As we wrap up this mini-series of client spotlights, I welcome Pat Carano to the show this week. I've had the honor of working with Pat and her daughter Cherie for about 5 years and Pat's story is one I've wanted to share on the show for a really long time. You'll hear about her motivations for starting with us, the challenges she's been met with along the way, her recent spark which led to her dropping 30 pounds and more. A very special thanks to all of the clients who joined me for this and I hope you enjoy Pat's story.

In Part 3 of our 4-Part client spotlight series, I get to introduce you to Don McNair. Don and his wife, Amy, have seen amazing weight loss with us to date and while I'll be sharing Amy's inspiring story at a later date, I wanted Don to have some time to shine this week. In this episode, you get to hear what led him to RevFit, how he's been successful at weight loss, what's kept him motivated and more. I hope you enjoy his story.

In this week's client spotlight and Part 2 of 4 where we highlight a handful of our clients here at RevFit, I get to share time with Pete Trivelli. We've had the opportunity to work with his wife, his daughter, his son, his sister and even his soon-to-be son-in-law. Pete also holds the throne at the Rev for the best trapbar deadlift at 565x1. Not too shabby for a retired fella! In this episode we talk about what his journey in strength and weight loss has looked like, how the community has helped him and how he manages expectations between gaining strength and losing weight.

One of the aspects of this show prior to changing direction with the episodes that I missed the most was client spotlights. In similar fashion to what I did with the last several guests, the next four episodes will be featuring some of our RevFit rockstars and highlighting their experiences since joining here. First up is a family we have had a huge pleasure working with since they started early last year. The Herman family's story actually begins with their oldest son, Charlie, and would soon evolve into working with his mother, Rachel, and his brother and sister, Joey and Abby, respectively. Tune in to hear directly from Rachel what that journey would be like to date. I hope you enjoy.

In the final episode of our 4-part series together, Dr. Lisa Lewis wraps up with me as we chat about resilience, how to define self-care, how we balance our priorities and a very unexpected (and hilarious) detour on peanut butter. It's another episode you don't want to miss.

As we continue our 4-part series together, Dr. Lisa Lewis is back with me to discuss using strength training and exercise as ways to improve our mental health. Dr. Lisa talks about the chemical changes that happen between the brain and body when we incorporate movement into our lives, how it can be used in place of or as a complement to medication, and why it's so effective.

In Part 2 of our 4-part series together, Dr. Lisa Lewis returns as we discuss the importance of our mental health. Dr. Lisa talks about how mental health is just as vital to our success and livelihood as physical health and how one area can directly influence the other. We also dive into how social media affects our headspace and why it would appear that the younger generation is seeing a rise in depression and anxiety in today's world. You don't want to miss this episode.

I honored to welcome back someone who almost needs no introduction on this show as she's been on four times previously, Dr. Lisa Lewis. You can reference Episodes 157 (with her husband, Tony Gentilcore), 189, 227 and 238 for our previous conversations together. Dr. Lisa has been kind enough to join me for the next 4-part series and in this first episode, we discuss a strengths based approach in both training and life. We talk about negativity bias, leveraging our strengths and how to interpret our weaknesses or opposing challenges within perspective of what we're best at and much more.

In our final episode of our 4-part series together, Dr. Allan and I go a slightly different route with our content to focus more on training this week. In this episode, we discuss considerations for training depending on the goals of the individual. Dr. Allan breaks down training sequences for the strength athlete versus a focus on maximizing hypertrophy. We also break down our thoughts on frequency, volume and considerations around injuries.

In Part 3 of our 4-part series together, Dr. Allan Bacon and I continue our conversations in fat loss by tailoring this episode to emotional eating and overcoming cravings. Just like the first two episodes in this series, there's a lot to soak in within a relatively short time so you may want to listen back to this one more than once.

Dr. Allan Bacon and I are back this week in Part 2 of our 4-Part series together. In this episode, we talk about expectations around hunger and how to manage it, as well as the criticism and influence someone might be subject to while dieting and what to expect from our body's responses to dieting while doing so. Just like our first episode in this series, this episode is full of insight and Dr. Allan has a ton of information to help.

Dr. Allan Bacon makes his second appearance on the show after a great first episode with his wife, Beth (#244) in April of 2020. We kick off the first of our 4-part series with a massive conversation about breaking through diet and exercise plateaus. We know they are nearly inevitable during any path towards self-improvement so this episode is jam-packed full of tips to get you moving in the direction you want to be.

