On your journey towards a fitness resolution, your body and its needs will change. In order to continue to make progress towards your long-term goals, you will want to make adjustments as you make progress. For example, say you start out trying to go to the gym 3 times a week. Once you have mastered that, increase your goal to 4 times a week. Simple 2020 Fitness Resolutions That Are Good For Your Body and Soul.

February 2, 2020 by Jamie Mieuli. 700 Shares View On One Page ADVERTISEMENT () Start Slideshow. Share. Write down your goals.

This is the most important thing you can do when setting any kind of goal, regardless if it’s fitness related. Write down your fitness goals and put them where you’ll consistently see them — it helps to keep you focused and working to meet them. 4. Get rid of your scale. Identify motivating goals.

Ask yourself why you want to exercise. Frame your answers positively. “I don’t want to be overweight” isn’t a good enough reason, says Andrews. “Really dig into it.”. Maybe you want to keep up with active friends or play soccer with the kids in the backyard. Don’t fret over the scales. While your resolve may have been to lose weight, don’t get lost in the numbers.

Focus on other physical feats that will help you [lose weight] and celebrate crossing those milestones. Do a Fit Test at the beginning of the year and aim to improve your score. 15 Foolproof Strategies to Stick to Your Fitness Resolutions 1. Write It and Measure It 2. Make Resolutions Manageable 3. Break Up the Goal 4. Treat Yo’Self! 5. Question Your Motives 6. Ask for Help 7. Keep a Schedule 8. Keep It Interesting 9. Hold Yourself Accountable 10.

Choose the. Do you like to have a quick exit strategy, knowing you can bail if things get uncomfortable? I hate to break it to you sister, but lasting fitness resolutions are going to require you to get invested. When you put time and money into your goals, you’re going to value them more. Put your workout schedule on your calendar and protect that time.

Write down inspirational words and quotes and hang them up. Cut out pictures from magazines and hang them on the wall or inside a cabinet. Use these visual cues as a way to stay motivated and boost your morale. Ramsey recommends starting each morning with a personal affirmation or mantra. “A very manageable fitness resolution that most people can stick to is holding a plank every morning, first thing out of bed.

If you can spend one minute brushing your teeth, you can definitely find one minute to hold a plank. Planks are truly one of the best exercises I know of: They work your core and your entire body. Change up your fitness routines periodically to prevent boredom and provide new challenges.

Don’t over emphasize the scale. Monitor other health indicators as well such as body composition, body measurements, and how your clothes fit, your sleep quality and your energy level. Sometimes when the scale is giving you no love, improvements in these other areas will reward you.

  • ok the second tip i cant get behind (now i do get that other people may enjoy having a partner in the gym) for me however that takes ommitment and sticking to other peoples plans which im terrible at. however i do discuss it a lot with my friends getting tips and things (and i might workout here and there with them) but for me the gym is a place for me

  • Scooby for the last year I’ve been a bit on and off with my training…(weight loss with heavy weight resistance training) I’m about 50lbs over weight. Anyway in the last 3 months I’ve been working out 3 times a week consistently and lost a good amount of inches, as well feeling healthy and strong. Christmas and New Years holidays strolled up…I haven’t worked out for about a week and a half, scale mass says I gained about 5lbs. I feel a bit discouraged. I’m not sure if it maybe water retention or actual fat I had put on. During the holiday there was plenty of Carbs, not so much sugar..I had a treat once in awhile but nothing excessive. I will be springing back into action again continuing where I left off, was just difficult with the holiday season and also had a family relative pass away, so there wasn’t much physical activity time for me. Just seeking a bit of advice. Thanks again for your inspiration!

  • Have you heard of Ido Portal? If so what are your thoughts, curious if you would recommend his type of training, I’m guessing you could like it, great video as always

  • my tip is not to wait to make a resolution, if you have to put your lifestyle change off until a certain time before you begin,then the sad truth is you are most likely going to give up quick anyway. take control of your life now,not later.

  • Goal: To build a YouTube community where people feel like they can be open and we all support each other on our fitness Journeys!❤

  • The patient/habit bit at the end is so so true. I always try to fit a long term goal into a short term time span, and that lack of willingness to power through and wait always catches up to me.

