Christmas Gifts for an Active Family

We are getting close to Christmas….. like, reallllll close. It can be hard to know what to get for the active family, or the family that is trying to bump down the grasps of technology and do more outside. This is a short list of the Game Changers in our family, including for my nephews […]

Dys- Functional Training

I took over the Haka Instagram account last week. I held out for a long time. But it is clear that Instagram can be a great vehicle for sharing our message and giving people real information about health and fitness. Oh, how it pains me to say that… Clearly, we need to have some discussion […]

Say Good-bye to Stroller Woes

Many professionals in my field of Human Movement frown upon using strollers with kids. They point out that while you exercise, you encourage your kids to sit… and in the worst possible position imaginable, too. I get all of that. But I would argue that losing my sanity would be far more detrimental to my […]

Exercise is a hot topic. You can read silly articles in SHAPE magazine or watch ridiculous videos on YouTube of flashy moves that are two parts impressive and two parts death defying. Let me be very clear that incorporating exercise in your life does not have to be difficult, impressive, OR death defying to be […]

Foundations of Health

The Butterfly Effect, an idea within chaos theory, states that a tiny difference in the initial state of a physical system can make a significant difference to the system at some later point. In other words, the smallest shift extrapolated out ultimately creates a trajectory with a very different endpoint. This idea proves true in […]

Haka Strength Series…

The Haka Strength Series is upon us. We are squat deep in the most recent programming and it feels good! Rolling out the Strength Series has been a bit of a change. For some, it’s awesome! Others, though, are a bit skeptical and wary of the change. Strength can be intimidating, no doubt about it, […]

We launched the Tribal Life Transformation a few weeks ago here at Haka Fitness. 85 people jumped on board ready to change their lives, ready to make some REAL Transformation!
