- What makes us all successful within our journey

- Why so many of us lack confidence and where that fits in with external and internal motivators

- How Rich Fronin can inspire - but how far should that inspiration go

- How to be a unicorn yourself

- What FITNESS actually is

- How so many of us are caught in a rut with training and t's damaging other areas of our life

- Why we choose to be fit, and are we living to those reasons

I invite Phil Graham for a 2nd interview on the podcast and this time we discuss diabetes, something that is very close to Phil's heart. In this interview we discuss the differences between type 1 and 2 diabetes, how to optimise it, the role of insulin, the importance of exercise, things you need to be aware of, optimising body composition with diabetes, health considerations, training considerations, micronutrient considerations, and more. I also delve into Phil's transition out of bodybuilding and into the normal world of training for health and performance. An excellent show with a knowledgable and humble guy, and if you haven't got a copy of his book, get one!

We are all capable of great things, but we have to choose to be great. Jamie is someone I disliked many years ago in fitness, but his teachings and where he is at these days impresses me daily, his mindset, his training, everything is an example to others to learn from. I interview Jamie (aka Grenade Jay) on whats changed, his journey, his habits, his values, his training, his diet, his life, everything, and there is something everyone can learn from in this podcast. Enjoy.

Are you seeking perfection? Is it a healthy or unhealthy habit you have? Where do we draw the line with what is healthy, and what is not? Being vein is a good thing, but there is a limit, how do we find this personal limit and channel this desire to be something that adds health and satisfaction to our lives, rather than leaving us anxious and unhappy. We also discuss self-awareness, dressing to impress and more.

What is the perfect body fat %, or is there one? The body has many ways of showing you what is the ideal, but how many of us are listening to the cues. But we need to, its paramount. In this episode we go off on many tangents, discussing how we view the body, training, hormones, not having a period, fat loss, extremes, being in a good place, and more. It's a content packed show from me and the Fox!