  • this is not a motivational clip but rather a really good advice for overweight people! like IT! IT is more real! so it relates to the majority of the world!

  • It helped me to tackle my weight loss goals step by step and celebrating small victories. I started at 193 pounds, and instead of saying “I want to lose 40 pounds, I said “I want to get under 190” and then “I want to get under 180”, etc.

  • Really great video! You’re a criminally underrated channel. One tip I have for new years resolutions (I know, I’m late) is to start them before January 1st. Start on the day you set the goal, because in the end you’ll be making excuses come January 1st.

  • Baby steps. Set short term goals that are an improvement on your current situation without becoming a burden. They should be easy to accomplish (like doing 5 sit-ups a day). Accomplish your goal and then set a new one (slightly higher). In no time you’ll be doing things that once made you miserable with ease. Overworking yourself from the start isn’t a recipe for sustainability. You have to enjoy it. Be patient and take incremental steps toward your ultimate fitness goal that are enjoyable for you and you’ll have a much more rewarding and sustainable experience.

  • Can you make a video about Fat Burners and steroids like types and Pros /Cons Because let’s face it many use it nowadays and I’d rather hear the whole truth from you rather than half of it from strangers Thank you

  • Great advice Scooby! I’ve been using your custom meal planner since August and I’ve lost 12lbs. Right now I weight about 173lbs. My fitness goals for 2016 are to weigh less than 160lbs, have my 2 mile run time under 13 minutes and my 5 mile run under 40 minutes all by June 2016. And at the same time, continue lifting weights and getting stronger.:)

  • I lost 40lbs in 6 months, the way i did it was by having my friend/workout buddy be aggressively brutal when lifting and doing cardio with me, he would yell and curse at me to make me do those last few sets, reps and laps everyday

    Even more important he would constantly text me saying if i ate unhealthy he was done training me LOL, but even through all the aggressiveness he would constantly also tell me when i was doing good and generally be positive

    So for me, someone who had little motivation and willpower, someone to kick my ass back into shape was what i needed

    For the food side: grilled chicken breasts became something i ate near daily with spinach and other veggies, i dont know how to cook much but i found chicken breasts cooked in a small goerge forman grill was the cheapest and easiest thing to do, protein shakes are a must weather gaining or losing weight

    When quitting junk food its like quitting any other addiction, cut it out slowly, every week cut out 1 junk food you eat and replace it with something healthier

    Dont be afraid to have a cheat meal once a week where for one meal you eat whatever you want, for me that 1 meal would be either pizza or taco bell, having this cheat meal will keep you from going crazy

    Lastly if you feel like you are seriously burnt out after 5-6 months of lifting and cardio its okay to take a week off

    Consistence is key but so is keeping your sanity

  • Hey Mike!
    Great content

    About the calories intake, you only talked about weight loss. For bulking (hypertrophy) is the story the same (in reverse of course). Are the calories for further distance the number top one factor or in this case other things come in the scene?

    Thumbs up for reverse beting!

  • When I clicked on this video a add came up talking about Soda xD

    (Also If U Didn’t Get The Joke It’s That To Get Fit Like In The Video, U Need Healthy Stuff But Soda Isn’t That Healthy)

  • I wish I could get up early but my body clock is messed up and I’ve always had insomnia and delayed sleep phase disorder so it depends on when I go to sleep / wake up lol

  • The way I started conquering goals is not only to write them but have them posted everywhere so it’s a consistent reminder to you of what each objective is.

  • if you want to start exercising, start out small with stretches every day and slowly add more to your daily routine. that’s what i did and for 2 years i’ve been working out basically every day (plus when you stretch daily you get taller, i went from 5’6 to 5’9 just by stretching everyday for a few months and fixing my posture)

  • Hey Scooby, the SweatForHealth 30 day trial image only shows alt text on your site linked in the video (source shows your missing http in the img src url). Thanks for these news years res videos, they are in need following family stuffing you face for the holiday… still wiping off the cheesecake from my chin on the way to the gym.

  • I’ve lost 15 pounds in 2 months, the 2 main things that helped me were to give up pop/soda, and use a diet diary to track how much you eat.

