I believe that health is the most important tool you have in your quest to win – to win at what matters most to you.

Hence my tagline, “when you’re healthy, you can win!

But health is more than just the absence of disease.

And it’s more than just not being sick.

Healthy to win” is about being at your very best – OPTIMALLY healthy – high-performance healthy.

How do you achieve that?

By knowing what aspects of your health are not optimal and working to improve them, one step at a time.

That’s why I developed the Optimal Men’s Health Quiz. It is a tool to help you identify which ONE aspect of your health you would most benefit from working on first – what is your next best step to getting healthier and closer to winning.

I call the different health categories you can work on Impact Factors.

If you want to improve your health, you need to know what next step will give you the biggest bang for your buck. Should you exercise more or differently? Should you cut wheat out from your diet or do intermittent fasting or keto? Should you get special glasses to filter out blue light? Should you start meditating? You can’t do it all, at least not at once. So where to start?!

For every man, the one next best step will be different – it depends on your goals (your WIN) and what aspect of health (which impact factor) is most affecting your ability to win.

I encourage you to figure out what your one next best step is – and to take that leap.

If you need help figuring out that next best step, take my Optimal Men’s Health Quiz to give you a roadmap – to easily identify your weak link – the impact factor that is most likely keeping your health and your performance from being optimal.

However you approach it, make a move to being healthier, and you will be heading toward a win. Good luck! And feel free to send me your feedback on the quiz at myles@drspar.com.
