I am not a personal trainer, nor do I want to be.  I am a husband and dad of 4 amazing kids.  I work a full-time job and somehow make time for surfing and music. But my real passion has become fitness and health. Maybe I am in the beginning stages of a mid-life crisis, I don’t know, but I LOVE working out. Before you make a judgment and think I’m some kind of health nut, I am NOT. I love Diet Dr. Pepper and chocolate croissants among many other “unhealthy” things. I love them so much I drink and eat them more days than not.

Now, after years of experimentation, I want to share what I’ve learned with as many dads as possible. I want share simple advice and information that I wish people had told me when I started. Perhaps much of this information is stuff that a personal trainer could have shared, but based on what I see trainers doing with their clients, it’s not likely.

(That “before” picture was THE picture that made me think about getting in shape)
