Health and Fitness Expert - Workplace Wellness Specialist
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.
Are you connected to your workout? Guess what, there is no app for that. If you want results in the gym, you need to buckle down, get focused and be part of your workout. Exercise needs to fit your time schedule. It needs to be fun, functional and effective.
My latest venture into the world of Workplace Wellness has me providing four seminars spaced 90 days apart. It's to give people targets and goals, then check back to see if they are hitting them and what results they are feeling.

I love my career, somewhere in the last decade people started calling me an expert. I stopped doing one-on-one training, and started creating programming for local gyms under my One Fit City banner. I noticed over the years three things people do that severely hinder their results.

I picked up the most recent issue of OK magazine: "100 Celebrity Diet Tips." I flipped through it and for the first time started to see a trend that I agree with. Here's what won't work for long term weight loss, and the list is short.

Do you do everything right and still no results? I have been a personal trainer for a decade now and help dozens of people lose 10,15, 50, and even more than 100lbs. The results come once these 6 problems get solved.

Are you as thin, healthy, fit or toned as you want to be? What if I told you getting where you want to be was pretty much a mathematical equation. There are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat, that is a scientific fact. To take one pound of fat off of your body you need to do one of two things, or a combination.

Doing things to improve your balance will also ensure you are healthy into your old age. Weight loss really is simple in concept. Eat healthy, fresh, local foods. Make sure that the products you chose spend as little time in storage as possible. Then, once you fuel your body, make sure you get out and enjoy the world around you. I call it fitness to make memories..

Fitness experts used to promise people a six-pack if we wanted to get them to buy something fitness related. The fitness of the nation has deteriorated so much that people know they are a long way from a six-pack. That's why the basis of weight loss company Visalus' top-tier success is a brand new "Project 10" program.

What is the best way to get fit? Try something new, and get your friends involved. It is built in adherence, and motivation. There is no replacing having someone waiting for you, or asking "what did you eat today?" Get solid information from trusted sources and start working it in to your routine.

I am not asking people to be perfect. Weight loss is all about getting the first 10 pounds off, finding motivation in the new energy, and the results. I am asking for smart decisions and to make getting to your cravings difficult. Have water close by, eat regularly to avoid sugar crashes and cravings for sugar, put fibre in your diet.

The UFC's promotion of MMA has kids very aware of the sport. It's starting to make its way into movies, television and mainstream clothing. Why is it good? Every pro MMA athlete I have trained, and been around does two things with meticulous precision. Eat clean and exercise regularly.

Oprah got Lance Armstrong to fess up, and I couldn't be happier. Not that I want to see anyone's career ruined, but because

The plan to battle back against overweight and obesity has to start with simplifying the answer. What works for me? That's the question people should be asking. If you don't like to work out, why do you want to look like someone who does?
