LIMITLESS FITNESS MISSION
To help you build a body and life you’re proud of without the gym, kitchen, and overwhelming fitness bullshit taking it over.
Health and fitness has become as polarizing as politics and religion. It reminds me of the lunch room on the first day of highschool. You walk in, look around, and notice everyone is sitting in a click.
- Vegans to the right
- Paleo to the left
- Vegetarians over here
- Crossfitters over there
- Bodybuilders crushing milk cartons on their heads
- Yogi’s sitting full pigeon in their chairs
- Bootcampers… bootcamping
Who will you sit with? Where do you fit it? What “diet is best?” What workout program will help you achieve your goals?” You have to make a decision and you better do it fast. Seats are filling up and if you don’t make up your mind you’ll be pulling out the PB&J Mom made you and eating it all alone.
Don’t worry. You can sit with me.
There’s no health and fitness koolaide you have to drink to be a part of the Limitless Fitness Community. Your health and fitness isn’t limited to a workout program, gym, or specific diet. Your life is not defined by the body you see in the mirror. There’s no single right way to do this – The only thing that matters is that you give a shit about the process.
Before you read on I have a question for you. How would your life change if you became the healthiest version of yourself? Your career, your relationships, your health, your quality of life?
I aim to help you answer that question.
I give 99% of all my material away for free and have been featured on:

Love Limitless365 philosophy, attitude and common sense. I chanced upon your site by accident and was really impressed by what you had to say on diet and nutrition that I subscribed to your email blogs. That was just over 2 years ago and I am massively impressed by your single minded focus and dedication to leading a healthier life and making change possible. Your inspiration got me from a bloated 85kg carbo junkie to a healthy happy 76 kg in a few months and have maintained that weight now for 2 years. I don’t often write to people but thought I owe it to you to say a big THANK YOU. Keep up your inspiring work. – Paul Weddepohl
The purpose of L365 is to break the conventional rules about what it takes to live a healthy, fit, happy and purposeful life.
I do this by teaching, entertaining, and inspiring you through access to fitness experts, proven results, accountability, telling stories, sharing experiences, and writing detailed – science based articles that focus on nutrition, training, psychology, and practical philosophy.
I realize that there are a lot of health and fitness sites and that I have to earn your trust and respect with every article, video, and newsletter that I make.
3 ways that L365 is different than every other healthy lifestyle site you’ll visit:
- L365 takes a different approach to living a healthier life then most “expert” sites. We don’t waste time debating minutia here. Like whether or not you should eat a banana before bed.
- L365 doesn’t just tell you what you should be doing. It shows you how to do it and how to make it a habit.
- Health is a broad term. Part of creating healthier lifestyle involves mastering your emotions, managing stress, strengthening your mindset, and finding a better work/life balance.
Most of what is written on the blog is for me. I write because I’m often wrong and the blog acts as a personal journal as I try my best to correct my mistakes. If you read an article, relate to it, and it somehow helps your life that’s a bonus. It also makes me feel good inside knowing I’m not the only one who makes mistakes in this world – I hope you find comfort in knowing you’re not either.

Here are 6 big ideas that I want you to know before joining the community.
#1: You’re not alone
At various points in your life you’re going to feel frustrated, empty, and “not whole.” Heck, you may even struggle with anxiety and depression. I just want you to know that you’re not alone.
#2: The only emergency in life is death
You’ll have friends call you at 1am and swear they have a relationship emergency. Something will come up at work or school and it’s going to feel like an emergency. You’ll get your heart broken and this will feel like the world is crumbling around you – it will feel like an emergency. Hell, maybe you invest in something dumb and lose a few thousand bucks. This will feel like an emergency too.
It may not seem like it at first but none of these things will be emergencies. You’ll realize this as you get older, as I get older, as your mother, friends, and your kids get older. The only real emergency is death. The realization and acceptance of death makes a lot of things insignificant.
#3: Learn to love your faults and the faults of others
The ability to see and love your insecurities as well as to see and love other peoples insecurities might be the most important skill you can develop. It will make you more compassionate, empathetic, and loving.
