    My life as a mom is anything but consistent.  What is consistent is my life is always changing.  Always trying to find and maintain balance.  I have found myself divorced at 34, after 14 years of marriage.  Never thought that this is where I would be and with three children later.  Training for...

  Your support team, the people you surround yourself with, are everything that will help define who you are.  I once heard a quote by Tim Tebow saying, “I never surround myself with yes people.”  By that he means, he never surrounds himself with people that always tell him yes to every question or issue...

Look, I get it: NO ONE likes to lose.  The worst training days are usually remedied with the idea that the hard work you are putting in at the gym is going to turn out as a victory later.  I have never went into a contest thinking about second, third, fourth, or fifth place.  Part...

I recently ran across a great article at EliteFTS on joint maintenance and it was spot on awesome that I decided to share it. With joint and musculoskeletal pain being one of the most prevalent conditions in today’s society, there are a lot of poor resources full of articles and experts trying to sell you on...

Here at NBS we have many things that are out of the norm, including a bunch of weird equipment that the majority of gym goers have never seen. We have more bars, kettlebells, and weights per square inch than most training facilities within 300+ miles of Memphis, TN. Did I forget to mention a FOUR...

Obviously by now, everyone has heard about the hikes in insurance premiums that are going to be occurring in Tennessee or in other states for 2017. If not, you can read about Tennessee increases here. With the amounts that premiums, copays, and deductibles are increasing, its no wonder that health care is one of the most...

Here I am, sitting in the office at NBS, staring at my computer screen for the past half hour trying to figure out what to blog about. David is out of town on vacation, and one of his clients just canceled on me for the 3rd time an hour before the session. One of the...

Recently, during one of my what seems like forever 30 minute steady state cardio sessions, I was listening to a podcast and somehow thought of a new idea for some blogging. I’m still trying to get this whole blogging thing down, and I know that it is meant to be a little more about myself,...

In this edition of “Ask the Chiro,” we will take a look at another common question that comes up a lot i the everyday patient, Heat vs Ice. Both are modalities used to reduce pain and increase function, yet many questions come up when discussing the two. Specifically, should I heat or should I ice an...

I am going to open this blog post up a bit by bragging on NBS coach Christian Anto.  In the past few years, I have been able to see him flourish not only into a great strength coach but also a genuine person who wants to help.  He spends down time between a full coaching...

Life is about so much more than the Gym.  It’s easy, as a personal trainer, to get tunnel vision and believe that you have everything figured out when in fact you’ve become complacent in several important facets of life.  I have divided my life up into 5 areas that I refer to my sacred geometry...

Two weeks ago one of my CrossFitters from Wolf River and (a very dear friend) was diagnosed with breast cancer. She went in for a routine mammogram, a lump was discovered, testing was done and cancer was also found in her lymph nodes. Simultaneously, she is dealing with a lumbar disc issue. She is in...

I have had many learning experiences being raised in this industry by David Allen and many of those stuck. He also placed me in a position to flourish and be developed by other amazing coaches and athletes through EliteFTS who then took a chance on me and poured into me even more. All of these things...

My Love For The Iron   My fondness for the iron is something I have found to be one of the most beloved things in my life besides my family.  So odd how it came to be about.  I was taking weekly yoga classes, at a local gym, and up to date on the most...

The kipping pull up is perhaps one of the most sought after gymnastic movements in CrossFit, but can take quite some time to learn. While it may appear as though one is just swinging on the bar and pulling up, there is actually a lot of technique involved. Strength and patience are also key elements...

Over the past few years, I have become a bit better about healthier habits.  Three years ago, after my first show, I did the bare minimum: I would eat breakfast, pack a lunch and come home and eat whatever.  Because I was so active (and 24-25), I really didnt see any negative consequence and stayed...

I want that gym membership How can you afford that gym membership? I found that when I first started on my fitness journey the prices of gym memberships were a little intimidating.  Family budgets can be tight and especially for me with three boys. I found myself determined to find a way to make this happen as...

GPP is one of those cool catch phrases that fitness folks like to throw around to sound smart (me included) but what is it? Is it metcons? Is it pushing the prowler? Is it steady state cardio on a machine? If you don’t know the correct answer, no worries, this article is designed to get...

As David pointed out on his facebook this week, we hosted The Clash For Cash And Cash Car Pull this past weekend and it turned out to be a great success.  NBS Fitness itself has hosted 10 or so events in its existence, and various pieces of our staff have been helping in some capacity...

The NBS Strong man contest was taking place down on Beale Street, this contest was closed out with a car deadlift competition. There was one weight that would be used and everyone had one minute to rep the car as many times as possible. Now, I am very competitive, so this turned from a fun good...
