BJ Gaddour on Bringing Intelligent Fitness to the Masses

BJ is a guy I’ve known for years. Between our time speaking together at the Elite Fitness Workshops, to collaborating together on his StreamFit project, he’s a guy I’ve got a ton of respect for and who really tries to bring great information to the masses.

In this show, BJ and I talk about how an econ major started slanging training programs for $100 a piece in college, the simple advice he gives to someone who wants to get in shape, once and for all, and what he means when he says that consistency is the most anabolic substance on the planet.
