If you want to hear some interesting ramblings on the psychology of getting and staying fit, then you want to listen to this podcast.
In this episode, I have another chat with my friend Noah Kagan on the psychology of getting and staying in shape.
In case you didn’t catch the last episode, here’s a little primer on Noah: he was the 30th employee at Facebook and the Director of Marketing for Mint, and is the founder of Sumo.com and AppSumo.com, and he happens to be an all-around neat dude with interesting ideas about a lot of things.
In this show, Noah and I talk about how to deal with some of the common psychological obstacles and difficulties that keep people from getting the body they really want, and we go all over the place, ranging from Noah’s experiences purposely gaining and losing 40 pounds to my thoughts on how to make training more fun and a lot more.
Here’s a little sneak peek of what you’ll find in today’s episode:
How people talk themselves out of getting into shape.
How to immediately make your diet and training more enjoyable.
An easy way to motivate yourself to do new things.
How to use your behaviors to shape your attitudes (not the other way around).
