Get Fit.  Get Geeky.


New to Sleek Geek, fitness, or just want a helping hand getting started? No worries, just follow along with us! We’ll walk you through the basics before we hand over the keys and let you drive.

Lost in translation?  We sometimes use abbreviations, acronyms and scientific jargon, but have no fear.  Our glossary is here to help!


Getting Geeky: Numbers Don’t Lie


What makes us geeky?  We’re math nerds, scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs.  We love numbers and we love using them to get what we want.  The good news is that you don’t have to know anything about math to get the most out of this site.  We do the work for you.  You’ll learn some basics while you go through the process, but even the most mathematically disinclined will receive the full value of our work.  ”Getting Geeky: Numbers Don’t Lie!” is a great introduction to the metrics and charts we use to track progress and stay motivated.

The Maxims: Rules To Live By


A maxim is a saying, a proverb, or a guiding rule.  We’ve got a simple list of no-nonsense guidelines for you to follow that will ensure you stay on the right path.

Maxim 1:  The best fix for poor compliance is good compliance.

Maxim 2: Know your stress triggers and kryptonite foods.

Maxim 3: You’re the only person who can truly catch yourself in a lie.

We have an entire archive of maxims to keep you on-target.  Refer back to these any time you need an honest kick in the rear.
