June 14, 2010

Well, I finally did it–I’m very happy to announce to you that I have opened my very own private personal training and kettlebell studio right here in Honolulu, Hawaii. I decided many months ago that it was time to get out of the gym environment and into a private training facility. I

My first youtube video–Check it out!

August 10, 2009

Hi, I hope you’re doing good. It took me a little while to figure out how to use my video editing program (I suck at computers) but I think I’ve finally got it figured out. The video I made is down at the bottom of this post. I’m totally stoked about it! It’s the first

The secret to losing body fat

May 12, 2009

April 15, 2009

By Tom Venuto Clearly, we have an obesity problem in America and many other countries across our planet. Yet, I propose that we do not have a weight loss problem today. In case you’re confused at this apparent contradiction, consider these statistics: According to a study

I’m back in Hawaii!

March 3, 2009

First of all, I’d like to welcome my new readers from Hawaii, and elsewhere to my personal training blog and email list. ALOHA! I’ve had a sort of writer’s block for a little while now and it’s time to end that. I took a vacation right after I wrote my last blog post

I can’t believe I ate the WHOLE turkey!

November 27, 2008

What?! Some personal trainer in Hawaii ate a WHOLE turkey? I actually did not eat the whole turkey. “I can’t believe I ate the whole turkey!” was really a little homemade paper sign that me, my kid sister, and my cousins taped onto Grandpa’s back during a Thanksgiving get

Why The **Bleep** Do We Need To Exercise Anyway?

August 23, 2008

I remember seeing an episode of a cartoon called The Jetsons in the mid to late 80’s where Judy Jetson was getting ready for school.

A healthy 1,200 calorie smoothie?

May 20, 2008

There’s tons of articles, opinions, and information out there. Very often, it can be difficult for people to separate the useful information from the marketing crap. The reality is, most companies out there don’t want to help you, they want your money.

In this blog, we learn how the human body really works so you will be able to tell the difference between the useful information out there and the crap.

If we want to improve at something, we must constantly educate and arm ourselves with knowledge so we can make well informed decisions.

I came across a good article in the headlines on my yahoo homepage today that I thought I’d share with you. It’s extremely rare to see a genuinely good article for fat loss/weight loss in the media, especially the headlines.
