A Few Words On Gratitude

I know, I know, it’s that time of year when most people are showing their gratitude to the people, circumstances and opportunities in their lives. I’ll be no exception this week. Gratitude is something I always have to keep front of mind for myself: when life is good and especially, when life isn’t as good […]

We Are Not On The Same Page About Weight Loss Medications

Navigating the health landscape can be dicey, even for those of us who make a living being involved in it. There’s an old joke and I’ll use “fat loss coaches” as the subject to highlight my point. How many fat loss coaches does it take to screw in a lightbulb? One to screw it in […]

Because Music Will Never Leave You

Coming off the heels of last week’s detour, writing about Britney Spears (interestingly one of my most popular articles of the year), I got caught up in a social media thread about my Top 30 albums. I was able to fly through the first ten to fifteen rather quickly and then it all started to […]

Sympathy For Britney

Those who know me know how much I love music. I’m often unfairly opinionated and I know that taste is subjective. I have never cared for Britney Spears’ music. I have never listened to one of her albums. I have never seen her in concert. I, like many of you, have heard most of her […]

“Good” Girl, “Bad” Girl Fat Loss

I’m kicking off the soft launch of my first online group coaching program “Fat Loss Simplified” this week. If you missed the intake, I’ll be firing it back up for the official launch in January 2024. The first week of the 8-week program is centered around mindset and for good reason. I believe that once […]

Beyond The Training Floor

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to update everyone on all of the services we’re able to offer here. If you’re local to Stow, Ohio, we’d love for you to come to the studio and train with us. We’ve been a semi-private personal training studio since I opened our doors in 2009. Per […]

Nine Years Later…In Sickness And In Health

Thinking back on our vows, it’s easy to let time corrode what you promise to give one another. It’s easy to get complacent. It’s easy to let a flame go out. It takes work to keep things going, through good and bad, and be able to look at your partner and say: I’m still in […]

Stop, Savor, Breathe

There appears to be two opposing forces in our lives: The one that begs you to hustle and grind and the one that urges you to pause and find calm. Both have value but it’s a delicate balance trying to find when to switch one off and turn the other on. Our phones, our inbox, […]

Seven Steps I Took To Heal My Trauma

There are some scenarios that stay with you for a lifetime. For me, I was sexually abused by my babysitter sometime around kindergarten and first grade. Not having the emotional or mental maturity to handle it back then, I managed to stuff the experience away until I was in my late teens when a friend […]

The Fight For Time

When I started RevFit back in 2009, I knew my mornings would start early. Clients wanted to be able to train before they went to work, which meant that training would start roughly around 5-530am each weekday. Early mornings (with a 20-25 minute commute from home) meant going early to bed so that I could […]
