Thank you so much for stopping by! Time appears to be flying by way too fast and I'm looking to do something exciting with the rest of my life. I'll be starting an online fitness business called "GoBeDo" sometime this year. Be sure and check in. You'll learn about High Interval Training, Yoga, Body weight exercise, Spartan races, Functional training and whole lot more. Real $hit, for Old Timers like me. Why? We only have one shot at a grandiose and fulfilling life. Let's get busy creating one. Remember, it's the start that stops most people. The last thing I want to take to my grave is "regret!"
Peace/Love and Hugs!

Call your Doctor before exercising!

Hey! It's Marco! Did you ever notice in most health and fitness literature the disclaimer that reads something like: "Before starting any fitness program, consult your Physician?" It appears that we can be sued for trying to help someone get into shape. Give me a break! Are people so out of shape that it takes a Doctor to tell them to get off their ass and move? It's certainly okay for me to invite someone over to watch the game and offer them alcohol, chips and dip, donuts, pizza with greasy sausage, unhealthy pizza crust and bottom of the barrel cheese! Oh! And let's wash it down with some diet soda or a couple of beers! But let me show someone how to do a push up and have them get hurt (idiots) and it's perfectly alright for them to sue me. (Don't even try! My attorney will destroy you!) Why can't we sue someone for helping us have a heart attack? Well, let me give you two secret weapons that will help you get in shape and get healthy! And no one can sue me for having you enjoy these things...Attitude and Determination! Having a great attitude will allow you to see the good in everything and be thankful for it! Determination will get you through all the BS! (Belief Systems) Determination will get you through the hard times! You deserve to have a great life and excellent health! What are you going to do about it? Don't tell me, show me and I'll know just how serious you are! From this moment on, never say "I have got to go workout." Say this instead..."I get to go workout!" Turn your "I gots" into "I get." Feel the difference? Great! Now GO...BE...DO! You were born perfect! Stop destroying it! And remember, don't count the days, make the days count!

Overweight and Outta Shape

Arrrgggg! Hey! It's Marco! Are you overweight? Out of shape? Does your backside drag the sand when you walk down the beach? Does pulling up your jeans remind you of putting sheets on a waterbed? When you roll over on your side, does your belly do the same? Does lacing your shoes leave you breathless? What happened? I'll tell you what happened! Food happened! Lazy happened! Excuses happened! What's on cable happened! No, you're not big boned and no, it's probably not your Thyroid either! You like being fat! If you didn't, you wouldn't be fat! You want to be out of shape and unhealthy, otherwise...you wouldn't be! And you know I'm right! So what are you going to do about it? Probably nothing. You've been this way for so long, why change? And crappy food taste SO good. You're comfortable. I know. Aches and pains, bad knees, no time. How would you look if you had no excuses? How would you feel? Are you setting a good example for others? Do you wake up to coffee and donuts? I know you want to look and feel better. And you can. But will you? Do you want more energy? Act energized? Move! Every action begins with a thought! Thoughts are things! Start today. Walk for twenty minutes. Do a few pushups and standing squats daily. Jumping jacks? Clean the car? Play with the kids? Life is all about energy, and once you have some you'll want more. It's amazing the things you can do when you're full of love and energy! Remember, procrastination will get you nowhere until later. Want to know what foods to eat for maximum energy? Send me an email! And remember, don't count the days, make the days count!

An emergency!

Hey! It's Marco! Just a thought! Could you save your own life in an emergency? Heaven forbid a catastrophy, but would you be able to swim far enough, run fast and long enough to protect yourself from an attack? Or an invasion? I'm not referring to having huge muscles. I'm talking about functional strength. Endurance. Confidence. My fitness go to Guru is Matt Furey. Matt asks these questions...
Can you swim at least half a mile? Can you run at top speed for at least 200 yards? Can you jump over obstacles higher than your waist? Can you pull your body upwards with your arms at least 15 times? Can you dip between parallel bars at least 25 times? Can you go without food for at least 24 hours? Can you run two miles in 20 minutes? Can you breathe deeply and remain calm while under stress? Could you hit someone hard enough with your foot, fist, elbow or knee to knock them out? Does walking to your car with groceries sometimes leave you out of breath? Doing these things easily should be a promise you make to yourself. If you find these activities difficult...when would NOW be a good time to start a fitness program? Just a thought! I'll have some basic exercise and nutrition programs posted very soon! Imagine having the body and energy YOU deserve! Remember...it's the start that stops most people! Don't count the days, make the days count!

