    What’s holding you back?

    You want to succeed, right? You have the desire to exercise and eat in a way that will cause you to gain health and get fit, don’t you? So why is it SO HARD to actually make it happen? When someone starts out gung-ho about a program or idea about changing their body, they’re often so excited that they overlook how truly challenging it will be. When someone embarks on a fitness program, they always need to write down tangible goals and then send them out into the universe for accountability. What I believe is almost as important as setting the goals themselves is making a list of limiting factors – those things that will potentially hold you back ....

    Carb cycling

    If you have ever tried to lose body fat, you’ve probably heard how bad carbs are for you. But we need to clarify something – there are two types of carbs – fibrous and starchy. Fibrous carbs are fruits and veggies and should be consumed in abundance. Starchy carbs are your bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, etc. Starchy carbs should not be avoided altogether; they have their time and place. WHEN you eat starchy carbs can make a big difference. My general rule is to eat them no more than once a day and preferably after a workout when your metabolism is at its highest. There’s also this concept that many people follow called CARB CYCLING. It has worked ....

  • The Importance of TRIBE?

    As long as humans have been in existence, being part of a tribe has been crucial. Originally it was important for survival, as groups can protect one another and navigate challenges with much more ease than a single person. In fact, many species of animals run in tribes. But because we no longer fear attacks by wild animals, natural disasters, and starvation, tribes have come to play a different role in our lives. However, they still serve similar purposes like protection and support...or at least they should. You see, too often in today’s world people have what I’ll call tribes by default. They don’t really choose who is in their tribe – it’s ....

    Why they sabotage you

    If you’ve ever been on a powerful mission to get healthier, eat better, and be consistent with your exercise routine, you may have noticed that certain friends and family aren’t in love with your new-found dedication. And it’s not because they don’t love you. It’s because it’s hard for them to see you change. Maybe they think you won’t be able to have as much fun because you’ll stop being as social. Maybe they’re irritated by your refusal to eat something they just baked. Maybe they’re upset that you declined Saturday morning eating out for breakfast in favor of hitting the gym. I’m here to tell you that this is ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - A Rant: What is a coach?

    A Rant: What is a coach?

    There’s something I need to get off my chest. In the world of internet marketing it seems the meaning of the term “coach” has turned into the OPPOSITE of the reason I got into coaching in the first place. This is a bit of a rant so be prepared… It seems that nowadays you can take a quick course online or sign up to be a distributor for certain products, and you are then slapped with the prestigious title of COACH. And here’s why I am NOT ok with that… To me, coaching implies a deep understanding of the subject matter in which you coach. It implies education, experience, and a significant investment of time and money when it comes to ....

  • Personal Training in Bozeman - Main Street Fitness - What drives you?

    What drives you?

    Motivation is one of the most common objections I hear around why people don’t achieve their fitness and fat loss goals. There are 4 types of motivation:

    1. Fear-based motivation
    – this is where you take action because you’re afraid for whatever reason of what might happen if you don’t. This type of motivation disappears when one of two things happens: 1. You do what it takes to alleviate the fear 2. You rationalize the fear, accept the outcome, and are no longer afraid In either instance, you stop taking action, motivation disappears, and the cycle will repeat. 2. Obligation-based motivation
    – you’re ....

    I love change!!...Said no one ever.

    You want results. That extra 15, 25, or even 50 pounds should have been gone…like…yesterday, right? You want to be pain-free but getting off the couch or out of the desk chair seems near impossible? We all want a better body, to be healthier, to live longer. But we don’t want to put in the work to get there. Even worse, CHANGE IS SCARY! People are truly terrified of change and of the unknown. In order to lose weight, manage pain, get stronger, perform better and alter your body/health in whatever way aligns with your goals, change must happen
    . And if you’re not mentally ready for it, it’s not the time to try to change. You have to be very ....

    Abs classes will never get you abs

    I am asked all of the time how people can get better, flatter, and more visible abs. It’s the #1 area people want to improve. Go into any gym and you’ll see thousands of crunches, situps, ab machine whatevers, and so on. Do those people have visible abs? Usually not.

You already have abs - you just need to lose the fat on top of them to see them! While fun, abs classes are a matter how much it burns. So then how do you get great abs?
