Episode – 020 Revamp Your Habits = Revitalize Your Health – Interview with Jim Fortin

For this special New Year’s edition of Your Body Mind Fit Connection, we interview professional and personal coach Jim Fortin. Jim is a certified Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming as well as a certified Master Hypnotist. When it comes to nutrition, fitness and personal growth in general, he believes that the key to creating actual, lifelong change is not barreling through with willpower but instead using mental development to reshape your habits, attitudes, and even your very identity.

In this episode, Jim discusses how we become the stories we tell ourselves, why grabbing an extra sweet doesn’t mean we’ve failed our resolutions, and the pitfalls of relying solely on willpower when it comes to getting in shape.
