Park Workout 101

In this time of social distancing, the hard part is finding time and space to break free from our little bubbles. Waking up this morning, I rolled out of bed angst-y, angry and a grump to the Nth degree (just ask Heather). Bout time to get out, shepherd some strength and HIIT something to calmContinue reading “Park Workout 101”

Is Carbonated Water Bad for You?

Hey! I was chatting with a client the other day and he had a question that made me say ‘Hmm’. He asked the question in the title of the post. As with every other answer I ever give, I want to be confident in saying Yay or Nay. On this one I more concerned withContinue reading “Is Carbonated Water Bad for You?”

Getting Fit 101: Measurements Worth Tracking

The last couple of weeks I have been riddled with ideas, thoughts and new ways of thinking. I’ve compiled a small group of testers to track a few measureable data points each day, week and month.

Behavior Drives Results

Wake up. Brush your teeth. Take a shower. Eat Breakfast. Go to work and make money. Go home. Eat dinner. Go to sleep. Far too often, I see this kind of routine. It is a pleasure of mine to learn and work with all of the professionally successful people I do. At the same time,Continue reading “Behavior Drives Results”

Killing Sugar Cravings

YO! A topic I probably should have addressed in one of my first blog posts ever…sugar cravings. Everyone knows it’s terrible to consume a metric crap ton in one sitting, but I’ll be the first to admit I’ve destroyed a bag of Twizzlers or Skittles in my day. With no regrets. That shit is likeContinue reading “Killing Sugar Cravings”

Day 1 in the Gym

There’s a guy I know who’s scared shitless of the gym. Mirrors everywhere. Jacked dudes and beautiful women with wandering eyes. There’s an unspoken pressure to lift at least as much as the person next to you. And an uncomfortable feeling of asking someone to spot you…and being so nervous that you just try toContinue reading “Day 1 in the Gym”

Your Baseball Card

Baseball cards used to be a huge thing. You’d see the player picture on the front (with a cheesy pose most of the time), combined with the lifetime stats on the back of the card. You could see home runs, batting average and other stats over the career of a player. It was something thatContinue reading “Your Baseball Card”

Exercise While Pregnant

Hey, In case you didn’t know, my wife Heather is pregnant. 30 weeks in. And I’m still freaking out, man. I’ve been doing some research into exercise while pregnant. I’ve done my best in talking to MDs, reseaching nerdy crap and talking to people with experience. But really, I just want to make sure it’sContinue reading “Exercise While Pregnant”

Connecting your Why

  Earlier today I ran up to the rec center. And in case I haven’t told you, I’m on a basketball kick. Basketball is funny to me. It’s a reminder of when I went through my surgeries. It’s a reminder of the years of rehab. It’s a reminder of all the hours spent on theContinue reading “Connecting your Why”
