  • My 2021 Takeaway

    My 2021 Takeaway

    I think the biggest lesson I learned this past year was the importance of mentorship and who you surround yourself with. I remember hearing that you are the sum of the five people you interactwith most. To go further with this advice, the relationships should be broken down into at least two of those people that are helping to make you better. For about a year I had the opportunity to be mentored under Strongfit'sJulien Pineau and Richard Aceves. I learned about Julien from a podcast on The Barbell Shrugged years ago. He was talking about corrective movement in a way that sounded so above anything I'd ever heard of and he described it in a way that was so matter of fact, like everyone ....

  • Changing you in 2022!

    As we reflect on the past year and think about how we are going to about 2022 differently, the person we are can't be the person we want to be. This is the main theme of our 8 Week Anxiety, Nutrition, and Movement Workshop. Dieting is tricky, dealing with stress is even trickier. Add movement and working out to that equation and it sounds overwhelming. Well, it doesn't have to be. These elements work against one another but they also work together, you just have to know what you are looking at. More importantly,what signals in the body are trying to tell you? Dieting and nutrition are viewed into too narrow of a scope to be successful. This is justchanging the food and not the person. ....

  • Weighing in 20lbs less in 6 days Pt.1

    Weighing in 20lbs less in 6 days Pt.1

    I did it! Perhaps one of the stupidest things I've accomplished in my 20+ year competitive judo career. Over the lockdowns I took the opportunity to hone my craft as a coach. One of the areas of study was becoming a "Weight Cut Specialist" through the Lockhart and Leith Method. George Lockhart is widely known in the mixed martial arts world as the leading authority in handling professional fighters' nutrition and weight cuts to get in the lowest weight class possible to improve their odds in winning a bout. For the past few years I've been competing in the heavyweight division but after deciding that I stand a better chance at returning to the -100kgs(220lbs) division. My biggest ....

  • Training who we are

    Training who we are

    What are we doing with our fitness? One common theme I hear all of the time is that working out helps with stress. Does it really help with stress or avoid it? Have you ever heard something like this, "Being at the gym is the one hour of my day that I don't have to worry about anything else."? Are you a person that dreads certain or even all workouts when they are prescribed by a coach? Do you do thesame workout all of the time because it is comfortable? Is that what you are training for? Is that the person you want to be? There is time and place for everything. There are theories abound that alcohol is responsible for civilization. The fermentation, brewing, and distilling process ....

  • Stressing, ingestion, and digesting

    Stressing, ingestion, and digesting

    When it comes to nutrition there is a big factor that is overlooked, just because you ingest something it doesn't mean you digest it. Our nervous system has different gears where it operates optimally in a calm state but also in a stressed state. We may have heard of our fight and flight response, that is our sympathetic nervous system. It activates when we encounter something stressful. It is not the best time to have our digestive system trying to work. Digestion works best when we are in a more parasympathetic state, which is in charge of rest, repair, and digestion. Our nervous system hasn't evolved to the point where it recognizes the difference between mental and physical ....
