Quality of Life ... Delivered.
Constant Nutrition Coaching
You will receive daily diet accounting and weekly nutrition coaching – not from a supplement salesperson, but a registered dietitian who helps you make choices that result in lasting change. We don’t administer or advocate any extreme diets, nor do we sell you microwaveable “meals.” Instead, we help you balance healthy foods in optimum amounts and ratios for maximum metabolism. We focus on helping you make healthy habit changes that can last a lifetime. Furthermore, our dietitian will visit your home monthly to make sure you are always improving your relationship with food, and seeing the progress you desire.
Consistent Exercise Training
This is where other companies stop. For us, workouts are just the beginning. By coming to your home, your personal trainer better learns your specific lifestyle challenges and can prevent them from becoming roadblocks on the path to your desired body and health. Our trainers are passionate professionals who possess a burning desire to see their clients achieve their goals. Educated and experienced, they know exactly what it takes to build a better body, and will push you in a positive manner until your goals become reality. No equipment? No problem. We don’t pressure you to buy space-robbing home gym equipment. We bring all the tools you need to succeed, each and every visit!
Complete Biometric Assessment
Our unique biometric assessments will give you the much-needed month-to-month motivation you need to hit your checkpoints on time and achieve your overall goals. We capture more than just your weight, analyzing body fat %, power-to-weight ratio, visceral fat level, heart rate, blood pressure, flexibility, multiple body measurements, photos at different angles, and more. You’ll be able to both celebrate your positive changes, as well as make any adjustments necessary to avoid stagnation. We also measure your adherence to your training and nutrition commitments, leaving no stone unturned on our quest to get you the body and life you crave.
Continual Progress Reports

We hold you accountable to your goals, and hold ourselves accountable to your success.
Our Promise to You
We believe the human body was intelligently designed, and intelligently caring for it will yield the highest quality of life. Your amazing cardiovascular, endocrine, respiratory, reproductive, skeletal, digestive, and muscular systems are not accidents. (though you might think they look like they've crashed) Likewise, random nutrition and exercise won't form the body and life you desire. The right strategy, wisely implemented, and consistently adhered to over time, will produce the results you want. Just like your career and financial success were not randomly attained (even though some friends insist you are just lucky), your fitness success will not be randomly attained either. Here's the good news: we have the roadmap. And better yet - we have they systems to keep you on the right path. Isn't it time to the standard for your greatest asset - your health?
Other health and fitness companies might give you a personal trainer, but they don’t provide you additionally with a dietitian, routine monthly assessments, daily nutrition coaching, natural health consulting, and constant online access to all of your current and past biometrics.
Other personal trainers and coaches often operate on a whim, allowing you too many different holes and cracks to fall through and miss out on results. We have every tiny process, procedure, and strategy buttoned up ... so you see change.
Other personal training companies don’t save you time by coming right to you in your home, say nothing about bringing all necessary equipment with them each and every visit.
Other health and fitness companies want you to perform awkward exercises in front of an entire gym audience, while we allow you to push yourself physically in the comfort of your own home.

