On The Road Again

On The Road Again It had been quite awhile since I had to travel and I had gotten pretty set in my daily workout and nutrition routine at home.  I am not counting the family vacation as I expected that to be a “recovery week” but I am away on business for a week and had to re-learn what I had known so well when I was...

Bad Workouts

Bad Workouts It happens to the best of us.  We go out to workout, muster up our “Bring It” attitude, and we just don’t feel it.  We try to stay positive and try to get fired up, but our body is just not cooperating.  So we go through the motions and give it our best, but it just is not working for some reason...

Lean Muscle Mass Rocks

Lean Muscle Mass Rocks I recently went on vacation with my family to the Florida Keys.  We rented a house on the Gulf side and planned on spending a week enjoying the sun and the water.  As I have been doing P90X for over a year and was in the best shape of my life I was a little curious to see what this week would do to me and...

P90X the Cure for Snoring

P90X the Cure for Snoring I had meant to write about this for quite some time as it was something that happened to me that was totally unexpected as part of my 90 day P90X transformation.  The reason it kept slipping my mind was that it did not really affect me (well not as much as it did my wife) so with all the wonderful things...

You Are Stronger Than You Think

You Are Stronger Than You Think I have learned a lot about myself as I continue on this fitness journey and one of the things that continues to amaze me is how far you can push yourself.  You know that feeling that you are done, cannot do one more repetition, and then from somewhere deep inside you somehow do that one more...

Be An Example

Be An Example I am continually amazed at how just being in shape and feeling good inspires people.  You don’t even have to say anything as they “see” the changes in you and admire and wish that they had what you have. My wife lost her aunt to cancer earlier this week and our family drove down to Birmingham for the...

It’s All About The Support

It’s All About The Support As I continue on my fitness journey I am amazed and impressed by the number of people willing to take control of their own health and to try and get in the best shape of their lives.  Even if you start out to “just lose a few pounds” the incredible feeling of getting stronger and feeling better takes a...

Fitness Scams and Misleading Facts

Fitness Scams and Misleading Facts When it comes to our well-being, not much excites like the word miracle.

Benefits of Being in Shape

Benefits of Being in Shape I live in the Huntsville Alabama area and as most people now know we were hit last Wednesday by a storm that produced multiple tornados.  I was one of the lucky ones as my home was not damaged and all I had was a few trees blown down and a lot of branches and tree limbs blown from my trees.  The people...

What Does It Mean To Be Fit?

What Does It Mean To Be Fit? Webster’s tells us that fitness is “the capacity of an organism to survive and transmit its genotype to reproductive offspring as compared to competing organisms”; Dr. Fred Hatfield, in his book Fitness: The Complete Guide, gives us a more layman’s view by defining it as: “Your...

Finished P90X, What Now?

Finished P90X, What Now? I finish up my P90X classes in a few weeks and the question I keep getting is “what do I do after P90X”? This is a very good question as it was one that I asked myself. When I completed P90X I was so pumped with my P90X results. I decided to go and do another round of it, but this time I wanted to get...
