This past weekend it was my honor to present on the topic of "Psychological Wellness" at the Albuquerque Strength and Conditioning Clinic, held annually for fitness professionals and interested public at the JCC of Greater Albuquerque
As the warm, sunny days of summer wane, you might find it more challenging to eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables. Fresh-picked produce is less accessible, and autumn tempts with comfort foods and holiday goodies. Don’t let cooler weather and overcast days become your excuse to make unhealthy eating choices. Stick with your nutritious habits during the next few months to maintain a healthy weight, prevent colds and illness, and stay energized through the fall and winter.
Good morning folks, Thanks for hanging in there! For fighting the fight. For being positive when you'd rather tell the world to take a long hike off a short pier. My name is Tanner and I’m in your corner. I'm here to tell you it's worth it. I appreciate and respect what you're doing. Please leave a comment (praise or prayer), if you can hear me now!
One of my favorite basketball coaches had a phrase "fake hustle" he loved to use. If you're into sports you've seen it before. It's the guy that lackadaisically dives after a ball after it's ALREADY gone out of bounds. It's the guy that misses an easy layup and commits a foul on the very next possession trying to make up for it.

I've yet to find a money tree; however, what I've realized in adulthood is...people spend time and money on what's important to them. Whether it's travel, dining, entertainment, fashion, automotive, or a plethora of other options, we tend to make things we enjoy a priority and use our two most valuable resources (time & money) engaging in these activities. Everything else usually gets an excuse.
In previous blogs, I discussed CHANGE and how to ADD to your days in order to better your lives. In this blog, I will continue the discussion of CHANGE and talk about pushing yourself past your comfort zone.
Something I can count on every day at the gym is seeing someone attempting the latest get fit quick exercise they've seen in their favorite fitness social media outlet or magazine. Nine times out of ten they're performing the exercise incorrectly. On top of that, they most likely have no idea WHY they're doing that particular exercise in the first place. They saw someone else doing it and thought it looked cool to try.
OK...so, the long holiday weekend is over! Time to get back to the grind! Many clients have asked me about detoxing/cleansing, etc. after several days (or weeks!) of binging. While I don't advocate for detox diets or special cleansing drinks, I do have a few tips that I hope will help:
