Have you ever had a crappy workout and you just don't know why? Have you ever felt like you were working way too hard during your workout and just not feeling the love? Have you ever gone to the gym to lift weights and the 10 pound weight felt like 20?

Got it!. Been there!

I've been a trainer since 2009...

Many times athletes think that they need a big gym full of fancy equipment in order to get their strength training done. While dumb bells and bar bells are great and I use them a lot myself, sometimes it's nice to get in a workout at home or at a park using just body weight. 

It's kinda like running- re...

I was on vacation for the past 10 days and upon returning this past Saturday I was well aware that Sunday would be a "catch up" day having been gone for so long. In the back of my mind I was dreading that all of my work had piled up for me while I was gone and I started to go into PANIC MODE.

It doesn't...

The swim is often the barrier to triathlon. I know this is true because I myself hesitated to even attempt a triathlon because I wasn't a swimmer. Well, I hadn't swam competitively since middle school. I was content to run and ride the bike and be happy. One day though, I was out riding with a triathlo...

As athletes we are continuously pushing our bodies to the limit. We train hard for weeks at a time, take a few weeks off then start it all over again.

Whether you had a podium finish or a personal best, you need to take a moment to sit back and congratulate yourself. Completing an iron distance event, a Spartan Beast, or a Marathon are all major ac...

Examples of this includes toast, saltine crackers, low fiber cereals (think Special K or Rice Krispies) white rice, bananas, applesauce, eggs, sweet potato, chicken, salmon, and jello. Protei...

1. Spend time in the saddle. This means ride often. Like any other endurance sport, you need to put in the time to build your base, build strength, and get FASTER. I recommend 3-4 times a week with a key high intensity ride with intervals, a strength ride with hills or tempo efforts, and one long ride...

I have been doing TRX since 2009 when I got certified to teach it. I started teaching it on the Marine Corps base to a room full of active duty Marines and Sailors aboard Parris Island. If you want to work your CORE like no other workout you've ever done, then you need to start doing TRX! 

The TRX can b...

The swim is the probably the greatest deterrent to triathlon. Most people are familiar with riding a bicycle and running, but when it comes to the swim they are in unfamiliar territory. 

When I started training for my very first triathlon, I almost called it quits before I even began. The thought of get...
