Almost everyone who comes to the gym wants a sexy midsection. Right? Know I do. But it's not all about looks..... it is about function as well. Weak core will limit everything you do, in and out of the gym. Weak core will cause poor posture and low back pain. Limit the weight you can lift. How far you can run. How much air you can breath in. The list can go on and on.

When people start to realize they are putting weight around their mid section, the crunches come out. People yanking on their necks and looking like they are having a fit on the gym floor. Bad. Do you know it takes 22,000 crunches to lose a pound of fat around your abs? Who has time for that?

   The MINIMUM EFFECTIVE DOSE is simply the smallest dose that will produce a desired outcome and anything BEYOND the MED is wasteful.

Question; John “When should I have my energy drink or coffee?”This is a great question.

When you are tired you should start with a well-balanced meal to provide you the energy you need.

A majority of strength training professionals have their fair share of core exercises that they would not think twice about using in an athletes program.  The core is believed to play an integral role in the body's ability to generate, transfer, and absorb external forces.  Athlete's undergo many external stressors during training and competition, and must have a strong "link" (the core), to keep the body functioning as a unit, or so we have thought. What research has shown

Good morning! At 5:00 AM this morning I had a panic email from a previous client.  She is spending a few weeks at the beach.  Her goal was to tend to fitness and drop a few pounds while getting a little R & R.  She is biking 20 miles every day and walking too.  Eating lean protein and salads.  It's been 3 weeks and she has lost 1lb.  Needless to say she is very disheartened.