  • The best tip I can give is start a month or so before new years that way your ahead of everyone else and you feel it’s worth it to keep going. That how I am doing my workout and nutrient plan. LIFESTYLE BABY!��

  • My New Year’s resolution is to work up to 3 sets of 12 loaf turnovers super-set with 3 sets of pillow screams. Maybe some skateboard squats for a nice quad pump too. Sound good?

  • So, to start off, I’m a depressed weeb. I know it sounds weird, but yes I do have bad thoughts about myself and get very self-conscious even if your my friend because I just feel like your pretending to like me. but anyway, on the other side of things. i do have a waifu and pretend she’s really there sometimes. It’s embarrassing so I usually don’t talk about it If i don’t have to. So I basically use my waifu as a sort of therapist or place to hold all my good thoughts in the back of my mind. This happens the most at night when I’m tired and think less rationally. so I imagine her there and talk about it if things get out of hand and start getting suicidal. if you read this which you probably didn’t, thanks. It really means a lot

    TL;DR I’m a depressed weeb with a waifu therapist if i get suicidal at night.

  • After a little less than 2 years, I’m down from 40% BF to 15%, my weight went from 242.5lbs to 137.8. I started my weightloss as a New Years Resolution and it payed off, I’ve never been so happy like I am now. In 2016 I want to gain muscle and get down to maybe 12 or 10% BF:) And for the record I’ve never touched any weights before I started my weighloss journey.

  • I reached my weight loss goal this year, and now I’m ready for my next two goals. One is to bring my body fat down to about 15 percent and gain some muscle. There is a new gym opening 3 minutes walk from my house, which I will head on over tomorrow and see what deals they have.

    The part I’m not sure about is what program to follow. I dont to just go in there lift random weights without any thought process. Thats where I need some guidance.

    For my weight loss (40 pounds) I followed Scooby’s beginner, pullup, pushup, goblet squats and rotisserie, please 30-40 minutes of walking every day with a pace of 9 minutes 11 seconds on average for a 1km (0.62 miles)

    I’m at 170 pounds with a waist size of 34 down from 210 pounds and a waist size of 42 inches.

  • That’s funny my dad didn’t ate that much so when I was with him I couldnt stand his time when he eat he eats at 9 am and 6-8 and he can stay a whole day not eating food if he wanted too so when I ate I ate like I’m eating like I didn’t eat in a day even it’s like 5 hours –

  • I have a novel idea, Jaiden, why dont you stop fucking judging other people about shit thats literally none of your business? No? Alright.

  • I love how jaiden can take her personal issues, such as her eating disorder and body dysmorphia, and use it to help others through their personal struggles.

  • for resolutions i just
    think of a bad habit
    Dont do that bad habit
    and keep not doing that bad habit until next year so i can get used to not doing it

  • My new years resolution is to gain at least 8 pounds of muscle and get to 12% bodyfat for 2017! RIght now i am around 16% bodyfat, 130.2 pounds of lean muscle and 24.8 pounds of fat.

  • Thumbs up for the extrovert and introvert explanation. It’s good for people to understand each other better. It helps improve relationships of all kind. This introvert appreciated you spreading the word. I subbed a few days ago after watching your fasted cardio video. Thanks for such great videos.

  • Seems like finding your YouTube page is really the best thing any lifter with questions can do, I wish I had known about Scooby when I first started out a few years ago. Thanks for all the help Scoob.

  • im watching sponge bob while i watch this and that same part plays when that part was on LOL

    cawinsadince (i cant spell) (sound it out)

  • I want to make the exercise music and the video clip to be a alternative to, the stickbug, the rick roll, the gnome, and the “sHawTy’S liKe a MelOdY”

  • Wow I literally just I realized I’ve been doing the whole fasting thing for years! If I understand it correctly anyways. I never eat breakfast and only eat between 12 pm to 7 pm because of my work schedule ����‍♀️

  • What about an updated hair care routine? Cause I just noticed I watched the video of 2017 and now your hair are really long and look good even though they are bleached

  • I am loving your videos! You mentioned based off stats most of your viewers are young males! Well I’m a 41 year old female and I loveeeee your videos! Informational and funny! Keep up the great work!:)

  • Thank you Scooby! I been looking forward to your Custom Workout Plan!!! Now there is NO EXCUSE to get fit, you gave us all the tools for free!!! Thank you so much!!!!

