Training Update Oct 2011

So the last few weeks my blog quality hasn’t been up to par and I feel bad for that.

However it has been for good reason.  I have been insanely busy opening my new business “Heavyweights Fitness‘ which is a combination of my gym Heavyweights Training Center & my sports nutrition store Heavyweights Supplements.

More on this next week.

So aside from opening a whole new business, setting up the facility I have also been training my clients non stop.  With well over 100 clients I do my absolute best to train & teach them and help them attain their goals.  I am lucky to have great staff and the right people surrounding me.

One thing I have been doing as well is BUSTING MY BUTT training wise.  I decieded the last 6 weeks to really focus in on my own training and give it 100%.  I have some injuries that aren’t fun to deal with, and on top of an insane work load I said FU#K IT, time to focus on my training and see what I got left “In the basement” (Rocky Fans will get this).

Well here is an update of my training.

Today I hit my goal weight of 179 lbs (I am 5 7″), I have a photo shoot tomorrow with my head trainer Gill Whelan (you can check her blog at

So we have both been focused big time on reaching our goals, training our clients, and getting in THE BEST SHAPE possible.

I have hardly done any “BodyBuilding” workouts.  It has all been my Rippedin42 classes, circuits, interval training and some heavy lifting thrown in the mix.

Here are a few videos of me hitting some personal bests.

90 lb neutral grip pull ups

Me hitting a personal best on box jumps

And some glute ham raises for good measure 🙂


Oh lastly I got a nice big tattoo as a reward. It was my goal to be at MY BEST Shape for Oct 29th and to give my business everything I could. I said that “IF” I reached my goal I would reward myself a tattoo I have wanted for a long time.

Goal Accomplished, time for my reward 🙂

Remember, you ONLY LIVE ONCE! 

Make the best of the life you were given, there are NO excuses, and live like there is NO Tomorrow.
