Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
I hope the holidays have been treating you excellently 🙂
Now I do have a confession to make. I have neglected you. For that, I’m truly sorry.
The reason I’ve neglected you is because… it turns out my closet is an entrance to Narnia. Aslan needed a responsible adult to save the magical land, and he chose me as Narnia’s savior (LMAO Aslan. “Responsible adult” and you chose me. Clearly this mystical lion is on weed).

It’s been like… years since you’ve heard from me. Hopefully while I’ve been managing my Severely Tiring/Really Exhausting Sacrifice of Self (aka S.T.R.E.S.S.), you’ve been living it up all October.
I love October. Not only can you smell Christmas around the corner, it just so happens that the absolute best people are born in October.
You can’t argue with me. Today IS my birthday after all. Well… it would have been when I started writing this post. My birthday was two days ago.
(I mean, I’m sure great people are born in other months, but Bill Gates is born October 28th. This is the best month. End of story)
I also love October because it’s the perfect time for me to reflect on the past year and have a Damn, I did all that moment. I’ve gone through first loves and first heartbreaks. I’ve experienced the emotional devastation of being robbed then the joy of making that money back. I’ve traveled, met, and competed against people from all over the world. And of course I became FitNate so I could help you unlock them GAINS.
(Honestly it blows my mind how much has happened in one year)
In my musings, I’ve come up with 5 lessons that I learned in 2016/2017, lessons I believe may have great use to you. Here we go. Continue reading “5 Important Lessons I’ve Learned Over The Last Year”
I’m afraid to go to the gym.
The thought of walking into any place packed with people sweating, swearing and grunting leaves my stomach in knots. Worse, I absolutely HATE the feeling that people are watching me when I fail on bench press.
(Yeah I see the irony of FitNate being scared of the gym. Go figure)
I know it can be intimidating as hell to step foot into the gym. You’d much rather hide under a staircase and munch on Cheetos than enter the Church of Iron.
Unfortunately, you’ll not find your sexy destiny while cowering in a dusty cupboard — unless you happen to be Harry Potter.
Hence I decree: it’s time for you to overcome your fear of going to the gym, and get you some sweet sweet gains. Continue reading “Overcome Your Fear of Going To The Gym – Part 1”
So I have a friend, who I’ll call Ashley.
Ashley had an awesome figure, and decided she’d pick up running to maintain it. At first everything was great. Her endurance improved, climbing stairs became a walk in the park, and all her friends praised her for choosing to run.
Then… Crap happened.
A few weeks into her running program, Ashley checked herself out in the mirror. Her eyes widened as she noticed stretch marks appearing where there were none before. Worst of all, she was losing fat and muscle in all the WRONG places.
Horrified, she stopped running, and has feared running ever since.
It sounds crazy! Men, women, kids, criminals, politicians — they all run. It’s an activity we see every day.
Yet Ashley’s story makes you wonder…

WOAH there ladies.
It has been brought to my attention that a number of you have been deliberately sabotaging your fitness efforts. Indeed, the squats and donkey kicks are fantastic, but you’re doing yourself a great disservice by neglecting your upper body.
Half a car won’t get you to your destination, and a half-trained body isn’t that good either. Hence I’ve devised a bodyweight workout targeting your torso area, so you’ll be fit and able to go the distance. Continue reading “Dear Ladies, It’s Time To Work Your Upper Body”
From the time man discovered the glories of the gym, a cataclysmic war has been waged in the fitness world.
Like the Allied versus the Axis powers, this war is waged by people divided into two camps: Calisthenics (Bodyweight) versus Free Weights (IRON!).
Today I propose we put an end to this war, and help you choose the best path to fitness glory. Continue reading “Why Lift Weights When You Can Lift Yourself?”
You’re sick of feeling weak. You hate looking in the mirror. And Goddamn you wish every stair you climbed didn’t leave you reeling.
You want to change. You really do.
Yet you tell yourself it’s too complicated. You could never understand dieting. You say working out is too hard. You think, “If only I had the right genes/tools/…”
Alas. Nothing can help you get the change you want.
Unless, you believe in: You. Continue reading “Believe In You”

Working out sucks.
You’re so busy, so frazzled, so unmotivated that even the thought of working out feels like a ridiculously unfair burden.
It’s so tempting to toss the training and nutrition away, and be consumed by work, relationships, or Netflix on the couch. If you’re not seeing the results you want, it becomes even easier to throw in the towel. “I was going to be fat, anyway,” you tell yourself.
When workout laziness strikes and exercise becomes a chore, here’s a technique to get you back on the narrow path to glorious gains. Continue reading “Combat Workout Laziness with This Unexpected Technique”
