    5 reasons why you haven't achieved your health & fitness goals

    5 reasons why you haven't achieved your health & fitness goals

    For the passed 14 years of training I've come to understand that everyone's journey will have these 5 reasons, and I mean it's a must! For the passed 5 years of me coaching other people as well as helping soldiers in US Army achieve high physical levels, these 5 reasons just find even a more permanent position in everyone's transformation journey. 
     
    Transforming your body & health is not just a 12 week program, it's rest rest of your life. Imagine a life long project that demands your attention every second of the day, and the amount of time left in your life depends on how great of a job you put on your part. I highly recommend after listening to this episode that you take some time to reflect on your journey/goals and see where you need improvement.

    The funny thing about carbohydrates

    The funny thing about carbohydrates

    A diet is another word for "Nutritional restriction to accomplish a specific health or physique goal". Key word - restriction. A huge reason why the USA is the most obese country is because we don't understand food. We don't understand health. We don't understand control & awareness. Your body needs very little to survive, but with this very little, it's also very important to consume the things your body claims as "essential". Essential things for our body's are: Protein, Carbs, fats, vitamins & minerals, sleep, movement, and hydration. Out of all these essentials, for some reason we get so caught up on the C word......CARBS!
     
    Carbs come in many different shapes & forms. One thing I can promise you is this: 1g of carbohydrates is 4 calories and that's all your body will view a carb. Yes they're are simple & complex carbs, but let's not even get into that. When it comes down to giving your body what it needs to achieve weight loss, muscle growth, ect, your body will only see the food you eat as" protein, carbs, and fats. Pizza is carbs, protein, and fat. Burgers with fries are carbs, protein, and fat. Our body is like a computer. A computer creates programs with codes, and our bodies create progress with macros. Stop restrictions and start living!

    How to evolve with your "Why" throughout your journey

    How to evolve with your "Why" throughout your journey

    Day one in the gym will not be the same as day one thousand. Why want it be the same? Well because you're not the same. You have changed in many ways and training, nutrition, performance, strength, ect, has all changed within your body. Your reason "why" on day one thousand will be different than your day one. How do we evolve with it? How do we better understand ourselves and why we want to pursue our goals in health & fitness? In this episode I will break it down for you so simple, and by doing this, you will evolve with your "why" to create an unbreakable mindset.
     
    Life gets messy sometimes and we will fail. When we fail we find more things about ourselves that we would of never known unless we failed in the first place. As this continues to happen, and life takes it role, you will evolve along with your why. But the most important thing is to continue to ask yourself the questions I mentioned in this episode. The more you understand about yourself, the better endless progress you will achieve.

    Gain control of your health to be in control in any life situation

    Gain control of your health to be in control in any life situation

    Life is filled with mysteries and uncontrollable situations that we can only be ready for. How do we get ready for these situations? We get ready by taking time out of our days to self care, self improve, and prioritize our body, health, and mind. Life can throw a curveball at anytime of your day, and when this happens we need to find how to gain control even when everything is out of our control. We do this by gaining control over the one thing you will always have control over, your reactions! What’s the purpose of training? It’s not to look good for the beach. It’s to find our inner worth, what makes us happy, and create a health condition so strong it can be ready for anything life has to bring.
     
    I made this episode short and right to the point because that’s what it is. Your health is right to the point. Life is always right to the point. So when it comes to your body, mind, and the way you view yourself, it needs to be right to the point. The faster we can accomplish an improvement the closer we get to sustainable unbreakable progress.

Great podcast, Great trainer, Great person

I had the pleasure of meeting Coach Matt in June of last year and have been listening to his podcasts for a few months now. From the moment I met him, I was able to see how passionate he was about fitness but specially he was passionate about helping people achieve a healthy lifestyle and overcome anything that kept them from getting there in the past. Myself included. I have been training with him since then and every time I meet with him he has something positive to say about fitness, health, or enjoying life in general. Listening to his podcasts I feel that he is talking to me even on the days that I don’t train. He is full of information and is always looking to expand his knowledge. With his podcasts he found a way to communicate what he knows and his passion to not only the people around him, but the people around the world. Thank you for everything you do!
