I love the fact that after almost 13 years of doing DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training we can bring you some of the most interesting, honest, and great people in the fitness and health industries. We don’t have to worry about bringing you people with giant email lists in hope we can cross promote, rather, the wonderful people we get to meet and find so intriguing ourselves we want to bring your attention to as well.
Leslie Schilling is a great example of that! I’ve stayed away from nutrition talk because it is so emotional and such a giant subject. When I met Leslie and her husband, Brian, I became so intrigued in so much more than macros, keto, paleo, or whatever. Hearing Leslie’s unique perspective on nutrition behavior was absolutely fascinating and I found myself getting mad at myself.
If I knew some of the information Leslie is sharing with us today when I was training clients on an every day basis I think I would have been able to help WAY more people.
