Step counting has been popular for awhile now. So much so that tracking your daily walking activity is a feature built into most phones.

You may even have (or are considering getting) a watch or fitness tracker to collect that data more accurately for you.

Having that information does you no good if you aren’t sure what to do with it, or if you should even pay attention to it. My goal is to help you make that decision for yourself.

Working in the garden. Hiking in the mountains. Vacuuming your entire house. Taking a ride around the bike trail.

There are times when any of those things could count as exercise.

There are also times when, not only should those specific examples not be considered exercise, but other things — like your daily 5 mile run, or an hour lifting weights at the gym — don’t count either.

I’m talking about the difference between exercise and activity. Without...

Whether you struggle with diet or exercise, it’s rarely the actual diet or exercise part that’s the problem.

The real problems are things like a hectic schedule, losing motivation, getting sick, not knowing what to do… all the real-life stuff that gets in the way.

A coach can help with these things.

Whether you hire a coach or not isn’t the point. You may not be ready or able to take that step. That’s ok. Although I believe it’s something everyone s...

75% of Americans say they eat healthy. Yet 70% of Americans are overweight.

Clearly there’s a disconnect somewhere.

It might not be your fault. You can do exactly what you’ve been told is healthy and still not get results. Some of it is just bad information. But even advice that caused great success for one person could be wrong for you.

I’ll tell you why that is, so you can find what’s right for you.

If you’re looking to lean out, tone up, or even build serious strength, but don’t want big, bulging muscles to go with it… read on.

First things first: there’s nothing wrong with getting big and jacked — men and women alike.

Just know, if you’re looking to be the next Mr. or Ms. Olympia, this particular blog isn’t for you, and that’s ok.

There’s no shame in any type of body composition goal.

I just thought an article titled, “How to Achi...

Lots of people lose weight. Of those that do, most of them gain it all back again, often gaining more weight in the long run.

The 3 factors I’ll share aren’t just philosophical ideas for how to prevent that from happening, they’re practical steps you can take to set up your defense.

If a person in Australia wants to get to the North Pole, it makes sense that they’d need to head, well… north.

The question was posed like this:

“I’m just an average person. I don’t intend to run a 5k. I’m not interested in being a bodybuilder. I don’t have a specific goal or performance aspirations as they don’t pique my interest. So what is the reason to do this…

“Am I just going to be a good ‘worker outer’?”

The heart of this question could be rephrased something like this: “If I just want to lose a little weight, is there any reason to take exercise seri...

Working hard or hardly working? It’s not just a hilarious dad joke.

When talking to people about any exercise they’ve done in the past, I often hear one of these two complaints:

1. It was too hard and I had to stop (or I got hurt).

2. It was too easy; I have to do more to get results.

There’s a sweet spot somewhere in the middle, and I have a suggestion on how to get there.

You can’t trust just anything to help you get in shape. In fact, last week we exposed 7 undependable things specifically.

This week is a little different.

I believe in having 2 positive things to say for every negative. But we’re doin’ ya one better by giving you 3 trustworthy sources for each of the unreliable ones we named last week.

Every source here is one we depend on personally, and we aren’t being paid for mentioning them.

I’ve left a brief de...

In a world filled with so many opinions on health and fitness, it’s hard to know who, or what, you can trust to help you get in shape.

My hope is that you’ll trust me, but I don’t want you to follow me blindly.

My goal today is to give you ideas on how to easily sort through all the information, and decide for yourself what’s worth your time and what isn’t.
