FINALLY! I'm back!

 The return has been long overdue. I thought my blog was deleted and honestly forgot how to log back on here for a while. Not to mention work happens! I stepped out of the personal training realm and back into 9 to 5 world. Life has been good, but I do have a slight void. 

I miss training other folks and training in general. I still workout but my consistency has not been there. 

I've been fighting to drop my last 20lbs and it has been an up and down game. So my waiver has been between 214 and 230. Today is the day I am choosing to call my RESET! Yes, I have said that many times before but I need to get back to the cardio. 

So here we are. Back on the grind. Cardio sucks but it is necessary. Lifting weights is fun but for me, it doesn't keep the weight off. In my old age, sprinting hurts and running for time hurts even worse.

Variety is the plain. Jumping Rope, spinbike, boxing, etc...If I can stay consistent results shall come. 

So here we are...11.8.2020.  I'll do a weight check in tomorrow (I think).

GOAL is to be at or under 205 by the end of December.

First post of 2018!!!!

Hello again! It's been a super long time since I've been on here. If you are still checking in or if you are new to the site, Welcome or welcome back! I've been working a contract in my other line of work since about November of last year so that's why I have been awol. I'm going to do my best to start cranking out videos, and checking in a lil more regularly again. Trust me, I miss training you guys and gals immensely! I was about a week away from restarting the group class at Walnut Square however after talking it over with my wife, I decided it was best I table that idea for the moment. We are both working a bunch of hours right now so that time block was one of the few times where we could spend family time together. It was a hard decision as I am truly passionate about training people and giving back however I believe it was the right decision as I have two young boys who can use their own bit of training as well. That said, I'm going to try to give back in another way. As far as advice is concerned, I'm always an email, facebook messenger or instagram message away. In the meantime, I will be grinding on the low trying to get my "in shape" body back as well. Living on the road is fun, but the draw of fast food, and rich restaurant food is sometimes hard to resist. Thus eating good, ain't always good for the body :o) Again, thanks for coming through! Don't be scared to say hello! -Mark

Summer too hot? Try the cooling towel.

Here in New Orleans, the summers get hot and working out or cutting grass can be an intense sweat session. Luckily, with this instacool towel you can atleast keep your cool while being in the heat.

It did come with a caribiner to attach to your keychain, pants loop or whatever else you may want to clamp it unto.  Currently, it is retailing for $9.95 on amazon!

Product Review: Quick Dry Men's Compression Tights (US Size)

I have been needing a new pair of compression running tights for a while now. However, I am also on the cheap side (well I call it economic side). That said, when I got a chance to review these I was all for it.

Let's start with price: These are selling for $21.99 on amazon. I believe that is a fair price for them, if you have ever researched compression tights then you know they can range from $10-$100 dollars depending on the quality, name brand etc... While, I won't say these are the best compression shorts ever I do believe $21.99 is a good price for them.

Comfort: These are definitely comfortable and fit well. I like them, really nothing bad to say about them at this point. The Parateck men's compression shorts are made from 82% nylon and 18% spandex. The compression level is 18-25mmHG and they provide support and reduce the muscle fatigue and soreness of muscles. 

They can be found here Parateck compression shorts    if anyone is interested in getting a pair. 

I didn't want to take a picture in them as I did not want to expose myself but they fit like the ones in the amazon ad.  

But to the seriousness, I received this product for free or at a reduced rate in return for this review. 
It is honest and my opinion of the mentioned above product.

1st trackmeet of the year!

I've been saying it over and over and I feel like I'm making excuses but I'm just so disappointed that my season opener was a skewed event. Anyone that knows anything about track knows that you want to get atleast a 30minute warmup in to make sure your body is primed to run as fast as possible. Truth be told, an hour warm up is more like normal for most people. But here I am, learning that the event schedule had been changed on the fly and the 100m is being contested pretty much ASAP. Due to time constraints this was pretty much the main race I wanted to run, yeah I was contemplating running the 400 also but honestly, NOBODY wants to run the 400 on purpose, especially if you haven't really been training for it.  So for those 10 minutes I waivered between not running and running because hell, this was the reason why I came here right!

In my younger years, I'm sure I could hop out of the car and run 11 seconds with no problem. However, in these days I have some Achilles issues that require me to warm them up and hell, it just takes me an extra second to get going these days. Ah well, I went against my better judgement and ran anything. Not my best effort. But, I did finish healthy. No injuries and happy to get a competitive run under my belt. More to come! 12.33.
