- Adjustable Dumbbells. If you are looking to buy equipment to use at home, then adjustable dumbbells are the way to go. This particular set is one that a client of mine bought and we’ve had a great deal of success with. The ability to easily adjust the weights is great and because they don’t take up much room you can easily store them.

- OXO Good Grips 5-Pound Food Scale with Pull-Out Display, Black. This is the food scale that I have and I really love it. It makes weighing food super easy. I use it to weight nuts, meat, or other items to help control the amount of food I eat.
I’ve learned a tremendous amount from reading a variety of books. These books are all outstanding and will help you not only get in better shape, but develop better habits to allow you to live an awesome life.
- Man 2.0 Engineering the Alpha: A Real World Guide to an Unreal Life: Build More Muscle. Burn More Fat. Have More Sex. This is a really insightful book for men. The authors go really in depth about hormones and how optimizing certain hormones will allow you to build muscle and burn fat. Their approach to nutrition, particularly talking about intermittent fasting, is very intriguing and I’ve utilized a few different tactics from this book with my own clients.
- Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think. This is a book everyone should read. It will blow you mind with the countless studies it details on how we eat too much without even thinking about it.