The Word on Wellness
Yesterday I was sitting in my living room working on getting hundreds of CD’s imported onto my computer, so I could leave that now old school space-robbing technology behind. (yes, even CD’s are now old fashioned, lol) After all, we were preparing the house for our first baby (Eden Abigail) and we needed to[…]
If you can remember this phone number (I even made it a local one!), you can remember what you need to know to have a healthy day – the accumulation of which will build a healthy body and healthy life. These 10 daily habits will help you achieve and maintain an ideal body weight[…]
As health, fitness, and nutrition coaches, we hear “the time excuse” all the time And some people have gotten so good at selling it to themselves, that we almost start buying it. But if we all take a step back and give this idea of “time” some thought, some powerful facts emerge that can give[…]
Over the past 15 years, I’ve worked with numerous clients trying to achieve a better quality of life. One thing I’ve noticed is that when an individual’s life becomes significantly unbalanced, their stress levels quickly rise, and their health is negatively impacted. Giving this idea of “life balance” a lot of thought, I decided on[…]
We all know that extrinsic motivation doesn’t last long. In takes less than 90 days for the excitement of New Year’s resolutions to wear off. In fact, if you look at fitness gym falloff, statistics imply that the external motivation provided by one’s calendar only lasts about 50 days. A big part of the problem is[…]
From November 2013 to November 2014, Ebola claimed the life of only 1 Texas resident: And many of us were appalled at how the health threat was mishandled. Yet … in contrast, over 60,000 Texas residents killed themselves in the same amount of time, 12 months – committing what can easily be labeled “slow suicide.”[…]
Pain often gets equated with bouts of physical exertion, but did you realize that most of our pain is caused by our more sedentary activities? We hear a lot about bad posture these days, but most of us don’t realize the severity of the consequences. Muscle imbalances and the resulting abnormal length/tension relationships can really[…]
It sounds like such a simple question, and many are begging for a simple answer. Well, if that’s what you happen to seek, you might as well skip down and click the link to my blog to only read the last half of this article. But it you start at the beginning, you’ll have[…]
I’ve been training people for almost 15 years, and though exercise can accelerate weight loss and make you look and feel good both on your journey and when you get to your weight goal, I can guarantee you that shrinking the stomach and revealing a sculpted body is all about nutrition. . The good news[…]
Protein is popular because people want stable blood sugar, less body fat, and more muscle. Indeed, protein can help with all of these goals. But who wants to eat meat and eggs all day long? Apparently, not many people. Hence the rise of protein powders many years ago. It’s the number #1 selling sports nutrition[…]
If you went to your mechanic to get your car fixed, and he suggested that he could repair your dirty air filter by removing your air intake altogether, you’d switch mechanics. If he suggested he could fix your brakes by taking out your master cylinder, you’d call him crazy. If he implied that your tire[…]
Many of us know an individual fighting cancer, whether they be family, friend, or acquaintance. We have actually been blessed to have the opportunity to work with a few at Elect Wellness, and are constantly inspired by their dedication to maintaining the best possible quality of life. . One client requested a list of cancer[…]
One of the most frightening things we face in life comes from the “inside-out.” It’s hormone imbalance, and it can scare away weight loss while spooking our bodies into shapes that we no longer even recognize as us. Here’s some ways to fend off the fear: 1. Avoid all soy products. Soy, 93% of which[…]
You get out of bed and almost fall over, swearing you stepped on a nail that somehow was standing vertically on its head. You hobble around the house as flat footed as possible, careful not to strike your heel, where the pain is most potent. What the heck is wrong with my feet? You wonder.[…]
As a camel in the office would be happy to remind you, it’s hump day. (yeah, Geico should pay me for that opener.) I thought I’d share with you 4 life-changing phrases, to get you over the “humps” in your own life. Engrain them into your subconscious, act on their wisdom, and you will be[…]
Sitting outside a Dallas Starbucks yesterday while enjoying a turkey-bacon egg white sandwich and a 1/2-pump peppermint green tea, I overheard a group of women sharing nutrition insight with one another. They had obviously just finished a workout, as evidenced by the audible moans while squatting into their chairs and the similar grunts of pain[…]
Not everything listed first on the left of this exchange list is terrible for you (some are), and not everything listed last on the right is the absolute best for you (some are), but make these easy trades in your diet and watch what happens to your energy, health, weight, and body composition. You may[…]
