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...

Yesterday my coach kicked my butt. As surprising as it may sound, I currently am working with four coaches—three business coaches and now, one fitness coach. Is that surprising? The class I mentioned it to on Monday was sure surprised. I know what you’re thinking. “You have a coach? But you are a coach. Can’t...

“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” –Henry Ford Our minds. Our greatest strength and our greatest threat. We will use it, or misuse it, to shape the path of our lives.​ Shocking? Not really. Not when you consider how easily all of us can fall prey to the world’s negativity,...

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...

Communication is key to a good relationship, right? So that’s why I like to keep in touch with our Bodysmith members. For example, one way I do that is by sending them a quick message each week. It’s usually nothing fancy, just a quick “hi,” or a quote I hope resonates with them or encourages...

How long do you have to work out to see results? That question comes up almost daily, and my stock replay is usually, “What time do you have?” Many of my colleagues, however, jump immediately to “one hour a day, three days a week.” But this may not be the best answer. Why? Let’s walk...

Here’s something I’ve noticed over my years in fitness: rarely will someone get hurt while exercising in the gym. Yes, it happens, and that’s why no one will ever work out in solitude at the Bodysmith. I’ve seen people strain hamstrings, drop weights on their feet and hands, or fail under a bench press and...
