When Alex’s Health Journey Began
When I was 5 or 6 years old, my father started teaching me how to do pull ups, chin ups, and push ups but eventually life got in the way.
At around 14 years old, I started drinking, smoking, and doing drugs and I stopped exercising completely.
When I was 19 years old and at a low time in my life, I started to get back into fitness but not health as a whole.
Eventually, I was introduced to different health diets and nutrition things started working a lot better than before and my life began to transform. I now work to help people around the world to improve their health, vitality, and overall life.

The Health Mastery Roadmap
The Health Mastery Roadmap is something I assembled after many years of figuring things out myself. I found 7 steps that create lasting change.
If you want to create change, you need to first forgive yourself. Spend 20-30 minutes sitting down and connecting with your past, present and forgive yourself for the times you have self sabotaged and the times where you have ‘failed’. You need to embrace the failures. It took me roughy 718 attempts to quit smoking and when Thomas Edison created the lightbulb, it didn’t happen with the first attempt.
When you go to make a change, it won’t always happen with the first attempt. Forgive yourself and embrace failure,
Step number 2 is, you have to have a vision for your life. Arnold Schwarzenegger said if you don’t have the vision or the goal, then you’re basically just drifting around, you’re going to get no where and you’re never going to be happy. I found that completely true for myself in different areas of life.
I want you to sit down for 10-15 minutes and think about your ultimate vision. If you want to create the body of your dreams, I want you to write down a few questions and go through them. What would the body of your dreams look like? You have to believe that it’s possible.
Our brain is an incredible computer so if you mentally rehearse something, you’re most likely going to get it. It’s not some magical BS. It’s been proven by many scientists.
Step number 3 is to create a strong why. You need to create a strong why because in the moments when you lose sight of your vision, that why will be there to push you to keep going and finish strong.
Take your goal and really narrow down why you want to achieve it. If you want to lose weight, why do you want to achieve this? If it’s to get a girlfriend, why is that? And continue to ask yourself why at least 5 times to make sure that your goal is rooted by good intentions.
Everything we do in life as human beings is usually to avoid pain and gain pleasure. The pleasure you get from eating a slice of cake over a period of time might be great in that moment, making you feel a sense of happiness though, it will eventually cause health issues if done too often.
What I’m trying to teach people is that you can take back control through an empowering routine. It’s not only applicable to binge eating or over eating, but really any area of your life. The Health Mastery Roadmap is designed to help create lasting changes.
Step number 4 is replacing limiting beliefs with empowering beliefs. With any limiting belief you may have, you can start with journaling it and then questioning it. For example: “I’ve tried everything and nothing works!” Ask, “Have you truly tried everything? And then go on to replace it with an empowering belief such as, “My commitment is strong enough to my goal that I will find a way.”
As you go throughout your day, catch those thoughts, write them down and work through them.
Step number 5 is to create a game plan and start taking action. Find people who model success in what you desire to achieve and see what they all believe, their habits, etc. Once you’ve done that, create a game plan and start taking action. Small actions everyday add up.

Step number 6 is to analyze. Look closely at what is working and what is not. What works for one person might not work for you so being observant of your process is very important. It’s doesn’t have to be the scale but could be even your mood, energy, glow, etc.
Step number 7 is to eliminate what’s not working or serving you and focus more on what is.
These steps might need to be refined or gone back to over and over. If you need to start back at square one, that is okay. Realize you are a human “being” not a human “doing”.
If you can learn one thing from my talk today it should be to start taking action, one step at a time.
