So we all know by now, sleep is important, right?

When you sleep is when you burn the fat, recover, and ‘regenerate’ yourself.

But what if you’re doing everything right – yet still can’t fall asleep?

It happens to many of us.

34 ways to lose fat

No Comments

Yesterday I turned 34, and in Holland it’s tradition to “trakteer” on your birthday. This basically means, give everyone else gifts.

So I made you a little something I hope you’ll like – a list of 34 WAYS TO LOSE FAT. Let’s get straight to it..

1. Feel the muscle

Don’t just hoist weight. Lower under control and squeeze on the way up.

2. Jump Rope more

It’ll improve your foot speed, conditioning. Plus it’s portable, and you’re cooler when you can jump rope well.

“My boss won’t let me eat at work!”

No Comments

So I have this guy in my Long Beach 5am Elite group. He’s ALL about it, getting on the mealplan and making gains already.

But he does have a minor ‘problem’..

He told me yesterday that his boss won’t let him eat while working.

And in his case, long story short, it means he wouldn’t be able to eat from noon till 7pm.

There’s only ONE way to get motivated

No Comments

If you rely on things other than yourself to get ‘motivated’, then you’ll never get ‘motivated’.

‘Motivational’ movies, pics, friends, speakers – all of them are great. But nothing will motivate you more than 1 word:

-> Results < - The instant you start seeing results on yourself, everything changes. Continue Reading There’s only ONE way to get motivated

4 things most gyms don’t want you to hear

No Comments

The truth will always give you the shortest route to success.

But so many times the truth is hard to swallow. Especially when it comes to getting fit, the truth can be HARSH.

It takes hard work, sacrifice, sweat, tears – and it takes a ‘thick skin’ to hear that from someone.

But the problem is that so many people get lied to every day. By big gyms, supplement companies, tv shows, etc.

So today I want to tell you some cold-hard TRUTHS about getting in shape. These are harsh, but let’s go:


Any time you have a group of people trying to accomplish the same thing, a top 20% will arise that actually see massive results.

No matter how good or bad the program, or how educated or strong the people, the average success rates in anything are 20%.

This is because it’s human nature to be indifferent and lazy. So in order to succeed you have to leave your comfort zone and be massively uncomfortable.

Success always happens in chaos. If you’re in still waters then it simply means you haven’t left the harbor yet.

Everyone goes through adversity – and it’s your reaction to that adversity what shapes you. That’s life.

So take this info and be part of that 20%. You’ll just have to do what most people aren’t doing.. which is work hard, have a thick skin, take responsibility, and never complain.


An everlasting problem is that big gyms, supplement companies, doctors if you don’t know anything about fitness, then

That’s why lies are ‘easier’. “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is still putting on its’ shoes”

Reason I’m saying this is because every day people who DON’T KNOW about weight loss are lied to.

And “A lie told often enough becomes the truth”, so I want to debunk a couple of them right here..

Last night I was in our La Palma location. And as I was walking to my car, I noticed these guys putting flyers on windshields.

Big ones too, like, they were annoying to take off. And when I took mine off, I saw it was an ad from a local ‘big gym’.


he only way to get results is to first get started.

And even though you can ‘fake it till you make it’, I’ve found that
