Bevan Eyles has worked in the fitness industry for fifteen years.

He's been a competitive Ironman triathlete, runs marathons, he has presented at international fitness conferences and coaches runners of all levels.

Along the way he says he's discovered that health and fitness isn't about a certain exercise, or about being on the latest diet, or about buying equipment that promises fantastic results.

He has concluded it is all about a person's behaviour and figuring out what works for them.

He's written a book called 'The Fitness Attitude' ... about learning to love keeping fit.

Fitness Motivator Bevan Eyles tells Kathryn Ryan you need to commit to building exercise into your life and set realistic goals.
