The world of fitness is changing, question is, are you going to change with it? Since myself and Rachel have been coaches, much has changed, our goals, our plans, our education, our journey, and we have changed and flexed with it, and had many life realisations. Mainly that life is more than fitness, that we are a sum of many more things, and this is how we now live an AWESOME life, are you ready to do the same? Are you ready for an AWESOME life?

Jason Ferruggia joins me on the show to get real with why and how we do things in life. Why do we train the way we do, why we eat the way we do, why training 3 days a week is best, why eating 'clean' is best but life is for enjoyment, why stress is crippling our minds, why life is about living - which many of us are not doing, why your mind is the stumbling block for everything we attempt to achieve, and why the expectations of the fitness industry have been holding people back for years in living to their true potential. This is an EPIC show.
