Self-Discipline Month (Part 3) – Lessons From A Year of Personal Transformation [PODCAST #627]

CJ Kilmer joins Brett to share his very impressive story of personal transformation over the last year. CJ had struggled with his weight for 20 years, and in the last nine months he has lost 125 pounds, has taken up martial arts, goes on regular 5+ mile runs, and he continues to make gains in the gym. CJ will go into detail about his holistic hot-rodding approach to this enriching and potentially life-saving transformation. A majority of our conversation deals with resolving inner conflict. We'll walk two paths to do this, both focused on the idea that we are made up of several different, sometimes conflicting, parts of self. The first path is the simpler of the two. Cognitive distortion. ...

Jason Seib – Optimizing Your Mind/Body Alliance [PODCAST #607]

Jason Seib is a fat loss coach, fitness and nutrition author, and speaker. He is also the creator of the Alt-Shift Diet, which doesn't have to be seen as a "diet diet" - temporary and filled with frustrating sacrifices. His philosophy aligns with previous health and fitness coaches we've had on the show, and with what has proven most successful for me. Even though Jason's work focuses primarily on 30+ moms frustrated with yo-yo diets, I've bought into his approach in a big way over the last 2 years, with great results. Recently I was looking for ways to optimize my diet and fitness pursuits, which actually means addressing some mistakes and shortcuts I have been making. I thought, who ...

Jamie Crane – Profiles In Male Enhancement [PODCAST #592]

Jamie Crane is here to close out the year with a feel-good show and a stroll down memory lane. Today's main topic was intended to be fitness. When I see someone go through a significant personal transformation, I like to know how and why they did it. What changed? What worked? What didn't? When I was visiting Jamie in Oklahoma last year, I assumed he was kidding or embellishing about Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Turns out he was serious and quite committed. But at SSP we offer no prescriptive diet and fitness advice; Jamie tells his story, and I listen skeptically. Here is a resource if you'd like to learn more about the basics of low T: Slideshow: A Visual Guide ...

Michael Malice On Self-Discipline [PODCAST #559]

self-discipline

Michael Malice is an accomplished author, celebrity ghostwriter, Twitter provocateur, podcaster and cable news commentator. He joins me for what begins as a conversation about "health" and fitness practices, but then it evolves into a fascinating exploration of habit and self-discipline. I approached this personal development topic through the lens of fitness because Michael has expressed that the pursuit continues to be a challenge for him. I thought it would be more interesting to discuss a subject where Michael is trying to put the puzzle pieces together, versus one of his areas of expertise (anarchist philosophy, objectivism, North Korea and the New Right). For me, fitness has proven to be the foundation of a better life, and great teacher for ...
