More Critical Reasons To EXERCISE!

Aloha all,


And if this is your first visit to Get Fit With John Leary III, I hope you’ll become a regular reader!

A few weeks ago, we took a look at a few reasons why regular exercise is so good for you….today, we’re going to take a deeper look.



Did you know that regular exercise helps maintain YOUR immune functioning? Your immune system is what protects you from infection and other chemical toxins! The immune system also plays a role in maintaining a healthy response to STRESS!

For many years, scientists talked about “immune senescence” as an inevitable result of aging...we now know that the studies showing these inevitable declines were conducted on people WHO DID NOT EXERCISE!

Even short-term exercise programs can reverse some of the deleterious effects of aging on this sensitive, complex & crucial regulatory system which controls so much of your EVERYDAY HEALTH!

Reduces body fat: Your BMI…or Body Mass Index…provides an approximate measure of your overall metabolic status. If YOU are in the overweight to obese categoriy now, a regular program of aerobic exercise can bring your BMI down to normal levels mainly by swapping the fat for the fat-free tissues in your body.

The GOOD NEWS is that the more you exercise, the more you are able to work off your body fat because muscle “burns off” more calories, effectively speeding up your metabolism!



So…as you can see, that’s just a few MORE reasons YOU need to be exercising on a REGULAR basis! There are many, MANY more and we will be covering them in a post right here on this blog NEXT week!

Please stop by again SOON as we are adding lots of videos to our exercise video library as well as posting alot more information on why YOU need to KEEP exercising and why you need to hire ME as your personal trainer.


Top 5 Reasons Why You NEED A Personal Trainer!

Aloha all,

Thanks for stopping by Get Fit With John Leary III…

Today we’re going to look at the top 5 reasons to hire a certified personal trainer…and in this case, that would be yours truly!

To avoid injury: if you are new to exercise or find that some movements are painful, it’s worth hiring a trainer to make sure you are moving in a safe & effective way. Taking the time to learn the proper exercise technique will improve your results & prevent annoying, unnecessary injuries.

Motivation: having a trainer by your side can provide the encouragement, energy and motivation you need to jump-start your routine! A trainer will also help you set GOALS create a plan to accomplish them & celebrate the day you reach them!

Consistency: do you find it hard to stick with a program or habit? A trainer will hold you accountable and help you to overcome all the excuses you might use to avoid your commitment to exercise. It’s a lot harder to skip going to the gym when you know YOUR TRAINER is waiting for you!

Training with medical conditions: exercise is beneficial for preventing or managing many common chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease & hypertension. However, exercising WITH a medical condition requires additional precautions. A knowledgeable trainer with experience training clients with chronic medical conditions can design a program that ENSURES YOUR SAFETY & provides a positive exercise experience!

And finally…FUN! Believe it or not, exercise can be enjoyable! A savvy personal trainer can make exercise both effective and fun. Simply working with a trainer who you like & respect can be enough to provide YOU with more enjoyment and gratification from your workouts!

So I hope you were able to relate to this post…and I hope that if you live on the Island of Oahu in beautiful Hawaii, you will contact me to schedule your first session! You can pay for your session(s) by going to the payment button on this blog’s home page and/or contact me at (808)275-7805 or by email at john@getfitwithjohnleary3rd.com

Remember…..I offer a SATISFACTION GUARANTEE….if you’re not happy with your results, YOU PAY NOTHING!

Please stop by again soon…we’ll be taking a look at more reasons why YOU need to exercise on a regular basis!



Need Some Reasons To Start Exercising?

Aloha all,

Thanks for checking out Get Fit With John Leary III….if you’re returning, thanks so much for coming back! I hope you will return regularly as I create content on health, fitness and personal training – I promise to make it worth your time!

Did you know that exercising regularly builds aerobic power? Ordinarily, folks lose about 1 percent a year of their aerobic power….or 10% per decade! (Your aerobic capacity is your body’s ability to work at maximum capacity by getting oxygen from the air to your body’s tissues). By the time you’re 50 years old, you’ve LOST 50% of your aerobic capacity – UNLESS YOU EXERCISE!



Exercise also helps in reducing your blood pressure, in part, by attacking the plaque in your arteries. As the arteries widen, the blood flows more freely, and your blood pressure eventually begins to drop! Hypertension also decreases as a result of exercise because your heart, a muscle, is getting a workout. The stronger your heart becomes, the greater its’ ability to pump blood thru the arteries, which also helps to reduce blood pressure!

The last reason we’ll cover today is the fact that exercise LOWERS TYPE II DIABETES RISK! You’ve probably read that the increase in the prevalence of Type II diabetes is becoming a WORLD-WIDE HEALTH CRISIS! The complications of adult-onset Type II diabetes poses a serious risk to your physical well-being! By engaging in regular physical exercise, you improve your body’s ability to metabolize glucose, the key to preventing this disease!



So…that’s just THREE reasons that I’ve covered today…and you have to admit, all three are CRITICAL to good health! Please stop by again soon to read more on the MANY REASONS YOU NEED EXERCISE ON A REGULAR BASIS!

Next post will cover…in detail…why YOU need to hire me as YOUR personal trainer. If I’ve convinced you already, please give me a call/text at (808)275-7805 or drop me an email at: john@getfitwithjohnleary3rd.com

We can get started as soon as this week!

P.S. The next post will be on the HEALTH EPIDEMIC that is happening in the USA right now and why YOU need to be HEALTHY and FIT!


Get Fit With John Leary III Is Now LIVE!

Aloha all,

Just a quick introduction here with a lot more to come shortly…

I received my first barbell, dumbbell and weight set when I was 13 years old…from my parents as a Christmas present. It was  a love thing that happened almost over night. I was hooked on getting strong and lean and I loved the way I felt after working out!

That little 110 lb. set took me to places a young teenager rarely gets to go…for example, a part-time job working with men at age 14. Wrestling champ of my school at age 15 in the 165 lb. weight class. Immediate attention from the football, wrestling and track & field coaches as a freshman in high school!

It was almost like MAGIC! All I had to do was workout with the weights, stretch for 10-15 minutes/day, stay humble and watch many doors open because I was built like a man by age 15!

Fast-forward to today…at age 66, I am still doing the same thing. My health is excellent, I eat what I like..in moderation….and am NOW working as a personal trainer on the Island of Oahu in the beautiful State of Hawaii!

If this all sounds too good to be true…or if this sounds like a lifestyle that YOU think you might like to check out, I urge you to contact me ASAP. I provide one-on-one personal training at VERY affordable rates and have a SPECIAL RATE for seniors. I provide transportation from your home or office to the gym for a one hour session and then back to where you came from…all included.

I am certified as a Personal Trainer and also a Senior Fitness Specialist by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and accept clients of all ages. If this sounds like something you would like to discuss further, please give me a call/text at (808)275-7805 or send me an email to john@getfitwithjohnleary3rd.com

And please stop by this blog again….I’ll be posting all kinds of health-related articles and videos here regularly…

Thanks for stopping by!
