  • Why our goals are never realized

    Why our goals are never realized

    We all have hopes, dreams, and goals that light a fire in us with moments of inspiration. I’ve felt it so many times across areas of my life, and I know you have too. I hear this A TON when it comes to fitness goals and people whose desire is to get in amazing shape. It’s like they set the intention, feel the fire, but it very quickly fizzles. And I think I know why… It’s because the action isn’t immediate. Let’s look at an example. Susan has thought about dropping 20 pounds for years. Saturday, she goes to an event that’s incredibly inspiring and she’s charged ....

  • The mindset that gets you results

    The mindset that gets you results

    I’ve talked to soooo many people over the years that just want the perfect plan. They think if they know exactly what exercises to do and what foods to eat, all of their body/fitness woes will be resolved. But deep down, I think we all know that’s not the truth. So, what should you really focus on in terms of your mindset to ensure success? It’s literally about training yourself to show up every day and not quit. If it sounds counterintuitive, it’s because it kind of is. We all think we need to know the thing – the plan – to get results. But the truth is that simply ....

    Don't let this stop you!

    Stress is an unavoidable part of life that we all have to deal with – usually on a daily basis. Yet so often people use stress and busyness as an excuse to eat poorly and not exercise. You wouldn’t believe how many times I’ve spoken to people who say something like “I REALLY need your help, but things are just crazy right now. Can I start in 4 months?” Whoa. That’s 4 months of making yourself less healthy and delaying your own happiness and confidence. And for what? Because legitimately, that’s just a silly excuse that translates to “It’s not a priority right now.” No matter how busy or stressed people get, they typically ....

  • Balance is a myth

    Balance is a myth

    There’s this concept of work-life balance floating around for years now. It’s this idea that there’s a magical ratio of work hours to home life hours to relaxation. And it’s elusive to most people because it doesn’t truly exist. Like everything else in life, your perfect balance is something YOU have to create. What does exist, however, is our ability to take ownership of our time, to schedule what works best for us, and to honor our commitments to that schedule. What will work for one person and make them feel balanced will be entirely different for another. So, to create some order in your life and give you a better sense of balance and control, here ....

    The 8 exercises to do to have the body you want

    I’m going to be honest – there’s a lot of hype in the exercise market today. It almost feels like whoever can do the most creative exercises wins some kind of award. But the truth is…that’s not a good use of your time because it’s not going to get you the results you probably desire – a lean, defined, healthy body

  • The way forward

    The way forward

    Despite what many people in the business world are teaching, there is a very simple way to move your business and your life forward. It's not writing to-do lists, creating a strategic plan or, some other complex thing. It's simple, really. It's action. It's literally taking one step in the right direction...followed by another and then another. And sometimes this requires experimenting with totally new actions if previous ones weren't working. When we overcomplicate things, we get ourselves stuck. We find ourselves frozen, unable to take action. We overwhelm ourselves with the big picture and suddenly ....

  • Rules were made to be broken

    If you’ve at the fitness game for a while, you may have jumped on and off the wagon a time or two. And through that process, you may have picked up specific beliefs around exercise and nutrition “rules.” Some examples would be… “Don’t eat after 7pm.” “Lifting weights makes you bulky, so focus on yoga and cardio.” “Keep your calorie count to 1200 of less each day.” And frankly, rules are made to be broken. Those rules that we so often hold onto for dear life are the rules that made us fall off the wagon in the first place. They’re the rules that kept us from getting real, lasting results. So, ....

  • It might as well be a horror movie

    It might as well be a horror movie

    You want to get fit. You join your local big box gym. You show up on Day 1, fully committed, in your new fitness gear, and open the doors. Suddenly it feels like all eyes are on you. You walk to the treadmill and warm yourself up for 10 minutes or so. Then it’s time to hit the weights. Except you have no idea what to do with them. You can feel the sweat starting to build, but it’s from the sheer horror, intimidation, and embarrassment you’re experiencing – not the exercise. You decide to play it safe and do the machine circuit. You sit down on the first machine and realize you have no clue what weight to use let alone how the machine operates. Suddenly, a ....

  • Are you playing this dangerous game?

    Are you playing this dangerous game?

    It’s the middle of December if you can believe it! Time for family, friends, parties, and reflection on the past year. But I want to highlight something that I think is incredibly important… If you aren’t where you want to be in terms of your health and fitness right now, and you’re waiting for January 1 to get started, there is a 93% chance you’ll be getting ready to start your journey all over again on January 1, 2020. Let me explain… When we put off change and tackling goals, it sets us up for almost certain failure (93% chance according to research). That’s right, 93% of people ....

  • Lean Habits

    Lean Habits

    One of the major differences I see between chronically fit people and those who aren’t is that fit people have developed something I call “lean habits.” A fit person has typically developed enough discipline over time to make the choices that best serve them and their goals regularly, which is what allows them to stay fit. For example, a person with lean habits can choose water over soda with lunch. They can drive by fast food restaurants and not be tempted to pull over. They can say no to dessert most of the time without a second thought. Are lean habits easy to develop? Well, honestly, no. But they absolutely can be developed with consistent commitment over time. ....
