On the Road Again

I’ve decided to go back out on the road again as a professional truck driver. It’s not something I really wanted to do, but given the options available to me it was the best course of action. It’s popular in our social media age to talk about chasing dreams and following our passions. Sometimes it…

Day 13: Remember Your Why

Right about now, a lot of people are running into a wall with their fitness and nutrition programs and It’s okay. In my time as a trainer I fully expected and prepared for it. The soreness is probably catching up to you and it’s becoming very tempting to stay in bed instead of going to…

Day 6: So far So Good

It’s day 6 of the New Year. I hope everyone is having success with their resolutions. I started my own program a few days early so I’m on day number 8. I just wanted to check in and share some of my own observations at this point and also answer a few questions I’ve received…

"The Daily Stoic" a review

Today I am reviewing “The Daily Stoic” and “The Daily Stoic Journal, 366 days of writing and reflecting on the art of living.” These two books written by Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman are companion pieces originally released in late 2017. Stoicism was and is a philosophy popularized first by the ancient Greeks then more…

No Bullshit Strength

After 22 years of working out myself, using various tools and modalities and 12 years working as a professional strength and conditioning coach there is only 1 exercise I would recommend for those wanting the simplest most time effective workout: The Kettlebell Turkish Get-up. It’s a movement I both love and despise. I despise it…

Simplify for Health

In the previous article I talked about taking time to ask yourself some honest questions about your habits before beginning a new health and fitness program. Basically before you can fix what’s making you unhealthy you need to identify those unhealthy habits first. A lot of people smash headfirst into a new program on January…
