“Know where the goal is, then we can create a plan to get there.”—Michael Stromsness
Many of us want to get into shape or lose weight but, despite our best efforts, we often get off track or even give up altogether. In this episode, Brian interviews his personal trainer, Michael Stromsness, and reveals the secrets of his fitness journey. The founder and owner of Neutrility Gym and a trained chiropractor, Michael explains why building a strong foundation, discovering the ‘why’ behind your goals, and putting a solid plan in place are the keys to success.
Brian also reveals how untreated sports injuries led to a cycle of discouragement, how the unique Triple R system recalibrated his beliefs about exercise, and why being fit helps him physically, emotionally, and mentally.
