  • Come and Get Your Kid!

    By Raphael | In Fitness, Motivation | on March 24, 2011

    My training partner, Jimmy, is a physical education teacher at a high school here in West Palm Beach. For the past few months we’ve been working out with five of his seniors — 17-year-old kids loaded with energy and overflowing with testosterone. Sounds like a lot of people, but with our respective backgrounds, we keep […]

  • Women Don’t Give A Sh*t!

    By Raphael | In Motivation, Nutrition | on March 14, 2011

    Two weeks ago I wrote a guest blog for Diets in Review. It was an entertaining blog in which I discussed cellulite and the ways to diminish it. The inspiration for the cellulite blog came from a conversation I had with my wife, Pam, before a presentation I was to give on the subject in […]

  • Fat Blast Cardio Workout

    By Raphael | In Fitness | on March 7, 2011

    One of the things you have to be careful of with the stuff that rolls around in your head is that you can’t be consumed by it all the time. It can drive you nuts. You have to have moments where you’re in a zone, having fun, feeling your body moving and sweating, and when […]

  • Buddy, You Don’t Know What Bloated Is

    By Raphael | In Nutrition | on February 21, 2011

    I’ve been a natural competitive bodybuilder for ten years. Two years ago, after competing in a show, I heard one of the greatest lines in the history of one-liners. Immediately after a show I’m depleted due to low body fat. This allows me to eat a lot of food for about two days without feeling […]

  • I Love You! I Hate You!

    By Raphael | In Motivation | on February 14, 2011

    In honor of Valentine’s Day I want to talk about that one bizarre relationship nearly all of us have experienced. It’s brought you pure joy and the most excruciating pain. It’s that quirky love affair we both gravitate towards and yet become paralyzed in when it comes to our ability to process a logical thought. […]

  • It All Starts Here

    By Raphael | In Motivation | on February 2, 2011

    When I first told people that the name of my blog would be The Power of Healing Through Fitness and Nutrition, the one word that everyone zeroed in on was healing. Then when people read my much–too-long subtitle (which I refuse to shorten), Dedicated to total fitness: Physical, emotional and all the stuff that rolls […]
