More Than a Number on the Scale

A post from Sarah (tall trainer's wife)

One of the hardest obstacles of boot camp for me was the SCALE.  I was (and some days still am) a person whose day was ruled by the number on the scale.

It’s tough to find the truly biggest fear since I don’t spend much of my time trying to figure out everything I’m afraid of.  I know this is WAY up there on the fear scale.  It’s not snakes, public speaking, or cancer though all three can be very scary.

The Sarah and Jeremy Story

Posted by on August 21, 2013 at 12:38 am

God has blessed me with an amazing woman.  She stretches me to be better.  I love her like crazy!

We have now been married 4 years though both Sarah and I both agree it feels like 10!  But in a good way.  I cannot imagine life with out her and it feels like we are old friends, like I’ve known her when I was a kid.

There was a testimonial on a different local fitness business website.  It was from a VERY close friend and while it didn’t say anything bad about us it did bother me because of how close this person was and the way they said what they said.

The Arlen I Knew

Posted by on April 16, 2013 at 3:26 am

I heard about Arlen’s passing this morning from Sarah over the phone. I felt sick to my stomach and like I was in some kind of surreal dream. After hanging up the phone, I sat in my car and cried for some time until I felt exhausted and drained of tears. I just couldn’t believe I wouldn’t talk to him again.

I can’t believe he’s dead…

I can’t believe he’s dead.


Am I allowed to say dead?  I don’t know the right thing to say.  Passed, deceased, at rest, no longer with us.  All I know is he is one of those.  And that news hit me like a punch to the stomach.  I’m still reeling from it at it’s been almost 12 hours.

29 Things I’ve Learned in my 10 Years as a Personal Trainer

Posted by on January 20, 2013 at 11:34 pm

This month marks 10 years that I have been training people.  I have learned, unlearned, and relearned many things it that time.  Research has added a lot to our understanding of how the body works and changed many things.  Plus I’ve grown personally.  I went from working at a club as a trainer and group exercise instructor, to managing the personal training department, to moving back home and starting my own training business.

One of our beliefs at tall trainer is in a “no I can’t” approach to life.  This means believing in your self that more is possible for you.  I was put to the test recently.

Three people lost over 40 pounds in only 3 months!!!

All 5 lost 187.2 Pounds combined in 3 months!

These are regular people just like you.  They didn’t get to go to a “RANCH”.  They had to do this in the middle of real life!  They have families, and get togethers, and jobs!
