Two days ago I celebrated my 40th birthday. Holy. Crap. I'm just kidding... although it doesn't feel real sometimes. I

don't feel 40, and I don't think I look 40 (as was confirmed by the fact that no one believed me when I said it was my 40th birthday) ;) Honestly, it f...

One of the most common requests I get as a personal trainer is "I want abs.". Ahhhh... the Holy Grail of fitness - the 6

pack. It seems as though that is the thing that will validate everyone's hard work in the gym, and give everyone the confidence they need to finally...

I am often asked about protein powders. Which ones are the best? Do I need them? If so, when should I drink them? And how often? There are so many different types, and brands, on the market it can be overwhelming choosing the right one. I have no affiliation with a par...

Two days ago I jumped out of a perfectly functional airplane at 14,000 feet. What on earth would possess me to do something so crazy? I remember the first time I flew on a plane at the age of 17... I was in full-blown panic mode. I hated every minute of it. I didn't ha...

We all know that oatmeal is a healthy breakfast staple. However, it can be boring to eat plain oatmeal every day, or maybe you have a picky eater in the house that won't even try it because of the texture... Whatever the reason, you can still get the same health benefi...

The other day I heard the statistic that only 2% of American women think they are beautiful… ONLY 2%?! That was mind boggling to me. So much so, that I had to look it up myself and confirm it…. Sure enough, there it was, the first article on Google. The article describ...
