Hey there fitness family,

Aren’t you glad the election is over?

All of a sudden everyone and their mother on Facebook suddenly turned into a political science major.

Now, I don’t know who you voted for


I will tell you this much: as soon as I heard that the beautiful and fit Eva Langoria was campaigning for Obama, I knew Mitt had no chance.

Eva could have won the election all by herself.

Eva was Obama’s secret weapon.

OK, enough of politics. I’m sick of it.

Let’s move on.


I don’t know about you but I HATE doing cardio by myself.

It’s BORING…….

And you know being a business owner, I feel like I communicate more with the computer these days than I do with humans.

I know that’s SAD ;(

That’s why I always jump at the opportunity to workout or do cardio with friends and clients.

(By the way if you can get yourself out of bed Saturday at 4am and Sunday at 6am reply to this email and come workout with me)

OK, so…..

The other day while I was doing cardio, I got a chance to talk to my good friend and long time client Colleen.

Colleen is a no B.S executive boss lady who is not afraid to tell it like it is.

She is definitely not afraid of confrontation.

(She is not quite as mean as Alejandra the Colombian boss lady)

As we were chatting it up she said “Sam, something happened this weekend that made me think of you”

Of course I couldn’t resist at the opportunity and replied “I’ve been known to have that affect on women ;)”

“No silly” she replied.

“OK what really happened”

She then went on and talked about her recent girls
night out experience.

And how this one “skinny chick” (that’s the PG version of what she said) kept preaching about health and fitness at the bar.

She kept talking about how….

“Wheat grass reverses gray hair”

“Drinking from a plastic bottle will KILL you”

And of course

“How even a lick of Alcohol was detrimental to one’s health”

And after all that talk about health and fitness……

She reached into her purse to light up a cigarette.

And of course….

Colleen, not being shy from confrontation.

Then asked “I thought you were a health buff, what’s up with the cigarettes?”

“These are Easy Spirits, they are organic cigarettes”

I literally almost fell out of the bike when I heard that.

It reminded me of the time I saw a bodybuilder get off the stage and light one up.

So my point for this email is….

Don’t sweat the small stuff.

Don’t get so bogged down in the minute details that you lose sight of the big picture.

Here is the health and fitness “Success Formula”.

Move more, eat less junk, and have someone like us stalk you to make sure you stay consistent ;)

Sam for president and I pick Eva Langoria for my running mate ;)
