    037: Happy Thanksgiving! Not Your Average Gratitude Practice

Be sure to head to EnlightenedAthlete.com to learn more about our upcoming Get Uncomfortable Protocol Coaching program to kick off the new year with a bang!

    Since this is a time of giving thanks I was thinking about gratitude and how the practice has been so popularized as of late, but not in the most effective way. I think we need to learn to have gratitude for the difficult parts of our lives and be grateful for the people we've become due to those situations.

    I leaned on some stoic philosophy as well as the 4 noble truths from Buddhism to illustrate this point. I hope you enjoy the episode!

    Zach runs his Underground Strength Gyms, The STRONG life podcast, the blog on his website where he has put out more information on training, business, and life than I'll forget over my life.

    He also has a multitude of training programs and online groups you can be a part of to level up your training.

    032: Zach Brooks | Losing 140lbs., How It Changed His Role As A Father and Husband & Making Health A Lifestyle

    If you like this episode share it with someone else! You have no idea how much I appreciate that and how much it helps us get the word out! Thank you for listening!

    Zach & I have been friends for almost 20 years now and he is a salt of the earth guy. He will drop anything to help a friend and one of the funniest people I have ever met (which you'll hear in this episode).

    He came to me needing help with weight loss and improving his health. He was tired all the time, sick with digestive issues & more. 

    He ended up changing not only his, but his entire family's lifestyle and overall health by implementing sound & sustainable behaviors to make it easy to consistently do.

    I hope Zach's journey and experience is one that you can draw inspiration from and learn how to change your life for the better as well.

    Now go out and GET UNCOMFORTABLE!
