New Year, Old Results…Again


As we enter 2020, you may find yourself reflecting on your passed resolutions. Were you able to meet your aspirations? If so, amazing! Give yourself a round of applause.

If not, you’re not alone. Statistically it is said that 80 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail by February. Is that shocking to you? As a personal trainer of over a decade I have known this for a while because I see if first hand every year.

It’s really an unfortunate joke in our industry. We know everyone comes in with the best intentions but more often than not, the goal a client brings to us is not met because they do not stay the course. As trainers we are not given the chance to connect the dots and...


The Art of Losing FAT, Honestly


I have owned CRAVEPT for a little over 10 years now….

When a client steps on a scale they are instantly discouraged if the number they had in their head doesn’t show up. But where does this number come from?

Is their expectation ever realistic?

What I try to educate my clients about are the REAL numbers.

Stepping on a scale isn’t just spitting out your pounds in FAT.

Your total body weight is made up of fluctuating numbers

1) muscle

2) bone

3) organs

4) fluids (including blood)

5) body fat

6) waste inside your digestive tract

7) glycogen (the form of carbohydrate you stock away for fuel).

So, the next time you step on the scale consider that the number you see may vary based on fluct...

The Basics of Core Training, Part One: Stabilization

When it comes to building a solid midsection, there’s a lot of very outdated information floating around out there on the internet. Ranging from a belief that doing endless reps of crunches will magically scorch the fat off your tummy (it won’t), to those who think they don’t ever need any direct abdominal training at all and can instead get all their core work done from heavy Deadlifts and Back Squats.

This three-part series is going to give you a path through the noise and take you from couch potato to six-pack savage.

Intelligent core training starts by building a foundation of rock-solid stability and then upon that unshakeable base; forging a set of jaw dropping abdomina...



Take a Nap

Have you ever come close to falling asleep at the wheel?
I am sure you have fallen asleep on a loved one or started dozing off mid-meeting at work.
Think about that experience or if its every day then your most recent.
Now imagine feeling that tired all day every day. From the moment you awake until you crash in your bed or on your couch because the bed was too far and too much work to reach.
As humans we are doing too much, not sleeping enough, not fueling our bodies correctly and subjecting ourselves to too many lights and not enough nature. We are walking around that tired and we don’t even realize it any longer. In fact it’s normal.
As humans we are becoming more tired a...


Intermittent Fasting

The first time I fasted, I was in my early twenties living in a Hare Krsna temple in Brooklyn, New York.

It was the mid nineties and I had just joined the band “Shelter”, whose posters had hung on the wall of my tiny bedroom back at my folks’ house in London, and whose lyrics and spiritual philosophy they espoused had hugely impacted me.

We fasted in celebration of specific spiritual holidays and it was often a prescribed remedy if someone was getting sick or under the weather.

It was the first time I had been exposed to the idea that going without food was a good thing that could actually have some real health benefits and wasn’t just a punishment meted out to unruly ch...


I’m telling you that you can!

Why being a Nutrition Coach was not a choice!

The last year I have worked towards the solution for the problem I was seeing daily.

People do not know what to eat. Paleo, low carb, high fat, how much protein, what is healthy and what is going to get me muscle or get me thin? I noticed that my clients were constantly being fed misleading information and beocming exceedingly more frustrated with their progress because as hard as they tried they were not reaching their goals.

Too many people in our community and the US are overweight. Not only do we dislike our bodies but we are shaving years off our lives. The harsh reality; people are killing themselves.

A Successful Routine

So I got a chance to sit down and talk to one of our most dedicated members, Dr. Jonathan Ford about his journey here to Crave and about being an HB local. I was excited to share the story he told because I think many people can take from it. I see members come and go. Some achieve more than they set out and some fall short, to be honest.

Recently Jonathan has been on fire in the gym and passed his level 4 Fitranx Test like a true champion and it made me curious….why the change now? Here is his story!
