Fitness coaches say the time it takes to get to a healthy weight and fitness level is just minutes a day. And with a dose of determination you can do it right inside your house. Anytime is a good time to start working out and you can even do it in the comfort of your own home. It takes just a few feet of room, a DVD player and a simple set of workout equipment.
"All the equipment that I use on a daily basis to work out are dumbbells, medicine balls, stability ball, and a yoga mat," said Woodard.
Woodard adopted an at home DVD workout system called P90x and at the age of forty he says feels better than ever before.
"Even going back to my 20's I cant remember getting up in the morning and just being ready to go work out and being ready to tackle the day and those energy levels stay consistent throughout," said Woodard.
Woodard says at home programs like these require 10 to forty minutes a day and a determined mind set.
"It's all about consistency you can't start the program and give up half way and expect to see results," encourages Woodard. "You've just got to stick with it."
Woodard says its not only important to be consistent in your workouts but in your diet as well. Meal replacement shakes have become a routine part of his diet along with cutting out late night carbohydrates and sugars.
"It's a meal replacement system its got like seventy different ingredients and its completely all natural," said Woodard.
Woodard admits this regimen is tough, but says the reward is worth it.
"You get to look in the mirror and be happy," said Woodard. "You've set your goals and if you've achieved them you get to kind of sit back and be happy about what you've done for yourself."
Fitness coaches encourage don't get down before you start. A fitness plan can be made to accommodate your schedule and fitness level.
