Hard questions. Simple Answers.

The state of the world around us is mirrored in the state of our health and fitness.

For too long, the fitness industry has made being fit seemingly unattainable by all but an elite few who possess some top secret answers. 

This overcomplication of health has meant skipping over the simple truths and building walls around the knowledge that we all deserve access to.

The result?

The world just keeps getting sicker (both literally and metaphorically).

We are here to propose an alternative path. One that puts you in control.

You see, the health of our country starts with you. As an individual, you have the power to assume ownership of your own fitness, seek knowledge, take action and change this trajectory.

A healthy America needs healthy cities. Healthy cities need healthy communities. Healthy communities need healthy families. And healthy families need healthy individuals.

Physical fitness is a medium for each and every one of us to be able to contribute at our highest capacities. Without our health we have nothing, and we weaken the fabric of our society.

To live a meaningful life—one that celebrates and honors the freedoms we have in our great nation—we must each decide to strive towards vitality by going back to the basics of exercise, nutrition, and behavior.

On the Live a Larger Life show, you’ll get the honest fitness and health knowledge you need to take ownership of your life and start paying it forward, starting with those around you.

Our purpose is to simplify, to put our stake in the ground, to create a vitality north star for us all, one that we can all get behind as a country to become healthier versions of ourselves. We will look at and challenge what we see in American values and culture, examining how current events at their very core are deeply relevant to you and your personal quest towards health and vitality. 

The time for shifting blame is over. It’s time for us all to stand up, take personal responsibility, and live a larger life.

Join us as we all find true freedom in fitness.

Meet your hosts...
