Email: Joe@hardworkworksfitn I have always love fitness, sports, and exercise.

My entire life I've always been overlooked as I grew up very skinny. Throughout the years, I tried many different sports: Football, soccer, baseball, and hockey. While I played all these sports, I was never really any "good" at any of them, I was just decent. The one factor however, was that I NEVER quit. I've always put my 100% into everything that I do, whether I'm good at it or not. As an adult

Doing a workout doesn’t equal the sacrifice of the women and men that have died serving our country, this is simply honoring the fallen.

Remember the reasons we have a 3 day weekend in the States.
Shoutout for rocking out nearly a 10 minute PR time this morning!


Any “fad” that says otherwise is simply that, a fad and for lack of a better term; Bu****it.

Consistency is 🔑

How to hit your Triceps, aka “lunch ladies”


Don’t get it twisted, you do not need to be a bodybuilder, power lifter, or Mr/Ms Olympia.
However, prioritizing your health by eating well and moving your body is paramount.

Top tier protocols to follow depending on your training goals from RP.


tradition, deadlifts and then FEAST!
455 # Turkey day PR, followed by not hitting 475.. “why do we fall Bruce?…..to learn to pick ourselves up”. Hence the “eh, whatever”. , then some back off sets of 225 #.

If you didn’t see my story yesterday, ENJOY the day making memories and being surrounded by loved ones. We work hard all year, one day of indulging isn’t going to trash your progress. Ya, you’ll probably feel unwell tomorrow, and that’s fine. Tomorrow, we get back after it. For today, ENJOY the day and celebrate all the things we do have to be grateful for.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.


Monday affirmation-
Control your mind, attack the day!


No ab roller? No problem! Give this walkout plank variation when you don’t have an ab roller.



If you want to build a strong backside, improve your squat, improve your deadlift, and build a great butt, the THRUST is a MUST!

Let’s talk about for a minute.
Is it a bit of a pain in the ass? Yes. However, 60-90 minutes of making food for yourself will ultimately be a game changer for helping you reach your goals.
For me, I am preparing breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This fits my schedule
Because I am always on the go and my time is limited during the week. Do what works the best for YOUR schedule.
Do you find you’re eating out at lunch to often because you don’t have anything made? Prep your lunches.
Are you ordering take out for dinner because it’s just “easier”? Prep some dinner options.
I get it, you may have children or work night shift ect ect. You have to ask yourself, “What am I WILLING to do to reach my goal?”.
Are you WILLING to take 60 minutes on a Saturday/Sunday (or whatever day works the best for you) to achieve what you want to achieve?
The choice is yours.
If you need guidance, link in bio! We’re happy to help.

This is especially true when it comes to training. We need to become proficient in movements to build any type of muscle. Whether you’re trying to pack on pounds of muscle, or achieve a lean physique (or the magic word “Toned”).

To do that, we need to perform movements more than just once.
Variety is good to change things up, yes. However if we are changing movements every single workout, how will you become proficient?

We make those movements more challenging by:
-increasing reps
-changing the tempo
-adding weight
-adding a set

Rinse. Repeat.

Yea it isn’t “fancy”, but it works.
