Let’s Get Real CPM …

Let’s Get Real CPM …

I was listening to a wonderful Podcast on Lewis Howes .. He was interviewing Wilmer Valdarama about his life, career, and how he got to the place he is today. I did not know much about Wilmer, but what I found was I sucked in by his authenticity. He just was who he was and wanted to continue to work hard, set goals, and become a better person each day. In return opportunities could then be presented to him because he was open, prepared, and ready to take them on.

I often say I want to get to the point that […] Read more

Summer of being super!

 

Summer is a great time to play around and try new things.  The weather is warm, the grass is nice, and we all get the urge to be a little childlike sometimes.  Sometimes that play can come with injuries and today’s move is a great one to get your back ready for anything.

 

I love this stretch because it really is customizable to where you are right now.  It also allows you to stretch your whole back (and get some shoulder work in too).  Back pain is probably the most common issue I hear about so make move […] Read more

Gym-Phobia: Overcoming Fear of Getting to the Gym…

The Struggle of Gymtimidation is REAL…

To think you’re the only one who has a fear of starting at the gym would be a lie. They say the two most dreaded things are public speaking and taxes. I say there’s a third — getting to the gym.

It’s OK if you feel that way. Most people too felt that way at one time.

You’re probably thinking, “How can anyone enjoy working out?” But I say it is possible to enjoy it. Whoa, did I use the words “enjoy” and “working out” in the same sentence? Yes, I did!

Before we get to being able to enjoy […] Read more

Do you have trouble sleeping?

If you have been on our posts for a while you understand we value sleep and have written often about it with; SLEEP TIPS, TnTs for Better ZZZZs, Feeling a Little Sleepy; to name a few…

This is one of my favorite ways to get better sleep at night. It’s an Apple Cider Vinegar + Honey Tea. You add 2 tbsp of ACV to a cup, 1 tbsp of raw honey plus hot water and you’re good to go here. I learned this one from Tools of Titans by @timferriss. It literally said its pretty much a tranquilizer plus […] Read more
