Fitness: For Better or For Worse

What is your relationship with fitness? Is it like marriage or an unstable love affair? Do you love it when it’s easy and convenient or are you committed to it no matter what? I think most people treat fitness like a on again off again boyfriend. When you get down and lonely, you run to your …

You Can Suck – and Still Succeed

fitness failure

I apologize in advance for using such an informal edgy title, but “stink” didn’t cut it – and it didn’t rhyme with success. LOL As I was searching for synonyms for “suck”, I discovered where the word came from. Jazz musicians would compliment a horn player by saying “wow, he can really blow!” Since I play trumpet, …

Fitness Motivation: Ordinary People Do the Extraordinary

When we see photos of fitness competitors and professional athletes, it can be very motivating for some people – but very discouraging for others. It’s easy to set ourselves apart from the professionals, or from people we think we can’t relate to, and think to ourselves “I could never do that”.  But, when I see someone with my …

Monday Motivation: Seek and You Will Find

One of the biggest obstacles I come across most is people not being honest with themselves. Cients often try to convince me of how healthy they eat and how they are doing everything right but they just can’t lose weight. They think they are just an exception to the rule. In all my years in the fitness …

What’s Your Next Step?

One Step At A Time

Sometimes we can get SO focused on the goal, we get PARALYZED with being overwhelmed. Whether we are thinking about how much further to go or how impossible the journey seems, it doesn’t change what we could do to today by just doing what we can. Sometimes, our goal isn’t even being thinner, fitter, stronger or faster. …

JAN 16: Picture The Future You

If you live in the now  – constantly thinking about how you feel now, what you want to eat now or what you want to do now, you will likely do what seems to be most beneficial at the time. Eating chips and guac sounds fun, sleeping in seems wonderful – until you realize how much it will …

JAN 13: What Are You Still Doing Wrong?

Do you like to push the limits? I have to admit, I’m pretty conservative. If there is a sign that says “No U-Turn”, I don’t do a U-Turn. I don’t want to get in trouble and don’t like the stress that goes with breaking rules (and hoping you don’t get caught). With that said, I …

JAN 11: Ready to Fail, Committed to Succeed

If we can focus on progress more than perfection, we will be way ahead by the end of the year. I don’t know about you, but I’m super hard on myself. If I can do something perfect, I get discouraged easily. That’s ridiculous! If I can’t do something just right, I need to keep working …

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”. We …
