There is always a reason to smile,

What Is It About A Partner That Makes You Work Harder?

The New Rule of Success

The New Rule of Success

Many years ago, Jim Rohn said you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. I agree, I’ve written about it, Identity and Associations. While it is true that who you listen, hang, watch, and learn from are critical to the way you think, behave and excel in life. This rule of thumb has it flaws… I spend the most time with wife, dog, our coaches and members at CPM. According to Jim Rohn that is the destination of where my net worth is headed. But what if it’s something else that determines who you […] Read more

Christmas Is Coming!

Christmas Stresses Me Out!

There is so much to do this time of year. I want the holiday season to be an amazing experience for the whole family. “Let’s bake and decorate cookies tonight!” Yeah, that sounds like a good idea for the first 15 minutes. “And let’s post all of our amazing family pics to Facebook so we can make our friends feel bad about themselves!” Sorry, I probably shouldn’t write that but have you noticed how some people seem to have lots of time to decorate, bake, do their hair and make-up AND they have their Christmas shopping done by […] Read more

The Definition of Fitccess: Having success with your Fitness!

There are so many types of fitness and methodology to follow, but those most successful programs seem to have VARIETY. When you workout with variety you keep it fun, train different muscle groups, get different intensities, and see the best overall results!

I’ve been using functional fitness as my training podium since 2007 and I have far exceeded all results I thought possible. I can always work on new things, some movement in my workouts are always difficult (sometimes daunting), and I always feel accomplished when i am done! Sometimes my workouts […] Read more
