I have most of my fat loss clients doing HIIT training. ALL of my fat loss clients are losing unwanted fat, and losing it fast. Much of their success has to do with making the right diet choices; the rest has to do with hard work. Along with a good and efficient resistance-training program, I integrate HIIT into their programming each week. The results are awesome. To see the “how and why” of doing HIIT, check out a previous blog article about it here. Read the rest of this entry »
The Tale of Two “Skinny Kids” High school kids have been coming up to me for years asking the same old questions…”what should I eat?” “Does this supplement work” and “How do I get big?” A little over two months ago, two high school athletes both approached me at different times, each asking the same questions. Each wanting to get “big!” Since neither had the time to sign up for continuous training sessions with me, I gave them both what I consider the best source on the market for getting “big” fast. I led each of them to Muscle Gaining Secrets, from Jason Ferruggia. Read the rest of this entry »
The pain of war cannot exceed
The woe of aftermath,
The drums will shake the castle wall,
The ring wraiths ride in black, ride on.
Sing as you raise your bow,
Shoot straighter than before.
No comfort has the fire at night
That lights the face so cold.
Oh dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the mornin light.
The magic runes are writ in gold
To bring the balance back, bring it back.
At last the sun is shining, the clouds of blue roll by,
With flames from the dragon of darkness
The sunlight blinds his eyes.
-The Battle Of Evermore
They come to battle with their war face on, ready for anything, ready to give everything they have, no matter what. This is their promise to you, their war-master, their general…the person that will prepare and throw them into the fight of their lives. Although you try to quell their enthusiasm a bit and remind them of the tough battle ahead, they continue to promise “I will do whatever it takes” “Work me as hard as you can” “What ever I need to do, consider it done!” These promises go on and on, with incredible optimism and fervor.

As a fitness coach, I see a lot of success in the people I work with. Some lose a huge amount of body fat, some gain a bunch of rock hard muscle, others get their cholesterol down, while getting the heart in the best shape ever. Total health improvements, physique improvements, energy levels go way up, etc… Very seldom do I see failures with people I work with. To be honest, I really cannot sit here and talk about any clients, athletes or otherwise that have failed while working with me. That is not necessarily me being great at what I do, but rather having great people that work my plan the way I want it worked. When that happens, success happens. It’s that simple. Its about commitment, refinements, and constant action. Read the rest of this entry »
High Intensity Interval Training HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training…Explained
I recently wrote a little about HIIT, and about how much I love it… and how much it has changed the way I work out… and how much it has changed the way other people shed fat and keep in condition. What I didn’t explain very well if at all, is what HIIT is and how you go about implementing it into you workout and life.
Without getting deep into the exercise physiology of the thing, I will do a little back log into the WHAT, HOW and WHY of HIIT. Read the rest of this entry »
Quest for Excellence
When you are hungry and want something bad enough, nothing will get in the way of your goal. NOTHING. : Read the rest of this entry »
– Why are people so afraid of rap music? I am not saying that everyone needs to like it, but why fear it. I have people in my gym complain the second a rap song comes on. They run up and ask to change it. Now I understand if there is vulgarity and other things that may offend them…but it never gets to that point. Its music! I sense racial undertones sometimes from these people and it makes me sick. Besides, if “Young MC, Bust a move” offends you, you are really out of touch. Read the rest of this entry »
