20-Second Mirror Trick

A few weeks ago, I was at the All Pro Dad Event in Atlanta. Jeff Foxworthy, Tony Dungy, Mark Richt and other great mentors and coaches gave us Dads some simple tools to be better fathers.

You Are Making it Too Hard

Inside my fitness business, I do a Facebook Q & A during the week and the questions sometimes blow my mind. “What time of day should I work out?” “Should I work out on an empty stomach?” “What exercises burn the most calories?” I don’t mind answering these. But you need to know something… these all have such little impact …

Truth About Second Chances

A couple of weeks ago, one simple statement from former NFL player Troy Vincent made me think… “If the Lord woke you up today, you have a second chance”. How simple, yet powerful is that?

What silly nonsense… “You can’t take a day off if you want to achieve your dreams”. I used to work 7 days a week… sometimes around 80 hours or more. My mindset was “I’m my own boss, so my success depends on how much I work”.  If you think you have to do the same to achieve your dreams, whether …

This was the biggest challenge I’ve done in months. It changed my perception of quality time forever. This will challenge you, too… and only a few people can pull it off. This month, I pretty much DARE you to try it… … Device “Detox” Before this month is up, I DARE you to go a full day without your phone, …

Today is the day… the overwhelming feeling of guilt as you eat mountains of Doritos and hot dogs to celebrate Labor Day… Here’s a new strategy that’s a little controversial. I’ve done this with my private clients for years when I trained 1-on-1 as well as bootcamps. Plan your setbacks. Say what? For example… today, i’ll be eating some fried …
