What does it mean to you to “Earn Your Booze”?
To me, “Earn Your Booze” means to live a life free from restriction. In the fitness industry, restricting ourselves to see results is seen left and right. Instead of putting ourselves through hell just for the sake of being healthy. To me, Earn Your Booze means that we can live a healthy and active lifestyle, but still have fun while doing so

How do you EYB?
Anything and everything. I’m a movement fanatic, so I’m all about animal flow, steel mace flow, and vinyasa. I’ll focus on mobility and movement 3 days out of the week and on the other 3 days, I like to throw around some weight sometimes as well - Olympic weightlifting and kettlebells mostly!

Please describe one of your favorite or most frequent workouts:
One of my favorite things to do in the gym is create flows and complexes using a variety of tools. For this simple complex all you’ll need is your body and a set of kettlebells. In a complex so all movements are interconnected and there is no rest in between until you’re done with all repetitions.

The Set-Up:

Start with an athletic position, feet grounded, spreading the floor apart with a micro bend in the knees. Your core should be engaged and you should have a neutral spine throughout the entire movement.

The Workout:
- Dual Kettlebell Clean - Dual Kettlebell Front Squat (Bring kettlebells down by your side) - Dual Kettlebell RDL
Repeat x 15

What advice do you have for those who want to EYB and improve their health/fitness? I have 2 great tips for anyone trying to EYB and live a healthier lifestyle. The first is that the mindset has to be established first. Once you establish the right mindset that you’re going to live your best life, don’t just try to do everything at once. Build simple habits like drinking enough water, getting adequate amounts of sleep, and choosing healthier choices with the correct portions before trying to take your fitness to the next level. Rome wasn’t built in a day - focus on the basics and master simple habits first. The second tip I would give to someone is to focus on mobility and movement quality first, followed by whatever kind of training you want to do. If you don’t focus on your mobility and movement quality, imbalances will likely form, leading to compensations, and possibly an injury over time.
