You Want It, Then Go For It

There will always be someone who puts you down, expects more of you or disapproves of how you live life. Sometimes it is even the people closest to you, that’s ok because it teaches a lesson that everyone deserves to learn. Not everyone will support you. Honestly, they do not need to because it only […]

Fight or flight

Something that I don’t talk about on here a lot is the fight or flight response you get from anxiety, panic attacks, confrontation in addition to other stimuli. A notion that everyone is very familiar with, but think is straightforward you are a fight or flight person, rarely both. However, there is a little more […]

Change Points

Some say celebrations are only for the major milestones in life or public victories. In a sense that is true, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, marriages, holidays and awards, to name a few are all moments in time that we celebrate. Yet, in my opinion, the little things and private victories deserve their moment. Not in the […]

CArdio…?

In my years of training and now coaching one thing hasn’t changed it’s peoples dislike of cardiovascular training because of the all the trivial information surrounding the subject.

To Track or Not to Track

Over the past few weeks, a lot of new research talks about calories and macronutrients tracking. A notion I have a love-hate relationship with even though it works wonders when done right.

Labels?

Recently I have been thinking a lot about dietary labels and the negative/positive connotations set for them. As someone who believes labels are overrated, it is amazing and sad to see the stories people have created in their mind based on other diets.
