Importance of Health and Fitness for the Business Leader

I was a Ford Dealer for 15 Years (1991 through 2005) and Founder and Partner of Hire The Winners, one of the fastest growing recruiting companies in the USA.

When I was an athlete nutrition and exercise was a big part of my success, that is why I started ForzaByKemp, a nutrition company in 2012 to address the nutritional needs of athletes, business leaders and anyone seeking great health and wellness. I remember how competitive the car business was when I was a Ford Dealer and consider the competitive environment in the dealership to be more stressful and competitive than any environment I've ever seen whether it's business or athletic. Dealership 'working" management are "athletes" in every sense of the word. I know that many Dealership GM's and managers often skip lunch and rarely get home for a dinner at a normal time and when they do eat it's, unfortunately pizza, fried chicken or some other fast food.

The body and mind can't perform at its best when not properly nourished. Productivity, mental clarity and acuity will improve with great nutrition and better nutrition will also help in losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight.Commit today,to being the best you can be Physically,Mentally through Exercise and Nutrition and Watch your business explode.

Great addition Sally. At age 57 I know for sure that without making nutrition, regular exercise & quiet time for reflection and meditation, a part of my daily life I would not be in the physical and emotional shape I'm in today. Thank you for your comments.

Your absolutely right Lee!  I have been in the competitive environment of the automotive world for 20 years and the main thing that keeps me physically and mentally able to continue with my original excitement and energy is my yoga practice, walks and a healthy diet.  I constantly see service advisors rushing through horrible food choices at their desk,  Here is something new Brian, I think managers should be more pro active at getting them away from their desk to rejuvenate and nourish their minds and body for at least 30 minutes out of their 10-12 hour day.  No wonder people burn out in our industry so quickly.

Thanks for taking the time for reading my post and I appreciate your point of view. I share your experiences of youth as I'm 57 now and the years are passing fast. What I find is my health mainly depends on my ability to keep it simple and consistent and that's what I try to bring out in my report.
Take care

Ok Lee, I read it.  Excellent points, but I think even you'd agree that you probably didn't get into any material that hasn't already been covered, in depth, by thousands of hours of TV commercials, endorsement, interviews on the subject, etc.  But honestly, how could you in three paragraphs?

As a lifelong observation of people who "get into their bodies," it seems that when they get to the point when they truly believe they look "hot," they inevitably end up falling in love with themselves.  As a bodybuilder, I'm sure you're aware of that particular behavior.  Consequentially, I long ago decided not to participate in any extension of my "youthful self."  (You know, that approximately 17 to 55 years of age when you seem to have plenty of everything...vitality, endurance, etc., etc.)  Now, in the shape I'm in, there isn't a snowball's chance in hell I'll ever find myself embracing me or whispering sweet nothings in my own ear.   But believe me, I have no regrets.  When I needed it, it was there-in spades, and I didn't squander it on myself, I "shared" it with as many as I could.  

Fortunately for me, my wife (#3, thirteen years my junior but we've been married 28 years) has an "expansive view" of the "for better or for worse" clause.  I'm extremely close to my seventies, and regardless of the BS being ladled out about how great getting older can be, if you haven't lived the kind of life where you believe you haven't missed anything, you've definitely missed the boat.  Everything worth doing is better when you're young!  Well, damned near everything.  Thanks for the post!
