I felt gross. I was tired from chasing a toddler around, out of shape, and fighting a series of frustrating injuries.

And I realized it was hurting my output at work. Building a business takes real energy and real brainpower, and I wasn’t performing optimally because my body wasn’t performing optimally.

I knew I had to do something about it.

A friend introduced me to Rob Dionne, a certified personal trainer who works with clients online and in person. He also co-hosts the Open Sky Fitness podcast with his wife Devon and runs the really active Open Sky Fitness Facebook group.

Since we started working together, I’ve lost 5 pounds, gained strength, and generally feel more energized during the day. On the surface, investing 20 minutes in a workout seems like going backward; that’s 20 minutes I should be working! But I’ve found it pays dividends in better energy the rest of the day and better sleep at night.

During our coaching calls, I’d often find myself saying, “This is really good stuff, we should be recording this.”

And that’s how this episode came to be.

Tune in to hear the most important health and fitness factors, how they can fit into any schedule, and Rob’s analysis of one Side Hustle Show listener’s daily routine.
