I was featured on the Evernote blog yesterday, and I couldn´t be happier! 

Due to different time zones, yesterday morning (Spanish time) I announced the new feature, my  way. In the afternoon, I read the Evernote blog and there I was!

I am very honored that they have had me on the blog to present this new feature that will make your lives much easier since you create your account: “Templates”. Evernote, a new way of working, more productive, more efficient and now, much more comfortable thanks to this new feature.
That a company with 225 million users around the world counts on me to present the star feature of the latest version, makes me feel … how would I say? … Like a million dollars!!

Next, you can read the official presentation of the new feature. Enjoy the templates!

Blog Anniversary

It´s my Blog´s Anniversary!

Hurrah!!! Hahaha! Let’s make it memorable, or at least special.

I would like this to serve as an encouragement to all the new bloggers out there and to send them a clear message: dreams come true with hard work and determination. Things don’t happen overnight, they take time, sweat, tears, and a little bit of luck.

As WordPress consider an anniversary as an achievement, which it true itself, I’ve accomplished a few things over these four past years. Let´s recap, just to encourage you to follow your dreams and beyond because I never expected to reach any of the milestones when I started this blog.

 

List of impossible dreams come true:

2014: Stanza/Nike partner. After a long interview with the founders, they invited me to join their calendar and collaborate in the Nike Training app. This was mind-blowing, but only the beginning of a long and amazing journey.

2015: Fitfluential.com accepted me as Ambassador. Becoming part of a community of coaches and fitness influencers with so many followers, was not easy. It was a rush!

2016: I joined the Jordan Breakfast Club. I´m a die-hard basketball fan, and I grew up watching MJ and the Chicago Bulls. An exhaustive interview with the Senior Director, Global Brand Marketing was an unforgettable experience for me. That they also consult my opinion before launching each new online challenge, is something that fills me with pride and satisfaction.

2017: Evernote Community Leader. This is what I was looking for! Because I use Evernote to help people over the world reach their fitness goals, this was the kind of recognition I needed to take my game to the next level.

2018: Top 100 Fitness Blogs on the planet. Last time I checked it on Google, there were 113 million fitness blogs. #73 is not bad, isn´t it? This caused a small local/national revolution and I got interviewed on TV, radio, and newspapers.

For what I had come:

Since I stumbled upon Evernote, I realized that it was a wonderful tool for personal trainers. And I put all my effort into developing the perfect environment for online training. I must respect the privacy and wishes of my clients, but some have been so kind to let me share with you all their experiences and achievements.

Nothing compares to the feeling when a client achieves his/her goals. It’s happiness, pride, satisfaction… all stirred up like a cocktail! 

What comes now:

You may have noticed that this summer I have written less than usual. I have been working on new articles that I hope you like, thinking about new services to offer and, above all, writing a course on how to use Evernote for fitness, which will be aimed at fitness professionals, studios, and gyms. I can tell you that the guys at Evernote are very excited about this and the course will see the light next month. This course will be a game-changer!

THANKS!

To my family for their unconditional love and support all these years.

To you, for your friendship and support, also unconditional during all this time.

To my wonderful clients, for following my advice, reaching their goals and recommending me to their friends.

None of this would have been possible without all of you!

News and projects

I want to thank you for your patience because, if you remember, last month I had to publish less than usual due to some family problems and other professional projects that had arisen.

Today I am happy to tell you that my mother is totally recovered from her surgery (thank you all for your prayers). I would like to share a picture of my mother, but she is one of those people who do not like to be photographed.

On the other hand, the projects are taking shape, and about that I can share some photos.

I had been offered a tv show on a local network and yesterday we recorded the pilot.

While they prepared the lights and the equipment, I took pictures as a child visiting the zoo.

I had fun. I had to repeat a few things several times, but I was less nervous than I expected. 

I surprised myself by being able to do the exercises without throwing the microphone to the ground.

The most pleasant and strange thing, at the same time, was having a team of people sharing the work: camera operator, editor, producer and me.

For the pilot, and to bring me luck, I chose one of the t-shirts that Glenda gave me. Hopefully, we will be working all summer and the show will be broadcast in October.

My other great project (still secret) is meeting deadlines and I will show you in a few weeks.

Stay tuned.

Light month

Hello, dears.

Last week my mother underwent surgery and I was with her all week in the hospital. Everything went well but, as you will understand, she will need my help the next few weeks.

Also, since I appeared in the media, I have many new clients and a couple of big projects came up. So, I will need the next couple of weeks to reschedule and organize. This means that I will post just once per week this month until I get everything in place.

Best,

David

The media week

Hello, dears!

Have you missed me? I´ve missed you a lot!

Since I got the honor to be included in the Top 100 fitness blogs, things have gone crazy. I’ve been interviewed on TV and the radio this week and messages and emails keep coming. So, I want to apologize for being missing in action this week. Hopefully, everything will go back to normal next week, or i will adjust to the new “normal” next week, and I will be able to read your post as I was used to. 

Also, I want to thank you for your patience and support, none of this would be possible without you!

I know you probably won´t understand a word of Galician (it´s similar to Portuguese), but I want to share the TV interview anyway, haha! 

Have a great weekend!

I´m going to enjoy some rest…

well deserved rest, I think.
