In today’s episode of Next Level, we’re talking with Drew Manning, who’s most well known for his Fit2Fat2Fit journey where he gained and then subsequently lost 75 pounds. While this may sound like a crazy experiment for someone in the fitness world to embark on, for Drew it was really about stepping into the exact experience that his clients were going through.
The big takeaway for Drew is that transformation is about way more than just physical weight loss. Trainers have the tools to help people reach their goals, but truly understanding the other layers that go along with it is so crucial, too. Drew shares about how this experience shaped him and how he’s working on changing the narrative in the fitness industry towards one that has way more empathy. We talk about how interconnected our physical, emotional, and spiritual selves are and how to nurture these different areas. Drew also shares perspective on popular diets in today's wellness culture and how there's truly no one size fits all solution. Drew offers tactical advice based on his own experiences to tap into the idea that transformations are body, mind, and soul. Wherever you're at in your journey, I think you'll relate to so much of what Drew shares.
My favorite quotes from Drew in this episode…
“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”
“Transformations are about so much more than physical weight loss.”
