How to Change the Fitness Industry (36:55)

This is for everyone and not just trainers and coaches. The industry is full of sacred cows that need to be taken to slaughter. Stop weighing and measuring yourself, stop tracking how much weight you lift, and stop setting goals. That is how we make the world a healthier place!

My Apology (31:45)

I need to apologize for the way I was. Throwing up and being so sore you can barely move are NOT things that should be a part of the fitness world. They are NOT good things and we need to stop setting them up on a pedestal as aspirations for fitness.

Why Do We Always Talk About Athletes? (27:05)

You hear it and see it all the time: “this is good for athletes but you don’t need to worry about it!” Why? What does this mean and why is it important to your fitness?

Girls Make Themselves Weak Because They Believe They Are (13:30)

Women are taught to be physically weak and to accept that that is the norm. It is a bunch of bullshit and we need to really start focusing on changing this belief!!!!

Nutrient Timing (22:40)

This was a hot topic for a decade in fitness – what is it and how does it relate to you?

Don’t Give Trophies to Kids (10:25)

Even professional athletes agree!!!!!

  1. I’m making my way through your podcasts and enjoying the content very much. It’s quite refreshing to hear someone discuss evidence based practices! I taught Health (not gym) at the middle and high school level for a decade before I decided to quit last year. I taught at an inner city school in Ohio (USA) and there were some great, average and downright horrible teachers. However, it seems the newer teachers are receiving better training. I agree that we have to make sure we are professional and prove that fitness and health are important. Luckily, schools still require health and Phys. Ed in both middle and high school here. A big problem I see is the lack of training for gym teachers specific to their needs. Most of our professional development time was spent on trying to improve test scores.

    1. I wish they would bring back health and fitness to school – from Kindergarten all the way through University and College. And then maybe we could have career fitness pros and get better education out there!