Rules are good for you but learn to create some of your own rules – There’s no one size fits all approach to living your life so I am often confused as to why so many other people or institutions try to define it for us.
#4: You won’t accomplish all of your goals
Sorry bud but it’s true. You may not travel to all of the places you want to see. You may not sleep with all of the women you want to sleep with. You may not impact the number of lives you want to impact. You may not have the career you desire. You may not make the amount of money that you want to make.
Right now you may be thinking, “What the fuck dude? What kind of website is this?”
Just because you may not accomplish all of your goals doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pursue some of them. We tend to focus far to much on the end result – the accomplishment itself and forget about the process it takes to achieve them. It’s this process, successful or not that helps to shape you as a person. Your goals won’t complete your life, they’ll just add to it.
#5: Do and do not say
People say a lot of things. You’ll say a lot of things. Judge other people and yourself by what you (they) do and not what you (they) say.
#6: Anything that bothers you is your issue.
People don’t do things to you they do them for themselves. You have to take responsibility for your own actions and behaviors. It’s no one else’s fault but your own if you allow yourselg to get walked all over, are bored, upset, depressed, lazy, stressed, or a host of any other emotions. If you want something it is your job to go get it. If you don’t want something it is your job to not let it consume you.
Respect and empathy for others decisions, lifestyle choices, philosophies, and behaviors is of the highest importance. The majority of people in this world are good despite what you see on the news and I focus my attention on all that is right in this world as opposed to what is wrong. There will always be events and actions that are beyond your control, belief, and imagination. Embrace and marvel in those that are in the best interest of humanity and ask yourself what you can do to contribute positively and unconditionally to those that may need your help.

I’ve worked with far too many people that say “I hate working out.” Or “I don’t like the gym.” I feel ya, I don’t like it as much as I used to either. But training doesn’t need to be confined to a gym.
STEP 1: DISCOVER SNEAKY WAYS TO MOVE YOUR BODY MORE
- Park further away so you have to walk
- Work standing up instead of while sitting down
- Use the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator
STEP 2: FIND WAYS TO EXERCISE THAT YOU LOVE
Fall in love with fitness by discovering ways to move your body more that are enjoyable to you. Health and fitness doesn’t have to be confined to a gym. Explore other ways to train your body that you enjoy.
- Dance classes
- Rock climbing
- Martial arts
- Solo or team sports
- Role playing Game of Thrones at a local park
STEP 3: WHEN YOU DO HIT THE GYM OR DO HOME WORKOUTS DO IT EFFICIENTLY
When you do workout in the traditional sense become as efficient as possible. I’m a busy dude and there’s a good chance you’re pretty busy too. The days of me being in the gym 5 to 6 days per week for an hour or two are over. When I am in the gym, working out at home, or while traveling I want to be as effective and efficient as possible. I do this by focusing on bodyweight movements, the major lifts, running fast, and swinging kettlebells. The daily workouts and the routines that you’ll find in the Limitless body blueprint will help you to do just that.
To help you discover a sustainable way of eating that helps you get closer to building a body that you’re proud of. To do this I focus on building healthy habits instead of following restrictive diets.
I’m a nutritional agnostics. I don’t believe you need to fall into a nutrition camp to succeed.
While meal-plan approaches require you to choose between vegan, Paleo, Mediterranean, or other “labeled” diets, habit-based approaches don’t force this choice.
This means my progressive systems of habits, lessons, and assignments can work equally well for vegetarians (who eat no meat) or meatatarians (who eat mostly meat).
Of course, I do believe that a healthy diet generally consists of:
- Eating mindfully. Slowly. And until 80% full.
- Creating an environment that makes choosing healthier foods easier and not harder.
- Whole, minimally processed foods.
- Lots of plants.
- Enough protein to meet your needs.
- A healthy mix of different fats.
- Plenty of water (and maybe a whisky or glass of wine from time to time)
- Carbohydrates based on activity levels.
On my left wrist I have a tattoo that says Ikigai. It’s an old Japanese concept that asks your reason for being. Or why do you wake up everyday. My right wrist is blank becuase I don’t know how to answer that question. When I do you’ll be the first to know.
