Just Motivate Me - for Fitness

Train your mind to train your body

by Russell Cotter

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview

Just Motivate Me for Fitness is the book for people who struggle with their inner motivations to become fit. Many fitness books exist will advise you on exercises and measurements. Many motivation books will stress the importance of routine, focus and goals. The challenge with using many of the books that are available are that they generalize their insights and suggestions in ways that make it seem that every reader is the same.

Same age, same demographics, same life experiences and circumstances and same challenges. This is just not realistic.

Just Motivate Me for fitness makes two specific assertions that form the backbone of the book:

1. Motivation is deeply personal and one motivational method or fitness program most definitely does not fit all; and

2. For many ordinary people, it is so much more important to train the mind so that the body can be properly trained.

Description

Just Motivate Me for Fitness is the book for people who struggle with their inner motivations to become fit. Many fitness books exist will advise you on exercises, workouts and measurements. Many motivation books will stress the importance of routine, focus and goals. The challenge with many current viewpoints is that they make it seem like everyone is the same. Same age, same demographics, same life experiences and circumstances and same challenges. This is just not realistic.

Just Motivate Me for fitness makes two specific assertions that form the backbone of the book: 1. Motivation is deeply personal and one motivational method or fitness program most definitely does not fit all; and 2. For many ordinary people, it is so much more important to train the mind so that the body can be properly trained.

While becoming a more deliberate student of myself, throughout my life, I began writing this book around the theme of developing a fit body through firstly focusing on the mind, in ways that did more than the conventional texts on exercise, diet and pure grit. I hope you enjoy this book that shares lessons and insights from my journey. It may not apply to some people, but for some it will be the "book they always wanted".

I intend for this book to be for ordinary people who are not fitness superstars, super athletes, special forces combat experts or bodybuilders. My book is meant for people who have varying degrees of disposable income, time and life responsibilities, people who may have had scarce parental attention growing up, people who try very hard and constantly battle disappointment in themselves and just think, What's the point? This book is not designed to give you hope. My wish is that this book gives you some of my personal insights along with some tools so that you create hope within yourself and from that, you and you alone learn how to train your mind to train your body.

For me, this is the book I wish I could have given to my eighteen-year-old self, and although I have a few regrets, I think I did pretty well in my journey of developing a healthy and fit body, even through and in spite of the setbacks I experienced along the way.

The content in this book is mostly anecdotal and based on what I have learned, through the school of hard knocks. So, if you need the books with all the buckets of research and graphs and quotations from various academic studies, then maybe you need to broaden your search. I wrote this book from the point of view of an everyday person who wants to help everyday people. People with hopes, frustrations, anxieties and complex circumstances that make motivation for exercise difficult to muster.
