If you asked a group of 100 people, all of whom wanted to make exercise-related changes, to say what they understood by the term ‘motivation to exercise’, I’m sure most of them would explain it pretty well. However if you asked the same group to ACTUALLY motivate themselves to exercise, the outcome would be much different. What you may find is that many of the group wouldn't even try. Some may manage to motivate themselves for a while, and only a small few would manage to maintain their motivation over time.
So why is it then that even though the whole group WANTED TO EXERCISE, only a minority would manage to start and stick with an exercise programme?
Summary: A focus on how we change as individuals, combined with an in-depth look at motivation to exercise, is what makes this book different and is what separates it from 99% of other available material on this subject. If you have ever asked yourself why you can’t stick with an exercise programme even though you really want to, or why after starting so well you find yourself quitting, then this book is for you.

A 27 year old mother of two young children looks at herself in the mirror and smiles. Over the past year she has dramatically transformed her physical appearance after having tried and failed multiple times in the past. She isn't worried about going back to how she used to look because this time it’s different. She has experienced a fundamental shift in the way she thinks about and reacts to change.
A recently married 30 year old retail manager feels that he is finally achieving the physique he’s always wanted. More importantly he is doing it in a way that fits with his lifestyle and for the first time in a long time he can see light at the end of the tunnel.
A 45 year old nurse and mother of two recently diagnosed with diabetes, beams as the doctor discusses her positive test results. Previously overweight, tired and confused about how to get out of a lifelong rut, she now feels empowered and in control of her health and fitness.
What do all of these people have in common? They succeeded in motivating themselves to exercise the ‘right way’ by learning how to effectively build, strengthen and maintain their motivation to exercise.
They succeeded by ‘exercising change’.
In Exercise Change – Build, Strengthen and Maintain Motivation to Exercise, change expert Matt Williams takes us on an introspective journey that compels us to challenge our thinking and behaviour around making exercise related changes. With an ability to translate complex psychological theories into practical and insightful narratives, Williams brings to life a whole new understanding of exercise motivation through the introduction of a new model of change, the Exercise Motivation Change Cycle or EMCC.
Along the way we learn why some people struggle to make exercise related changes, despite years of trying, while others seem to have a remarkable ability to start and stick with an exercise programme on their first attempt.
We delve into the minds of behaviour change experts as well as everyday people who have accomplished extraordinary things to explore exactly how to make and maintain exercise related changes.
We discover how the right habits and mind-set were crucial to the success of nine time Coast to Coast winner Steve Gurney, NABBA Junior World Champion Kagan Orton and NZ cricketer Andrew Ellis. We go inside the minds of medical professionals, coaches, and martial artists and see how a well-rounded understanding of motivation and change can mean the difference between wanting to do something and actually doing it.
At its core, Exercise Change contains a refreshingly simple and empowering message: The key to exercising regularly, getting fit, losing weight, and improving health is understanding change.
Change doesn't have to be intimidating. As Matt Williams shows, by harnessing much of what you probably already know and are capable of doing, we can transform our bodies, our minds, and our lives.
