3 Ideals That Blew My Mind (+my favorite new boy band)

Around the age of 24 I discovered three things that would change my life forever: 1. Paul Chek and his Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology method. To this day I attribute much of my success as a trainer to what I learned studying the books, VHS programs, and live certifications offered by the CHEK Institute.  When young trainers ask me what …

Four Audible Books I’m Listening To Now (April 2017)

Earlier this week in my birthday blog post I mentioned how important it is to take notice of what’s going on in your life (people, dreams, coincidences, omens, tendencies, attraction etc)  during the days surrounding your birthday. I first learned how powerful, accurate and resourceful this practice is from Stephanie Azaria. I’ve been receiving coaching from Stephanie for about a …

Music For Smashing PRs

This year marks Strength Camp’s 10 year anniversary. Ten years ago I decided that training in your typical “chrome and carpet” fitness center was not for me. I wanted to train like I always had, like an athlete. Dropping heavy barbells. Flipping 1,000 pound tires. Yelling. Chest pounding. LOUD music. Shortly after opening the first old n’ dirty Strength Camp gym in South …

The New “Selfie Strength” Movement

It’s clear that we live in the most me-centric time and culture ever recorded. Today everyone is their own “celebrity”. Every time you take a selfie, your celebrating your self. Every social media post… Every glance in the mirror… Every mention of your accomplishments, your new toy or what you ate today… is a celebration of YOU. I totally get …

Seeds Of Greatness

From 2007 to 2015 I gave away my best training and life mastery lessons for free on social media. With over 5,000 YouTube videos, blog posts and Facebook updates combined… I’ve shared a sh*t load of good stuff for setting you firmly on your path. This reminds me of the story of the farmer who goes out to his garden …

The “New Elliott” Podcast Interview

Yo. Good morning. GREAT morning! I have to admit… I’ve been sort of grumpy lately.  Rather than go into all of the details for the cloud hanging over my head I’ll just say that mindful breathing, meditation, listening and honoring “the gap” has been my medication. We don’t need pills or brain surgery when things are rough. All we need …

Vibe with more bio-energy (+ women in Miami nightclubs)

Miami Florida! Just the name of this city carries untold power… Big City Beaches Palm trees Cuban food Yachts Ships Sun Scarface, and chicks… …all beautifully buzzing with Latin vibes. Lucky for me it’s only a 3 hour drive to this blessed American hot-spot. Even luckier for me that last week was the second time I got to visit Miami in the last …

Remember who you are.

Strength Camp attracts so many different types of people, from many many different places, all with very different personalities, characters, hopes, fears, dreams and faiths.  Honestly, I’m not shocked.   The wide array of topics and concerns that I’ve addressed  in YouTube videos over the last decade had opened the  doors to invite in friends, not only attracted to the “Iron and …

BEWARE: YouTube Posers and Strength Camp Imitators

Most of the pretty posers on YouToo and IG produce a ton of sizzle… but ain’t got no steak. “Do this move for shapely pecs”, they say. “Do this ditty for rounders looking delts”, they say. “Do these mini-reps for more pumps”, they say. All this to produce the illusion of strength, ruggedness and big-boy boldness.  Nothing against these dudes, …
