Thanks for visiting!
My name is Chris and my wife, Megan, and I are pushing 40, looking 30 and feeling 20. However, we haven’t always been so enthusiastic about fitness. It wasn’t long ago that I stopped eating, each night before retiring to bed, one large bowl of ice cream, topped with several crumpled cookies smothered in chocolate syrup; a trend that was 12 years in the making. Although I would not consider myself obese, I was surely out of shape and out of touch with the real fitness person I knew I could be. That is why I created this website…to help you find the inner “fit person” that you are.
In life, there are three certainties: death, taxes and diet fads. Like you, I have tried low-carb diets, high-protein diets, low-fat diets, low-calorie diets, high water-based diets; I have tried sit-ups, running, jump-rope and yoga; I have tried fitness videos; fitness trainers and have even purchased thousands of dollars of fitness equipment. And what I found that worked for me and what I guarantee will work for you is to find the right combination of diet and exercise that you guessed it…works for YOU!
So I have designed this web site as a resource for customizing the right diet and exercise program that meets your needs. FitnessMBA.com will give you access to hundreds of fitness programs, diet and nutrition ideas, weight loss tips, body calculators, articles on fitness and much more.
I hope you find a diet that works for you; one that is nutritionally balanced and doesn’t restrict you from any food groups; we need all of them to keep healthy. Your diet must be useful to you in the long run. It must emphasize a proper, healthy eating lifestyle. A good diet must be sustainable indefinitely to have a useful and permanent weight-loss effect.
I hope you find an exercise program that works for you. The key is to find something that you enjoy. Exercise should be fun and it should be social. I encourage people to think in terms of “activities” rather than “exercise.” Start by turning simple daily activities into something more beneficial. Setting achievable and realistic goals and increasing activity in small increments, people are more likely to stay with an exercise program.
I sincerely hope you find this site of value and keep it bookmarked as a reference for you when grab a hold of life and begin your journey of staying fit for life.
