Good things come to those who Believe, Better things come to those who are Patient and the Best things come to those who Don’t Give Up!!

This past week I was fortunate to be with like -minded people who bring the same energy if not more than I do. To be surrounded by those people is amazing. You see what is possible and you see that there is not only one way to do.

When you feel like world is against, know that you are exactly where you need to be. Know that things will get better, know that you can do anything you put your mind to.

One step, one breath, one moment at a time! Mind over matter, if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.



Change is Hard!

Change is hard.

That is why we keep doing the same old stuff.

We choose the comfort of what is familiar-

EVEN when the familiar is making us miserable.

Imagine all the things you could change if you decided to accept and allow fear and failure to be part of the process?I have been afraid and failed at everything I have ever done.

But I learned, I grew, I kept going until I figured it out.

Now I practice the thought..”I always get what I want”

And I am relentless AF when it comes to my belief in myself and my determination to achieve goals.

And my clients can borrow my belief in them until they can fully find their own.

I will never quit on myself or you.

Once you feel what it’s like to blow your own mind, to do what you never dreamed possible, you will keep going for more.

This life is here to be lived.

To see what is possible and to live it.

THAT is worth the fear and failure.



Change starts NOW!

Instead of “Diet starts Monday”

Wouldn’t you rather say…

“Diet started Monday”

Here’s what’ll derail you faster than you can even get started

1. Expectations – Set goals that you don’t mind spending a lifetime pursuing.

2. Ignorance – You don’t know everything, nor will you ever. Willingness to learn is the only chance you have at continual improvement.

3. Avoidance – If you want something but fear failing, you can only run away from it for so long before you either realize it’s too late even if you were to try, or you see someone else do the same thing and live your dream.

Fitness isn’t just fitness, it’s your deepest expression of thought, emotion and identity. Principles of mindset that facilitate one’s fitness expand far beyond the physical world.

Let go, stop focusing on minor things that make zero difference.

You matter, act like it.

Personal Trainer VS Fitness Influencer: What’s the difference?  

Personal Trainer VS Fitness Influencer: What’s the difference?  

I’m not an influencer.  

I’m a personal trainer.  

Not someone who does fitness on the side.   Not someone with a hobby fitness account.  

A personal trainer.   A fully qualified TRAINER.   I live and breathe it. It’s what I do.   So, what IS a personal trainer and how do you tell the difference between a personal trainer and a fitness influencer?  

A personal trainer is someone who is FULLY qualified. At one point in time, a trainer has clients who they work with ONE on ONE or in PERSON. They have a degree or a certification that is up to date.  Personal trainers can provide you with online workout programs backed by their experience with MANY clients and also science and years of research.  

If you are following a fitness INFLUENCER who is NOT qualified, who has never trained a client, you need to understand they are NOT a personal trainer and can only speak to their OWN personal experience (as they have no other qualified experience in training people).  

Fitness influencers on the other hand, although so inspiring and motivational, they are often not qualified to provide training programs or advice. A fitness influencer is someone who’s side passion may be fitness.   It often isn’t their full-time job. You will see their workouts and their “fitness lifestyle” on their social media pages. They exist to motivate and inspire you to go to the gym and perhaps try some cool new products from brands they work with.  

I personally follow so many fitness influencers and am inspired by them, but you NEED to know the difference. When it comes to your health and fitness journey, qualifications ARE important.  

Not every client is the same and what works for one person may not work for someone else.   

There is a science behind it all.    

You need to trust the process and communication is key!  

This is not a side hustle, this is not about being famous, this is not about followers…   THIS, this is my JOB.   I am a trained PROFESSIONAL and fitness is my LIFE.  

So again… I’m not a fitness influencer.  I’m a personal trainer.

One Task at a Time!

If eating in calorie deficit feels a little too overwhelming at first, then just start by committing to eating more veggies or hitting a protein goal.

If going to the gym feels too overwhelming at first, then just start by getting your step count up each day.

If drinking 3 liters of water a day seems too overwhelming at first, then just start by committing to drinking a glass more than usual.

You don’t have to be perfect from the get go.  You just need to take some form of positive ACTION. 

And anytime things feel overwhelming. Just remember.  One thought at a time.  One day at a time.  One task at a time.

You got this!

The Time is NOW!

You’re not waiting for the perfect time, but your own readiness.

The perfect time is an ego-built belief that keeps us held down in our current situation.

It prevents up from taking action and evolving into a state of growth.

Time becomes the right time when you’re ready for it to be right, when you’re ready to take action and step into your greatness.

Waiting doesn’t change anything.

Time is exactly the same and it’s going to pass whether or not you make a move. 

Allow me to meet you where you are, collaborate with you, and develop systems to help you step into greatness.

Deep down in your unconscious, you know what you’re meant for. 

You know where you’re headed. 

When you are ready step forward, let me guide you to become great and get you to your goals. 

“Nothing that is for you can escape you.  It can only be postponed.  When you are ready to do the deep dark shadow work, will it then propel you towards your goal with purpose.  Find what ignites you.  Find what this world so desperately needs from you!  You are needed, necessary and enough.  Do the work now, since tomorrow is never for certain. “

Living life to the fullest!

Living life to the fullest!

“If you don’t leave a little room to indulge and celebrate, then what’s the point in life.”

