Deep Questions from Intern Jeff Li

Today’s podcast episode with intern Jeff Li took an interesting twist and turn when Jeff asked me some deep questions that went way beyond training. It includes not only the favorite types of clients that I train, but Jeff also asks how I keep motivated, how I found my calling, and how my faith has played a significant role in making me who I am today. 

Be sure to listen to this episode as I know you will get great value from it. If you need more energy, positivity, and soul today, this is the episode you’re gonna want to listen to.

Jeff’s Questions:

  1. What type of clients are your favorite to train? (Pro athletes? High School Athletes? Weekend Warriors? etc.) and Why?
  2. How did you find your calling? How did you know this is what you wanted to do?
  3. What keeps you motivated?  How do you continue to function with the same energy levels? (Especially with COVID19).
  4. How has your style of training developed (or stayed the same) as you gained more experience? 
  5. How has your faith played a role in making you the person you are today?
