Current dogma suggests that all you need to do is eat less and exercise more, or reduce your calories in and increase your calories out. Or maybe just blame carbs, that’s trendy these days… Sadly the communication between scientists in a lab and the…

No doubt you may have guessed by now that I’m a big fan of weight training.  And not in the lift five pounds, fifteen times to get ‘toned,’ kind of way either… Quite simply put there isn’t a form of exercise out there that has so many upsides and so few…

Just like the 1970′s and 80′s demonized fat for a generation to come, I fear that we are currently doing the same thing to carbohydrates. More and more often I hear people offering up colloquialisms like, “there is no such thing as an…

Why Do I Need a Coach?

Everytime I meet someone new I will often be asked this question as it pertains to the services I provide. I’ve always seen such great value in being coached and mentored by someone else that I think I’ve overlooked why many people might resist being…

People often ask me why they should strength train (AKA Resistance Train, AKA Weight Train). The bigger question is, 'why shouldn't you?'
I'll let you in on a little secret. The whole reason I ended up as a fitness coach or strength and conditioning coach, or trainer is quite simply because strength, resistance training and weight tr...

(And what to do instead…) I don’t want to be an alarmist, I just want to start out by being honest today. I wish the ‘Crunch’ and ‘Sit-Up’ would mostly just die already. Like skinny jeans, they are dramatically overused and often inappropriate… If I see,…

But you can go through a moral compass development process… And there is no better time than now. About 3 years ago, around the time I quit working for someone else and took things into my own hands, I became deeply entrenched in goal research. I even…

Not for the coffee enthusiast. With praise as the best coffee on Maui I probably had high hopes. I didn't realize how snobby about coffee I must seem, but this felt like an overpriced tourist trap. Mostly espresso based (AKA Italian or Turkish) coffee if you're into that kind of thing but not particularly authentic for certain types like a cappuccino. Drip is limited to a flavoured and a dark roast only, the dark was better than a Starbucks drip but nothing overly special. Not bad overall, not great. Not sure what the allure of 'flavoured' coffee is, removes the tasty COFFEE flavour, seems like something for people who don't really like coffee. They have a bunch of options here for some strange reason. Perhaps trying to appeal to the broadest number of tourists. What's most disappointing about going to a coffee 'roaster' is not being able to try various different roasts. Am happy to pay for a few small pour overs or press to see what various roasts taste like before buying. What's the point of roasting in small batches, if you're selling it by the pound but you can't try anything before you buy? No labels for a roast date is disappointing for any coffee lover. You could buy equipment for pour-over or french press, but they had no such options to try coffee? If you're serious about coffee, why not let your coffee speak for itself and give people more options to try your various roasts? I bought a fairly expensive light roast, that I hope ends up being better than my expectations. At least they offer some beans with what looks to be a real medium roast and not dark roast only.
