Being asked to not smoke, eat well, go to bed at a reasonable hour, and go to the gym for a couple hours in the morning isn't exactly a dreadful or terribly demanding existance.
Most people do all those things, save spending mulitple hours at the gym, but the reason they don't do that is usually because they have to go to work for 8-10 hours a day.
