I came across an interesting article this afternoon and thought I would share.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has always been a fitness icon in my mind.  He inspired many people to take up lifting weights and bodybuilding in the 1970s and ’80s.  With his success as an actor in the 1980-90s and later his roll in politics, his public profile expanded even more.

Now at the age of 71 and after his own experience with open heart surgery, he discusses the fitness industry’s failure to make people healthier and fitter.

“A healthier, fitter America starts with you. There is no gimmick. There is no shortcut. There is no magic pill. Everyone’s fitness journey will be unique, but a healthy lifestyle takes commitment, patience, and motivation.”

His message is clear and he offers a timely as the holidays are around the corner:

“So here’s my challenge to you: Don’t wait for New Year’s Resolutions. Don’t wait for your own heart surgery or emergency. Start right now. And ask a friend to join you.”
