Stop & Give Me 20 Podcast | 20 minute interviews with the Fitness World's Top Trainers and Strength Coaches

The Stop and Give Me 20 Podcast features 20 minute interviews with some of the World's Top Fitness Professionals. Each show will start with their story of what led them into a fitness lifestyle; the spark that fueled their passion to help change lives through their fitness. It moves into the "Superhero Section", where the conversation moves into 1) Who their biggest influences were growing up and who their real life Superhero was. 2) Who their Superhero is now- who in the world they look up to and who they are trying to emulate, and 3) Who they want to be Superheros to with their message. We discuss their opinions on what is happening in the fitness industry, good and bad, and where they might think it’s going. We find out some of the books they are reading and seminars they are attending and what their takeaways are. At some point in the show we do the "Stop & Give Me 5" segment, and that’s basically 5 rapid fire questions (not always rapid fire answers). It’s a fun segment that we are really trying to make personal to them and so far we have had a good time with it. I finish each show with a "Letter to Your Younger Self", where guests are asked to give their younger self advice.

Interviews with the World's Top Fitness Professionals

This is our temporary home until we get the website up and running.

The Stop and Give Me 20 Podcast features 20 minute interviews with some of the World's Top Fitness Professionals.  Each show will start with their story of what led them into a fitness lifestyle; the spark that fueled their passion to help change lives through their fitness.


It moves into the "Superhero Section", where the conversation moves into 1) Who their biggest influences were growing up and who their real life Superhero was,  2) Who their Superhero is now- who in the world they look up to and who they are trying to emulate, and 3) Who they want to be Superheros to with their message.

We discuss their opinions on what is happening in the fitness industry, good and bad, and where they might think it’s going.  We find out some of the books they are reading and seminars they are attending and what their takeaways are.

At some point in the show we do the "Stop & Give Me 5" segment, and that’s basically 5 rapid fire questions (not always rapid fire answers).  It’s a fun segment that we are really trying to make personal to them and so far we have had a good time with it.

We finish each show with a "Letter to Your Younger Self", where guests are asked to give their younger self advice.

“After my husband died, I’m trying to reach out to those individuals who don’t think about heart disease or that chance of having a heart attack.”

“People need to understand that the signs and symptoms (for heart disease) vary drastically, not only between men and women, but people in general.”

“I would tell myself to love harder…we get so wrapped up in everything going on with the day to day we just thought that was normal…You need to put each other first, make time for each other."

"I wasn't interested in playing with dolls. I would practice for hours throwing the football, dribbling the basketball and puck handling.  I knew I had to be good if the boys were going to let me play."

"My treat was the cement filled weights."

“I’m just trying to be a positive role model for the athletes at Revolution and the goalies that we train online. Give them the tools to be an amazing athletes but at the same time show them how to be a quality human beings.”

“That’s the biggest thing I see missing [with female athletes]…they’re not doing pull ups because they haven’t been trained to be strong.”

“I didn’t make these big changes until I was in my late 30’s… It’s not too late to change and you can become that person you want to be.”

“Figure out what makes your happy and design your business around that… I don’t think anyone’s goal and dream is to work 18 hours a day and be super stressed out all the time, but that’s how most people exist.”

“80% of your results are going to come from 20% of your efforts, so you can stop doing 80% of your stuff.”

“It can become dangerous when certain fitness professionals who are down only one “rabbit hole” become so defensive about that and are not open to anything else.”

“You have no idea how much 30 seconds of showing genuine interest, especially in a child, what that might do. That might change their whole life.”

“(When it comes to reaching people) It’s more about listening and responding thoughtfully as opposed to telling them what you think they want to hear.”

We might discuss their opinions on what is happening in the fitness industry, good and bad, and where they might think it’s going.  Sometimes we find out some of the books they are reading and seminars they are attending and what their takeaways are.

At some point in the show we always do the "Stop & Give Me 5" segment, and that’s basically 5 rapid fire questions (not always rapid fire answers).  It’s a fun segment that we make personal to them to try to get an inside look about some of the things that they are interested in.

We finish each show with a "Letter to Your Younger Self", where guests are asked to give their younger self advice.

“When it comes to work-life balance, It’s not a balance. That’s why people can’t find it. It’s actually called Work-Life Mastery. A balance implies that you’re going to have an equal weighting, and you’re not. As an entrepreneur you’re not going to have an equal weighting…you’re going to have great sacrifice.”

“I love the Les Brown quote, "The graveyard is the richest place in the world because that’s where so many hopes and dreams have gone to the grave unfulfilled.” 

“Starting your day with a 15-90 minute block of deep work with no distractions is the best thing entrepreneurs can do to make everything else easier or better for your business. If you can get that victory early in the day, the rest of the day can go to heck in a hand basket.”

"I was 8 years old, and we had a little chunk of money so my brothers and I went to a very high end department store called Sears...  We bought the Ted Williams Barbell Set. My goal was to pick up that barbell with the 2 big 10 pounders on it!" Dan John

"From the fitness perspective, if we go back a little, Europe was more scholarly, more researched based while North America was more practical. With the world being smaller, and information being so accessible, that is starting to change."
