There’s a reason why you feel beaten down, burnt out, and bored with your training. You are a unique individual. If you follow training and nutrition protocols designed for someone who doesn’t have your physiology and psychology — it’s a matter of time before you flatline.
It’s much sexier to put a flag into the floor and say, “Everyone is going to follow THIS type of training because it’s the MOST effective way.” But it’s also ignorant because each individual is so different. We all have different wants, needs, desires, fears, obstacles, barriers, and the list goes on.
If you’re at a stage where you want to see: what would happen if I tinkered with my limitations? What would happen if I addressed the “little” variables that are not so little? If I treated myself as a unique human — not an avatar. What would the journey look and feel like?
Shoot me an email (email@example.com) if you want to hop on a quick call to start some dialogue around your fitness journey. At the very least, my goal is to help you walk away feeling a little more connected to your fitness.
Exactly one year ago, I had contemplated starting the podcast. I tried kicking the thought out of my head for a while because I didn’t think I was ready.
Within two weeks, I dove in and recorded my first 3 episodes. Scared to death. No one listened for quite a while.
To think about what it’s become purely from you all listening and being badass fans — I’m honored.
I also have an exciting announcement to make. All I wanted in my heart when I first started personal training at 18 years old was to make a living out of fitness delivery. I wanted to be a fitness professional. Not a hobbyist. Not a side hustle. A professional. I saw very few people who were able to that.
I’m honored to say that I’m now a Revival Strength Coach. Marcus has given me a platform where I can do exactly that. And I have a deep urge to share that feeling and share information with those who are on this path.
Words can’t wrap the emotion I feel around this topic. Because you are doing meaningful, commendable, and admirable work to truly impact people’s lives. And you deserve to be able to make a living from this type of work. Long story short, if you’re a fitness professional (or one in the making), you’ll want to listen to this episode.
Thanks for giving me a platform where I can keep creating a body of work. Talking about things that matter, ideas that work, and dialogue that delivers. This episode is a thank you and a direct dialogue to those of you who support my art by listening to the show.
One of the most common patterns from guests who have been on the show is the recommendation of finding a mindfulness practice. Something that allows you to give your brain a bath. It doesn’t always have to be a specific breathing protocol or style of meditation. Especially if you’re just getting your feet wet. The reality is that sitting down for 5 minutes to sit in the silence with your own thoughts can seem impossible at first. There’s a practice that I believe is often overlooked when we talk about mindfulness in this context. Anyone can do it. And it’s the perfect way to hit the reset button so you can go out and kick ass.
