Lift For Life

These days I am more aware of father time and mother nature than I ever was as a youth. As a youth you could storm out on your own path like the unruly teenager you were. What do they know? But just as you find yourself saying the same things to your kids, that your […]

Older But Stronger

Older But Stronger One Goal Ends Another Begins Last October I had one of those nights devoid of even a few minutes sleep. A very productive night I may add whereupon I planned out a goal of stepping on stage once again. At first – the goal was to do the ProAm the following year, […]

Three Show Prep Program

After the huge success of the natural progression program that is for sale on this site I thought I would give those interested a look at the follow on to that program as I am nearing my shows this year. The natural progression program really brought my mind and body back to something like the […]

Recipes And Prep

Your side of the line I can here you now—yep well that’s all well and good if you have nothing to do all day but look after myself and eat my meals on time. Well I am sorry but you are wrong –most of my clients are women with kid’s, homes and jobs –just like […]

Visualise To Achieve
