“We look at all these things that we shouldn’t do, and we punish ourselves. Let’s add the positive and naturally, these negative things will go away.”

In this episode, I talk to Joey Thurman, a health, fitness, and nutrition expert and a trainer for celebrities, A-listers, and millionaires. He has appeared on numerous television shows as a fitness expert and his advice has been featured in a host of well-known publications including People Magazine. He’s a well-known adviser on all things related to fitness. 

I am a big believer that our overall health and well-being plays a big role in our overall energy and presence. The power of your presence comes from the balance of your mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical energy. Part of that physical energy is your health and fitness.

So many of you listening are busy leaders with endless responsibilities both at work and at home. One of the areas that often gets neglected in our busy lives is the focus on our own health, nutrition, and fitness. I invited Joey on the show today to give us a little bit of advice on how to keep fitness, health, and nutrition in the forefront of our focus with a minimum amount of effort.

In this episode:

  • Do a life and day assessment to figure out where your time is going
  • Move away from an all-or-nothing approach to fitness and nutrition
  • Start with one small healthy habit a day and expand when you’re ready
  • The Minimum Method includes awareness, consistency, and self-love
  • Joey’s expert advice to move towards better fitness and health

Noteworthy Quotes from This Episode

“Just because you’re at the gym for an hour, or working out for an hour doesn’t mean you are as efficient, or effective as possible. What’s the minimum effective dose for you, so you can fit training into your life?”

“We’re all on a diet, the definition of a diet is what you eat in a day.”

“We all think all or none, but all or none creates none.”

“You add  intensity when you have consistency. But intensity over consistency is going to kill you every time.”

“If you don’t have love for yourself, you’re giving love to everybody else and you’re the one always taking care of the ones around you. If you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t be here to take care of them.” 

“At 20-something years old, I had much more time. I don’t now. So now I need to pick and choose where I can fit in what I need to get in for myself and for my family. And you have to be aware of that.”
