Ben was born with the genetic illness Cystic Fibrosis and made the choice a long time ago to use his ‘weakness’ as a strength. Better known as the Ben ‘Thor’ Mudge (he looks just like the muscular god Thor), we talk about how a conversation with a Dothraki (he worked on Season 1 of Game of Thrones) led him to work in fitness. If you want to know how to use your ‘weakness’ as a strength and how to give your problems all the time they need and no more, this is a must listen!

Former Kerry football star Paul Galvin joined me for today’s awesome podcast. We talked everything from how he uses Irish culture to tell stories through his clothing line, how playing on arguably one of the greatest teams of all time makes you physically and mentally stronger to making real connections with people and minimizing time on your phone and not letting your ego take control when making decisions. Mindset knowledge bombs galore in this one!
Paul is one of my best friends in this world and you may have heard me mention him on the podcast in the business (as one of my inner circle) so I’m so excited to have him on the podcast to talk all things business, fitness and life. Paul came through my mentorship program and over the last two years has gone from working full times in a bookies to being one of the most successful 1:1 personal trainer in the country to now moving his business online and working with clients from Spain. We completely ebbed and flowed on this episode and talked everything from business and personal training to suffocating excuses and attacking the things you’re afraid of. This was absolute fire! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Dr Hazel Wallace is the girl behind the food medic and is very much spearheading the new generations of doctors that encourages her patients to think outside the pillbox and manage their health through their nutrition, fitness and sleep.
Hazel is so incredibly knowledgeable and I LOVE her message. We also got into her new book ‘The Food Medic For Life’ (which has hit the bestseller list everywhere its been released). I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did!
Similar to the first time Ross was on the podcast (episode #114), we just caught up about everything since we last talked (he’s since swam nearly 100km in the Caribbean). We also went through everything from his new book ‘The World’s Fittest Book’. As always, Ross just dropped fitness, training and nutrition bombs galore!!! I hope you enjoy this episode as much I enjoyed recording it.
From 18 months of training to surviving a boat capsize and coming face to face with a whale, this episode was one of the most inspiring things I’ve ever heard. You cannot miss this one!
