1. Thanksgiving 101

    It is Thanksgiving. The time for friends, family and food. Hold up…let’s be honest…it’s all about the food. JUST KIDDING! I am BEYOND grateful that I could to do what I do every day which is help people find balance with their life through fitness and health. I couldn’t be more blessed I g…Read More

  2. Master the Program or Master the Technique

    Does the program matter if everything else sucks? I don’t want to have a debate over what type of program is best or what type of program elicits the biggest gains, the most sweat, or the most likes on Instagram. I think many different programs can work and to be honest its more about execution th…Read More

  3. Balance: Don’t use it, you lose it.

    When writing an exercise prescription, there are both health and skill-related components of physical fitness. For general population, more times than not, the skill related components of fitness are overlooked or undertrained. The focus for exercise of general population has been geared towards ton…Read More

  4. *Insert Pec Dance Here

    A couple months ago I wrote a blog, “How to Build a Booty.” If you didn’t get a chance to read it here is the link: http://www.forge-rx.com/how-to-build-a-booty/ And since I wrote a post for the ladies I think it is only fair I write one for the dudes. Am I right? Plus, we all know a well defi…Read More

  5. Calisthenics: Are They Missing From Your Routine?

    When I hear calisthenics, the first thing that comes to mind is my elementary school P.E. class. Mr. Judkins is a dude I will never forget, the biggest Tennessee Volunteers fan you’d ever meet and said his days of the week with a “dee” instead of “day”. Mondee we did arm circles, bear craw…Read More

  6. The Window of Gains

    Did I getcha on the title? There is a lot of chatter about… “Don’t lose out on the window of gains!” For the longest time I thought that right after my last rep of my workout I had to IMMEDIATELY down my protein shake or I will lose out on building that hard earned muscle. You can thank the …Read More

  7. My Thoughts on Meal Prepping

    With anything nutrition my thought process is always to find what works for you. My job as a nutrition coach is to listen to my client and give them what I think will work his or her lifestyle. Within my conversations with my clients too many of them think meal prepping means 5 hours on a Sunday!. I…Read More

  8. Adherence Is The Name Of The Game

    I am sure we could argue all day about what diet is the best, or what the research says about a diet. Sugar is bad, gluten or no gluten, low carb or high carb. Blah, blah, blah. It is a waste of my time and I will leave it for the zealots out there. But what we can’t argue about (I hope) is that a…Read More

  9. Keep it Simple and Stick to the Basics

    We live in a world made up of short attention spans. It has become place over run with gimmicks, shiny new objects, and Apple’s ability to sell anything outside of a big bag of dog poop (actually they could probably sell it if they wanted to). We don’t just drive cars anymore, we have to have a …Read More

  10. Drink More …Water

    We all know we need water to survive (just one of the big reasons we have life here on Earth). But are you drinking enough? I’m sure you aren’t the only one. With America being one of the largest consumers of soda it’s not surprising that so many people are lacking in the whole “drinking eno…Read More
