SAN DIEGO - Jan. 30, 2014 - PRLog -- With each New Year comes a chance for a fresh start and new resolutions. How is your New Year’s resolution going? If you’re like most, despite the best of intentions you’re probably starting to fall off the program already.

Ken Blanchard, Leadership guru and Chief Spiritual Officer of The Ken Blanchard Companies®, has long talked about the difference between being interested in something and being committed to it. As he talks about in his new book Fit at Last (, it requires personal leadership to make a lasting commitment to any aspiration. Coauthored with fitness expert Tim Kearin, Fit at Last follows Ken’s journey to stick to his fitness program using the same leadership concepts of his Situational Leadership® II (SLII®) model that have helped people lead organizations for 35 years.

“A great book for people who know what to do but just don’t follow through. Provides insights to help choose a ‘fitness type’ and how to stay engaged. Good strategies on making a long-term commitment to fitness,” says Madelyn Fernstrom, Diet and Nutrition Editor of TODAY (

Ken and Tim use SLII to set SMART goals—the first skill of a situational leader—to diagnose Ken’s development in each of the six core areas of fitness and match them to the leadership styles needed to get him to the next level in each area. The result was more than thirty pounds lost in a year!

“I’ve been in the fitness industry for more than thirty years, so I know how important it is to keep your body healthy and fit at every age. My hope is that everyone everywhere will realize the transforming effects of a lifelong commitment to health and fitness. I’m so glad Ken has done it—and you can do it, too! Read Fit at Last!”

Denise Austin, fitness guru and author of twelve books, including Side Effect: Skinny.
