Ben Coomber Radio (fitness)

If you could ask me anything, what would you ask me? This is how this show went down. The 3 Dumbbells is a London based podcast with Fred, Seb and Mat, and this is the recording as they dive deep into my professional background, my favourite books, top podcasts, my values as a coach, my tough year going bankrupt, views on coaching and change, my daily routines, being vulnerable, and why I've done what I've done in my career to date. 

Check out The 3 Dumbbells Podcast for more of Seb, Mat and Fred.

The fitness industry is a weird place right? Don't get me wrong, it needs to change, it has to change, people are more confused and troubled than ever despite the wealth of information available, but there is light everywhere, you just need to know where to find it, and to know that right now you are enough. 

Today's isn't about me, Dave Cottrell is back, with 90 second video about the fitness industry, enjoy...

James Haskell, England and Lions rugby player and top lad is BACK for his 3rd appearance on the show! Today we evolve the topic of mastering your own athleticism, why so many young men are not achieving their goals, the benefits of expertise and having a plan, but following the plan. We then have a MASSIVE moan about social media, the purpose of it, and the people on it, and how we can get more from it.

Is your hydration optimal and do our supplement needs change in the summer? This is a key question as we enter the hot summer months. In this podcast I discuss the hydration index, beer and coffee being dehydrating, minerals in our water, electrolytes, the best filters, and lastly a few tweaks with our supplements in the summer months. 

Yve-Bio filter I discussed: https://amzn.to/2Hp3Qwd

When do you need more data to reach your goals? And what data do we pay attention to? In this episode Tom B and I answer one of your questions discussing how do we get better results, when do we need more data, what is that data, where do psychological boundaries hold us back, where do calories become valuable, when do we change volume & intensity, how do we periodise, recovery parameters, and ultimately getting the outcome from training we expect! 

Expect big things from this show ;)

Is there pain in your life today, or has there been in the past and it took you too long to solve it and move on? Pain is an indicator, we don't avoid it, bury it, or hide it, we deal with it head on, but how when it feels too tender to touch? Today lets discuss three ways that I think could change how you deal with pain in your life, both short term and long term, and thus live a happier life with more meaning and less frustration.

The fitness industry is full of egos and narcissists, and it's not helping the industry move forward. In this frank live recording from my May 2018 Body Power Expo talk I get as raw and honest as I can about the state of the fitness industry, the issues it faces, but importantly what we can do about it. If we want things to change, we have to be the voices of change, not just complain. Amidst all the swearing I hope you join me in this call to arms! 

If you agree with the messages in this show, please share!

Do we do ourselves a disservice sometimes with our learning? We follow all sorts of people online and absorb all sorts of facts daily, but do we have a BS filter that is fully operational? Are we applying common sense? After listening to a Joe Rogan podcast on keto it got me thinking about conflicting opinions in the world of nutrition and how some people will contradict what they say with overlapping theories. Here's the solution!

Why is fat loss complicated? Or is it, really, honestly? In this candid and honest talk I freestyle on my approach to coaching clients at Be Fit Expo. I got invited to the event to present to a room of ladies on why they might be holding THEMSELVES back from their goals, and how I would approach it as a coach highlighting my 2 step initial approach, then outline the journey. The very system and approach I use in my 90 day coaching program Fat Loss for Life.

Today I set you 2 challenges around your mobile phone and social media use. I'm setting these challenges as I see too many people having an unhealthy relationship with social media and or social media giving them some sort of anxiety.

Our mental well-being is precious, we need to protect it, but we need boundaries as we get into unhealthy habits, after all we're only human.

Well, today is about breaking those habits, will you join me?

Do the challenges, great things will happen, promise.
