Have you ever started working out, and then stopped working out?
Of course you have. EVERYONE has. We start, stop, start, and stop again. And it happens over and over again. What’s worse, is not only does this happen to us from time to time, but when it isn’t happening we’re worried about it being around the corner.
I call it the “Falling off Syndrome” and it was only after YEARS of exercising that I finally figured out the best way to deal with it. Check it out here…

A lot of my friends, clients, and family have complained in the past about a very unique problem. They’re making progress in the gym, they feel great after their workouts, and they even have pretty decent form!
But even though it’s been YEARS in the gym - they just FEEL like a beginner.
I put together a few pieces of advice for dealing with this - specific actions YOU can take right away. All with the following guiding principle - to feel less like a beginner in the gym, you need to feel more AT HOME in the gym.
2009… New Years rolls around and I’ve set my first New Years resolution of my life. I’m eager to work on myself and reach my goals, and absolutely ELATED at the idea of actually reaching my goal.

So why was I sick to my stomach with nervous anxiety?
Up to this point I had avoided New Years resolutions, because I had truly believed that they are ALL DOOMED to fail. It wasn’t until I made this mindset shift that I was able to reach every single New Years resolution since.
Today I LOVE setting New Years resolutions, almost as much as I love actually achieving them!
