Exercise For Busy People | Day 24

We were road-tripping from Winston-Salem, NC to Washington DC for a fitness conference. Along the way, we made plenty of pit stops. But these were not ordinary pit stops. Whereas a typical road trip stop includes a bathroom break and a bag of Cheetos, ours included stretching and something called a “blitz.” The idea comes from Dr. Jade Teta, founder of Metabolic Effect. A…

My Workouts This Week | Day 8 #30DayBlogBlitz

Short and sweet post for the blog blitz today. I’m out in Santa Monica, California, and I’ve been hanging with my sister, Jill Coleman, and my boys Jade Teta and Gary Leake. If there is a common theme among this group it’s that they’re all fitness freaks. Lately, we’ve been doing workouts that are awesome for building muscle AND shedding fat,…

Walking To Lower Stress, Improve Mood, and Crush Pizza Cravings

My Sunday vices aside, one…

It’s the perfect industry to learn about success in life. As in life, there is usually a clear-cut goal (look better, feel better, and/or perform better), and…

The Power of Having an Attitude of Gratitude

It’s 11:06pm and I’m the type of guy that likes to be in bed by 8:30pm. It’s about a billion degrees in our apartment. I have sweaty knee pits. Kels and I don’t want to be near each other because it’s so freaking hot in our cotton sheets. I’m in pain from a herniated disc in my back, so that’s…
