I have now uploaded a new photo gallery to the Studio Photo Gallery section. All pictures done by long term client Andres Godoy.
I’m constantly upgrading the facility so the images tend to quickly go out of date. Even since these pictures have been taken I’ve done a little re-arranging and added a high quality punching bag with stand.
A couple barbells have also been added.
New images were long overdue so very happy to have a more current representation of ...Continue Reading →
As I’ve mentioned in many other posts, I’m constantly upgrading this facility at a rate that I can’t imagine anywhere else is matching.
I now have a new punching bag and stand delivered that should be up and ready this weekend. This will add some additional variety and possibly a more “fun” way to do breathtaking cardio. Cardio doesn’t appear to be the favorite here, so always trying to make the necessary a little more enjoyable.

To make a basketball analogy, one does not get better at ...Continue Reading →
To put into perspective the importance of food logging for diet & calorie control…
According to Medifast and exercise physiologist Shawn Talbott, running 1 mile burns about 100 calories for an average sized person. One slice of toast will give you about 100 calories. That’s a lot of effort for one slice of bread.
Most people probably aren’t running 1 mile and probably aren’t eating just 1 slice of toast. I would venture to say most people probably feel they’ve ...Continue Reading →
I now have a new client application form online. This should expedite the personal training signup process, cut down back & forth emails, and ultimately save a good 10 minutes or so during consultations. In some scenarios I may be able to eliminate the consultations all together and jump right into the training.
This will be required prior to booking a consultation. From my perspective if a potential client does not take the 3-5 minutes to fill out these essential ...Continue Reading →
This past Sunday I finished my 2nd 3 month dieting cut with the Renaissance Periodization auto templates (if you don’t know RP, just ask). I learned a lot from my first cut which ended on Halloween 2015. From that point through Valentines Day I simply maintained my weight and worked on building my calories and strength. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and a trip to Disneyworld were all in my way which would’ve made ...Continue Reading →
