Released Wednesday, 25th January 2017
Good episode? Give it some love!
Brad Kearns chats with Ryan Hurst, GMB Fitness Founder and the action man behind the wildly popular GMB Fitness online bodyweight exercise program. A former martial artist and longtime resident of Japan, Ryan brings a gentle, evolved approach to fitness that is beautifully evident in this interesting interview. Expand your perspective about fitness and goal-setting with Ryan's gentle touch. Ask your body what it has to deliver each day and don't push beyond what you are capable of on that day--patience and discipline will get you from wound tight to doing the splits in only a year.
In sharp contrast to a “get-shredded-at-all-costs” message that dominates much of the fitness world, the GMB method appeals to a broad audience of people who want to overcome the challenges of getting older, expand their mobility and prevent injury, and experience physical autonomy and freedom in their daily lives. Check out GMB’s free bodyweight exercise circuit to find out more about the featured ‘assessments’ in the interview -  like the Bear, Monkey, and Frogger. The interview concludes on some fun, interesting tangents like the cultural differences between USA and Japan. In conclusion, Ryan reminds us to move more each day, do little things to improve health, and strive to improve a bit each day instead of be a hero and crush occasional brutal workouts.
