How to Train by Listening to Your Body

If there is one thing I believe about training, it should be fun. For any of you who have ever had a strength coach, you may question the version of fun we have versus your definition of fun. But, think about a time you got done with a really tough training session. You were tired, […]

Lats NOW, Summer Body Later!

If there is one constant during Wisconsin winters, it’s traditions that involve staying warm. And by staying warm, I mean putting a good layer of insulation on via consumption of Brandy Old Fashioneds, Tom and Jerry’s, holiday treats and a delicious Prime Rib! Those are just some of my favorites, I’m sure you have yours. […]

Why We Love to Coach at FIT

Coaching for us at FIT isn’t just something we do as a job. It’s our passion. I want to be specific about this because it’s not our passion to train ourselves daily and show off our gains to our Athletes. Nor is it about coming in and finding new ways to make our Athletes pay […]

Parents Need to Take Time for Their Health!

As a father of twin daughters, I know the struggles of being a parent and trying to stay healthy. In a typical environment, we have the stress of keeping them active, keeping them from causing too much harm to themselves or each other plus actually fostering a home environment of learning and development. It’s a […]

Dec. 2020 – The BEST Healthy Holiday Eating Advice Ever!

Ladies and Gentlemen, something all of us have been wanting to hear for a long time, 2021 is right around the corner! Usually, the holiday season is a time of celebration for many, followed by regret and then a renewed energy to better oneself as the New Year approaches. I don’t think this year will […]

Personalizing Your Training with a Heart Rate Monitor

I remember back in high school we occasionally had to wear heart rate monitors for gym class. You got graded on your level of exertion. However, a few of us were athletes and going through gym class was a far cry from the level of exertion we experienced playing basketball or football. So, of course, […]

Staying Physically Active is Critical for Your Mental Health

If someone were to ask me, “what is the biggest reason potential clients reach out to us for training?” the answer is NOT what you think. It’s not fat loss. It’s not athletic performance. And it’s not muscle gain. They want accountability from REAL people! Listen, it’s been established over and over, we are neurologically […]

Quick Workout to Crush Between Zoom Meetings

“Zoom fatigue” was not a phase understood by many at the start of 2020. In fact, I don’t think I had ever heard it prior to a few months ago. But now, EVERYONE has Zoom and has probably gone through a phase where you feel absolutely crushed, like after a hard workout, but haven’t done […]

2020 Winter, Why is it Different From a Health Perspective?

The typical conversation I have with at least one new client in March (we will call our potential new client Rex): Rex: “Yeah, I have our Spring Break trip coming up at the end of this month and want to look great on the beach.” Me: “Cool, I think that’s a possibility, what have you […]

Make Push Ups Fun Again? (or maybe for the first time!)

Push ups get a bad name. Mostly, I think, because few people are ever taught how to do them correctly and are therefore put into a situation where they are likely to be unsuccessful when they do them. For example, I can recall being forced to do push ups when someone didn’t listen to Coach […]
