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!

Hey! Call your Doctor before exercising!! Really!?

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. 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. 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!

What else can we do with Pumpkin??


Hey, it's Marco! This Halloween, scrap the jack-o'-lanterns and save your tricks for the kitchen! The sweet, fibrous flesh of autumn pumpkins begs to be roasted, steamed, mashed, and stewed! (Or you can always have one of my favorites, the old "pumpkin toss!) Just don't hurt anyone! Nutritionally speaking, they're hard to beat, topping the list of super foods with plenty of protein, fiber, vitamin C, potassium and beta-carotene. Plus, they're low in calories! and did i mention they are LOW in calories...(just 49 per cup!) Ooh! That's low! Pumpkins are the perfect anchor for any vegetarian meal or they can be used for a great side dish! Just don't eat them with meat! Pumpkin and steak? Er, I'm not buyin' it! And the two really wouldn't digest that well together anyway. Oh! And given that pumpkins have such a tough outer shell means that they'll stay fresh for months! So go ahead and carve away but please save a couple and eat em! And they're really great with sea salt! You ever have a pumpkin, banana protein shake? Yummy! Don't count the days, make the days count!
