Readiness for Change Questionnaires
One of the most important things you can do to change your lifestyle for the better is this: understand your readiness for change. In other words, although you might want to be in great shape, there's a difference between wanting it and being ready to do the work necessary to improve your body composition, health, and physical performance.

Simply answer the questions to follow by selecting the response most appropriate to your situation. Once you've completed all the questions, your score will be calculated, and we'll discuss the results.

1. Do you look in the mirror and get frustrated, upset, or humiliated because of how your body looks? *
2. When you feel run down and tired, do you blame these feelings on "getting older" or do you blame them on your lifestyle habits? *
3. Are you taking any medications for heart disease, high blood pressure, or type II diabetes that you didn't have to take when you were younger? *
4. How do you explain the fact that you're in worse shape than when you were younger, but haven't changed your habits at all? *
5. If you don't have anyone to exercise with regularly, are you willing to look for a physical activity partner? *
6. Are you willing to join a gym today? *
7. If someone told you that you'd need to throw away ( or donate) all foods in your cupboard today and go shopping for different foods, foods more appropriate to your goal, would you do it? *

11. Are you ready to spend less time with people who offer little or no social support to your goals while spending more time with those who do offer support? *
12. Can you accept responsibility for the way your body is today and understand that, while your old habits don't make you a bad person, they still need to be changed? *
13. If a friend or loved one suggest that you don't have what it takes to get into great shape because you've failed before or for some other reason, what will be your response? *
14. Are you willing to wake up in the morning a bit earlier and stay up a night a bit later to accomplish your goals? *
