Congratulations for taking the first step toward improving your life!

I consider health to be one of the core topics of study in every person’s life.  When health suffers, every aspect of your life suffers- relationships, spirituality, academics, and work.

Often people think of health and exercise as a limiting lifestyle that relies on self-control and motivation. I don’t believe in self-control or motivation as a source for improvement.  Throughout this course, you will find your desires changing through your education and your desires for a healthy lifestyle will rise above your desires for damaging lifestyles.

By the end of this course, I anticipate that you will find a new joy in life as your relationships, spirituality, academics, work and mental well-being improve as a natural consequence to improving your health and fitness.
