Kate Galliett is back with me for Part 2 in our 4-Part series together. In this episode, we talk about how to be more aware and respectful of the pain that we're feeling. Kate walks through a process (also detailed in her upcoming book, "Becoming Unbreakable", where you can take a step-by-step approach to understanding what pain you're experiencing, how to work around it and the variety of treatment options depending on the severity of the pain.

I'm very excited to welcome back Kate Galliett to the show for our next 4-part series. Kate was previously on Episodes #123 and #272. This time, we're reconnecting initially in promotion of her new book "Becoming Unbreakable" which we'll be chatting about throughout the series but our first episode actually takes a few steps back. Kate and I talk a little bit about our origin stories into this industry and how the way we treated our bodies and evolved with them has shaped the way we coach.

I wrap up this 4-part series with Dr. Susan Kleiner this week on a fascinating topic regarding nutrition. In this episode, we talk about how the food we eat affects not just our bodies but our moods and our performance. Dr. Sue offers an example of an elite athlete she had the privilege of working with in efforts to highlight how our diets affect not just the way our bodies move but how brain function and emotions are affected as well. This is a highly recommended episode and series!

Dr. Susan Kleiner is back with me for the third part in our 4-part series together. In this episode, we talk about the differences in knowledge and application of when a registered dietitian would be utilized for the needs of a client versus a nutrition coach and the vast disparity of education that happens between these two options. We also chat about the inclusion of nutritionists who might fall in between these two distinctions (of RD and coach).

In the 2nd part of my 4-part series with Dr. Susan Kleiner, we take a look at how macros have taken over the conversation regarding food. Dr. Sue and I talk about the nuance in that conversation and where it can be perceived as a reductionist view of what we eat. She talks about when it's appropriate to take a micro-look at food and when simple principles work better for the general population.

I am honored to welcome back Dr. Susan Kleiner for her fourth appearance on the show and the start of the next 4-part series. I highly recommend you check out her previous episodes: #135, 142, and 191. In this episode, we focus on the recent studies that have been released discussing the merits of a weight neutral approach to improved health. Dr. Sue takes us back to a conversation that started over two decades ago and looks at where nutrition, exercise and health overlap and why a weight loss approach may not be the most effective for long-term success with overweight clients.

As we pull this 4-part series to a close, Alberto Alvarez joins me again as we tackle time management. Since my work is primarily face-to-face and his, by comparison, is in the online realm, we have very different schedules that determine how we prioritize our day. You can hear how these schedules have evolved over the years and how we have to manage tasks, timing and extenuating circumstances.

Taking inspiration from Steve Kamb's great book "Level Up Your Life", Alberto Alvarez returns for our 3rd part in our 4-part series to talk about gamifying your health adventure. We break down how to add levels to the habits you want to change, the concept of chunking your goals into realistic and achievable steps and understanding how to start and when to pivot and add levels as you go.

In Part 2, of our 4-part series together, Alberto Alvarez is back with me as we tackle the notion of perfection in our diets and in training.

In our next 4-part mini-series, I have the honor of welcoming Alberto Alvarez (a.k.a. The Macro Wizard) to the show. In this episode, we talk about his origins into the industry and our main focal point is the role that kindness plays in our lives. Alberto and I take liberties in discussing how both personal and professional kindness have served to help us in our lives and our careers and how it can help you as well.

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.

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.

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.

We kick off the first of our 4-part series with a massive conversation about breaking through diet and exercise plateaus.

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.
