  • 5 Steps to Quit Proof Your Goals and Achieve Them

    "The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak." Do you find yourself lacking motivation or drive? Or maybe you have it for a few days, but then something comes up and completely throws you off your routine? I can relate to the frustration of what feels like starting over again.. and again... and again. The truth is it doesn't have to be this way. You can stay consistent, you can commit, and you can hit your goals. The best part? You don't have to rely on motivation. This is important because let's be honest- motivation is and always will be fleeting. There is a better way, and I've figured it out. Here are the 5 Steps to Quit Proof Your ....

  • My Story and My WHY

    I grew up with family members doing drugs going in and out of rehab. I had older brothers (who I looked up to) fighting each other and going to jail. My parents seemed to only want to be in each other’s lives to support their vices – gambling, smoking, and drinking. I’m not telling you this seeking empathy or sympathy; I simply want to put into context what I was surrounded by my entire life growing up. Luckily, I played all the sports. I had no idea at the time how impactful my time with sports was, simply because it removed me from the toxic environment at home. By the time I was in Jr. High, I wouldn’t get home until 6:00 or 7:00 at night, and over the ....

  • This weekend was uncomfortable...

    This past weekend I traveled to Utah for a conference, and I want to take a minute to explain two of the most important things I learned (or was reminded of). First, I want to put a few things into context. In every industry there’s always several annual events, conferences, meetings, etc. that you can attend. What I’ve found is that (and we’re all guilty of this) we find ourselves attending the same ones over and over for years on end. I think this happens because we get familiar and comfortable with the crowd we see every year, and we seem to learn something and have a good time, so why change it? I get it, and there’s still value in that. I’m not ....

  • Get Moving: Newton's Law Applied to Health and Wellness

    We’ve all heard it before: “It doesn’t matter what you do, just get moving.” But how does one actually go about doing this? It turns out that Newton’s law can be applied in this situation. An object at rest stays at rest — an object in motion stays in motion. In other words, the key is to just get started. Once you do, you’ll build momentum, build a habit and keep going with it. Let’s dive into why you don’t have to exercise for two hours every day to be healthy and how you are much better off doing a little bit every day rather than everything all at once. The Myth of Motivation We tend to think that if we work hard enough, we ....

  • Finding Purpose to Overcome Adversity

    I’m not going to lie to you. The last 10 years have been a WILD rollercoaster ride. There have been a million-and-one reasons for Kate and I to pack it up and say “at least we tried.” If I told you all the details over the last 10 years, you’d be wondering how we were able to get through it. There is only one answer, and that answer is purpose. Kate and I knew that our purpose in life was to create a space where people feel welcome to start taking control of their health and their lives. We believe there is nothing more important than your health and that we could help a lot of people, so it didn’t matter what obstacle was thrown at us. We were going to ....

  • Change Your Habits to Change Your Life

    It's no secret that so many of us want to change our lives, but struggle with actually doing it. We want to be healthier and stronger, lose weight, or just feel better, yet it never seems to happen. The answer lies within our habits; if we can focus on changing them, we can change our lives for the better. Let's take a look at how you can make this happen. Start With Why Before you can begin making any changes in your life, you need to make sure you have figured out why this is important to you. You cannot expect lasting results if your reasons aren't clear and significant enough for you to stay motivated and committed when things get tough or boring. Spend some time getting ....

  • From my dad's deathbed: what I learned about life

    Holding my dad’s hand as he took his final breath was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. Equally as hard was the year and a half leading up to that point, as my dad suffered through everything that comes along with stage 4 lung cancer. It was extremely difficult to watch someone you love go through hell and not be able to do anything about it. Here’s the brutally honest truth though: My dad was in the position he was in because he didn’t take care of himself. He smoked multiple packs of cigarettes a day, drank every day, and had poor hygiene. I bet you can guess how often he exercised. He ended up where he was because of his daily actions. As much ....

Why Protein Helps with Weight Loss Protein is essential for muscle growth, repair, and maintenance.

  • What You Need to Know About Regulations in the Fitness Industry

    Did you know there aren’t any regulations in the fitness industry? That’s right--there are no licenses required to become a personal trainer or even open a gym. This means there are a lot of uneducated personal trainers out there, and it can be scary to think that your health is in their hands. However, it’s important to understand why this is the case, so let’s delve into it further. Why There Are No Laws or Institutions Requiring Licenses for Fitness Professionals The main reason for this lack of regulation is that businesses such as gyms or personal training studios are not governed by professional associations like doctors or lawyers are. The ....

  • How I Learned to Love Being Organized

    Growing up, I was the definition of disorganized. My closet was a disaster, my desk was always cluttered, and I had no idea what I needed for school from one day to the next. It felt like my entire life was in chaos , and it seemed like nothing could help. That is until my wife Kate stepped in with her organizational skills and showed me how being organized can make your life so much better. What Kate taught me is that if you don't take the time to get organized now, it will be much harder down the road. If you're not prepared, there's no way you'll be successful in any area of your life- whether it's fitness, nutrition, business or relationships. And with that realization came a ....
