When it comes to posture, I’ve always been amazed by the number of people who tell me that they know they need to have good posture, but don’t quite know how to get it. Or in some cases, think they already have it.
The first time I heard the term “free” used to advertise food was with gum. Trident was the first to go “sugar-free” in the mid 1960’s, but I was first introduced to the concept by “4 out of 5 Dentists” because I had braces and sugar-free gum was supposed to be better for my teeth. Then, it was sugar-free or “diet” soda which removed calories but added new chemicals to our bodies (and who knows what else).
A bully is someone who uses fear and violence to create some form of harm or intimidation in order to satisfy a goal. Bullies are aggressive, unprovoked, and don’t let up. A bully can use a position of greater strength or size to prey upon the small and weak. A bully’s tactics can be used to threaten someone in a menacing way or to exclude someone from a group or circle of friends.
As a “fitness guy,” you might think working out and eating right is easy for me. Maybe you believe I spend my time in between multiple workouts a day eating brussel sprouts and grilled chicken with nothing but a smile on my face because of some enhanced ability to delay gratification.

What is first thing you think of when you imagine a wooden baseball bat? Is it your favorite pro baseball player or the first bat you ever owned? Perhaps a wooden bat helps you remember a moment when you played baseball or a family member who taught you the game. What things does a bat make me think of? Fear, Doubt and Damage to my friend’s shin!
This weekend I was back in my home state of New Jersey to present. The event was a blast and I am always honored to take photos at the end of the show. If you have seen photos of me, you have probably noticed my signature “warrior face” pose.
