Happy 4th of July Weekend to those teamRIPPEDers in the good ol’ USA! Tomorrow many of you will get a chance to celebrate the United States adopting the Declaration of Indepence and declaring our independence from Great Britain. Or more likely than not, you will be celebrating some...

From the VAULT: Remme R...

Remme is a chef, a dad, and a guy who had his wake up call when his daughter called him FAT!  He decided to do something about it, set the right example for his kids, and honor the One who created him by taking care of the body he’s been given.  Check out this video he put...

Midweek Motivation

Welcome to JULY! I can’t believe that we are done with June already? Isn’t time such an amazing constant? We all have 24 hours in a day. That is ours to invest. Are you going to use 30-60 minutes of it to make a impact on the rest of your life? Get pumped up! YOU can do this!...

Let Fiber Blast Your Fa...

Fiber! It’s not one of the macro-nutrients (protein, carbohydrate, or fat) but it’s still a nutrient that can be very useful to track. Don’t get worried, tracking fiber is pretty easy to do with MyFitnessPal (MFP) and will show you how. Dietary Fiber Dietary fiber...

Our Thoughts and Action...

It’s amazing to me to see how much our thoughts impact our actions. What you think and believe about yourself will have a HUGE impact on what you do. When we believe that we can achieve something we will work so much harder than if we are constantly telling ourselves that we will...

Weekend Update

This was a pretty cool poll from this week! I have often wondered how we interact. I know it’s really easy to a “fly on the wall” with me and teamRIPPED. But I want to challenge, DON’T! Get plugged in and use me for help. Y’all are never an inconvenience. I...

The Perfection Crew: Pa...

Did you like the Perfection Crew posts from last 3 weeks now? Just to recap: It was a challenge I put out to all of teamRIPPED to make a PERFECT 90 days of nutrition and workouts. We started out with well over 100 people (someone from the PC can correct me, was it over 150?) but we ended...

Workout Recovery

We talk a lot about getting the most out of our work outs and how to really Dig Deep and Bring it — but did you know that working out is actually NOT when our muscles grow and get stronger?  Working out breaks them down.  The intense workouts put stress on our muscles, which cause...

Finding Your Maintenanc...

When you first start out on your fitness journey, often times one of your goals is to CHANGE your body weight.  Either you want to eat less calories than you burn in order to lose weight, or you want to eat more calories than you burn to gain mass.  Eventually, though, you will hit your...

Feel the Passion

Successful people are passionate people! They are passionate about what they do, and that passion enables them to accomplish things that the rest simply don’t. In business, it’s the person who has a dream and does anything and everything to make that dream into reality. In...

More Meal Prep for Fat ...

How about now? Do you NOW meal prep? I first ran a post like this a couple weeks ago and the response was great! If you are going for fat loss, it makes a lot of sense to meal prep and do a full on meal prep day. It makes it so easy to make lunches you can take on the go and hit your...

Attention!  I haven’t given you a good dose of “SUCK IT UP!!!” in a while. So I need to bump this post to the top of the feed again. You know I love you, but shooting warm fuzzies at you while you make excuses for poor behavior does you no good.  You need to hear the...

Gas Station and Conveni...

Gas station and convenience store snacks were my downfall before finding P90X! It was so easy to stop off on the way to work or when I would drive home and get a soda and some candy. This was always on top of the huge meals I was eating too! If you have had the same experience, you might...

Being Intentional

I’ve had the awesome opportunity to get personally trained by John Maxwell! Some of that training is going on right now for a group we call the Finish Line Leaders. We get together for monthly calls and have many small groups who “meet” online in video calls to digest...
