Congratulations on the big announcement. I hope it gets your show out to an even larger audience.
Thank you very much Krista…I really appreciate it! And CONGRATS on turning your health around! I’m happy to hear you’re enjoying your workouts and no longer need to “force” yourself to workout. (Once training and eating healthy becomes part of your everyday LIFESTYLE – as opposed to a dreaded “job” – THAT’S when the REAL success begins – both in the gym and in your LIFE!) Congrats again! We’re proud to have people like you as part of the DeFranco Insider community!
Hi Joe- Thank you so much for this podcast. I’ve been listening to your podcasts since they began, researched your previous articles, and became an Insider, learning so much. Through what I’ve learned from you, I’m finally turning my health around. I used to force myself to do cardio, hating life, but now I’m finding myself looking forward to my workouts and prioritizing my health and nutrition (with some help from Onnit.) This episode, as you can imagine, was particularly useful. Wishing you a happy podcast birthday next week, and congratulations on your big announcement. I’m excited for you –you deserve it!
