We have showers with Malin & Goetz [...]

As it starts to get colder and the sun rises later, it can be tempting to sleep in and skip your routine morning run. Personally, autumn is when I [...]

It’s the middle of August and you might be sick of hearing “bikini body” and “swimsuit season.” If you’re like me, you’ve pretty much decided to enjoy the rest of summer and go sober for September. I may not always eat or drink the right thing, but I’m always exercising which makes a huge difference [...]

Do you need inspiration? An 82 year-old man swam 2.1 miles, biked 114, and ran a marathon to complete the World Championship Ironman race in Kona. You can run a 5K. You can run a 10K. You can do a triathlon. You just need to believe you can. I shot a ton of video while [...]

On Monday, I began the final stage of my shoot preparation.  My “shoot” is the week of September 19th.  I can’t tell you much about it, but people always say, why can’t you just be as you are? For this reason, I’m revealing my motivation vaguely. Eating clean on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday went well. [...]
