Despite all your good intentions, though, somehow it never quite goes according to plan. But you can break that cycle. In Fit at Last, bestselling business author Ken Blanchard and fitness authority Tim Kearin show how Ken, at age seventy-three, finally was able to make lasting improvements in his health and fitness, including dropping over thirty pounds in a year. In each chapter, Ken shares the very personal story of his ups and downsa€”involving, among other things, a puppy, a Hawaiian tour bus full of widows, and a fifty-year college reuniona€”while Tim offers expert advice and wisdom gained from over forty years in the fitness industry. Following through on your efforts to get fit requires leadershipa€”personal leadership. Early on, Ken realized the same concepts hea€™d been using for years to help people lead organizations also could help him stick to his program. Here, youa€™ll learn how Ken and Tim applied the Situational Leadership II approach to set SMART goals, diagnose Kena€™s progress in each of the six core areas of fitness, and match them with the leadership styles necessary to get Ken to the next level in each area. Certainly there is a wealth of excellent fitness advice herea€”but ultimately, this is a book about commitment. People dona€™t fail because they dona€™t know what to doa€”they fail because they just dona€™t do it. Using the tools in this book, youa€™ll be able to move from simply being interested in fitness to making a lasting commitmenta€”one that will add a spring to your step, a smile to your face, and years to your life.Ididna#39;thave a big weight loss month, but I did shed a few morepounds.
