Try Something Difficult – Change Your Life

The fitness world is fraught with inconsistencies. Butter used to be bad. But now it’s good. Eggs are terrible for your cholesterol. But actually it’s not! Squats kill your knees, don’t do them. But actually, do them because you have to every time you poop! It’s a world full of noise. It makes living aContinue reading “Try Something Difficult – Change Your Life”

Failure is Temporary

Hey! Just wanted to drop a quick reminder to you. Failure is only as temporary as you make it. I’ve had the pleasure of watching my kid grow. And a highlight in my life was watching her first steps. It didn’t happen overnight. She tried, and tried, and tried. She fell a bunch. Got bruisedContinue reading “Failure is Temporary”

Capturing Moments of Gratitude

Hey Friends, I’ve spent the last ten plus years inundated with fitness. It’s been a passion. A point of service. And I’ve been grateful at the opportunity to not only serve amazing people, but experience a lifestyle unique to me. One that I am proud of. But also, one that I question every single day.Continue reading “Capturing Moments of Gratitude”

Volunteered Hardship

In today’s world, we come up with activities to mimic our ancestral struggles. As humans, we’ve evolved to leverage tools and technology to answer the call of inconveniences. Instead of running from bears, we go for a jog or a luxuriously paved hike. Instead of hunting for food, we go to the grocery store. InsteadContinue reading “Volunteered Hardship”

The PPSC and Humility

There is something positively contagious about learning something new. An impulse to open up and share new knowledge with the world. Everyone should know about X, and there is no reason you should not apply X, immediately! Flash forward to when you open your mouth and tell someone (my wife) and you come out soundingContinue reading “The PPSC and Humility”

Why Weight Loss?

There was a morning you woke up, looked in the mirror and decided you didn’t like what you saw.

You step on the scale, disappointed, as the number stares at you like some kind of toddler taunting youContinue reading “Why Weight Loss?”

You Have Two Brains

Your body is complex. It’s a wonderful array of systems, working together to help you fulfill the needs to sustain life. The very fact that you are reading this, processing it and (hopefully) understanding these words speaks to how amazing YOU are. The various systems within your body work together to make you the personContinue reading “You Have Two Brains”

Racquetball + Fitness = Anthony

Finished up a bit ago with a client who has…survived Covid. I say survive rather than thrive because the mental game behind his training has been STOLEN from him. Not in the sense that he caught covid and nearly died. But the whole ‘Normal’ thing. Things have changed a bit from the beginning of theContinue reading “Racquetball + Fitness = Anthony”

I Run Because

You strap on your shoes. Lace them up from the bottom to top. Making sure your socks are nice and smooth to reduce the blister risk. Step outside and turn on your distance tracking/speed tracking app. Thumb through previous runs and set a target for today’s run. With the headphones blaring, you get started. TheContinue reading “I Run Because”
