1.Everyone is different
Differences in physiology, goals, lifestyle, etc. will all affect your health and fitness program. Just because someone had great results with a particular exercise or nutritional
program does not ensure you will have similar results. Your path to long-term success involves figuring out what will work best for your individual circumstances. If you do not know where to start, don’t worry, that's what I am here for.
2.You are capable of improvement
You should never believe that you are destined to fail. While you must have realistic goals, the truth is you are probably capable of much more than you believe. One key is to think seriously about what you want to accomplish and try to be as specific as possible. Different exercise and nutritional programs have different purposes. When you have specific goals, it will be much easier to pick or create a program designed to meet your goals. In many cases, long-term success or failure can be predicted by your attitude and preparation. Doing some extra work before you start and during your program will result in greater success down the road.
3.Think about your future
This may sound like common sense, but many people only think health and fitness over the short-term. A good question to ask yourself is how is my current program going to affect me in 20 or 30 years. For example if someone exclusively follows a high intensity heavy lifting program to gain size and strength, they may be successful, but over time (especially with errors in form) they will put unnecessary stress on their joints which can result in premature joint surgery or decreased functional abilities (walking, playing with their children, etc.) as they age. In addition, as you age your priorities will probably change and your training and nutritional programs should reflect those changes as well.

My website is currently going through a transition period. My services are all still being offered and some new ones might be added as well. For now, I am working on streamlining my site and will eventually update and redesign everything.
I have also updated my blog, which also has a new name: Austin Holistic Warrior. I have written some new articles and more new content is in the works. Check out my Austin Holistic Warrior blog.
Hello, my name is Ross Harrison, CSCS, NSCA-CPT
and I am a certified personal trainer, strength and conditioning specialist, nutritional consultant and I have a degree in psychology. I have been involved in the health and fitness industry since 1996 and have experience with gym and in-home training, exercise and nutrition consulting, health foods, supplements, and sports psychology.
My experience has taught me that while people are concerned about their health and fitness and there is more
available information than ever, generally people are more confused as well. This confusion stems from many sources, but frequently it is related to sales and marketing of health and fitness products or services. I have found that people who are educated about health and fitness are certainly less confused, but they also more likely to reach their individual goals.
The purpose of this website is not to tell everyone about an incredible program that they should follow, because as long as there are differences between people, there will never be a perfect program for everyone. Instead, I want to educate people about various aspects of health and fitness so they can determine what exercise and nutritional changes will help them successfully reach their health and fitness goals.
