    BITESIZE #43 | Zack George: Gaining confidence from being healthy & happy within yourself

    BITESIZE #43 | Zack George: Gaining confidence from being healthy & happy within yourself

    Zack George, one of the world’s top CrossFit athletes, and UK’s Fittest Man 2020 joined in S4 with an incredible story of dramatic change, resilience and hard work. As a child and early teenager, Zack was severely overweight and deeply unhappy in his body. It was his father’s offer of a Playstation to lose some weight that became the catalyst for change in Zack’s life. 


    The biggest learning Zack wanted to pass on was the confidence he got from being healthy and happy, something that far outweighed any external award. 


    Listen to the full episode with Zack on the power of internal motivation: https://pod.fo/e/c4547

LORD ORLAN ,

High Performance Podcast, mind set is key to the journey.

I came across the podcast purely by chance and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve totally enjoyed listening to entrepreneurs, Athletes, Actors and everyday people tell their stories on how high performance is key to their drive, ambition and self development.
I’ve loved every episode and have started learning more about myself than I have over the last 63 years of my life.

You have to share this with your friends and family it’s a life changing podcast.

Hands Down One of my Top Podcasts

I love this podcast. It’s introduced me to tons of athletes, business professionals and more people I’ve never heard of. And I’ve taken away more lessons than I can count to apply to my own life. I’d recommend a listen to anyone who wants to take a step forward and grow in any area of their life.

High performance Team

A job well done, I loved how you not only covered athletes in the sporting industry but you expanded to other sectors internationally.

God bless you and keep on the good work.
