This show will give you everything you need for you and your doctor to have meaningful conversations. And, frankly, some of these conversations might just save your life.

    Cancer Screening: The Old Way vs. the New Way

    Recently on the podcast, Jen and I talked about perhaps one of the most frightening health-related topics on the planet: cancer. Cancer is the number two killer of human beings, second only to heart disease. In fact, approximately every minute someone in the United States dies from cancer.

    Don’t Sleep on Sleep

    Don’t Sleep on Sleep

    All science and research tell us that we must sleep. Without it, we die. It’s just as essential as water, food, and oxygen.

    So why is it so easy for modern humans to neglect this critical part of our health? Why is it so undervalued and taken for granted?

    As healthcare practitioners, Jen Justus and I have seen firsthand how devastating the effects of sleep deprivation can be. While we love to talk about positive momentum multipliers like strength training, we also need to discuss how poor quality sleep perpetuates profoundly negative momentum in people’s lives.

    So buckle up, because this episode will illuminate once and for all why you can no longer afford to sleep on sleep.

    The Magic of Doing Difficult Things

    The Magic of Doing Difficult Things

    In this month’s podcast, I exchange stories and wisdom with the one and only Jen Justus. We discuss not only our personal experiences with strength training but also the feeling of magic we get in doing difficult things.

    In many ways, it really is like magic. You suffer through a grueling physical challenge that pushes you to your limit and, voilà, like a magician pulling the rabbit from a hat, you experience optimized physical and cognitive strength for the rest of the day and sleep better at night.

    Freedom in Discipline: Why Dieting Is Not the Answer

    Freedom in Discipline: Why Dieting Is Not the Answer

    For this month’s podcast, the always-brilliant Jen Justus joined me to discuss weight loss and why dieting is not the answer. Among other things, we agreed that weight loss is usually temporary when achieved through dieting.

    Intermittent fasting, on the other hand, produces both short-term and long-term benefits by sustainably applying discipline in the right areas.

A Whole New World

Although the concept is not new to me the info and implementation will be. I’m excited give it a try and follow any results and sharing these with others.

I do have a question. If I ask a client to come to our workout training session fasted, how do I gently push them even though they may be experiencing fatigue, lightheadedness, or nausea due to fasting?

Very informative!

Exactly what I needed for where I’m at right now.

How to Not over think this - Wow!

These two guys know their stuff! Listen to this in a focused manner - no multitasking with this. Don’t get lost in the details, the summary at the end is pure gold.

The When we eat is so much more important than What healthy food choices we make.

I have been using Intermittent Fasting for nine months and doing great. These guys have shown me that I have so much more to gain by simply making some minor adjustments. I am super excited!!
