“Skin is one of the largest organs in the body. Every month the outer layer of epidermis is completely replaced. Skin reflects aspects of general health, especially diet and lifestyle. It is not simply a thin, waterproof covering for the human body, but it also enables our sense of touch and body temperature regulation.”
My mission as a health and fitness trainer is to inspire transformations from the inside out. As much as I love to sweat it out and workout, my passion is and will always be to challenge my mind, body and spirit as one.
I was lucky enough to spend some time with my friend Brana this summer who suggested I read the Tibetan Book Of Living And Dying. Here are a few transformational notes I took from this great book:
'Eat kale, exercise and meditate everyday'. This is what I tell all my clients after every training workout with me. What I really mean is: 'Eat as healthy as possible before enjoying your favorite treats, stay as active as possible and be nice to yourself and others'.
Today I'm going to share with you my different types of kale salads depending on the day or moment of the week.
The goal with mental, physical and spiritual training is to achieve long-term permanent results- to achieve balance, clarity and freedom today. I believe that one the best ways to transform your energy or spirit is by challenging it everyday during your workouts or daily life.

When it comes to nutrition I'm all about eating as healthy as possible before eating my favorite treats (chocolate treats). That's why I enjoy eating kale salads and every other type of salad out there.
Here's a very simple salad packed with protein, fiber and flavor!
Eating a healthy balanced diet is essential to achieving long term physical and mental transformations. I try to keep my diet as simple and as clear as possible. It allows me to keep track without really keeping track of numbers or content. Here is my food log for the week of September 15-21.
A basic ‘abdominal crunch’ routine is a great way to finish a workout at the gym- you will shape and tighten your midsection while cooling your body down after a tough training session. They are simple, effective and require very little space.
This week I will show you how to incorporate arm and leg movements to your old school crunch exercise to add intensity and variety. All you need is 5-10 minutes and some good music to follow my signature core shaper routine. Let’s get going!
Living in this modern world we are constantly facing many mental and physical challenges. We live in a world that forces us to judge and label people and situations. A world filled with many temptations and distractions. Our minds are constantly running around in circle- running on a treadmill of suffering.
