Nutrition, Fitness, Training, and Movement with Bronson Dant

Do you want more out of life than simply getting out of bed every morning with fewer aches and pains? In today's episode, Bronson and I discuss the importance of constantly challenging your body to do more to increase overall health and mobility.

Bronson is a repeat guest to our show and it's always great chatting with him. At 38 years old, Bronson saw a picture of himself on the beach and was taken aback by what he saw. His health and fitness were not optimal and he decided right then that he would make serious changes to his nutrition and physical training in order to look and feel healthy and strong. He's currently killing it as an online coach, providing his clients with access to an app and fitness programs to help them meet their goals without needing access to a gym. Bronson truly has passion for what he does and we look forward to working with him again in the future.
