The LeanBody Transformation Contest

Posted by:

We all want to see the body that we know we are capable of having.  I know I do!  It’s one of the reasons why I exercise with such fervor, keep educating myself about the benefits of eating healthy foods, and teach myself to be disciplined when I would rather dive head-first into that 7-layer fudge cake!

I want to see you attain that body as well.  So, I’m giving you your chance to shine.

That’s why I’m announcing the LeanBody Transformation ...

What Drives You to Succeed?

Posted by:

“The difference between a person who succeeds at their fitness/weight loss program and the person who has mediocre results is Drive and Passion.”

This was pointed out in a blog I was perusing recently, and it struck a chord.  The more I look at my life, the more I see that to be true- when I was Driven and Passionate about getting in shape and losing weight, I accomplished it fairly easily.  However, when I wasn’t driven, when I just wanted ...

Hit it Hard, Git it Done

Posted by:

A great workout for bootcamp to start off the week! This workout was a total of 20 minutes, including the warm-up and cool down.  To extend it, go through one-to-two more circuits. However, it should be performed intensely enough that only two circuits are needed. This workout is not geared toward beginners, but more toward intermediate/advanced exercisers.

Do as many repetitions as you can in the allotted time during circuits. During the warm-up, use those exercises to get blood flowing, stretch, ...

The Fibrous Diet

Posted by:

The food industry has lately been having a “high-fiber diet” fad.  If you have shopped at a grocery store at all lately, you’ll find it added into many products.  High fiber orange juice, high fiber granola bars, high fiber noodles, high fiber cereals, and the list keeps growing! Much of this started a few years ago when the Atkins Diet was popular, and food manufacturers were looking for ways to keep down their carbohydrate counts. Adding fiber was a great ...

Why Infomercials Lie

Posted by:

Yesterday, on my Facebook page, I posted this saying: “The faster you want to lose weight, the more intense you have to be, the more focused, and the more prepared.”

True quick weight loss is not something that can be easy- “3 minutes a day to rock hard abs!” or “This diet will have you losing 10 ...

Heavy Metals in Your Protein Powder?

Posted by:

As you know, I have partnered with Prograde Nutrition because I truly believe in their company.

So I’m not surprised at all to see them release this amazing report on what’s really going on with Protein Powders these days.

You’ve probably seen some of those crazy reports about protein powders being dangerous. If not, what happened is that Consumer Reports released a study they had done, looking at levels of certain toxins in some protein powders, and a few of the bigger ...

Fat-Burning Level

Posted by:

“How much cardio should I do?”

This is a question that I am asked regularly, even after I’ve handed a full workout program to a new client (my workout programs always include a strength prescription and a HIIT or metabolic circuit cardiovascular prescription).

I’m NOT a big believer in “cardio” as most people use the term. Quite honestly, it’s ...

I Love You!

Posted by:

When was the last time you said “I Love You” to your body?

Was it this morning?

Yesterday?

Sixteen years ago?

Ever?

How often do you say “I love you” to those closest to you? Probably pretty often. We do it because it’s one of the strongest emotions we have.  Those three little words have power.  They tie us together.

And if you love someone, it’s pretty rare for you to go knocking them around, ...

It’s Not THAT Hard!

get lean

Written by my partners at Prograde Nutrition

If it were easy everyone would be walking around with a lean, sexy body.

But hey, it’s not in this world we live in today. Believe me, I understand all too well that there’s temptation around every corner.

Everywhere you look there’s fast food, junk food, chocolate, candy, ice cream, pizza…

And I know it tastes good. And I know when you ...
