    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 ....

  • Why they sabotage you

    If you’ve ever been on a powerful mission to get healthier, eat better, and be consistent with your exercise routine, you may have noticed that certain friends and family aren’t in love with your new-found dedication. And it’s not because they don’t love you. It’s because it’s hard for them to see you change. Maybe they think you won’t be able to have as much fun because you’ll stop being as social. Maybe they’re irritated by your refusal to eat something they just baked. Maybe they’re upset that you declined Saturday morning mimosas in favor of hitting the gym. I’m here to tell you that this is normal, that you ....

  • I’m about to blow your mind

    Ok – are you ready for this? This is so crazy! Research shows that what you believe to be TRUE about foods largely determines how foods affect your body. There was a study done where two groups of participants were given the SAME milkshake, but one group was told that it was ‘a 620 calorie indulgent shake’ while the other group was told it was a ‘120 calorie diet shake.’ The result was mind-blowing. Those who believed they were drinking the indulgent shake felt more full and reported feeling how you’d expect someone to feel after a high calorie meal. The other group did not report the same appetite suppression or feelings of fullness. This goes on ....

    Recovery vs Activity

    There’s no denying that the world of 2018 is one of chronic stress and pressure to achieve. Sometimes it can be challenging to get it all done – family, friends, exercise, daily movement, work, managing a home – whew! That’s a lot of demand. So, I want to invite you to get in better touch with yourself today. We all know when we make excuses and talk ourselves out of getting in a workout or preparing a healthy meal. But sometimes it’s deeper and more intense than that. Your body is screaming at you, begging for you to care for it. When you hear that voice and feel that exhaustion, I want you to know it’s OKAY to listen. Here are some of the BEST ....

    What are you willing to struggle for?

    Hi{{ subscriber.first_name }}, “They” say nothing good in life comes without effort, and I absolutely believe this to be true. Whether you want a successful business, a happy marriage, good kids, or a lean and healthy body, you’ve got to put in the work! There’s just no way around it. Sometimes it will feel like getting fit is a struggle. It’s hours that you “don’t have,” it’s money you’d rather spend elsewhere, or maybe it’s even pressure from your family to be home or judgement/commentary friends present regarding your dedication to health. But at the end of the day, you choose
    health, fitness, and living in your body ....

    The marathon

    When we decide we want something big in life – a body transformation, to compete in an athletic event, to start a business, etc., we often WANT IT NOW. Frequently here at Epic Fitness we have to remind clients that health and fitness, like anything important and worthwhile in life, are a marathon effort, not a sprint or a race. Patience, persistence, and perseverance will get you everywhere when approaching big life changes or goals. Urgency, impatience, and inconsistency will, conversely, get you nowhere. Can you lose 20 pounds in a month? Probably. But 2-3 months down the line things won’t look or feel very good. More importantly even, things like pain management, habit ....

You are cared for, and you are wanted. You don’t have to be anything that you are not to walk through our doors and receive ....

    Guilt has no place with food

    As you might imagine, I, like many people who work in the fitness industry, have had to overcome mindset issues around food. If you’ve ever experienced guilt around food, this message is for you. I understand. I know what it’s like to beat yourself up for eating that piece of cake or for eating junk food all weekend. I know what it’s like to wake up bloated and full of regret. I know what it’s like to judge myself and my inability to make the “right choices” 100% of the time. But I’m here to tell you today that it does you no good for several reasons:
    You can’t undo what you’ve just eaten anyway
    Shame and guilt make you actually ....

  • 5 permanent fat loss strategies cheat sheet

    When it comes to fat loss, no one argues that nutrition plays the primary role in someone’s success or failure. Your continued nutrition also decides whether or not you keep the weight off or gain it back. Crash diets and quick fixes are often extremely restrictive and require you to eat in a way that you could never sustain for the rest of your life. This is why over 90% of people who lose weight gain it back (plus some). If you have ever lost weight or attempted to lose weight and failed, you know how frustrating it can be – not only in the moments that you find yourself falling off the wagon but also as you watch yourself regain the fat you did lose, despite a conscious ....
