If you’re new to 12 Minute Athlete, here’s what we believe:
You don’t need to spend hours in the gym in order to get in shape.
Short but intense workouts are all it takes to get fitter than you ever thought possible.
You don’t need a lot of equipment to get in the best shape of your life.
Just a few pieces of basic, primal equipment will do. And if you want to work out just using your own bodyweight, that’s cool too.
Nutrition is important, but should never be obsessed over.
Eat whole foods whenever possible, get in plenty of protein and avoid too many carbs, eat your fruits and veggies (especially veggies), follow the 80/20 rule and you’ll be just fine. Oh, and make sure to allow yourself a treat every once in a while.
The key to getting—and staying—fit is to always believe you can do it.
Never, ever give up. When you fail, just get back up and try again. You can conquer the world if you only put your mind to it.
“If you have a body, you are an athlete.”
