Bringing the Personal Back to Personal Training with Semaj Hunter

The grind of training and the constant noise of how we "should" be doing things can bog us down as coaches and clinicians. We can lose our way and diverge from the mission we set out on.

Without keeping our authenticity intact, staying on message becomes increasingly difficult, and coaches, our clients are with us for a reason. Staying true to yourself and to them will help you continue to provide the quality service they are seeking.

Thankfully today I have my friend and PT Profit Formula member Semaj Hunter joining me to talk about cutting through all of that to remain authentic. We have a fantastic conversation about remembering who we really are and the importance of treating human beings like humans.

We also discuss why your individuality is worth compensating. As you build your business and market what sets you apart, you should not be afraid to charge for those special s only you can bring your clients.

In addition to fitness, Semaj is a passionate traveller, and we...

How To Optimize Your Health from the Inside Out with Nicole Vienneau

Today I am talking to the incredibly compassionate Nicole Vienneau of Blue Monarch Health. She tells me about being a Registered Nurse and shared her incredible experiences within the world of nursing and fitness. We talked about things happening in our health care system and how she is working hard to close the gap between a hospital nurse who is bound to hospitals' rules and a compassionate nurse that extends a helping hand to those that really need the help. We also talked about how she discovered Nurse Coaching and the potential it has to help prevent and manage chronic illnesses.

Today, Nicole and I dive into:
- Compassion fatigue and burnout.
- Things you can do to prevent or manage chronic illness.
- What clinicians can do to connect with patients.
...and so much more.

It was a pleasure and a privilege getting to talk to Nicole for this episode, and I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed recording it.

Building the Durable Athlete with Cristian Plascencia

Joining me today is Cristian G. Plascencia, co-founder of The Durable Athlete. Currently based out of Austin, Texas, Cristian's experience being a patient at a physical therapy facility led to what is now his life-long passion.

You'll hear us dive into:

Today's episode was a privilege to record, and coaches, it is such a pleasure to share this interview I conducted with Holly Perkins.

Our conversation, however, did not just meet my high hopes and expectations; it blew me away.

Since then, she has transitioned her business entirely to the onIine space. We take a deep dive into the benefits of being a virtual coach and knowing your worth.

Holly & I talk all about:
- How to stay in the game and keep up with what you are doing.
