Theres no crying at Bootcamp! (cool success stories)

What a week it has been! In case you missed my facebook posts or didn’t make it to bootcamp Thursday night, you missed the story of four incredibly hard working clients of mine. Each one has a different backstory of what led them to me or finally got them started but, 4 weeks later they all have JAW DROPPING RESULTS!! Sam, a 42 year old man who has “gone to the gym and worked out” the majority of his adult[…]

Avoid the fads, do what works

Blog post written by a current diet coaching client: SlimFit Diet…its worth it. Upon receiving the products I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m on day four of using Derek Kuryliw’s SlimFit Diet A.M. Metabolizer and P.M. Purifier and I have to say I am quite impressed. The second day of taking the SlimFit Diet products I woke up much earlier than usual with a bit more wakefulness about me and of course I knew the Purifier was working because[…]

Every Bit of Progress Counts

Only a tiny loss this week.  I know some people think that a few inches is quite significant, but it’s not quite what I need to lose per week so I’m a little behind at the moment.  Hopefully if I do a few extra high intensity cardio sessions it might be better next week. This week has been a long one.  Training has been hard work. I am on low carbs, I am pretty tired at the moment, so it[…]

Do You Fear Success?

Guest post by a current client- It seems odd that people would be afraid of success, yet in reality it happens all the time. For me, it’s been a constant struggle. This fitness journey is proving to be more of an internal struggle than a physical one. I am fully capable to physically succeed; I can push my body over its limit. However the emotional journey devours me. Accepting the fact that I truly can be successful in this journey[…]

Choose the Lesser Evil

Life, just like fitness requires balance. Fitness is never ending. There is no final destination of optimal fitness. We do know what the side effects of a lack of fitness are though. Sickness, disease, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disorders and ultimately death. So what are the side effects of fitness? Health, happiness, confidence, strength, endurance, vitality, good looks and ultimately death. ….Whoa, whoa, whoa….did I say death is a side effect of fitness? How morbid! If you haven’t grasped this concept[…]

Suck It Up! Client Story Part 4

Guest post by a current coaching client: Suck it up! This is what I kept telling myself while doing a regular training session in the massive Florida mid-day heat, all courtesy of New Port Richey Bootcamp with Derek Kuryliw leading the way. Honestly though it was an intense training session followed by a wonderfully brutal outdoor jungle gym type workout. Yes, you read correctly… “Wonderfully brutal”. When we are disciplining ourselves to train and eat right I find it is[…]

The Incredible, Edible Egg (the Yolks too!)

In a world full of misinformation about nutrition, somehow most people now mistakenly think that the egg yolk is the worst part of the egg, when in fact, the YOLK IS THE HEALTHIEST PART OF THE EGG!   By throwing out the yolk and only eating egg whites, you’re essentially throwing out the most nutrient dense, antioxidant-rich, vitamin and mineral loaded portion of the egg. The yolks contain so many B-vitamins, trace minerals, vitamin A, folate, choline, lutein, and other[…]

They May Never Understand – Client Story Part 3

Guest post by a client: Picture this. You decide you want to get healthier and challenge yourself. You’ve committed to a specific goal. You train hard and you change your diet to meet the needs of this goal. Then boom it happens. A neighbor asks why you are walking so funny “did you hurt your leg?” Your response, in excitement, “No, I had a wicked training session and I’m sore”. Their response will shock you. Oh my goodness, why do[…]
