I’ve got to tell you something. I hate the term “jumpstart” when talking about nutrition and fitness. I hate it, but I’ve used it. For example, I had a small program called the “28-Day Jumpstart.” Hypocritical? Maybe, but before you get carried away and run me out of town, let me explain. Over my years...

8:30 Monday morning I’m at the gym preparing for a meeting with a client—let’s call her Deb—at 8:45 am. She is attending a strength class that will end in a few minutes. The class finishes and Deb walks over to meet me, breathing heavily and wiping her face with a towel. “How was class today?”...

A few weeks ago on this blog, I discussed my new online coach. If you remember, I said I was trying to reach some new goals and was looking for a fresh perspective. Fast forward to today….I have to tell you the difference has been HUGE. I’ve not only lost more than two pounds, but...

In my last blog I discussed how we use weightlifting to burn fat at the Bodysmith. That’s because the methods we use—referred to as metabolic resistance training—not only help you lose weight, but also increase your metabolism so you burn more calories throughout the day … even while sleeping! Metabolic Resistance Training is simply the best,...

Over the last few months, I’ve been geeking out on my workouts, trying new exercises, tools, plans and programs. Part of the fun in owning a gym is experimenting with different modalities, tools, and philosophies to construct the best workouts for our members. Plus, as a coach, I’m allowed 😉 Over my years in the...

I love this quote by Stephen Covey and wanted to share it with you. Besides, who can’t use a little extra push on a Tuesday morning 😉 “I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.” What a powerful reminder that WE are in control of much more than...
