In the midst of the holiday season and as we approach a new year full of new possibilities, I am going to encourage you to break up with the idea of being perfect. Break up with the idea that you’ll eat perfectly at every party over the next week. Throw out the new years resolution to give up all junk food and eat better. Don’t start the holiday’s telling yourself you won’t eat a single barbecue coated fried chicken wing or even a piece of cake on New Years. Didn’t see that o
We all think of or set awesome goals/resolutions for the New Year. 92% of us fail to achieve them. Let's get rid of that mistake.

Every week, we, as trainers, hear the same excuse. “I didn’t lose weight because I keep eating all my kids snacks/food” or “we ate out every night last week.” Why is this even a thing? Why do our kids need special snac
This month at Coachman we’ve began implementing “Gain One, Lose One”. Meaning, pick one good habit you want to work on gaining over the course of the month and pick one back habit you want to lose. So, in the spirit of this, I’ve decided to start offering nutritional tips that have become habits of mine over the past few years. Yes, years.

At close to 70 years of age, my parents purchased an upstairs condo in Florida. I am thrilled; not just because I now have a free place to stay in Florida, but because if my parents continue to go up and down stairs regularly, they will continue to be able to do so as they get older.
