Well, you’re here, so you probably want to know who I am. My name is Tony Schober, and I’m a certified personal trainer and the founder of Coach Calorie. I’m also a husband and step-dad to 3 awesome kids.

Back in 2011 I decided to start this site as a way to share my passion for fitness. Over the course of time the site started gathering a following. Today (January 2013) it reaches close to a half million visitors every month, and it’s growing fast!

Most of what I write about takes a common-sense approach to fitness, and I personally tend to take a slant towards weight loss. I developed a binge eating disorder in my adult years, and my self-proclaimed OCD behavior made me fall in love with diets. The numbers, macros, and methodical eating habits of diets forced me into a negative cycle of weight loss and weight gain.

Today, I still appreciate diets, as they taught me a lot about nutrition, but I’ve learned that being fit and healthy isn’t about a 12 week diet plan. It’s about slowly and methodically taking steps towards changing your lifestyle. I want to share with you the right way to do that and help you reach your goals.

First things first, I want you to block out all of the noise. As you begin to make the effort to change your lifestyle, you are going to be bombarded with all kinds of weight loss gimmicks, products, supplements, and gurus trying to sell you the holy grail of weight loss. Most of the health and fitness industry has devolved into a bunch of scam products and dishonest sales pitches that exploit insecurities.

The good news? None of those things are necessary. Save your money. I want to show you that all you need is your body and a steady supply of whole foods to achieve your goals. I am here to help you in any way I can. I’d love for you to connect with me. Follow me on Twitter by clicking the follow button below. I tweet out daily motivation, fitness tips, and healthy recipes, and I’m available anytime you have a question along the way. Hope to see you there!
