5 Ways To Lose 5 Pounds (or more) In 5 Days

I am a very impatient person. When I order something from Amazon I want it on my doorstep that afternoon. When I make up my mind on what I want for dinner, I don’t want to wait for it to be prepared. If I think up a project to start at home, I want it done that weekend, which also means I usually screw something up. I also like to know ways to improve my body in very short periods of time. I’m assuming you ...

5 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight

I have a big, meaty article for you today so I’m going to skip the warm and fuzzies and just get right to it. Some people struggle with their weight loss, and some struggle mightily. It can be confusing as hell.  You think you’re doing all the right things, but the waist isn’t shrinking and the pants aren’t feeling baggy, or the muscles aren’t “popping” the way you thought they would be by now. In my experi ...

Jungle Gym XT and Diet Support From Family Q&A Session

So Nolan turned 2 last week, and that really freaked me out. It doesn’t seem like 2 years ago that he graced this world with his presence (too haughty?).  I can still vividly remember everything about that day - how nervous, yet incredibly excited I was to have another child. It’s crazy how fast time goes. One minute you’re holding your newborn, the next you’re chasing him around the house because he has yo ...

Simple Tip To Stronger, More Defined Arms

I’m a dude, and as a dude I can say that dudes love to train their arms. We all want bigger, stronger and more defined arms. Any guy who tells you differently is lying. I can also tell you that every single lady I’ve worked with has wanted better arms.  She hasn’t wanted bigger arms, but she’s wanted stronger, more toned arms. Any lady who told me differently… ...wasn’t telling the whole truth and I usually ...

How To Start A Diet

Another wild and wooly week on the home front, and another awesome week of interaction with awesome folks like you! No stories this week, not because nothing interesting happened, but my brain isn’t firing on all cylinders, which probably means I need to take a nap. Oh well...nap here I come! But first, this week’s Q&A… Q:  “I need your help with a diet.  I have dieted before, lots of times, but want so ...

Do This BEFORE Your Workout

Did you do last week’s assignment?  Click here if you missed it… This week’s Assignment is very similar to last week, but we’re going to flip it.  I’m going to ask you to do a mini-circuit BEFORE your regular workout and am only giving you two categories - Core/Abs and Metabolic. Why? Because I said so. Kidding aside, it does have its purpose.  I’ve used this technique with a few of my clients (and most did ...

Fat Blasting Workout Finishers

Hey!  Woof, I don’t know about you, but we had a crazy packed weekend that all culminated with Andrea, Maren and I watching a collegiate gymnastics meet yesterday afternoon. Two things immediately came to mind… 1. Gymnasts are amazing.  I’m always in awe when watching gymnasts flip and fling their bodies all over the place (even when they face-plant!) 2. Hot dogs still taste good, but only for like 30 secon ...

How To Beat Workout Suckitis

So yesterday’s workout was not fun. Actually, “not fun” doesn’t begin to describe it. It wasn’t that the workout was too tough, or that I ramped the intensity up, I just didn’t “feel” it.  I was getting tired too quickly, wasn’t able to use the same amount of intensity and it felt like I was walking through quick sand. Have you ever felt like that during a workout? It happens to me from time to time and I k ...
