Our unique programs were created by Dr. Sheri Colberg, a leading expert in lifestyle and diabetes management and the lead author of "Exercise and Type 2 Diabetes," a joint position statement by the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Diabetes Association ( December 2010).
Our motivational, weekly fitness and lifestyle programs with specific plans for beginners (or returning exercisers) or current exercisers will finally allow you to succeed in your lifelong plan for better health--and for less than $1 a week for a full year!
Your weekly program and tips simply arrive in your e-mail inbox once a week for as many weeks as you choose to receive it (13, 26, or 52 weeks).
A recent article in the Wall Street Journal reported what we already knew: an occasional gentle nudge can get people to more regularly exercise and make other lasting lifestyle changes. The study, conducted by Stanford University, leads a growing body of research showing that small amounts of support, ranging from friends who encourage each other by e-mail to occasional meetings with a fitness counselor, can combat a national problem--physical inactivity. Less than half of Americans meet the recommendation for exercising half an hour most days of the week. Nearly all sedentary people at one time or another have started, but then dropped out of, exercise programs. It's time you finally stopped being one of them!
Forget having personal trainers yelling at you for not working hard enough! Our programs use the latest neuroscience addressing how habits are formed and motivation to change behaviors maintained, making the "Fit Brain, Fit Body!" programs ones that you will succeed at doing--on your own or with friends and family--without getting injured or demotivated!
