THIS MONTH ON TRIBECast we interview Robb Wolf, THE Godfather of the Paleo Diet. Jim digs into the events that led to Robb’s involvement in Health, Nutrition and Fitness; how it’s evolved since he first heard about the Paleo diet in 1998, and some first-hand accounts and thoughts on being a coach that delivers an experience based on education and accountability. From the episode:

“I ended up losing both of my parents to complications with Type 2 Diabetes… I couldn’t help my parents but I can help everyone else’s parents…”

“I like to call myself the Forrest Gump of fitness… finding myself at the ground floor of the paleo diet.”

“I really believe that primary care medicine comes out of a well-run gym. You get the opportunity to educate on sleep, food, exercise, community… Community is an absolutely, essential, non-negotiable element of human health.”

“99% of what we need (in health) can be provided in the context of the gym.”

My EntreLeadership Podcast Experience

el_ai_images_podcast_irontribe

I’ve been listening to the EntreLeadership podcast for more than a year now, and I’m not alone. Business, political and church leadership around the country is the makeup of the more than 500,000 weekly listeners who subscribe to this ever-growing show. It is aired under the Dave Ramsey umbrella that is becoming a mainstream staple in modern American Journalism.  Being on this episode was so much fun that I thought I’d share my experience.  You can listen to the episode in the player below (or click to here subscribe to the EntreLeadership podcast).

Earlier this summer, I headed up to Nashville to visit some of the Iron Tribe gyms in the metro area of the Music City, only to get an invite from a contact at Dave Ramsey Solutions, to “stop by and be a guest on EntreLeadership.”

“What!?!”, I thought. “That would be an incredible opportunity for the Iron Tribe brand!'”

Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 6.52.30 AMAs I walked into Financial Peace Plaza (the name for Ramsey Solutions’ incredible campus where 500+ employees are diligently serving their customers), I met Dave Ramsey himself, along with several of the key team members that lead each of the causes for this transformational brand. Their brand, of course, is getting people fit financially, while our Iron Tribe brand is getting people fit physically.

However, ultimately, these are two of the seven or so “spokes in our wheels” (financial, physical, psychological, spiritual, etc.) that we have to have optimally running for us to truly be well-rounded individuals. So there is lots of synergy.

Getting to meet the host Ken Coleman, was a huge honor for me, after listening to him interview the likes of Mark Cuban, Mike Rowe, John Maxwell, Gary Vaynerchuck, and so many more. Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 6.53.13 AM

As we geared up to go on the air for 15 minutes or so, I was so pumped to be able to showcase my passion and the Iron Tribe story. When you listen to the interview, I hope you’ll feel what I’m talking about.

Enjoy!
