The Iron Life Podcast #173: How To Live A Life Worth Living

I’m not one to sugarcoat things.

Every episode I keep it real with you.

Life isn’t always as glamorous as social media makes it seem.

There are highs and lows and ebbs and flows.

And the good thing is that there is a lot to learn from those lows, even if we don’t realize it in the moment.

On today’s episode I share with you some of my lowest lows, what I’ve learned from them and how they’ve helped me on my path.

My goal of this episode is to show you that if I can get out of the hell I was in, you sure as hell can, too.

The Iron Life Podcast #168: How To Master The Art of Coaching

The Iron Life Podcast #168: How To Master The Art of Coaching

Running an effective training session doesn’t mean counting reps and being a cheerleader.

As a coach, we wear many different “hats” in a given session.

You wear the trainer “hat”, then become the therapist, comedian, DJ, motivational speaker, teacher, coach, mentor, and more.

Then factor in the flow of your training session and managing different people and personalities, and their unique structure, level and injury history.

There’s a lot that goes into doing this at a high level.

Today’s show is all about mastering the art of coaching, and how to tie these things together to create an amazing experience for your clients.

I hope you enjoy.
