Good episode? Give it some love!
Hey, what’s going on, Goal Getters?

Welcome back to another exhilarating episode of the Daily New Year’s podcast. Exhilarating is a strong word, but I practically guarantee that this episode lives up to the hype. Today I’m connecting with Dai Manuel, a fitness coach affectionately known to his clients and friends as, “The Moose.”

Dai is someone who has walked his talk. As an obese child, Dai decided to change his life forever and at the age of 15, he started making big, impactful changes in his life. He worked hard, got fit and healthy, and he’s been helping people do the same ever since.

Today, he’s passionate about engaging and challenging people to live healthier, more active lifestyles through his group fitness sessions, keynote speeches, one-on-one coaching, and more and he joins us now from Canada.

Get ready for some energy, because he’s bringing in this episode of the podcast. Let’s go!
