GT Get Fit Tip: Train for Your Body Type

Do you do Elliptical for cardio?

How bout drops sets on leg day?

When’s the last time you did anaerobic threshold training?

The type of training you do at the gym and how you feed yourself throughout the day may be keeping you from achieving desired results.

Knowing the science behind your body type can save you many hours in the gym and more time outside doing things you enjoy.

What ‘s your body type?

Look at Arnold – what kind of body type does he have?  This was the CA Gov!!

Luckiest Personal Trainer in Bowling Green, KY

I can not believe I am alive and well this present day!

Luckily enough I was born in the 1970’s and to make it all this way to 2010 and have access to the internet and social media,WOW!I say to people all the time no telling what my world would be like if I had text messaging when I was kid.

Being in the health and fitness business and to think back at all the great leaders and fitness trainers from the past and to see the healthy footprint they have left on society, by utilizing the very basics of human function and necessity (movement and food).   On the flip side it’s amazing to me the abundance of people who are either unaware or in denial about how they look and feel about themselves.

I’m here to change that.

I do not have a wife or kids but I was lucky enough to have two parents that raised me and my brothertill death did them part, and from that I have an appreciation for family, loyalty,  and respect.

There is also a wonderful group of various people that come together almost like family everyday to my studio and through a habitude  of nutrition and fitness they motivate themselves from what they once were, to go out and inspire and help make change in the lives of  friends and loved ones.

These people have a loyalty and respect for themselves and what it means to be a productive piece of  society for the betterment of our human kind.  People like these are looked up too and set apart to be made examples for others to follow, for that I commend them.

Today with Blogging, Facebook and Twitter like-minded people have the chance to meet others and together make an immediate impact in the health and well being of a whole group, city or state.

I know this because it is happening, and for somebody like myself, to be amongst and surrounded by some of the greatest people you could have ever met, in a city that has so much future growth and potential, I consider myself the luckiest personal trainer in Bowling Green, KY just to be here and a part of it all.

I’m Pissed off at everyone

I’m pissed off at everyone.  I’m pissed off at what they say and do.

Everyone says they are going to eat healthy and walk more.

Everyone encourages to conserve gas and oil.

Everyone says they wash their hands before dinner.

Everyone insist you should get a degree.

Everyone pledges they listen to the customer and do what they say.

Everyone knows our Kentucky is unhealthy.

Everyone has an excuse.

That’s why I’m pissed off at everyone.

Every one of you that says something and does NOTHING!!!

Get up, get fit, GET TONED
