Do This One Thing and Life Will Get Better


What is one thing you can start doing that will have a profound impact on your life? Asking for help. Our society tells us that asking for help is a sign of weakness. A sign that we aren't capable of doing it on our own. A sign of failure. I look at it as the opposite. It is a sign of vulnerability and gives someone else the opportunity to be a blessing. I recently shared a powerful story of … [Read more...]

Let Me Be Vulnerable and Share With You A Secret…


Being a fitness professional is hard... It is hard to live up to the standards and "perfect" lifestyle that our clients believe we have. Believe it or not, most fitness professionals struggle with body image, weight maintenance, motivation, etc., just like you. I really struggled with this earlier on in my career. I would make sure none of my clients were around at the grocery store if I bought … [Read more...]

Was The Biggest Loser Winner TOO Thin?

1 Biggest

Unless you tune out all media, it was hard to escape the buzz over this week's BL winner. Rachel, 5'5, went from 260 lbs to 105 lbs in the course of the 8 months. Was The Biggest Loser winner too thin? I am not here to judge if what she did was unhealthy or not. I have read reports that she ate 1,600 calories a day and worked out up to four times each day, but who knows... I wasn't with her 24/7 s … [Read more...]

$100 Off Best Selling Home Nutrition Course


As her youngest child was turning 16 years old, Anita Peters was tired, confused about what to eat and 100 pounds overweight.

The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Kids


As a mom you will do anything for your kids. You will stay up all night when they have a fever, you will take off work to get them to a doctor's appointment, and you will sacrifice your personal money and time so that they have everything they need and want. I just saw a study that said pregnant moms are 96% more likely to eat healthy. This is awesome since the newer research coming out shows … [Read more...]

What is The Shortest Amount of Time Possible To Get Results

1 a shortest

What do you think is people's #1 reason why they don't exercise enough? According to national surveys along with my own survey, TIME was the #1 excuse. Yes, I call it an excuse even though some in my survey tried to convince me otherwise. We all have the same 24 hours in a day. Sure there are some whose circumstances make it easier then others, but it is still a choice at the end of the d … [Read more...]

Are You Getting The Fuel Your Body Needs?


As a trainer, the #1 most asked question I get is "what should I eat?" This question makes sense because there are SO many different diets out there that promise rapid results. The truth is that many of them are successful for a short amount of time, but extremely unsuccessful in the long run because they can't be sustained. 97% of people who go on a diet and lose weight gain it back and sometimes … [Read more...]

Most of the time I never mention them, but I wanted to give access to a podcast I recently did that I thought was exceptionally good. Not because I did anything great, but the dad who interviewed me was an incredible interviewer. I love to learn through listening. I try to listen to a … [Read more...]
