The only reason that every single one of you is not in diesel shape at this moment is because fitness is not a priority in your life. That’s it.

I’m not saying that it’s wrong or judging you at all, but that’s a fact. And often times, it comes down to the excuse of “I don’t have enough time”.

And the problem is how do you, as a busy dad, make time for fitness on a consistent basis?

Sure, you’ll work out every once in a while, but that doesn’t do shit. You need to be focused on your goals (create one first!) and then keep your mind on it.

But it’s a lot more involved than that when you’re trying to make fitness a permanent part of your life.

Making Fitness A Priority

making fitness a priorityIf it were easy to incorporate fitness into your daily routine, everyone would be doing it. But it’s not. It’s a struggle to keep focused on making exercise a habit.

There is some aspect of your life that is getting in the way of making fitness a priority and you need to figure out what that is and then change it.

The rewards are great and it won’t come without struggle.

If you want to look awesome, feel awesome, and have a better quality of life, you have to work for it.

And the first step is actually wanting to work for it. If you don’t want to, it’s never going to happen. So how do you find that desire?

Here are 10 ideas that you can use to start creating habits that will make fitness a priority in your life.

  1. Make a plan. Know what you want and how you’ll get there.
  2. Put some money on the line. Hire a trainer, join a gym, buy a Groupon..
  3. Taking care of YOU is not selfish.
  4. Block time every day and stick to it.
  5. Find your “why”.
  6. Stay consistent once you start.
  7. Do exercise that you enjoy.
  8. Start using HIIT.
  9. Reward yourself. But not too much.
  10. Your health is not optional!

Today’s video discusses each in more detail and I’d love to hear your thoughts on what works for you.
