No Limits

“Doing things that you don’t think you can do or you don’t want to do change the way you see yourself and others. It is a spiritual journey. And what a journey it is.” -Daniel Weiner

That’s a quote from one of my clients, Daniel Weiner, who set a big hairy audacious goal of completing his first marathon. He crushed his goal the other day with a sub-four hour marathon. It was what he called a silent marathon. It wasn’t part of an event. There was no pomp and...

Embracing Uncertainty

We live in uncertain times. We are uncertain when this COVID-19 virus will be behind us. We are uncertain about when the economy will start to come back to some level of normalcy. We are uncertain about what tomorrow will bring.

This can bring a feeling of uneasiness, anxiety, despair and hopelessness. If we are all honest with ourselves we have experienced all of those emotions to some extent over the past several weeks as all of our lives have been profoundly impacted during this crazy time...

The Six C's to a Revolutionary Life

lifetransformation.jpg

I am almost three years into living a life as an entrepreneur. I have learned so much about myself during this time. There is no way I would be the person I am today without all of the challenges that come with living a life of uncertainty. There is something about getting out of our comfort zones that makes us reach down into the depths of our souls to see what we are made of. Being an entrepreneur has done that for me. Here is what I have learned in the last three years.

Lift Your Spirit

“You will know someone who loses their life from the COVID-19 virus.” This was a post on Facebook I read just two short weeks ago. It was a post shared from a Facebook friend from a reputable source. I scoffed at the time thinking it was just a scare tactic.

Here we are two weeks later, and thankfully I don’t know anyone personally who has lost their life to this virus, but I know there are many people who know someone who has. My heart goes out to them.

Finding the Middle Ground in a Pandemic

We are going through a really difficult time in our country and in our world right now with the Coronavirus running rampant. There are people that are panicking and ones that are choosing to stay naive and complacent.

Quite frankly, I was someone who has been more on the naive side until about two days ago. I am not one to get caught up in the media’s fear based tactics that they are so well known for.

But as this virus is infecting people and taking people’s lives, I have come to...

5 Practices I Implement to Stay Super Fit at 53

troy2353.jpg

My mantra has always been age is just a number. I believe that with all of my heart. In fact, I believe wholeheartedly in anti-aging. I de-age myself by at least a decade, so I am actually turning forty-three on March 7th. I embrace my birthday because I know I am getting better with age physically, mentally and spiritually.

Here are my five practices I implement to be super fit at 53.

Nutrition

No big surprise here. What is the perfect diet you ask? I have been on them all. I have done keto,...

My Journey to Courage

Inhalecourage.png

I recently ordered some business cards for my men’s fitness ministry Barbells & Brothers. For the first time I put the title Fitness Minister under my name. That is a mind-blowing shift for me to think of myself as a fitness minister rather than a personal trainer.

The Ugly Voice of Self-Doubt

I realize my work with my clients goes beyond the physical to transforming hearts and souls. I hear testimonials to confirm that, but that ugly voice of self-doubt rears its ugly head time and...

Simple Faith...Simple Fitness...Simple Food

simplefaith.jpg

When did life get so complicated? Life used to be so much easier back in the day. What if we got back to the simplicity of life and focused on what really matters?

Simple Faith

God doesn’t want our relationship with Him to be complicated.

Simple faith means to see ourselves the way God sees us.

Simple faith means to trust God’s love and simply allow God to love us.

Simple faith means to trust in the blessings that God wants to bestow on us. Blessings that are not earned by our...

Who Are We Becoming

One of the most important revelations that I have had in the past year is that it’s not about the doing, it’s about who we are becoming.  I recently started an online men’s fitness ministry membership site.  I have already learned so much in the last two weeks. 

My vision when I left my position in the pharmaceutical industry was to be an online influencer for good.  Two and a half years later I am on that path of making a difference in the world both in...

My One Word for 2020...COURAGE

Courage-image.jpg

At the beginning of this year I chose one word that I wanted to live my life by. That word was abundance. I was expecting abundance in every area of my life including financial, relational and in my fitness ministry.

I expected abundance living a life of compassion, joy and vulnerability.

The scripture I chose for this past year was John 10:10. “The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

Has 2019 worked out exactly how...
