Lesson 15.2

Knowledge without action is useless


Be a lifetime learner

The learning never stops. This course is only the beginning of what you can learn in fitness. Even the smartest people on any subject are still learning. You have already proven you are willing to learn by being enrolled in college. After college, don't let the learning stop. Continue to study and seek knowledge. The answers you are looking for, someone else has likely figured out and has put it in a book or is willing to share it with you.

You can save yourself from making hundreds of mistakes by learning from others mistakes. Learning is the means to do this.

Something you want, someone has, so learn what they do and do it.

I hope this course has sparked your interest in learning more about exercise and nutrition.


Fitness for life

The sad reality is most people will not be athletic after high school or continue learning after high school or college, but this isn't you.

  • Most of us don’t exercise enough.
  • Most of us don’t sleep enough.
  • Most of us don’t play enough.
  • Most of us don’t meditate enough.
  • Most of us don’t eat the right balance of foods often enough.
  • And most of us don’t stop eating before we’ve eaten too much.

Exercise. You get out of it what you put into it. As I've said times before, I don't see the point of being fit if it isn't for life. Your body doesn't care if you used to be in shape or you used to take care of yourself. What you do on a regular basis is what defines you. As a student of this course, you are already way ahead. Take what you've learned here as a starting point for making fitness a priority in your life.


Eat like an Adult

One of my favorite coaches, Dan John, has this to say...

"Honestly, seriously, you don’t know what to do about food? Here is an idea: Eat like an adult. Stop eating fast food, stop eating kid’s cereal, knock it off with all the sweets and comfort foods whenever your favorite show is not on when you want it on, ease up on the snacking and— don’t act like you don’t know this— eat vegetables and fruits more. Really, how difficult is this? Stop with the whining. Stop with the excuses. Act like an adult and stop eating like a television commercial. Grow up."

Copy that, Dan. Good advice. I'll follow this rule 80-90% of the time.


Make fitness a priority in your life.
