It just might change your life… A 27 year old mother of two young children looks at herself in the mirror and smiles. Over the past year she has dramatically transformed her physical appearance after having tried and failed multiple times in the past. She isn’t worried about going back to how she used to look because this time it’s different. She has experienced a fundamental shift in the way she thinks about and reacts to change. A recently married 30 year old retail manager feels that he is finally achieving the physique he’s always wanted. More importantly he is doing it in a way that fits with his lifestyle and for the first time in a long time he can see light at the end of the tunnel.
What do these people have in common? They succeeded in motivating themselves to exercise the ‘right way’ by learning how to effectively build, strengthen and maintain their motivation to exercise. They succeeded by ‘exercising change’. In Exercise Change – Build, Strengthen and Maintain Motivation to Exercise, change expert Matt Williams takes us on an introspective journey that compels us to challenge our thinking and behaviour around making exercise related changes. With an ability to translate complex psychological theories into practical and insightful narratives, Williams brings to life a whole new understanding of exercise motivation through the introduction of a new model of change, the Exercise Motivation Change Cycle or EMCC. Along the way we learn why some people struggle to make exercise related changes, despite years of trying, while others seem to have a remarkable ability to start and stick with an exercise programme on their first attempt. We delve into the minds of behaviour change experts as well as everyday people who have accomplished extraordinary things to explore exactly how to make and maintain exercise related changes. We discover how the right habits and mind-set were crucial to the success of nine time Coast to Coast winner Steve Gurney, Junior Mr Universe Kagan Orton and NZ cricketer Andrew Ellis. We go inside the minds of medical professionals, coaches, and martial artists and see how a well-rounded understanding of motivation and change can mean the difference between wanting to do something and actually doing it. At its core, Exercise Change contains a refreshingly simple and empowering message: The key to exercising regularly, getting fit, losing weight, and improving health is understanding change. Change doesn't have to intimidating. As Matt Williams shows, by harnessing much of what you probably already know and are capable of doing, we can transform our bodies, our minds, and our lives.
Editorial Reviews Review "This book demonstrates how powerful our minds are and helps you to understand how thoughts affect behaviour and the role this plays in making positive changes. Embracing change opens the door to opportunities and Exercise Change provides you with the resources to make things that you thought were impossible happen." Monty Betham, former Professional Boxer, New Zealand Rugby League footballer and the Founder of the Monty Betham Steps for Life Foundation
"Many people talk about the importance of motivation and the need to change habits in the pursuit of optimal health and well-being yet very few offer real, simple and effective tools and advise for people to actually achieve this. This book not only offers sound and practical advice to help us achieve great things but lights the spark for motivation itself. An excellent resource and guide for anyone wanting to achieve success and for those who have stopped believing in themselves this is a must read, I believe it will change your life"

Also the resources that go along with this book (under the 'DO' section are a fantastic bonus.
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful 5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book!! December 14, 2013 By sam Format:Kindle Edition The author has done an excellent job transforming the original model of change, TMM or Transtheoretical model of behaviour change, into an easily understandable and practical model of his own, the Exercise Motivation Change Cycle or EMCC. The great thing about the EMCC is that it is exercise specific and gives anyone wanting to make exercise related changes some great information along with some fantastic practical methods of how you can actually put plans into action.
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful 5.0 out of 5 stars Nice one! December 14, 2013 By Marc Format:Kindle Edition While this book covers the topics of motivation, habits and goals it is largely about an adapted version of the original Trans-theoretical model of change or the cycle of change. The cycle of change is nothing new to me but the way the author takes you through his adapted model (the Exercise Motivation Change Cycle or EMCC) really gets you thinking about all of the things you have done, are doing or might do in the future in a whole different way. I know lots of people at work who will love this book. Fantastic!