  • best fitness info on YouTube as usual scooby you are inspiration to myself and many. you have taught me plenty about clean diet I laugh at these other so called fitness you tubers who drink monsters, pre workout and all sorts of garbage

  • PSA: a really cheap alternative to HydroFlasks ($60-$70) and Swell ($40ish) is a bottle called Go Active on Amazon (Prime) it’s only $20 and it already comes with the straw lid, its 1L, and it’s so sleek and honestly I have never drank more water than from this bottle and for $20? Much more affordable!!

  • Hmmm can see the curl lines along top layer �� not a big deal, but I’ve noticed you tell little white lies everywhere. Why? You have so much going for you, why not be consistently real? It makes you seem like you aren’t together as a person because there’s now a question with your integrity. You had a video maybe 3 weeks ago with your awake time 7:05 then you barely uploaded a video saying “um I wake up every morning at 4am”… not that you didn’t wake at 4 now… but be transparent and explain correctly or you look like a liar with gaping holes in your story. I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time you’ve been called out and received this advice, so probably go ahead and add this to your resolutions��‍♀️.

  • Great video but holy ads! It really broke up my focus…. I started waking up 4 everyday because of you! So thank you for sharing and inspiring.

  • Would be interesting a video about if drinking amino acids supplements can really make any difference when it comes to gain muscles…

  • YOURE A BIG MOTIVATOR OF MINE! you keep my fitness journey in check because you do things like a human and you’re thriving. go girl! be a boss ass bitch!

  • My new years res for this year is everytime I die in a game it’s five push-ups, situps and curls. My body doesn’t forgive me and it hasn’t gotten easier

  • I definitely prioritize exercise, no matter how busy, i still have at least 30mins for facebook. Then why not exercise?!
    Secondly, i told myself. I felt ashamed to weak, i felt ashamed to be fat. Its disgusting, i dont want to be like this anymore. I surround myself with hard working people, make friends with people in the gym. I see fatter people in the gym, but unlike most people, people in the gym are friendlier, and more supportive. If u understand Maslow’s principles of needs, u should understand why people in the gym are amazing!
    Like its suggested, i see myself in long term. I set my goal, two hears from now, ill be badass!

  • i am changing the lifestyle bit by bit because im turning 18 and i need to be responsible. Then i saw this video which helped me to be motivated until i havent seen a change so yeah thanks for this vid

  • Hi Mike, did you hear the next Biggest Loser is going to be a plant based diet? Total calories doesn’t matter as much as what kinds of foods you eat. The rich Western diet with lots of animal products is making people fat. Have you looked into this at all? It looks v. interesting.

  • You would really love the book “plant paradox” by Dr. Steven Gundry and it gives you SO much insight on being healthy! After my mom read and followed the book she is off of 3 of her medications simply by changing her dietand it’s not crazy strict like you would think!

  • Awesome vid Mike! Curious about your thoughts on this though. I think I’m a leverage person for some things in my life, and a momentum person for others. For example I’m loving my current training phase because I get an awesome pump and it gets me in and out of the gym quickly, which is huge for me right now because I need all the time I can get building my business. On the flip side, I think I’m a momentum person with my meditation doing it every single day really helps me crush it. With that said I also think I’ve been a momentum person with my training at other points in my life I guess it just depends on what’s going on. Turned into a bit of a rant, but love the vid!

