Screen Shot 2016-07-08 at 8.36.51 AMBob Donahue has been a member of Exercise Inc since June of 2012.  As a funeral home director, Bob’s job requires a decent amount of physical labor. As he aged he began to notice how difficult it was for him to continue doing his job. He knew he needed to start working out but didn’t know where to start.

Bob heard about Exercise Inc while listening to Denny Smith on WIBC. Denny was doing an on-site radio spot at our Avon gym and Bob deiced to stop by to, “see the facility and shake (Denny’s) hand.”

By coming to Exercise Inc, Bob has been able to regain strength in his arms and legs. When he started he was pushing  between 40 and 50 pounds with his back and now he’s pushing over 270 pounds! Bob says the workouts have made a huge difference in his ability to do his job.

Bob’s coach, Cory, has been an amazing support system for Bob during his workouts. From the time they first met Bob felt that Cory was very personable and easy to talk to. He says they hit it off right away.

During his four years at Exercise Inc Bob has continued to tell friends about how great his experience with us has been. Bob loves everything from the privacy of our gyms to the attention to detail our coaches have with our clients.

Bob says Exercise Inc is, “the greatest thing I’ve found when it comes to physical improvement. It’s personal, and I appreciate that.”

Coach Kyle Truitt and Tim Murphy

Tim Murphy has been coming to Exercise Inc since the summer of 2014. Tim went to his doctor for his annual physical, and the doctor said, “I’m just going to be blunt. You’re too fat. You’re too young to be this fat. You’re not in good shape. Your cholesterol is sky high. Your blood pressure is sky high. You have to do something! I don’t care what you do but you’ve got to get moving. You’ve got to get that weight off.”

Tim knew everything his doctor was saying was true, but reality really set in when he visited his tailor shortly after seeing his doctor. As his tailor was measuring Tim for a new suit, he told him that he was going to have to tailor his suit up from his previous one to a 40 in the waist. Tim told the tailor, “No you’re not!” That was the moment he knew he needed to do something.

As an avid listener of WIBC, Tim had heard our local advertising for Exercise Inc and decided to check it out. When he first learned about the 20 minute workout once a week, he was skeptical. But he decided to give it a shot.

Tim made an appointment at the Zionsville gym and was introduced to Kyle, one of our coaches. Tim and Kyle sat down and discussed what Tim’s goals were in coming to Exercise Inc, what he was hoping to get out of it, and what he wanted to achieve. After their meeting Tim scheduled his first workout for just a few days later.

When Tim first started with Exercise Inc, the workouts were challenging, and six days in between workouts almost didn’t seem to be enough time to recover. But now Tim looks forward to coming to Exercise Inc. It’s a highlight of his week.

Since joining Exercise Inc Tim has lost over 60 pounds and went from a 40 in the waist to a 30. Tim says the difference between Exercise Inc and any other gym he’s tired is his coach, Kyle. He can’t imagine doing the workouts each week without having Kyle by his side.

Tim said, “You don’t get encouragement from a treadmill. You get encouragement from somebody who believes you can do something even when you don’t believe you can do it.” We couldn’t agree more.

If you're like most people, you probably stayed up on New Year's Eve and watched the ball drop. I used to love to watch Dick Clark entertain us with some of my favorite rock bands as anticipation grew approaching the 60-second countdown of the Waterford Crystal Ball dropping in Times Square. This year I watched Ryan Seacrest and listened to music from artists I'd never heard of (am I really that old?). The anticipation was still the same—new beginnings, new dreams and hope for a better year. After the ball dropped, Ryan began to interview the other folks on stage with him about their New Year's resolutions. Some of them had definite resolutions for the New Year, while others had vague wishes of what they hoped might happen in 2016.

New Years CalendarI think everyone knows what the most popular New Year's resolutions are. Here's a short list—lose weight, exercise more, eat better, drink less, quit smoking and get out of debt. About 62% of Americans make resolutions each year to change something. According to, only 8% of the people who make resolutions are successful at keeping them. A 2007 study by Richard Wiseman from the University of Bristol, involving 3,000 people, showed that 88% of those who set New Year's resolutions failed, despite the fact that 52% of the study's participants were confident of success at the beginning.

Those statistics can be discouraging to the person who is wanting to make a change in the New Year. However, some other statistics from the study by Wiseman can shed some light on how to successfully make changes to our lives.

  • The most common reason for participants failing their New Year's resolution was setting unrealistic goals (35%).
  • The second most common reason was not keeping track of their progress (33%).
  • Men achieved their goals 22% more often when they engaged in a goal-setting system where measurable goals were being set, such as a pound a week, instead of just saying they wanted to "lose weight".
  • Women succeeded 10% more when they made their goals public and got support from their friends.

If you're reading this, you're probably interested in making some changes or achieving some goals in 2016. So here are some tips to help you achieve some of the things you really want to accomplish this year.

1. Put Your Goals In Writing

Goals ListAs good as this sounds, almost no one does it. Writing your goals on paper makes them real. Once you have your goals written down, don't just put them in your desk drawer—put them in a place where they can be seen daily. Read them daily and commit to them daily. With very few exceptions, winners have written goals. If you want to win at changing your life, losing weight or just having more energy, write your goals on paper and read them every day.

2. Make Your Goals Specific

Saying you want to be healthier is not a specific goal. Saying you want to get your blood pressure below 120/80 is a specific goal that will make you healthier. The more specific the goal is, the easier it will be to reach.

3. Make Your Goals Realistic

Trying to lose 30 pounds before your daughter's wedding in 8 weeks is unrealistic (I don't care what you've seen on reality TV). Losing 15 pounds in 8 weeks is realistic (1 to 2 pounds a week is a healthy rate of weight loss).

4. Make Your Goals Measurable

Saying you want to eat better is not a measurable goal. Saying you want to eat 4 servings of vegetables everyday is measurable—you can count it and record it.

5. Share Your Goals With Others

Tell your friends and family about your goals. Post your goals on Facebook. Put them on your fridge for everyone to see. Doing so will recruit a support group of friends and family who will want to see you succeed. Want an anonymous support group? There's an app for that. Check out, which is an online goal tracker designed to help you create a commitment and track your goals. You can even set yourself up to pay a fine to a charity if you don't reach your goal.

Twenty Sixteen is just getting started. You still have plenty of time to set goals for this year, or even this quarter. There's no better time than right now to set goals to have the life you want. If you've already broken your New Year's resolution, don't worry, so has everyone else.

Now let's set some goals and make things happen!
