Fat Loss and Cardio – Revisited

It’s been too long since I put up a blog post.  During this layoff from actually putting up posts, I’ve also started a post about the Twinkie Diet, how we learn information, Neurotransmitters and Brain function, Thyroid conditions and how sometimes You just have to work harder than the average person to get the things you want.  Some of those posts, I just need some quiet time to sit down… Continue reading

Things I Learned This Week ~ 11/20/10

Usually, I have a list of things that I at least found interesting and would like to share, but this week I only have one question:  Are you taking the actions you need to get the results you want?

The bottom line is that studies have continuously shown that although choices are good for “freedom” the shear amount of choices that we encounter and will continue to encounter steer us not… Continue reading

Things I Learned This Week ~ 11/14/10

Have you ever felt like you were so close to having completed something but you’re just missing one piece to the puzzle?  The only problem is that you’re not quite sure what that piece is.  For me, I’ve been working on a number of things over the past couple of years.  Some intentional, some because they just naturally interest me and some by complete happenstance and randomness.  This week, has… Continue reading

Why I’m in the Fitness Field

In my personal training business, I say that “Results are Guaranteed.”  When I say that though, what “Results” am I talking about?

Willpower and Exercise

Will power.

Such a funny concept.

For some people change and sticking to exercise is all about will power.  For others, will power is an outdated concept that misses the whole point of true desire.  If you truly desire something, then you don’t need “self-discipline” as the actions will come about naturally.

Why NOW is the BEST time to start Training!

Why NOW is the BEST time to start Training!

Every year it’s the same thing.

“Oh, I’m going to wait until after the holidays to start training.”

And every year, I sit down just shaking my head.  What I’m thinking is, “So what you’re saying is you want to A – Gain another 5- 10 pounds of fat and B – Do it willingly before you start working out?  That’s what you’re saying?”  I usually don’t say… Continue reading
