Business Q and A with TG at 30,000 Feet

Pete Dupuis and I flew down to Kansas City this morning for this weekend’s The Fitness Summit. We had a 3+ hour flight, and to help pass the time we had a tickle fight exchanged lap tops and asked one another business-related questions. Pete just posted MY half of the party over his blog like five… Read more

The Power of the Hip Hinge

When you think of the word POWER, I’m sure the phrase “hip hinge” isn’t the first thing to pop into your head. I mean, when I think of it I think of things Bruce Lee’s punch, a Mack truck, the look my wife gives me whenever I don’t clean the dishes, or the Mighty Morphin… Read more

Row, Row, Row Your Back

I hated P.E. class. I was a skinny, weird and uncoordinated kid. I was the one who got picked on in the changing rooms about my lack of size, and we’re just not talking about muscles. Every bullied kid’s nightmare in elementary/high-school Whenever P.E. class was on my schedule, I dreaded it.  I’d rather go… Read more

Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 4/22/16

How to Press the Reset Button on Your Health and Fitness Goals

If you’re like a lot of people, back on December 31, 2015 you vowed to make some changes in your life. You were going to quit smoking, drink more water, read more, spend more time with family, start a new hobby, stop watching porn, or any number of equally nobel and novel things. It’s likely,… Read more

Strong Body-Strong Mind Workshop

I’m pumped to announce the inaugural Strong Body-Strong Mind Workshop featuring myself and my wife, Dr. Lisa Lewis. *smoke bomb, smoke bomb* TA-DA! This is an event Lisa and I have been marinating on for a few months now, and something we’re really excited to explore and hopefully make into a “thing.” The 10-second Elevator… Read more

“How Much Weight Should I Be Using?”

As a fitness professional part of the job description is the ability to answer questions. Specifically those questions posed by your athletes and clients. This makes sense given, outside of their primary care practitioner, you’re the person your clients are trusting with their health and well-being.
