Being Trained Sucks!

If there is one thing I can’t stand more than the lingering stench of a banana and that is being trained by a fitness trainer. I bet you think that is weird coming from a fitness professional right (wait for it). I just don’t see how someone could be pushed so hard to burn and sweat…..

Body Sculpting Reality Check

I want to work out but I just don't want to lose my butt. I want a bigger butt. I only want to lose fat in certain parts on my body. I want arms like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Blah, blah, blah...... Sound familiar? Keep reading.

Stop Your Darn Complaining!

That's right, I said it. There are individuals who I have talked to and heard them complaining about how they need to lose weight or gain muscle. Through the course of our conversation I found that they figured skipping meals or not eating after a certain time will help them with their weight loss/gain goals. People who want to gain muscle weight that I have talked to do not know how many calories they are eating, get real!

Clean That Plate!

Those words still vividly reverberate in my sub-conscience whenever I get a plate of food. If those words sound familiar to you, then you have had the same conditioning as a great majority of Americans.

Kickboxing VS Cardio Kickboxing

On this particular subject I have little to say because my latest video says it all. I was totally taken by the experience and I just had to find a better way. I knew to an extent what I was getting myself into but this totally took caught me off guard. Check it out at

Protein, Protein, Protein

I have heard many times in my 12 years of experience in the fitness industry people say they are afraid to take protein because it will bulk them up or they simply don't take the stuff. Well, why do you work out? If you do not take protein after tearing down your muscles, you are defeating the purpose of working out my misinformed friend.

Mind Muscle Connection, Yeah Right!

When most people hear the phrase: Mind and body connection, they think cliche. Well my friends, that phrase could be a cliche to those who have not applied it.

No Time To Work Out, I Have A Newborn Now (Busy)

Hello all. Firstly, I would like to apologise for the delay in my posts. Sorry to all that enjoy reading and gaining helpful insight to my thoughts.

Now that that is out of the way, secondly, I must say that in the beginning of our new born being home, finding time to workout was a struggle. Of course all our attention is targeted towards every aspect of the little one; cries, feeding, burping, diaper changing, and so on. Now add that onto working all day.
Yeah, I really had to find my equilibrium and get back to the gym. I did after about three weeks. Yes, our  whole schedule was shaken up, including finding time to keep up with my social media. All is equalized now. It just took time and patients.

I now hit the gym early in the morning before I go to work. No matter how many times my sleep gets interrupted by infant cries I still get up at the same time or a little earlier and hit the gym. I'm back baby! My point in telling you this is to let you know to not make excuses when it comes to gaining  better health. Yeah, I am a bit tired from the lack of sleep but I get 45 minutes of sleep in during lunch as it is vitally important to your health. Stay determined to be fit and let nothing stand in your way. We make time for things we want to do!

When I get home, I then have enough energy to help  settle the little one down. Remember to always make time for fitness.

As always, thank you for reading and for putting your health first.
