How To Embrace The Powerful Secret Weapon Inside You (Podcast #46)

How To Embrace The Powerful Secret Weapon Inside You.

There is REAL power deep inside you

I feel like I talk about this every single day… I also feel like it’s not really given the weight and consideration it deserves. “Belief” has incredible power and weight. Simply believing something hard enough can make it real. Yes, really. I’m saying that belief, attitude, and how you approach life can have real, physical manifestations. Don’t believe me? I’ve got some food for thought that might just change your mind…

Snake Oil and Deception in the Fitness World (Podcast #45)

snake oil and deception in the fitness world

I love what I do, and I take it seriously.

Fitness isn’t just narcissism, gym selfies, and aesthetics. For some people, it’s about very real, very important changes. Physical and emotional health and well-being could be at stake. This is important… crucial… and in some very extreme cases… even life or death. So naturally, while I do enjoy my job… I also take it very seriously. Which is why I have absolutely no tolerance for those who would play the system and play the people for a quick buck…

5 easy ways to have the best summer ever

You’ve noticed, I’m sure… that it’s now HOT out there.

Yes, friends… it’s SUMMER – a time of sweat, sunburns, and tourist traffic (depending on where you live). Air Conditioners nationwide are cranking up the cool while the beating sun cranks up the sunburns. It’s that time when seemingly everyone complains about the heat, even though we just got done complaining that we couldn’t wait for summer.

What if, though… instead of complaining… we just took steps to make this the best summer EVER? Wouldn’t THAT be great? I’ve got 5 easy ways you can do exactly that 🙂 (OK, so some might be a little more challenging than that…)

Does Your Gym REALLY Love You? (Podcast #42)

does your gym really love you

What stands out, really, in the fitness industry?

It’s a question I’m sure almost nobody thinks to ask, but I’m asking it. Does your gym really love you? And do YOU love it back? It’s weird, right? To think of it like that? What does that even mean? It’s a place with stuff you pick up and put down. A place with stuff you run on. You swipe a key card or fob or id badge or something and you do fitness-type stuff. Sometimes I go. Sometimes I don’t. Where’s the “love” in that?

Isn’t that the problem? SHOULDN’T there be more to it than that? Well, once again I’m reminded… Yes. There should be. And there is a place where that’s how it is.
