127 How To Get & Stay Fit w/ Joey Wolfe

For our first episode this year 2020, we hang out with professional athlete fitness trainer and founder of Paradigm Sport in Santa Cruz, CA, Joey Wolfe.

Today we go beyond all of 7-minute abs BS, get fit quick, scams and shams and have a real, different conversation about making fitness and wellness stick in your life.

Trainer of Champions and Weekend Warriors

The last time Joey Wolfe had a conversation with Christopher was a year ago. Joey’s episode remains one of our most popular ever.  We’re definitely sure, listeners will get practical ideas for well-being improvement,

He has trained superstar athletes like Mitch Haniger of the Seattle Mariners. Additionally, he has worked with former UFC champion Luke Rockhold.  World Surf League rookie of the year Nat Young and a lot of regular weekend warrior type like us have trained with him.

“We all know what to do. We all know that going and exercising in the gym for a min of 30 min is a good thing. But for a lot of people, there’s something preventing them from doing that. So just try to get clear on what their motivating factor is” – Joey Wolfe

New Year’s Resolutions and Diet Crazes

One of the reasons why people hit the gym is its part of their New Year’s resolution. Joey says that although it is a good reason, it doesn’t qualify as a great one as it cannot s sustain through the rest of the years.

“Just getting clear what their goals are and then, really trying to start off easy with their habit change. Trying to get them to do something that I know they’re gonna be successful with.” – Joey Wolfe

He also shares how he tried intermittent fasting, keto, paleo diet, vegan, blood typing diet and what works faster, what works slower and what doesn’t work at all. 

“Try to educate yourself on this stuff and then try it. Everybody is different. There are polarizing ideas in terms of what’s right and even someone like me in the health and fitness profession,  its hard to know what’s right.” – Joey Wolfe

Recommendations and What Nots

Christopher loves Joey’s POV that everyone is an athlete. We all have an athlete inside us.  Designing a legendary life entails being active, fit and healthy. With this said, he shares how athletes and weekend warriors alike can follow the same set of principles for fitness and health.

Joey shares adding more habits is better than removing some. He says there is science behind developing habits. For example, it is better to drink more water, take more protein, add more supplements, among others, rather than cutting down sugar and carbs.
