Welcome - and thank you for joining


I just wanted to thank every one of for you joining my blog - and affirming your commitment to getting/staying healthy and in shape.

In an effort to make this blog more interactive, please feel free to leave a comment on any of the posts I make (comment button is near the bottom of the page.) They say to become an expert, it takes 10,000 hours of practice. I'm a little short of that total, and thus my comments are both open to interpretation and correction...

Also, feel free to introduce yourself on the blog. I think I know most people who are on here, but I doubt anyone else does. Post your goals, ideas, limitations, motivations etc. that you want to share with us.

Finally, so as not to inundate your email box with my worthless ramblings, I hope to post a new blog once per week (this one doesn't count).

On Wednesday, I hope to discuss "getting to the gym"... and by this I don't mean your mode of transport ;) What motivates you to get up at 5am? Or hit the gym after a long day in the office when you want nothing more than your couch or a hot bath?

Stay tuned.

Allow myself to introduce... myself.

I'm not a doctor. I'm not a nutritionist. I'm not even a certified personal trainer. I'm just an ordinary guy taking a journey toward personal fitness. I'm not a meat-head, and I certainly don't have a 6-pack...yet!  What I do have is an insatiable appetite to succeed with my body transformation. I am motivated, and I’m excited to turn my body into something I can be proud of... So whether you are a gym fanatic like me, or just considering jumping on the "fitness wagon", join me to inspire, or be inspired with the Dx3 Fitness blog.

Over the coming months I'll discuss everything from motivation and accountability, to calorie burning and Cortisol. I'll shamelessly plug my photography business (, and provide my no-nonsense attitude to achieving your fitness goals. My goal is to provide motivation, education, and hopefully inspiration to everyone reading this blog. It doesn’t matter if you are male or female, a competing body-builder or a couch commando. Either way, you can inspire, or be inspired through this blog.

If you have questions, there's a possibility I'll have an answer. And I bet if I don't, Google will ;) I'll even do the research for you and provide all the information I find right here.

What is HIIT? How long would I have to run to burn off a can of soda? What if I don’t have time to go to the gym? When should I be taking protein? What’s an HRM? Do I need one? These are all questions I have been asked in the past week, and some of the many answers I hope to provide to you through this blog.

If anyone is still reading this, subscribe to this Dx3 Fitness blog and let’s take this journey together…

Good luck with your fitness endeavors,
Jonny McCann
