    This is episode 108, I'm Coach Darrell, and today we're talking about why people have such a hard time changing their bodies, feeling better, and getting healthier - and how to finally succeed. And STAY succeeding.

     
    In this episode we catch up with Coach Darrell after his unexpectedly long hiatus, and learn about his Health Coach Certification. Then we expand on what exactly he learned - what "health" and "wellness" really are, and why a holistic approach is a better path to improved health.

    Holidays don't have to nuke our fitness. It seems to be the case that every year, despite our best efforts, our fitness and nutrition efforts go in the crapper during the holidays. There are plenty of reasons why it happens, and it seems as a society we've accepted it as inevitable. Maybe that's why fitness and weight loss related New Year's Resolutions are so popular. But... what if it didn't have to be so hard to succeed through the holidays? Wouldn't it be nice to make it to New Year's Day having not only enjoyed the holidays (and the food)... AND having made progress toward your fitness goals?!
    On this episode (103) Coach Darrell shares a little bit about the coming winter weather, how it might affect your fitness, and how to adjust for it. He also shares some interesting news about a hot new fitness device and whether or not it can replace your coach. Then, he dives deep into the holiday season, sharing the ways in which it usually derails our fitness efforts. Finally - he shares a TON of guidance to help you succeed, rather than fail, this holiday season - you CAN have it all, and Coach Darrell will tell you how.

Information, fun and uplifting

A voice of reason cutting through all the noise

Great podcast - kind of like sitting around and chatting with a friend who knows a quite a bit more than you about all things fitness. “Oh, I heard about this thing in a Facebook group called XYZ.” Darrell: “Yeah, that’s a terrible idea, here’s why, and here’s something that you actually can do instead.” Solid advice. No gimmicks. Just chats about the fight for fitness in the real world.

Honest and Real

Darrell has lost weight, kept it off, and became a trainer. He still struggles and he doesn't hide it. This real life, honest approach makes the show compelling every week. We love when Megan can join him, too. The training insights and advice are great. Take a listen!
