This one has been a long time coming! We’re so excited that one of the benefits of lockdown was that we managed to get our podcast schedule to sync up with one of the leaders in alternative, back to basics, health and fitness, one of the world’s busiest men and absolute legend, Andrew Tracey.
Not only does Andrew run his own events company, he’s also the fitness editor at Men’s Health and works out like a machine… but not in a gym or simply at home like the rest of us. Andrew’s busy life has developed a passion and drive to develop ways to train and ‘get it done’ in the most unlikely ways and locations. We love his ethos and attitude towards it.
He shares his story of how, after falling out of love with health and fitness, his organic journey has brought him to where he is today. A story which fascinated and inspired us, made us change some of our training volumes and intensities and we’re sure it will have a big impact on you too.
In particular, Andrew talks about the idea that you are not your gym membership, that relying on a gym or health club to solve your fitness problems, at all times, could become a liability.
You’re outsourcing your health and fitness to an entity that isn’t entirely in your control and has a potentially small window of availability.
This ethos, is something we can relate to – life happens and having the mindset that a workout is only a workout if it’s an hour long at a gym three or four times a week, has seriously been challenged the past few year for us and even more so during lockdown due to corona virus.
