My goal is to show you an alternate way of thinking about fitness and guide you to a new path or back to one that has led to success in the past.
My name is Joe, a husband and father of three that lives in NC. I've spent the last decade on active duty in The U.S. Army and I am forever grateful for that experience because it inspired me to start taking a serious look at holistic wellness beyond lifting heavy objects off the ground. What was I eating? How much alcohol was I drinking? How much was I sleeping? The more questions I asked, the less thrilled I was with the answers.
Spiritual. I believe in defining what makes my life meaningful instead of having someone or something defining it for me. I do my best to respect and appreciate all life.
Physical. We need to move everyday. We also need deliberate recovery. Our body wasn't designed to live on certain foods and drinks.
Emotional. I'm comfortable in expressing and discussing emotions and how they influence my life. I trust my instincts.
Psychological. The mind controls the body. Without proper maintenance, we cannot be well. Daily reflection, sleep, and rest are necessary to be well.
Social. There is family and there are friends. You need both. Having healthy friendships and family relationships are equally important.

Only you know when you are truly operating outside of your comfort zone. When this happens, you need to STOP and go see someone who is one of the many things I am not.
