My personal goal is to help clients create long-term results! One of the biggest challenges I face as a personal trainer is teaching my clients to think long term and not expect immediate results. This doesn’t mean that they won’t see result in the short term, but helps them to create the mindset for their long-term success.
I was just talking to a friend yesterday and he told me he’s at his heaviest weight in his life. He went on to tell me what that he wanted to lose weight and get back in shape (which I heard a couple times in the last year) and then told me the things he […]

Here’s my 3rd video where I focus on the importance of trying different diets and eating programs and their importance in creating a healthy lifestyle! Check it out and let me know what you think?
Accepting where you are at gives you a starting point. For example: If you have 50 pounds to lose, are out of shape and your health is not good… this is your reality. It can’t be denied… it is truth! I’m not trying to be insensitive here. I know how challenging it is of accepting this reality, and the courage it takes to do so, but it’s very important because it gives you the starting point of where your at, and allows you to set a goal to where you want to be.

When you do an exercise for the first time, start slow and allow your body to feel the muscle (s) being worked through the entire movement. Focus your mind on nothing but feeling the muscle. When you do this, you are giving the body the opportunity to contract the muscle(s) being worked and figure out how to correctly do the exercise. This is also how you start to connect the mind and body and how you target the muscles that are suppose to be worked.
I know this is an extreme title, but what I’m going to talk about here is important. In the United States obesity has become an epidemic. Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index study in 2009 found 63.1% of adults are obese or over weight. This means that at least 6 out of 10 adults are overweight! There are about 32% of children who are overweight in our country, that’s 3 out of 10 kids! If things continue the way they are, this means that 3 more out of these 10 kids will become over weight or obese at some point in their life, and these numbers are on the rise. These numbers are scary and can be changed if we start to teach and educate our kids on eating healthy and being active at an early age.
Here is a 10-minute video about being successful and the evolving process to do so! The hardest part about being successful is starting out. I am using this video as an example. This is my first video. It wasn’t planned… I jumped in and got it done! I could have done it a few times […]

Here a video I created that focuses on the importance of diet for losing weight.

What comes to mind when you hear the word failure? You most likely think of something negative like not reaching a goal, failing a test, or maybe even you’re a loser, etc…. We are taught in our society that failure is negative and it’s not acceptable. I am here to tell you it is acceptable […]
Patience is essential in working toward any goal in life. We live in a society that expects to see results right away, and when we don’t we give up and never achieve our goal. We are constantly bombarded with TV ads about achieving results quickly and with little effort, and this is the main reason why many fail.
