The FitsPRO Podcast episode six is for my fellow fitspros, biz owners or those who WANT to own their own business. I never set out to be a business owner. In fact I prefer working on a team, behind the scenes. But here I am, four years deep with A LOT of lessons learned, and […]

Train, eat well, and be joyful during the holidays. The holidays bring stress from social pressures, financial pressures, the feeling that you need to have accomplished something spectacular by the time the new year rolls around. It’s an event filled, alcohol consuming, schedule ruining, and sweets overloaded time of year. With all that said, the […]

Batching – get more done in less time for the same result? One of my first mentors, Marie Forleo, introduced me to this time saving, result making tactic. But it wasn’t until about a year ago that I implemented with max effort. Apply Batching and Enjoy Feeling Sane Again The schedule-winning tactic is known as […]

If you’re in this for the long haul, you know that you’ll have breaks in your training. You’ll get sick, injured, or life will be too much and you’ll fall off course a bit. It all happens. It’s naive to think it won’t. So how about being prepared for the breaks instead of discouraged by […]

“Do you prescribe what weights to use in this program?” This is one of the most common questions I get as a remote strength coach. The answer? No. I rarely prescribe specific weights; and definitely not for non personalized programs. That doesn’t mean I can’t help you determine what weights to be using. I’ve got […]

There’s a lot of talk these days about the suppression of women. This is undoubtedly a sensitive subject. And I’d be naive, maybe even ignorant, to think this post won’t ruffle some tail feathers. Fact of the matter is, I’ve got some thoughts on the subject and this is my blog. So here we are. […]

There is no manual on gym etiquette. But there are certainly some unwritten rules that one should follow. In my world travels I have had quite a few experiences in the gym that break the code and would certainly be against public gym etiquette. I’ve always been a stickler for respect and following the rules, in […]

Working Harder + Smarter I grew up in a very hard working household; but it was not one of high or even middle class income. For me, working hard was something you did because it was expected, and it was a part of your character. We were proud to be hard workers. But working hard […]

I give you permission to conquer this fear I’ve been lifting in a different country, with different customs, different gym etiquette, different metric system and different equipment all together.  In the midst of all this, YOU game to mind. Yes YOU. Through my 10+ years of weight room experience – from the YMCA, to crossfit, […]
