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.

Don't Let Your Low Energy Become the Norm

(0) Comments | Posted October 30, 2014 | 4:55 PM

Why do we accept low quality? The more I speak at workplaces, the more I'm convinced that headaches and low energy have become an accepted part of life. This has me perplexed.

If a bank was being robbed and you called the police saying there are alarms ringing at the...

If You Want to Get Healthy, Start With the Fundamentals

(3) Comments | Posted October 24, 2014 | 11:56 PM

Fundamentals are strangely something in this world that we glaze over. The basics, the building blocks, the ground work that will create a project or building that is unshakable. Yet, we put very little time and effort into mastering those fundamentals.

We want the result, but don't want to put...

This may come across as "preachy," but I've seen the inside of a lot of large businesses. More than 50 per cent of our population is overweight and obese. We die from things that the medical community has labeled "preventable," and our inability to be kind and considerate...

The Secret to Being More Productive At Work Doesn't Involve Work

(1) Comments | Posted October 9, 2014 | 2:24 PM

There is no one answer, path, or perfect plan when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. This is the problem I'm finding. Too many experts, too many articles, and too many people with good intentions.

I've been very fortunate in my career to have contact with hundreds of...

Are You Guilty of This All-Inclusive Vacation Habit?

I live in one of the greatest Cities in the world, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It's a prairie city, so it gets cold. Real cold.

If you are an employer you'll get this blog. Absent employees, present but unable to work at max output, sick, stressed, low energy, our workforce is getting sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Don't Work Out to Look Sexy

(2) Comments | Posted September 17, 2014 | 9:02 AM

Healthy living conversations need a make over. Our vision is skewed and our motives lack staying power. Our goals are set by wanting to be sexy, not by wanting to be healthy. Sexy takes way more work than most people are willing to give. Sexy also isn't necessary. Depriving yourself...
