I'm a Christian, husband, father and entrepreneur. My focus here is to help you make small changes to your lifestyle that have a big, positive impact on your quality and length of life. Gradually, I want you to learn to adjust accordingly on your own so you won't need me anymore. I know...unheard of.
I've been training athletes and gym-goers for about 19 years. I catch a lot of crap from personal trainers on my approach to fitness because much of it isn't "by the book". I don't care. My trainees are strong, healthy and educated when I'm done with them.
I've moved a lot of weight over the years though you wouldn't think it by looking at me now since I tip the scales at 170lbs. In my defense, I'm usually around 5-6% bodyfat. My records are as follows for a minimum of two reps: deadlift - 425lbs, squat - 365lbs, bench press 245lbs. I know how to get strong the wrong way (actually many ways) and the right way (only one way). I'm currently making progress toward regaining that strength.
I like to run shorter distances of usually less than 3 miles and incorporate bodyweight exercises and calisthenics along the way. It certainly keeps my ego in check.
You don't have to go to a gym but you must know that EXERCISE IS NECESSARY! I don't care if you push-mow your lawn, throw bails of hay around all day, work construction or work on someone's nerves from your desk. You have to move around and do some weight-bearing exercise almost every day! Don't fight me on this. You will not win.
Though I've been giving nutritional advice for over 20 years, I just became 'certified' in 2011 as a Nutritional Consultant to lend some credibility to my name for those unfamiliar with my knowledge and skills. I see it as a formality only. I'm also board certified as a Holistic Health Practitioner by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
I like how Dr. Saul's website says it: Any form of self-treatment or alternative health program necessarily must involve an indvidual's acceptance of some risk, and no one should assume otherwise.
