They lied to you and said it would be easy


They made you believe it was so easy to get in shape. They told you if you took this magic pill the weight would fall off. “As seen on TV” was the secret to a healthier life. Social Media lied to you. We won’t do that. We’ll tell you it's going to be hard. We'll tell you there will be days you won’t want to work out. We'll tell you to watch what you eat if you want to lose weight. We'll tell you this is a process, it won’t happen overnight. Because sometimes in life, we become so focused on [...]

My emotional intelligence results


This is by far the most important concept I've learned over the last few years. I always felt like my emotions were always out of control. One moment I was happy, the next moment I was pissed, the next morning I'd wake up depressed. I couldn't understand why. This book radically shaped my understanding of the purpose of emotions and how we can use them to our benefit. Take the free quiz! People with high emotional intelligence, aka emotional quotients, have strong relationships and are able to manage difficult situations calmly and effectively. They’re are most likely to be resilient in [...]

A great marriage is like a great fitness plan


It requires work, discipline, and constant feedback. Work The couch potato metaphor is used often when explaining the effectiveness of starting any fitness routine. It implies that no one has ever gotten in great shape by sitting on the sofa. It takes work, and it is that work over time that produces amazing results. It must also be challenging. That the at the work that we put in provides a challenge of some kind. It requires us to push beyond the boundaries of comfort but not so much that it destroys us. Improved fitness is weird like that, you have to [...]

The Most Logical HSPU Progression [video]


It’s one thing to know the importance of performing hspu’s but it’s a totally different thing to know how to perform them properly. Like all things in fitness, you must work for them to get better. This is the most logical progression to performed handstand pushups…. 1. Make sure you can consistently hold a static position upside down. Work 10–15 seconds at a time until you athlete can hold 60 seconds at a time. 2. Working through the concentric motion is the next step. Any depth is a great start. Focus on sets of 3–5 reps for a while at that [...]

The Secret to being FIT and Successful In Any Endeavor


I think the perception is that it’s easy for FIT people to workout. That that’s why they look so good because they have a PROPENSITY to love exercise. And for the general public, it provides a tough situation in wanting to produce the characteristics and habits of fit people. Becuase their idea is to be fit there must be a reason FIT people want to exercise all the time. That it’s just the way, they are. The only difference between the guy who chooses to sits on the couch after work and fit people is that they DECIDE they will not [...]

A Year Later…3 Tips to starting any business


A year later I still stand by what I say about what it takes to start any business… 1. Make sure the business you want to start is something you are PASSIONATE about. I don’t believe you wake up every morning completely and utterly immune to unhappiness because you are doing something you love to do. What I mean is that you have an immense interest in the field you are committing your life to doing. The work week is statistically getting longer and longer. Passion on average gives you purpose and drive to keep going when things get hard. 2. [...]

The Day I Almost Quit & Died


I had been training for a reverse sprint triathlon for many months leading up to the race. Early morning running workouts followed by cycling or swimming in the afternoon was the norm. All for this short race; 5k Run, 15mile Bike, 1/4 mile swim. The day began at five o'clock in the morning. My training partner and I checked in early before the rush of competitors came in. As we set everything up, I am amazed by the amount of money some people spend on bikes and accessories. Half an hour before the race we took a warmup up jog. I was so [...]

Cheerleaders Make Great Coaches


There's a trend in the fitness industry that bashes a coach for being too supportive. I disagree. If you look at the coaching Greats like John Wooden, Vince Lombardi, and Bill Walsh you will see characteristics of cheerleaders sprinkled into their coaching style. They knew how to get their athletes motivated by raising their voices, clapping their hands, and getting in their faces.   This wasn’t an end all be all to their coaching philosophy but used it when they felt like they needed to. Where this argument holds a smidge of substance is if the coach solely believes [...]
