My show today is about Direction. We already talked about perspective, about correcting your attitude to adjust to your goals. Direction now is about how to set your goals, and not get distracted. Distractions are undisciplined thoughts that you entertain to justify an excuse. The greatest example of that is diet. We justify our diet by working harder so that we can eat things that are not healthy, or good for us, Thinking, that if we work harder and longer we can compensate for those extra calories. Not going to happen. Distractions are myths we belive because we want to and they make sense. Thoughts are more easily entertained because we want them to work not because they are factual.

I Don’t Want to be FAT! will give you a road map to health, fitness, working out and diet. I will help you find what work out best suits you, through time constraints and your availability to help you establish your goals. We will talk about why diet is so important and why “dieting” is so dangerous. We will go over numerous subjects on fitness and health such as the misconceptions of sugars, what makes us fat and why, how to adopt a lifestyle for healthy living and more. We will touch on issues such as stress and how it affects your body. I will emphasize the importance of working out, and how it’s effects change as you age. We will talk about supplements, how they work and why they are so important to us today, even if we are eating right. We will also discuss the importance of minerals and why our foods today don’t have enough of them and how sustaining a good diet improves mental health and decision making.
I am Marcus Aurelius. My first introduction to body building was at the age of 17 when I was introduced to my college mentor, Rob Serenja, at Cambourne Technical College in Cornwall, England. In 1986 I immigrated to America where I was able to pursue my dreams to become a body builder like my hero, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who I had the pleasure of training with for a little time at World’s Gym but I needed a job so I could live. With his help, and influences, I was hired on to my dream job as a personal trainer at Gold’s Gym in Los Angeles, California.
Since then, I moved to Austin, Texas, where I was able to work in many gyms throughout the Austin region. My most favorite gym I worked at was the East Communities YMCA because of its Christian standards and the people there were the greatest.
In 2007 I started my own gym, and now own Elgin Fitness in Elgin, Texas, where I specialize in personal training. I have a very loyal clientele base who support me and who I am. I’m very thankful for them because they were very supportive in my starting this show. Over the years, I have trained thousands of people who still do all they can to stay in contact with me.
I have always been highly respected and liked because of the insight I have been able to share, especially when it came to weight loss and fitness. Training has always been my passion and my gift. I hope through my extensive knowledge and experience from years of training I can touch your life too.
