Today, I’m honored to be here with the wonderful Bob Harper, long-time host of The Biggest Loser, heart attack survivor and celebrity trainer, whose clients include the likes of Ben Stiller, Selma Blair and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Bob is kind, compassionate and hilarious, and he’ll be the first to tell you today why reality TV show workouts aren’t exactly what they seem.
And as it turns out, not only is Bob a yoga instructor, snowboarder, and tennis enthusiast, he’s also quite a talented street and portrait photographer. And we’ll be talking about why finding your creative outlet is worth it, even if it looks a little bit different for each one of us.
I hope you dig it. We’re chatting about…
- How Bob survived his widow-maker heart attack and cardiac arrest
- Recalibrating your goals after injury or a major life event
- Why reality TV show workouts aren’t what they seem
- The many forgotten benefits of walking
- Why we all need at least one creative outlet
- Enjoying life while staying on track
- And tons more…
Let’s go hang out with Bob.

Following this interview, Bob even inspired me to dust off the camera and take a few shots of the mountains behind the house after our first snow.
It was beautiful and totally worth it, so all of you who are struggling to do that creative thing, even though I might be playing music all the time and creative that way, I struggle and drag my feet in other ways, whether it’s sketching or photography or all sorts of other ways of expressing myself creatively.
So, I hope you’ve enjoyed this show about why that’s important today, especially if you want to survive and thrive.

Before You Go…
Here’s a review for Future Greens that Dallas dropped for us over at wildsuperfoods.com. He says…
“These are amazing. I have tried MANY of the marketplace available “powdered greens”. These have the best flavor and most diverse ingredients period.
Get them, they will blow you away.”
Hey, Dallas, thank you so much for that kind review and I’m glad you like them as well.
We want to make sure that they don’t taste bad because trust me, as Fat-Burning Man, I’ve tried so many mediocre and terrible tasting supplements, whether they be powders or all sorts of other pills and potions, a lot of them are absolutely mediocre or worse.

Now, if you’re working outdoors, in the garden, going for runs or lifting heavy like we are, good on you for breaking a sweat.
But instead of reaching for that sugary fluorescent electrolyte drink, do yourself a favor and replenish with a healthy and natural option.
After years of mixing his own homemade electrolyte concoctions, our buddy Robb Wolf started up LMNT and it has quickly become a favorite in our house.
Each grab-and-go packet mixes easily in water and replaces essential electrolytes without any of the sugar, coloring, artificial ingredients or other junk you find in typical sports drinks and energy drinks.
The ingredients are straightforward, and I’ve been digging the different flavors from LMNT.
For a limited time, LMNT is giving away free 8-packs, so you can try the different flavors.
So if you want to claim your free LMNT sample pack, just go to: DrinkLMNT.com/wild
You’ll get a free sample pack with full-sized packets of LMNT and you’ll only need to pay a small price for the cost of shipping.
So once again, just go to DrinkLMNT.com/wild to collect your free electrolytes from our buddy Robb and the team over at LMNT.
And if you haven’t tried a well-formulated clean CBD tincture or salve yet, I highly recommend giving it a shot.
With over 12,000 clinical studies, it’s easy to see why this powerhouse plant compound is so highly revered.
I’ve been experimenting with CBD for many years at this point, but with so many companies jumping in the game and just slapping labels on mediocre products, it’s been challenging finding a trustworthy source, which is why I’m so happy we found Eaton Hemp.
They produce some of the highest quality CBD and hemp products out there.
100% grown, bottled and processed in New York, and they even infuse it in their very own organic hemp seed oil grown right on the farm.
So if you’d like to try Eaton Hemp’s organic CBD for yourself, head on over to eatonhemp.com right now and you can save 30% off storewide.
All you have to do is use the special promo code: WILD30
Once again, just head on over to eatonhemp.com and enter the code, wild30, to collect your 30% savings.