Most of us have been here before, at one point or another. You finish an incredible workout, having pushed every limit of every muscle group in your body, building a failure-inducing burn with every set, while minimizing or eliminating all your usual rest intervals. You expect to feel incredible (albeit sore and tired), like you[…]
1. We don’t know what a healthy total cholesterol number is, or even if there is one. If it exists, it might be just north of 200. 2. Some cholesterol actually helps to “patch” damaged blood vessels, so it might not be the demon we’ve made it. 3. Statins, which block the enzyme[…]
My guess is you have either had the creepy crud that is enraging the country, or know someone that has. Yes, it is “cold and flu season” again. And this year, it seems to be back with a vengeance! Approximately 50 million Americans will become infected with the flu this year, and millions more will[…]
Step 0 (vital habit BEFORE you start eating) You can only live for 4 minutes without oxygen, so oxygen is the first priority. Deep breathe 10 times prior to your first bite. The “French paradox,” the observation that the French don’t have our health problems, despite the lack of calorie restriction & food quality, is[…]
If you are anything like millions of other Americans, either “lose weight” or “get in shape” was near the top of your 2013 resolution list. . But, a common goal doesn’t mean common success. In fact, in this case, it means common failure. That’s right, 92% of people will fail to make their New Year’s resolution a[…]
In light of a French chant that became a popular English carol, we’re giving you 12 health tips, loosely based on the song that celebrates the twelve traditional festive days of Christmas: A Partridge in a Pear Tree The perfect snack is a lean protein source and a piece of fruit, like turkey jerky &[…]
Yep, you heard me right. And this isn’t some scam, supplement, or quickly-reverting quick cleanse. This is pure food science. Be warned, there is math ahead, but it’s nothing anyone who wants to lose weight can’t keep up with and fully understand. Have you heard of TEF? Well it stands for “thermic effect of food.”[…]
Lights on the tree, and Christmas music playing on the radio…Yes, the holidays are in full swing! In the coming weeks you will be faced with multiple social gatherings and parties, all in celebration of this wonderful time of year! So, we thought it would be helpful to send a little holiday party survival guide to help[…]
That’s right! If you don’t have some serious physical activity planned the day before Thanksgiving, get planning. Here’s why: I’m sure you’ve heard by now that tomorrow, on Thanksgiving, the average American will consume 4500 calories and about 230 grams of fat. (the avergae caloric intake of a 450 lb man) For those looking to[…]
1. A pig will eat anything: urine, feces, decaying flesh, maggots, and even the cancerous growths off other pigs. Their meat does not go unaffected. A cow, on the other hand, eats a vegetarian diet of mainly grass. 2. Pigs have but one stomach to digest their food, and subsequently absorb the toxins in their[…]
In 1946, scientists made a discovery that we have unfortunately abused ever since: DNA can be transferred between organisms. We are now reaping the “benefits” (read: sarcasm) of about 25 different genetically modified foods. In a cancer-filled world, you wouldn’t think that we could sleep at night while screwing with the DNA of life, but[…]
That’s right. Americans purchase 600 million pounds of candy every year for Halloween! Insulin surges, acid-worn teeth, food-dye poisoned bodies, you name it – in close keeping with all the decorative skeletons, it’s quite the celebration of deterioration. Furthermore, keeping candy around the house for Halloween trick-or-treaters can be a big burden to your waist[…]
Even the ultra-conservative (& often behind) American Medical Association recommends everyone take a Multi daily. The reasons are simple. Even if you eat a truly healthy diet (few of us even do that), we have deprived our soil of minerals (using chelating herbicides), and modified our foods to contain less nutrients (for taste, color, &[…]
The Ownership Client: This client understands that their improvements in health and fitness are ultimately up to them, and they accept that any decline in the same is their own fault. They look at their trainer and nutritionist as educated professionals who can provide information, motivation, structure, and accountability that they need to change. This client appreciates[…]
So what was Thomas Jefferson’s “secret?” It was exercise. (how convenient for us, eh?) Furthermore, he was SERIOUS about it. Two-hours-a-day serious about it. Let this collection of his quotes on the matter educate and motivate you. Don’t cheat yourself by only reading a few short ones. Take 2 minutes and read them all. It’s[…]
You are being poisoned. It’s being done through the public water supply, and if you haven’t guessed what it is yet – without any further ado, it’s fluoride – a potent neurotoxin that harms multiple body functions. It’s not for me to say whether you are being PURPOSELY “dumbed down” as a sort of population[…]
