What’s up everybody?
This post will kick off a new segment of my blog: at the end of every month I will send out links to all the interesting podcasts, books, documentaries, articles, music, movies, and performances that I checked out throughout the previous 4 weeks and that inspired me in some way, shape or form.
I’ve been doing this for my clients via email the last few months, and I thought that it would be cool to share this stuff with all of you as well.
One of the characteristics that I feel distinguishes me from others in the health and fitness industry is that I have a very broad definition of “wellness.”
This past weekend, I was listening to a “Beats 1” Podcast that featured one of my favorite young Hip-Hop artists, Joey Badass.
Joey just released his second full length LP, entitled “Amerikkkan Badass” – if you haven’t heard this album, it is absolutely amazing, and I highly recommend giving it a thorough listen.
The music is uplifting, inspirational, and delivers a stinging social commentary on the current state of our Union as it pertains to social justice and race relations.
One of the great things about my line of business is that I get to work on a personal level with folks from all walks of life.
While the majority of my time is spent instructing and making sure exercises are done correctly, I do take the time to engage my clients in conversation about their lives and thoughts on a variety of issues.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best :
“In my walks, every man I meet is my superior in some way, and in that I learn from him.”
