Hey! Our Lean by Halloween Challenge registration is on 🔥right now. Click here to get your spot:I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it but also about fat loss and it got me thinking as to what we address with the program and why it is so successful. So with that in mind I created 10 reasons you’re not losing body fat focusing on the problems that the Lean by Halloween program solves. You eat too many calories It’s just simple science. We can talk about macros and hormones and things like that that actually do play a role but whatever the problem is it ultimately leads to a result that does not allow us to burn body fat You don’t eat enough  Yes, this seems to directly contradict the point above but not entirely. There are some people who have dieted too long that experience an adaptation to...

What does your body fat tell you about your health?We have a clinical grade scale that we use at my gym to help determine each client’s bodyfat %. See, we don’t really care about how much you weigh or the number on the scale. We do however care about what makes up that weight.That is why we track our fat loss client’s bodyfat % to determine their progress NOT their weight It’s a really simple procedure (it takes like 30 seconds). It’s  not like the old days when I would have to use calipers a.k.a “the pinchy things” after just meeting someone.I would literally grab an adult stranger’s naked skin, pull it and pinch it.I can’t believe I wasn’t slapped more…On a more serious note, I’m glad that we can offer this in a simple non-invasive way because the number is important.If you look at the chart that I’ve included...

Did you have fun this summer? Maybe a little too much fun? I know I did. In fact, I’m thinking of one particular August day. It was hot, I was already uncomfortable. My clothes were sticking to my skin and even though the heat made me not want to eat…I was somehow still hungry.That was probably because of the beer I had been drinking or the chips and pretzels I had been picking at…That potato salad had been sitting on the counter long enough to make it through the first two Godfather movies …but still I was going to risk it..Ahh.. the summer partyMaybe you had a moment like this this past summer?See, the crazy thing that I’ve been hearing from clients and that I’ve experienced from myself is just how our schedules seem to have shifted.The old thought was that you’d only have to worry about packing on some...

Hey!Let me tell you one thing I cannot stand about my wife…She gets things done so early.I tend to fall towards procrastinator, Let me know if you can relate…While I did well in school, I was the guy who hung out with friends, played sports, watched TV or did pretty much anything else in the world other than the paper that was due…Until the night before…The night before I was huddled over a keyboard with a lamp like an old time newspaper journalist rushing to make his submission…and why?Deadlines.Deadlines are powerful stuff.Don’t believe me?Think of all of the times you’ve actually put in the work after dragging your feet:Due Date for bills…Order now to arrive for Christmas…Sale ends tonight…It’s no different when it comes to actually losing weight or getting in shape…No one NEEDS to lose weight for Oct 12th…But it may be different if it is your wedding… Or...

“ I will check in one time per week with you to give you my thoughts on how to best live your life”Ok.Hey! I hope you had a great weekend. The Phillies swept, The Eagles won and my kids made it through the weekend unscathed. All in all a success.The above quote was one that I took from a friend’s social media account. Now I don’t mean any ill will but when I saw this I was intrigued. I clicked on the post and did a little investigation and saw that they are now selling their services as a “Mystic Life Coach”Apparently a mystic life coach (I’m not sure if that should be capitalized) reads your energy and helps weigh that with their experience to give you advice on how you should best move forward.Cool. Hey, maybe they do. I don’t know.What I do know, is that if you scroll...
