    What have you accomplished in your life that you're most proud of? -There isn't really a specific moment. For me its the bazillion life "things" that happen like having a house to call home, a decent job that I enjoy and a great friend that is my wife. If you could take 3 months off and do whatever you wanted, what did that time look like? -Wow, hmm, 3 months off? I honestly don't think I could do it. I would go insane...but if i had to...most of the time would be spent at home....or my mom's house. Don't get me wrong, I love a great vacation but anything more than 7-10 days and I would get home sick. How did you feel before ....

    What have you accomplished in your life that you are most proud of? -Raising three amazing kids (young adults) is by far my biggest accomplishment. It’s the hardest job I’ve ever had, but by far my favorite & most rewarding! I am who I am today because of my children! They teach me lessons every day & help me to be a better person. If you took 3 months off & could do whatever you wanted, what would that time look like? -I would spend that time with my friends & family, preferably traveling. Mostly, though - Spending quality time together. No masks & lots of hugs. How did you feel before you found TrAk? -Unmotivated- mentally & physically. How do ....

    What have you accomplished in your life that you're most proud of? Definitely my family. Marrying my beautiful, adventurous and caring wife Sarah and raising our two children, Addison (10) and Isaac (8) to believe in themselves and be kind and caring to their friends and family. If you could take 3 months off and do whatever you wanted, what would that time look like? Soccer is a big passion for my family and a dream of mine has always been to take my family on a European soccer tour, visiting famous stadiums of the historic English Premier League giants, Italian and Spanish super clubs, all while soaking in the local culture. The trip would culminate with a match at Old ....

  • The Fail Proof Way How to Pick Your Virtual Health Coach

    Let’s get this started off with a bang. You’ve reached your breaking point. You are cooped up at home, most likely with kids, and the reality is setting in that you could be there for a while. Anyone can take a couple weeks off of eating like an adult or exercise. But now you are settling in. There is a new reality. You are off your game, feeling lethargic, and frustrated with it all. You are realizing that you can’t give up all movement and nutrition for the next month and beyond or it will have dire consequences. So let's let you in on a little secret...if you see opportunity for yourself instead of a prison ....

    What have you accomplished in your life that you're most proud of? -There are numerous journeys that I am still on life with many proud moments. I know what I hope the end goals should look like and use those proud moments to keep me moving forward and fuel the journey. Let’s get coffee or drinks and talk more in depth about both of our proudest accomplishments. If you could take 3 months off and do whatever you wanted, what would that time look like? -Honestly, I am a home body and would call Akron home base during this 3-month period. So, I would buy a jet and pour a landing strip somewhere within 5 minutes of my house and fly somewhere new in the country ....

  • Protein: What the Big Deal Here!?

    Protein: What the Big Deal Here!?

    This is a question we get all the time at Trak Atheltics: “Protein, how much, how often, and why is it so important!?. I’m sure you’ve wondered at times yourself.

  • The "Over-Scheduled Mom"Syndrome and How to Get Out of It!

    The "Over-Scheduled Mom"Syndrome and How to Get Out of It!

    Have you ever said "yes" to too many events, programs, playdates, work requests and well, anything and everything that came your way? Sometimes the situation works out, and we “guessed” right and can manage, other times we're wrong. Plain wrong and our days are so crazy and overloaded that we can barely even function. This is the classic "Over-Scheduled Mom" syndrome. Do you know it? Maybe you know it too well! I am here to tell you that just because we were wrong in our ability to forecast our energy levels and use of time, doesn’t mean we have to forge ahead in misery, doing a ton of things that are not only unsustainable, but that make our lives ....

  • Out of my comfort-zone and...how did I get here?

    Out of my comfort-zone and...how did I get here?

    Happy Valentine’s Day from a dorm in the frozen tundra of Canada! Okay. I overstated. I am living on a Navy Base (which is just like a dorm) just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia and although it’s not the tundra, it feels like it when the wind blows a balmy 10 degrees Fahrenheit in my face. This past Wednesday I had a moment (or like 20 moments) of my heart beating so fast I thought it was going to jump out of my chest. Yep, I had the straight-up “oh shit” moment. It came when we played our first intersquad game. It was the first three innings I have pitched since 2016. And I wasn’t facing duds either. I was facing some of the best ....

  • The Problem with THAT Coffee Chain

    The Problem with THAT Coffee Chain

    I was in Starbucks over the weekend with my daughter Grace and the line WAS NOT MOVING. You know the deal right? If you are a real coffee drinker like me, you like it black, which means it takes about two second for the barista to get together for you...when the line is moving. And you know why the line wasn't moving right? You may have even been the reason. It's winter. And that means "seasonal drinks". Yep, the ones that take 10min to make and hold up the honest coffee drinkers in line. But...I digress. So I couldn't help but notice how many people had ordered the foofy (yes foofy) drinks. Now there is no problem with this...other than no on realizes just how harmful these are to ....
