I've made a few additions to the site so I figured I'd give some space to touch on them a bit:
Release of "Let's Sharpen Our Bullshit Detectors!" - finally!
Mouse on over to the sidebar or the "Free Fitness Industry Guidebook" tab to download your copy! No email address, you won't get added to any unwanted newsletters, just click to download.
This one has been a long time in the making and I'm already thinking forward to something much larger. I must have cut out at least 20 pages of material just to trim it down to a reasonable size. In any case, I put a fair amount of time into this one so please let me know what you think once you get through it - and if you enjoyed it pass it along to a friend. I encourage sharing.
Next on the chop block: "The Virgin Diet" by JJ Virgin
This one is going to be a lot of work. I've only gotten through the first 2 chapters so far and there's a lot to learn as well as a lot to critique already.
The premise is that the root of all our weight woes is food intolerance. A lofty claim with a lot of smaller parts that each need to be addressed. I was spoiled by Harper's books since he would provide references to many of his claims - no such luck here. I foresee a lot of time exploring PubMed in my future.
I'll probably be needing to get some outside help on this one, so if you are or know anyone who would be a good source for information on:
- Gut bacteria
- 'Anti-nutrients' such as gluten and lectin
and would be willing to help out, let's get in touch!
Openings for Online Training
There's another shiny new tab at the top - I'm opening up some time to take on a few more online clients, hooray!
While in the past I've taken clients for almost any goal, I'd really like to start fine-tuning and tailoring my approach. I'm looking for beginner clients - ones who don't have a ton of experience with training and exercise, maybe having never even stepped foot in a gym!
Since it's fairly niche, I'm always looking for other online providers to refer out to if someone who inquires isn't a good match.
In any case, that about wraps up my announcements for now! Let's close out with one of my favorite puppy videos:
