The Truth You Don’t Want To Acknowledge

I started working as a fitness professional officially in July of 2011 fresh off getting my American College of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer certificate.

It's About The "Religion" Not The Tactics

It's About The "Religion" Not The Tactics

Chances are if you spend time in the online space or business realm you probably  know where the inspiration for this post came from, but on the chance that you don't let me explain a bit. I stole the idea of prioritizing the "Religion" over the tactics from Gary Vaynerchuk. If you don't know Gary Vaynerchuk is the CEO of Vayner Media and owner of Wine Library. He's a serial entrepreneur with a serious bend towards the old school philosophy of out working every one while being new school enough to understand that people are his greatest asset both as a business owner and person.

The Way I Diet Effectively

Yep I said it. I diet. I know today that is a terrible admission of guilt as everyone knows "diets don't work" because "it's about a lifestyle not a diet." I call bullshit. Diets do work and they work spectacularly well if the diet fits with your personal preferences, allows for flexibility, aligns with your schedule, and provides you with what you need for your goals.
