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. I also am the type of person who loves to lift weights.  I really enjoy getting in the...

Survivor Meets The Biggest Loser

Survivor Meets The Biggest Loser As I go into my 8th week on Wake Island it has occurred to me that we are going through an experience that is a lot like Survivor the TV show and also some of the same characteristics as The Biggest Loser TV show. We have all been put on a small island with limited resources and have been asked to perform a...

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...

One Bite at a Time

One Bite at a Time So I get the message.  For a lot of you it is just too much change at one time for you to start working out six days a week and to also change all your nutrition habits at the same time.  You feel overwhelmed and you quit shortly after you started because it is just “too much to handle”.  I know...

Lemonade

Lemonade I have always been a “glass half full” kind of guy and tried to find a way to make any situation work to my benefit even if it was a bad one.  Point in case is the situations that my family and I currently find ourselves in. I am deployed overseas for at least two months, my son has just gone off to...

Comfort Zone

Comfort Zone You hear people talk about it all the time, you are in your comfort zone but what does it really mean?  Your comfort zone is that place where we all live in the routine of our lives.  We like doing things that we are familiar with and that way there are no surprises or any chance of something “bad”...

Busy Busy

Busy Busy I hear it all the time. I don’t have time to work out. My schedule is too packed to get in a workout. I’ll start working out when I get back home from travel. Once my kids stop playing sports I’ll have time to work out. My job makes it impossible for me to have the time. You get the idea as I’m...

The Answer

The Answer I get asked all the time about how to stay motivated. Starting P90X / Insanity / Power 90 / etc. is not hard! Staying with it is what’s hard! So many people start strong but fade fast.  Either they cave in to the diet and don’t see results, or they get tired and start to skip workouts, or they let...

It can be your job all of a sudden requires you to travel, your kids’ schedules change as they get older and more involved with after...

Commitment

Commitment I am finding out lately from talking with others and answering questions from team members that there is a real issue with COMMITMENT!  I personally understand the problem as most people can talk about doing something about their fitness, watch infomercials and relate to the people they see and maybe even...

Pre-Workout Supplements

Pre-Workout Supplements “Pre-workout supplements”. I had never heard of them, much less used them, before P90X.  Despite the fact that I have spent many years of my life lifting weights, I never spent much time researching supplements.  Then I finally decided to listened to the advice of my coach and tried Jack3d (a popular...
