Both research and my own experience shows, this is by far the MOST effective strategy for long term weight loss.
How can it help with weight loss?
So you want to lose weight, you're ready to take your fitness goals off the back burner, and kick your butt into gear. And low and behold, like an answer to your prayers, you see an ad for the newest diet that promises you'll drop 20 pounds in your first month, and all you have to do is (fill in the blank).
You've been here before. Sometimes the fill in the blank is simple and straight forward, like cutting out all added sugar. Sometimes it's gross like only drinking a concoction of lemon and cayenne...
With the kids at home, businesses shutting down, and days and weeks blurring together, a routine may feel hard to come by.
But creating and sticking with a regular routine could be the best medicine amidst the chaos.
Here are 3 approaches to try.
1. Themed Days: Make each day centered around one type of task.
"You're already fit, you're already a trainer, so why in the world are you taking on a new fitness challenge?"
I'm going to be totally honest with you, while my exterior may look fit, my health is not where I want it to be right now.

Do you ever feel like life is just sort of happening to you?

We dove deep into the topics of macronutrient counting for weight loss, how to incorporate the power of manifestation into your transformation journey, and why always wanting more doesn't make you broken, it makes you better.

I'm going to be real with you... personal trainer or not, I am NOT a morning workout person.
If I had to choose between waking up 20 minutes early to do a 20 minute workout, or doing a 90 minute workout after 12 pm... 90 minutes would win every time.
Nonetheless, my interest has been peaked lately. Over the years, I've heard more and more, just how beneficial it is to move your body first thing upon waking.
Being a bit of a...

Often times, people assume they have to turn their world upside down and inside out if they want to change their life for the better.
But truth be told, the more overwhelming the shift, the less likely you are to be consistent. And with no consistency, comes no lasting change.
Which is why I wanted to give you this list of 5 easy-to-implement habits that can truly change your health, your mind, your mood, your energy, and your life for the better.

When I ask my new clients, "What do you need most in order to reach your goals?" the answer almost always includes the words more motivation.
Motivation has become the new cure-all for achievement. Want to lose weight? Get more motivation. Want to eat healthier? Find the motivation to. Want shinier hair? Slather some motivation on it.
