We all have ups and downs when it comes to our own health and fitness... Even trainers do... but after 30 years in the fitness business and being dedicated to continuing education I have a couple of things I would like to share and say! Hopefully I can be of service... no matter how fat headed you may think I am. ;-)

It Starts Today!
Monday, June 25th, 2012
Hi my name is Bill Busch. I have worked in the fitness industry
since 1985 and have held a lot of roles; Personal Trainer, Fitness Director,
Group Exercise Instructor, Nutrition Counselor, Business owner.
Currently, I have been a Muscle Activation Techniques™
Specialist since 2005 and have in last 3 years developed what I call the Still
Motion Fitness™ Workout for my clients as a progression to get back into a
healthy, fitness lifestyle after MAT™ Treatments.
But that’s not why I am starting this blog today. I am
starting this blog because I am a 47 year old, single Dad and I weigh just a
little over 200 pounds and according to my scale I have 29% body fat. Ouch! Am I obese by any means, no... but I am and feel out of shape
and overweight. Maybe just like you!
I have, since I was 38, struggled
with starting and stopping, what should be easy for me, a healthy lifestyle… I
should have no excuses, right? I am a trainer! Should be easy! I didn’t purposely
gain 20+ pounds over the last 10 years, I just got caught up in what everyone
else gets caught up in… Life!
Married at 38 years old, had a kid when I was 40, divorced
at 44, struggled with different jobs, starting my own business and finding the
time to work out and eat healthy just like everyone else.
I get it! All those years I had no empathy for my clients in
finding time to be healthy, I finally get it. At one point, in the last couple
of years, I was almost 220lbs. The last time I was 220lbs, I was a bodybuilder
squatting 400lbs, benching 315lbs and dead lifting 600lbs. I should have been
Then I had no excuses… Now, I have started and stopped so many times
since I was 38 I can’t tell you. I would take pictures and make detailed plans
of what I wanted to accomplish… 180 and ripped… again. NOT! Nothing ever seemed
So yesterday I weighed in, took measurements, took pictures…
just as I have done every time before.
What makes this time any different? Will it be the diet? Is
it the Still Motion Fitness™ Workout? Well if you are reading this and care to
follow. We are going to see… And maybe we can all get a little smarter about
how to stick with a healthy lifestyle.