One of my mottos in life is, work hard, play hard. As hard as I work in my business, and train in the gym, I equally love celebrating life and having fun with vacations, meals out, and alcohol. You can’t work as hard as I do without taking some downtime to enjoy the fruits of my labor. But, one of the questions I get asked the most is how I can live my life like this, while still staying lean all year round.

How do I do it? It’s actually very simple. I live life with balance. Ninety-percent of my lifestyle choices are taking me towards my goals, keeping ten-percent to enjoy something indulgent. Because otherwise, what’s the point in life? When the body is kept strong through daily exercise, strength training, and a nutritious diet, it can handle alcohol and excess calories from time to time! We’re not here to be perfect. We are here to live life joyfully and have fun.

So work hard, but remember to play hard too. You deserve it.

Have a fabulous week ahead!

Effort Can’t Be Fooled!

Effort can’t be fooled

“Wherever you go, there you are. How you do something is how you do everything.”

In life, how you do something is how you do everything. Every client I train, I know who clearly hasn’t done the work or followed the plan to the letter, and who try to “fool” me into thinking they have worked harder than they have. They pull up their underpants to tuck in the stomach roll. They pull down their bra to hide the extra roll. They suck in their stomach to the point of asphyxiation, trying to make it seem like their transformation is worthy of a prize. (This plan never works, by the way.)

Think about it for a second. Who are they actually trying to fool? Myself, or yourselves? And perhaps a better question is, why would you want to? Why would someone want to pretend that they’d done more work than they had? Perhaps a better strategy would be to examine where they failed and rectify the situation so they do better next time. This will mean you’ll probably experience success worthy of a prize.

With working out, you get exactly the results you deserve, not the results you desire. If you’re going to try to cheat with not doing the cardio like you should, you’ll also try to cheat on your diet. Remember, how you do something is how you do everything. Looking at your need to cheat and working to transform it will afford you much more success in life than the cheating itself.

Getting the results will be hard, no one said it would be easy.  If it was easy, everyone would have a 6-pack stomach.  Trust the process, follow the plan and everything will workout like it should.  Mind over matter, you have to be willing to do the things most people are afraid to do.

Do you Eat to Workout, or Workout to Eat?

Breaking free from food rules

“There is no such thing as good or bad food. There is simply food that moves us towards our goal, and food that moves us away.”  Truth!

Food is neither good nor bad, it’s just food. All food has calories and macro and micronutrients. All food is derived from nature. It’s the meaning we place on it which makes it good or bad. And most of the meaning we place on food is not objective, it’s based on our subjective feeling about it, which comes from rules we learned during childhood, most of which are derived from fear.

Think about it. How many times where you punished or scolded for eating something that was “bad” for you? Did the adult who punished you ever take the time to explain why it was bad? Probably not. That’s because when we feel the urge to punish someone, it’s because seeing them do that behavior has triggered a bad feeling in us, unconsciously. So, we have the urge to stop them from doing the behavior so that our bad feeling can go away. I correct you outwardly, as I correct myself inwardly.

Our rules around food are learned from our parents, whose rules were learned from their parents. How we determine which food is bad and which is good, usually comes from how we were punished as a child. When we are punished for eating too much sugar for example, we learn that sugar is bad. So, when we eat it as adults, the moment of pleasure is very quickly replaced by a feeling of guilt or shame. Most of this behavior is unconscious. But food becomes good or bad based on how it makes us feel. Not on an objective meaning that is measurable in reality.

So, what would be a better way to view food? Given that all food has calories and macros, the only way we could label food good or bad is if it moves us towards or away from our goal. If I have a goal of eating 1800 calories per day to burn body fat for my wedding, and I choose to eat a pizza that pushes my calorie intake to 2200 for the day, then I could label that pizza as bad because it moved me away from my goal. Similarly, if I choose to eat six pieces of highly nutritious fruit, and that choice pushes me to eat 2000 calories that day, that fruit would also be bad. It’s not the food that is bad, it’s whether or not the choice to eat it moves you towards or away from your goal.

The takeaway? If you’re not working towards a measurable goal, food is neither good nor bad, it’s just food. I stopped binging when I realized I didn’t need rules around food, I needed a measurable, objective goal to work towards. Without it, I was just satiating myself with punishment and reward, believing it was helping me to control my behavior (it wasn’t by the way). To move on in life you need to stop measuring success based on how you feel, and start measuring on whether you’re moving towards or away from your goals.

Do this, and watch how your relationship with food changes.

What are the goals you are working towards? 

Your Perfect Life!

Your perfect life.

You ever take 15 minutes and sit down and write out what your perfect life looks like?

Just by yourself.

No one looking over your shoulder.

No one judging.

Not your friends.

Not your parents.

Not your significant other.

Not your coworkers.

Not your boss.

Think about what your perfect day looks like.

What time are you waking up?

What are you doing after that? And after that?

What are you working on?

Who are you spending time with?

How are you spending that time?

Then think about what your perfect year looks like?

Are you travelling? Where? Why? With who?

What else are you doing?

What are your priorities?

When you do this exercise you might find that you are VERY far away from your ideal day and ideal life.

That’s okay.

Perfectly normal.

Here’s the trick.

The hack.

The ninja tip.

In looking at your perfect scenario, find the ONE thing that is the easiest to work into your life right now.

THAT is your number one goal.

Don’t look for reasons why you can’t do it.

Find a way.

In 6 months or a year you’ll be significantly closer to that vision, and your life will be better than it’s ever been.

Let’s Go!
