What You Can When You Can – The Book

Every statistic we have about Americans and our health proves that no matter how good our intentions are, we are failing to change the habits that undermine our well-being. Who has the time, the willpower, the resources to do all the nutritious eating, muscle building, restful sleeping, and work-life balancing?


You have the power to make healthier living easy and exciting, just by adopting one simple mantra:

“What you can when you can.”

It’s all you need.

What You Can When You Can (#wycwyc) is a book, a movement, a mindset, and a lifestyle—one that harnesses the power of small steps to let you achieve your health and fitness goals on YOUR terms. The #wycwyc (pronounced “wickwick”) philosophy applies to anything and everything that contributes to a healthy, happy life: nutrition, exercise, physical and mental rejuvenation, and so much more.
