Pain Science and Bridging the Gap Between Muscle Therapies with Sam Visnic
Sam Visnic believes staying on the cutting edge is the key to FASTER results. Learning new techniques, research, & integrating the best approaches to both clinical massage therapy and movement re-education are essential to understanding pain.
Sam is the founder of Release Muscle Therapy, where he provides pain relief through clinical massage and movement. He is also the owner of the Visnic Center For Integrated Health, whose focus is “on assisting clients with achieving the highest levels of health and vitality through an integrated approach.”
Sam began his career as a personal trainer at 19 during the fitness boom of the 1980s. He quickly found his niche in corrective exercise and decided to become a massage therapist subspecializing in neuromuscular therapist.
He describes the trajectory of his career and his expertise in his field as ever-evolving as knowledge about the human body expands over time. He quips, “What happens is, the more you learn in this field, the more challenging your clients get.”
Sam explains how his approach progressed in the past two decades, from an initial perspective that was purely mechanistic in its view of the body to one that is entirely holistic—known as the Biopsychosocial model of pain assessment and treatment. His open-mindedness and relentless drive to learn as much as he can earned Sam the reputation of being the go-to guy for difficult cases among his peers.
Listen in as Sam shares why developing the ability to build rapport with clients can be a game-changer for anyone in his field, why hypnotherapy is “the next thing”, how your brain controls how you feel pain independent from what’s actually happening to your body, and how to rewire your mind to dismantle unproductive beliefs.

Scientific Ways to Beat Burnout, Boost Energy, Reclaim Your Life and Stop Being So Effing Tired with Dr. Amy Shah, MD
Dr. Amy Shah is an allergist and immunologist at Valley ENT as well as a speaker and consultant on health and mindset. In March 2021, she published her first book, I'm So Effing Tired: A Proven Plan to Beat Burnout, Boost Your Energy and Reclaim Your Life.
Shortly after starting her wellness practice, Dr. Shah was named one of mindbodygreen's Top 100 Women In Wellness to Watch in 2015. Clinically, she was named in Phoenix Top Doctors magazine in 2017, 2018, and 2019.
We kick off the conversation with the personal experiences that led Dr. Shah to learn all she could about burnout and, later on, offer guidance to others who are suffering through it. She was inspired to do her part in changing the mainstream perception of burnout as a “badge of honor” and steer people away from the glorification of “the grind”.
Listen in as Dr. Shah goes on to discuss the hidden dangers of supplements; why cases of burnout have drastically risen over the past year; the benefits of “circadian fasting”; and how optimizing your gut health, immune health, and hormone health can supercharge your energy levels no matter your age.

Perform, Adapt, Evolve - The Three Pillars of Human Optimization with Jeff Byers
How do we not just train harder, but also maximize everything around it including the mind, body, and soul? This is the question that drives Jeff Byers, a former NFL player and the current CEO of Amp Human, which offers innovative products that help athletes push the limits on their performance, adaptation, and recovery.
With an interest in both sports and entrepreneurship from an early age, Jeff always harbored an interest in finding creative ways to push his boundaries for growth as a human. “I was always thinking about the little things I could do to get better,” he says. “I tried to use my brain to work smarter than always just work harder.”
After retiring from the NFL, Jeff worked for a few years in the finance space before joining an early-stage biotech startup in late 2015. This company had discovered a way to deliver pharmaceuticals through the skin, bypassing the GI system which often limits the body’s ability to optimally absorb vitamins and minerals taken orally.
Not long after joining the company, Jeff and one of his partners developed a broad vision for a business offering products specifically formulated to optimize human performance, a space in which they saw, at the time, a huge gap in the market.
Listen in as Jeff talks all things human performance and optimization and why he refers to it as a “broad spectrum”. He also discusses the benefits of Amp Human’s flagship product, PR Lotion, and its newly released D+ Lotion.

Since supplements are only supplementary to your nutrition, what should people really be focusing on to get the most ROI on their training when it comes to their nutrition? What supplements should be top priority for someone who is already following a healthy diet? How can you know for sure if you’re really getting what it says on the label? What should you be looking for in a protein powder? What does “naturally sweetened and flavored” actually mean? Mike explains what makes his superfood supplement, Genesis, different from all the rest.

