“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.”
Dana Santas, the Mobility Maker, author of “The Practical Solutions for Back Pain Relief”
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 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.”
