TOP SEVEN REASONS WHY YOUR THOUGHTS PREVENT YOU FROM HAVING A HEALTHY,
HOT BODY

Has this ever happened to you? You want to start getting in shape,
eating better and exercising regularly. You begin a fitness program,
but within a few weeks, you've stopped going to the gym, and you've
renewed your friendship with Ben padding: 10px;" />In more than 17
years as a fitness trainer and nutritional counselor, I've seen people
fall into that trap, over and over again. But here's a secret that
I've learned, and I want to share with you: _One little stumble
doesn't mean your fitness journey is over!_

Before you transform your body, you have to transform your thoughts.
After seeing so many people get sidetracked by eating an extra cookie
or missing a workout, I wanted to help them get back on the _right_
track.

YOU CAN DEVELOP THE RIGHT MINDSET TO FITNESS

Most health books forget to cover the mental part of the equation,
but how you think about yourself, and how you feel about food are just
as important as any training program.

In the same way that your muscles can't get stronger without
training, you can't improve your habits without training your brain.

_BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THIS ALONE!_

Because it pains me to see well-meaning people get derailed by a
small setback, I created the _Mindset To Fitness_ e-book. This is not
an exercise or diet book: It's about mindset.

Are you ready to do what you've never done before, to be _healthier
than you've ever been before_? This book will be your companion, every
step of the way.

SEVEN MINDSET MISTAKES THAT DERAIL YOUR WEIGHT LOSS

MISTAKE: When I'm with others, I have to eat what they're eating.

TRUTH: Friends, family and co-workers aren't holding a gun to your
head, forcing you to eat cheeseburgers and fries. You have the power
to make healthy choices, independent of the people around you. No one
else can take your power away.

MISTAKE: I don't have time for healthy eating.

TRUTH: Many of my clients are very busy with stressful, fast-paced
careers. But even on days when you're squeezing in a quick lunch at
your desk, it's just as easy to grab a salad as it is to grab a
sandwich with cheese and high-sodium lunch meat, slathered in
mayonnaise. It's all about your choices, and _Mindset To Fitness_
guides you toward the healthier ones.

MISTAKE: I have to split that appetizer with my friend.

TRUTH: If you turn down the cheesy bacon potato skins before dinner,
that's a healthy, valid choice. You're focusing on your health, so
don't fall into the trap of thinking you have to please your friends'
whims. There are strategies you can use to steer clear of these danger
zones.

MISTAKE: My friends will make me feel guilty for dieting.

TRUTH: Family and friends may feel threatened by your efforts to be
your very best. Sometimes it does make them realize how poor their own
habits are. But much of the time, _you become self-conscious_ that
you're eating something different from everyone else in your group.
_Mindset To Fitness_ shows you strategies for navigating either of
these scenarios.

MISTAKE: I'm not eating badly, I'm just being a good host.

TRUTH: Have you ever fallen off the health and fitness wagon when
guests come to town? You take them out to restaurants, and want to
enjoy their visit, but that doesn't mean you have to give up on your
goals. Out-of-town guests have nothing to do with your healthy
choices. You'll see some techniques for making those situations
easier.

MISTAKE: I just want to eat with my family.

TRUTH: Even if your spouse or kids enjoy eating foods that are loaded
with fat, sodium and sugar, you can still enjoy spending time with
them _without_ giving in to poor eating. You'll see how to get your
family in your corner, and even more important, how to adjust your own
thought patterns around this issue.

MISTAKE: There's nothing to eat around the office but junk food.

TRUTH: By changing your habits and your mindset, you'll see the
benefits of bringing your own lunch and healthy snacks to work. It's
easy to get busy at work and hit the vending machines. But that's a
form of self-sabotage that you can easily avoid with some quick
pick-me-up strategies.

HOW NEGATIVE THINKING HALTS YOUR PROGRESS

The old, unhealthy thought patterns are what's holding you back from
reaching your goals.

By consciously choosing strategies that lift you above the old ways
of thinking, you're making progress toward being a healthier you.

_Mindset To Fitness_ helps you develop some new ways of thinking, and
some ways of affirming your strength using very powerful statements.

These statements, or mantras, are proven to help people get unstuck
from self-sabotaging behaviors. You'll see mantras that have worked
for others, and learn how to use them and personalize them in ways
that work best for you.

MEET SOME PEOPLE WHO DEVELOPED A MINDSET TO FITNESS

You've seen some strategies this book will teach you. But I want you
to see the results that some of my training clients have achieved.
They've all learned to eat right and exercise, but the first step in
their journey was mastering the right mindset!

"I lost 88 lbs in 10 months, thanks to my personal trainer Nicholas!"


"I began training with Nicholas in October 2007. Back then I weighed
233 lbs and wore a size 22. Every night I went to bed with swollen
ankles and woke up each morning with stiffness in my limbs. I was
tired most of the time and had little energy to do more than watch TV.


"Once I began my personal training with Nicholas it wasn't long
before I noticed significant changes in both my body and spirit. My
energy level increased, my ankles stopped swelling and the morning
stiffness was a thing of the past. Overall, I felt really good about
myself both physically and emotionally.

"Through Nicholas's support including weight training, nutritional
guidance, and emotional coaching I was able to stay focused on my
health goals and lose the weight. Now minus 85 lbs I feel better than
I have in years. I now weigh 148 lbs and wear a size 8! People have
even told me I look 10 years younger. After years of struggling with
my weight I have finally found a program that works for me. Thanks
Nicholas, you saved my life!

\"I AM PROUD TO PROCLAIM THAT NICHOLAS BARRETT IS MY PERSONAL
TRAINER!