HOW DID LIMITLESS365 GET STARTED?
I started L365 in 2012 after a trip around the world changed my perspective on what a “healthy” life really means. I got fed up with living the life everyone else expected me to have . . .
So I quit.
I walked out of conventional living and set off on a trip around the world. This is when I finally asked the single most important question of my life:
“Who do I WANT to be?”
The answer I found on a rooftop in Japan was that I wanted to be better—to have an impact, to share the truth, and to get really great at just being human.
Now, I’m a misfit. A professional troublemaker. A challenger to the status quo.
I set out with the daily intention of creating the life that I WANT to have regardless of whether or not it ruffles some feathers along the way. I focus every day on doing more of what I love and less of what I don’t, all the while contributing to something much bigger than myself.
Because life is not meant to have limits.
It’s meant to be challenging, uncomfortable and best of all, messy.
And when it’s all said and done, I want my last words in this life to be . . . I WIN.
I’ve made more mistakes on my fitness journey than anyone I’ve met.
- Suffered through injuries
- Binge eating
- All or nothing thinking
- A treasure chest of supplements
I bulked. I cut. I crossfitted. I bodybuilded. I yoga’d. I’ve been Paleo. I’ve been keto. I’ve been vegan. I’ve been vegetarian. I’ve intermittent fasted. I’ve done high reps, low reps, this program, that program, this diet, and that diet. I’ve done cleanses… Basically I’ve done it all.
I’ve made more mistakes when it comes to my health, fitness, and life than I’ve had successes. But because I was willing to test my assumptions, work through those mistakes, and learn from them. I can now honestly say that I’ve built a body and life that I’m proud of.
And I want to help you do the same.
What inspired you to follow a career in fitness?
I was frustrated by all the bullshit that was out there. It was overwhelming and confusing. I want to break the conventional rules of fitness and stop all the koolaid drinking.
How has fitness helped you in your personal development?
It’s created life long friendships, pushed me outside of my comfort zone, and has forced me to try new things and have amazing life experiences.
Why are you so passionate about serving others?
Helping someone acheive something they originally thought impossible is an amazing experience. It’s cool to see how health and wellness can affect someone’s confidence and self esteem, communication skills, and willingness to experience new things.
What struggles have you overcome to get to where you are?
The same ones as you. We’re not as unique as you think. You’re not a special little snowflake and neither am I – despite what our mothers told us.
What life experiences have prepared you to be the person you are today?
Tupac or Biggie?

IRRELEVANT STUFF YOU MAY NOT BE INTERESTED IN
I collect superhero T-shirts, don’t own a car (motorcycle), and only have 33 items of clothing. My girlfriend hates that I don’t wear underwear or socks (it’s the “man” trying to keep us down). My favorite T.V. show of all time is Lost. No wait, Mad Men. Wait… definitely Lost.
I’m into travel and travel hacking, skydiving, bungee jumping, and any other adventure that threatens my life. I’m absolutely terrified of large animals in water but love dolphins.
I read incessantly and love the way a new book sounds when you open it. I have a man crush on James Franco, Justin Timberlake, Elon Musk, and Matt Bomers character on White collar (damn, that’s a lot of man crushes).
I don’t give a shit how much you bench bro or what your body fat percentage is but if you can do some sick gymnastics, don’t get tired when you play with your kids, and are confident enough to take you shirt off at the beach regardless then I’m impressed.
I’m not very bashful about sharing my opinion and there’s a good chance I will offend some of you when I write – Although I am very empathetic. Go figure.
I’m a huge sports fan, grew up in Northern Virginia just outside of Washington D.C. and embarrassingly rep everything about D.C. Sports. I now live in Southern California simply because it doesn’t get cold as all get up.
I don’t believe in cheat days. If you want to eat cheesecake just eat it. It’s a simple choice that either gets you closer to the goals that you have or it doesn’t – your choice.
I love my family and miss the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met a great deal. I think about here everyday.
Oh yeah, I love this site, I love you, and if I haven’t rubbed you the wrong way and you feel our mojo jives well together come join me in creating a healthy, fit, live without limits.
