    I have some interesting news for you today about how your workouts can help you sleep better. You already know that working out regularly helps improve your sleep. It only makes sense that if you make your body tired, you’ll sleep better. In fact, some research shows that regular exercise has the same impact on your sleep as sleeping pills!
    But there’s some cool new info about exactly how workouts can improve your sleep.

    Save HOURS with this simple meal prep trick

    We have a super simple, time-saving tip for you today – a tip that will make your life easier, save you money, AND help you stay on track with your nutrition. Here it goes: Typically, most of us fall into two camps when it comes to meal prep. We either overthink it, or we don’t think about it all. Overthinking is an easy trap to fall into… there’s just SO much “stuff” on the internet, in magazines, and on social media with conflicting information. It’s nearly impossible to filter out all the noise and to make an actual decision. So, you think about it, you think some more, and then before you know it, it’s time to eat and you still ....

  • 5 Steps To Level Up Your Mindset

    The perspective from which I want to discuss this topic today has to do with cultivating a mindset that actually allows you to reach your goals. It’s easy to get fed up with your current situation – whether it be weight, athletic performance, a job, finances, a relationship or otherwise – and say to yourself “I’m done! Things are about to change!” But then they don’t. Because that moment of inspiration from frustration is fleeting. A month, a year, and 5 years go by and things are still the same… …unless you create a new mindset that will allow you to follow through all the way to success. Here are 5 steps you can take to do ....

  • Creating Empowering Belief Systems

    Have you ever wondered where your beliefs come from and why you believe certain things about life and the world to be true? If not, that’s ok, but I want you to keep an open mind for me as you read this… You see, many of the belief systems we have aren’t our own. They are imposed on us by parents, society, cultures, etc… For example, what defines a successful life for most people is the traditional story – go to school, get a great job, buy a house, start a family, work hard until you can retire, then kick back and enjoy life. Today more than ever that belief is being challenged. People are beginning to crave a different narrative. But that’s been ....

  • Is your Diet TOO Restrictive?

    We are a society that loves quick, fast, and in a hurry. That’s how we move. Hurried and [mostly] ineffective. The best thing I ever did was [slow down]. The moment I slowed down… I got more things done. Why? Because I was able to move with clarity and intention. How does this relate to the task at hand; our diet and weight loss? Because the impatience that comes with hurried movement affects how we approach eating. We jump into new diets because we see people get quick results. We see people lose their first 20 lbs and we ask them how instead of asking them if they’ve been able to keep it off. We want instant gratification. But would you rather lose 20 lbs ....

  • What Gets Tracked, Gets Accomplished

    Are you tracking your progress on a consistent basis? “What gets tracked, gets accomplished!” is one of our favorite quotes at PHP. Countless times, we have witnessed the power of consistently tracking certain metrics leading to awesome results with the people we work with. So, what should you be tracking?

    Instead of just tracking the weight number, which doesn’t tell us exactly what we are losing, a body ....