"Nicholas is a consummate fitness professional who takes genuine
interest in his clients's progress by providing a total fitness plan
for them which includes nutrition to weight training to cardio
exercise recommendations that are tailored to your lifestyle. If you
follow the guidelines for all three, you will get results. I have been
with Nicholas for 12 years. I made a commitment to myself to practice
the health tips I have learned for the rest of my life. That is what
happens when you see results. Thank you, Nicholas Barrett!"

- Marcy Wade....very happy client since 1997!
-------------------------

\"PUT ON CLOSE TO 17 POUNDS OF MUSCLE\"

"I've been lifting weights for years without making any noticeable
gains. But with Nick's nutritional plan combined with the heart
pumping workouts, I not only put on close to 17 pounds of muscle, I
also lowered my body fat to less than 8% in less than 3 months. The
system works, it just takes hard work and determination, but then
again, Jason wouldn't allow it any other way."

- Nate
-------------------------

\"I AM STILL LOSING WEIGHT AND SEEING CHANGES IN MY BODY\"

"As for Nicholas Barrett, he is fabulous!! I have worked out with
trainers in the past and always found that they pushed me so hard in
my workouts that I didn't want to go back. Instead of feeling
energized after working out, I felt like I just wanted to go to bed,
assuming I could find the energy to get back home. Nicholas has
somehow mastered the science - I feel energized after a workout, not
exhausted. I have never been so sore that I had a hard time
functioning the next day, and yet, incredibly, I am still losing
weight and seeing changes in my body - especially my arms, shoulders
and back. It also helps that he is a nice person, very encouraging and
personable, focused on the positive and believing that I can succeed."


- Shannon, Executive
-------------------------

\"PEOPLE ARE COMMENTING NONSTOP ON HOW MUCH I'VE CHANGED\"

"The program is working for me, although I thought I wouldn't be able
to drop this extra weight. Nicholas Barrett is great! I think the
dynamic works really well. He can see when I'm having real problems
and adjusts accordingly. He is very caring and motivating at the same
time, and I on the whole I think I'm doing well. People are commenting
nonstop on how much I've changed, which is great, but I'm still set on
continuing...I want to make this body perfect!"

- Janet, Accountant
-------------------------

\"I HAVE MANAGED TO LOSE ABOUT 15 POUNDS OF FAT AND HAVE CHANGED THE
ENTIRE LOOK OF MY BODY...\"

"Since I started training with Nicholas Barrett back in November of
2001, I have seen a total life change. It has been the most positive
thing to happen to my health in all of my 36 years. In the past I
would often decide that I need to get into shape and I'd go to the gym
but with little focus and no knowledge. Needless to say, I never made
any progress. Training with Nicholas and following a very simple diet,
I have managed to lose about 15 pounds of FAT and have changed the
entire look of my body. Friends and family who have not seen me for a
while are SHOCKED at the difference. I wanted to get in better shape
to look better and feel better about myself but I have gained more
that just that. I sleep much better at night, I have much more energy
throughout the day and I am at the point where I really enjoy going to
the gym where in the past I used any excuse to miss a workout, now I
won't let missing a workout be an option.

"Through Nicholas' patience and with his knowledge, I have learned so
much about the human body (MY BODY in particular.) Nicholas is very
receptive to MY goals and his training focuses on those goals. That is
a nice change from some trainers out there that train their clients
the same way no matter what THEY want.

"For anyone out there who is serious enough to take the first step, I
can't stress enough how valuable taking the step to contact Nicholas
would be for them! His approach to training is serious but with a very
human component. It makes all the difference in the world! Thanks
Nicholas for getting me started on the road to REAL FITNESS and
HEALTH."

"I started this program as a 50th birthday present to myself.  When
I started 22 weeks ago it was hard.  I had made the commitment to
myself to get into shape, but the first day on the program was tough.
 From struggling through my first workout to struggling through my
first days on the diet I asked myself "are you sure about this?"  But
you were there with encouragement and assured me I could do it and it
would get better.  In what seemed like no time I had settled into the
system, and can look back at that first day and ask "was that really
me?"  The graph below shows how fast and how well the regiment
worked.  I have been on many diets over the years, but this one has
the most consistent weight loss of any I have ever used (you can see
there are no plateaus).

"When certain aspects of the diet got difficult (like brown rice) you
were there with suggestions (adding salsa -- which made such a huge
difference it is something I look forward to eating!) to keep me on
track.  Your instructions for dealing with times when I must travel
allowed me to stay on track even when I could not prepare my own food.
 On the physical side, when I started at the gym I would glimpse some
people and say to myself "that is the body I want to have".  Now, I
glimpse that body in the mirror, as I can see the transition to well
defined chest, arms and legs, and six pack (something I have always
wanted).  I have never felt better, nor had more energy.  Though the
workouts are hard, I look forward to them - and miss them if
traveling.

"As an engineer, I appreciate the science behind both the diet and
the workout, and see how the two work together to achieve the ends I
am seeking.  This has clearly been the best birthday present I have
ever had."

-Mark

"I've been working with Nick for 3 months and have seen amazing
results in that time. I have never felt stronger or healthier. Nick is
passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and
enthusiasm he brings to every session. He motivates me to push past my
perceived limits to get results. I have incredible energy and have
reached my personal fitness goals quicker than I ever imagined
possible. If you are serious about changing your life for the better,
Nick will make it happen!"

Lots of your friends and neighbors have paid hundreds of dollars for
positive-thinking books, CDs or seminars. Many have probably paid a
therapist thousands of dollars, and they're still talking, with no
changes in sight!

to show more people specifically how to change their thoughts to
improve their bodies, I'm making this available for just $9.95. Isn't

long, drawn-out process. But you do have to get started! So why waste
another minute? Take advantage of this very special offer now, and
