People forgot how to have fun. My mission is to make this Nation healthier One Fit City at a time. Add a little fun to functional training, and introduce regular people to sport specific training and we have a recipe for success. Done smart, and over time, we can turn this nation into aspiring athletes(or at least healthier arm chair quarterbacks). A degree in Kinesology and Applied Health and work with everything from Couch Potatoes Pro Athletes over the past decade is my key to battling Obesity and Inactivity.

(2) Comments | Posted May 7, 2015 | 12:14 PM

Ever think your workplace needs group therapy?

You are not alone if you say "yes." Now imagine two scenarios for me.

1) You haven't stepped away from your desk in three hours, it's about 1:30 in the afternoon and you worked right through lunch. You skipped breakfast and grabbed...

Focus on Health Instead of a "Beach Body"

(1) Comments | Posted March 17, 2015 | 9:14 AM

The "summer body" season is coming. This is when I started to feel ashamed of the health industry.

You are going to be bombarded with tips to lose weight. They will all work.

However they miss the mark on three fronts:

1) They are not sustainable

An Easy Formula To Stay Healthy

(0) Comments | Posted March 16, 2015 | 2:39 PM

The gym has become exercise.

Diet means restriction.

Food became the thing that makes us fat or skinny, not fuel.

Becoming health-conscious mean weight loss.

Are You a Bully?

If there was an 8-year-old in the next room, and they over heard you talk about your co-workers, spouse, friends, other family members, what would they hear?

I love the pink shirts, and the #BullyingAwareness tweets. But what have we changed?

Let me explain.

Deflated balls or not, we are a society that over consumes.

Social media is fast becoming my best friend. It's making it easy to show people in a visual how to be healthy.

I can take concepts, and break them down through photos and videos. This makes it easy for people to get ideas and stay motivated.

Stay Healthy to Enjoy Life, Not to Get a Six-Pack

Somewhere along the way, we lost the soul of what food and activity was.

Every time I go to a workplace to do a seminar, or work with kids I see it spiral out of control a little more. Three things break my heart, and I'm doing everything I can...

The Food You Eat Powers Your Body, So Choose Wisely

(3) Comments | Posted January 6, 2015 | 4:18 PM

If you make a resolution in the typical style, you'll fail. If 2015 truly is the year you want to be healthy, make it a lifestyle.

New year's resolutions have the best intentions, with the worst type of planning. More often than not, it's an emergency type situation.

Try These Low Maintenance, Healthy Recipes To Start Your Day Off Right

(0) Comments | Posted December 22, 2014 | 4:37 AM

Somehow, without any scientific backing, we have blacklisted carbs, overloaded on protein, alienated fat, and decided that water doesn't taste good unless we put sugar, fake sugar and colour in it.

I think it's because the human race has gone crazy. Being overweight became a huge fear of ours. The...
