Sports Performance Training in Buffalo, Ny

Sports Performance Training in Buffalo, Ny

We created this facility for one reason: to break the mold. This is not your typical gym with weekend certified trainers.

A facility where we… Read more »

The IIFYM Conundrum

The IIFYM Conundrum

If you lift weights and use any form of social media, you might, kind of, maybe, know what IIFYM is. My guess is that you probably see a picture of ice cream with a Pop-Tart® and #IIFYM at least 15 times a day. What does it all mean? Because it’s ambiguous in nature, everyone seems… Read more »

Finding Balance Between Your Life and Your Diet

The concept of embarking on any sort of a diet or structured nutrition plan is terrifying for most people. They envision hunger pangs, constant tracking, low energy, mood swings, and downright unhappiness. Sounds fun, right? No, actually it sounds like total fucking torture.

Death To The Bulk And Cut

In case you missed my feature article in Muscle and Fitness Magazine, Death To The Bulk And Cut, they have uploaded the full article on their website.  In this article I share my disdain for the typical bulk (get fat) and then cut (get skinny) style of dieting.
