How To Use a Simple 10 Minute Warm Up To Supercharge Your Physique, Increase Performance and Bulletproof Your Body From Injury.

Something I’ve learned from the past 2 decades of working out and 17 years of training clients:

Your warm up is as important as your actual workout.

Most people think that “warming up” consists of jumping on the treadmill for 5 minutes, getting a sweat on and doing a couple of sets before going HAM in the gym.

Misguided warm ups like this not…

So you’re putting yourself in isolation for the next little bit and can’t hit the gym. What’s a high achiever like yourself supposed to do?

Don’t worry. I’ve got you covered.

Before becoming the body transformation coach to high achieving entrepreneurs I owned a Metabolic Conditioning gym for 11 years.

I’ve put togethers hundreds of these types of workout for my clients so I’ve got a bit of history around this. I’d like to do my part in the tough times we’re facing.

I’ve labeled this the “Coronavirus Workout” because this is a workout that you can do strictly from…

I was having a conversation with one of my clients the other day and we struck on something I needed to share with you.

As we went through our mobility drills and foam rolling drills I remember telling him something I tell every one of my clients:

“The older you get the more time you gotta put into your warm up” — Dan “Yes I just quoted myself” Go

It’s not an exact science but here’s something I came up with that seems to right true with age and performance…

Once you hit the age of 30 you gotta put…

I just came back from an event where one of the women sought me out to tell me about her new detox diet.

Seriously … why does this this always happens to me 🤦

When I’m around others and they’re eating a cake or something of the sort they say,”Oooohhh I can’t eat this around you.”

When in reality, I could give less of a you-know-what.

Eat what you want. Just don’t try to convince me of your dogma or rationalize to me when I don’t ask for it.

Back to this lady…

She’s telling me how she dropped 10…

The other day I was talking to a client and he asked me a simple question,

“Why are all the things we’re doing going against what I’ve been told to do my whole life?”

The answer to this question is:

Most of what we’ve been lead to believer about losing weight and getting lean…

Sometimes when I walk into a regular gym it feels like I’m walking into a Jane Fonda commercial.

Lot’s of cardio bunnies. Side leg raises. Lot’s of machines.

This is my opinion so take it for what it’s worth but it really feels like most men in the gym are running in a hamster wheel going nowhere.

Don’t even get me started on the personal trainers who just got their weekend certificate.

To see them put their clients through unnecessary torture is like watching Rick Astley’s “never gonna give you up” music video over and over.

Watch this 100x and…

I have a reputation for being a known skipper of breakfast.

I would wait until 2pm until I had my first meal and during the time of “fasting” I would drink water and coffee.


I recently went on my honeymoon and during that time I stayed at some hotel and each place I stayed at had FREE breakfast.

I was on my honeymoon and the breakfast was free…

What’s a guy to do?

So I did what almost every guy would do in that situation: I ate the breakfast. Ooooh, and it was goood.

Omelettes, pastries, yogurts…heck they even…

I’ve been doing a little experiment for the past 30 days that I wanted to share with you.It was a simple test but one that had a profound effect on my fat loss.You see, like a lot of people the holidays got to me.

After many parties, dinners and more parties I saw my weight jump up to a region that I hadn’t been in a very long time. Hey, it happens we’re all human.


My belt was fitting a bit tighter than I was used to. My shirts were getting a little TOO fitted. …

There’s a little place in Japan that have the most octogenarian’s (80–89 year olds) in the world.

They also happen to average out at the lowest BMI as well. ⁣ ⁣ Most notably, they are the only population in the world who practice self imposed calorie restriction.⁣ ⁣

They do this by practicing a technique they call, “Hara hachi bun”, which means to eat until you are 80% full.⁣ ⁣ Have you ever felt an urge to “clean your plate”?⁣ ⁣

Have you ever grabbed for seconds even though your stomach couldn’t take anymore?⁣ …

We have made clocks that are perfectly in sync with the industrial machinery and the Information Age and perfectly out of sync with nature and our circadian rhythm.”Khang Kijarro Nguyen

Do you ever feel a bit off with your body?

Maybe you’re eating healthy but can’t seem to shake the weight? Maybe your body is in constant hunger mode craving the foods that you shouldn’t be eating?

Do you have trouble focusing for long periods of time?

Can’t seem to control your mood at times?

Or perhaps you’re battling periods of low energy throughout the day and can’t…
