Let's go through all the BS and talk about what works. With over 20 years in the industry I have seen it all. Its time to stop the crap and stay real!

EP 11 Why You Are Finished Before You Even Start
It's December and you know what that means....New Years resolutions!  Every year we promise ourselves to start or stop something and wind up going nuts the whole end of the year because we know what' coming.  The sad part is no matter what it is, most will be done by the end of January.  Today I discuss a better way to change in the new year and set yourself up for long term success!   Music- Actionable by Bensound

EP 4 Why I'm Not a Huge Fan of Group Training/Boot-camps
Boot-camps are all the rage right now.  Grab your towel, a friend and let's get ready to kick your butt for 60 minutes!  They are affordable and appealing to most people who find exercise boring and just plan don' t like it.  But unfortunately, some  people should avoid them all together while others should start with something different before they move to a group setting.  In this episode I discuss the good, the bad and the ugly of group training.

EP 3 Why Don't You Do Anything?
Last week we tackled why you do what you do but this week the question is why aren't you doing anything?  What are some of the reasons you give for not taking care of yourself?  Whether it's time, pain, lack of motivation or just plain not caring, we tackle it in this episode.  No more excuses, get off that couch and make it happen!

EP 2 Why Do You Do What You DO?
You have goals and work hard everyday to achieve them. You follow a exercise regiment, eat certain things, track it all and take your supplements. I have a question, why?  Why are you doing the things you do?  Are you happy?  Are you satisfied.  Are you healthy and relatively pain free.  Will you keep this up for the rest of your life? If you answered no to any of these questions then again I ask, why are you doing it.  If you never lost a pound or changed the way you look, would you still do those things.  In this episode we dive into why we do it and maybe, just maybe, there is a better way.

Welcome to Stay Real!
Welcome to Stay Real!  In this first episode I kinda give the run down what this is all about.  If you are tired of all the BS in health and fitness, you came to the right place.  This started on YouTube and is slowly turning into a podcast, so I thought, why not!  Again, welcome and appreciate you being here.
