I kick myself for not getting legendary coach, Lee Boyce, on the show sooner. That problem is solved with this week's episode. We cover a lot of ground in this episode: his evolution as a writer, learning how to recover and train around injuries, how he and his clients have been reacting to the pandemic and why the path to fitness success shouldn't necessarily be the easy one to take.

I welcome back two returning guests and two great coaches: Melody Schoenfeld (Episodes #88 and #205) and Chad Landers (Episode #106). As they are both gym owners in the state of California, a state which has been more aggressive than most with lockdowns, I wanted to know more about how they've been reacting to the situation. Both Chad and Melody operate different formats of training and both had to shift their clientele to methods that worked best at the time. Tune in to find out what worked, what didn't and how they are continuing to move forward despite more uncertainty with how California is handling the virus response.

It's a topic that is very close to my heart, having a son with autism. This week, I welcome Eric Chessen of Autism Fitness to the show.

Alex Leaf returns to the show this week after a great episode he did last year, featuring wife Briana Theroux (Episode #187). This time, he's here to talk about his new program which he has put together with Briana and Ari Whitten called "The Fat Loss Blueprint". While there are many components to the program itself, I asked Alex specifically about a few areas that I felt don't get enough mention on the show: circadian rhythms, hormesis, hedonic resets, and the nuance between women's fat loss versus men's.

This week, I'm back to another client spotlight to share time with our very own Kimberly Young. We talk about the events that led to her starting with us two years ago, what's kept her with us throughout that time and thoughts on improving the gym atmosphere to be more inclusive to black communities.

I'm honored to be joined this week by fellow coach Chrissy King. This is her debut on the show and she has put together a timely and incredible workshop called "Anti-Racism For Wellness Professionals". There has been a lot happening socially and I'm very grateful to Chrissy for putting together an exhaustive and comprehensive project to help others in the industry know how to better serve others at this time. This was a very eye-opening workshop to participate in and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to understand more about what's happening with the black community and how we can all shape a more unified country to live in.

Tony Gentilcore returns after a great first episode with his wife Dr. Lisa Lewis back on Episode #157. As of the recording of this episode, he is not only recovering from an injury but still dealing with business closure in the state of Massachusetts. We talk about why studios like his CORE and my RevFit should be considered different entities from box gyms and group exercise formats in light of the pandemic. We also discuss how all of his business: speaking engagements, travel, and online programs have been affected and how he plans to move forward.

Georgie Fear returns after some time away and three extremely popular episodes we've done together (#51, 81 and 121) and K. Aleisha Fetters returns with her (see episode #249) as they have recently released an awesome book they co-authored: "Give Yourself More". In this episode, we talk about why women have continued to be encouraged to be "less" as opposed to more and how that affects their diets, their self-image and the marketing messages they can be influenced by. The book itself is EXCELLENT and a highly recommended read. Download, subscribe, share with your friends and please take a moment to leave us an iTunes review.

Fellow coach and podcast host (see The Lifestyle Chase), Chris Liddle makes his debut on the show this week. I wanted to hear Chris's perspective and take on how the pandemic has been affecting him both personally and professionally. He brings the angle of being an independent trainer working for a larger facility in Canada and I wanted to see how coaches like himself were adapting to all of the changes. Chris is as down-to-earth as they come and I loved hearing how he was able to find the positive in so many potential negatives during this time.

For this milestone 250th episode of the show, I went for a client spotlight. I've worked with the McIvor family in some capacity for most of the time I've been in business. Over the last couple of years, I've had the great pleasure of working with Hugh McIvor, who we affectionately call "Mr. Grit". Anyone who trains here at the studio that has crossed paths with him knows how and why he continues to inspire the rest of us. After listening to this episode, I have no doubt you'll understand why.

It has been since Episodes 7 and 33 that board certified endocrinologist Dr. Karl Nadolsky has been on the show. I still recommend the shows we did back then (nearly 4 years ago). For this week's bonus episode, I bring him back inspired by an article he shared on the internet positing that the key to better weight loss is through a larger breakfast. Due to the hype behind tools like intermittent fasting and the wide array of opinions on how dieting affects your hormones, I knew Dr. Karl would be a great source to chat about these things.

It amazes me even as I type it, but this week marks Eric Helms' debut on my show. I can promise it won't be the last. Eric and his 3DMJ team have recently released a new program called "Transitioning Away From Tracking". It is excellent. In this episode, we not only talk about that program but understanding the nuance of when it's appropriate to track calories and when it's better to shift away as well as the psychological effects of either strategy.
