about

You could be in better shape. No offense?who couldn?t be? And if you?re like the rest of us, you?ve been making resolutions and promises for years. Despite all your good intentions, though, somehow it never goes according to plan. But you can break that cycle.In Fit at Last, bestselling business author Ken Blanchard and fitness expert Tim Kearin tell how Ken was finally able, at age seventy-three, to make lasting improvements in his health, including dropping over thirty pounds in a year. In each chapter, Ken shares the very personal story of his ups and downs?a story that involves, among other things, a puppy, a Hawaiian tour bus full of widows, and a fifty-year college reunion?while Tim gives professional health advice and training wisdom.Of course, Ken Blanchard has been helping organizations get healthy for years, and early on he realized he could adapt those same techniques in his own efforts. He shows how readers can use his Situational Leadership approach to determine their developmental level in each of the fitness areas Tim describes and decide what type of leadership they need to move to the next level.Certainly there is a wealth of excellent health advice here, but ultimately, this is not a book about fitness; it?s a book about commitment. People don?t fail because they don?t know what to do?they fail because they just don?t do it. Using the tools in this book, you?ll be able, like Ken, to move from simply being interested in fitness to making a lasting commitment?one that will add a spring to your step, a smile to your face, and years to your life. ?I?ve been in the fitness industry for more than thirty years, so I know how important it is to keep your body healthy and fit at every age. My hope is that everyone everywhere will realize the transforming effects of a lifelong commitment to health and fitness. I?m so glad Ken has done it?and you can do it, too! Read Fit at Last!??Denise Austin, fitness guru and author of twelve books, including Side Effect: Skinny
