“Hey Josiah - I haven’t been working out for awhile and I want to get back into it. Where’s the best place to start? What kind of routine should I follow? What about my diet - what’s the best diet out there?”
I get this question or something similar just about every day. People tag me all over social media when someone asks about starting a weight loss plan or getting back in the gym, so I figured I’d write a helpful checklist for you.
I know how hard it can be to start on your fitness journey after being away from it for awhile, so I’m going to break down some real simple things to think about as you get back into the swing of things.
This is a list I wish I had when I was struggling to find my way years ago. I’ve made plenty of mistakes and my goal is to help you avoid doing the same thing.
Ready to start? Let’s go!
As you can see from this picture above - I wasn't always ripped or in shape. It took awhile to become the man you see on the right, but most importantly it took one step forward each day. Starting a plan can be tough, but the results you can achieve once the momentum gets going will be incredible and well worth the struggle!

I'm a husband and father of 2 who stays fit year round and enjoys LIFE 24/7/365 - so I like to write about that.
