The #1 Thing Required to Lose Fat and Transform Your Life

The Actor Hugh Laurie once said, “It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready." I agree with this quote and believe that actually, no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, "now is as good a time as any.” I was standing on a big pier 25 feet above the water in my … [Read more...]

How to not gain 50-100lbs

Support, community, and accountability are the three words that most of our clients say they are looking for when they join the Transformation Center, because they haven’t been able to find these at big box gyms.
