Ep. 45 - Mental Health Awareness with the Naked Professor

May 18, 2018

Episode 45 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!

Mental Health Awareness 

We are delighted to welcome back Ben, aka. The Naked Professor. Having been on the podcast already (Ep. 22) and having opened our eyes to the importance of mental health and mindfulness we felt it was only right to get him back on with it being Mental Health Awareness Week. 

We discuss what ‘mental health’ actually means. How do we know when someone is depressed, anxious or mentally unstable? As an outsider what’s the best thing you can do to help someone who is not in a good state of mind? Have any of us suffered from anxiety/depression? 

Why are guys not so good at opening up and talking about it compared to girls? 

Why do we feel it’s so important that it is spoken about more and become less of a taboo subject? 

All this and more in this mind blowingly good episode. Not one to miss!

Episode 44 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!

How to be NEAT and tidy! 

In this episode we discuss one of the easiest and most simple ways of increasing your energy expenditure throughout the day - move more!

What does NEAT stand for and what is it? - Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis is quite simply the energy expended outside of sleeping, eating or sports-like activities. 

We, as a nation do NOT move enough and have become very sedentary leading to all sorts of problems such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, chronic back pain... just to name a few. By simply moving more whenever we get the opportunity we can decrease the likelihood of these problems later on in life. We give you some top tips on how to INCREASE YOUR NEAT!!!

We discuss all the above and more in this thrilling episode (even if we do say so ourselves 💁🏻‍♂💁🏻‍♂💁🏻‍♂)

Please feel free to leave a review. We really appreciate it. Thank you!

Digital fitness - The future or just a fad?

We thought we would delve into the technology side of the industry in today’s episode, looking at the pros and cons of being both a consumer and a producer of online training.

Is the industry moving towards more online training and if so is it the right way to go?

Will anything ever beat that physical face to face time you have with a client?

Is online training the most cost effective way of achieving your goals and living a healthy and prosperous lifestyle?

We cover all the above and lots more in this very current and relatable topic.

Ep 39 - From Drug Kingpin to PT Entrepreneur with Coss Marte live from New York City

March 29, 2018

Episode 39 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!

This weeks episode comes live from Con Body, New York, a personal training studio with a twist. The owner, Coss Marte speaks about his past life behind bars and how he got to where he is today.

Coss’ natural entrepreneurship showed from the young age of 13 when he started selling drugs on his street corner - by the time he was 19 he had had a whole team of dealers working for him and was personally earning himself $2mil per year! This labelled him a ‘drug kingpin’ by the age of 23 before he got arrested and put in prison.

Once locked up, he not only changed his life around by drastically improving his health and fitness, but he conceived an entirely new and original way of getting fit. Although his drug dealing days are well and truly in the past he has now used his business acumen to create something positive and inspiring - ConBody.

If there’s one episode I’d advise you to listen to it’s this one...

Enjoy and spread the word!
