I’ve been there. But if these are your three big reasons for not working out (even though you WANT to), then today’s episode is for you.

I’m sharing three very simple shifts that will get you in gear so that working out with consistency is actually EASY.

Not only that, but I’m going to help you uncover the real reason you’re not working out so you can get past it once and for all.

    Thank you for this pod cast. I really needed that. I have a very difficult life with 5 kids, two with rare diseases and basically a single parent.

      Jordi – I can imagine it’s especially difficult to make time for the practices that keep you energized … I hope these strategies help you find a solid baseline!
