Ep. 35 - Running the World with Max Willcocks

February 23, 2018
Episode 35 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!
How far can you run? Bet you can’t run as far as this guy..! 
Max Willcocks is on the show! Max puts the ‘run’ in ‘brunch’, he has the stamina of a Siberian Ox (do they even exist?) and the composure of Cristiano Ronaldo 10 yards out. 
Ex professional rugby player turned ultra marathon runner, Max is a man who won’t shy away from a challenge. He holds the record for the furthest distance ran on a treadmill for 12 hours straight (he didn’t once get off to take the browns to the super bowl or to empty the hose) and managed a ridiculous 93 miles!
I don’t think I could even drive 93 miles without needing a pit stop and a quick pasty from Greggs...
Max explains his mental and physical toughness and how and why he got into ‘ridiculously long distance running’ (I think that’s the correct term for it 🤔
If you like running this episode is for you! 
And even if you don’t, just listen to it! 

Ep.34 - Male Body Confidence

February 16, 2018
Episode 34 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!
‘Male body confidence’
What do you think of when those words are mentioned?
▪six packs?
▪muscular lean physiques?
▪huge biceps?
Well it certainly can be all the above, but it’s so much more than that.
In this episode we discuss male body confidence and why it’s not really spoken about for all sorts of reasons...
Why are men so closed when it comes to emoting, giving each other compliments and opening up about how they really feel??? Is it because we think it’s a sign of weakness or just a feminine thing to do..?
All this and more in today’s episode. Be sure to tune in and spread the word!

Ep. 33 - So you think you’ve got it tough?? Jaw-dropping stories from an Ex Royal Marine Commando - Dean Vallis

February 9, 2018
Episode 33 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!
The one and only Dean Vallis is in the show! Ex Royal Marine Commando, high flying Personal Trainer, about to head up F45 Bondi over in Australia and all round legend. It was a real honour having him on the show.
We sit back and take it all in. From his jaw dropping stories to his mental toughness, this is an episode that will have you on the edge of your seat.
He has a mindset like no other and it’s certainly given us a different perspective on life. Stop complaining about the fact that your local Co op has run out of roasted red pepper hummus and look at the bigger picture...
Will your perspective be altered after listening to this episode..?

Episode 30 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!
In this knockout episode we are graced with the company of the one and only Ian Streetz. Despite being an Aussie, he’s actually quite a sound guy and not one to mess with. 👊🏼 He floats like a moth and stings like a wasp (I think that’s the saying).

A true gent and a real honour to have him on our show.

Ep. 28 - Why 2018 is going to be your best year yet!

January 5, 2018
Episode 28 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!
New year, new goals... new you?
Often a new year spells the pressure of giving yourself New Years resolutions..
How often do you hear people saying “oooooo what are your New Years resolutions???” We hear it A LOT!
Having goals and targets for the year ahead are GREAT and we 100% recommend you do, but don’t feel pressurised into doing something you don’t necessarily want to do or think will benefit you in any way. Just because your mate is doing ‘veganveggypaleoketoskipbreakfastanuary’ doesn’t mean you have to as well!
If you love carbs wrapped in bacon, have your carbs wrapped in bacon and don’t let anyone deny you of that.
We talk about realistic goal setting, improving your current routine and daily regimes to better you as a person and make 2018 the most productive, rewarding and successful year yet!
This is an episode not to be missed!

In our final episode of 2017 we discuss how far we’ve come this year and how it all began. We cannot thank you all enough for all your kind words and amazing reviews! Without you guys we would just be three guys talking to ourselves huddled around a mic...
It has been an epic 6 months and to think we’re closing in on 40,000 downloads is mind blowing! We’ve had 8 awesome guests (who we have learnt A LOT from), trained 3 competition winners, done a workout with FitBit, been invited to Ireland to speak at Wellfest in May next year, as well as having some incredible guests lined up for 2018. It’s going to be a fun year with some great things lined up for you to get involved with.

Ep. 26 - Life Analogies, Mulled Wine and Christmas with FaFitsake

December 22, 2017

Episode 26 of The 3 DumbBells now live!

This week we were delighted to have a top bloke and very good friend of ours - Lawrence Price aka FaFitsake on our show for our Christmas Special!

Lawrence has been in the game for over a decade now and is still doing what he loves whether it be training clients 1-2-1, getting beasted at ActiveMan events or writing songs for The 3 DumbBells (you’re in for a treat). It was awesome having another PT on the show where we could all discuss our different view points on how the industry is changing and what we’ve learned during our time so far. From cutting oranges to ripples in a pond the analogies used by Lawrence show off his philosophical prowess (and age) that all PTs could certainly learn a lesson or two from!

For us 3 Lawrence encompasses everything that’s right with the fitness industry and we truly believe that the industry needs more people like him!

Pour yourself a glass of mulled wine (we certainly did) and enjoy the ramblings of 4 PTs having a Christmas giggle.

Merry Christmas!
