Living up to the name.
This week we are thrilled to host former MMA champ and current Training Director of popular training resource, Gym Jones, Rob MacDonald. As if being on the 2005-2006 season of The Ultimate Fighter wasn't noteworthy enough, "Maximus" as he's known in some circles, jumped headfirst into his passion of strength and conditioning by forging his way with Gym Jones founder, Mark Twight.
Rob knows first hand that when it comes to developing a culture that supports your brand, you trust your instincts and make no apologies. The crew discusses just how important it is to embody the spirit and ethos of the product, regardless of what it is. The agreement is unanimous: it's not possible to learn everything there is to know about a training philosophy in one weekend. This leads us to our next question, "What's it like to attend a Gym Jones seminar?"
When you're a successful business operator like Rob, you have no inhibitions about turning people away that don't work hard enough. This is the luxury he maintains and is also the reason he guarantees that in his gym at any given time, someone is working harder than you.
Other points of discussion in this episode include why superfood is marketing bullshit, why Rob's kid has most test than your average adult male, and what drives Rob to train day in and day out.
Finally, Professor Booty, provides the science to support his recent rebuttal to the "Dad Bod" wave, giving the ultimate "GFY" to proponents of this unhealthy trend. Could there be a more effective form of shittalking than solid scientific research? I think not.
EMPOWER YOUR PERFORMANCE.
