Mindset: Growth Choices

A wise friend of mine once told me that you can’t prioritize everything in life all at once. This statement came after I asked him why he had been away from the gym the past three months. To me, it was shocking how a person could minimize their fitness after making remarkable gains over the past […]

Mindset: Change Your Focus

Think not of what you can’t do or control, but think of what you can. Changing your focus is crucial to getting one step closer to your goals. The inner game (between your ears) is won in isolation, many times each day. Engage in the battle with a solid conviction and no fear attitude. Life […]

A Call to Action

Fit. Healthy. Confident. A Call to Action. Get Noticed. Be Different. Stay Successful. Do you see how “fit, healthy, and confident” translates to “noticed, different, successful?” Now, do you think those words mean the same thing to all people? No. Everybody has a slightly different vision of their end-point. But, you can begin to understand […]

Balancing the Fitness Equation

Balancing the Fitness Equation To ensure our health, wellness, and a steady progression, work and rest need to balance each other out. This is the same principle that defines many other areas of our life: financial, social, work, school… you name it. I exercise everyday. Whether I’m in training for a race, or focusing on […]

Realistic Fitness (training)

The Meat: Do your own thing. No, seriously, do your own thing. You don’t have to train like a pro athlete, nor should you want to. You don’t have to be a vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten/dairy free or whatever to have “the look”. You don’t (nor would I recommend) have to quit your job (you’re […]

Honing the Edge

Real regrets only come from not doing your best. All else is out of your control. You’re measured by results only. Trade excuses and “trying” for results, and expect half-hearted results from half-hearted efforts. Do more than is expected of you. Life’s easy when you live it the hard way… and hard if you try […]

Trim The Fat

TRIM THE FAT Change is good. Change is necessary. Change is often overdue. Most of you know what I’m talking about here. We are a part of the information age. Flooded, from all angles with studies, before and after photos, proclamations, testimonials, money back guarantees, etc. etc. It’s relentless and it’s also tempting to read, […]

Commit. Learn. Resolve.

  Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they’ve got a second. Give your dreams all you’ve got and you’ll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you. -William James There is a common theory in the fitness industry that most programs will work for 6-weeks, few […]

Personalization

“Any other path leads to someone else’s dream.” -Lyn Christian I came across this quote earlier this morning and it sparked something in me. You see, this past weekend I was lucky enough to spend a significant amount of time with my father-in-law, Jan. We both have a high interest in fitness, health and running, […]

The Spirit of Training: Intention

I’ve been strength training a long time. It’s been on my mind ever since I walked into the gym at the tender age of 13, enrolling in my first “weight lifting” class so I could use the YMCA facilities without adult supervision. The gym was a place I could work on myself. Watching strong bodies […]
