6 Month Old Cheeseburger…

May 9, 2011

Mr. Wheeler, a Science teacher at W.B. Ray High School has an ongoing experiment with his Nutrition and Science class.  I thought you might like to read about it.

  6-Month Cheeseburger

The 6-Month Old McDonald’s Cheeseburger

“The attached photo is of a ongoing science experiment that my students performed in Nutrition and Science Class. Funny thing is you will not see any mold, bacteria, or deterioration of any kind. Something to ponder the next time your deciding on where to eat…perhaps a few too many preservatives.”

And millions of people eat this everyday.  Pretty scary!  Think before you eat!


The Last 3-Weeks

July 11, 2010

It has been a great 3-Weeks capped off by our Fitness Boot Camp Fundraiser for the Ready or Not Foundation. We raised $850 for the Foundation! Not bad for a one hour workout.  Checkout out on Channel 6 News.

I have been blown away by our Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camp members commitment to their workouts.  Even with a hurricane looming in the Gulf of Mexico and vacation on everyone’s minds they still made their workouts.  Keep it UP!

Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camps started its Pinnacle Fitness Challenge in conjunction with the Mayor’s Fitness Council. It is going really well! All 11 participants are seeing significant changes in their body’s and their lives. Lowering blood sugar, losing inches, losing pounds, gaining confidence, getting stronger, etc… are just a few of the comments I have been hearing from the participants.

We also launched our first boot camp 2 go program yesterday. The program consists of video workouts and music provided by Workout Muse. If you haven’t checked out Workout Muse click here to download your next interval workout. Or if you have smart phone check out the Workout Muse App. This App will let you create a music playlist using your own music. While you are working out  it will keep count of your work to rest rounds.  It is a great training tool for metabolic training like we do in boot camp or cardio intervals you do on your off days.

Next time you are at Freebirds try the Freedom Salad. I ate one yesterday and was pretty fired up about it. Lots of greens, lean chicken, black beans, tomatoes, pico, and guacamole. I didn’t even need salad dressing. 5 Stars!!!!

Have a great week, eat clean, try a recovery workout with a foam roller if you get the opportunity.

Healthy Feet Can Make You Skinny

May 28, 2010

I know foot care isn’t in the news everyday. But did you know that foot care can make you skinnier, look great, feel incredible, and increase your flexibility.

By rolling out your feet on a tennis ball like I have demonstrated in the video you are less likely to experience very painful plantar faciaitis. If you have had it before you know what I am talking about. You don’t want to walk, workout, run, or move your foot at all. So if you can’t move your feet you won’t be able to burn off all those calories.

I hope you enjoy the post and the video. Leave a comment if you like it or don’t like it.

Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camp Fundraiser

April 20, 2010

This Wednesday morning at 6am at the First Christian Church Fellowship Hall I will be hosting a Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camp Fundraiser!  We will be raising money for the Christus Spohn Cancer Center Renewal Project.The money we raise will go towards; innovative equipment for cancer treatment, building renovations, and a therapeutic garden for patients and family members.

Most of us have been affected by cancer in some way.  Some more profoundly than others. This is a great opportunity to help others who suffer from the disease and the family members who are trying to support their loved one’s during during their treatment.

I would hope you would be able to join us for a 50 minute workout this Wednesday at 6am.  The cost is a minimum donation of $10 per person.  Please make checks payable to the Christus Spohn Foundation.

This is also a great opportunity to invite a friend or family member to boot camp. This will be a great workout and also a good introduction to anyone who hasn’t joined us yet.

I will also be raffling off a F.R.E.E. month of Boot Camp and giving away some other goodies.

If you have any questions or just want to let me know you can make it just reply to this email.

If you haven’t been apart of Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camp you can still join us for this worthwhile cause.

Committed to Your Success,


P.S. I just created a new Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camps website.  Check it out at and let me know what you think.
