Alcohol and Fitness???!!!

Ask anyone in the health and wellness profession, if you want to be healthy and get fit one of the first things to do is stop drinking alcohol. All alcohol. All the time. Well, for some people that just doesn’t work. Like me! Bar owner and fitness professional. This post is going to talk about some of the effects alcohol has on you, some of the myths that people cling to, and how to live a healthy life without going insane.

You drink beer AND lose weight?!

Talk to just about anyone about getting into shape and one of the first things they say is “Cut out beer! It’s nothing but empty calories, and all those carbs!” There are even jokes about doing “12 ounce curls” or having a “beer gut”. Well, imagine being a home brewer and owner of a craft beer pub while also being a personal trainer and fitness coach! What if I were to tell you that you can continue to enjoy great craft beer and still get in shape? *twists waxed mustachios*
