Localized cryotherapy is the application of cryogenically cooled air to specific parts of the body. Did you know that it can be used to alleviate pain, inflammation and speed up recovery from injuries? It does this through cryogenically cooled air penetrating deeper into the layers of tissue and increasing blood circulation.
I’m about to get my very own CRYO Penguin and I can’t wait!
As a celebrity trainer, I am always on the move. I, as well as my clients, need something to help them recover from training in the best way possible.
I started learning more about Cryotherapy last year and I am all in!
As we get older, the things that we eat, the environment that we are in, are all contributing factors to becoming more inflamed. As you may know, my new lifestyle plan, The Cruise Control Diet, focuses on a high-fat, low carb, anti-inflammatory, way of eating.
To add on to this and really activate your anti-inflammatory lifestyle, add Cryotherapy to your weekly regime as it can help to decrease inflammation in the body.

One of my go-to meals when I go out, is a big ass salad! Full of leafy greens and protein. What’s hard when I go out to eat, however, is that often the dressings that they offer are full of sugar, which completely contradict eating a healthy salad.
So I say, “F That”, to your normal restaurant salad dressing that can be harmful to your health.
These are my go-to’s for so many things these days. Coconut oil in my coffee in the morning, Avocado oil as a dressing, and they even have delicious nut butters for a healthy fat snack!
FBOMB’s avocado oil is made out of 100% avocado. It has all the healthy fats and is a delicious addition to any salad. I’ll sprinkle a bit of pink himalayan salt to give it a little something extra!
This way, there is no guilt with eating my big ass salad!

After a long day of using my laptop, one of the things I do is make sure I release tension from my arms and hands.
Since last year I’ve been using my Myobuddy Massager that has a flat spitting disc that not only generates heat but gives me a professional level massage in minutes.
This is the best way that I have found to reduce adhesions and knots in my body at home .
There are two different products, the Myobuddy Massager Pro and the Myobuddy Massager Pro Plus. The Pro has 3 adjustable levels, professional strength, a 6” wide massage surface area, and a 3-layer massage pad.
As if that doesn’t sound good enough, the Pro Plus has 50 adjustable levels, professional strength, 6” wide massage surface area, 3-layer massage pad, the smoothest and lightest of the massagers, and a reinforced handle.
These are affordable and if cared for well, can last a lifetime!

One of my secrets to staying young looking now that I’m almost 48, is collagen.
Collagen is a protein made up of amino-acids that all help with our body’s connective tissue, skin, hair,nails as well as gut health.
In other words, it helps promote strong bones, helps to keep skin smooth and wrinkle free, beautifully thick long hair and healthy nails. This is so important!
If you try and get collagen the way you used to years ago, you can buy the bones at a store and and you have to boil it for hours and hours to get to the marrow and to get the collagen from it.
Luckily, Kettle and Fire has done this all for us and made delicious flavors with it too! They simmer their 100% grass-fed bones with organic ingredients for 20+ hours to pull out all the collagen, proteins and amino acids from the bones. So we’re getting collagen directly from the bones that contain it.
They come in two styles, bone broth and soup, and they are both equally delicious! Their flavors range from mushroom chicken, chicken, and beef bone broth to creamy tomato, butternut squash, miso, thai curry soup and grass-fed beef chili. You can find a flavor for everyone in the family!
For a guy like me, always on-the-go, no time to cook, but wants to be healthy, these products are my go to for an easy and delicious lunch or a side for dinner.
My kids even love it which is a win in itself!
Look here for an amazing recipe with the miso soup and head to the links below to purchase and try it yourself!
Ingredients: 1 16 oz box Kettle and Fire Miso Soup 1 in thick x 3 in length fresh ginger (3 tbsp juice) juiced**See notes 1/2 cup coconut milk 1 tsp Minced Garlic 1/4 cup chopped onion 1/4 tsp Pepper 1 tbsp Coconut Aminos 1-2 splashes Red Boat Fish Sauce 1 tsp olive oil 2 medium mushrooms – sliced 1 bundle Somen Japanese Noodles [they come in a pack with 3-4 bundles) salt to taste
Preparation: 1. In a medium saucepan heat up the olive oil on medium/low. Once the pan and oil is hot add in the onion, juice from the ginger, and garlic. Simmer for 3 minutes, making sure to not burn the garlic. If your pan is too hot it will burn. 2.Add in Kettle and Fire’s Miso Soup, pepper, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil. 3.Add in the noodles and mushrooms. Once the noodles are cooked through it’s done. If you’re using the Somen Japanese noodles they soak up the juices really nicely. 4. Top with whatever you like, soft-boiled eggs, chives, radishes, cilantro. Make it your own! RECIPE NOTES **Ginger: Grab fresh ginger from the store that’s around 1 inch in thickness and 3 inches in length. Peel the ginger. Then use a grater, use the “fine grater” side. It’s not the big holes but the smaller ones. Grate the ginger into a bowl, it’s will be like a pulp. Once you’ve grated the ginger squeeze all the juice from the pulp in a smaller bowl for the soup. This is the most work for the meal and it really only takes a couple minutes. It just sounds harder than it is if you’ve never done it before.

I like to try and stay ahead of things, stretching before I workout, starting the day going over my calendar with my right-hand to make sure I’m prepared for the day, and staying ahead of any sickness that tries to sneak its way in in these winter months.
My favorite preventative care, that I make my kids do as well since schools are a germs playground is Xlear.
I’ve been using Xlear products for the past 16 years almost. My good friend, Nathan Jones, is the CEO of this company that was started by his father, whose mission is to provide simple and cost-effective prevention so people can live healthy and fulfilling lives.
Xlear has been the industry leader in providing the newest innovations in drug-free sinus care since they started in 2000.
I use their Adult Nasal Spray every day to keep my nose clean. Especially when I’m travelling and flying from San Diego to NYC, that’s a long time to be breathing in the same air that hundreds of other people are, and they may be sick and breathing that into the recycled air.
When I start to get sick, I use the saline solution and neti pot to irrigate my sinuses. This makes sure that my upper airways are clean and clear of contaminants, helping me to breathe more freely.
It’s super easy, cost efficient, and best of all makes sure that my family is healthy!
