84. The Fitness Ninja: Making Good Choices By Creating Discomfort - Marc Zalmanoff

Marc Zalmanoff

As human beings, we put things in 2 categories……..good or bad.  These are two labels that get associated with emotions and as we know, emotions are very strong and can cause us to over judge ourselves which can keep us in vicious cycles of self-abuse.  At the end of the day, there’s only so much you can do.  The rest is rooted in one thing………..choice.  Everything you think, say, and do will determine what you choose to do.   Marc Zalmanoff, aka The Fitness Ninja is the owner and founder of Marc Z Fitness and Nutrition which helps keep CEOs, Business Owners, and serial entrepreneurs in peak physical condition with regimented nutrition and fitness plans both in person and online.  Marc is also a best-selling author of the book, “Make Good Choices,” and host of the “The Make Good Choices” Podcast.”


Today, Pedro and Marc get into a philosophical discussion about pain and the human condition.  They discuss the current state of society and how we are so comfortable in being able to get what we want, when we want it, and how we want it.  They discuss the value of doing the work without knowing the income, and how you can be a good man while maintaining your masculinity.  They talk about Apex Evolution and the exponential growth they both have experienced by doing one simple thing. Marc lines out the importance of remembering your death and explains why you should be concerned with it. Bring your notepad and pen. You’re going to want to take some notes.

“It’s all a choice. There’s only so much we can control but we can control what we think, and we can control the actions that we take.  And as long as we keep that in the forefront of our minds, everything else is going to work out the way it’s gonna work out.  There’s not much you can do about it.”
