I’m a fan of minimalism.
Whether it’s being a minimalist when it comes to material possessions, having a website without ads or sidebars to put the entire focus on the articles, and definitely when it comes to building and sustaining a health and fitness regimen – I’m all about minimalism and keeping things simple.
Minimalism, in regards to fitness, allows you to keep things simple because you’ll only focus on the few, important things that truly matter and provide the majority of the results.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,” as Leonardo da Vinci said.

Here are four reasons why you should simplify your health and fitness regimen.
1) Less stress. Your health and fitness regimen should enhance your life. It’s something that should REDUCE stress, and not increase it.
When you keep things simple you won’t be overwhelmed or stressed out as is common when trying to revolve your life around a rigid diet and complicated routine.
