5 Reasons You Aren’t Losing Belly Fat
When you set out to live a healthier, better life, part of your goal was to shed that belly fat that has plagued you all these years. However, try as you may, it sticks around like a bad habit. While extra belly fat is a deterrent to your self-confidence, it comes with an array of serious health dangers as well. From increased risk for cancer to heart disease to diabetes, unwanted belly bulge puts your life at risk every day.
If you’ve been struggling to kiss it goodbye, it may be for one of these five reasons.

Reason #1: Your Mediocre Workout

As long as you can remember, medical experts have recommended you get at least 30 minutes of exercise a few days a week. And for good reason. Much of the industrialized world has cut movement out of their lives in many ways, making it necessary to hit the gym in order to stay fit. However, if you think 30 minutes of light jogging on the treadmill three days a week is going to get rid of that belly fat, think again. To burn the flab, you’ll need to add strength training to your routine. Doing this will add muscle to your frame, which will help burn more pounds of fat. It will also put your muscles where they belong, which helps your belly look flatter.

Reason #2: Your Fork

Getting rid of belly fat can’t only be done in the gym. It requires a lifestyle change that includes being very cautious of what you put in your mouth. That means cutting out the processed foods, saturated fats, and whatever else is likely to cause fat to cling to your midsection. In case you’re curious, that includes too much healthy food also. Remember: everything has calories, and if your body doesn’t use it, it’s got to go somewhere, and your waistline is a likely candidate. But your fork isn’t the only thing that matters. Not drinking enough water is a sure recipe for belly fat. After all, there’s a reason a pudgy front is called a beer belly.

Reason #3: Your Stress Levels

When you feel stressed, it’s because something in your life is going on and you simply can’t let go of it until it’s resolved. Unfortunately, when you don’t let go of stress, fat doesn’t let go of you. It’s due to the chemical cortisol, which is released by your body when you’re facing stress. Harmless as a hormone may seem, this one kicks your appetite into gear and may even make it harder for your body to shed fat. So relax and help your waistline slim down.

Reason #4: Your Sleep Habits

Going to sleep is not exciting. Doing it feels like you’re doing nothing. But when you’re in the battle against the belly bulge, getting quality sleep every night is key. How important is it? When researchers concluded 16 years of research into the health of nearly 70,000 women, they saw that the women who slept five or fewer hours every night were at a 30-percent increased risk for gaining 30 pounds than those who got seven hours of shuteye on a nightly basis.

Reason #5: You’re Aging

This one is the hardest to accept, because there is nothing you can do to avoid getting older. With age, your metabolism drops, making it harder to burn off calories while at rest, but your appetite may not take a plunge. Making weight gain even more likely is the drop in estrogen and progesterone in women and testosterone in men. But don’t think aging means you have to simply accept weight gain.

By sleeping well, eating healthily, working out right, and cutting out stress, you can beat the odds and lose the belly fat that has taunted you, no matter your age. And I’m here to help. Call or email today to get started on an exercise program that will rid you of your belly fat once and for all. I’m here for you.

Picture This
Having trouble with motivation? Try this technique:

  1. Go through your photo albums and find a picture of yourself in your best shape ever. It may be a photo from your college or even high school days.
  2. Now go through your photos and find a picture of yourself in your worst shape ever. You may have to go through old shoe boxes of photos, since this photo may not have made it into your photo albums.
  3. Place the two photos side by side. You at your fittest; you at your fattest. Study the photos. Remember what it felt like to be in great shape. Remember what it felt like to be in terrible shape (you may be living that right now).
  4. Make a decision. Do you want to continue living your life in bad shape? Or will you shake off past failures and do what it takes to achieve the body you once had?

Share your two photos with me. Show me the great body that you once had and together we will get that body back.

This is a SUPER important topic and it will make or break your results so give me 2 seconds and read ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM please 🙂

Whether you want to gain 20 pounds of muscle, lose 10/20/30/40 pounds, you succeeding all comes down to your goals.


If you tell youself “I just want to feel good, healthy and be happy with the way I look”, or something similar to that you’re way off the mark. Those are good goals but they’re WAY too general!

You have to know exactly how much weight you want to lose or gain(as long as you’re gaining muscle) and then set up a long term goal and weekly goals. You can also do this with a fitness test for example the number of squats or pushups or burpees you can do in a minute or 10 minutes – whatever you want. It’s all about tracking results and making sure week by week your results are improving.

If you want to lose 30 pounds and you’re only telling yourself you want to feel good, and are not actively looking at the scale then you’re doomed for failure OR it will take you years to lose those 30 pounds.

For example:
If I want to gain 10 pounds of muscle, I’ll give myself a time limit for example 2 months. In order to hit my goal I know I have to gain 1.25 pounds of muscle each week. NOW I have a trackable goal so I know if at the end of the week I only gain 1 pound, then the next week I have to gain 1.5 pounds of muscle to be on track to hit my goal.


If you leave your goal up in lala land and aren’t ACTIVELY tracking your results then you’re going to waste ALOT of time.

Apply this to every thing in your life, weight loss, muscle gain, beating a running time, increasing the reps of squats/pushups/burpees/jump lunges that you can do in 60 seconds or whatever you choose, financial goals etc.

GO RIGHT NOW, grab a piece of paper
1. Write down your goal for example the total # of pounds you want to lose
2. Give yourself a time limit to achieve that goal (GO BIG, don’t go small ie: push outside of your comfort zone.)
3. Divide the weight you want to lose by the total number of weeks you have within your goal time frame
and BOOM!
You have the number you have to lose each week.

Now this is the most important part, TAKE ACTION EVERY SINGLE DAY TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL and you’ll get there!!


Rock on!!


