I have a client I’ve been working with for about 6 months now, she had been working with another trainer for about a year before that and lost a lot of weight right out of the gate, but had plateaued and she contacted me to switch things up or get a new perspective. This is a common problem for a lot of people, I thought I would cover it here, share my approach, show how it’s a bit different and talk about the results, which I think will be surprising for most people.

When we do an assessment or an initial intake with a new client we go through their goals, expectations and generally what they’re looking to get out of our relationship and an exercise program or fitness routine. Through this assessment we usually cover how much the person may or may not have exercised in the past, how active they currently are and what barriers they may have to starting an exercise program. What we’ve found is that two of the biggest barriers are a lack of time and...

Athletes will sometimes call this the zone, I know that one time a sat down to write a blog post and I wrote 3 or 4 pages in about 45 minutes, but it felt like only a few minutes had actually passed. I’m sure most of you have experienced this in one form or another, this almost magical feeling where you feel like you can not only accomplish anything, but also enjoy doing it. To me this seems pretty obvious, who doesn’t want to spend more time enjoying what they're doing? But there’s also...

A couple of weeks ago I got a phone call from a potential client. Like many of these phone calls it went something like this, Hi, I’m out of shape and I need to lose weight, I’m really interested in the services you offer I have kids and I don’t have time to get to the gym, but if someone could come to my house a couple times a week that would help me stay focused and accountable.

Episode 315: The Obesity Code - Who’s the Biggest Culprit

11/27/2017

I just finished reading the Obesity Code by Dr. Jason Fung and as the title suggests this book is about obesity, more or less how it happens, the nuances around it and what you can do about. It’s a long book, but it’s not a heavy read and although he covers a lot of very well researched scientific concepts that can get complicated, he’s very good at relaying the information in a palpable, interesting and slightly humorous way, which is the reason I prefer this book over other similar books...

After I put my son to bed I often come down to my little home office to get a little more work done before I put myself to bed. Usually I save mindless admin tasks for this time because I have trouble focussing on anything that is deep and meaningful and I can’t do anything that requires research of any sort because then I might end up on youtube watching videos, that don’t do anything to move my mind or life forward. Actually, for the most part not only do they not help me move forward,...

And the truth is this is how it happened, I said this is important to me, then I set up my life or my environment in a way that supported that change, until it became a full habit. I recently...

Episode 309 : Changing How You Look at Goal Setting

I’ve done a few episodes about goal setting usually under the premise that goals in and of themselves are more or less a waste of time, at least in the standard way that most people think about goals - I want to lose 40 lbs. in 6 months or I want to be able to do 10 push-ups in 10 weeks. I know that this flies in the face of what most other personal trainers, health coaches and self-help gurus might say, that a goal needs to be specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and timed or more...
