I am honored, excited and proud to announce that I have been approved by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) as a Recognized Personal Trainer Emeritus (RCPT*E).

The Common Denominator

Look in the mirror.That's the only person in between who you are and the person you want to be. Period.Every day there's a new product, gizmo or diet that claims to be the fast track to a healthier and happier you. How many have you tried? Be honest. How did it "workout" for you? Right...that's what I thought.

Why You're Not Reaching Your FItness Goals

The Magic Pill

 

Get Out The Way!

Time is money.  Wish I had a nickel for every time I've heard that.  How often have you wished for more than 24 hours in a day? Prioritizing our to-do list can be quite challenging.  By a show of hands, how high do you rank your personal health and well being?  

The "I" In Team

How many times have you heard "There's no "I" in team?  Take a closer look and you might reconsider.   

Invest In Yourself!

The value of a dollar was instilled in me at a young age by my Parents. "Money doesn't grow on trees" is a phrase I often heard when I wanted something.  I've yet to find a money tree; however, what I've realized in adulthood is...people spend time and money on what's important to them.  Whether it's travel, dining, entertainment, fashion, automotive, or a plethora of other options, we tend to make things we enjoy a priority and use our two most valuable resources (time & money) engaging in these activities. Everything else usually gets an excuse.

Know Your Why!

Something I can count on every day at the gym is seeing someone attempting the latest get fit quick exercise they've seen in their favorite fitness social media outlet or magazine.  Nine times out of ten they're performing the exercise incorrectly.  On top of that, they most likely have no idea WHY they're doing that particular exercise in the first place. They saw someone else doing it and thought it looked cool to try.
