Recommended Reading: March ’16

When I started as an entry-level personal trainer, my only goal was to help as much people as I can and continually improve as a coach.  I had no intentions of stepping on anyone’s toes and was never remotely interested in crowning myself as “top trainer”.

Fast forward almost three years later.

The first three months of 2016 have been nothing short of spectacular.  I’m running my own fitness business, working on my own terms, and networking with some of the top minds of the fitness industry. #Winning

On top of that, my clients are kicking ass. I couldn’t have asked for a better start.


With that being said, there are a few things I’m looking forward to in the upcoming months:

1) Captain America: Civil War

I’m going crazy just thinking about it. I’m literally going to bring my Captain America shield with me.

2) I’m going to be an uncle!

He’s going to be deadlifting and squatting.

3) Vacation in the Philippines

It’s been almost 10 years since I’ve stepped foot in the Philippines, and I’m pretty stoked about it.



On that note, here are some great reads I recommend for the month of March.
