17 Ways To Set Yourself “Free”

The first time I heard the term “free” used to advertise food was with gum.  Trident was the first to go “sugar-free” in the mid 1960’s, but I was first introduced to the concept by “4 out of 5 Dentists” because I had braces and sugar-free gum was supposed to be better for my teeth. 

5 Things To Stop (And Start) Telling Your Kids

In training, it is not uncommon to spend a lot of time selecting specific exercises, reps, sets, rest periods, and types of food in order to get the desired result.  In parenting and coaching, however, it is less common to spend that kind of energy selecting the precise words, tone, and posture to get a result for which we are looking.

Change Your Thinking Change Your Life

I am here in Las Vegas for the NSCA National conference.  Yesterday I had the honor to speak for 2 hours about the TFW system, presenting alongside some of the top strength coaches in the world.  This experience reminded me what you can achieve with 15 years of passionate work.

Do You Know How To STACK Your Supplements?

The market for dietary supplements is gigantic, so it’s no surprise that new products appear on the shelf almost every week. The thing is, a majority of these supplement products don’t work, and the ones that do rarely live up to the marketing hype.

Who Will Win The 2014 World Cup?

If you can’t tell, I enjoy writing.  Not only do I get to share my ideas, but I am also inspired to write by the challenges the readers throw at me. This piece represents one of my toughest requests yet.  I was asked to write about the World Cup, and as a fan of the sport, I accepted the mission without hesitation.  

Do You Recognize This Bully?

A bully is someone who uses fear and violence to create some form of harm or intimidation in order to satisfy a goal. Bullies are aggressive, unprovoked, and don’t let up. A bully can use a position of greater strength or size to prey upon the small and weak.


In terms of stopping you from reaching your potential, the word “busy” may be one of the most dangerous words in the English language.  When people are asked why they don’t work out, eat right, get enough sleep, read more books or have more meaningful relationships, the common response is, “I don’t have time for that, I am TOO BUSY.”   Now I can appreciate you have a lot going on in your day, but do you have 15 minutes? 

Why You Shouldn’t “DO” Lunch

What if I could save you 1,000 hours and over 10,000 dollars to invest in yourself and your dreams?
What if I told you it was easy to do and you could start today?
I am sure you might roll your eyes and say, “Here we go, another technological product that I won’t use, right?”  Wrong.

Treat Your Life Like a Twitter Post

There was once a king asked his greatest advisers and scholars to write down the wisdom of the ages so he could be wise and pass this wisdom on to future generations. After 10 years, the advisers came up with 10 volumes of wisdom and presented them to the king.
