My three goals for every client-athlete are always the same:
Stay safe. Have fun. Get results.
Ultimately my wish is for you is to lead by example and inspire others to get healthy. But it begins with YOUR choices.
You choose to be healthy.
People want to be happy; however, the common approaches to nutrition and fitness make most feel frustrated.

Especially if it's the salted caramel kind. In a sugar cone.
Every so often I will enjoy a pint of frozen goodness after a tough resistance training workout.
Problem is, dairy makes me feel downright awful.
If I had a dollar for every excuse I've heard to rationalize an unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle, well, I'd have a lot of dollars.
It's no secret that we live in a world that is:
- "too busy" to exercise
- "too busy" to eat fresh, unprocessed foods ...
Smart training is an essential part of any fat-loss plan.
And when your workout program includes resistance training and metabolic conditioning, you can expect more muscle, an increase in resting metabolism, plus real-world strength and endurance....
Do you rely on willpower to "eat healthy" and make mindful nutrition choices?
