Monday Motivation: It’s Time To Refocus

Are You Near Sighted? What if every decision you made was not based on how you feel now, but how you would feel later? I believe too many of us approach our life with a near sighted view. We only make decisions based on what we can see up close, because everything far away is …

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 …

JAN 22: 10 Tips to Stop the Never-Ending Diet

Committed – 7 Days A Week One of the hardest parts about dieting is sticking to your diet 7 days a week. Anyone can diet for a few days in a row, but to diet over the weekend? That’s a challenge. Don’t erase all your hard work in the gym in one bad day over the …

JAN 3: Take Control in 2016

One of the biggest problems Americans have is we lack self-control. We allow our feelings to control us instead of us working harder to control our feelings. Some people wake up and just decide they don’t feel like going to work, even though they are in debt up to their eyeballs. People get divorced because they …

How to Have a Wiser, Healthier, Happier 2016

Why do many New Year’s Resolutions fade away? I believe it’s because they are based on emotion. We get emotional after the holidays. We “feel” fat. We spent too much money. We didn’t do everything we should, see everyone we could. We reflect on the year and realize another year has passed and we didn’t …

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”.
