Today’s issue is brought to you by Unstoppable After 40 Masterclass. In this training, I reveal the simple (but effective) 5-step process our high achieving clients are using to boost energy, burn fat & transform their bodies…in less than 2 hours per week!
If you’ve tried, CrossFit, HIIT, Pilates, Intermittent Fasting, going Keto or other quick fixes and didn’t get the results that you want, then you’ve gotta watch this training.

When it comes to coaching clients, I’m always “all in.”
But truth be told, I’ve been slacking on growing my business.
Don’t get me wrong.
We’ve hit our highest income months ever in 2023.
But we’ve still been playing small.
Why do I say this?
I could give you stats. But the truth is that it’s a feeling. I know I could be doing so much more. Because I’ve been trying to 2x my business. And it’s been feeling like a LOT of work.
The reason is I’ve been trying to mix business with pleasure.
In fact, I’m on a flight to Italy as I write this.
I’ll be taking a 2-week trip. But I’ll have to work a lot so it won’t really be a vacation.
I won’t be able to relax 100% or be 100% with work.
And that’s how I’ve been doing things recently.
But, no more.
I’ve decided to focus on going all-in with business growth. Although it’ll feel painful to sit in one place and focus on work, I know that the long-term pay off will be 2-week trips without working at all.
This is also the conversation I have with many people who want coaching. They don’t realize that fully committing to your health is easier than dabbling.
When you dabble, you don’t get great results. It gets old. And you end up having a hard time keeping up with your plan.
So, my question to you is what is the thing in your life that you’re still dabbling instead of fully committing? And how much longer are you going to let this situation continue?
That being said…
Here is your Unstoppable After 40 Friday Digest:
1. When eating healthy is unhealthy
A nutrition professor went on a low-calorie diet of Twinkies, Doritos, and Oreo cookies to prove that total calories, not healthier foods, are the key to weight loss.
He lost 27 pounds in 2 months.
You may think he became unhealthy as a result of eating all that junk food even though he lost weight
But that’s not what happened.
His biomarkers for heart health improved. He reduced his triglycerides (circulating fat in the blood) by 39%, dropped his LDL by 20% and raised his HDL by 20%.
My point is that calorie in and calorie out matters.
If you’re loading up on olive oil, avocado, and organic, grass-fed ribeye steak, understand that you don’t get a pass because on calories because you’re eating clean.
While I wouldn’t recommend doing the “Twinkie Diet” you can eat some unhealthy foods while improving your health if you focus on total calories.
Keep this in mind if you’re “eating clean” but not losing fat.
You don’t have to count calories but calories always count.
2. Perfection Vs Consistency
This is a concept that I teach my clients over and over. I remind them constantly that perfection is NOT the goal. You aim high for most of the thing in your life and that’s why you’re a high achiever, I get it. But beating yourself up when you miss the mark? That’s not the path. Instead, shoot for consistency!
Forget about cutting ALL the junk; just cut most. Instead of trying to workout EVERY day, how about most days? Aim to eat right most meals and remember – one bad day doesn’t define your journey. Pick yourself up and keep going!
Life’s not about an all-or-nothing approach. It’s about showing up, again and again. Trust me, in the long run, consistency will always take the win over perfection.
And that’s why health and fitness for long-term results is not about having the perfect workout or diet, it’s about changing your approach. Your mindset is KEY for mastering the health and fitness game.
3. Stop shoulder pain from ruining your workout
Here are 5 exercises to reduce pain (and increase strength):
- Mini band wall walk
- Dumbell Side External Rotation
- Self-massage pecs + anterior delts
- Thoracic mobilization.
- Cat stretch
Legendary Life Coaching Client Highlight: Kevin H.
Kevin (36 years old) slashed 25 pounds of fat and became a more active father and husband
At 36, with a bustling career and loving family, he was grappling with weight issues, the dreaded afternoon slumps, and a cloud of gloom overhead. Docs suggested pills, but Kevin felt there had to be another way.
After researching online, he found the Legendary Life podcast. He was a bit skeptical at first but took a leap of faith and decided to invest in himself.
After 4 months, Kevin:
- Lost 25lbs of fat while putting on lean muscle.
- His joints felt better and his mobility improved.
- Went from not being able to perform 2 pull-ups to knocking.
- Out 10 with perfect form.
- Got a huge boost in confidence and his energy levels went through the roof.
More than just gym gains, he’s now rocking life with a tighter bond with his kids, a better relationship with his wife, and even snagged a sweeter job offer.

Audio Book Recommendation: Unleash the Power Within: Personal Coaching to Transform Your Life! by Tony Robbins
I love this audiobook because Tony teaches you how to transform your limiting beliefs, adding new meaning and depth to your life and how to tap into your deepest, most personal resources, to become all you truly desire and deserve.
This is a great listen, if you want to end this year strong.
