An important part of BEing Awesome is being healthy. When ever a chance to express this fact or feeling I am more than willing to do so.

5 Reasons why you may not be getting Results


1. Lift better, not more-

The main difference between why my clients and I get results, is because of my one main rule; lift better than everyone else, not more.  So many people are going to the gym with the intentions that more weight means more muscle, and this just isn’t the case.  The main thing to focus on is the muscle and what is happening to it.  When you lift a lot of weight with sloppy technique the muscle is often aided by other muscles close by because the load outweighs the muscle’s capabilities……

2.Eat to train, don’t train to eat

Every healthy body comes from the right diet.  Food is essential to attaining the proper body, and should not ever be overlooked.  For some of you that are working out everyday you need to step back and not only reevaluate your workout, but also your diet.  Do NOT say to yourself, “I worked out today I earned this cookie or cheesecake.”  Putting on weight is not simply calories in vs calories burned.  If it were that simple all of us would be enormous because it takes around 60 flights of stairs to work off half a oreo!…

3. Don’t rush it!

You didn’t put the weight on overnight so don’t think you can take it off overnight.  Don’t quit before it’s gone, stick with it and work smart and hard not just hard.
