The “Magic” Debit Card

Today, I'm going tell you a story about when I was a little kid and how it relates to infomercials, fitness products, Facebook wonder ads, most supplements, and so on and so forth. When I was little, my parents had this magic card (this sucker really amazed me)! Every once in awhile, when my mom needed money, she would get this magic card and put it into this big box thing via a special slot, push a couple of buttons and...

Is Your Workout Program Boring?

Yesterday, we went to Broadway By The Beach, some of you may have noticed if you follow me at all on social media :-). It was honestly a great time and it was pretty hilarious too. There were so many “shiny” things to pull at our attention. They have an upside down skyscraper, with upside down trees. Axel got super confused, “How can a building could become upside down?” I even got him on video trying to explain how he thought it occurred. In his mind, a tornado had swept by, lifted up this giant building and place it...

Kenna’s B-Day Gift Shattered Into a Million Pieces…

For Kenna’s Birthday we got her a Hatchable. Kenna absolutely loves it. For those who don't know what a Hatchable is, it's a fury animal that comes in an egg and when you rub it and take care of it for 15-20 minutes it hatches, it literally pops out of an eggshell. Kenna was super excited about it. She was rubbing it, it was glowing, shaking, it was even talking, the thing really made you feel like a mother. However, Kenna then decided to put Hatchable into her dress and rub it because the Hatchable quote-unquote liked that. She said...

Beware! Doctor warns Spanx are making your tummy and butt soft and squishy!

As most of you know, the fam and I are at the beach for Kenna’s 4th birthday. Vacations are great, you get to relax, slow down, and wake up at the crack of dawn because you have a 5 and 4 year old who refuse to relax and slow down lol ;-). Any way, I was up “supervising” and by supervising I mean drinking coffee and watching the news when I saw an interview with a doctor that got my attention. It was about the danger of wearing “Spanx’s!” Sorry, you probably just spit out your coffee or tea, I...

You can impact your future TODAY!!!

On Sunday it is Kenna’s birthday, she turns 4 ;-)! When we asked her what she wanted she said, “My want to go to the beach!” So we are going to the beach, which is perfect timing because next week the studio is closed. Once a quarter the place closes down because a little rest is good for all involved ;-). On Wednesday I talked about your confidence when it comes to your future. This made me think about some things in the past that were totally missed. Here are a few famous mistakes. In 1962 Decca Recording Company rejected the...

The all mighty Cardio Myth!!!

The cardio myth is super simple and seems 100% possible, which is why it makes for a great myth ;-). The basic tenet goes like this: Do only cardio to lose fat. This is simply not true! First, you can do all the cardio in the world and if you aren’t in a caloric deficit it won’t matter. If you eat more food than your body needs you won’t lose weight. Second, yes, cardio can enhance fat loss. Why?  Cardio when done correctly allows you to burn more calories and can even help speed up your metabolism. Both of which will help you...

Are You Confident About Your Future?

Yesterday, I listened to a Podcast and it talked about Futurologists. I had no idea that was thing, basically they are people who try and predict the future. Seems like that would be a fun job to me. I imagine they get consulted to help create shows for Star Trek and other sci-fi genre stuff. One of the more interesting predictions is that some babies born today, will live to the age of 150. On the outset that sounds pretty epic, but it made me think. Do I even want to live that long? I think it would greatly depend on...

Some perspective from a weight loss client named Dee.

I got this note from an epic client named Dee. Dee has always been into working out and being fit and at one point in her life she got down to 15% body fat. Then she got a “great” job and was super busy, she slowly over time gained some weight. Then one day she woke up and decided she was sick of it and proceeded to lose 50 lbs and get back to her ideal self. With Dee’s back story in mind this is the note she sent me. “I heard this song ‘Slow Fade’ by Casting Crowns on my...

Sorry! I didn’t think to share this crazy awesome find until today…..

