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...

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...

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...

I Wish

I Wish “I Wish, I Wish, I Wish”; I hear this all the time from people when we are talking about getting into shape.  I Wish I had a six pack, I Wish I could just lose 10 pounds, I Wish I was in better shape. It is easy to talk about what you want and to wish for things, but quite another thing to have to earn...

Quit Your Crying

Quit Your Crying We all fall into ruts.  I have had great success with P90X and have even gone so far as to teach it to others as the one “leading” the workouts.  However after achieving a certain level of fitness I started to explore other areas such as the One on Ones and Insanity to keep pushing myself and my...

Keep Your Core Tight?

Keep Your Core Tight? You hear it over and over again from both Tony Horton and Shaun T.  Keep your core tight, but what does that really mean? Let’s face it when you first start out doing the exercises you are trying to learn the moves, trying to do them with intensity, trying not to bonk or burn yourself out, and trying to...

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...

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...

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...
