F#@! New Year’s Resolution’s

F#@! New Year’s Resolution's That’s right you heard me, “F#@! New Year’s Resolutions!”  This is not an anti goal setting rant. Everybody should have goals and set goals regularly.  The purpose of this post is to take a stand against the negativity that comes with those three words, “New Year’s Resolutions.”  Have you ever heard a positive story about a person who successfully kept their New Years Resolution? Probably not. I bet you’ve heard at least a dozen stories about new year’s resolution fails though.   [...]

How to be a Donut Slayer

How to be a Donut Slayer When I was a kid, I learned a lesson at a wrestling camp that I now refer to as the “one thing rule.” At a wrestling camp you learn a crash course of wrestling moves over just a few days and it can be overwhelming. At one of my first camps, my camp leader told me that if I walked away from the camp with just one thing that made me a better wrestler, then the whole camp was [...]

Your Fitness is Our Priority

When someone hires a personal trainer, he or she is usually fueled by short-term motivation. There is probably something coming up soon that is driving them to want results. Maybe it’s a couple who just got engaged and they want to look great for their wedding. Maybe someone has a cruise or vacation coming up and they want to look good in their swimsuit. Maybe there is a family reunion or a class reunion coming up and you’re going to be seeing people who last saw you when you were in much better shape, or another common one is that your birthday is coming up and you don’t want to feel old when you become a year older.

A Letter To My Obstacles

A Letter To My Obstacles... There is no doubt that you are the favorite in this competition, and I am the underdog.  You are a proven champion, and most people will bet on you.  You can be very intimidating if I allow you to be.  Just like Muhammad Ali, you have the ability to beat many of your opponents before the match even starts.  I know I can’t ignore you.  I know you will not just go away.  You are what stands between me and [...]
