Free Resource: Fitness For Life TV

Early this year I was in my office brainstorming about what I could do to serve my clients better.  As I did, an idea came to me for an online video channel that contained short videos containing information that would help them get better and faster results from their program.  As I contemplated whether I could do this, I realized that the time it would take to film, edit and upload the videos would be more than I could...

The Story I Told to 1 Million People on Television

Earlier this month I was featured on a National Television show for the first time.  The reason they put me on was so I could share the story of how I met Dr. Paul Hambrick. You probably have no idea who that is, but to me, Dr. Hambrick was a Godsend.  Here’s why.  In March of 2007, I was beginning to sense that I needed to put more focus on my Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) practice and less on my personal training practice,...

Controversial “Miracle Molecule” Gets an Unbiased Review

This week one of my clients brought in an article that she copied from a recent issue of Consumer Reports.  She knew I'd be interested in it because the article was about a somewhat new and somewhat controversial supplement that many call miraculous, including me. If you read my newsletters regularly you know that I am a big fan of Cannabidiol, also known as CBD.  I have been taking this product for many months and I have recommended this product to nearly every client I work with.  I've had tremendously...

Latest Research on How Sitting Makes Us Age Faster

Can you remember the last time you had a day where you had to sit more than you're used to?  Maybe it was on a long plane or car ride.  Maybe it was at an all day conference. Maybe it was during a time when you were sick and you didn't have the energy to do much else. I know for me, when I have those days, I really feel it. Well, in addition to it making you feel more tired, making your muscles feel stiff and sore...

My Crazy…and Awesome Pneumonia Story

On Friday June 7th 2019, I went to bed feeling totally normal other than I had a slight chill.  The next morning, I woke up and I could barely move.  It was like all the energy got sucked right out of my body.  Being that I'm extremely healthy and take very good care of myself, I didn't suspect that it could be anything that serious.  I figured I just had a bug. I pushed myself to do whatever I could do that day but EVERYTHING was...

Optimal Exercises For Heart, Lung and Brain Health

First off let me thank all of you who so kindly reached out to me after you read my last newsletter.  In it I announced that I had been diagnosed with a serious case of pneumonia on June 10th. Well, it's 20 days later and I'm happy to report that I'm doing fantastic!  I'm back to work, I'm back to working out (and doing it quite intensely) and I'm really starting to feel like my old self again. I was also blessed to not have to spend any time...

What a Crazy Week It’s Been!

This has sure been a crazy week.  Last Friday night (6/7) I went to bed feeling perfectly fine and Saturday morning I woke up feeling like every ounce of available energy had been sucked out of my body.  I could barely move or talk. I pushed myself to do as much of my normal routine as I could, hoping that this would pass, but it didn't.  Finally after 3 days of hard fighting I finally gave in and saw a doctor.  I don't do that very...

Yale Says This Can Make You Happier Than Money

I think it's safe to say that most people know exercise is good for their physical health. However, the benefits don't stop there.  Studies show that exercise (when done right) also holds the key to better hormone and neurotransmitter balance, which dramatically affects mood and energy.  But how much of a difference does it really make? That's what teams of researchers at Yale University and Oxford University recently attempted to discover.  In the studies, they collected physical activity and mental mood data from...

Harvard Scientists Says This Can Delay Healing

I feel amazing.  I just got home from the gym after doing some range of motion and activation exercises for my lower body, along with some cardio.  Then as I was sitting here at my desk, I did a few more exercises, this time for my neck and shoulders.  All I can say is wow.  It feels like my whole body has come alive.  I can even feel the added blood flow to my brain. I love it! It's so fitting that I had these experiences today because...
