Interview With A Dad Starting Over – Richard

Richard purchased my book, the Dead Bedroom Fix, to help out with the lack of intimacy in his marriage. Like a lot of men in his shoes, the issues he is facing are deeper than "My wife doesn't seem to like sex anymore". For Richard, "starting over" means scrubbing...

Ultimate Responsibility

Ultimate Responsibility

Not sure if it's because of the holidays, but requests for my one-on-one coaching have gone up. Email frequency is up. This is almost becoming another full-time job. I'm not complaining! Hey, this is what I wanted and now I got it. Thanks to all of you for trusting me...

Just Dunk the F*CKING BALL!

Just Dunk the F*CKING BALL!

A new high school basketball coach has just been hired. It's day one of practice. He walks into the gym and sees the group of kids that he has to work with. He sees players of all shapes and sizes. Chubby kids. Skinny kids. Some kids still look like puberty hasn't yet...

Dad Bods

Dad Bods

Dad bods. We know what they are. Squishy. Doughy. A dude built like an ice cream sandwich. It says, "I have kids. I got a lot of shit to do. I don't have time for the gym or watching what I eat." In other words, "Screw it. I give up." Strangely, there seems to be a...

New Years Resolutions

New Years Resolutions

We call them “Resolutioners”. They are the droves of out-of-shape people that suddenly show up to the gym after January 1, stick around for a month or so, and then disappear. They’re usually spotted hanging around the treadmills or elliptical machines. The...
