Screw It Just Do It with Alex Chisnall

Jul 24, 2019

"June 27th of June 2013. For months we had been talking about when we would launch. I phoned Stuart and said 'Time's up. We're going.' I set up a PayPal link, put a post out on social media and to our email list saying this is the product, this is the secret. Literally within two hours we'd sold about £12,000 of products. Stuart called me and said 'We don't have any DNA tests yet' - so we had to stop selling."

Only one episode away from #150! How did that happen!

Joining me on #149 is Dr Dan Reardon, co-founder and Ceo of Fitness Genes.

Those regular listeners to the show will know that I've been on a bit of a journey recently and completed #75HARD last Friday, July 19th. I'll be covering that in Saturday's #150, and also what I've decided to do next. #75HARD is a mental toughness challenge with obvious physical benefits as I lost 1.5 stone and 7% body fat. Plus I reached my #1 goal for 2019, twice! That was getting a #1 podcast. With nearly half the year still go, there's plenty to still achieve.

Having been a health and fitness professional in a former life, I was aware of the growing market in DNA testing, but had never signed up for any of the products that were out there.

Until I met Dr Dan Reardon from Fitness Genes: a medical doctor and genetics expert, and one of the four founders of Fitness Genes. He was an emergency room physician for ten years as well as being a certified personal trainer with over fifteen years experience and a former editor of Muscle & Fitness and Flex magazines - plus a published author a few times over.

On today's show we talk about how we can optimise our health and fitness by looking at our genes and making changes to lifestyle - based on what our genes tell us about diet, exercise and sleep: things that are the first to go when entrepreneurs get busy and overwhelmed.

But if you can't look after yourself, who can you look after?

This is for you.
