I believe we need a heightened sense of urgency around our health. If there is anything we have learned in the last year, it is how important our health is.
Without our health, we can’t care for those we love, run our businesses, and enjoy our lives.
So how long does it take to get fit and healthy?
It will be different for everyone, but there are a few things I know:
- Starting small makes things easier.
- Don’t try to change everything all at once.
- If we work in 30-day increments, it’s easy to add new habits that stick!
We need knowledge, action, and consistency to make a fitness plan that works.

There is loads of knowledge out there to be had, but we tend to fall short when it comes to action and fitness consistency. That’s why we use a layered approach when trying to reach our health and fitness goals, adding a new layer each month.
The Monthly Fitness Layers we use are:
- Movement – a minimum of 30 minutes a day of cardio at a level where you KNOW you are doing something; this is not a stroll 🙂
- Reduce sugar intake from sweets, processed foods, and alcohol
Need some extra support to reduce your sugar intake? Register for our 5-day Sugar Reset. (new Resets happen all the time, just jump on the list)
- Sleep more ~ Stress-less

- Nutrition and hydration
- Fun, Adventure, Play
Each month we bring in the next layer to try, test, and see how each layer will fit into our lives.
