You Can’t Fake Real Passion

You Can’t Fake Real Passion I have been working out to Beachbody products for over 3 years now so I pretty much have a routine and there are not a lot of surprises.   But I never expected what has been happening at the Gooburner Gym over the past two months. My neighbor Tim Rundle decided to do P90X to get his health back so I am...

Creatures of Habit

Creatures of Habit We all have our routines, our habits, the things that we do every day.  Most of them you do not even think about, such as “brushing your teeth”, “taking a shower”, “fixing your hair”.  These are things that you do every day no matter what is going on and you do not even give them a second...

Reignite Your Passion

Reignite Your Passion I have been working out, getting healthy, and helping people do the same for several years now.  I had fallen into a routine of doing the things I liked to do which consisted mainly of lifting weights a lot, posting on my website, and working out with my family. I started to questioned why I was not...

Winners Do It

Winners Do It This is going to be a motivational article as I read a lot about how people are struggling and wondering why they are not achieving their goals.

Get It in Gear

Get It in Gear Okay so now the holidays are over and as we all do in America it is time to “promise” that we are going to get into better shape and lose weight.  It is a national ritual and if you have done like most of us your diet was not the best during the holiday period. Just let me start by saying “let it...

Find Your Island

Fitness is a Choice

Fitness is a Choice I often have wondered why some people struggle so much with their fitness while others seem to follow the same advice and get amazing results.  After helping people for the past three years I believe it all comes down to something as simple as saying that “Fitness is a Choice”. We all look at others;...

Run Like a Kid

Run Like a Kid I have never been a big fan of running.  I think it comes from my being an athlete when I was young and every time you messed up or the team was being punished for not playing well we had to run for what felt like days.

Life in the Fast Lane

Life in the Fast Lane A few weeks ago I wrote an article about how to help take you from the couch to fit in nice easy slow steady steps.  The reason for that was that it seemed that I had a lot of customers “overwhelmed” by all the  changes coming to them at once so I broke it down to help them make progress and stay on...
