When Quitting is a Good Thing

In 2006, Lindsay Vastola quit her successful international marketing  job in Manhattan to become a fitness professional and a well respected national expert on fitness. . 

Lindsay founded Body Project Fitness & Lifestyle, with locations in New Jersey, VastPotential, a professional development company for fitness professionals, served as the editor-in-chief of the fitness industry business publication, Personal Fitness Professional (PFP) magazine, and became a frequent keynote, motivational speaker and presenter across industries.

Her latest endeavor is called  “The 8-week Body Project” which is a complete Lifestyle Program for MIndset, Accountability, Education, Nutrition, and Fitness.   The 8-week Body Project offers women a more complete approach to health that results in lasting success in all aspects of life. It is now available to fitness/wellness professionals as a licensed program so that fitness pros can help their clients reach their fullest potential and the fitness pros can benefit by helping to positively impact lives.

We asked Lindsay what lifestyle changes could be made that would be long lasting. She thinks that women get too caught up in the noise of our minds and in what we hear we should do or not do that we don’t end up listening to what our bodies are telling us. We should be listening to what our bodies want and what they are telling us after a certain workout. We also should be finding foods that give us energy and focus on how it makes us feel vs how it is impacting our weight.

Another thing that is important for finding a lasting lifestyle is education, constantly learning and finding resources. Accountability is also very important as people often try too hard to do things on their own. Surround yourself with  good people who have similar mindsets is important as well. 

Your mindset can also contribute to how you live and feel.. Our body achieves what our mind believes. Optimism is important in living a healthy, enthusiastic life. It gives you the lens to look at your whole life and to keep health and longevity. What drives a lot of what we do is our thoughts. 

As we get closer to starting a new year, think about keeping your options open, and making more room for new things. Sometimes it is important to “quit” things in order to make space for something greater. “Quit trying to do it on your own.”
