7 Steps To Reach Your Fitness Goals | IMPACT Q&A

Trick or Treat–Happy Halloween! This episode is going to help you stay away from the “treats” and get your mind right on training. I’m excited to answer two great questions today. One question is from @kidbaklava76 who’s looking to jumpstart his training and exercise routine. I share my 7 steps to help get you on the right track whether you are starting out or looking for a major spark in your routine. 

The second question comes from @sparkplugwellness who asks how my travel fitness routine differs from my normal routine and asks for my recommendations. Buckle up. I hope you love the Q&A episodes as much as I enjoy doing them. Keep your questions coming at Until next time, train hard and stay away from the sugar!
