According to Brian Tracy: “One hour per day of study will put you at the top of your field within three years. Within five years you’ll be a national authority. In seven years, you can be one of the best people in the world at what you do.”
I have spent many hours reading and researching how I can be the best coach, business owner, and help my clients reach their goals. I continuously get questions about nutrition, what equipment is best for home gyms, and how they can be healthy and more athletic.
With that said, it is only fair that I have a home base of all of the resources I think can help people like you reach your goals of being athletic, being fit, and being a great business owner.
Below you will find the books I have read, the equipment I use at my gym and at home, and also the supplements I believe will help you reach your athletic and fitness goals. I will continuously update this page so I can better understand this industry and help you.
