Important Announcement (Personal…)

I know I’ve been off the blog for a little while.

I had the 2.0 launch (thanks to all of you who grabbed your copy – hope you’re enjoying it) and then needed to take some down time because the launch coincided with two weekends of travel.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for your support over the last couple of years.

I have some big, important news I wanted to share with you. I’ve been sitting on it for awhile now.

Here it is:

I’m going to be a Dad!

Very cool to me!

The little one is due in April. We’ll find out on the 22nd if it’s a boy or a girl (if it cooperates).

So needless to say, I’m pretty psyched.

Of course, as those of you who are parents know, this will change everything.

I’m not quite ready for that yet, but fortunately, I’ve got a couple of months left… 🙂

Anyway, I’ll be back to my regular blog posting next week.

Have a great weekend.

Talk then.

  • Doug Nov 12, 2010 @ 12:40


    you’re right everything changes for the better. we had our little girl just 3 months after my RKC.

    master o’connor’s advice to practice “x” when you have “y” time really made sense the 1st few months of sleeping in 3o min spurts.

    God bless you and your wife. we’ll keep you in our prayers.

    Congrats to you and your wife Geoff. The titles “teacher” and “coach” take on new and deeper meaning when you have a little one. To be in the room and watch your child be born is an amazing experience.

    That’s outstanding news! Love your work. I have a 5 year old boy and an 8 year old girl myself. These two are gym bosses! I’m sure yours will be as well. Congrats and all the best!

  • Steve Nov 12, 2010 @ 20:47

    Thats great Geoff

    I have 4 kids and love every minute of it (Almost :))

    They are 1 of my main motivators, i want them to grow up having good habits and making healthy informed choices. They look for their parents and will copy our behaviours and habits too. they push me constantly to keep on track.

    You’ll love the new dimension and focus they bring to your training!

    BTW Burn 2.0 is awesome.

  • Anna Nov 12, 2010 @ 22:31

    Congratulations! My twin girls are due March/April so I know how it feels. Some days I realize I’m going to be a dad soon and it feels like I just learned I’m going to be president.

  • Tamás Szabó Nov 14, 2010 @ 8:13

    Dear Geoff,
    Congratulation. This is the best thing in the entire life, being a parent. Surely you’ll be ready when it’s needed.
