    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

    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?

    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 ....

  •  in Simi Valley - Epic Fitness - 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. ....

    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 ....
