Are You Ready to Donate Your Fat Pants?

I want you to reach all your goals; fitness and otherwise. This site is meant to help you do just that. I am still adding information all the time– some in the background, and some that you are reading here in the form of blog posts. Some of what you’ll read about is intended for people trying to lose body fat, some for seniors, and some for the person out there that has everything they want in life but, for whatever reason, still isn’t satisfied.

I gotta admit, I get a bit emotional when I write about appearance and body fat. I get emotional because I’ve had many of my own sets of “fat pants”.

I wasn’t always a personal trainer, you see.

I know how it feels to walk around and be self conscious about your appearance. I know what it feels like to hate what you see when you look in the mirror. I know what it feels like to shop for clothes that’ll hide the jiggly results of our frequent overindulgences. I know what it feels like to look into a mirror and keep turning your body until you find the angle you are most satisfied with before proceeding out the door. I know what it feels like to feel helpless.

I also know that it absolutely DOES NOT have to be that way.

I’m not claiming that it’s an easy fix. It’s not. It doesn’t happen in a week. It usually doesn’t happen in a month or two months (some of my amazing personal training clients have proven to me that it can).

If you haven’t figured it out yet, there aren’t any shortcuts to getting the benefits that proper exercise and nutrition will give you. None.

I see the same ridiculous infomercials on TV that you see. They all claim to be the answer. It’s disheartening to see so many people put all their faith into one of these shortcut programs when I know it’s not going to deliver the results they’re looking for.

As a fitness professional, it’s frustrating to know what the answer is and not be able to share it with all these people.

The different articles you’ll read here are meant to prepare you with the knowledge you will need in order to gain control of your appearance and your life. They’ll teach you how to work more efficiently and make better use of your time. The articles are meant to motivate you to demand more than mediocrity from yourself, and from life.

If there is anything specific you would like to read about, or any question you might have, please write me an email or call me and let me know. There’s sure to be someone else out there with the same problem/question.


Be Your Best,