First off, you guys have been ROCKING our weekly boot camp workout challenges and beating the crap out of your old times, WAY TO GO! Keep focussing on beating your time every week and working on your nutrition with me and the results will keep coming FAST.

Here’s a little challenge for you today:
Do 3 sets or more of a 5 minute wall squat throughout the span of the day.
If that’s too easy, do 3 sets of a 2 minute hand stand OR kickups (using the wall) as a superset with the wall squat.


If you do an internet search you’ll find tons of opinions that chicken is soooo much leaner than beef, that’s baloney.

It depends on the cut and there are plenty of cuts of beef that are super lean. We know that fat is great for fat loss and staying lean so don’t cut the fat out of your diet. Your body needs healthy fat!

Chicken legs and thighs are not lean at all and if you’re eating the skin, the fat content is through the roof!

Now saturated fat is something you want to avoid in high quantities but lower levels have been shown to be beneficial. That being said go for organic grass fed beef which has stearic acid in it, a saturate that has been shown to decrease plasma and liver cholesterol.

YES, the right type and cut of beef has saturated fat that actually LOWERS cholesterol.

Take this to the bank, when dealing with fattier types of meat, get the lean cuts and always buy organic. It’s so much higher quality, you have no idea what’s going on with the mass produced meats you buy at the grocery store. Buy organic to avoid promoting that type of mass, unhealthy production of livestock.


Rock on!!


The big question I’m asked often is whehter or not it’s worth while to switch to organic food. Is there really a difference in quality and is that quality worth the price.


Pesticides: Even if you’re washing your foods you’re still eating a ton of pesticides which are extremely carcinogenic and terrible for your health.

Flavor: If you haven’t eaten organic go to the store RIGHT NOW and buy yourself some fruit and veggies. First you’ll notice they are generally shaped differently than you’re used to (gmos) and they taste COMPLETELY different .. better!

GMOs: If you’re not going organic you’re eating genetically modified foods 99% of the time. What’s being used to grow your food twice as fast and to twice the size is unhealthy and something you have to avoid at all cost.

General Health benefits: Countless studies have shown that organic foods contain higher concentrations of healthy substances such as antioxidants and Omega 3s that you’re body needs to function at it’s full potential.

The big question is, how do you know if you’re eating organic:

Go to health food stores (google search health food stores west island and organic and you’ll find places like TAO) and check the label of all your foods.


In order to carry this label foods must meet the USDA organic standard.

In the end, organic may cost you a little bit more but the healthy benefits far outweigh the price.

On top of that you are promoting something so much more important- you’re supporting the growth of animals in a humane way. Yes they will eventually be killed and eaten by you but they grow up normally, not shoved into small spaces where they can’t take a single step.

Eat Organic? YES, JUST DO IT!


Rock on!!


When it comes to cooking and cleaning and stuff like that, I’m probably the laziest guy EVER. I can’t stand spending hours cleaning or cooking labor intensive meals. It’s just not me and I have to force myself to do it. Little to say I have a lot of solid protein shakes each day (added fat source, greens, berries etc) and always spend at least a few hours 1 or 2 days a week cooking up huge batches of chicken and other meals to last the week.

One of my christmas presents was a pressure cooker and I was assured it would change my life .. I thought yeah yeah, suurreee.

I tried it out a couple days ago and made a HUGE batch of stew (one of may all time favorite meals.)


I though it would be smart to cook it overnight the first time, dumb Idea, don’t do it unless you always wake up early. I had to wake up at 6 to take the stew out and was only able to put it in the fridge 30 minutes later .. so I went back to sleep for 30 mintutes and got back up to put it in the fridge. Again, dumb ass idea doing it at night but I had stew for breakfast which was AWESOME.

I don’t know how I didn’t find out about this until now. You can make SUPER healthy protein packed meals with tons of veggies that come out perfectly when they’re cooked slowly over time. Infuse them with the right spices and you’ll be eating like a king/queen.

And the best part is you can leave it during the day to cook and have it ready for you when you get home. Actually the second amazing thing is you can make HUGE batches (buy a big cooker) that will last you for a couple day. No more cooking for hours for me .. muahahahaha.

Chances are you probably already have a pressure cooker, everyone I talk to about it sort of looks at me with the expression “is this guy serious, this is his first pressure cooker.”

Either way, start using a pressure cooker to cook up monster batches of food to last you for days. Make sure you’re using high protein and high fat OR high protein and carbs. Don’t mix carbs and fat at the same meal.

Rock on!!


Get FAST, LASTING fat loss and fitness:



First off, over 95% of New Years resolutions fail and the average woman gains 3-5 pounds over the holiday and desperately hopes her new years resolution will solve that problem .. but it won’t and this is why:


1. Your goals are unrealistic and so you’re already setting yourself up for failure.

2. Related to number 1: You’re unprepared, sure you have a general idea that you want to lose weight. But you don’t have a solid, tested game plan.

3. Your goals are unclear.

4. You lack support and guidance. Because the going WILL GET TOUGH and your support system is what will see you though to your goal.

And so as far as I’m concerend, New Years resolutions SUCK!



Here are some details about my NEW YEAR REVOLUTION weight loss and get back into shape program:

1. I’ve designed the program to overcome the four fail factors mentioned above.

2. It’s a six week BODY TRANSFORMATION boot camp specifically designed to burn tons of fat and tone muscles while you workout with me and then give you the coveted “after burn” effect so that you burn more fat once you leave here.

“AFTER BURN” is the state of hightened metabolism which when done right in the workout, can have you burning EVEN MORE FAT for up to 18 hours after your workout.

You’ll also get a customized meal plan to follow that will help you maximize the after burn effect, this is NOT A DIET. You’ll be eating way more than you expected.
