Description

My name is Daniel Lim and this is the podcast where I explore the journey on becoming the best version of yourself. What it means to live a good life. In the areas of work, relationships and wellness.

The most important conversations during my journey are the conversations with myself. But I’m also fortunate to have had fascinating conversations with real people about real topics and real feelings that we all experience in our own lives. Stories are what brings us together. It’s through stories, that we find a common currency to connect and build relationships with people. It’s these relationships that we learn the most about the world around us and who we are. I’m sharing those conversations and stories with you.

New episodes Mondays. Listen anywhere you get your podcasts, and please rate and review the podcast if you enjoy it. Live life today focusing ON BECOMING.

Danny Burde and fell in love with fitness when he needed to gain weight for his high school football team. He read everything he could on exercise, nutrition, and health. He also experimented with everything under the sun, since he was not a naturally gifted athlete and needed all the help he could get. His love for exercise continued throughout college, where he played football at San Jose State University as a running back. He double majored in Psychology and Kinesiology with an emphasis in teaching. Danny enlisted in the police academy in 2006, where he was introduced to CrossFit by one of the instructors. Danny felt the positive effects of that style of exercise immediately and has been following CrossFit workouts ever since. He is currently the Head Coach at NC Fit in Redwood City, California. Over the years Danny has developed a vast knowledge base of physical, emotional, and psychological health and fitness. This knowledge has come through experience, training, and experimentation.  Featured Guest/People Mentioned Danny Burde (@dannybrude009) Ironcrewathletics (@ironcrewathletics) Website: https://ironcrewathletics.com/ NCFit (@nc_fit) Jordan Harbinger (@jordanharbinger) Lewis Howes (@lewishowes) Tom Bilyeu (@tombilyeu) Like this show?
