choosing your problems

Episode 148 of the Fit Father Project Podcast is all about choosing your problems and how to change your mindset to change your life.

In this episode, you’ll meet Fit Father Michael, a busy father of six with a lot going on, and like so many of us, that hectic lifestyle led to neglected health and fitness.

He knew he needed to change, but his wake-up call came when he saw a picture of himself that drove him crazy. Following that, he took a deep look at his family’s health history and knew it was time to take action.

And did he ever take action! With the help of our Fit Father 30X (FF30X) program, he’s lost over 45 pounds and gotten stronger and more energetic. 

He went from downing brownies and multiple energy drinks just to get through the day, to having an incredible internal energy, motivation, and drive. 

When you hear Michael’s story, you’ll learn how the mind and the body are so intimately connected. When the body is out of shape, the mind ends up feeling more negative, pessimistic, and depressed.

When the body gets in shape, the mindset starts to come along with it, and that’s when everything starts changing for the better. Being your best self translates to more goodness for everyone around you. 

So, if you’re in a position of leadership in your family, job, or anywhere else, you’ve got to listen to this fantastic conversation!

In this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • How Michael finally got started — and how you can too.
  • The importance of sustainability in everything you do.
  • Fitting health and fitness into any busy schedule. 
  • Getting your family on board with healthy living.
  • Staying motivated and focused as you traverse your health journey.
  • And so much more!

So, if you want to get the most from your health and fitness efforts, listen to this episode on choosing your problems, take some notes, and check out FF30X!
