Not just a fitness podcast

Brian is my hands-down favourite podcast host. Massively varied content with the same driving force behind it, plenty mindset without ever feeling it’s going over my head. He’s really changed my view towards who i follow on socials, and why. Great guests, loves a quote (I too, now love a quote) fast talking, Irish...absolute winner with me!

Game Changer

Not only to I love Brian’s message and approach to training, nutrition and mindset he’s also introduced me to other great podcasts, writers and speakers. This podcast has changed my outlook on my on training and how I train clients. Best podcast in my library!

Nbefit ,

Upbeat, factual, funny and full of fitness and mindset gems

Brian’s podcasts are a must for all gym goers, fitness and endurance athletes alike (I actually listened to his podcast on running through the Arctic when I ran my 1st Marathon (London) this year. It certainly helped me keep perspective! Guaranteed you’ll be hooked (in a good way) after just one episode! Plus he has amazing guests on, so if you love listening to podcasts you’ll be able to consume their content too. Have learnt so much since I started listening that has helped me improve as a Personal Trainer.
The power of the mind has no limits...and Brian has trained his relentlessly to achieve some truly spectacular goals. Thank you for leading the way by inspiring people (like me) who are looking to help empower people to be the best version of themselves 🙌🏻 #BKF
