Samir Becic Shares What’s Wrong With The Way We Work Out
Today we are joined by Samir Becic, originally from Bosnia. Samir was a former fitness director at Bally Total Fitness. He created his own unique fitness approach, the Resync method. He's also founded the Health Fitness Revolution online magazine. During his time at Bally's, he was also named the top fitness trainer in America four times, fitness director of the year twice, and Bally's best fitness trainer. His upcoming book is called Resync Your Life, and in the episode you're going to see that Samir has a ton of energy. He's a total character. He's loud. He's got a lot to say, and a lot of ideas to share. We talk about fitness, we talk about nutrition, we talk about what's wrong with all of the above in Western societies… and then we go into a little bit about mindset and why Samir chose the life path that he did.
