Bootcamp For The Boys

Why does every other bootcamp say women’s only? Perhaps it’s because they only do girly exercises or use little pink dumbbells or perhaps its because the girls are intimidated by the guys. Not at Strength Powered Fitness! Our girls can hang with the guys. We do pullups and squats and deadlifts and we use real weight. We challenge you to keep up with us!

We focus on strength and conditioning in every class. You will work hard and you will sweat your ass off like never before. Sign up for a free class and check it outself.


Homemade Protein Bars

This recipe for homemade protein bars makes 8 servings.


  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cup protein powder
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter (NO SUGAR ADDED–fat drained)*
  • 1 cup skim milk powder


  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and add enough water to make a stiff dough — you will have to get your hands dirty to mix it up; it’s sticky.
  • Spray an 8×8 inch cake pan with Pam and press in dough evenly.
  • Refrigerate a few hours to harden, then cut into 8 – 12 bars, depending on requirements.
  • Wrap bars in plastic wrap and store in fridge.

You can adjust to your portion needs by cutting into larger or smaller bars. I cut mine into 8 bars and that works out to approx:

  • 28.5g protein
  • 22.5g carbs
  • 6g fat
  • 245 calories

Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter Cups, sugar free, high protein (picture below)

  • 3tbsp melted virgin coconut oil
  • 3tbsp soft natural peanut butter
  • Chocolate Protein Powder, I used BioX

Mix oil and PB and add a scoop of PP. Stir and gradually add more PP until it’s kinda gooey. Pour into small cups and freeze.

For entire recipe: 837Cal, 67F, 13C, 48P – Per serving will depend on PP you use and how many servings you cut it into. This is sugar free & and healthier alternative to junk food but it’s still high calorie remember.

Fat Loss Tips for Beginners

Fat Loss Tips For Beginners
Fat Loss Tips To Help You Tip The Scale In Your Favour.

Ok guys…I would like to compile some tips for people just starting to diet. We’re talking never done it before and don’t know where to start. I’m looking for things like setting calories or macros, what foods to eat when, how much water, how to deal w/ cravings, definition of cheat/refeed, different methods of dieting, counting veggies, using artificial sweetners, etc….anything ya’ll feel like contributing. If you get an epiphany in your own dieting experience next week or whatever, feel free to share it here.

I will start by saying…I think the first thing you need to do when starting a diet is to set realistic goals. Sometimes when you’re just starting out you get excited, motivation is high and you just want to do everything at once and have everything happen all at once. Setting a realistic, attainable goal…whether it’s personal or competitive…is so important for keeping you on track when things don’t go as planned. And what is realistic is going to be different for everybody.

Some people have lived relatively healthy/athletic and “easy” lifestyles (read good genetics/young/fast metabolism) and can start out at a pretty focused level. And others have lived complete opposite to that and will need to take baby steps. Make sure you assess where you’re starting from and adjust your expectations accordingly.