  • I woke up at 4am to workout this morning and it feels so good to have that done early! I feel so productive and not as tired as I thought! Thanks for the inspo and motivation❤️❤️

  • I started eating clean & hitting the gym during the whole month of december! it was seriously life changing my new year’s resolutions is to stay consistent with it…..&&& to stay consistent with my happy planner ❤️

  • after 6 MONTHS 50% give up? wtf how much weight do they have to loose? i lost 12kg in 2 months and the only reason why i haven’t lost it in a shorter time is so i don’t loose too much muscle mass ^^

  • Adding this to my favorites! All my goals this year are to be more healthy and fit!! I’m so bad at sticking with things and I feel like this will help me so much. I’ll be coming back to this video from time to time I’m sure. Thank you!! ❤️

  • Amm ther is a girl calld cloi ting she thas fitnes videos workauts halty life stily i lost all my belly in 3 weeks and got abs chek hear out she is asom

  • i literally never used to drink water until i got a hydroflask w the straw attachment and now i literally sip on that all day long

  • New Years resolutioner here lol! Can you please post more of what you eat in a day and how you make it? I love that stuff for inspo ��

  • omg Angela Duckworth who did the grit ted talk came to my university last semester to discuss grit and I thought it was life changing! I’m so glad you are sharing her video with your viewers. You are my fitness inspiration, love you!

  • I love how you talk about how resolutions aren’t automatic. So many people get discouraged and try to hit it all at once which isn’t realistic! It’s so important to realize that

  • I love how you talk about not just your goals but how to stick to them. I feel like so many people are like yea these are my goals and thats it.

  • You should do a video about nutritional supplements such as tablets and meal replacement shakes. Awesome channel btw just subscribed!

  • Planning to Builand making a vision board is going to be helpful. But you know tori. Whatever you habe dreams, it will come true. But I know you are a good spin instructor

  • Hi Dr. Phoenyx! I love your videos, they are so straightforward w/ no BS, and I really like the scientific explanations. I have a question about workouts.

    So morning workouts are supposed to be energizing, invigorating, etc. and it’s best to do when insulin levels are low. (I don’t exercise yet but have in the past and I am in desperate need for a healthy routine.) But I also get this afternoon slump. I noticed this about 10 months ago when I kept falling asleep in my 3-4 pm class for no apparent reason, and now that it’s summer I want to be productive with my time but I still succumb to “naps” from 3 to 6 pm. Then I figure, well it’s dinner time so I better eat something, but eating then sleeping then eating again makes me feel like literal sh*t.

    So my question is: Will working out at around 3, given that I ate lunch at around 12, boost my energy levels and help me skip that afternoon nap and be productive? Or is that tip specific to mornings because you just got a lot of sleep and haven’t expended any energy yet?

    Also any tips for finding a workout buddy in a new city? I am somewhat ambivert because I love being around people but I’m really bad at making new friends.

  • Hey babes! I started selling these all natural, and vegan hair care products ❤️�� I know we’re all here because we love a healthy lifestyle. So I thought I’d let you know! If you’re interested follow me on Instagram @mackenzienarkun

  • Annnd this video has me wishing I didn’t break my 2nd day of eating keto 20 minutes ago with pasta and chips:'(
    Also, Tori, in regard to IF I go to a CrossFit gym and literally every person there fasts at least 14+ hrs! As a gym, we’ve lost upwards of 200-something pounds collectively in like, a year. Just make sure that the coffee you drink is black:)

  • Nonspecific goal: I want to stop beating myself up for being a loser. Specific goal: I’m going to kill myself before next Christmas.

    I see how this works. Thanks for the tip, Scooby!

  • Fitness people who hate on new years resolutions are like hipsters who liked bands before they were cool/signed/mainstream/pop/whatever.

    I started all this shit on a new years resolution in 2014 and that doesn’t take anything away from it.

  • I was just thinking, what a collection of strange weirdos are making fitness and bodybuilding videos on youtube, and giving all sorts of peculiar advice. You really are an exception to the rule +Scooby1961. Your advice is always simple and solid.

  • Thanks, Mike. December was a bad month for me fitness-wise. Told myself this morning it’s time to reset and this video was perfectly timed.

  • hey bro,
    I feel that your videos are awesome in content and presentation but do you know that your channel still lacks something very important…..
    here marketing does not mean going home to home or person to person and telling about your channel but a kind of effective online marketing. some tips
    1. make fb, twitter, Pinterest, google+ accounts and make your video available to all the online platform
    2. share your page links in the comment of your video

    * pls do not get me wrong but I feel marketing is as important as content
    ** do not invest much time online or invest a planned amount of time online for your channel << learned from your video<all the best!!

