This week I highlight the main differences in aesthetic training versus performance training, as well as the pros and cons each way so you know which direction best suits your goals.

I touch on everything from the contrast in training styles to the nutritional differences in fueling for aesthetic purposes versus performance improvements.

As a bonus, I also explain how it’s possible to have the best of both worlds and how to create a program that allows you look good and move better.

S2E3: Leaders LEAD w/Jimmy Carter (@Ingrained2Train)

Continuing the Interview Series, this week I had a chance to chat with former athlete turned leadership coach Jimmy Carter (@Ingrained2Train)

I’ve personally watched Jimmy ascend over the years and it was great to have the opportunity to hear his story.

Jimmy talks about his upbringing in Southside Chicago, how he discovered fitness as a career and was able to train high level athletes, many of which currently play in the NFL, and why he’s made the transition from fitness to leadership coaching.

We also got really in depth about masc...

S1E49: Don't feel BAD for wanting to look GOOD

Unpopular opinion (apparently):

Having a fitness goal around how your body looks is totally fine.

Once upon a time people did literally anything to achieve the body they wanted, to the point of harming themselves physically and psychologically, and this was the norm.

In response to this, the fitness industry shifted its focus as a whole from aesthetic to holistic, making overall health the priority.

This is a GREAT thing.

But somewhere along the way, the narrative transformed. It went from promoting health and wellness to shaming people for...

It really boils down to what is more important to YOU
The number on the scale or how you look and feel

Now this opens up an interesting conversation that I think is so important in our fitness journey

Because when we don't see the scale moving
And even when we don't see the progress in the mirror

We start doing things in the name of weight loss that actually hinder...
