Many people desperately want to eat the “right” foods. But eating the right foods can seem impossible because every month or so there’s a new way to eat healthy. Should we eat dairy or not? Should we eat whole grains, or avoid gluten? Is soy good or bad? The list goes on.
The message changes all the time and becomes impossible to follow, especially because no diet or trend seems to make any more sense than any other diet or trend. To make it worse, there doesn’t seem to be any one authority that we can trust.
That’s why trying to eat right is so hard for so many people—how can you “eat right” when you can’t be sure what it means to eat right in the first place?

Patrick Barrett used to love to lift weights—in fact, at one point he could bench press nearly twice his body weight. But after a neck injury in a high school wrestling match, he was told not to lift weights any more. So he started doing bodyweight exercise, and he never looked back.
After his neck injury, Patrick had to find creative ways to make the most of the types of movements he was allowed to do. Once he regained his strength and his limitations were lifted, he continued to use this creative approach in learning new ways to exercise, as well as a new approach to nutrition. Patrick hopes to give his students the guidance they need to get stronger and healthier, even if they've been frustrated by past attempts to get healthy.
