One of the biggest challenges I see many folks struggling with is what I call the "Big Balancing Act."
Balancing today's needs with your long-term vision and goals.
Let's assume I'm talking about you for a moment.
You know you need to invest in...
Today's lesson is different.
Rather than talk about the usual things, like why detox diets will only frustrate you, I'll discuss racism.
And perhaps a simple way to end it once and for all.
Sorry, but I just need to weigh in on how I feel.

They keep evolving their healthy habits and making things 1% better.
And they do this over and over again.
If you look at...

Dropping unwanted pounds is a battle.
At least two-thirds of the U.S. population is struggling with being overweight or obese.

This might be your current situation.
Especially since many globo gyms have closed, which is forcing you to get creative and train at home.
Ever notice if your day gets started off rough, it often sets the tone for the rest of the day.
However, it doesn't have to be this way.
Stop trying to be perfect. Nobody is.
Stop believing that if you don't have time for a gym workout and three...
In my 20s, I had the honor of meeting Bo Jackson in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
One of my clients saw the picture below (scroll to the bottom of the page) and said, "Bo Knows Joe."
I thought that was a good one.

I’m going to ask you to do something a little weird right now.
I want you to imagine your favorite, most decadent thing to eat.
Maybe it’s a too-thick wedge of double-chocolate cake chased with an ice-cold cup of almond milk.
It may seem like today was just like yesterday.
But it wasn’t. It was completely different.
You see, every day is unique.
Appearances can be deceiving—and almost always are.
There may be times when things seem to be going along...
When it comes to weight loss, what you do on your average day matters more than what you do on your best day.
If you want to drop unwanted bodyfat, be sure that you’re not continually spending more time thinking about what to do rather than...
I received an email from a client who is really struggling with anxiety and depression.
"Joe, I don’t know what I can look forward to."

Maybe you remember it.
I sure do.
I remember a few years back when the thought of shopping online was something my parents wouldn't even consider.
They couldn't trust putting their information into websites.

Get busy living or get busy dying.
In other words you can be proactive about your health or you can be reactive once your doctor discovers a problem.
When it comes to your health, it's better to be proactive.
But whatever you’re going...
When stress levels are high, you must find productive ways to decompress.
So I have a suggestion.
Take a brisk 10-minute walk when you need to de-frazzle your nerves.
One of the most undervalued (and often times disregarded) advantages...
My general rule-of-thumb is to eat your calories versus drinking them.
An exception to the rule is a meal-replacement shake.
So you would choose to eat an actual orange versus drinking processed orange juice.

Today I have a story that, as a coach, baffles me a little.
But first, ever wonder what to eat before a workout?
A good pre-workout meal should meet the following requirements:
