Releasing Stress + Gift for You

Trying to get your body to relax, feel better, and be more supple while your mind is filled with stress, tension, and/or anxious thoughts is like trying to open a locked door with a toothpick. It does not work! Stress and tension are a package deal- if your mind is stressed and tense, your body will be too. Neuromuscular connection means your mind must connect with your body to get it to relax. Listen to this... The other night I lead 30 or so people through a 3-Part "Feel Gooder" Virtual Experience. Part 1: Releasing pain and tension through Foam Rolling (accountability and self massage techniques to help you movebetter so your muscles can feel better) Part 2: Opening up the joints through

3 Mega Inspiring Quotes

1. "Don't expect to be popular if you choose to rise above the status quo." 2. "One person who choose to live a heroic life disrupts the narrative, 'We are living a lesser life' as the acceptable option." 3. "There comes a time and place where you have to decide, This is worth fighting for [or they are worth changing for]. This is where I stand. This is who I am. This is the life I have chosen. I will not run. I will not allow fear to move me from where I should be to where it wants me to live. I would rather die facing the challenge than exist running from it." Quote #3 is what finally pushed me over the edge to write The Youth Truth. What will you allow these three quotes to push you to do

You, 5 years ago :)

"Sometimes it's easy to lose track of just how far you've already come-- or just how far you still need to go in life. Use the following pages to make an accurate assessment of where you stood in these ten critical areas five years ago. Specifically, next to each of these categories, give yourself a score on a scale from 0 to 10, 0 meaning you had nothing in this area, and 10 meaning you were absolutely living your life's desire in that category." -Tony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within *Feel free to substitute categories that are not part of your value system- for me, attractiveness got taken out and replaced with impact/service." This is SUCH a cool exercise to do right now. Are you feeling

April showers bring May… I’m not here to tell you that May will be infinitely better than April. But I am here to tell you that spring always follows winter. Every year for at least the past couple thousand years, without fail… May will be better if you are better. If you are renewed. A new perspective. A new hope. A new vision, a new goal for your life. During the winter, you will find the victor recharging, rejuvenating, and refocusing. Planning about who and how he or she will be in the spring. Well, winter is here. And you do not have too much longer to take advantage of the winter and use it to your advantage. My recommendation? INVEST 1- Invest in your personal growth 2- Invest in your

I am missing my mom, sister, and nephews right now! Big time. I am also missing the PFP may not be blood related but you are as close as it gets. Anyone else feeling this way or am I the only one? Are you missing things that you did not think you would ever lose or be deprived of, so therefore did not ever have to miss? Aside from telling them that you miss them, how else can you show it? Send them a hand written letter? A funny photo of you with them? A personalized video? Today, let’s all tell the people whom we miss the most, that we miss them. Show them through one of the means I listed above. It won’t fix the void, but it’ll feel good for both parties. Join Us Today: Family

Syrian Refugees and Corona

I'm not here to downplay our current conditions. If you or your family have lost a loved one from Coronavirus, I can only imagine your heartache. But for many of us, myself included, the truth is that our biggest loss in all this is extreme convenience, boredom, being stuck AT home (versus being forced OUT of your home), MONEY (I get it, the effects of financial loss can be huge- but likely not fatal- you WILL come back from this)... 5.6 million Syrians are refugees (forced out of their homes against their will), and another 6.2 million people are displaced within Syria. Nearly 12 million people in Syria need humanitarian assistance. At least half of the people affected by the Syrian refugee


YOUR DAILY FUEL June of 2013 is when Player's Fitness and Performance "officially" started. That was when I started renting space from a fight club where I trained families: youth athletes, college athletes, moms, dads, you name it. I trained everyone (and we still do). That was almost 7 years ago. I have never seen anything like this, had to pivot this hard, get this creative, or lean more on my Leader's guidance and wisdom than right now... But I have also never felt more thankful for you and for the PFP Team. For my family, my wife, and my son. I want to thank you for continuing to support the PFP mission. By continuing to pay for your membership (full or partial), making donations, and
