  • 6 Snack Hacks for Weight-Loss Success

    We’re a society of snackers, using quick grab-and-go bites to get us through long, hectic days. For example, 1 in 6 adults gets more than 40% of their daily calories from snacks alone. Serving as meal replacements and filling the gaps in our days when there isn’t enough time to cook, snacks help curb appetite, boost energy and possibly control weight by sustaining our metabolism throughout the day. If done right, a healthy snack or two can prevent you from overeating during your next meal. However, we often snack to satisfy a craving, like those for sugar, salt or chocolate . But with the right approach, you can use snacks as a tool to achieve your weight-loss goals. Try ....

  • Path to Success

    We are into our third month of 2017 and most of the people that have made New Year's resolutions, have given up on them. Of the people that make resolutions, only 8% actually follow through with them and reach their goals. This is an alarming stat for people who want to change their bodies. This will turn into a vicious cycle for the rest of your life if you make a goal and continue to fail on it each year. There are a few things that will help you in reaching your goals and are listed below: Simple

  • We Will All Gain Unwanted Weight Unless...

    Some people are going to tell me that these posts are getting redundant. I would tell those people the annual blood sugar increase that we see in the United States around around this time every year gets redundant. Not to mention the inevitable health problems that stem from it. Every year we know its coming, but we do nothing about it. The numbers don't lie. Heart disease and diabetes are among the top 8 leading causes of death in the United States. In 2015 29.1 million Americans had diabetes, and 76% of those people will die from it. Every year 610,00 Americans die from heart disease. This is problem that grows every year. And the biggest issue, these are completely and utterly ....

  • The Secret To Beating Holiday Weight Gain REVEALED!

    Ok everyone, this year is going to be different for all of us. This year we are going to approach the holidays differently. This year we are going to prevent the problem before it starts. We are not going to wait until the holidays take over and wait until we've put on "x" pounds and we feel like crap before we do something about it. Just think how much further you could be come Spring time if we start doing now what most of us start doing after the fact. We have seen it time and time again as fitness professionals. To be honest, writing this email is a poor business decision. Usually the end of the holidays means its time to make some money as a personal trainer, and most cash in on ....

Well it isn't your fault, this is human nature. And the odds are against us these days. With so much information out there on the internet and social media there is just no way to find yourself the information you need on the internet in a timely manner.

  • Summer Is Here, Don't Get Left Behind!!!

  • What Options Do We Have?

    With all of the information there is out on the internet these days, where can we look to get the information we NEED and avoid the information we DON'T NEED? Well, we basically have two options. Option 1) Enroll yourself in a kinesiology program at a strong, well known university and spend upwards of $50,000 (often much much more) and earn a bachelor's or better in exercise science. Problem is, this is going to take you years and years and more money than I am sure you would like to spend. Option 2) Pay someone who has the previously mentioned credentials as well as a strong PT certification and background in nutrition to do all of the thinking for you. Not to mention save you ....

  • It's A Journey, Not A Destination

    Too often in the fitness industry we hearpeople talking about weight loss, or any fitness goal for that matter, like there is a final destination in the future. This means that after putting all of the hard work into changing habits and working towards the goal that they had committed themselves to, they still had plans to go back to the way that they started in terms of their habits and hope to maintain what they had earned. My friends, this is just not how it works. Health and fitness is not a diet, it is not a quick fix, it is not a period of time. Health and fitness refers to changing your lifestyle to promote health and quality of life, and there is nothing temporary about those ....

  • Stick To A Schedule

    Earlier this week I was having a talk with a prior client of mine who had worked their butt for 6 months while on their program with me. They had reached their goal and we felt they they were at a point where they had learned a lot about themselves, exercise, nutrition, and the type of lifestyle that healthy living entails. However as I was talking with them we got to the topic whether or not they had maintained their results. While they did not completely rebound, they had started to head back the other direction. After digging a little deeper we realized that the issue was not with the nutrition or food intake side of things, it was sticking to a regular workout regimen. It seemed ....

  • Find A Training Partner NOW

    The holidays are approaching, and we all know what that can do to our eating and exercise habits. How many times have you yourself of heard about others who have chalked the year up as a loss and told themselves, "I'll just start off right in the new year." I have heard it all too many times and frankly, I thought it was time to try and do something about it. Here's what I mean.. I understand that the holidays also bring with them some increased spending which can tighten the budget and make it hard to invest in other things, including our health and fitness. So I decided to cut our personal training prices in half for the remainder of the year. But there is a catch, you need to find a ....

And now you are thinking that it is time to quit and explore other options. I am here to tell you that you are thinking the wrong way about all of this. Why don't we shift our thinking and say to ourselves, "well, nothing worth having was ever easy or was every achieved without a little adversity.

  • What To Do When You Injure Yourself

    Injuries are something that can make it harder for us to get close to our health and fitness goals, and I am sure that all of us have dealt with an injury from sports or exercise at some point. So, what are some of the things that we can do when we are injured to stay on track and keep moving in the right direction. I learned very early on when I started making it a priority to get regular exercise that when we are injured we never quit and we never train through things, we train around things. This way we can stay in the gym and not have to really take any time off from exercise at all. Let's say you pull a muscle in your quad, most people would use that as an excuse to sit on the ....

  • You CAN exercise on painful joints

    Research has shown that exercise can help reduce arthritis pain and improve range of motion, and it’s now considered an essential part of arthritis management. This is a far cry from days past, when people with arthritis were warned to not exercise to avoid further damage to joints. Doctors now know that, in addition to all its heart health benefits, regular exercise can:
    Reduce inflammation, stiffness, and joint pain

    In the US today Diabetes and Heart Disease are among the leading causes of death. Heart Disease being the leading cause of death among Americans. The problem that I have with this is that more often than not Diabetes and Heart Disease are completely under our control and in most cases are self induced conditions due to our poor diet and lack of physical activity. Our government is stuck on giving people health insurance and medication to solve these problems when really all they need to do is give people free personal trainers and free nutritional counseling.

  • Change Your Mind-Change Your Body

    Fad diets annoy the crap out of me because they are based on fake science and they completely mess with your mind. They make you skinny, for a while. Then they make you fat, then skinny, then fat again. It’s a deeply unhealthy pattern and the eternal dieter, forever carrying unwanted extra pounds, is the only loser – except they lose money instead of fat and get trapped in a vicious cycle of unhealthy thinking. Fad diets make you feel guilty, and ultimately like a failure. They are not realistic because they are unsustainable – after all it’s impossible to maintain a rigid practice that offers no enjoyment. They present you with a list of “haves” and “have nots” and remove ....
