10 Steps to Shape Up Your Health and Body

If you have been inactive for a long time, your health could be worsening. Take steps to eat better, burn fat, lose weight and improve your health. This will give you the best chance to live a healthy, quality life. You deserve it......you will feel better and look better.


If you are overweight or have too much body fat (a skinny person can have too much body fat), your body is not as healthy as it could be. Start making changes today!

Here are 10 steps you can take TODAY to start shaping up your health and body:

1. Identify your fitness goals and determine why your fat loss and weight loss efforts have failed or succeeded in the past. You also have to get your motivation right for your exercise program to work for you. This step takes you being "very honest" with yourself! Sometimes it is a painful process.

2. It is crucial that you improve your body composition (less body fat % vs. more lean mass %). Where are you fat? Excess abdominal fat has been shown to be a precursor to diseases such as cancer.

3. You need to know your body measurements (chest, arms, neck, hips, waist, etc.). Consistently strength training your total body will help you burn fat and shrink your body.

4. What's your health history? You might need a doctor's clearance before you can begin an exercise program.

5. What are your eating habits? Part of your fitness assessment will look at what you are eating, how you are eating and changes that you need to make.

6. What is your basal metabolic rate? Don't know? This rate helps you set the daily calories you will need to reach your fat loss goals.

7. Have you had low back pain for some time? If so, you probably have postural problems that need to be corrected. Schedule an appointment with your trainer.

8. Had any muscle spasms or "knotted muscles" lately? Then, you need to improve your flexibility. A fitness assessment will tell you where your muscles are tight, lengthened or weak.

9. When's the last time you checked your resting pulse rate? Your resting pulse rate will tell you how hard your heart is working in a resting state. For instance, my resting pulse rate was 58 beats per minute the last time I checked it. That's pretty low. When I was at peak condition as a college athlete, my resting pulse rate was 54-56 beats per minute.

10. You might have to start out slowly getting in shape. Try walking 30 minutes a day for a week. You will need to progress to regular strength and cardio training to transform your body to lean and toned.

You have to start taking steps to improve your health and body.

  1. This is a great list! Especially here in Miami a lot of my female clients are so called "skinny fat". Most of the time they don't even realize that they are not as healthy as they think they are. In my opinion strength training is an absolute MUST to live a healthy life!

    Thanks for this post!

  2. Hey Jen...good to hear from you again! Some people never do strength training which is a huge mistake. I call them cardio kings and queens....the muscle tone is just not there and their bones don't get the benefit from strength training...take care!
