Biggest mistakes we see our clients make after a "fun" weekend.
1. attempt to do damage control by restricting certain food groups, i.e. carbs.
2. Try to burn more calories through exercise.
3. feel guilty and allow weekend behaviour to carry into the week.
4. allow negative self-talk to take hold.
5. skip out on the grocery shop or meal prep.

Losing 10lbs won't give you more body confidence.
Seeing a 6-pack won't either.
So, where does it come from?
It comes from being proud of the work you put in to better yourself.
The satisfaction you get from:
. preparing your own food
. showing up to your workouts
. prioritizing a good night's sleep
. finding balance and consistency with a healthy lifestyle

Why you should be strength training like your life depends on it.
Below is a graphic illustration of how our bodies can change over time.
The top picture is a cross-section of the thigh of a 30 year-old who routinely works out.
As expected, looks strong and healthy given their age and lifestyle choice to take care of themselves.

Have you fallen out of shape?
That's common when working full-time and raising a family.
But here are 3 simple habits to take back control of your fitness - for good.
1. Buy food to cook at home every week.
Having high-quality, nutrient-dense food in the house is the first step to controlling your nutrition.
And it's your nutrition that will ultimately decide your shape.
Chairs were a terrible innovation.
Who's idea was it anyway?
Ok, let me explain...
Mechanically, we're not designed to sit.
Especially for long stretches at a time. Yes, I am talking to all you desk workers.
1. Sitting on your butt disengages your glutes ( muscles) from absorbing the weight of your upper body.
Something must give, and it's your low back that takes on this compressive...

Muscle - it is the engine of the body that drives all movement. And like all engines, your muscle requires routine maintenance to keep it running smoothly and worry-free.
Without it, your body gets all gunked up under the hood, and an inevitable mechanical failure awaits you, i.e. pain, weakness, injury, lack of confidence.
Don't wait for a light to come on in the dash. By then, the repairs only...
These days it seems one of the top asked questions is "What supplements do you take?!" I'm always hesitant to share what supplements I take because I feel there is too much emphasis placed on supplements and getting "results." While supplements can be helpful for some, they are just a very tiny piece of the puzzle to reaching your goals - whatever those goals may be. In short, you do not need...
Food tracking and calories
Macro tracking can be an excellent tool to help you reach your goals, build intuitive awareness of the energy found in food and support you in making healthy food choices!
This blog will assume you already know your macro ratios (in grams or percentages) and your overall calorie target. Still, you need extra help to make this tedious process less...
Happy new year, fam! It's that time of year where you may be tempted to try the diet that Aunt Judy said helped her lose 10lbs or buy those gummies that claim to boost your energy and snatch your waist, but I want to remind you that you know better than that! I don't blame you for being tempted. When we want something, we want it now in our modern existence. But our goals don't work like that,...
