I was recently in the Netherlands at my good friend Jason Van Oijen’s gym Sky Health.

When I first met him he was a professional model in New York City and competing in professional Muay Thai (Thai Kick Boxing) tournaments.  He was the New York State cruiser weight champion (click here to see his video).

I would joke with him about how he was able to keep his job modeling while trying to protect his face from the barrage of strikes that would come at him during a fight.  Just goes to show he was the real deal and usually wasn’t the one on the receiving end of the strikes (Here is another video of Jason training).

Now Jason is focused fully on functional fitness for himself and helping his clients get the results they are looking for.  In the video Jason gives us some pointers on his training philosophies and some pointers we can all use to keep on improving.

Jason’s tips:

Start with the basics.

Get a program or make your own program.  You can get one for free online, download an app or pay for one from a trainer.  Make a program to hit your goal and keeps you motivated.

Focus on compound movements.  Compound movements use more than one joint and large muscle groups.  Examples are squats, deadlifts, bench press, pull ups.

Listen to your body.

Get your body used to training.  Develop the habit.

Have a direction/vision of what you want.  What are you training for?

Keep on pushing to the next level so you do not stagnate.

Self educate yourself on proper form, reps, techniques etc.  Just like in life you need to keep learning.

Focus on mobility training to increase the range of motion in your joints and the surrounding muscles.

Einstein said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”  

 

Warren Buffett said, “Complexity is the enemy of execution.”  

 

These are principles that apply to any area of your life.  Your business, finances and in this case your body.

 

We all know the basics behind how to get the healthy fit body we all desire and deserve.  Yet why do so few people get to be a living example of the amazing potential the body has?  

 

For most people it is because they are so overwhelmed by the task they don’t even start.  Their desire to do it perfectly triggers them to make the process more complex than it needs to be.  

 

I had the privilege of speaking with Mimi Kuster on the fundamentals of fitness and health and she echoed the same sentiments as Einstein and Warren.  

 

Keep it simple and don’t over complicate it.  We have enough complication going on in life as it is.  Why not keep it as simple as possible in this super important area of our life so we can have the energy, strength, vitality and good looks we deserve.  

 

Enjoy!

 

 

We are blessed to be alive during the most abundant time in human history.  

 

There is more food, money and resources available on the planet for each person than ever.  The reason this is all possible is because of TECHNOLOGY!

 

Hate it or love it technology is only going to become more prevalent in all of our lives.  In fact it’s been around since the great apes. What technology did they use? They used sticks to fish ants out of their antholes in the ground.  

 

The question is are you going to keep up with the increasing rate of technological change so you can capitalize on the abundance of opportunities that are coming.

 

It doesn’t matter that you missed the first wave of the internet, the beginning of google ads or YouTube or when Bitcoin was only $1.  Don’t let your regret for missed opportunities stop you from anticipating new ones that lay right around the corner.

 

Richard Branson said, “Opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.”

 

The technology revolution is only in it’s beginning stages and you still have time to catch the wave….or should I say tsunami that is inevitably going to transform the world even more than it already has.  

 

The gap between haves and have nots is not going to be about money like it has been throughout history.  The gap is going to come down to whether or not you know how to navigate the new world that awaits us. The way to navigate it is by knowing how the world works and being able to contribute on a high level because the jobs that don’t require much critical thinking are being outsourced to things that perform way better than any human can…..ROBOTS.  

 

I’ve never been the most technologically savvy person.  In fact I despised technology up until a few years ago when I realized how important it is in our lives and all the amazing things I can do with it to benefit my life and others.

 

One of the people I learn from about technology is Sam Bhatti.  He is self-taught and is one of the most all around adept people I know with technology.  I had the chance to sit down with him in London where he shared with me some of his technological tools and strategies to save time and be better.  

 

I hope you enjoy watching this episode as much as I did creating it.

This is part two of my talk with actor Walter Nudo.  We go deeper into mindset/health with the rituals Walter goes through to start his day off right.

STEP 1:

Enjoy the first few moments of waking up.  Don’t let your mind start racing and think about all the problems and things on your to do list for the day.

