Amit Malhotra, 35, is a high-flying investment banker who loves his gut and all things gourmet. Amit is living the proverbial good life, which includes a loving family, a successful career and a luxurious life – albeit with a paunch.
When a pretty twenty-something calls him ‘uncle’ by mistake, the young corporate honcho is forced to evaluate his lifestyle. As if that weren’t enough, Amit has to face the harsh realities of his fast-paced life when he loses a close friend and colleague to a fatal heart attack in the middle of a conference.
After this shock to his system, the gym-hating, food-binging couch potato realizes that he will have to change his ways before a heart attack claims him too. But will he be able to accomplish this steep climb?
Change Me captures in detail a common man’s inspiring journey towards holistic fitness with the help of a life coach. Join Amit as he discovers his true being – his mind, body and spirit – and marches towards a healthy, fulfilling future.
Jasmin Waldmann is a renowned life coach and fitness expert. She is the inventor of Pilardio®, a concept that combines Pilates and Cardio, and the developer of JaWa Diet.
The writing style of “Change Me” is quite unique. It preaches the concept of personal development by taking charge of your life through a fictional story. Sometimes it is okay not to be able to do it alone.. at that times you should take help from outside. In today’s times the concept of Life Coaching has come up and is becoming popular by the day.
Complete sustainable control combines the four pillars of Diet, Fitness Training, Life Coaching and Meditation. These four are usually seen as separate pillars but are actually interconnected. These being seen as separate leads to the results achieved from either to be short-lived as the root causes barely ever get fixed. It is true when you really think about it!!
I have always believed that “Living is an Art” and totally stand by it! In order to live life well, one must find balance and control whilst taking care of one’s happiness. You can only keep everyone around you happy if you are content.. else dissatisfaction is bound to crop up at one point. Small changes in your life can lead to big results. Changes in eating habits, thought, handling people, exercising, composing thoughts, increasing family time, anything.. no change for the better is too small.. it always has bigger outcomes.
“Change Me” focuses too much on the importance of a life coach. While it is great to see someone getting their life in track using the concepts of life coaching, this book often felt like a promotion of the author’s classes. However, the key takeaway from the book – the concept and application in one’s own life must not get lost.
What is the one change you wish to make to your life/habits immediately?
