Hi! I’m Evan Arbour - the author of something is better than nothing.
I created this newsletter to help you understand the basics of strength training and nutrition so you can live a stronger life without restriction. I’ve been a personal trainer for almost a decade and the guidance I give my clients the most is: something is better than nothing. Every small action adds up.
This newsletter is based on building fundamental knowledge behind strength training and nutrition so you have the confidence to go after your goals on your terms.
No amount of targeted ads, “miracle product” promises, before/after posts from that celebrity trainer can pull you off track when you are armed with the facts. And that is truly the best feeling.
If this is your first time here - welcome! I am so excited for you to start your journey and I can’t wait to see your progress.
