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.

Mike Howard of Lean Minded is back with me again this week as we continue our 4-part series together. This week, we dive further into the nuance of food environment and how what we're exposed to can influence how and how much we eat. Mike and I talk about better ways to craft that environment so you can see better fat loss results.

My new direction of the show continues this week as Mike Howard of Lean Minded returns for Part 2 of a 4-Part series. In this episode, we cover the concept of steps over leaps and why small changes may be more important, more sustainable and more realistic with fat loss over larger, perhaps more dramatic changes.

As I looked into the future for this podcast, I wanted to take the show in slightly different directions. I credit returning guest, Mike Howard of Lean Minded, to be the "guinea pig", if you will, for the first in a 4-part series. To hear our previous episodes together check out Episodes 64, 102, 159, and 221).This week, we kick off the series with habits for fat loss. Mike and I tackle what we believe are some of the most important concepts to consider and what he has found works best for his clients when you're trying to lose weight effectively.

Maybe it comes as little surprise to long-time listeners of the show but Leigh Peele makes her 6th appearance for the milestone 300th episode. You can also check out our previous conversations via Episodes 28, 118, 150, 200 and 215. She has been in the midst of a complete re-write of "The Fat Loss Troubleshoot" which will be released at the end of this year in a very big way and, according to Leigh, is nothing like the original release. We discuss the directions in which she took the book, where her current philosophies and strategies are headed when it comes to coaching fat loss for clients, the importance of diet breaks and maintenance eating and much more. I feel like each time we talk, the episodes get better over time and this one is arguably my favorite. A very big thanks to everyone who has helped us make it to 300 episodes and stay tuned to the end of the show to hear a little bit about the changes I'm looking to make as the show continues on.

I've been connected with B-Well Nation's Leslie Benedetto for several years and of many things we have in common within fitness we also have raised children with autism and have struggled with addiction leading into this industry. In this episode, we talk about the intersection of those factors, how her own business with group exercise has evolved over time and most recently, how they have shifted and changed their business model on the heels of the pandemic.

Ned Parks has been a client and friend of mine for almost 3 years now and, within that time, he has not only referred friends and colleagues to the business but his wife and daughter have become a part of the community as well. In this episode, we talk about what inspired him to start, how he remains motivated to improve, where a tendency to fall to extremes may have backfired on his journey and how sustainability plays a  significant role.

Last year, I had the pleasure of joining a group of fellow fitness professionals looking to understand how to maximize their mailing lists to help their clients. Tara Arndt led the way and she definitely knows what she's doing! Tara is the wife of Tim Arndt who made an appearance on the show way back on Episode #161. If you are a fitness professional tuning in, I highly recommend checking out how Tara helps me dive into my own mailing list strategies. If you are not in the industry, the conversation might help you understand why you are marketed to the way you are within the industry. Tara has even provided a free link for a boot camp course below.

A.J. Morton, of FitPro Mentorship Review, joins me this week on the show.
