Success Story: Tod Meisner

In December 2014 I sent Tod Meisner a home workout routine and an XBAR. He was hesitant to send any “before” photos and he definitely didn’t want me sharing any of those photos. I created a series of bodyweight and resistance band exercises, providing him with a program to support his fat loss goals.  During that time, Tod experienced a...

We live in a fast paced world where our bodies are constantly in fight or flight mode. Our minds race, along with our feet as we rush from work, to lunch, to 6pm spin class. We do our best to log miles on the treadmill, reps in the weight room and as much sleep as possible each night. Yet, if...

You see, I recently discovered Optimum Nutrition's Gold Standard...

Let God Guide You

5:30am. You glance away from the clock and stare toward the window. The sun is beginning to come up. You had put your phone down an hour ago, but the restlessness in your body (and mind) are as strong as the coffee you contemplate making.

4 Questions Every Vegetarian Is Asked

It doesn't come up often.  One would think that after 30+ years, I would get tired of talking about it. It's inevitable though that whenever we have people over for dinner, or when I'm discussing nutrition with clients, I end up talking about my vegetarian lifestyle and plant-based diet. It seems absurd to most people or, at least, they're surprised....

Modifying Your Relationship with Food

The word "cheat" has become a buzz word in the fitness industry. It defines the way we view a particular meal, snack or food item. When you think of a cheat food, what comes to mind? Ice cream? Pizza? Chocolate? Anything with a bar code? If you can relate to any of these, or if your cheat meal consists of a...
