Beer and Lifting- Not as bad as you think!

So you’re thinking on going out for drinks with friends after training?  Well think a little longer on that decision before things start to get out of hand.  I’m not saying don’t ever go out and get a drink, what I’m saying is don’t have 10.  Not only will you feel like crap the next […]

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

When deciding on big goals and listing out all the ways that you can accomplish them, you can get a feeling of accomplishment, that “yes I’m finally doing something”.  If that is all that you do then all it is is a false sense of accomplishment.  You didn’t actually do anything you set out to […]

Just Show Up

There are times when you are not at your best, when you have so much on your plate that there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day.  That the “easier” task to accomplish will take precedent because it will have a direct effect on your immediate future instead of long down the […]

Pick up your phone and read this post on how you should put your phone down and experience your life better.

Brush Yourself Off and Try Again

We all might have goals we want to get to and that’s great I think that having goals is a start but where a lot of people start to let it slip  is when they first start out and they miss a workout.  Or they might mess up their super strict diet.  Some people would […]

The Problem Isn’t Starting It’s Staying Disciplined

How many times have you started on any journey, for most of us it tends to be a weight loss, and 2-3 weeks later you start slipping?   You start off great. You’ve been staying exactly on the weight loss plan and your workout plan.  The motivation that you started out with was great. But […]
