In this episode I interview Nick, who’s 40 years old and recently completed my 90-day coaching service.
In this interview we talk about how he found his way to me and my work, including what he had tried previously, how things changed after he started implementing the advice in my books and articles, and how my 90-day coaching service helped him lose 19 pounds, 11% body fat, and 6 inches off of his waist, while also maintaining his strength on all of his big lifts.
As with everything, nothing ever goes exactly as planned, and learning to adjust and adapt to conditions is an important part of the fitness game, which is something Nick experienced firsthand.
He ran into a number of roadblocks along the way that most of us can relate to, including issues with workout and meal scheduling, hunger and cravings, dietary temptations, and more, and in our chat, Nick shares what has helped him navigate these barriers skillfully and prevent them from getting in his way.
So, if you like hearing motivational stories about how people have changed their bodies and lives, and if you want to pick up a few tips that may help you along in your personal journey, then this episode is for you.
