Awake the Beast

To Beast or Not to Beast One of the hardest challenges in life is practicing self-discipline. We spend our whole day trying not to “wake the beast” when it comes to controlling our desires and emotions, like fear and anger. Yet, you go to the gym and everyone is talking about the “Beast” and going “Beast Mode”.

FIT TIP: Sleep More, Lose More Weight

to tired to exercise

One of the biggest complaints people have, and biggest excuses they don’t go to the gym, is they are just too tired. They have no energy. They have no motivation. They are too tired to wake up earlier and workout before work, or they are too tired to go to the gym after work. Sleep …

Success Never Looks Back

Can I just be honest with you here? Can I just talk real talk, real life junk? Don’t we ALL have “junk” to deal with? The older I get (oops! did I just call myself old?! lol). I mean the more mature I am (har har!), the more I realize even the greatest most solid …

Good Choice, Bad Choice, It’s Your Choice

Do You Use Exercise for Damage Control?

damage control

Think how much further you’d be if you didn’t eat something you shouldn’t eat, with the mindset of either “I worked hard today in the gym” or “I’ll just do an extra cardio tomorrow”. Sadly, if you workout at all, you’ve done this before – we ALL do! Think about what we are really doing. …

Refuse To Be Discouraged


Whether we are talking about our body, our career, our Christian walk, our marriage or any other “project” or goal we are working to improve or excel in. Anyone who wants to really improve will come to the realization they still have so much room for improvement – and that can easily get you discouraged …

Scripture of the Day: “For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11 Most people, at some point and …
