This is my story. There was a time when I didn’t think that my story mattered. There was a time when I didn’t think that I mattered… Today I’m sharing the story of how I was able to breakthrough mind, body, and spirit, and how you can too.

Many things that I’m sharing in this episode I haven’t shared publicly before. It wasn’t the easiest thing to talk about at some points, but if anyone can glean some wisdom or insight from it then I’d do it all over again 100 times.

I ask that you share this episode with someone you care about who may be in a place of struggle. Whether it’s with their health, their relationship, their finances, or anything else, I truly feel that this will be a much needed gift to help them see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Mike Dolce is a game-changer.

He has helped athletes go from good to great for years, but what he’s doing to the face of sports performance is legendary.

We all know that our society looks to athletes as a hallmark of what health and fitness should look like. The problem is that for decades top athletes have allowed their likeness to be slapped onto sports drinks, energy bars, breakfast cereals and other processed junk that is clinically proven to cause things like blood sugar disorders, gut dysbiosis, allergies, mineral deficiencies, and even obesity.

The athletes we admire as a society often train for hours a day, yet the foods they recommend are mostly consumed by people with a sedentary lifestyle and, even worse, young children.

Mike has ushered in a brand new approach to fitness and nutrition that’s based on earth-grown nutrients and real food. His athletes dominate their sport and also dominate the headlines (maybe you’ve heard of Rowdy Ronda Rousey?), which is making the rest of the world take note in a major way and making The Dolce Diet become a household name.

Mike’s approach and passion are helping us to move out of the junk food and supplement dark ages and into the golden age of real food and true longevity. Find out what Mike’s tried-and-true approach to nutrition and exercise is, and the incredible story of how this legendary trainer got his start in the first place.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • What unique achievements Mike Dolce brings to MMA and why his mission is far bigger than the world of athletics.
  • The incredible story of what inspired Mike to get into health and fitness in the first place.
  • What Mike’s foundational approach to nutrition is.
  • What category of food is extremely difficult to overeat.
  • Whether or not counting calories is vital to your success.
  • How food manufacturer’s have been able to override our body’s natural satiety mechanism and make us eat more (this is crazy!)
  • Why The Dolce Diet puts such a large focus on longevity.
  • Why Mike cuts weight right alongside his athlete’s (this puts him in a league of his own!)
  • What the Mike Dolce Breakfast Bowl is and why it’s so popular.
  • Why being warm and friendly is a conscious part of Mike’s health practice.
  • What specific benchmarks everyone should strive to achieve in their exercise.
  • Why Mike does “progressive overload” and how it can work to improve your performance.

It’s not often that you meet someone like Steph Gaudreau.

After leaving a comfy job teaching high school science to pursue her passions in health and fitness, she’s one of the rare individuals who set out to reinvent themselves after you’d think that it was too late.

That’s the big issue. It’s the thinking involved that hinders so many of us. Steph didn’t make the leap without having fear. She didn’t take a huge risk knowing exactly what was going to happen. Fear was there, uncertainty was there, but she made the decision to do it anyway.

All of the changes in our lives start with a decision. It’s up to us to take control of our thinking and make the necessary adjustments we want to see in our lives. Whether it’s in our health, career, relationships, or anything else, it’s within our power to make the shifts necessary. And one of the interesting things Steph believes is that getting physically strong will make you mentally strong as well. Today you’re going to learn exactly what she means by that plus a whole lot more.

Today you’re going to hear about Steph’s story and how she made the transition from the conventional classroom to teaching online (and all over the world). You’re also going to learn some of the key insights that has enabled Steph to be so successful in helping other people, as well what her person fitness regimen looks like so you can see what keeps her fit, strong, and huge inspiration to others.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • What drove Steph Gaudreau to leave her 10+ year job as a science teacher to start a solo career promoting health and fitness.
  • How certain body types lend themselves towards better performance in certain sports.
  • Why Steph no longer obsesses about the way her body looks (this is powerful!)
  • How doing what you love will help to change your inner dialogue/inner critic.
  • Why your body’s form will follow the function that’s required of it.
  • Why the exercise that you do transfers over into other areas of your life.
  • How your personality gains strength through lifting weights.
  • What crazy good numbers Steph has achieved on her favorite power lifts.
  • Why deadlifting is important for reversing and preventing back problems.
  • How Steph’s exercise program has changed over time and what it looks like today.
  • Why being “harder to kill” is a compelling drive to get healthier.
  • Why food is a “gateway” to a healthier overall lifestyle.
