PERSONAL BEST FIT & HEALTHY NEWSLETTER May 29, 2020

There’s something that the fitness industry doesn’t want you to know…

In fact, I believe that this is the biggest secret to attaining that perfectly fit body that you’ve wanted for so many years.

It’s not that you aren’t trying to workout and eat right, it’s just that you haven’t been able to find that one thing to take you all the way to success.

Now, finally, I’m going to share that one thing.

It’s quite simple, and yet stands as the truest and most important fitness advice you’ll ever receive…

The big secret is that…Your daily habits create your body.

What do I mean by daily habits? The things that you consistently do on a daily basis determine your body’s shape, strength and stamina.

That’s it.

Nothing else matters as much as those daily habits.

No fitness gadget, or outfit, or pills, or powders will get you results if your daily habits are working against you.

The problem is that most people have bursts of fitness motivation, when you eat clean and workout hard for a short time…but then the motivation wears off and you go back to your daily habits.

That familiar routine that gives you comfort and security.

Your only focus, when it comes to shaping up your body, should be to make and keep a handful of healthy, daily habits. When these healthy habits become your comfortable routine, then you’ve hit fitness gold.

This is great news for two reasons:

1. First, when you do something habitually it no longer requires a lot of brain power or motivation to get it done. It pretty much happens automatically. So once you’ve settled into your daily habits you’ll easily maintain them.

2. Second, once your daily habits have been around long enough to transform your body, you get to give up the struggle of trying to lose weight. That quest, which has taken up so much of your time and mental energy, will be put to rest, leaving you time to go out and enjoy your life.

Once you’ve achieved that body of your dreams the fun really begins. Your life will take on a whole new dimension of energy, excitement, confidence and adventure.

So let’s take a few moments to determine which healthy, daily habits you will begin to include in your daily life, and continue to prompt yourself to do these until it becomes automatic and comfortable.

While you have unique situations and abilities, here is a list of ideas of healthy daily habits to get you started…

  • Daily resistance training workout – same time each day.
  • Daily cardio bonus workout (walk, jog, bike etc) – same time each day.
  • Daily protein shake to replace breakfast or lunch.
  • Daily meal prepped portions of protein, carbs and veggies.
  • Daily water drinking – bring your water bottle with you.
  • Daily green drink.
  • Daily salad.
  • Daily bonus push-ups at home.

Go on, get working on your own personal list of daily fitness habits. Make these realistic actions that you could fit into your daily life, and watch as your body effortlessly transforms over the next several weeks.

Quick note for you overachievers: resist the urge to commit to difficult or extreme daily habits.

This isn’t one of your fitness bursts that fizzle out shortly – these habits are meant for the long run. So instead of saying that you’ll run 6 miles each day, only commit to 2 miles. Do those 2 miles every day for a few months and you’ll see the value and truly life-changing powers of a daily habit.

Call or email me now and I’ll help you with your personalized list of daily habits. Of course one of those habits will be to workout with me each day! Talk about a life changing habit :)

Do you have diabetes or high blood pressure?

Did you know that by dropping as little as 5 to 10 percent of your body weight these problems can be greatly alleviated?

Just think how great you will feel after losing excess weight and improving your health!


Here’s a wonderful habit to make – enjoy tacos wrapped in lettuce rather than tortillas! It’s just as quick and easy as throwing your taco filling in a traditional tortilla and it will help you along your quest to slimming down, toning up and growing your natural energy reserves!

Here Are Our Most Popular Personal Training Starter Packages:

'Personal Best Starter Pack': Personal Best's 3 session starter package is a great way to get moving and experience up to 3 different training styles with 3 different personal trainers so you can learn about and ultimately decide which trainer and program you are interested in.

'Train Without Pain': Designed to help those with recurring aches, pains, strains, weakness, muscular imbalances and flexibility deficits, learn new exercises and movement patterns as well as improve your overall health and fitness through a corrective exercise approach and alternative fitness and flexibility training techniques.

'Fine Tune Your Workout': Designed to help people from 'going through the motions' and 'doing the same things day in and day out' without improvement or a plan. The idea behind this program is to appeal to those who may not be interested in or who cannot afford to work with a personal trainer on a regular basis but instead, meet with a personal trainer on either a bi-weekly or monthly basis to learn new training techniques such as correct form, workout intensity and exercise progression designed to optimize their own personal workouts.

Each of the above programs consists of 3 - 1 hour personalized training sessions, along with a health and fitness consultation to set you up for success in other areas of your health and wellness to achieve a well-rounded, multi-faceted approach to bring about sustainable lifestyle changes.

The cost for each program is only $195.

 "I have been with Personal Best since its inception and have never been disappointed. Dario has been my dedicated personal trainer of choice for 15 years and has kept me fit and healthy through the aging process." Linda 

"I was never someone who enjoyed working out or who would commit to a steady exercise routine. I came to Personal Best to rehab a back issue. The list of things I can do now that I could not do before starting with Personal Best could go on and on. The most important has been an understanding of what it means to commit to making exercise a part of my life." Nancy 

"Last Year, my passion for running led me to require surgery for a meniscus tear. After finishing physical therapy, achieving some level of strengthening and low level jogs, I felt something was missing. With my doctor's reccomendation, I started training at Personal Best and has since been the key to my training moving forward and continually improving. Not only have I gained strength in my knee and overall, but also, much more confidence to challenge myself." Renee 

"Personal Best has a hardworking and dedicated staff. I would recommend any of the trainers especially if you want to improve your fitness level." ​Donna

"I love the privacy of the fitness room and the care and motivation that comes from all of the trainers. As a Type I diabetic, the care and caution that Len & Winnie have taken is truly amazing. I am so grateful to them for getting me to complete a program where I have not only seen results, but also kept my blood sugar in check. After years of struggling with this, I finally feel comfortable exercising." ​Daniela 

​"A few years ago I was diagnosed with Arthritis in my hip, I was referred to Len at Personal Best and he came highly recommend that he had the perfect training technique for this type or injury/ issue. I've been seeing Len at Personal Best now for almost 3 years and I'm pain free. I see him along with some group/cardio exercise and I'm 110% better and remain in great health! Super professional matched with amazing knowledge has me continuing to be very athletic pain free!!! 5 Stars!!!!​" ​Lisa

"Len Glassman absolutely changed my life. I had the pleasure of training with Len for about a year. Unfortunately, I had to drop our weekly sessions since starting my own business. Len helped me tremendously in so many ways - aligning my posture, improving my flexibility, strengthened my core, addressed nagging soft tissue issues (neck/back/shoulder) and helped increase my range of motion, We always started the session by warming up and we ended the session with stretches. In between Len customized exercises to my body's ability, with increasing difficulty over time. He taught me how to do exercises at home so I could further my progress on my own. While exercising he was always talking to me about how I felt , ("do you feel that?") to be sure I was getting the desired result. Len also provided useful tips on eating habits and other ways to stay healthy in between our sessions. I can't wait until I am up and running with my business so I can return to our weekly schedule.​" Cheryl

"Personal Best is the only place I will go for training! Len the owner is absolutely awesome! People might say it is a bit expensive but they don’t realize it is more than just a guy yelling at you to sweat more. Both Len and Dario (my trainer) do way more than that. We talk about what food to eat and when. Go over different exercises. How to exercise at home. Generally, life coaching. How to change your life to involve fitness. I went to Personal Best 8yrs ago but lost everything I gained from them. I decided it was time to return and they were the first and only company I called!" ​Ryan
