The NIV Study Bible– This is the main bible I use when doing my daily reading.
Daring Faith- This is the first devotional I ever did on Five17Fitness.com. Its a great one to start with for yourself.
Jewish to NIV Bible– Sometimes you just need to read the Bible and let it speak to you. But having words change in translations make it a little more difficult to get the true meaning in a verse. Being able to see more of the original text in Hebrew can be can make a strong verse even more powerful.
Purpose Drive Life– Once you have read the Bible cover to cover, I highly suggest you check this book out. After reading this book be prepared to have more swagger in your step. It really does help give a purpose to the things we do in our lives.
God’s Gift to Women- Every male in the world should read this book. Married, singled, or divorced. I read this book in high school (target market) and it forever changed the way I see women and the beauty that God made them to be.
One Year Love Talk Devotional- Danyelle and I have a great marriage. Yes, this is me bragging. We read this book most nights. It’s full of little stories and Bible verses that make you think as a couple and will get great conversations started.
TRX- I don’t know if there is a better piece of fitness equipment than a TRX. 100s of exercises can be done with it. This piece of equipment will change your fitness life.
Jump Rope- I don’t know if there is a better piece of cardio equipment than a jump rope. A few minutes jumping and you will feel the sweat dripping down you. A rope and a TRX make the perfect duo.
Everlast Heavy Bag- This is my favorite way to release some stress. Give me 15 min hitting the heavy bag and all my cares go away.
Scale & Measuring Tape– To see results, you need to know where you started. Having a scale will help you watch the weight melt off. The measuring tape is to help see where those pounds are melting from.
Body Fat Analyzer- If there is one number about your health you should know, it is your body fat %. This number has more to do with your over health than most other numbers you can track, without giving blood.
Blender Bottle- There is not a cup in my house I use more often than a Blender Bottle. They are perfect for protein shakes, remixing smoothies, or just quenching your thirst with some water.
FOOD & SUPPLEMENTS
Whey Powder- You know that hunger that hits you in the late afternoon or right before you go to bed? Optimum Nutrition’s Whey Protein makes a great way to attack that need for substance.
Fish Oil – I take 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. I have found that it helps me a lot with my mood and my joints.
Garlic – I take 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. This is something I have taken for years and I rarely get “the cold that’s going around” because of it.
Lara Bars- With often less than six ingredients in each bar, I can not say enough good things about these little snacks. I rarely leave my house without one or two with me. You never know when hunger might hit.
Vitamix Blender- This is what I use every morning to make my breakfast smoothie.
How to be like Walt- I am a Disney fan. I enjoy Disneyland as much as the next person, but I really respect Walt Disney, the man, more than anything. He had probably the most brilliant mind that is often overlooked. This book is part biography, part self-help book, and it’s awesome.
EntreLeadership- If you own a business or work in a business you need to read this book. Dave Ramsey is a brilliant mind, that solves real life business struggles with realistic actions.
The Love Dare- I read this book right when I started dating my now wife, Danyelle. Past relationships really gave me a mixed up view of love. This book set me straight. After reading this book, I was able to correct my definition of love. Which lead to my amazing relationship with my wife.
