It does not matter your dream or how old you are you can always do what you want to do....
My dad had severe asthma at around 8 years old so bad he was in bed for most of his elementary and Jr around 7-8 years. The Drs told my Grandma he would not make it through the winter.

Forward 72 years later to the age of 80, he just had  a valve reconstruction from a cows valve. He still drives and is very independent. I never thought my Dad had any real hobby or talent per say. Well I guess I was wrong, and surprised. My dad sent me this today:


For as long as I can remember I was there, at the bottom edge of a long board. You couldn’t miss me for I had a unique design embedded in my surface.  Every time someone came in and cut a length from off the board, that drew me closer to being “the piece” that will be used in some furniture (maybe a table top).  Sadly, when I became the last remaining piece, I was tossed aside and put on the cheap shelf; no one liked my unique design.  I don’t remember how long I stayed there but, in early October, 2014, Bob came and picked me up and measured me all over.  I was exactly the size he needed. On my plain side he traced a strange design he said was that of a Human Heart cut open.

I mentioned the unique design on my back side, well Bob turned that into his left hand holding me up.

Thanks Bob for rescuing me and starting me on this Long Journey.

My dads heart surgeon, he will be using this hand carved heart made by by Dad at age 80 to teach students coming into the faculty.

So why did I blog about this today. Well quite frankly I hear excuses upon excuses why people cannot so what they say they want to do. It is never ending. You are in charge of your own choices not the economy, not your age, not your spouse, not your anything. YOU. You must be prepared to make your dreams and goals happen for you. Don't let something simple like never doing something before, maybe being scared or maybe your age.
Let life slip away or grab it and run! Choices it all comes down to you!

What makes a GREAT TRAINER?

I just got a text from my cousin...20 years old wanting to be a trainer. Travelled all the way from Ontario to Calgary a year ago. She was excited with herself, she could hold a plank for 3.5 min in that plank challenge going around. So as my duty as great cousin and well I think pretty good trainer, I had to say something. I mean my job is also to mentor and inspire others to do what I do. In the end the community, city and country only benefits.

So I had to explain why planking for 3.5 min and up to 10 min is not beneficial. I also explained that every exercise and challenge you see on the internet is not always correct, safe or even makes sense? I let her know she could be a average trainer or a great one, which one will she be?

You see this is what I do, it's not a fad, its not a part time job. I spent years at University to do what I do. I spend thousands on training, certifications and hours upon hours reviewing the latest research. Why? it is my job as not only a good trainer.... a Master Trainer.

Yes big gyms are popping up with ridiculous low prices.
What do they offer?
Groupon.... what do they offer, inexperienced trainers grabbing at clients because they have not been experienced enough to build their clients...I have also seen "fly by night trainers" they take your money and no where to be seen again.


Do they offer results, do they guarantee results?

Do they offer education, tools and motivation?

I do not know about you, but I do not want to waste time or money.

I offer the experience, I offer RESULTS.
I am in the process of putting up a WALL OF FAME in my studio. All the ladies and MEN that have seen results in 30 days. No gimmicks, no pills, no starving yourself and no ridiculous challenges or cleanses.

You do what I say, RESULTS follow. It's is that simple.

I believe in you, believe in you too.
