Big A$% Boats!

Ok so I’ve gotta quick share for you today.

 

I’m on a boat!

 

Ha! Yeah, I’m staying a few days on an actual boat in the Bahamas. I say this not to brag (ok maybe a little), but to inform you of how your hard work can pay off.

 

But hold up there brosephine! If you know me, you know that I’m not the type to be riding around in luxury vehicles and hanging out on boats with my vacation money. In fact, I can’t even say that I’ve saved up enough money to cover half these opportunities that I’ve been so fortunate to experience.

 

So how did I do it?

 

Easy….

 

I just asked.

 

I unfortunately, don’t have a lot of time to completely fill you in on HOW you can do it. But I know you don’t have to just be a fitness pro to do what I’m currently doing now. So if you’re interested in finding out how you can live the good life without having to be concerned with your money, or if you’ll ever be able to afford any type of luxury in your life, click below to join the conversation in my private Facebook group.

One (More) Fitness Tip…

Holy socks Batman!

My last fitness tip gotta huge response.

I guess you just want me to shut-up and

Give you the goods every once inna while, eh?

Fine hmmmppp lol!

 

No I get it, sometimes you just want answers.

What can I do to get rid of THIS??

What’s the best ab exercise?

How many grams of protein should you eat?

 

Those are all important questions, but I think 

The most important aspect of fitness is too often

Overlooked by the average fitness professional.

 

What am I talking about?

 

SLEEP!

 

You know you need it, yet you still don’t get enough

I had a problem with this when I first started training

I would stay up late and get up early for work.

Thinking that I was hustling, but really I was only

Hurting myself.

 

I’m not going to go into all the physical reasons

You need sleep, (if you’re interested, click here)

But I will outline a few that you may or may not have

Thought about while staying up to watch

Just one last episode” on Netflix

 

1. Hunger You ever get hungry and crave a late night snack

Well that’s your body searching for dopamine to keep it awake.

Your body also releases higher levels of insulin, which tell your

Body to store the food as fat. Moral: Don’t eat when you’re tired

 

2. Moodiness When you lack sleep, your brain cannot renew

So it goes into panic and thinks something is wrong and releases

The stress hormone, cortisol. This is the same stuff your body

Releases during road rage and when someone eats your snack

Out the company fridge.

 

3. What Comes After 2?? You also get dumber as you deprive

Yourself of those dancing sugar plum fairies from your dreams.

When you sleep, your brain creates new neural pathways that

Accommodate for what you learned that day. No sleep, no new

Pathways, no way to keep knowledge in. All that adds up to

Amount to you needing to write a lot of stuff down.

 

Well speaking of sleep, it’s time for me to escape to dreamland

P.S. I forgot to mention the absolute worst part bout

Not getting enough sleep.

Everyone telling you that you look tired all day.

I mean seriously, seriously. I look tired?

How about YOU look like you should keep your

Observations to yourself.

 

Ha! Looks like I need to get some sleep.

But before I go, I would like to invite you to

Living the good life on my private Facebook page

Let ‘Em Have It (Fitness Tips)

This isn’t something that I do often

But I thought it might be time to grace

You with some general (physical) fitness tips

 

I kinda take be a trainer for granted sometimes

I forget that I’ve been doing this for over a decade

And what may be common knowledge to me and

My fellow “fitspos” may sound more like a quadratic

Formula for traveling through space and time.

 

So today I’m gonna drop a little knowledge on you

And dispel a few common myths that you may or

Or may not already know. 

 

Ready??

 

Ok…

 

1. Be Coachable- Right 92 counter on 3. Ready?

Break! Yeah, not exactly, but having the ability

To follow directions and take initiative to then

Act on what you’ve learned is what I would

Consider to be an important attribute that

Pretty much guarantees progress.

 

2. Start with the end in mind- There are actually

A few reasons why you should do this that

But the one that I think most applies to

Your fitness is to have an idea of how you

Want your body to look BEFORE you start training.

You have to set up a game plan, or else you’re just gonna

End up doing 30 mins on the elliptical for a week

Only to never be seen in the gym again for another month.

 

3. Enough with the cardio!- Seriously, add a little

Resistance to your training. You don’t go through life

Without a few barriers and struggles, so you should

Consider doing the same with your workouts.

 

4. In with the good out with the bad

I think that was a quote from Mr. Miagi, but anyway

What I’m talking about here is fat. Good fats are normally

Found in nuts (cept coconuts…but that’s a different convo)

Beef, milk, cheese, and butter are considered Saturated

Or as some would call them, “Bad fats”

While good fats are normally liquid at room temperature

And are mostly seed oils (read the link for more info)

 

5. Ask a pro- You can’t possibly believe I would end this

Without throwing out a shout out to all my trainer homies

I’ll give you that they may not all have P.h.D in kinesiology

But I guarantee that at least 80% percent know at least

A little more than you do about fitness.

 

Well brozilla that’s all I’ve got for you today.
