Don’t Chastise Me for Eating Healthy

Dangers of drinking water in excess

On August 20th, I provided ideas to make drinking water taste better to encourage everyone to drink more fluids.

Best time to exercise

“When is the best time to exercise?” I was recently asked. It really depends on the individual, when they have the time, and the most amount of energy. I know that if I don’t exercise first thing in the morning, it will never get done. Some people are not morning people, or they don’t have […]

A client asked me how many times a week he should work with a trainer. It really depends on your goals and your budget.
