Journey to Optimal Health and Fitness

I’ve worked in the field of Health and Fitness for the past 25 years. From personal training my first client after graduating high school and sitting for my first ACE certification, to corporate health and wellness, to sports performance, I’ve experienced a lot over the past 25 years. I’ve been an amateur bodybuilder, a nationally ranked strongman, competed in mixed martial arts, and competed in powerlifting. I’ve experienced almost every diet known, from juice cleanses to fasting to keto to Macro, I’ve tried most. What I’ve found over these years is that the human body is a fantastic marvel that can adapt to almost any change. After years of sharing knowledge and continued learning, I’ve seen my own personal highs and lows. I now have acknowledged my continued quest as a journey to optimal health and fitness. Through learning about my pitfalls and personal issues, I’ve realized that the power lies within. Addressing your issues, and seeking support where necessary, anything is possible. I have also begun a new regime based off of custom nutrient testing which has lead me to a custom matrix of vitamins and minerals designed to uniquely and specifically provide me with the key support to help me reach my optimal levels of health.

I look forward to hearing your comments and questions!

Fit for Life

Are you training to be a professional athlete? Are you competing in some physical event? Do you train for aesthetics or strength? Do you train for your health?

Most of my adult clients train for life. They have committed to a lifestyle of health and happiness. This may involve a regular exercise routine, better eating strategies, improving their sleep quality, and seeking ways to incorporate fun into daily life.

Try this daily challenge for 7 days. At the end of 7 days let me know how you feel.

Follow the Fit For Life routine listed below 2-3 times per day before you eat.

Set a timer for 5 minutes.                                                                                                                              Complete as many rounds as possible with good technique. Modify your positions to match your level and adjust as needed.                                                                                                                                                            Start slowly and move more quickly only when you have good control.

10x squats

10x push ups

10x ab brace

10x overhead reach and breathe

It’s that simple. And what may you ask are the benefits? Better digestion, better mood, increased calorie burn, increased oxygen uptake, improved strength are just a few of the benefits you gain from this simple routine.

Work In Progress

hammer-anvil

Tonight I have spent time editing and revising content for this website. It is definitely not a strength of mine, but I’m working through it. It has come to my attention in the recent months that I do my best when I am learning and growing. For me that means that it is time to be placed in the fire and forged. On the anvil I am hammered, bent, shaped, and beaten. Through the fire I am made, folded and strengthened. Quenched then sharpened to a razor edge. There are times when it is I who wield the hammer, but for now it is life that handles it. Decide today where you are. Are you being forged and made stronger or are you creating and building those around you. Either way, know that the direction of movement must always be forward. Our eyes are set in the direction of our purpose and that is not behind us.
