Small Steps Start the Journey

Michael Kruger, This Podcast Burns Fat, podcast

Working Out Doesn’t Take as Long as You Think it Does

More Muscle, Better Weight Loss


Michael Krug Notable Quotes

“If you start now, and you just start with really small things, like instead of getting a sugar-filled latte, just get a black coffee, or if it’s just starting with drinking water first thing every day, or just getting out for a ten-minute walk over lunch rather than answering that extra email, the small little habits and the small little things you do will compound on top of each other. That’s the biggest thing I can tell anyone—start small.”
Michael Krug

“It all starts in the belief that you can start to make changes that you want to make. And then just take small actions to get towards that every day. It’s always worth it.”
                                                – Michael Krug
