Tune Out the Noise and Focus on the “Game” CPM ….

Super Bowl Sunday LI took place Sunday night, between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots. Both teams have put in a lot of hard work and dedication to get to this final game.

With the weeks prior leading up to this event, there has been so much “noise” about the New England patriots; especially Tom Brady. (I know we have all heard it and are so over it). The media, late night talk shows, newspapers, sports shows are all capitalizing on tension between the commissioner, coach, TB, deflate gate 2.0 etc .. Through all the “noise” there was little […] Read more

FITness Mistakes You Must Avoid in 2017…

FITness Mistakes You Must Avoid in 2017…

Price Shop Gyms…

What is a smarter strategy?
A. Paying $20 a month to a gym you don’t ever use. Thus, no results are achieved. It’s just enough money to justify not going or convince yourself you will start over on ‘Monday. Less money, less motivation, less fun; seems like a lifetime of frustration to me.
B. Or, paying a couple hundred bucks for a coach and gym that gives you the education, accountability and results for a lifetime! Money is one of your best motivators if you position it the right way.

You get what you pay for… Right? Your body is not an […] Read more

The next morning, Chris and I looked at pictures and video reminiscing about all the fun that was had and it made me think of how important “Fun” is to our lives! I have written that a community that plays together stays together, but it goes […] Read more
