    Growth & change

    In order to grow, we must be willing to accept change in every area of life. And given that our brains are designed to resist and protect us from change, these choices must be conscious! Pay attention to the reasons "why not" your brain likes to trick you with and make those conscious decisions to accept change and do things differently. Where are you on a scale of 1-10 in your willingness to accept change? To determine where you are on the scales, you can consider: **What are you willing to give up to get what you want? **What are you willing to spend to get to where you want to be? **Are you willing to let go of truths you might hold and see things from a different perspective? The ....

    On failures and lessons...

    What's the difference between failures and lessons? To me, they are very similar and both rooted, ultimately, in failure. The key difference is turning a failure into a lesson. You see, you can either let failures stop you in your tracks OR you can take note of what didn't work, why it didn't work, and change your approach or plan. It's really that simple. As a fitness professional, it is my duty to take both my own failures and the past failures of clients and mold them into powerful lessons that ultimately move us all forward. Think on this for a bit - when is the last time a challenge or failure stopped you from moving forward in your life, whether in fitness, career, ....

    Never say these two words…

    What I’m about to share with you are two very harmless words except when they’re used together. These words are… “Yeah, but…” Let me explain with an example. Person #1: “You know there’s never a perfect time to start exercising.” Person #2: “ Yeah, but
    things are just extra crazy right now with the holidays coming.” You see, the phrase “yeah, but” does two things.
    It acknowledges the situation, challenge, etc.
    It refutes your ability to do anything about it. And the truth is that there’s never a “but” when something is important enough or a high enough priority ....

    7 rules for healthy living

    Today I’m coming at you with some practical info that you can implement right away for better health. So, without further ado, here are my 7 rules for living a healthy EPIC life: 1. Drink water! Half of your body weight in ounces per day is your absolute minimum! I also suggest drinking a full glass of water prior to each meal to prevent over-eating in addition to drinking a glass as soon as you wake up. 2. Focus on eating mostly proteins, vegetables, good fats, some fruit, and good-quality starches (like potatoes of any kind). Keep sugar to a minimum! 3. Never eat in a hurry. Do your best to always eat slowly and in a relaxed state. 4. Never eat until you’re stuffed ....

    Time isn't the issue

    Here at Epic Fitness, we’ve most often seen TIME cited as the biggest challenge for people around sticking to a fitness and nutrition program. But you see, time as the obstacle is simply a myth. I get that you are busy. So is the rest of the world. And every person thinks they are simply the busiest one. So, why is it that some people are able to make time for health and fitness and others are not? Simply put, it’s an issue of priority.
    It takes no more time to consume a healthy meal than an unhealthy one. And it takes simple rearrangement, scheduling, and commitment to make fitness happen. You can pick up healthy fast food as quickly as unhealthy fast food. When it ....

    What is eating mindfully? *FREE DOWNLOAD*

    With so many diets making headlines, I wanted to highlight the new anti-diet approach to you called Mindful Eating. Mindful eating practices are the result of the absolute exhaustion people feel when they are or have been chronic dieters. Counting calories, weighing and measuring food, and feeling guilt or pride around food choices will take a lot out of you! And that’s just one reason that most dieters fail (and gain even more weight). The principle of mindful eating is to essentially reject diet mentality. To no longer identify foods as good or bad. And to never go hungry, leading to feelings of deprivation and binging cycles. Mindful eating doesn’t imply a free-for-all, ....

    Don't practice positive thinking!

    In his book, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker talks about positive thinking vs. power thinking. Positive thinking is our default when we want to improve an area of our lives. We journal, recite affirmations, and work to build our positive thoughts. What Eker points out is that positive thinking implies that we accept our own thoughts as truth. Instead, he suggests focusing on power thinking, which is an extension of positive thinking in that you are working to build your belief, but instead, you acknowledge that things only have meaning because we give them meaning. You can attach a particular meaning to anything but that doesn’t mean ....

    On creating your reality

    Read any book out there on what it takes to be successful in any area of your life, and the majority will tell you that it’s your thoughts and your mindset that determine success or failure. Your inner world 🧠 (your thoughts and beliefs) will determine your outer world 🌎 (what’s actually happening in reality). If you fully believe that you’re capable of change, committing to the process, and of creating the body of your dreams, you’ll do it. But if any part of you inside is saying “yeah, but probably not for x, y, and z reasons,” you won’t do it. The universe does NOT like mixed messages. You simply cannot SAY you want ....

    Act on promises, not on feelings

    Having been in the fitness industry for several years now, I’ve seen a lot of success stories but I’ve also seen a lot of people fall short of what they’re capable of and give up on themselves. I think this comes down to one key difference around our mindset in the actions we take. Let me explain… When you have an experience like trying on clothes or another trigger event that makes you declare that you’re going to get in shape, it’s very easy to feel determined and motivated in that moment. You make the plan – “Monday, I’m making it happen!” or “Once the kids go back to ....

    Never give your POWER away

    Have you ever experienced a time in life where you let someone’s opinion of you change your thoughts, feelings, or behavior? Have you ever made choices that weren’t aligned with your desires but you did it anyway to keep someone else happy? Have you ever let what someone said about you alter your reality or make you question yourself? These are experiences that most people go through many times throughout life. My goal today is to bring your awareness to what might be happening so you can choose something different. You see, when you allow the words or expectations of others to impact your life in a way that makes you less happy, you are giving up your ....
