  • Road to 40: Post 4

    So it’s been quite a ride since my hip surgery in early 2019. 3 major California fire disasters and a pandemic and a half later, I’m trekking to 40. I got laid off in 2020 from 24 hour fitness for being unproductive. Hard to be productive when you are out on medical leave but let's be honest, it was a blessing in disguise because I started my own fitness company. I’m in year two and feel like year ten is not that far away. I’m an aspiring “Best Dad Ever” candidate. I feel like I can do it. Everyone keeps warning me about the teen years but I say bring it on. I got this! My hip still bothers me quite a bit but I’m actively working to live pain ....

  • A Day in the Life 2: PRICEY the Unicorn

    Monday July 11th 2022 Because things aren’t normally hectic enough. This weekend we had a bed bug scare in my kid’s room. We went to the County Fair about a week ago and “won” my kid a $60 unicorn which I rightfully named PRICEY. Future reference, find a way to distract the kid when the guy at the booth pulls you aside and says, “You sure bro?” Anyways, the kid was happy, and it ended up on the bed w/ 900 other stuffed animals. So a couple days later, the kid has bite marks all over her body. Damnit! Didn’t even think about putting the damn thing in the washer! That’s dumb. The unicorn is traveling all over the place and sitting in a ....

  • Road to 40: Post 3

    Recovery to now: Moving past the 10 weeks of relief from the cortisone shot, my surgeon was convinced that there was a strong reason to scope my hip and figure out what was damaged. It’s deep in the winter at this point, coming up on the end of the year. I’ve been away from work since July, still not really able to do much, putting on weight and not feeling great about the inactivity. I had tried lifting a few times and even moderate stuff, seated, caused me pain. So I was just waiting for an official date for the surgery. And by mid December, I had a date. I’d be bringing in the first week of the New Year w/ a newly repaired hip! January 6th, 2019 ....

  • A Day in the Life 1: Work, The Funeral & The Dermatology Appt

    Tuesday June 15th, 2022 Keeping to the commitment of writing this blog, we’re talking about the good & the bad to show how trying to be fit and healthy goes living a normal life. So, anyways, another day in the grind. Gotta be honest I fell asleep downstairs in our chair because I was so tired from a full day at work and I crushed a leg workout earlier that afternoon. When I say crushed, I mean it may have crushed me because I was wobbly after it was finished. That being said, it didn’t go well. I woke up at 1am, transferred to the couch, and half slept until my alarm went off at 5:30am. I dragged myself upstairs and jumped in the shower. Normally I would have done ....

  • Road to 40: Post 2

    And so in November of 2018 I met with the surgeon about possibilities of how to go about it. We exhausted them all and by Jan 2019, 3 months into this new father thing, I was in surgery for what was supposed to be a labrum tear and came out with my hip bone shaved, my hip flexor split in half, and lots of painful inflammation. I’ve had surgery four times in my life. First one was the wisdom extractions. All 4 at once; not fun but normal for a lot of people. Second, was to repair a inguinal hernia I got while working at Orchard Hardware and Supply when I was 18. The third was when I had an emergency appendectomy because my appendix almost exploded; fun stuff. So ....

  • Road to 40

    It’s June of 2022 and I’m feeling pretty good about my 39th year on this floating Billiard ball we call earth. I can honestly say that last year was my most successful professional year thus far; I feel like I’m “Dading” pretty solidly but have room for improvements, and that this will be a good year to be a better partner to my wonderful girlfriend and focus more on us. The 39th Annual Celebration of Miguel just passed and I gotta say, I enjoyed it. I don’t feel old, I’m comfortable with my grays, and I feel like I’m contributing to my multiple tribes. I can look myself in the mirror and own my success, admit to the areas of my life that ....

  • FAQ

    Do I need to get in shape before I start a fitness program with my trainer? Absolutely NOT! It’s important for your trainer to assess where you are so that they can develop the right plan for you. A fitness plan should meet you where you are and become more challenging as you continue to get in better shape. The sooner you start with your trainer, the better off you’ll be. Do I have to give up all my favorite foods in order to get into better shape? NO WAY! Many people fail because they cut out everything they enjoy and plan to eat the same thing until they reach their goal. While this may work short-term, it will set you up for failure long term. The best way to ....
