From the Author
I myself and others that have come to me for coaching have wondered these things:
- How can I eat healthy and exercise when I'm on a busy schedule?
- How do I stay motivated and stick to a healthy diet when I have emotional food cravings?
- How can I keep myself from falling back into bad habits and actually stick with my fitness goals over the long haul?
- How do I workout when I don't have access to a gym.
- How can I afford to eat healthy foods when everything at a health food store is so expensive?
- Do I really need to take supplements and if so, is a multivitamin enough?
- Why can't I overcome XYZ health condition even though I eat right and exercise?
There are plenty of books out there that show people what they "should" and "shouldn't" do. But what about the information on how to actually apply that stuff when "life" gets in the way?
Through thousands of hours of researching the techniques of the world's best personal trainers, coaches, and psychologists, I've discovered answers to all of these questions and more.
"50 Fitness Tips You Wish You Knew" is the distilled wisdom of the some of the world's best all in one easy to read guide that provides tips and lifestyles "hacks" I wish I had when I first started.
Some of the things in this book will be brand new to many people, particularly if they're just starting out. But there is also a heavy focus on the common sense tactics we all know we need to do to be healthier (like manage stress and get more sleep) with a new perspective on how to follow through with those things.
Let me give you a few examples so you get started right away applying this information in your life and see the benefits for yourself.
Most people know sleep is important to good health. But did you know that one of the best ways to get a good nights sleep is to sleep grounded? Sleeping grounded will quickly normalize the body's cortisol levels and may help you finally get one of the most relaxing nights of sleep ever.

You'll learn even more about grounding and other tips for getting a good nights sleep when you read Tip 5: "Secrets To Serene Sleep"
Most people know the benefits of probiotics on health. But did you know that not all probiotic strains are created equal?
An inexpensive probiotic called "Saccharomyces Boulardii" has been shown to uniquely raise levels of sIgA, an important part of the immune system. This probiotic may also enhance the effectiveness of any other probiotic you take by restoring gut homeostasis.

You'll learn even more tips for utilizing and maximizing the benefits from probiotics when you read Tip 25: "The Missing Link To Good Health"
Most people know setting goals is important. But did you know you can change two words when setting a goal to instantly increase your motivation?
Take the words "I want" when stating a goal such as "I want to lose 30 pounds" and replace those words with "I choose."
State "I choose to lose 30 pounds" (or whatever your goal is) and see if you notice a difference in how you feel.
You'll learn even more tips for setting the right kind of goals and ensuring you reach them when you read Tip 14: "Goals - Overrated or Essential"
These are just samples of "tricks" you'll find in the chapters on sleep, probiotics, and setting goals. These "tips within tips" make this more like "500 Fitness Tips You Wish You Knew."
I've strived to make this one of the most valuable books you will read on health and fitness. Whether you're a beginner and want to get everything right from the start, or an experienced health and fitness enthusiast just looking to pick up a few new tricks you may not have ever heard before, I believe "50 Fitness Tips You Wish You Knew" will be one of the most practical and helpful guides to add to your arsenal of fitness education.
