I get a lot of questions about the supplements I recommend, my camera, software and other tools I regularly use. To make it easier for both you and me, I decided to put it all together on this page divided by category so you can click on the ones you’re interested in. By doing so, people interested in running don’t have to go through my camera equipment and vice versa.
Remember that more stuff won’t make your life better; although, the right tools can help you take your life to the next level. Please don’t spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they’ll help you achieve your specific and well considered goals.

One of the most important lessons I learned during my psychology studies was that people are awful at making rational conclusions. The brain tricks us in all kind of ways and that’s why studies has shown that people under- or overestimate what they eat with over 30%. Therefore, I highly recommend everyone to use objective data. Sure, there’s a margin of error but it’s still better than any estimation.
I do all my weight training in my home gym. It saves time, I get the equipment for myself and it’s possible to build a pretty decent home gym that will last a lifetime based on a few gym membership fees. My local gym costs $790 a year and assuming a home gym lasts longer than 30 years, I’m sure you can build a decent one for $23700. However, I’ve managed to put together one for under $300.
I love football but I was never a big fan of running during my youth. It changed after my knee injuries when I purchased a running watch with GPS and pulse tracking. The joy of being able to analyze every run gave me motivation to continue running and I discovered the health benefits such as more energy and better mood. Since then I’ve participated in several competitions and I’m looking forward to the next one.
The supplement market is a jungle today and it can be difficult to not only find scientifically proven supplements but also figure out exactly what you’ll benefit from. To make it easier for you, I’ve listed recommended supplements proven by science with a description of whom it benefits and a short note on which product I’m currently using. Don’t take a supplement just because someone else does.
I’d argue that the most important part of creating a healthy lifestyle is to find your passion for cooking. Sure, you could hire a personal chef and I’d probably do it in a heartbeat if I had the money but it’s the passion and knowledge that makes it possible to create simple and healthy meals. Learn to handle a proper chef’s knife and avoid all the plastic equipment that end up taking space and time to clean.
Photography is a big interest of mine and I always try to use my own photos when writing blog posts. Not only to keep the expenses down but also because I find it more genuin to avoid stock images you’ve already seen on every other fitness site. If you’re truly interested in photography, I’d recommend you to take a course. It helps to have great equipment but you can do amazing things with less.
Although my headset is good enough for causal online conversations, I quickly realized I needed an upgrade for a potential podcast. After much reading, I managed to put together an affordable package I can grow with without having to go into debt to purchase it. However, I’m also mentioning some free software if you’re considering starting a podcast but don’t want to spend too much money before deciding.
The average American spends 4-5 hours a day watching TV, countless of minutes on social media and procrastinates more than ever. It’s all about priorities but it’s difficult to change your habits if you’re not aware of them. In this category you’ll find the tool I use to identify time wasters and the resources you can use to change your habits to become more productive and thereby accomplish your goals.
