Trainer & Author Focused on Transformative Change

WATCH on YouTube Y'all!

Today I feature Brian Gryn, a trainer and coach who studied with the Integrative Institute of Nutrition and focuses on helping people achieve their best. He is also the host of the Get Lean Eat Clean podcast. Gryn’s book, The Step Ladder System, identifies six steps to lifelong health and vitality: 1) creating clarity; 2) creating small wins and identifying important habits; 3) activity upgrade; 4) sleep like a superhero using a simple evening routine; 5) stress management with a mindful practice; and 6) nutrition and meal timing.

In this episode we discuss his love of golf, the children’s book he wrote to encourage kids to embrace healthy living, why sitting for long periods is problematic and the value of movement. Many of us think we have to do a “real workout” to make fitness gains, and this can backfire when time is running short. So Brian highlights that a quick walk or micro resistance workout not only counts, but is a really important daily routine for physical and mental health. And of course we touch on the value of real, whole nutrient dense foods and creating and sticking to health affirming habits.

In closing, I recommend one of my absolute favorite books, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience. I read it in college and have revisited Flow, the concept of losing oneself in a highly pleasurable experience, several times since.

Hard to believe we’re in Q4, right?!! It’s starting to get spooky out there, which means Thanksgiving feasts are coming and then the gifting begins.
