Episode 40 - The 3 Dumbbells is now live!!!
Is your routine holding you back???
In our 40th episode, we flip a hot topic of discussion on its head and look at someone’s routine from a totally different angle
We are huge advocates of building a decent routine and developing daily habits that will benefit your lives... however, are those habits and rituals holding you back and making you miss out on social situations that may otherwise keep you sane???
We discuss all this and more in our Ruby anniversary (40 episodes not 40 years) of the podcast... imagine listening to us for 40 years..? 😴😴😴
We also answer some of your fantastic questions that some of you have so kindly sent in.

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!

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!

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..?
