Learning Through the Pandemic

I hope today finds everyone healthy, enjoying summer, and both training for and achieving peak performances. Today I’d like to recognize that we are all still in this ever-evolving situation regarding the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic and offer some perspectives on lessons that we may have learned, or should have learned, from this crisis. #1 First of all, we are…

Get Hard to Kill!

Are you hard to kill? Because that’s what I’d like to be and I’d certainly like to see you be the same. Hard to kill is being strong, fast, mobile and durable. You die late, healthy, and fast. The alternative is to be weak, slow, stiff, and fragile. This equates to expiring early, sick, and slowly. For the most part,…

Looking Back and Looking Forward

I always find this time of year to be an engaging one. Whether it’s necessary or not, many of us will be looking back at the previous year and reflecting. We’ll think about the high and low points, and what we learned or enjoyed. And we often take a few notes, mental or otherwise, of what worked and what didn’t…

Warm Wishes, Musings, and Updates

Can you believe it’s December already? I hope you had a great Thanksgiving celebration and got some killer deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I also hope you are approaching year-end in good health, with a positive outlook, and with most of your ducks in a row. December, or year-end, means different things to many of us. In business,…

Target Your Goal, Take Off in Pursuit, and Soar to Great Heights!

Any questions? Sounds good and makes sense…right? I think we’ve all heard that advice before, but let me explain why I’m offering it up right now.

Removing Splinters From Your Health and Fitness

In all probability, every one of us can readily recognize the familiar nuisance of a splinter in our finger. It’s usually not exquisitely painful, but it certainly can be annoying. However, in many cases, we are barely aware that it is there, and we can generally tolerate its presence until we get around to removing it. The splinter is quite…

Ergonomics and Health in the Workplace

The three major words in the title of this message relate to each other in very interesting ways. Ergonomics is the study of a person’s efficiency at work. This involves how he/she functions, what is produced, and what are the costs — particularly in terms of wear and tear on the body. Health has many global definitions. At work, health…

Feast, Fight, Flee, and Fornicate…for LIFE!

F4! Where can I sign up for that? Or at least 2 out of 4! All joking aside, the four items in the title may be the true parallels between ancient and modern life. Whether you are considering the primal drives of the earliest humans, medieval life patterns like those in Game of Thrones, or the most basic endeavors of…

Kick Ass for Life!

Kicking Ass is a term that each of us can relate to in one fashion or another. In Lifetime Body terminology, it is not just the act of getting things done —  it is the reality of efficiently and effectively achieving high levels of outcomes across every category in which you participate in life. Some would say you are “crushing…

2018 to 2019 – Reflections and Appreciation

Happy Holidays! I hope that you have been enjoying the season and all the great things that come with it. As I sit by the woodstove (might sound corny but is true) and put fingers to keyboard, I’m finding myself in a particular state of mind. I’m struggling to frame this perspective, but I think I can capture it with…
