Motivation is a very important aspect of pursuing and achieving your health and fitness goals. Without it, you’ll have a hard time putting in the effort necessary to achieve any real results. The question is, why do so many us also put off our hopes and dreams for better health because of “lack of motivation”?


As it turns out, we may have been getting the equation wrong all long. While motivation is a very important attribute in our journey toward health and fitness mastery, we may be using it incorrectly and, worse, it may be keeping us pursuing our goals and becoming our best selves


During this 3-part series on Motivation, we pick this idea apart. We look at motivation through the lens of neuroscience to see what we can learn about its underpinnings, and put a plan together to build sustainable motivation for lasting results.


In this episode (part #1) we discuss…


  • Our current equation for motivation and how it slows us down
  • What we THINK motivation is VS what it REALLY is
  • 2 types of motivation and which one you should focus on
  • Why motivation is so hard to find sometimes
  • The 3 components of motivation and how to use them correctly
  • So much more…
