First Post

For my first post, I thought I would lay out some of the issues I will be addressing in this blog.  There is so much information available on the internet regarding health, nutrition and fitness.  Much of it is free, some of it can be quite costly.  Often, there is little correlation between the quality/value of the information and the associated cost.  For instance, there are some great blogs out there, written by some of the top performers in the industry which don't cost a cent.  Then there are cookie cutter programs marketed towards exercise newbies which prescribe advanced movements with little technical coaching that can be quite costly when compared to a gym membership that includes small group training with a highly qualified trainer.  The same can be said of products being sold on tv, articles in "fitness" magazines and equipment available for use at your local gym.  One of my goals with this blog is to help you, the reader sort through this information, helping you find the best information at the best value.

I am also passionate about cooking, and will be sharing healthy recipes, both those created by myself and others shared from some of my favorite healthy cooking sites.

As a trainer, I wish I could tell you that by paying me my monthly fee, and doing the workouts I prescribe, I can give you the body you want.  The fact of the matter is that you can work out all day, but if you keep putting crap in your face and don't get enough sleep each night, you will never get the results you want.  Again, I will help you sort through the muddle that is currently the world of nutrition information.

If as a reader, you have questions or issues you would like me to address, please e-mail me at the address listed in the side bar to suggest topics.

Train smart, eat right!
