Advice You Don’t Wanna Hear

I’m gonna give you some advice you DEFINITELY do not want to hear… Step away from the barbell. Considering that you receive my messages, are committed to growing stronger, and you know what I’m all about, you may be scratching your head. “Why is Elliott telling me to STOP doing what I love?” “What the hell has gotten into this …

REAL MAN Calisthenics

If you can’t tell, I’m a fvcking masochist. Back in the day, it was pretty plain to see… I ran almost every part of my rapidly growing business, performed the duties of being a father of four children, took the time to show love and affection towards my wife… And I attacked the weights with an unmatched tenacity. You can …

Stinkin’ Thinkin’ Has Got Ya Trapped

Stinkin’ thinkin’ is a disease. Are you surrounded by negativity? Negative people? Negative circumstances? Negative thoughts? Well, I’m going to tell you more than just to “keep your chin up”. Everything in life contains its opposite. You can’t have positive withouth negative, just like you can’t have day without night or summer without winter. There will ALWAYS be the simultaneous …

Building Traps The WRONG Way

Gyms are hotbeds for fvcked up posture and muscle imbalances. Everywhere you turn there’s somebody with rounded shoulders, a twisted torso, or a pelvic tilt. I’m used to it… But there’s one thing that irks me EVERY time… When people BUTCHER their bodies while doing shrugs. Don’t get me wrong, shrugs are a great exercise for building big traps… But …

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 …