I am a little embarrassed I didn’t think to send this out on Monday. Sometimes I can be a real bone head ;-). On Sunday, we were killing some time in the Wal-Mart off on Hanes Mall Blvd, in Winston-Salem  while my wife’s van was getting its oil changed. While we were walking around I saw an amazing deal on Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells. You can get these Dumbbells (assuming they are still available) for $138.00 dollars, normally $299.99! If I didn’t have a personal training studio in my house, I would buy these in a heartbeat! 90% of my...

Having a reason WHY and an immovable DEADLINE is HUGE!

Happy Monday, today we are celebrating Mandy Loggains! Mandy started her fitness journey 9 weeks ago at a weight of 237. The big motivator for Mandy was she wanted to join the police or sheriff department. To accomplish this goal Mandy knew she had to lose some weight and get fit. Generally, I like to wait 12 weeks or so before we celebrate a success story, but Mandy is killing it. As of Mandy’s last check-in, she was down to 216. Yes, this means Mandy was lost over 20 lbs in 9 short weeks. The best part is, Mandy is fitter...

A sad but powerful story about 6 year old Hattie May Wiatt

Today I am going to share with you a pretty powerful story about a little girl who made a huge impact in her community and the world simply because she was willing to share and sacrifice. It is a little sad, but powerful! I found this story while listening to the Bible in One Year App. here is the story: Hattie May Wiatt, a six-year-old girl, lived near Grace Baptist Church in Philadelphia, USA. The Sunday school was very crowded. Russell H. Conwell, the minister, told her that one day they would have buildings big enough to allow everyone to attend....

Confession…I ate Peanut Butter Pie and a Brownie…AND…I LOST WEIGHT!

So last night, my wife and went our Community Group Dinner. Every Tuesday there is a group of us from Winston-Salem who attend Mercy Hill Church and we hang out, talk about life, etc… If you would like to check it out just rely and let me know. I would love to bring you as my guest ;-). Any way, last night we had our monthly dinner and at that dinner I ate peanut butter pie and half a brownie. I also had rotisserie chicken, mashed potatoes, and a small roll. Guess what...

Will Weight Loss Make You Happy?

My awesome wife, Beth, like’s to care for flowers. As result, we have 7 kinds of various plants inside of the house. The one that I think is the most unique is one that only blooms when it is under stress and deprived of water. We actually have two of these plants, see the photo below. The one that is under stress is blooming awesomely, but the one that is “healthy” just looks mundane. This made me think about humanity. How many of us look like we have it all together? On the outside we are kicking butt and taking names....

Lindsey lost 18 lbs and she lives 4 hours away…

This last weekend we went to the Zoo. It was epic, all the animals were out and about. It has been so raining for so long I think everyone was ready for some sunshine, especially my kids. The only issue I have with the Zoo is it is an hour away, which makes for a 2 hour round trip. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could just teleport there like in Star Trek? Likewise, wouldn't it be awesome if you could just teleport to a training session instead of having to drive there? Imagine the time you would save! With that...

Six Fundamental Truths of Getting and Staying Lean.

I just got off the phone with a supplement salesman who wants me to invest in buying some supplements to sell to my clients. I currently sell ZERO supplements to my clients because the truth of the matter is 99.9% of the supplements out there are just expensive pee and worthless. In fact, there are only three that I currently recommend, protein, caffeine, and creatine. You can get protein from meat or even protein powder (I use and recommend Quest protein), you can get caffeine from coffee or tea (I like Earl Grey), and creatine you can only get as...

Scale stopped moving?

Do you freak out when you are eating right and working out and the scale just stops moving down? If you said, “No” you are either a liar lol, or a dude who is trying to pack on the pounds. I got a message from one of my clients who was worried because her weight loss had slowed down after the course of 4 weeks. In the first 4 weeks she had lost 10 lbs, which was 7.5% of her total weight, which is really good. Now, in week 5, she has been stuck at the same number all week and...
