I’m back!

Hey everyone! If you’ve never taken a breather, I highly recommend it. Be it from social media, the phone and emails or just from the daily hustle and grind – it all adds up and sometimes it’s nice to just recharge and breathe.

I spent May doing just that. I’m refocused, energized and have realigned my vision, got a few projects really rockin’ and rollin’ and most importantly, I’m the fittest I’ve ever been.
I find that I have more energy than ever! I’m waking up with the sun every day, going for a jog with Dar or doing some yoga in my living room and then heading in to either volunteer at Ronald McDonald House or down to INLIV to work with an all-star personal training team to inspire some amazing lives! I even bike almost 200 kilometres every week for fun!
I can’t say it was all me. I owe a lot of it to resetting my mindset and that only really started to kick in about 6 months ago when I started getting coached through the same system I teach my coaching clients, Precision Nutrition’s Pro-Coach.

Between volunteering, creating, coaching, catching live music events around town, hosting two shows; one on TV and the other, my very own radio show (now available on iTunes!), entertaining (or more like being entertained by) my pup Darwin, it seems like there should be a lot fewer hours in my day, right? It’s all in how you manage your time, I s’pose.
I’ve attached some links for you to take a peek at some of the things I’ve been up to. I hope you enjoy it, share it and remember the next time you’re feeling overwhelmed, burnt out or out of control – take a step back and breathe. Reach out if you would like some help or even just an ear to vent to.


Check out the TV show I host, SoundScape YYCTanner James plays some tunes, talks about the upcoming release of his debut novel and chats with me about the changing landscape of Calgary’s music scene and how he’s thriving as an artist in the wake of the gunslingers and oil barons of the wild, wild west. It’s a real doozy. Tune in.


The first episode is out! Be sure to tune in on that commute to work or over lunch break for your hour-long dose of local music-fused with real discussion on proactive healthcare for musicians and music lovers. Chalked full of value, this episode includes the first part of a new gender series “What Is A Man” I’m unrolling this month, some great local artists including Jo-Jo O’ and the Woods and The Heirlooms and tips and tricks to help keep you moving and feeling great! Check it out below.

Thanks for reading, until next time… stay sweet!



I’m holding an open request for submissions for all musicians and music industry professionals interested in bettering their lifestyle, or at least reading about it.

Basically I’m looking for an honest review, unbiased and constructive on my upcoming book – ” The Musicians Guide to Surviving the Rock Star Lifestyle” (available for pre-order here) from my immediate circle of influence. You know? People that don’t know me and won’t just say what I want to hear. I want to have a critical review from leaders in the industry; musicians, songwriters, producers, stage hands, tour managers, label reps… the works. Everyone who is anyone in the business that wants to know how to better themselves in the ways of movement, nutrition and mindset to elevate their performance.

Why? Well, this book is a passion project for me. I’m aiming to better the lifestyle of my fellow industry professionals and weekend warriors alike. If we can bring some general awareness towards the importance of health and how it relates to elite performance on and off-stage, I will be able to help more people that need my specific attention. We are trying to spearhead a health movement in an industry that has a reputation for exactly the opposite. You can be a part of this and help to remove that stigma. 

For anyone that provides a review I will gladly offer $100 worth of my services exercise or nutrition and provide you with a copy of the finished product.

This is bigger than you and me, people. Let’s help make you the best version of yourself.
