Scams and fitness influencers. Brittany Dawn is the latest in the social media headlines for selling cookie cutter meal plans and workout routines to her followers.
Back in the gym working on some legs and trying out Rogues safety bar.
Becoming a brand ambassador can be an appealing thing for some on social media. however is it really worth selling a product with the intent to make a commission to your followers? During the time when posting with products is no longer considered selling out but rather a form of legitimizing yourself what’s the reality of being a brand ambassador. In todays episode I talk about Kora fitness apparel. They are a company who donates a portion of their product sales to one of four charities that you the buyer can choose from. The cloths look nice on the site however this is not a product review but rather a look into becoming a brand ambassador. This is also not a shot against Kora nor is it praising their products. They popped up on my social media radar and I am simply using them as an example to analyze and ask questions. Thank you guys for your continued support of the podcast and enjoy.
Drink a case of beer every night and they will say you have a drinking problem. Eat fast food every day for lunch and they will ask to go with you next time. Where do you draw the line with food. do you demonize eating in excess or do you justify eating out more than once a weed because of convienence? Lets talk about it?
Eating out is not cheap by any stretch. Today I talk a little about how I am approaching eating out in 2019 and what goes through my mind when Im asked about going to eat out. Eating out is not cheap by any stretch. It can add up really fast. Last month my wife and I took a look at the finances after out winter vacation and we were surprised at how much money we spent on food alone. Now i’m not talking about groceries. Im talking fast food as well as bad foods like muffins from Costco and donuts. looking at the money you can save by cutting out those weekday lunch runs can be a huge tip in the scale for you financially as well as with your health.
Today I take the podcast on the road (literally) with an in car podcast. I have tried time after time to get a podcast I can be happy with while in the car but road noise among other things have always held me back. As I continue to learn how to edit and what will ultimately be acceptable in my book I will keep trying.
Longest episode to date I think. Today we have guest Jesse on the podcast. He is a salon owner and well as hair stylist. In this episode Jesse shares his knowledge of the biz, we touch on social media, and at one point forget were even recording a podcast as the conversation continues. A huge thank you to those who continue to support the podcast as I grow into finding my voice on this platform. What started out as a primarily fitness themed show is now evolving into something I am really excited about. Be sure to check out Jesse as well as Blur Hair Studios on Instagram.
Consistency is key in any endeavor. When it comes to fitness you have to make it apart of your life in order to yield results.
Accepting failure can be a tricky concept to adjust to as a lifter. In todays podcast I touch a little on what failure means to me in the gym. Failure is your wall, your new hill to overcome, your limitation. When you look at failure on a lift like this you can analyze and find a way to train around it, build up weak areas, and ultimately overcome that failure. I believe everyone should fail a lift. It is a humbling experience that can make sure the biggest progress you might not even think about and that is self defeat. Before we even approach the bar our head is flooded with thoughts of failure. During the lift these thought find their companion “excuses” ultimately leading you to sometimes bail out when you could have pushed through.
In todays podcast I talk about advertising for others. Social media is riddled with advertisers and influencers. Know your worth and know or believe in the product.
Relying on others to motivate you into going to the gym and why this isn’t the best for you. When on your fitness journey you need to learn to go at it alone. Getting a membership with someone may be nice or even financially beneficial but if the reason you go depends on if someone else does then you are off to a bad start and failure to commit will soon follow. This isn’t to say having a workout partner is a bad thing or to bash those who encourage you. This is to affirm the notion that this is a lifestyle and that going alone should be just apart of your life as anything else you do solo. Thank you guys again for your continued support and enjoy.

Living the dad life and once again on that broken sleep schedule. In todays episode I take the podcast outdoors with my oldest son as I talk a little about my training and lack of sleep with a newborn in the house. As always thank you guys for listening and providing positive feedback. Maintaining the energy for the gym without cheating my family out of the energy they deserve from me can be hard. With our newborn my wife and I are once again going through those sleepless nights. A few of my workouts have suffered due to this but for the most part as each day passes I find that my body is adapting. I could not imagine nor would i recommend maintaining this type of schedule long term but for the most part it isn’t as tough as I had thought it would be during those first few weeks.
