Ben Coomber Radio (fitness)

My second confessions podcast journeying my last 10 years in the fitness industry, except today I talk just as much about the future, as I do the past. I recap on some thoughts and comments that arose from part 1, my journey with caffeine and how I was so wrong, yet so right about some of my assumptions and thus how that led me to the development of TDT, which is now RIP. I then detail why TDT is now now more and why AS is now born, enjoy.

What should we feed our kids, and where are the root issues? Should we give our kids sweets, how do we get kids to eat their greens, and do we need a mindset shift when it comes to nutrition for kids, both at home and at school? Are all the issues we have with child obesity and concentration in school just down to a lack of education, or is it more than that? Myself and guest Jennifer Bulcock tackle this sensitive topic in support of our new video and free book on kids nutrition.

I've made mistakes & failed, a lot, let me share my last 10 years with you in a VERY honest, raw and upfront show, explaining my path, how I evolved as a coach, what theories I evolved with and how they changed over the years, my position stance on the gut, hormones, and building a diet, why criticism is a strange beast, why a life of focusing on the past only holds you back, and how I aim to move forward with my work in the fitness world from this day forward.

We get on a rant about working hard over being talented, a mis diagnosed problem in modern society where most problems can be overcome by simple hard work. Rachel Guy and I also discuss leadership within your own life and with others, good books in the area of leadership, and some life experiences we have had both personally and with others. We also discuss training when your 15, how training variety can be thought of outside of the gym, fasted training and the dynamics of hybrid training, and more.
