Dai "Coach Moose" Manuel is an incredible entrepreneur, professional blogger, author of the newly released The Whole Life Fitness Manifesto, freelance writer, lifestyle coach, sought after speaker, fitness guru, and one stellar podcast guest!

However, Dai wasn't always such a stud, and he'll be the first to admit that. His journey from couch potato to fitness freak did not happen overnight, and it's this experience that he calls upon to improve and motivate every person he meets.  

His lifestyle and coaching methodology revolves around 5 pillars: Fitness, Family, Finances, and Faith, all with an all-encompassing concept of FUN! In this episode we dive deeper into each one of these pillars and how you can apply these to your life. 

We also cover a lot of ground in this conversation, as a moose should. We tackle topics such as, but definitely not limited to:

  • Dai's personal story from spud to STUD
  • The Secret Dai gives his clients for continued motivation and inspiration
  • How to become physically, mentally, and spiritually more fit in just 30 mintues per day
  • The benefits of waking up at 5 AM everyday
  • How to throw out the clock and forget managing time
  • Dai's key to ending all wars (the answer may suprise you!)
  • And how to run 13.1 miles in Jesus sandals through the Holy Land

Dai was an absolute blast to interview. Connect with him in person if you get the chance. You will not regret it!

He is holding his Whole Life Fitness Manifesto Retreat on May 27 - June 1 at the Hollyhock Center. You can also find him at the Superhuman Summit May 2-3 in Vancouver. 

You can virtually connect with Dai and join his Tribe as they tackle the next 28 Day WLFM Challenge, where Dai will forge you into a stronger version of yourself in body, mind, and spirit. 

Lastly, find out more about the man, the myth, the legend that is Dai Manuel at the links below.

Meet Andy Hnilo. Even if you haven't actually met the man, you probably recognize his rugged jaw line.

Andy was born with competitor's blood running through his veins, which eventually led him to play baseball at UC Berkeley. This competitive lifestyle and mindset would later serve him well in life and in business. 

Once his baseball career ended he found himself in front of the camera as a model for Oakley, Coppertone, and Speedo. Andy has had appearances on shows such as Days of our Lives and HBO's Hello Ladies. 

A tragic accident left with him several broken ribs, a collapsed lung, a broken jaw wired back together, a severe gash on his chin, and a whole host of other problems that come with being hit by one truck and run over by another SUV! 

It is this incident that changed Andy's life and career forever. Being a self-taught supplement and nutrition expert, he focused all of his effort on creating a facial mask that helped restore, rejuvenate, and accelerate his healing process in the most natural fashion possible. 

The outcome was his all-natural, superior sourced Alitura Naturals. Are you intrigued yet?! 

In this episode we chat with Andy about: 

  • His incredible personal story and the birth of Alitura Naturals
  • Protecting your brand
  • Owning bad reviews and turning them into something positive 
  • The highs and lows of owning a growing business
  • Nurturing an entrepreneurial spirit and how to never lose that fire
  • Self-education versus the standard higher education
  • Growing your business and taking steps to reach the next echelon
  • His personal routines to stay looking 22 years young

..... and of course just a ton of other good bull too long to list!

This conversation with Andy was exhilarating, motivating, and gave us a healthy dose of the goosebumps because our messages are very similar in terms of our passion to positively affect others through our companies. 

Get ready to gain a new perspective on your own life and business and let Andy's passion and love for his work overflow into all areas of your life. Lastly, try out the line of his superior products and find out more about the man that is Andy Hnilo with the links below. 

Enjoy!

Meet Shahin Naghavi: a chronic entrepreneur (seriously, he has a problem!), real estate mogul, venture capitalist, owner of the largest Crossfit gym in Texas, and creator of arguably one of the most successful fitness models to date. All this and more has made Shahin the self-proclaimed "poorest, rich man you will ever meet." 

After every encounter with Shahin, we leave with more inspiration, motivation, and new ideas. We start to ask more from ourselves. We begin wondering, future-seeking, and asking "what if" a whole lot more. It's as if he taps into the entrepreneurial spirit in us all. 

And we believe this conversation with Shahin will have the same effect on you!

In this leisurely, yet perceptive conversation with Shahin we cover plenty of ground including: 

  • Shahin's personal journey as an entrepreneur
  • His creative process that keeps him ahead of the competition
  • How he cultivates a company culture that acts as "a bar without the alcohol"
  • Balancing managing his business versus his business managing him
  • How to properly and effectively use intuition as a tool in business and life
  • The future of Crossfit and what this means for box owners
  • The sport of Crossfit's trickle down effect on affiliates
  • And the ONE thing Shahin does differently than everyone else in the world!

He is a man with many layers and we were lucky enough to spend some time deconstructing the man that is Shahin Naghavi. Swing by and see him at Texas Strength, Crossfit EADO, Madison Fine Properties, or connect with him at any of the links below! Enjoy!
