What’s your name, blog name, and how did you create your blog title?

My name is Marc Pogorzelski. My blog title came actually quite easy – it’s just the name of my training studio, Upper Echelon. The thought being that we want to try and reach our upper echelon; regardless of the training modality.

How would you describe your blogging style?

My blogging style is trying to breakdown scientific information into practical information. This is easier said then done. When I was in Grad school, using big, fancy words was required. Not so much in everyday speak. People want to know 1. what do I need to do and 2. how do I need to do it. It’s my job to break that down.

What is your blog tagline?

“You’re stronger than you think.” It’s the tagline for our studio (which is also co-owned by my wife). So many people often underestimate what they are capable of. Pushing yourself is a skill, and sometimes people need others to give them that push so they can see what they can really achieve.

What is your healthy eating philosophy?

Everything works just not forever. Your body is designed to adapt to what you feed it. So if you choose to follow a label, you’re eventually going to miss out on some sort of key aspect of nutrition.

What daily health to-do is easiest for you to complete? Which is the one you struggle with every single day?

I’ve never really had an issue getting a workout in. Now, that doesn’t mean I’m always doing cartwheels leading up to my workout, but motivation has never been an issue. With a little one, trying to get everyone to bed on time has been a struggle. We don’t stay up late but getting to bed 30-60 minutes earlier would do wonders.
