I've done this Weight Loss for Life program with Karie at Wellness 1st. 3 real food meals a day and protein shakes in between meals helped shift my body into fat burning mode. I lost inches and weight and have kept it off even after reintroducing some foods. If you are ready to tackle the nutrition part of your health, contact Karie Zipper for more information.

On my 30th I was bench pressing close to 300 and running a 49 min 10k. I ate what I wanted because I worked out hard.

14 years later I don't know my bench press and I don't know my 10k time. I do know that I am 100% healthier and can't out exercise poor nutrition. Oh and I'm better dressed now too.

Who Are Your Gatekeepers? 08/09/2015

Who Are Your Gatekeepers?

I read James Altucher almost every day and he always speaks to me. He wrote this article to his daughters but his question "Who are your gatekeepers?" applies to all of us. Who is standing in your way, wielding doubts and fear as weapons, between you and your true self? Surround yourself with people who empower you to break through your gatekeepers and in turn, be that support for those around you. We are all in this one great life together.

Who Are Your Gatekeepers? Dear Josie and Mollie (my daughters),Everyone hates you. I mean, I don't hate you. Most of the time.But teachers hate you. Your future boss hates you (he bribes you to work extra hours and then makes a pass at you. Trust me on this one).Your colleagues hate you (if you are demoted, they avoid you. I…

This is a great opportunity to see how strength can be shown in sports. This might not be a goal of yours but it awesome to watch.

PRs happened this week. But even better is the character we are building. One of the teens was cheering on a mom at the end the workout. Because of his encouragement, she picked up the pace and finished strong. She told him - when my sons grow up I hope they are as kind as you.

He may not have understood the significance of this compliment but his dad and I did. This is about more than just exercise.

Damage Control - What to do When You Over Indulge 07/06/2015

Damage Control - What to do When You Over Indulge

I've been spending as much time as I can reading or listening to books. The last book I read was "Daring Greatly" by Brene Brown. What I took away is that we shouldn't carry shame. And most often I see shame associated with food choices. If you overindulged this past holiday weekend and tend to fall into a negative self talk mode - make a decision to change how you react. Read this article - I think the sentiment is right on.

Damage Control - What to do When You Over Indulge What to do when you over indulge or eat too many sweets. My response for the "damage control" mentality may surprise you.

Ladies of BPF - the kids, both boys and girls, are always watching. Being strong isn't for men only.

And then this happened. These three little girls came over and wanted to know all about what I was doing. #representationmatters #amillionquestions #futurestrongwomen

We have had a good week. As we continue to develop I ask you to think about this one thing.

Have you decided to be different to be uncommon?

The picture is of people choosing to work hard and grow on Friday night. Be uncommon find your purpose in life and live it. Get out of the gym stay off the couch and do something

Father's Day is just around the corner. My father was 52 and unhealthy when I was born. Even going to get a missed ball while playing catch was too difficult.

Why am I talking about this?

Because your health is important not just for you but for your kids. They need to see you making exercise and nutrition a priority.

Recently my youngest daughter was at a friend's house talking about weights. The little girl said "What are weights?" My daughter then responded "Doesn't your mom lift weights?"

This wasn't meant as an insult to her friend's mom. It's that she sees us working out daily and making it a priority - just like brushing teeth. So she assumes that's just what people do.

My goal isn't to get as many members as possible in the gym at any cost. It won't be a fit for everyone and that's okay. My goal is to help you change the way you look at exercise. It's not a chore, it's not a luxury. It's a necessity to care for yourself and pass that mindset on to your children.

I decided, way before I got married, that I would live the longest life I could for my future children. No more missed moments.

Happy Father's Day!

First group (some pictured below) finished the on-ramp program! Everyone completed their very first workout again and the results? In the past month each athlete has gotten stronger. Great job everyone! Kudos to Angelique who reduced her time by 1/3 and to Jim who cut his in half.

Sometimes it's easy to forget we are only competing with ourselves.
