I can remember my first visit to a health club like it was yesterday. It was actually thirty years ago, when I was five years old. Even though it was a long time ago, that visit triggered something in me that is still with me today. That something was my desire to lead a fitness lifestyle.

I can go on and on here about allrepparttar health related benefits of working out and eating right. Butrepparttar 145090 truth is you already heard or read about all these good things. So, I won’t bore you with what you already know.

What I do want to share with you arerepparttar 145091 benefits that you won’t see on a scale, inrepparttar 145092 mirror or inrepparttar 145093 results of your next medical exam. What I’m talking about isrepparttar 145094 priceless influence you will have on others who are close to you such as your children, parents, friends, co-workers and employees (if you are a business owner).

By choosing to live a fitness lifestyle, and actively expose me to it, my father was imparting wisdom on me that would beneficially influence his descendants for generations to come. Pretty smart guy, wouldn’t you say?

There were other factors that contributed to my desire to lead an active & healthy lifestyle. As a kid, I was able to seerepparttar 145095 difference between how my father looked and how other people in his age range, who did not take care of themselves, looked. The difference was staggering.

And, when it came to physical abilities. Forget about it! He could do things by himself that would normally require three or four out of shape & unhealthy people to get done.

I knew exactly what kind of shape I wanted to be in when I grew up.
