Ben Coomber Radio (fitness)

Today we discuss pre workout nutrition when training early in the morning, and how to get motivation back when it slips in the gym. We also delve into what happens when we don't make progress? Whats the plan? Should you be scared to change your plan? Maybe even change career? From changing your training program in the gym, to changing your life direction, it's time to be bold and step up to what needs to change.

Does fitness define you? If it does, this is how to break free from the affliction. I am all for fitness and sport being part of your life, but it's not your life, unless you are a professional athlete, which still has its boundaries. We also discuss how simplicity can be the root cause of a problem, why no one wants to be told what to do, how to talk to people to get positive change, any many more tangents and rants.
