It has been my mission to educate people that food is fuel and it is about eating good quality foods that nourish our bodies like protein, vegetables, and good healthy fats (like coconut oil, olives, avocados)  recent years, this trend has really […] Read more

Even Olympic Athletes Need Recovery

Even Olympic Athletes Need Recovery

The opening games started Friday evening. As we were watching each country march thru the arena you see the smiles on these athletes faces as the entered. Chris and I were chatting about how much work went into those smiles to get Pyeongchang.

The Voice In Your Head at CPM …

The Voice In Your Head at CPM …

As I was watching the super bowl, and viewing the most elite athletes in the world my mind started to wander….

I know most of us can relate to this on  some scale..

Do you think the NFL athletes are going through the same mental battles we are?

Are we all on the same page as athletes? and if so why are these athletes ” So […] Read more

Avoid The Christmas Chaos CPM …

It is very easy with the chaos around us to loose site on what is important.

They always say that in order to succeed and take things in your life to the next level one must be thankful for the things you have already been blessed with in your life.

FAITH – Everything we do or receive comes from the power from the Lord. Life is a wonderful filled with up’s and down’s that make everything you do worth it. Having faith in GOD makes anything possible. And it is a wonderful relationship to have.

CPM Dare to Compare Yourself to YOURSELF!

CPM Dare to Compare Yourself to YOURSELF!

For most of us, we are so focused on what everyone around us is doing i.e. people concerned about looking like others in the gym, people having better jobs than you, smarter, better looking, healthier etc….

But what about comparing ourselves to us???

When we opened our first gym,  I was so concerned about what everyone else was doing that it took a big shoulder injury to realize it didn’t matter.
