Fitness Friday - Tips from Tyler McPeak

This 6'3" hottie is featured on many fitness magazine covers. 
I think Tyler McPeak would look rather nice on a romance novel.  
What do you think?

 Tyler McPeak is a Personal Trainer in Nashville whose passion is living the fitness lifestyle.  In his early days of training and modeling he developed an eating disorder. A happier, healthier man formed when he formed a connection between mind and body. He went from eating unhealthy food any time he wanted to highly nutritious meals several times a day. He set goals for himself and dedicated himself 100%.

Today, Tyler is a healthy, happy (and hot) guy who found a balance between mind and body.

The fitness lifestyle to me is not just about working out, 
it’s also being in overall great health and enjoying life the way it’s meant to be enjoyed.”

 It makes me physically and mentally feel better. Breeds self confidence and that breeds success!

Losing weight and getting into better shape is hard and creating healthy habits need to be worked into your every day routine. Tyler suggests setting realistic goals. Make a plan but also realize your goal won’t happen overnight. To live a healthy, fitness lifestyle means being consistent and dedicated. This determination is driven by the desire to change. Being healthy is important but if you want to change your body physically, you have to be willing to put in the work. However, don’t push yourself into depression or sickness. Learn to listen to your body and simply slow down when it tells you to slow down, rather than quitting.  Never underestimate the power of rest and recovery. Professional athletes treat their rest time just as important as their work outs. Always remember to embrace each day as a day bringing you closer to your final goal.

Tyler’s Tips:
1. Focus on proper nutrition
2. Perfect your form and master the mind/muscle connection
3. Be Patient!

                              Her Sexy Skunk

5 Flames

Coming September 25, 2014
Find it on Goodreads here:

Christine Jarrods wants to be a writer of paranormal young adult fiction so she’s pursuing a degree in English. By day, she tackles Chaucer. By night, she stalks the streets looking for something magical to inspire her muse. Finding a thread that suggests one of her profs might be some flavor of shifter, she decides to dig…even though she’s been warned to let it go.

Oliver Standish has a secret. Like a lot of guys his age, he’s scraping by, delivering pizzas, trying to pay off loans from a failed attempt at school, and crushing on Chrissy—the one that got away in high school. Only his family knows he’s also trying to deal with being a shifter…he sure can’t tell Chrissy. With her fascination with magic, he knows she’d want to know more about it—but how do you tell a girl who wants to find a monster that you change into a skunk?

About the Author

Virginia Nelson believed them when they said, “Write what you know.” Small town girl writing small town romance, her characters are as full of flaws, misunderstandings, and flat out mistakes as Virginia herself. When she’s is not writing or plotting to take over the world, she likes to hang out with the greatest kids in history, play in the mud, drive far too fast, and scream at inanimate objects. Virginia likes knights in rusted and dinged up armor, heroes that snarl instead of croon, and heroines who can’t remember to say the right thing even with an author writing their dialogue. Her books are full of snark, sex, and random acts of ineptitude—not always in that order.
