    What's your best chance to fix sleep?

    Have you ever heard of sleep hygiene? Just like personal hygiene, it's a routine of activities that help you sleep better just like personal hygiene is a routine to help you smell better.

However, you can affect deep sleep. Deep sleep is when your body is physically recovering from workouts, from ....

    Case Study: Atomic Habits + Time

    This is a story of a member of ours that joined the gym last January (2020). Scott came in with a great mindset on starting with the basics and slowly building up strong habits over the year. I interviewed him after a very successful year of transforming (amid a pandemic none the least), here are the things that helped him be successful. STARTING POINT: Weighed in January 26th, 2020 at 244.6# What was thing that got you jump started?

    Holiday Nutrition Survival Guide Tip #10: Don't Bring Unhealthy Foods in the House

    HOLIDAY NUTRITION TIP #10 DON'T BRING UNHEALTHY FOODS INTO THE HOUSE This is a year round thing but it is also very important during the holidays. When you go to the store, don't buy egg nogs, candy, Christmas cookies, etc and have them in the house. If you want a fun snack, buy something small and eat it then. Don't bring home leftovers, don't bake cookies and all those sweet ideas during the holidays. If some of these things are traditions, then think about doing them at a friends house, so they can keep the supplies there and the extra cookies you guys don't eat.

    Holiday Nutrition Survival Guide Tip #9: Eat Your Main Meal on a Small Plate

    HOLIDAY NUTRITION TIP #9 EAT YOUR MAIN MEAL ON A SMALL PLATE When you're getting ready to eat at a party, go find the smallest plate they have. Usually a small side plate / dessert plates should be somewhere. This is your plate for the evening. You can fill this plate up 2 times but can't have it heaping full. This will allow you to keep your calories low but also works on a psychological level of your eyes seeing a full plate and when you empty it, it'll think it's full. When you go back for seconds, try to have your desserts on that plate with whatever else you'd like to have. But only 2 plates in total. Want to download our FREE Holiday Nutrition Survival Guide?

  • Holiday Nutrition Survival Guide Tip #8: Eat a Big Meal Before You Go

    Holiday Nutrition Survival Guide Tip #8: Eat a Big Meal Before You Go

    HOLIDAY NUTRITION TIP #8 EAT A BIG MEAL BEFORE YOU GO A mistake a lot of people do is they go to a holiday party hungry. They've been saving up all day so they can have treats. In theory, this is a great idea because you are reducing calories before hand to have more in the evening. However, most people over indulge with this philosophy because they can justify that they didn't eat earlier. Instead, try something new this year. Eat a big, healthy meal before you leave. A good example would be a nice big salad, a big piece of meat with a veggie side, etc. Your goal is to get those quality nutrients in you and feel full so you have little desire to eat the unhealthy foods you'll be eating ....
