Favorite Success Quote
“Humans are motivated most by seeing progress.“
1. Not Every Strategy Works For Every Body
Many holistic approaches to losing weight, gaining muscle, and burning fat work well, just not for every person. There are genetic differences at play. One plan might work well for one person but work ineffectively for the next. Metabolism plays a large role in this.
2. Learn About Each and Every Client First
You cannot know what to prescribe for someone before you hear about them. Learning about each client is imperative. In order for you to serve your clients, regardless of industry, you must be aware of their reality. You cannot know what and how to help a person without first getting to know a person and their reality. Until you know this information, you do not know how to best serve an individual. This is an absolutely critical piece.
3. It’s All Maintenance | Goals vs. Values
In order for success at something, or in a specific area of life, the lifestyle has to become something that you actually enjoy. For the science to work in a diet, you have to recognize the changes as a lifestyle. For health goals, people often ask Angelo, “What is it going to take for me to get to where I’m going, and then maintain it?” The lifestyle has to become something that you actually enjoy and it becomes a value that you adopt. Goals versus Values. Goals are great, but unless you adopt a goal as a value set, you will never maintain the success the goal initially delivered (fitness). For example, many people say they want to get in shape for a wedding in eight weeks. This is a great goal, but what typically happens after the wedding is that this person slips back into their old routines and habits. The key is to implement effective time management techniques and healthy lifestyle methods of implementation that work for your lifestyle.

If you could go back in time, what would you tell your younger self and why?
