I was talking with one of my clients today and she was really down in the dumps.
She started working out again recently and after losing some weight the first week she ended up gaining a couple of pounds in the next week – this was very upsetting to her.
She had tried losing weight before, had some success, and then fallen off. She felt like her hard work wasn’t paying off and she thought it was hopeless for her to actually eat healthier and make the changes she knew she needed to make. Continue reading
We all have different amounts of time we would like to spend on exercise, but this variation can create some difficulties. The biggest problem that arises from our varied lifestyles is deciding what type and how much exercise will give … Continue reading
One of my clients really wasn’t feeling too great this week.
He was dealing with some stomach issues, nothing serious, but contemplated cancelling a session to just take it easy for a day.
This is a common thing for many people – we don’t feel 100% so we skip a workout. I without a doubt have those days. Feeling tired, worn out, and just wanting to relax I’ll sometimes skip workouts – I’ll admit to it, I’m human. Continue reading
Ah yes, back to my favorite topic – interval training.
If you haven’t already found this out, interval training is one of the best ways to burn fat and get fit.
The higher the intensity of these intervals the better results you will get from them – makes sense of course.
Nearly all of my clients will do some type of high intensity interval training based on their ability level. Continue reading

I always seem to get the same, discouraged, look when I tell my clients we are doing push ups.
This is understandable – push ups are difficult for a lot of people, especially beginners and women, so of course people are hesitant.
However, the benefits of push ups are too great not to include them in your own workout program – regardless of your ability level. Continue reading
I just finished up a rather intense metabolic resistance training session.
For this particular session these are the exercises I used:
Dumbbell Squat to a Dumbbell Shoulder Press to a Dumbbell Reverse Lunge
I did these in a circuit with no rest between exercises and about 60 seconds of rest between each circuit.
By the time I had finished 5 of these circuits I was sweating buckets and the entire workout had only lasted about 20 minutes. Continue reading

You’re busy – I get that.
You don’t have the time to spend 2 hours a day in the gym – nor do you probably want to.
You still want to get in better shape – lose body fat, drop the weight that has been creeping up on you the last few weeks, months, or years, but what should you do?
How should you exercise if you simply don’t have that much time to commit?
To describe it in one word I’d say this – efficiently. Continue reading

In the last few weeks I’ve been transitioning from living in Green Bay to living in Milwaukee and with this transition of course comes the task of moving all of my clothes, furniture, bed, and other possessions.
Luckily, I had a good friend of mine with a truck help me transport my bed back to Milwaukee and also another friend of mine help me carry things to my car making the daunting task of moving a bit less daunting.
Today, I just finished up moving my 500+ pounds worth of weights and weight training equipment. Continue reading