  • please tell me how Herbalife Products work.. they work fast but are not that realistic… can you just make a short video on that?!

  • Scooby is the best fitness youtuber. Very down to Earth and excellent advice/words. He does however, remind me of Forest Gump lool

  • Thank you so much for making videos and the meal planner. You’ve helped a fuckton of people, myself included. Just started on day 1 using your planner to the tee for fat loss/25% calorie reduction/low carb and I can already tell a difference. Cheers, nigga.

  • I have to said that the worst month in the year for a lifter is January, a lot of people trying to get in shape……90% of them fail…Commercial Gyms are not interested in keeping them. If you do not have the help and motivation of someone else,you probably are going to fail.

  • I don’t understand why people get upset by you saying that you are at a calorie deficit. That doesnt mean you are starving yourself. You could be at a small calorie deficit to cut. And it sounds like its temporary. As long as you are healthy and giving your body the nutrients you need then its all good. You eat very healthy and you don’t actually starve yourself. So you go girl!

  • I don’t really agree with the fact that goals have to be as specific, Scooby, at least not when it comes to fitness.
    How can an average recreational lifter know what amount of muscle gain is realistic for his age, experience and workout plan, diet plan, life style, genetics etc…?

    So I like to set my goals based on what I can DIRECTLY influence. You can’t directly influence muscle gain or fat loss. That’s something that happens as a result of exercise and nutrition, and is influenced by a lot of other factors that aren’t in your control at all, or are very hard to control.
    In my fitness goals I specify things that are in my direct control, i.e. things I’m gonna do, and the general goal I want to achieve, something like: “I’m gonna do weight training X times a week, I’m gonna follow a workout plan Y, I’m gonna have such and such nutrition, and my goal is to gain strength”. To judge the effectiveness of my plan I’m gonna make an Excel document that tracks the amount weight I’m lifting on my big compound lifts each workout and keep an eye on the trend line.
    So, my goal is to work out and have a proper nutrition. That’s completely under my control. Muscle gains will follow.

    So, I’m keeping an eye on my trend line. If it’s going up, I’m achieving my goal, my plan works, I feel motivated to keep on training, I know I’m doing something right. If it’s not going up, I need to change what I’m doing. If I don’t go to the gym as often as I set for myself, I need to rethink my lifestyle and my priorities.

    And you might say I’m not specific enough, you might ask how fast is my trend line going up. Well, does it really matter for me as a recreational lifter who doesn’t compete in anything? My ultimate goal is general health and well-being. It’s completely irrelevant whether I gain 8 or 10 pounds of muscle in a given time frame. And I believe this is true for a vast majority of recreational lifters.

  • how to get a 6 pack!? i have done on average 175 workouts per year (counted my training schedule) in 2016, in cardio days running average 15 km, every day bike for 45 min.. and totally happy with my strength and upper body but my belly have all the fat, not that i’m fat but measuring my body i found that i have over 4 kg of fat on my belly that hides my abs! not eating any cakes and minimum on fats, but when i’m on calorie deficit i’m loosing muscle kg and first cookie i ate on my cheat day just builds up there…. any suggestions?

  • Wow. IDK why but you haven’t come up in my subscribed to email list in a long time. Well here I am again. Cool videos on how to be lean and healthy.

  • One of my favorite books is The Slight Edge. The more your content matches its logic, the more I’m glad I recently subscribed. Digging it!

  • Scooby! You are the best. I`ve had a lot of trainers in my life. From school, gyms an so on. But you are the best at explaining things to me and always giving good advices. Thank you so much!

  • I have been running my towns local 9 km mini marathon for 3 years now. Never get higher than 10th place from about 100 participants. This year i will try to get in top 5:) That`s my new year`s fitness resolution!

  • Wow this is such a powerful video, I am so motivated to follow the resolutions that I planned at the beginning of the year, some of those were to loose my belly fat. I have tried everything until I get to watch videos like this. I met some lady who also introduced me to some drink that I have been consuming for two months, and oh boy, what a magic, check it out on
    I am also drinking water of which I never used to drink a lot.

