Struggling to get by...get connected.

Good morning folks, Thanks for hanging in there! For fighting the fight. For being positive when you'd rather tell the world to take a long hike off a short pier. My name is Tanner and I’m in your corner. I'm here to tell you it's worth it. I appreciate and respect what you're doing. Please leave a comment (praise or prayer), if you can hear me now! 

Prioritize your Fat Loss Goals

A majority of my training clients want me to deliver a high-energy, results-driven workout to help them lose fat. However, many of them fall short of reaching their goals. Why? Because what you eat and drink is far more important for fat loss than your workouts. If your true goal is fat loss (not weight loss) then you need to change your thinking and your priorities.

The "I" In Team

When your GUTS hate you..........

Have you ever wondered why your GUT is hating on you?  First, let’s see how your gut is feeling these days. I like to call this a GUT CHECK!   Are you bloated, hurting, trouble pooping, diarrhea, indigestion, hot burps, burning in your belly, constipation?  Are you popping Tums, Heartburn pills, poop pills, stool softeners?

Eat Like A Caveman, But Don't Act Like One!

 Nowadays most guys either are very soft and cuddly with their skinny jeans, hair buns and dad bods or super macho and showing everyone. These extremes are just plain sad. To both groups I beg you please WAKE UP! Do you really think that real women want either?

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.

Preventative Care

Most of us don't think about fixing our car, until it breaks down. Then, it's expensive, time consuming, and sometimes, can be too late. Our bodies and minds are the same. Consider a healthy balance of taking care of YOU, before you get sick and need loads of prescriptions. Balancing life is tough, I get it! Consider baby steps and make a plan.

The Pyramid People Keep Falling For

The first food pyramid was introduced in the 1970's, and it is supported by the USDA. The food pyramid calls for a diet high in carbohydrates, such as grains, cereals, rice, etc., and a diet low in fats. With that said, why are obesity rates and diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's on the rise? Society is constantly told to exercise and follow proper nutrition guidelines.
