During my last cheat day (The one day a week I get to eat whatever I want) I decided to measure out just how much of the Lucky Charms cereal I had just poured into the massive bowl I was using.
You see, throughout my years of loving cereal such as Lucky Charms I’d always seen the label, noticed that it was only 110 calories per serving, and gone to town, eating till my heart was content.
I figured each bowl of cereal I had was probably about 2 servings, not a big deal to me. It’s not like I had to worry about my weight or anything – I played sports from the time I was little all the way through college and was always extremely physically active. Continue reading
There are plenty of people out there who want to lose weight, but what about avoiding weight gain?
If you are sliding down a hill and want to go back up it wouldn’t the first step be to stop sliding?

I had a friend of mine message me a few days ago asking about my thoughts on supplements.
He had gone into Walgreens and had seen this daunting wall of supplements that they had on display and wondered what many of you have probably wondered – how do I make sense of this all?
With the vast amount of supplements out there it can be extremely difficult to make an informed decision on what to do – I understand this and, just like you, I’ve seen these types of displays at different stores in the past.
Today, I’ll help simplify things for you and give you my thoughts. Continue reading
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
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 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
