Client Update / Sam Buck

Sam had an incredible first year with me, winning the Jr Class and 2nd second in the novice class.  The amount of muscle she put on through clean and healthy eating, working out, and enjoying it, has been incredible!

Lead the Life YOU want to live.


Every day you wake up. You brush your teeth. You get dressed, go to work, go home, go to sleep. REPEAT. REPEAT. REPEAT.

Why? What makes you tick?

I saw video today saying

“What do I want to do every day for the rest of my life? DO THAT.” – Gary Vee

Thats so incredibly powerful. We all fall into the traps of being a mundane worker, no happy at what we do, and constantly searching for more.
We all should want more. We should want to grow, and flourish. The constant progression to succeed and to learn is a key attribute that successful people have.  If your goal is to be the the best athlete in the world, DO THAT.  If your goal is to be the best doctor in the world, DO THAT.  Architect? Police Man? DO THAT.

Chase your dreams, and do EXACTLY what you want to do.  What are you waiting for?  What is standing in your way?  Leave a comment and let me know!






Thanksgiving / Holidays


I get asked this question often.  HOW do you survive holidays while staying on track with your goals?  Eating correct, etc.  There are a few ways you can approach it.  I am VERY family oriented and I believe proper balance within your life is important key to success.  If you are NOT in contest prep, you SHOULD be enjoying family time / mental down time.  One meal will not break you, it wont ruin your goals, nor will it make you lose your next show.  In fact, many times, enjoying that mental down time will rev you up and keep you on track further.

Eat up and ENJOY!

A few healthy options that I found as great recipes:

Sweet Potato – Pecan Caserole

Lemon Maple Squash

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Video – Baked Salmon and Asparagus

Video – Quinoa Stuffed Peppers


Making a Life Long Change

Diet, clean eating, working off Macros. What keeps YOU motivated to be the best you can be? Everyone has a different approach and some are better than others. When approaching a lasting lifestyle change, balance seems to be the key. Without balance everything falls apart.

A few tips to keep you on track. 

** Don’t eliminate everything at all once.

**Remember its a marathon, not a sprint.  Health changes takes a long time.

** Spices and seasonings are your friend.  Small additions of good flavor can change every meal you have.  Take advantage !

** One Cheat meal a week is perfectly ok.  Mentally and physically it will keep you on track.

** Don’t be upset if you dont lose 20lbs the first month.  1-2lbs a week is healthy, this will ensure you keep the weight off.

** Protein shakes are a great tool that will keep you full in between meals.  They will help cut down cravings as well as keep you satisfied.

** Above all, DON’T GIVE UP!

A new YOU, is right around the corner!
