JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 4

I knew I'd have to make a post like this sooner or later. Didn't realize the Easter holiday was so fast approaching when I started Mount Crushmore so it's as good a time as any to talk about something that's going to happen in your weight-loss / fitness journey: You're going to have some weeks … Continue reading JTF’s Mount Crushmore, Week 4

Happy New Year — You’re On Your Own

Alright, so December happened. In my last post I wore y'all out about Thanksgiving etiquette and how to not be a gym-bro douchebag during the holidays and then apparently took a hiatus from content. But lo and behold, here I am, blogging on January 1. https://media.giphy.com/media/xQJ0PSQFOWJBC/giphy.gif Classic personal trainer move, no? Perking up at the … Continue reading Happy New Year — You’re On Your Own

Friday Fitness Finds 4/20/2018

Lately I've been playing a lot of Tetris on my Roku because that's what all 33-year-old single guys do on Friday nights, right? … Continue reading Friday Fitness Finds 4/20/2018

FRIDAY FITNESS FINDS 1/19/2018

What a week, y'all. In the last week I've continued working with existing clients/members, finished a final session with another and picked up four new ones.

Friday Fitness Finds 1/12/2018

This has been the first week in over a month that I've felt amazing (physically, at least) every day. I've gotten lots of sleep, put in a lot of work at the gym and have eaten well every day with no exception. It's so freaky how the holidays have a tendency to throw us off … Continue reading Friday Fitness Finds 1/12/2018

The Weekly Thing 1/8, aka “New Year, Who Dis?”

It's the second week of January, guys -- know what that means? Statistically a quarter of all New Year's resolutions involve eating better and getting in the gym more, yet by the second week of January -- again, statistically -- we're dangerously close to 40% failure already. This stat isn't new to me and it's … Continue reading The Weekly Thing 1/8, aka “New Year, Who Dis?”
