24/7-365: I am a Physician who is trained to practice Adult Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. I strive to live a balanced lifestyle focusing on Medicine, Fitness and Faith. Through my Instagram and YouTube Channel “MedFitFaith” I strive to inspire the others to live everyday as if it is their last. I believe that in order to surpass our goals, we must strive to push boundaries, overcome obstacles, and endure hardships. Through this journey we learn to develop character, integrity, and perseverance, which propel us to accomplish more than we could ever fathom. I am currently getting out of my comfort zone and training for an ultra marathon (November 4th in Tulsa, OK) followed by the St. Jude Marathon (December 1st, Memphis, TN) with the goal of finishing the ultra and then running a Boston Marathon qualifying time in the marathon, while maintaining my muscle mass. It is through a functional bodybuilding style of lifting that I believe this is truly possible. “Set your goals impossibly high….Then stubbornly and blindly pursue them until even your failures become records.” – Ross Edgley
TODAY: Each morning, I start my day off with an early morning Bible study followed by a cardio session for the day. My beautiful wife and I run together and, for example today, we have speed work, which will end up totaling 10+ miles. After my cardio session I will be headed to the work as an Internist on the General Medicine Wards. I usually get off work around 5-6:00pm. On my way home, I will stop at our local gym and follow my workout plan designed by Strong Docs. If I included all the times I ate during the day, one would wonder if I see patients while eating, so we’ll leave that out for now. Then I end my night spending quality time with my wife, sharing what we learned from our patients; she’s a pediatrician, too!
TOMORROW: I am looking forward to knocking another item off of my bucket list: Finishing this ultra marathon (30 miler) while maintaining my muscle mass. I am also looking forward to breaking my PR in the marathon (26.2 miles) distance, by running a sub 3 hour marathon.
MY MAX: I currently train by running 5-6 days a week. I have special days each week set aside for speed work, tempo work, and distance work with 2-3 easy recovery runs in between. In terms of weight lifting, I follow an 8-day split routine:
Nutrition: When I’m working long hours in the hospital and training multiple hours every day, it is essential to have good, easily accessible fuel that I can eat on the go. I look to Promax to give me the essential fuel to get through my workouts with high energy and intensity. In my white coat pocket, my car, in my gym bag, I literally have these promax nutrition bars stashed everywhere. I eat a balanced, higher carb diet to fuel my endurance training and my rigorous workouts and Promax helps me to do this by providing me with one of the best tasting protein bars out there. Whether it is an intense leg day in the gym, 25 mile long run, or a 16 hour shift in the intensive care unit, Promax bars are the perfect fuel to help you crush your workouts.
LOOKING FOR: Individuals who are tired of being mediocre. I believe that each and every one of us is capable of accomplishing more than we could ever imagine. I want to inspire the world to live a life full of love, passion, and zeal toward helping others while striving toward accomplishing goals and aspirations. We have one life to live, let it be a life lived that creates a legacy of pushing boundaries, crushing through obstacles, enduring hardship, overcoming fears, loving and inspiring the world, and accomplishing the unimaginable.
24/7-365: I move my body every day… tower running, swimming, inline skating, Crossfit, biking, training clients, stretching. Handstands are done daily. I refuse to stop!
TODAY: Up at the crack of dawn to train my clients and myself. Go to bed early. Repeat.
TOMORROW: I never want my body to fall into a routine or get comfortable. I make sure I train my mental strength as much (if not more) than my physical strength, so I usually focus on the exercises that I either hate or am horrible at! We should always be working to improve ourselves and get comfortable being uncomfortable to become stronger and better than yesterday!
MY MAX: Not only do I have a strategy for my workouts, but I plan a strategy for my nutrition. During my hectic days I count on Promax to give me the energy to get me through it. I always bring extra Promax bars to share with new friends I meet along the way!
MY BAR: Gluten Free PromaxLS Peanut Butter Cookie Dough.
LOOKING FOR: Anyone wanting to step up their fitness plan, train for a half or full marathon, or just need an ELECTRIC JUMPSTART to get started on their path to a better and fitter life! I make full body, functional workouts that are fast, fun, scalable, and WILL NEVER GET BORING!
24/7-365: Going Hard and Staying Balanced. Going Hard by pushing myself further than I ever believed possible with confidence and a positive mindset. Staying Balanced- the key to my health and life- with a holistic view of fitness and an emphasis on core development.
TODAY: Disciplined development through Training, Proper Rest and Nutrition
TOMORROW: Maximizing all of my potential at Ironman 70.3 Austin.
MY MAX: Promax is essential to everything I do. I have Promax bars stashed everywhere- at work, at home, in my car and in my gym bag. Whether I’m preparing for a tough training session or recovering from the last one, Promax is perfect for my nutritional needs.
MY BAR: Both the Chocolate Peanut Crunch and the Lemon (Really! It’s awesome!!)
LOOKING FOR: The passionate! We live in a world of amazing people who are overcoming every type of obstacle imaginable; some physical, some emotional and some mental. These people have one thing in common- They Believe! I’m looking for people who believe- serious, passionate athletes of any level who believe in their dreams. I want to be a part of that and help them achieve what they once thought was impossible!!
24/7-365: : I’m a mom and I love it. I also love what I do, which is why I created my “WHAT You Love WHO You Love” series on YouTube and my Blog. Every day, I’m constantly trying to balance my passion, interests and career with my friends and family.
TODAY: Today is Saturday and my youngest son, Liam, turned one today. (My oldest son, Landon, is four.) My mom is visiting so I was able to get up and sweat it out in an early morning yoga class, followed by prepping for a small group of friends/family over to celebrate Liam’s birthday. I love the weekends because I get to spend the most time with lots of people WHO I love.
TOMORROW: We are participating in the first ever Stroll ’N Run, a 5K with strollers. My oldest son, Landon, will run with us – our first family run. I love living in Santa Monica, CA because there are so many options for being active as a family. Tomorrow night I’ll prep for the week by making my weekly “To Do” list. My new postnatal workout DVD, “Expecting MORE: The 4th Trimester Workout” just came out so I’m busy balancing press and media opportunities with taking care of my kids.
MY MAX: Like a lot of moms, I struggle with making sure I take care of myself as much and, as well, as I take care of my kids. I love having Promax bars on hand because they are low in sugar, high in protein and not too high in calories. They help me resist the urge to eat the leftover mac ’n cheese off my kids plate and eat something that’s going to give my body the energy and nutrient support it needs to be a better and stronger mom.
MY BAR: PromaxLS Chocolate Mint – I’m always a sucker for anything with Mint. My favorite ice cream as a kid was Mint Chocolate Chip and I still have a hard time saying no to Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies. Promax Chocolate Mint gives me the same cozy, yummy feeling, with less guilt and more nutrition!
LOOKING FOR: I love exchanging tips and tricks and learning from others who are working to balance WHAT they love with WHO they love, while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
