Last year, the Online Trainer Academy — the world’s first certification program for online trainers — sold out all of its textbooks in just days. I’m glad I made the smart decision to enroll in the Academy alongside people like:
- Freedom-seeking trainers who wanted a full-time online coaching business.
If you, like me, fit into any of the above categories, I’m excited to let you know that the day has finally come (and it only happens once a year): The Online Trainer Academy is about to open for early bird enrolment again!
I strongly recommend checking it out. There’s no commitment to put yourself on the early bird list (and you’ll save $200 if you decide to enrol when the time comes). Put yourself on the early bird list to reserve your spot and lock in on this month’s savings!
I don’t make this recommendation lightly. I’m a graduate of this program - somebody who has completed the materials and passed the test.
The business curriculum in the Academy is game-changing. I have never seen information like this so curated, assembled, and polished. It has help me not only take care of my remote clients better, but I’ve used the practical, simple-to-implement strategies I learned to build an efficient and scalable online business structure.
Jonathan Goodman, the founder of the Academy, asked if I wanted to share this exciting news with you and I couldn’t be happier. If you want to take charge of your personal and professional freedom and really build a strong, sustainable online fitness business, get yourself on the OTA wait list.
When you’re on the early bird list, you’ll:
- Save $200 off of the enrollment fee.
If you ever wanted to build the fitness business of your dreams and transform your personal training career into something that you’re proud of, don’t miss your chance.
Walk into any big box grocery store, local Mom and Pop store or standard chain grocery store and the first thing you see is everything that you DON'T need and DIDN'T come for. Manage to walk past that first minefield and think you're safe in the produce section? Think again. Next to those beautiful apples are bags of caramels, tubs of sugar-laden fruit dip and chocolate for melting and dipping. Break free from those landmines and hit the safe 'perimeter' of the store and you've just run into a display of baked goods in the shape of a football! Run past that section with your blinders on, grab the item you came to get and you're home free in the end zone...AFTER you stand in line surrounded by more candy, energy shots, beef jerky, cookies, chips, and a cooler full of sugary coffees, teas, and sodas.
I'm not going to lie. This blog is risky. Why? For starters, it's the first blog on my new site and secondly, because there's nothing I can say in the world of health, fitness, and wellness that either hasn't already been said or has been said in a much more creative way than I can communicate. So this blog represents a turn. A turn toward some brutal honesty. I crave this. My guess is, you do too. So today I'd like to introduce you to someone I don't really like...at all.
I call her 'Mean Girl' and she lives in my mirror.
The Undervalued 1% Better
Not in my studio and not in my life. Real, lasting change happens slowly. Sure it makes for great TV to see someone push themselves to the edge and make staggering strides toward weight loss and health goals but that type of activity is not sustainable and often leads to injury, disordered eating patterns, and a sense of defeat.
Feeling 'untethered' over the past few months since my mom's death. Not having her in this world has left a gaping hole in my heart that feels at times like it will swallow me whole. And strangely, her passing has increased the depth of loss I feel regarding my dad.
*This is part of a series of blogs written during my mom's battle with pancreatic cancer which ended April 13, 2018.
I've just come from spending the last 11 days with my mom who is battling pancreatic cancer. She's completed a full round of chemo and just finished her first 5 of 28 radiation treatments. While I was there, I spent the week doing a 'kitchen makeover' for her. Ditched all of the out of date foods, the processed foods that make her feel sick and filled the fridge with colorful fruits and veggies and cooked and prepped her freezer full of meals for the next 30 days. That was the easy part.
There are few topics that raise my ire like the topic of added sugar.
Now, understand that:
#1. I am a nutrition nerd and I eat up, pardon the pun, research on this particular topic. My shelves are lined with textbooks, research books and anecdotal books all about nutrition and how what we eat, or better yet, what our bodies absorb nutritionally really does matter not only in our bodies but also for our brains and our planet.

Simply put, I love life. I love the body, all things healthy, all types of movement and a good belly laugh. My hope is to share some of my experience and knowledge with you so that you can love YOUR life and be an influencer of others.
