Stuff to Use

Clothing that Moves With You

Strike Movement

Their athletic shoe line is the cornerstone of this company. I have literally never had a shoe fit so well and at the same time work for all kinds of functions: walking, running, weight lifting, cross training and casual wear. I can wear them with just about everything except maybe a three-piece suit. Their clothing line is nearly as impressive and I’m just starting to explore their full line. So far so great! The best part about this company is that the clothing is built to last and will keep going beyond normal expectations of wear and tear.

This company provides the best valued meal supplementation. For the price, I haven’t found a better quality product. This best part is that you get to mix and match the flavors, the quantities of protein, carbs and fat to meet your needs. Toasted Coconut is my go to flavor.

Instant Pot

Hands down, the centerpiece of my kitchen. If I had to live off one kitchen gadget, this would be it. It’s a slow cooker / pressure cooker / do everything in a pinch classic. All meats cooked to perfection along with soup, stew, rice, potatoes and it can even steam your vegetables. Best of all, it’s easy to clean after the quick cook.

Cut out Chemicals.
Replace Them with Healthy High Quality Personal Care Products


Keep reading! I promise you you’ll be happy you did. There are some hidden gems in here for the gentlemen out there and all kinds of great stuff for you ladies. I purchase my sunscreen, facial soap, lip balm, body wash and something called the Charcoal Cleansing Bar (we all need this in our lives). It’s an ethical company with a mission to make your daily products safer. This company is obviously geared towards women as the target audience, BUT I highly recommend that my fellow ‘Y’ chromosome carriers out there take a serious look at this company for yourselves. We all need to take better care of ourselves, and this is one amazing way to do it.

Young Living Essential Oils

I am an advocate for preventive medicine and a proactive mindset in physical and mental health. Essential Oils are a critical part of that for me. And they just plain smell awesome. Young Living is the the only brand I trust because of their unmatched quality standards. I use their oils for my hand and face care. I trust their nutritional supplements, vitamins and minerals as the best quality money can buy. I don’t have enough space here to go into all the details, but basically I use Young Living products for everything: cleaning dishes, shaving cream, hand care, skin care, a cologne replacement, cooking and replacing candles in my home (I don’t like open flames in my house if I don’t need them).

Stuff to Know

Food / Nutrition

Renaissance Periodization

These nutrition and training experts know how to help athletes achieve their goals. They helped me meet my body composition goals (I lost 25 lbs) and maintain strength while doing it. A must for anyone who wants to change their body composition (get bigger or smaller) and do it smart and sustainably. I highly recommend all their books, but especially Scientific Principles of Strength Training. I also like their motto ” Science is Stronger”.
