  • Diet, Exercise & _______? The Essential Component No One Is Talking About

    Diet, Exercise & _______? The Essential Component No One Is Talking About

    You're about to discover a core component to a long healthy life. A component as fundamental as diet and exercise, yet no one in the health and fitness industry seems to be talking about it. As many of you know, I recently returned from an 8 day trip to the mountains of Peru. Along with me on the trip were my wonderful wife and 15 exceptional members of our Southlake gym, ProCore Fitness. People of every age and background came along for our epic adventure, from 20-year-old college students to 60-year-old dentists. And as you might imagine, the trip was incredible. Life-altering is more accurate, which is why I'm writing this to you today. After a lot of flying, we spent 2 ....

    Prefer listening to reading? Check out our podcast on alkaline water here Hey there, I'm glad you're here because if you're like me, you probably love deep diving. There is a plethora of gold in the world of health and fitness, and there's also a bunch of BS. And today, we're going to figure out if Alkaline water is worth its weight in gold or if it's just another trendy health scam.

  • The 3 WORST Workout Routine Mistakes (Part 3 of 3)

    The 3 WORST Workout Routine Mistakes (Part 3 of 3)

    We're in a war, and it's constant. It's a push and pull that never seems to go away. And the problem is... Most of us aren't even aware it's happening. It's the battle between sticking to what works while adopting the "new and improved." You see, the challenge in fitness (or anything else) is that there is a constant tension between "tried and true" and "new and improved." Old School vs. New School... Yin and Yang... These two forces are always in competition for dominance... I like to think of the Old School as an old guy named... Ernie. (That's the oldest sounding name I name think of!) Ernie is safe, he's reliable, ....

  • Gear List For Machu Picchu

    Our next PCF Adventure club is nearly here! As someone who's backed thousands of miles, I can tell you that the right gear is make or break. It is the difference between an incredible trip filled with fond memories and a miserable trip filled with regrets. When you're on the trail you want to be thinking about how amazing the view is, not how miserable you are because you made a poor choice in gear. Trust me, I've made a lot of mistakes. We're now less than a month out and it's time to make sure you've got everything you need. As an experienced backpacker, I've been getting a ton of questions on what gear I use. In the video I've embedded I'll go through every piece of gear in more ....

    The 3 WORST Workout Routine Mistakes (Part 2 - Recovery)

    You're back! Welcome welcome... If you're just starting to read this series, you can go back and read part 1 later . It's not a prerequisite for this section of the 3 part series. So, back to it. We're talking about the 3 WORST Workout Routine Mistakes that are killing your results. Can I tell you a quick story? When I was in Marine Corps Bootcamp my Drill Instructors nicknamed me... Fallopian Tubes... I remember it like it was yesterday. It was our first strength test, and part of the USMC strength test is pull-ups, which is not my strong suit. I stepped up to the pull up bar with where the DI was staring at me like he hated every inch of ....

    The 3 WORST Workout Routine Mistakes (Part 1 of 3)

    How many times have you started a new workout routine? You get excited, commit to the process, and weeks or months later, you find yourself utterly frustrated with your results (or lack thereof)? It takes a lot of time to get yourself psyched up for a new routine. It takes a lot of energy to get started. And often costs a fair amount of money to get a routine, whether from a trainer or an app, or something else. To invest all that time, money, and energy and be left with little to nothing to show for it is highly discouraging. What if I told you, assuming you have a good plan, that virtually all fitness struggles come down to 3 significant mistakes that people make? Well... ....

    Intermittent Fasting: What does the research reveal?

    "I went into this hoping to demonstrate that this thing I've been doing for years works, but as soon as I saw the data, I stopped," said UCSF researcher Dr. Ethan Weiss. For 7 years now, Dr. Weiss has been experimenting with Intermittent Fasting. Eventually, he decided to run a randomized clinical trial to get some evidence. And the result of that study is what you'll learn about in this blog... Proponents of intermittent fasting defend it like a mamma bear defends her cubs after a long winter fasting in a cave... Coincidence? At least 4 or 5 times a week, someone asks me... "So, what do you think about Intermittent Fasting?" Or "Does Intermittent Fasting really work?" ....