Elephant Eating

Hey! It's Marco...so my buddy asked me how to eat an elephant. Please...give me a break! But he's serious, so I respond with "How?" One bite at a time! Ok. I get it, but did I REALLY get it? You know what, he's right? Especially when it comes to exercise. Even eating! You see, it's better to do a little alot, than to do alot a little! Even students can do this! Why study all night, when one can study and prepare an hour a day. Why train all day once a week when you can certainly find twenty to thirty minutes to exercise daily. It's quick and it's simple. Sometimes I exercise for ten minutes in the morning, ten minutes in the afternoon and get in some chin ups and Hindu squats before showering for bed. Appreciate what ever you can get in! You are in charge of your life. And don't worry if you miss a workout. Everyone has setbacks, but did you know a SETBACK is a SET UP for a COME BACK? Life is going to happen no matter what. Pick yourself up, get back out there and fight the next round! Life ain't over yet! Sometimes, all it takes is ten pushups to get someone started! Don't need no gym to do pushups! And the last time I checked, walking was still FREE! Don't count the days...make the days count!

Five Bad Words!

Hey, it's Marco! Here are five words that will always stop progress. Ready? "I don't feel like it!" How many times have you said that? I know I have and you know what, sometimes I really DON'T feel like it! Going to exercise that is. But here's my trick! I have a 15 minute rule! And I'll share it with you. Not only does it apply to exercise, it can apply to anything. Housework? Yes! Studying? Yes! Time with the kids? Yes! Fill in the blank? Yes! Remember this...Activity cures everything! If you don't feel like exercising, try it for 15 minutes. If after 15 minutes, you still don't feel like it, go get some rest, but I guarantee you this, after 15 minutes, something amazing will happen! You'll be energized! Put your body in motion and the emotion will follow! It's so simple. Don't let your attitude determine your day! Unless it's a positive attitude! If you're tired, act energized! Act energized! That's how you will get to the next level! And I know you want to get to the next level! Your actions will change your attitude, your motion will change your emotions, and your movements will change your mood! Every delay is a wasted opportunity for getting the body you deserve! Do it! Do it now! And remember...don't count the days, make the days count!

Skipping Breakfast?

Hey! It's Marco! Why do people skip breakfast? Who knows and who cares? You know why I eat breakfast? Because I'm hungry and to push last night's meal through the system. Yes, to push it through! And you wondered why you're constipated all the time...EAT! If you're having an easy morning, eat an easy breakfast. If you're going to be busy, eat a heavier meal. Simple huh? I usually have a protein and fat meal first thing in the morning. Of course after I've had at least ten ounces of water. Got hydration? I'm big on green drinks as well. Here's a great get you started drink:
One scoop of Macro Greens. (Ask your Health food store) Not GNC!
One package of vitamin C powder. (Emergen-C)
One capful of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar.
One sprinkle of Cayenne pepper.
Sweeten with one package of Zylitol of Stevia. Mix into twelve ounces of water. Alkalize and energize! You'll thank me for it!
And remember...don't count the days, make the days count!

Habits and Excuses

Hey! It's Marco! So why is it so difficult to stay in or get back into shape? I've got two answers! Habits and excuses. Everyone's got them. I'm too tired, don't have a gym membership, don't feel like it, can't find daycare, there's just no time...Give me a flippin' break! You've got the same twenty four hours in a day that I do and I'm busy! Make time! You found the time to get out of shape didn't you? That's what I thought! How do you feel right now? How do you look? Do you look older than you really are? Have no energy? Got that big butt or that big gut hiding under your clothes? Yeah? Well, me too...Just kiddin'! :) Stick with me! I promise to do my very best to give you the best information I have on getting healthy and getting in shape! Absolutely, positively, guaranteed! Remember, it's the start that stops most people! Be well!