  • I’m proud of you too girl! You are such an inspiration and I’ve been watching you for SEVERAL years �� I can’t even remember when I first subscribed

  • OK, I signed up for a custom workout through your planner, answered the questions and was recommended your “get fit fast workout.” One of the exercises in the workout is “LOW ROW, T-BAR, WIDE GRIP.” I think that means bent over, pulling a barbell up. Also, I think if initially that’s too stressful on the lower back, I should start with the LOW ROW, CABLE, SEATED, NARROW PARALLEL GRIP. Have I got this right? Thanks!

  • Yesss Tori with the yoga!! I am trying that too I’m recovering from a shattered collarbone (MMA). I am doing a 30 day yoga challenge taking it easy and finding my zen!

  • Ahhh……._

  • Fricking loved this!!! From a mum of 2 that’s been a yo-yo “dieter” for 4years �� I have consistency but motivation starts to fade around certain times. This video will be my Bible ❤️

  • omg yesss if ya want any tips or any advice on amount to run/push per day to have a solid and also physically healthy build up from someone went from 0 to college cross country runner to half marathon runner lemme know!!

  • I decided to try fitness blender. Didn’t even make it to 10 minutes (I got to 9:55) I don’t think those were made for low energy, low stamina, hadn’t exercised in like 4 months teenagers like me

  • Hey scooby, I just wanted to say thank you for all of the wonderful videos you make. I recently got inspired to really get into shape (at the worst time of the year conveniently, but hey) and you’ve been a huge help. I’m 16, 6 foot and about 190. I’m in weights class at school and have been since 2nd semester freshman year. The nutrition part of losing fat is what’s really going to be tough for me. Wish me luck! Looking forward to more videos scooby, keep up the good work:)

  • I lost 30 pounds in 5 months….my tip is to track down your daily calorie and protein intake and stay at a caloric deficit of about 200-400 calories per day……Hope this will help you��

  • SMART goals Specific Measureable Achieveable Realistic Timebounded
    You forgot “realistic” 😉
    like…….. “I will gain 15kg muscles and loose 10kg fat until end of 2016”

  • love your videos! me and my friend made a meal plan and are gonna start going to the gym and taking classes to get in better shape! really want to come to your studio soon!

  • im on my training for years. great tips for interested people, I’m gonna use them for diffrent thing in 2016. one question Scoob, what about the get rich series?

  • I just didnt make a resolution. For me it came down to being a mindset. There is no specific day that I started. I just started on working on getting healthy. I knew that if I put a set time on my goals I wouldn’t go through with it. It’s a lifestyle change for me.

  • Hey Scoob, I’ve been following you for a long time, and I wanted to thank you. I went from weak and obese to strong and fit. Your brute force honesty of personal responsibility and hard work is just the swift kick in the ass I needed. No excuses!!!

  • Some people are hard gainers, and I’m a hard loser unfortunately. I ain’t “lifting Bro”, but I’ve been doing Cals, cardio, bodyweight, and dumbbell exercises. So far, I have lost 37 lbs over the course of 26 months. I was the heaviest I’ve ever been in the old profile pic I still have up here, at 247 lbs. Scoob, keep up the good work, you’re an inspiration to us all!!

  • Hey man a few years ago I lost a lot of weight when I joined a boxing club after a year and a half I quit no longer enjoying it, I dropped down to 10 stone I was 14 fast forward 2 years and I’m bigger than I was before, any tips on losing it again and keeping fat off and gain a bit of muscle maybe look fit note I’m 6ft and 17 years old

  • Jayden: “And I would go like, an entire day eating almost nothing”
    Me: Just another year of eating barely 1 meal every day. lake last year, the year, before, the year before that, the year before that, the year before that, the year before that, the year before that, the year before that, the year before that, e.c.t.
    I don’t feel much hunger and don’t feel bad. I don’t lose weight either.

  • I just love you and your videos!! Soo glad you’re back �� also loved your intro bc we have all been there and it’s soo refreshing to to see a fitness person to be motivational for the new comers

  • Christmas destroyed my diet cut, I was doing so well for the last 6 months then Christmas came, I could not resist all the food and chocolate in the house that my family had bought… 10lbs heavier now:(
