There are two common objections when it comes to health and fitness: 1) I don’t have the time 2) it’s too much money. In some cases, these objections are very reasonable, like going to a gym. It’s hard to find the time to drive to a gym, get changed, workout, shower, change clothes again, and drive back. Add a gym membership and the convenient Subway next door that make you think you are eating healthy… it adds...

I actually think Horton (as in Tony Horton) is a curse word in fitness. Every-time he does something I can’t or says something annoying in a P90X video, I use his name as a curse word.

The hardest part though, is committing to actually put the DVD in and...

My 90 Day P90X2 Results


Posted By on Apr 5, 2012

Here it is, my 90 day results doing P90X2. I really didn’t think I would get results like this in just one round of P90X2, but I’ve learned how much can happen when you stay dedicated in both fitness and nutrition. Before P90X2, I only focused on the workouts and trying to get better at pull-ups. But because I didn’t track other things, like Body Fat percentage and my nutrition, I didn’t make that much progress...

To make sure you don’t repeat the same mistakes I made, here are 5 steps (in order) you can take to bring you out of an unhealthy lifestyle. Step 1—Find your “why”:...

Probably the biggest danger for travelers in staying fit and healthy is the yoyo effect. The yoyo effect is when someone loses a lot of weight from diet and exercise, but then stops the habit and gains the weight back, sometimes weighing even more than when they started. For travelers, this can be a real danger since schedules change, sleep habits shift, and sickness is more likely to occur—all of which can halt you from your fitness...

If you’ve heard just a little bit about P90X2, you probably think I’m crazy. Doesn’t P90X2 require a ton of equipment? How can needing a Pull-up bar, Dumbbells/bands, Yoga Mat, 4 Medicine Balls, an Exercise Ball, and a foam roller make P90X2 travel-able, much less the best  travel workout? The answer is simple… versatility. For those of you familiar with workout programs, I bet you are surprised I’m not...

Healthy Travel Snacks


Posted By on Mar 3, 2012

You don’t have to be a world traveler to be in need of a easy and quick snack for on the road or at work. In order to stick to a healthy lifestyle while also sticking to a busy schedule, you need some healthy “travel snacks” to fill in the nutritional gaps in the day—and make sure a bag of Doritos won’t be so tempting.
