Vonnie Wescott today, after losing 30 lbs with KnuckleUp!

Vonnie in July 2008, before joining the gym, at 175lbs.

One of the most rewarding experiences a gym can ask for is to be part of its members’ fitness and wellness success. It is humbling to know that we performed a small part in reaching their fitness goals, and we’re always proud of assisting tons of students in the best way that we can.
However, there’s only so much KnuckleUp can do; every student that challenges themselves, that battles against a comfy couch or a double bacon cheeseburger, and shows up for class irregardless, is a major winner.
Today, we’re celebrating Vonnie Wescott’s win over her personal battles against a sedentary desk job lifestyle.
This is what Vonnie told me about her experience with KnuckleUp:
In college I was about 135/140, and once I got my desk job I got up to 175! I knew I needed […]

Time to talk about your body's potent fat burning hormone: HGH. I wanted to let you guys know up front that this post isn't a grand scheme to sell some sort of HGH supplement. There are some pills and supplements that can make a little difference, but this article will be dedicated to increasing your Human Growth Hormone (HGH) with just a solid diet and exercise routine. I've talked in passing about HGH in the past, but felt the need for a post that goes a bit more in depth.

[The science behind HGH is as simple or as complex as you want to make it. I will touch on how HGH works in your body, but mainly focus on actions you can take to increase this natural fat burning hormone in your body. Oh yeah, this picture is suppose to be a mad scientist.]
The Basics: What is HGH (Human Growth […]

He spent 10 days in my camp near Philadelphia to start a strength and conditioning program 2 months ago. He showed great technique, speed and conditioning to win an unanimous decision in 12 rounds.

This question kept me up late last night:
Why don’t you make shopping lists for people instead of meal plans? let people make what they want, when they want it. when the food is out, you’re done eating until the next shopping list is published.

Really, its a very good idea.
A predetermined weekly shopping list that contains a set number of calories, fruits and vegetables provides an incredible amount of flexibility while at the same time helping people ‘target’ a certain calorie intake.
Basically, take a weekly calorie goal, and eat it through out the week in any manner you like. Once meal per day, three meals per day, 32 meals per day….what ever suits you best. BUT, when the food runs out..the food runs out.
This would be a great way to learn what a certain calorie intake ‘feels’ like.
The simplicity and logic makes this an intriguiging idea.
I checked with John Barban and […]

Fat Loss Meal Plans

NEWS FLASH: Over the next couple days your email in-box is going to be FLOODED by people promoting Meal Plans.
My guess is your going to get a MINIMUM of 5 emails over the next week.
You’re going to here all kinds of stories of why you absolutely MUST get a meal plan.
And, surprisingly (under the correct circumstances) even I am going to be one of those people!
Here’s the deal:
I’m not just blindly promoting some random product – I am promoting it for a specific purpose ANDfor a specific reason.
That reason is I lost a HUGE debate with Eat Stop Eat science editor John Barban.
This debate led to John creating meal plans.
It was about 2 months ago, we were sitting in Williams Coffee Pub in Burlington Ontario, I was having a cappuccino and John was having a black coffee (he was fasting).
Out of the blue, John drops this line on me
John: “You […]
