I had with a friend about an exercise DVD she started doing recently. Only 20 minutes? I can do that, I thought. Most of the exercise videos I have are at least an hour long. In a busy working mom's schedule, it's hard to carve out an hour a day for a workout. This school year, I wasn't very faithful with workouts. September and October were filled with morning walks or time spent on the treadmill, but once November rolled around, it was just too hard to part with my pillow in the morning.

In my 15 years in the fitness industry, my views of what the path to total fitness lifestyle development has evolved several times. New information, trial and error and changes in the industry best practices have all contributed to these shifts in thought. I was a lot more militant in my younger days than I am now. Becoming a husband, a father, and a business owner have drastically changed the way I look at fitness, and the way I coach people through it. Every aspect of your life should be ever-evolving and changing to move forward.
