"Why is this podcast necessary? As a personal trainer in a gym that saw 1800+ clients every day, I can honestly tell you at least 85% of everyone working out has absolutely no idea what they area doing.

If you are new or getting back into fitness training, where you are going to be working out could be one of the most influential decisions you have to make when plotting your fitness plan.

Your first week goes by, you workout there, and you realise how crowded it is, and you are instantly not feeling the vibe. You stop going and don’t even finish your first month. Now you are locked in to that dreaded “CONTRACT” at a place that you can’t stand going to. Conversely, lets say you decide that you are going to workout at home. You go all in and buy the Yoga Mat, Yoga Ball, a few Kettlebells etc. First week goes by, and you are rocking with four workouts on the books! Second week comes,and you are a little tired from work and the addition of this new exercise thing you have been trying so vigilantly to do 3-4x a week. Then, tired as heck after a long day at work in your third […]
