I had a conversation with Jordan Syatt who is an extremely successful Online Strength and Nutrition coach, he also has over half a million followers on his instagram alone due to his incredible nutrition and fitness content. Jordan is a short, bald, Jewish guy with an affinity for Deadlifting and also happens to be Gary Vaynerchuk's personal trainer. He wasn't sure what else to put in his bio (nor did he enjoy writing this in the third-person) so he'll end it here. That said, he's an open book and you can ask him, literally, anything you want. Also, as of this moment Jordan is looking to hire someone to help him write his bio. All help welcome.DURING THIS EPISODE WE TALK ABOUT: • What inspired Jordan to get into the world of health, fitness and nutrition. • How Jordan became Gary Vaynerchuk's personal trainer and the impact this had on his life. • The sacrifices Jordan had to make to build a huge social media following and an online fitness business. • The pros and cons of losing body fat quickly. • The different methods Jordan uses with his clients when it comes to losing body fat and building muscle. • Why Jordan achieves better results with online clients as opposed to when he used to train people face to face. • Why meal plans fail people most of the time when it comes to shifting body fat, building muscle and overall health. • Jordan' experience with his recent challenge of eating 1 Big Mac per day for 30 days. • A calorie deficit for fat loss explained. • Why adequate protein is important whilst in a calorie deficit for fat loss. • Why meal frequency does not matter for fat loss and muscle gain. • Jordan's take on eating meat vs following a vegan diet. • Jordan' top tips for getting in shape and achieving sustainable health.Get you free fat loss fundamentals guide HERE.Online nutrition and fitness coaching enquires: admin@optimiseyourbody.comRATINGS & REVIEWSIf you liked this episode then please head over to iTunes to give this podcast a rating and review, this is the best way for this podcast to reach more people and help them optimise their body.
