Why It’s Important To Know How Your Friends Would Describe You

2018-11-07T16:39:11+00:00

You can listen on Itunes, Soundcloud, or Youtube. If someone were to describe you in a word or a phrase what would they say? How would YOU describe yourself in a word or a phrase? I believe the bigger the gap between who we want to be and how other people perceive us is what causes inner conflict. Acknowledging that gap takes an immense amount of authenticity, humility, and self-awareness. Many won't stop for a second and even ask in the first place. Not me. For example, I would describe myself as "consistent" and "upbeat". I would bet that other people [...]

Why I Choose To Lose 20lbs ASAP!

2018-10-25T18:31:14+00:00

Nobody becomes obese or overweight overnight. It's a slow but inevitable increase in weight and decrease in physical activity. It happened to me during "dad bod season". That's what I call what happened to me during the last two years of our families growth. Two boys under two are no joke! Don't get me wrong, I wasn't terribly overweight but I knew I wasn't in the best shape that I believed I could be in. Here are the reasons I ultimately decided to lose 20lbs.. To practice what I preach Unfortunately, in the fitness industry first impressions are purely based on [...]

Learning to accept the inevitable change we call life

2018-08-06T18:34:29+00:00

People change, businesses come and go, and as we all have experienced we don't remain in peak physical fitness forever. When you allow yourself the space to anticipate the uncertainty that is life, you allow yourself options. By turning rigidity into flexibility prevents ourselves from getting tossed and turned by strong emotions like fear, anger, surprise, and disappointment. Although we are all likely to continue to feel these emotions they don't have to control us anymore. One of the most effective strategies I have used over the last year is called "negative visualization". Most people are familiar with positive visualization most [...]

My selfish reason for buying life insurance

2018-07-31T16:52:03+00:00

Not only is my wife way younger than me. #trophywife. I've done so many stupid things to my body when I was younger that there's no way I'm going to make it into my 80's. My wife, on the other hand, hasn't even smoked a cigarette. Not even third-hand smoke! She's definitely going to outlive me. These are the facts and I'm okay with that. In the instance, I die before my kids are old enough to take care of themselves I want to know that financially they don't have to worry.  I take a lot of pride in knowing that I'm [...]

Training for more than an 8-pack

2018-06-01T11:52:31+00:00

This is the real reason I focus on my fitness and health so much. I could care less about having an 8-pack. As long as I feel good and know I’m pushing my training on a daily basis, I am content. As much as wanting to be fit is a selfish act it is also a SELF-LESS act...because by taking care of myself FIRST I’m able to better take care of others. When Liam and Dawson get older I want to be able to do the things they can do. I want to be able to run with them when they [...]

A Lesson In Marriage I Learned From Building Furniture With My Wife

2018-04-17T20:01:35+00:00

"Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together." One rule my wife and I have when we buy things online is that when it arrives, we build it together. Since moving into our new home, we've built many things together. Although I do most of the grunt work, she is a fantastic helper. She even knows the difference between a flat head screwdriver and a Phillips head screwdriver! We get much pleasure building things together, especially when it's complete. There's' an extra warmness and meaning to a piece of furniture when you personally build it. On many [...]

We should all give meaning to life

2018-04-09T15:23:08+00:00

"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away." From my very first day as an entrepreneur, I've felt the only mission worth pursuing in business is to make people's lives better. In business,  I've done that every day for eight years by helping those in NEED improve their overall health through physical activity. Personally, this point of view came from a belief I had as a little kid. When I was about ten years old, I would rub my pillow at night with the back of my palm for an extra [...]

New Home, New Memories

2018-03-26T19:13:59+00:00

"Sometimes you never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory." This weekend we finally moved into our new house! With that comes mutual feelings of excitement for our new home and feelings of sadness leaving behind all the memories of our previous home. In our previous home, we got engaged, married, and had our first child. We learned how to be parents to a newborn, experienced our first hurricane as homeowners, and walked more laps around our community than I can count. The feeling I got locking the front door for the last time was one I've [...]

The Secret To Living Forever You May Already Be Doing

2018-03-16T16:44:57+00:00

"We do not remember days; we remember moments." I have a terrible memory. My wife can attest to that. For example, I've been taking lunch to work for years now, but every night before work I leave a note on the counter that says "Food." It's a daily reminder to get my lunch out of the fridge. Without that note, I forget my lunch every time. And to be honest, I'll probably never remember to bring my food to work. On the other hand, I have some moments ingrained in my head that I will never forget. Like when Liam was born. [...]

Learning About Success From Planting A Tree

2018-02-26T18:33:44+00:00

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”  When I first decided to go back to school to get my MBA Liam was just born, and I had a business that took up much of my attention and energy. I wasn't sure how I was going to make time for school, but I just knew it was something I had to do. As hard as the decision was at the time, I can't imagine trying to go back to school with a second child on the way and a business that is [...]
