Fitness is NOT a number on the scale.

Fitness is NOT defined by six-pack-abs or the size of your biceps.

Fitness is NOT how many push-ups, pull-ups or sit-ups you can complete in 60 seconds.

Total body Fitness is more than that – it is the whole freakin’ package:

Fitness is improved cardiovascular health – as you have progressed through your daily exercise routines following the XFNC program, you will have noticed that you can breathe easier and not get out of breath as quickly or dramatically.

Fitness is improved core strength and stability making you more functional and better balanced in daily life.

Fitness is FAT loss – NOT weight loss.

You notice it in the mirror and by how your clothes fit.  You hear it from friends and loved ones when they comment on how much better you look.

Most importantly – You Feel Better! More energetic and just plain healthier – mentally and physically, from head to toe.

You have to make the decision today at the fork of the road into your future by walking down the path that leads to fitness – daily exercise, daily good nutrition habits, doing your best to identify the stress in your life and then doing something to reduce or eliminate it and getting your daily adequate rest.

There will be obstacles along the path.  You may experience opposing influence from others. And some setbacks are expected – but YOU can do this and ONLY YOU can do this!

OR you can keep doing what you always did and you’ll keep getting what you always got!

Fitness does not come in a pill, a restrictive “diet”, a device or a six minute workout.

You have to want it.

You have to work for it.





Fitness is the REWARD – it is the prize at the end of the path you traversed combining daily exercise, daily good nutrition choices, adequate rest and mental well-being.



You have to make choices today, and every day, that your future self will thank you for.

Mortality – Acceptable Level of Risk

Mortality – the state of being subject to death. This will be a more personal post as it pertains to thoughts/feelings regarding an activity of mine which brings me to another life-changing decision. At this juncture I have decided to discontinue riding my motorcycle thereby once again changing my path. This will be a surprise…

Flexibility – How Flexible Do You Really Need To Be?

The term Flexible is defined as “capable of being bent, usually without breaking.” It’s the  “usually without breaking” part that can be problematic and painful! Sports Medicine Docors today are treating Yoga injuries more regularly than ever before, especially for the knees and lower back.  Hot Yoga and Power Yoga classes are growing in popularity…


Should I include alcohol in my daily nutrition plan? How much alcohol is too much? Am I an alcoholic? Does that last question make you uncomfortable? Even if you are drinking too much – too often, almost everyone’s answer to that question is no! It was for me. Wait a minute, I have read lately…

Your Brain on Exercise

Exercise is as good for the brain as it is for the body, if not better. In fact it is the single best thing you can do to keep your brain young. Improving your brain function may not be on your mind today.  Like most, you may be taking for granted that it will always…
