Remember podcasts 291 & 292 where I opened up about the hardest year of my life and nearly going bankrupt? Well I've 100% turned it around, I'm in a good place again, I'm giving myself a high 5! 

But how did I do it, and what have the last 6 months been like after those 2 podcasts I did? 

And what does the future have in store for me?

In life, are you taking your chances? Mike Vacanti bought a one way trip to NYC to apply for a job, a massive gamble, and it worked, 5 minutes later he's the personal coach to Gary VaynerChuk, BOOM!

We discuss Mike's life gambles, what stops others from taking big risks, fear, his $150,000 fitness poker stunt, our love of Jordan B Perterson, the future of fitness, and re-grouping after failure. A not to be missed show. I'd Highly recommend some of Mike's blogs:

Can you get stronger by not lifting heavy weights? Yes, but how? I feel the strongest I have ever felt during my off season training and all my 1RM lifts have gone up in the gym, yet I'm not doing any traditional rep ranges in terms of my strength training, why is this? A short show with Andy McKenzie in support to quickly explore this topic on getting strong!

If I could tell my story and give young people career advice, what would I say? Well this live recording is just that. I got invited to Kesgrave high School in Ipswich to give a talk to 14-16 year olds. I wanted to inspire them with my journey, what I'd learnt, the pros and cons of uni, the career ready mindset that guarantees success, what holds most people back, and much more. 

I hope this talk inspires many. Please share with other young people. ideo also available on YouTube & FB.

Are there differences between men and women in their nutrition and training needs? In this episode I speak to researcher and doctorate Abbie Smith-Ryan from University of North Carolina, as we delve into macronutrients, HIIT training, supplements, stress, fasting, misinformation on the internet, and the different approaches one might take whether male or female in all the above scenarios. Enjoy. 

Find Abbie all over the internet by having a good google, but she loves twitter:

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.
