I wanted to share an eye-opening comment with everyone. I just got off the phone with focus coach Debbie Cohen and she passed this quote along that instantly changed my mindframe.
"Never again will I do anything for anyone that I do not feel directly from my heart. I will notattend a meeting, make a phone call, write a letter, sponsor or participate in any activity inwhich every fiber of my being does not resound yes. I will act with the intent to be true to myself." Oprah Winfrey
Take a second and think about this, read it again if you have to. We get so caught up in all the things we "have" to do that we can't do the things we want to do. I do it myself, everytime I set aside time for a project something happens. I have to give up part of myself to do something for someone else. Don't get me wrong, you must give yourself to others to be happy and successful in life but you have to remember to hold onto to some time for you.
Working out is the perfect example of this, when we train it is just us alone. Nothing holding us back, unless you are one of those people who talks on your cell phone or goes to the gym to meet people. Think about the quote and more importantly act on it right now.
All The Best

Two Things You Can Do Right Now to Save Your Low Back
It has been estimated that 95% of Americans will experience some form of low back pain during the course of their life. Chances are that you’re either suffering from low back pain now or have already. I bet you don’t even know the worst thing for your low back. Here’s a hint, you’re doing it right now. Sitting down for prolonged periods of time is the one of the worst things that you can do for your low back. You’re forcing your low back to adapt a posture that it isn’t used to while you twist and bend throughout the day.
Here’s two things that you can do right now in the office to make your low back feel better without even standing up.
1) Change the position of your body every 10-15 minutes. Being in any posture for too long forces our low back tissues to “creep” into an unnatural position. Then when we’re required to move to answer the phone or grab a file, we place a force on our low back that we cannot absorb. Simply uncrossing your legs or shifting to one side of the chair can prevent this tissue change.
2) Sit all the way back in your chair. I bet your sitting at the edge of your chair reading this right now. Don’t feel bad, the majority of people do. Sitting at the edge of your chair forces your back to go into extension. An example would be to imagine your neck dipping back to touch the top of your chair, that’s extension. This is terrible for your low back as it puts unneeded pressure on your low back discs and joints.
Enjoy the rest of your day!
“I had been experiencing severe low back pain before I consulted with Jimmy. Everyone I worked with before had all looked at my low back but they all said my low back was fine. Jimmy found the source of the pain to be a groin tear that I suffered 10 years ago. He was able make some corrections and now I’m playing and looking better then before, plus I’m not experiencing any low back pain”
Yours in Health

What is Body Enhancement?
Ever since I've been signing my emails and letters with the term "Body Enhancement Specialist" I've been getting alot of questions about what Body Enhancement is. Body Enhancement can be defined as doing anything that the client specifically needs to enhance their body. I work with competitive athletes, fitness competitors and people just trying to look good naked. That doesn't mean I train them all the same way. I pride myself on being able to adapt to my client. Stay tuned because I have two HUGE announcements to make in the upcoming days.

MAKING RESOLUTIONS MEANS SOMETHING
Why is it tradition to wait until the beginning of the year to make resolutions? Plans for success, things we've never dreamed to do. Why isn't it an everyday thing? Why can't we focus on what we want to do everyday?
Don't find yourself being one of those people that says "I wish" become one of those who says "I did". It really is simple. To quote Will Smith in the movie The Pursuit of Happyness
"If you want something, go get it, period."
