  • Mindset Hack

    It’s extremely important to understand something when it comes to your training. You are very rarely going to have a “perfect” training session. In order to have the “perfect” training session, so many things have to go right. You need the right amount of sleep, you need to have eaten well that day, your stress levels have to be under control, your body has to feel good, you need to be motivated, the list goes on and on. The point here is there are so many external factors that we deal with daily that take energy from us, like it or not. This will impact the energy you have for your training sessions, so it’s important to have a full ....

  • How to fight through adversity (and get better from it)

    I had never been more determined and focused on what I was trying to accomplish. I was in my 5 th year at North Central College playing my last year of baseball. I committed to getting good grades and decided not to drink over the course of the entire season (pretty big deal for a college kid). Less than two months into my commitment, my best friend was murdered. With the help of my girlfriend at the time (now wife Kate), I was able to bounce back from the worst downward spiral of my life. Not long after my recovery, we had an opportunity to start our gym. Blinded by ignorance and the excitement of the opportunity, Kate and I dove in headfirst without any experience in business, sales, ....

  • Turn your body into a fat burning machine

    Fat loss is by far the most common goal out of the hundreds of people I talk to every year. “Cardio” is the most common answer I hear when I ask what they are currently doing, and unfortunately, cardio is at the bottom of the list when it comes to fat loss. The answer is strength training, and I’ll tell you why. There are many different benefits to strength training, but today we’re going to focus on why strength training is king when it comes to fat loss. I’m going to keep this as simple and straightforward as possible. When you strength train consistently, you build muscle. There’s a laundry list of benefits when it comes to building ....

  • 5 Tips For Strength Training Over 40 (Part 1/5)

    Tips For Strength Training over 40: Part 1 Make time for mobility The days are over where you can just show up and hop right into a workout. Why do you need mobility? Reason #1: Safety. If you cannot move well through proper ranges of motion, the odds of injury during exercise drastically goes up. Reason #2: Chronic Pain. If your joints don’t move the way they are supposed to, you’ll likely be in some amount of chronic pain. This pain usually ends up in the knees, lower back, shoulders, or some combination of the three. Reason #3: Results. The better quality of movement you have, the better your results can ultimately be. By working through a greater range of ....

  • Do I need to get in shape before joining a gym?

    Joining a new gym is scary. You haven’t done anything in a while, and might feel self conscious about the way you look and current level of fitness. I’m sure thoughts have popped into your head like “I don’t want to embarrass myself” or “I can’t do that” or “everyone else is going to be so much further ahead of me.” There are so many other things that can cause fear and anxiety when looking for a new gym, so I understand why you might be feeling this way. I can relate to these feelings when I signed up for three months at a boxing/mma gym. I had never done any sort of boxing, jiu-jitsu or any martial art ever in my life. I can ....

  • Motivation Part 2

    As a personal trainer, I talk to a lot of people about goals and making changes. Inevitably, motivation is a common topic that comes up. “I just can’t seem to stay motivated” or “I need help with motivation” is something I hear almost every day. Understanding these next few points is critical if you want to become motivated. It starts with a complete mindset shift. The truth is, we’re being misled every single day when it comes to motivation. First, it’s important to understand where motivation comes from. Most people think motivation just appears out of nowhere and that it’s a genetic trait that you either have or you don’t. ....

  • A counterintuitive way to get motivated

    If you feel yourself starting to lose motivation, here's some unsolicited advice that may help you get through it. 

 This year I made a promise to myself that I would get back to my disciplined ways, and so far it's going well. The commitment I've made to myself is to be up at 3:30 in the morning Monday-Friday to either finish or work on my highest priority. The reality is, with a 9 month old son, and all of the things I need to do throughout the day, I really don't have any other option if I want to hit my goals. I've been more productive in the last few weeks than the previous few months, and I can feel the momentum building. There's one thing I've ....

  • I QUIT

    I had been playing baseball since the time I could walk, and there I was in my junior year of college… quitting. The reason I quit was so simple it makes me sick just thinking about it. I quit because the circumstances weren’t ideal for me at the time. I was having some trouble dealing with some family stuff, and I didn’t particularly like the way the head coach managed the team. So I quit. About 1 week in to quitting, I began thinking about what I had done, and exactly who I was quitting on. The first and most obvious answer was my team. I’m sure many of them were dealing with similar circumstances, but they didn’t quit. I did. Then I started thinking ....
