Hope, Motivation and Belief for your tough days


Your health journey will have its high points and low points. I know this all too well going from an athlete in incredible shape to gaining sixty pounds within six months when I stopped competing. Then I was sucked into the hype of low calorie and carbohydrate dieting, taking my body fat down to four percent, living as a fitness model, looking great, and feeling horrible. I eventually found a better way to eat, using food to create blood sugar balance by eating in 3s and reprograming my body into a fat burning and muscle building machine. My next life evolution was getting married to my amazing wife, Abbi and together building our company Venice Nutrition, both of us learning the delicate balance of work, marriage and our health. Eleven years ago, I became a father, and was thrown into total food and fitness chaos until I realized I needed to get smarter with my food and fitness and adapt to my new lifestyle as a dad. Now we have a new baby which brings us additional chaos and more importantly the joy multiple kids bring.

My point is that we each have an unique life journey and your health is part of that journey every step of the way. Each week I share tips, strategies and education with you to help you continually evolve your health with your life, so you can truly be your best. But part of your health journey is finding the doses of Hope, Motivation and Belief for those tough days and challenging moments of life that we all have. These are the stories and inspirational messages that empower you to push through and once again see the possibility of achieving your goals.

That’s my goal with this blog, to share with you some of my favorite quotes and transformation videos and provide a place you can always find online when it’s time to turn a low health point back into a high point.

Here are four of my favorite motivating health quotes I’ve shared through the years and a link to all of my quotes if you’re looking for an even greater dose of inspiration:
