Publisher's Summary

This Is the Sixth and Best Yet from Author James Atkinson: Fitness & Exercise Motivation.

Without the right mindset, no one will reach their health and fitness potential, and that's exactly what James Atkinson focuses on in this book. James Atkinson knows what it takes to set a goal, and only through sustained, consistent motivation will that goal ever be met.

This book is for anyone who wants to make a change in their life but doesn't know where to start, or doesn't think they have the motivation to meet their goals because after all, motivation is a shared quality in any type of fitness goal.

This book is about getting started toward achieving your goals, from the very first thought, at the truest starting point. It is about adopting psychological preparation and a certain mindset, and Atkinson strategically guides the listener through that process. He emphasizes that, without the right mindset, no one will reach their potential.

Atkinson is passionate about helping people meet their health and fitness goals, and that's why he wrote this book.

In this book, you'll learn:

  • How to step out of your comfortable environment and make choices that will make it easier to reach, surpass and maintain fitness goals.
  • How to decide what you want to change or work towards, find a program to follow and build on a solid foundation.
  • How anyone can achieve remarkable results in fitness and fat loss by becoming responsible enough to build mindset to the point that you are self-motivated to make the decision to make it happen.
  • Atkinson's personal experiences, lessons learned and practical advice.
  • The tools you need to reach your fitness potential, including a customizable fitness chart.

Whether you're trying to lose a few pounds or train for a particular event, Atkinson is there to help motivate and give you the strategies you need.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

inspiring

The book was good overall. The narrator did well but I don't feel he was the right pick to read a book about fitness though I do appreciate his efforts. I am going to try and go at my diet with a new mindset after reading this book so thank you for sharing your story.

Good for the novice exercisor or trainer/coach

What made the experience of listening to Fitness & Exercise Motivation the most enjoyable?

Jim has very interesting and entertaining stories about his life. I particularly liked his stories about his military experience.

What did you like best about this story?

This book gives valuable insight into the struggles and mind set of a novice exerciser. This is invaluable information as you attempt to avoid the common pitfalls of fitness. It also is evaluable information to the new trainer helping him/her understand their clientele better.

What does Matt Addis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great accent which is appropriate as Jim is also from the U.K.

Get Motivated!

As a personal trainer, I really enjoyed reading this book and was hoping for some motivation that I could bring to my clients. James Atkinson really knows his stuff and he just seems like he really wants people to succeed. I'm excited to use his methods in my own personal life to motivate myself and others around me.

I was given this Audiobook for free in exchange for my honest review.

Just the motivation I needed!

James "Jim" Atkinson has written a very motivating book on fitness and exercise. He has shared his personal stories and experiences on what works and doesn't work. I can definitely see myself listening to this book again whenever I need a nudge in the right direction.

Review of Fitness & Exercise Motivation

Jim Atkinson has teamed up with Matt Addis to provide a well scripted plan to be successful in our exercise goals. Each step is laid out with a personal story that brings substance to the guidance. I received this book free of charge and provide my review in hopes of helping readers.

Highly recommended audio version

Would you consider the audio edition of Fitness & Exercise Motivation to be better than the print version?

The narration flows perfectly and nicely sets the tone for this book, from page one.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fitness & Exercise Motivation?

Its nice to realise that even the pros have moments where their motivation and commitment are tested. I'm not alone! I can relate to the intro particularity. I've skipped gym sessions in the past when the weather has looked a bit grim.. I too cycle to gym!.

What does Matt Addis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The narrator was an excellent choice for this book. His voice not only creates vivid imagery but is also clear and concise during the more practical parts of the book

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

The books has 2 halves really and thats how I listened to it initially. I now have parts I jump to when I require a little 'pep talk'.

Any additional comments?

All in all, this is a nice little guide on mindset that can be revisited when things get tough.

A genuine acount of how to get results

What did you like most about Fitness & Exercise Motivation?

It made me think a lot more about looking internally for results, instead of waiting for things to happen.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was moved by the story in the parachute regiment because it clearly shows the limitations of the mind over the body.

Any additional comments?

Its a good easy listen that will make you think about some truths you may know, but have never put into practice. Some of it sounds a bit cliche, but that does not make it less true or inappropriate. It hits the nail on the head when it comes to the psychological warfare that gets to us all.

Started listening in the gym. finished in the gym.

what a better way to stay motivated than to have this on whilst rowing away in the gym! I've gone on to buy another book by James Atkinson and have found a much better use of my resistance bands than stuffed in the wardrobe hidden from view. I've already got one of the mantras attached to my brain when I don't feel like working out....and even on the one day I felt way too tired I took myself off for a walk and managed to use up 250 calories....I'm actually in the gym 'Jim' writing this review sat raring to go... I'll definitely be visiting the website and watching out for more....thank you Adele

Helped me get my focus

I've listened to this a couple of times over, I was looking for something to help me get my focus and quite honestly the stories about the gym goers is really relatable but I continually think about the second brother...it really struck a cord and helps me get my training in daily!

Getting started and getting motivated start here

I have just finished listening to this audio book and found it extremely motivational and the kick up the butt to get me started, some excellent useful tips too. Its not preachy like some other exercise and weight loss books can be. Jim applies it to your everyday living and with his own stories he inspires. Working on my plan today, good luck everyone on getting started by listening to this book x

Great listen - About fitness and life

I really enjoyed this. Although the focus is on fitness, it is also about life and tips to become successful through developing dedication and visualising what is possible. The important aspect was have to achieve the vision. Well done and I will have to listen to this again...and again.
