I’m often asked about how to make time for fitness when life gets in the way. It’s an especially common question from new parents looking for tips on getting fit or maintaining fitness. Life can be especially hectic for new parents and your health and gym time often take a backseat when your schedule feels out of control. So, this podcast is chockfull of practical tips for staying healthy, rested, and in shape not just as a parent, but as a busy person in general. 

I’m interviewing Ben Coomber, who’s not only a fitness professional, coach, nutritionist, educator, and father, but also a podcaster, motivational speaker, and all-around driven guy who runs several of his own businesses. He also just wrote a book that offers a step-by-step formula for transforming your life and finding more fulfillment and success regardless of how busy you are.

Ben first appeared on my podcast in 2015, and in his triumphant return, we discuss . . .

  • His new book How to Live an Awesome Life and what he felt he could uniquely contribute to the self-help genre
  • The importance of making time for yourself and finding inspiration
  • Navigating family, a demanding job, and your own health
  • His experience with long covid
  • Why it’s necessary to adjust your fitness expectations after having kids
  • Tips for meal prepping with young children
  • Dealing with sub-optimal sleep
  • And more . . .