Ruby Cherie and I conclude our 4-part series this week diving into our thoughts on motivation. We talk about how the evolution of motivation in our lives and within health and fitness can and should adapt on a given spectrum, why gratitude and mindfulness matter and what it looks like in real life to have competing interests and priorities continue to change.

In Part 3 of our 4-part series together, Ruby Cherie joins me again as we try to look at the myriad ways we tend to view progress when we're trying to improve our health and our physiques. We talk about the dangers of echo chambers and curated opinions, how progress looks in the scope of our lives outside and inside the gym and where comparisons can hold us back.

In Part 2 of our 4-part series, Ruby Cherie and I take inspiration from a recent article written about our last episode together to discuss what we can learn about privilege and identities within diets and fitness. There were so many avenues to take the conversation and it almost seems like we only scratched the surface. Suffice to say, we're all working from completely different foundations when it comes to how we approach self-improvement.

Ruby Cherie returns as my next guest for our newest 4-part series on the show. She was previously on Episodes 96 and 213 which I definitely recommend you check out as well. In this first part, we conquer the reasons why you would benefit from focusing on health before focusing on getting smaller at all costs. Within that, we discuss better sleep, better self-talk, a focus on getting stronger and a focus on challenging yourself with new goals.

In the final part of our 4-part series together, Sohee Lee and I tackle the topics of diet culture and anti-diet culture. There was so much for us to sift through in this episode and we both did our best to present both sides of the coin in the most respectful way possible. As one could imagine, there are pros and cons to both stances and we used our time together in the last of the series to try and break it all down.

In the second part of our 4-part series together, Sohee Lee is back with another episode tailored more to our fellow coaches. We talk about content creation this week. Sohee has the perspective of the online coach with a very large following and her thoughts on what platforms and what types of posts she feels perform best for her and appropriately target her demographic. I offer my thoughts on content creation from the viewpoint of primarily brick-and-mortar marketing and helps me attract and retain my target demographic. If you're looking for insight as a fellow coach, you'll want to dive in.

Sohee Lee makes her triumphant return to join me in the next 4-part series of the show. Longtime listeners may remember her first episode with me way back at #77 in August of 2017. It has shockingly been that long since I circled back to get Sohee back on the show. Fortunately, this miniseries makes up for a lot of lost time. In this episode, we cover what we feel to be many of the basics that fellow trainers would need to get started as online coaches. You'll hear our thoughts on touchpoint expectations, the importance of video calls, setting boundaries between the coach and client in the online realm, scarcity marketing, pricing and much more.

I conclude this excellent 4-part series with Dr. Stuart Phillips with this week's episode. This time, we discuss how protein is potentially associated with the acid-ash hypothesis, kidney failure, correlations with cancer and the potential roles it can and has played with COVID-19. A very special thanks again to Dr. Stuart for partaking in the series with me. Stay tuned next week for an all new 4-part series.

Dr. Stuart Phillips is back this week as we continue with Part 3 in a 4-Part series. This week, we tackle the role of protein and resistance training with regard to the aging individual. We discuss why protein needs differ as we age, considerations between genders and gender related differences with aging, why resistance training remains so important as we get older and diet philosophies which can help us live our best lives beyond youth.

I am back with Part 2 of this 4-part series with Dr. Stuart Phillips. We continue our conversation on protein after last week's primer episode with the roles protein can play in exercise. In this episode, we talk about nutrient timing, considerations for smaller or larger doses of protein at one time, how and if the type of exercise you do is affected by protein intake, considerations for whole food sources versus supplementation, and how the type of training you do correlates with muscle protein synthesis.

I begin the next 4-part series of the show with a guest who needs little introduction within the fitness/nutrition industry: Dr. Stuart Phillips from McMaster University. Dr. Stuart has arguably done more research on protein and the intersection of exercise with its use than anyone else I know. We kick off the series with a primer of sorts and start building the foundation for the following three episodes together. In this episode we discuss why protein is important, considerations for dosages, the potential downsides to protein use, how animal and plant based proteins differ, amino acid profiles, leucine thresholds and why protein works for dieting. You won't want to miss any of these!

I wrap up the final episode in this 4-part series with Mike Howard of Lean Minded this week. We touch on what Mike calls The 4 P's Of Progress: Practice, Patience, Persistence and Presence. Mike talks about these factors when it comes to food and I took a leaning towards exercise and strength training. A big shout out to Mike for being my guinea pig on this new venture as I hope you, as the listener, enjoyed what we were striving for.
