Amaro podcast

Can I give MORE than 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️?? Loved this one!

howdy2222 ,

Amazing!!!!

These podcasts have helped me out a lot as an athlete. I have been in a slump recently and have been struggling with how to maintain my mental toughness in order to persevere and be successful. Listening I have learned how to trust myself and control my way of thinking. Dr Rob has a way of putting things into perspective and opening up questions about yourself. I have taken a lot of what he has said and implemented it into my daily life.

Run4good ,

Always something good!!

I LOVE listening to this podcast. It is interesting to hear the hinge moments of incredible people who have accomplished and overcome extraordinary things. Dr. Rob has a gift for getting to the core of his guests and through that he reveals truths that can be taken away and applied to everyday life and beyond.