STEP 2:

Don’t check your phone.  Your phone should be on airplane mode all night until after you complete your morning routine.

STEP 3:

Meditate.  Use your mind.  Don’t let your mind use you.  Meditation helps you train your brain so you are living purposefully vs reacting to life.

STEP 4:

Drink hot water with lemon (filter out pulp of lemon if your stomach is sensitive).  Lemon alkalizes the blood.

STEP 5:

Go for a 20 minute walk.  Walking accelerates your metabolism.

STEP 6:

Start breathing to fuel your cells.  Breathing is everything.  If you stop breathing, you stop your life.

As you are walking do  four deep diaphragmatic breaths inhale and four exhale.

STEP 7:

Take a cold shower a la Wim Hof.

STEP 8:

Move your body to circulate your blood.  Circulation is everything.  You want flexibility, circulation and to warm up your muscles.  Try Sun Salute Yoga.

BONUS:

Colon Therapy.  Once per quarter (every 3 months) to cleanse and detoxify your colon and the rest of your body.

Your colon is a muscle and it needs to be worked out.  All disease starts in the gut so you want to create a healthy environment and cleanse out the toxins.

I went to Tony Robbins’ Life and Wealth Mastery event recently in Noordwijk, Netherlands.

One of my favorite things about going to events is meeting like-minded people who are a living example of health and well-being.

I met Walter Nudo when we jumped off 50 foot poles

We started talking and hit it off.

I learned a lot from him about health but even more I learned about the deeper principles behind why you’d do any of it to begin with.

He brings a more purposeful and mindful meaning to health and well-being.

Enjoy!

*note: the episode is cut short at the end due to technical difficulties.  Part 2 will be out soon!

 

Every morning when Steve Jobs woke up he looked in the mirror and asked himself, “If today were the last day of my life would I want to do what I’m about to do today?”  It created an empowering sense of urgency to use his time wisely because he reminded himself not to take a moment of life for granted.

On my recent trip to Rome I visited the Colosseum where countless battles were watched as entertainment.  Gladiators and fierce wild animals from all over the world were matched up against one another in battles to the death.  This once magnificent arena is also falling apart as time passes.  It reminded me of how precious life is and how important it is to truly live life to the fullest each day.

The necklace I wear is a reminder to live life now and not wait.  What is it you truly want to do in your heart?

Do you want to travel to another country?  All over the world?

Do you want to start your own business?

Do you want to learn to play the guitar?

Do you want to be a photographer?

There is a way to make your dreams a reality and the best time to start is now.

If you’re working hard to create a result in your life but struggle to make it happen.  There’s one reason that’s holding you back.

Your beliefs.

We have an internal blueprint for every area of our life that is the cause for what we have currently produced in life.

Everything you have created so far in life in your health, intimate relationship, finances and business are a byproduct of your belief systems.

The crazy part is most people are totally oblivious about the beliefs that are determining every action and decision they make.  They are walking around unconscious and at the whim of their past conditioning and circumstances life throws at them.

Here’s a short clip from a talk I did with the Gracie Brazilian jiu jitsu team:

Nothing with change until you change.

In order to do something you haven’t done you have to be someone you haven’t been!

Here are a few simple steps to shift a disempowering belief:

1.) Create awareness.  What’s an area of life you are struggling with?  What is a situation you find yourself not being your best?  There is a limiting belief there.  Write down whatever comes up.

2.)  Question the limiting belief.  Is it true?

Example:  It’s bad to make a lot of money

Is it true?  Are there people who do great work in the world who make billions of dollars?
Yes there are lots of people who do and impact the world.  They are a force for good and use their money as a tool to create empowering change.

3.) Create a new empowering belief.

Example:  Money is a powerful tool to make the world a better place and create positive change.

4.)  Look for reference experiences to support that new belief.

Were there times you’ve seen money used in a good way by someone who had a lot of it?

Have you ever used your money to help others?

Find someone living by the empowering belief and be around them as the experience will challenge your current limiting belief system.

5.)  Condition it.

Write the new belief and put it on your wall.

Repeat it out loud and engage your body and voice to drive it deep in your nervous system so you never forget.
