Frequently I dig through my notes (that date back years) and find myself getting more “aha” moments from those old notes than I do from anything new that I’ve learned.
Last week I stumbled across an old 5-year journal that housed some coaching secrets that I rarely discuss. One of those secrets is the solution to the common bottleneck that many coaches run into when it comes to getting their clients continued results with training and nutrition.
In this episode I also reveal some of the things that I’ve learned from the masters that have not only helped me get results for my clients, but also help myself.

Even if you successfully transform your body, which we see here quite often at Vigor Ground, so much more goes happens other than just dropping pants sizes or adding slabs of muscle.
You look drastically different, yes…But your mindset shifts into a powerful place.
Your certainty and confidence in everything you do and say is in a completely different, and higher, position. When your mindset shifts and you show up with a confidence and certainty that matches your appearance, you treat every single relationship you have differently – you show up as a different man.
When you can transform your body, shift your mindset, and show up as a new man in your relationships, your business goes through the roof. Continue reading →

Ask any random guy on the street if they’d like to increase their testosterone levels, regardless if they’re low or if they even know where their levels are at, and I guarantee he’ll say yes.
It’s the nature of man. We know that testosterone plays a huge role in what makes a man manly, so we naturally want more of it.
The sad part is that 1 in 4 men have low testosterone levels, at all ages.

These studies are dated back a few years and to be completely honest, my guess is that it’s even worse now because many of the things that cause low testosterone levels are getting more and more prevalent in todays society.
But before you freak out and call your doctor for TRT, there’s good news too… You can reverse this, avoid this decline, and take your man card back once and for all – that’s exactly what I’ll be helping you do today. Continue reading →
