Ep 50: The Best Advice I Have Ever Given

Welcome to the fiftieth episode of Coach Taylor Radio.

This is important. I don’t usually ask this – but I think that this one needs to get shared. Make the people in your life who are important to you listen (or watch on FB or Youtube). Share it with everyone you care about and then pester them into submission and make them listen!!!!!!

I wanted to do things a little differently for this episode so instead of answering questions and going over topics I created two sections.

Section One ( starts at 5:00)
-A complete overview of EVERYTHING I think you should be doing for the rest of your life to maximize your health, fitness, and happiness.
-This is the culmination of everything I have learned from more than 15 years working in my field, two university degrees, countless certifications, courses, clinics, lectures, books, and resources, and personally coaching thousands of people.

Section Two (starts at 39:20)
-We do goal setting all wrong and we focus on the wrong aspects of our lives to bring us true happiness and satisfaction, which in turn is the basis of our health.
-In this section I go over what you need to do in order to live a fulfilling life vs. life of stress and struggle.

I truly hope that this episode causes at least a few people to stop, think, and begin the process of making changes to enhance their lives now and for decades to come.

Thank-you to all who have listened over the years to my idle musings on health and fitness. I love each and every one of you (even the haters!) and will continue to passionately deliver health and fitness advice designed to improve the quality of your life.

All you have to do is listen and make small steps everyday.

-Coach Taylor
