005 – John Maxwell on Winning and Learning…


The guru John Maxwell writes some amazing books.  One quote of his that I have fully embraced is “Sometimes You Win and Sometimes You Learn.”  This weekend I spent watching my daughter compete in the state championship soccer tournament.  They didn’t win all the games but they did place 3rd.  They will get better by playing against. A team that played better then them but it only made them better.  Life is like this.  Listen for more on this podcast.

004 – Wake Up and Goals People!


In this podcast we talk about a ritual a mentor of mine Peter Hurley does every day on his instagram.  Every day he wakes up and records his wake up and goals.

We should be striving to accomplish goals in our lives.  Some of our biggest goals in life take daily goals that are smaller in nature but when done consistently help us to accomplish what we want to do.  Lose weight, get out of debt, learn a new skill, adopt a new hobby.  All of these take time.  Get up and prime your mind.  Tony Robbins calls this priming.  Wake up and set some goals.

003 – What do you do when you are faced with a problem?


Welcome to the daily impact.  Today we are discussing what do you do when you are faced with a problem?  Most people give up.  Most people look for the path of least resistance.  Embrace the problem and look at it as an opportunity.  An opportunity to learn, grow, and overcome obstacles as they come.

Intermittent Fasting and Keto – How I will use my Apple Watch to track.

I have been so frustrated with my weight loss journey over the past year. It has been a roller coaster and it has been really hard. This coming from a person who used to compete in bodybuilding and was able to get down to 3 or 4 percent body fat. Now that I am older it has been a real struggle as it has been for many other people. It’s not easy. I still weight train 3 – 6 days a week for an hour each session, ride bikes for miles every week and I am still fat and not happy with the way I look. I could lose 60lbs. It really shows that 80% of the work is done in the kitchen.

This week I started following an intermittent fasting routine. I have used Keto for many years and used to use Keto when I competed in bodybuilding. Recently I was watching a vlog from Professional Photographer Peter Hurley who just recently competed in a world championship sailing competition in Japan. Peter lost 40lbs and shared how he did it on his blog. I decided to record a video and do a weekly check in video and post it on YouTube to hold myself accountable.

If you have watch my YouTube video’s or read my blog you will know I’m a huge fan of using tech to help accomplish goals. My Apple Watch and Apple iPhone are a huge part of my daily routine. Peter Hurley is using an app called zero.

In this video I show you how to use a combination of apps on the Apple Watch to get that optimal workout in the gym.  Far too often I see people just going through the movements in the gym and not taking the time to feel the muscle in the proper form and to put the muscle through the proper load.  That is why you see people in the gym not focusing, not doing the proper load, and one year later they look the exact same if not in many cases they look more out of shape but go to the gym every day.  Time Under Tension or TUT is one of the most critical aspects of exercise that far too many people over look.  This video shows you how I use a combination of apps to ensure you get that Time Under Tension for the targeted interval .  Through this process let the Apple Watch do your counting of reps and time so you can focus on form and contracting the targeted muscle through each workout.
