Give Yourself an Upgrade

You can still be original, while giving yourself an upgrade. Some people push back on the concept of personal development because they believe they’d need to become someone different. Personal development isn’t about becoming someone new, it’s just about becoming a better version of who you are. The iPhone is an iPhone, whether it’s the first iPhone, or iPhone 7.

For as long as I’ve been passionate about health and fitness, the idea of eating 5-6 smalls meals a day to raise metabolism, has been a persistent myth. In my early years as a personal trainer, I unfortunately perpetuated this myth.
