What does it mean to be a ‘real man’ in 2016? It used to mean you were big, strong, and gave zero fucks about anyone’s feelings, let alone your own. 

Today’s man is quite a bit different. Sure he goes to the gym and lifts heavy stuff. He’s strong. He’s tough. But he also meditates, eats organic food, and is committed to being healthy in mind, body, and spirit. 

Our guest Ryan Munsey is a perfect example of the new paradigm of a modern, masculine man. In this episode, we trace his journey from gym rat to health and fitness expert and industry leader. 

If you’re a man, this episode is a rich source of life hacks and practical recommendations. If you’re a woman, it hopefully serves as an inspiring example of what is possible when a guy commits himself to personal development and balance. 

Do you know someone who needs some coaching to up-level their energy and overall performance? Be a good friend.  Share this episode with them. 

Thanks for joining me on this never-ending journey of self-discovery.
