I have been working all over the place lately. I have a wonderful podcast called Workplace Hero, and I also write and record an episode and blog post every week over called the Get-Fit Guy. I have my online fitness coaching business at and my business partner Monica Reinagel and I have a weight loss program called Weightless over at Not to mention that I work on four other podcasts as a technician or producer.

With all that in mind, I have decided that I need to get all of my current projects and future projects under one roof (this roof) and to help with that I would love it if you would take a moment and sign up for my email newsletter.

Because I believe so strongly in the idea of Inbox Zero, I promise that you will only receive an email once per week (tops), and it will be short, to the point and easy to delete. And then, I will be able to let you know all the ways that I can help you stay fit, trim, happy and healthy.

So please sign up and help us stay in touch.