Getting Out of the Perfectionist Mindset to Become a Better Entrepreneur with Chris Bello
Chris Bello is a Houston-based real estate agent and investor and the host of the Entrepreneur Motivation Podcast.
His journey from employee to entrepreneur is a familiar one to many who have been, or currently are, in his shoes. The Texas native followed his friends and family into the oil and gas industry right out of college for no other reason than that’s what everybody else in his circle did.
Right away, Chris realized that he was on the wrong path. He recalls asking himself, “What could there be for me outside of the cubicle?” He began reading books such as Rich Dad Poor Dad and The 4-Hour Workweek. Bit by bit, an inspiring new vision for the future was taking shape in his mind.
“I didn’t put all the pieces together,” Chris recalls of that time, “but the questions started being asked in my mind.”
Chris finally quit his job in 2018 to dive into the world of entrepreneurship and self-development, and hasn’t looked back since.
Listen in as Chris shares the practical steps he took to create freedom in his life, including how he set up systems and processes appropriate to his work and lifestyle, the value of the phrase “fail fast, fail often”, why you don’t have to have the “perfect” plan to start right now, and what it means to embrace your zone of genius while encouraging your team to embrace theirs.

How do you stop yourself from falling into the perfectionist mindset while being able to gauge whether you’re making progress? How do you make sure you have the right team in place and that you’re cultivating a supportive work environment?

Improving Metabolic Health and Potential Indicators That Your Blood Sugar Levels Are a Problem with Dr. Casey Means
Dr. Casey Means, MD is the Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer at Levels, a metabolic health company that provides individuals “real-time continuous glucose biofeedback coupled with machine-learning driven insights to inform personalized diet and lifestyle choices.”
Glucose, unlike other biomarkers, provides us a closed biofeedback loop which if tracked helps us make better diet and lifestyle choices on the fly. Other biomarkers, such as genetics or cholesterol, do not provide that real-time information which means we cannot track changes around them based on our nutritional and lifestyle choices on a day-to-day basis.
“The beauty of glucose,” says Dr. Means, “is that there are tools, right now, that can measure our glucose levels in real-time, at home, with a wearable sensor. Unlike these other variables, we can actually see how this biomarker is changing based on choices that we made five minutes ago.”
For several years, glucose monitors have been available as a treatment tool for diabetes. What Levels has done is take this technology to the mass consumer market to be used as a precision nutrition tool.
Listen in as Dr. Means explains how Levels translates real-time insights around your blood glucose into actionable steps that you can use to improve your metabolic health today.

Why did Dr. Means decide to focus on metabolic health specifically in helping people improve their diet and lifestyle choices? Why should someone who is not diabetic or prediabetic be concerned about monitoring their glucose? What are the “reps” we need to put into improving our metabolic fitness? What are the indicators of potential blood sugar problems?

One of the BEST podcasts out there.
This podcast is a 360 on health, fitness, relationships, entrepreneurship and reaching your maximum potential in all those areas and more. Chase explores and seeks to better understand why we do the things we do via human psyche. Every guest I’ve listened to so far has been extraordinary. Chase’s questions and commentary with guests is well thought out.
A memorable recent episode is #389 on the Healing Power of Human Interaction.
Never thought that my lack of motivation or energy at times could be due to lack of consistent positive human interaction. No matter how well I ate or exercised, you wonder why you feel “off”, angry or just a little sad. I never even considered it bc im not super social and very much an introvert so I need very very little of it. This became a conscious thought after listening to the the ep. Being proactive with this and incorporating social activities every so often like a vitamin is a necessity.
My best friend who is away at pharmacy school was telling me how much she missed social interaction and having a hard time having some since all her classes are virtual. She’s fairly social and this was affecting her happiness and mental health quite a bit. We both severely underestimated the healing power positive social interactions, a hug, etc have.
A 10/10 must listen podcast!
For me, this is one of my all time favorite podcast! Chase's conversation with his guests were always insightful with lots of contents. He is full of enegery and has such a good heart! each episode packed with valuable information. Definity recomend this to anyone who is aiming for a better life style.
Great podcast talking about building your leadership skills and improving other’s lives through your passion with fitness and work.
