Creating Structure for Success

I don’t know how I ever worked out before I had structure.  Accountability. It always felt like a mental fight with myself to get up and do even a light workout.  I’ve been struggling with getting myself to be active after college and it gets harder the...

Fitting In

So throughout my whole childhood I always found myself as kind of the outcast when it came to sports and fitness.  I was always a little overweight and struggled to do some of the things that most of the kids were able to do easily. I truly wanted to get healthier and...
