  • Do You Trust Me?

    Do You Trust Me?

    Do you trust me? Honestly, probably not. Why? Because someone or something in my industry has lied to you. They told you all you had to do was workout 20 minutes a week, or take this pill, or drink this shake, or eat this one food everyday and you’d see all these too good to be true results. And it was just that, too good to be true. Someone or something lied to you, and you believed it only to be left money out, time wasted, and right back where you started...or worse. For that, I am sorry. To be honest, about 50% of the questions I get regarding fitness, nutrition, and health in general are to dispel random myths a friend, relative, ....

    Don’t Blow it During the Holidays!

    Did you know that most Americans gain 2-3 pounds of fat during November and December? It doesn’t seem like much but over 5 years- you’ve put on 10-15 pounds! It’s so easy to say, “Meh, it’s the holidays! I’ll go nuts now and fix it in January.” It doesn’t have to be that way!

  • Over-delivering On The Client Experience

    Over-delivering On The Client Experience

    Our coaching staff has a private facebook group that we use as a hub for communication about clients, programming, and other things going on at the gym. Every so often, (more often than not lately) I put a question or a challenge on there for all of us to participate and engage with one another. It’s somewhat of a weekly staff development. This past week I posted a question to our staff that was stimulated by a recent roundtable discussion I was in with some fellow gym owners. The question was, “How do you over-deliver on the client experience?” To my staff they probably think…”Here he goes again…” Some might even feel convicted that they ....