You see all kinds of estimates on weight loss, [First Name]. It’s 50% diet, 50% exercise, or maybe it’s 25% diet, 75% exercise, and so on and so forth. Let’s examine the implications of those statements and come to a deeper understanding of what all affects our weight on a week to week basis. We[…]
The usual words of “wisdom” you hear are “DON’T burn any bridges.” Well, I’m calling that out as terrible advice. Although there are some situations where keeping a “bridge” intact is a smart move, it’s also a crutch many lean on when they lack the strength to leave something behind and give all-out commitment to[…]
Everyone and their mother will tell you that age negatively affects their metabolism. Sure, it’s a quick and easy way to explain why you “just aren’t as thin as you once were,” but is your chronological age truly to blame for all the weight gain? Do we see a general increase in weight as people[…]
Seems these days that everyone who takes a walk around the block “needs” fluid, sugar, and electrolytes…and they need it now! Maybe even before the walk, maybe a bit after the walk, and of course during the walk. Really? Gatorade, Powerade, and all the other “ades” out there are over-marketed, and WAY over-consumed. They benefit[…]
Top Seven Reasons to Increase Protein Intake When Trying to Lose Fat 1. Satiety: protein is MUCH more filling than carbohydrates, helping you to reduce caloric intake by making you feel full faster. 2. TEF: or “Thermic Effect of Food.” Your body burns twice as many calories simply digesting protein compared to carbohydrates. 3. Lean[…]
If you are a living and breathing human being, then you have probably heard the news that the “weight-loss” drug HCG is back on the market. That’s right, I said back on the market. HCG is not something new, although many people may think that it is the latest weight loss miracle drug. HCG was[…]
You know. some “secrets” in life can be complex – like the 300 pages that snuck into the already 2,000+ page health care bill at 3am the day congress was to vote on it. And then some secrets are simple – like cutting the capital gains tax to encourage investment and business growth. Today’s secret[…]
I thought you would enjoy this list of my Favorite Funny Vintage WeightLoss Ads! Weight Loss Sugar – Pre-lunch ice cream cone for weight loss? This I could do … and I know which of our clients are smiling at the thought too (don’t even think about it!) Weight Loss Tape Worms – This I[…]
So what’s the secret? In a word: faith. Harvard University researchers conducted a study involving over 80 hotel room cleaning attendants.These folks were from seven different hotels. The attendants were split into two groups. The first group was told how beneficial to their health their line of work was. After all, many of them cleaned at least 15 rooms per[…]
I’m always amazed when I see “experts” on TV claiming that “a calorie is a calorie is a calorie.” Really? If that were true, then I could eat 3,000 calories a day of pure fiber and not budge the scale needle (whose scale still has a needle?) …or 3000 calories per day of pure alcohol[…]
Perhaps you are as weird as I am: when you go to change lanes while driving, you see if you can get between those pesky lane marker bumps. Doesn’t it grind on you when the tires and vehicle vibration reveal to you that you have failed even at your self-produced and seemingly easy challenge? Well[…]
I can’t say this enough. In the battle for your health and fitness, body composition is a more important measure than weight. Now keep in mind, however, a 5ft, 300lb person is not going to build enough muscle to warrant not losing any weight before getting to goal. But the proper journey won’t necessarily involve[…]
If there is one common denominator (and actually there are a few) among my most successful clients, it is this: adaptability. What do I mean? Let me give some examples: – the ability to adapt to a different training schedule for a week or 2 when their travel/work mandates it – the ability to adapt[…]
1. Lack of vitamin cofactors for enzyme production – That’s right, some vitamins serve as cofactors necessary in the production of enzymes. If you are low on vitamins, your body will not be able to efficiently produce the enzymes you so desperately need. Without proper enzyme production, good luck experiencing efficient digestion. 2. Acidic diet[…]
1. Reduce stress on your body’s buffering systems by optimizing your blood and cellular pH from the outside in by eating more alkalizing foods instead of acid-forming. 2. Keep your blood sugar properly balanced with multiple small meals and enough lean protein sources and quality fats. 3. Stay well hydrated by frequently drinking uncontaminated water & limiting or[…]
This article is not about smart phones, but let’s use them as an example. How much good is your phone when the battery is dead? Not much, right? In fact, I would say it is worse than having no phone at all. Why? Because It gives a false sense of security – such as believing[…]
I know people who are extremely intelligent and have consumed more how-to books in a year than most people will read in their lifetime. Yet they are still in the same spot they were 5 years ago. Why? Because they never implement the actions the books outline! Everywhere you turn you can hear people lavishing[…]
