The Healthy Addiction
Greetings! We come to you this month with a whole lot of awesomeness to report! For starters, this month The Protocol celebrates its 6-year anniversary. It’s hard to imagine what life was like 6 short years ago; I was working at a gym and scared out of mind to take this leap, but somehow found[…]
Greetings! Once again, it was that time of year. Last weekend, Team Protocol made its annual trip to compete in the 100% RAW Powerlifting American Challenge. This was our third time competing as a team and we were very excited to defend our Master’s National Championship from last year, as well as add to the[…]
Greetings! The world of health, fitness, and wellness is diverse and multi-faceted. We try to stay active, eat right, get plenty of sleep, manage stress, take our vitamins, brush and floss, not drink too much, etc., etc., etc… Often times there are so many things we know we should be doing to maintain our bodies,[…]
Greetings! This month’s post is extra exciting for us… and not just because it’s the first one from our shiny new facility! Earlier this year, Matt and I had the privilege of attending the first Strength Matters Kettlebell Certification offered in the United States. For those of you who don’t know Matt, he has been[…]
Greetings! If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ve gotten to see The Protocol grow and evolve. Although our little place has spent more than its fair share of time in the national spotlight, we came from some very humble beginnings. After working as an independent trainer since 2004, I started “Vail Boot[…]
Greetings! This month’s post is going to be a little different. One of the greatest things about The Protocol is what we like to call our, “Protocol Family.” Community is one of our core values, and is also the most wonderful things about my job. There days when getting up at 3:45am to go to[…]
Greetings! Over the course of my career, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with some extraordinary people: Business owners, CEOs, fellow coaches and trainers, a few professional athletes, folks who could barely get out of a chair, and all points in between. Occasionally, however, I get the opportunity to work with someone who[…]
Greetings, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! As 2015 winds down, I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge some students from our studio who accomplished some rather extraordinary things this year… as well as tell you about some very exciting stuff happening in 2016! Earlier this year, Team Protocol competed at the 100%[…]
Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and many other books in the series, tells a story that his father used to tell him when he was a kid… When I was a child, my dad told us that the Japanese were aware of three powers: the sword, the jewel and the mirror. The[…]
Being in the fitness industry for over a decade, I’ve seen some very sad, yet predictable, patterns: 1. Start crazy diet and/or exercise program that is unsustainable long-term. 2. Grit through said program for defined period of time (usually under 90 days). 3. Attain a moderate amount of success from the program, but burn out[…]
