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 lot...

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...

Getting Fit – Part 1: Diet

This is me. This is my typical weight of about 200 lbs at 6′ in height. Bodyfat percentage? I have no idea. Maybe around 15% or more (everyone always grossly underestimates body fat). I’m not a super-ripped glistening fitness model with six pack abs and visible veins...

You can’t trust yourself. Take time to heal.

While I was married to my first wife,  I used to cherish the rare moments I would get alone. During those quiet moments, I was able to re-calibrate and get a sense of self that I couldn't have with three screaming kids, a nagging wife and all that work. A day to just...
