Many friends and family have been struggling with sticking to workout programs, healthy eating, drinking more water, etc. In an effort to help y'all out I’m holding a workshop to answer as many wellness and fitness questions as possible. the workshop will kick off a 6-week program beginning in October through mid-November. Just in time for you to enjoy a guilt-free Thanksgiving and look fierce for New Years Eve! This is a new program I’ve designed so I’m doing it as a PILOT program which means NO FEE.

Whether you miss a few inches off the chest or just short of lockout, sticking points are terribly frustrating. We all have them. They’re the bumper-to-bumper traffic jam of powerlifting. And just like that line of brake lights that stretches to the horizon, it’s ineffective at best to try to blast through it.
My experience with running has taught me a lot about how to break through barriers so that you can compete at the next level.

But what if you aren't a competitive runner? Does this apply to you?
I recently was asked a question, to sum it up, "I have been jogging every day and doing the video I have at home, and at first I was losing weight, but not i'm not.
Does it feel like no matter what you do in the gym, you just aren’t moving forward? Nothing is more frustrating than hitting a progress plateau, but sadly, it’s something that virtually every gym-goer will face at some point in his or her fitness career.
