My Review of the book "Live Life Aggressively! What Self Help Gurus Should Be Telling You"

Not very often do I make the time to read a book that doesn't have 100% to do with training or nutrition.  This book was one of the few I knew had an important message!   







Here are my thoughts!


This book is a true GEM! I highly suggest anyone who wants to actually do something with their lives. If you are sick of living a mediocre life, strive to be successful and happy, but live in fear to do something about it, this book will help with your paralyzing excuses. 

Mike has a special gift, in being able to make you take a serious step back and look at your own life. Even if it makes you upset about some of the choices you have made or habits you have picked up along the way. This book is not a cheese ball, feel good, cozy and warm inside self-help book. You may laugh and you may cry, but there is nothing I found written in this book that will waste your time. He shows you how to overcome failures and to strive to be your best, by also sharing his own experiences and failures. Mike pours his heart out and shares things in his life that he is not proud of. You really get to know him on a personal level and may relate to many of the obstacles he has had to overcome to become successful. Unlike other self help books, Mike will be brutally honest and cut right to the chase. He will tell you what you don't want to hear but need to hear! Stop being a follower and start becoming a leader. Mike's book may just be the wake up call you finally needed to go out and do something you have always dreamed of doing. 

As a fitness professional myself, I have met many people in the industry. To tell you the truth, I can only call a select few my real friend, and glad to say Mike is one of them. Since meeting Mike at the RKC in 2005 he has also been a major role model to me for my own success. Mike did not ask me to write this review. However, I was so impressed with this book, I wanted to take the time so others who want to live life to the fullest can take away what I was able to grasp from it. What makes Mike different from others is that he actually cares and enjoys helping people. We all know many people in the fitness industry or any industry in that matter, just want to make a quick buck! That is not what drives Mike. Otherwise the profits of this book wouldn't all be going to a great charity. He admits that it's nice to be comfortable and have a steady flow of income, which anyone would be crazy not to want. The real success and reward in life for him is dramatically changing peoples lives. He has achieved this for himself, with thousands of people, and now has shared his secrets and success in this very book. This book is the best tough love you can get. Now stop making excuses, get ready for a wild adventure, and start to "Live Life Aggressively"!

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me.

WELCOME!

First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today!

Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core again.  I d…

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.  


Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings, developing the butt on the right would still be unlikely.  Through h…

Why Squat? Squats are one of the most beneficial exercises to practice. I could sit here and tell you how squatting makes you stronger, more conditioned, firms your legs and butt, improves digestion, increases energy and mood, but I'm sure you know the endless amount of benefits. A few people who've participated in the past squat challenges chose to share their experiences which I've shared below.
