Great discussion and really enjoyed the listen.

I really enjoy all the content that Nick puts out on social media but I really enjoy the podcast a lot and the guests he brings on.

Portil10 ,

Great podcast

Great podcast!!

Roger0115 ,

Great listen while working out / training.

Love listening to this podcast while I’m getting my strength training workout in. Nick Bare and his guests not only bring inspiring lessons about training but about improving life and the way you think. This goes for thinking and planning ahead with life at home or at work. There are times I come out after listening “I can do this better or I need to change the way I’m doing this at home”.
