ROCHESTER, Minn. — Successful fitness and eating plans have to be safe, sustainable and fun. Otherwise, you might not stick with them long term.

"Exercise and eating in a healthful way shouldn't be overwhelming or like a punishment," says Leah Sicher Hearle, a sports medicine specialist. "This is about improving your life and enhancing your life. Adding to it."

Sicher Hearle and her friend Renata Newcomb keep each other moving in the right direction by walking three mornings a week. On three other days, they work out on their own. And they always take one day off to do whatever they want.

One month ago, Sicher Hearle guided Newcomb through a seven-step movement assessment. Results inspired Newcomb to work on strength and flexibility.

Watch or listen to the Goal Getters Project on the"Health Fusion" podcast as we do a one-month, post assessment check in.
