Are You Thinking About a Gym Membership?  (BIG News at the End)

Starting a gym membership, kind of intimidating right? Especially if it’s your first one. You might not know exactly what you’re doing, but you know you are there to improve your way of life. THAT is what’s important. The last thing on your mind needs to be worrying about what anybody else thinks of you while you are there. Believe it or not, I was that way when I first started going a few years

Are you eating ENOUGH to lose weight? 

Weird to think about, right? The less you eat the more weight you should lose. It only seems to make sense scientifically and logically. I’m not gonna lie, when I discovered this I was a bit baffled too.   We’ve had a few clients come to us in the last while who were already eating well under their maintenance level of calories, but for some reason still seemed to be having a hard time dropping

The Sacrifice of Counting Calories

Counting calories seems to get a bad wrap from the majority.  “It takes way too much time, I just want to eat my food, or I don’t want to have to worry about tracking it.”  I hear it all the time.  People always ask me what should they be eating in order to get in shape.  My answer always consists of just one word, “FOOD.” After a long blank stare from my response they seem

CARDIO.. How much, when, and why?

I see it everyday..  As I walk through the gym and glance into the cardio room, I see the swarm of cardio bunnies sweating their buns off. And I wonder to myself, “Are they doing that because they enjoy it?  Or are they doing it because they feel they HAVE to in order to look better?”  Now, I know there a lot of people out there that enjoy running and enjoy doing lots of cardio, but if you are anything like myself, you DEFINITELY

You are unique, don’t copy someone else

Social media has done a lot for the fitness industry in the past few years.  Good and bad. It has definitely helped people find inspiration to help them reach their goals, but there’s also a huge problem with this. Not everyone out there is actually what they are all hyped up to be.

I get it. It all makes sense in your head.  The more cardio you do, the more calories you’ll burn, which will
