Ditch the Gym: An Expert’s Advice on Getting Fit at Home

For many people, gyms are a convenient way to get into shape. But sometimes, gyms can be quite a scary place where people feel judged, get stared at, and feel self-conscious. Besides, why workout in a sweaty, musty gym when you can train outdoors with fresh air, or in your living room or basement where you don’t have to worry about any weird looks or awkward moments.

Today’s guest, Jon Ham, runs a personal training company called Fitness on the Run, that specializes in training people from within their house and out in the great outdoors.

A Marathon A Day: How One Man Ran 365 Marathons In a Row

Impossible,” is what most people would say. Not Stefaan. After setting a Guinness World Record in 2008 for running 20 long-distance triathlons in a year, he decided in 2010 it was time to step it up even more. Way more… So much more that my body is in pain just thinking about this next sentence:

Stefaan ran a marathon a day for a year straight. 365 marathons. No rest days. No excuses.

Stefaan Engels running

When asked about the experience by a journalist, this is how he described the challenge:

I don’t regard my marathon year as torture. It is more like a regular job. I am running just as Joe Average goes to work on Monday morning, whether or not he feels like it. I don’t always feel like running, but when I am done, I take a shower, have some physiotherapy for an hour and that wraps up my day.

Clockwork. Get up, run, recover, repeat. I can guarantee you that if you show this level of commitment to anything in your life, you’ll be successful, whether it’s diet and exercise, career, finance, or relationships.

Enjoy!

What Layne Norton Can Teach Us About Building Muscle

Alright gym noobs, skinny dudes, hardgainers… Gather ’round.

If you wanted to build as much muscle as possible without using illegal drugs, what would you do?

You could just hit the gym, and make up your own plan from exercises you see the gym rats doing. Uh, good luck…

Or you could buy a bodybuilding magazine, and see how those half-human half-beasts are training, in between their injection sessions in the dark corners of the locker room. Err. Maybe not.

Or even better, you could go to all the forums and websites and read about a million different ways to train, endlessly searching for the program. Well, actually, that might take way too much time.

Wait, I got it.

Layne NortonYou’d ask one of the top natural bodybuilders in the world, who is also a doctor and studies skeletal muscle protein metabolism (getting jacked) for a living.

That’s what we did, and today, we’re sharing that interview with you.

Enter Dr. Layne Norton
