Assorted Health and Fitness Tips from a Veteran Trainer

After years as a train­er, Mike O’Don­nell com­piles and shares an extens­ive list of health and fit­ness tips.

As Jason said, there’s “a lot of good (and ques­tion­able) stuff in this list”. Here are my favour­ites:

  • Diet is 85% of where res­ults come from… for muscle and fat loss. Many don’t focus here enough.
  • If you eat whole foods that have been around for 1000s of years, you prob­ably don’t have to worry about count­ing cal­or­ies.
  • The eat low-fat advice was the biggest health dis­aster in the last 30 years.
  • The smartest train­er I know does not have a web­site or best selling ebook… as he is too busy train­ing real cli­ents. (Related.)
  • If you want to get bet­ter at run­ning… you run… at bik­ing… you bike… at a sport… you play that sport.
  • There is no one right way for any­thing… as 20 dif­fer­ent ways can get you res­ults.
  • Res­ults are just the simple yet import­ant things done on a con­sist­ent basis.
  • All diets fail over the long run….but life­style changes last.
  • The best thing any­one can do for their health/results is to just try new thing­s… see how their body adapts and respond­s… and learn how to take total con­trol no mat­ter life may throw at them in the future.

    Indeed. It’s simple little quotes like this that help. Too much inform­a­tion is com­plete over­load for me.

    As for the Scotch eggs: so what do you buy now when you travel to Asda? Only the one pound Walker­’s crisps?
