People generally think they can manipulate their tissues by using a foam roller, lacrosse ball, barbell, boulder (you never know), anything at all. Dr. Quinn Henoch said something to me at…

“What You Think Determines Your Experience”

“What You Think Determines Your Experience”

“What You Think Determines Your Experience” I had the opportunity to do the Civilian Military Combine this weekend with my colleagues and friends from LIFW.  It was an amazing experience, but it didn’t start out that way.  I’ve always embraced the philosophy ‘what you think about determines your reality,’ but that morning I needed a…

Personal Training at LIFW isn’t just a job….It’s an Art

We asked on Twitter what quality was most important to people when it comes to their trainer? The options were certifications/knowledge, celebrity/well-known, looks the part and “gets me.” (We didn’t offer the option of “gets results” because we assume that that is the #1 thing clients need and want in a trainer duh!). Overwhelmingly, people…

Workout Nutrition Part 1

Hacking Workout Nutrition Part I: Building a Foundation. Maria Schweitzer   Many of us have a general idea of what to eat, but what about eating when it comes to exercise? There’s a lot of information thrown out there on the internet and things can get quite confusing, but I’m here to simplify and break down some key habits that will get you eating better and performing better. Most of us aren’t professional athletes or olympians, and many of us would probably fall somewhere into the category of average people who exercise for general health and…

“The Mind is Everything. What you think you become”

“The Mind is Everything.  What you think you become” -Buddha   Richard Drake Truly simple; I love this quote because it hits a deep cord with the fundamental power that we have within our own mind.  Our mind is everything – we organize the world around us with our perceptions of reality.  We develop a…
