Personal trainer Kenneth Kirkland discusses health accountability partners

How do you maintain healthy eating habits without making excuses?

I maintain healthy eating habits by remembering my past discomfort. I was once 300 pounds and I remember sweating from casual activities. That came from a lack of physical activity and poor eating habits. Now I eat with a purpose. I think of what the food will do to and for my body.

What preventive strategies can people implement into their daily routines?

A preventive strategy that I recommend to my clients and others is stretching. I suggest people make stretching apart of their morning regimen. When they wake up, pray, brush your teeth, and stretch. Stretching improves posture, decreases muscle stiffness, increases range of motion, and speeds up blood flow carrying nutrients the body needs.
