Key Highlights

  • Experiencing trauma or a loss comes with an influx of energy. “If you’re not intentional about using that energy and using that circumstance to actually harness it and move it in a direction intentionally, you’re drifting,” Mike says. “You’re just being moved in a direction by another force other than your self-determinism. Being intentional keeps you out of evil, out of destruction, and into something that can build success.”

  • Mike and Chase talk about what it feels like to “wake up”, recognize your traumas, and start working to reach your potential.

  • Mike tells the story of how a $100 bill being thrown at him became a defining moment in his life. He speaks on the impact of having divorced parents, enduring family conflict and abuse, and how he turned that $100 bill into millions.

  • What is the root cause of being a high-achiever? Can we only tap into our limitless potential through a source of pain? Why can some people use pain to their advantage while others stay stuck in it? Listen in to hear Mike’s candid thoughts!

  • Mike speaks on how to build the habits needed to live the life of your dreams, even when people don’t agree with you or support you along the way.

  • With all the financial insecurity and a looming recession, is now the right time to buy a house? How do you navigate volatility in the market as a business owner? Jay shares his two cents on investing in real estate in 2023 and the biggest misconception you may have about buying a house. He also shares why he started multiple businesses in different sectors and even started a podcast.

  • Mike divulges his next big mission: Starting 10,000 tech companies in 10 years! Tune in to hear how he’s doing it!

Powerful Quotes by Mike “C-Roc” Ciorrocco

If you have a mission in life, you take everything that comes your way that would stop or slow you down, and instead of storing it in your trunk where most people keep their stuff… instead of that, I store it in my tank, my fuel tank, and convert it into rocket fuel and I just go faster and faster and become unstoppable.

My decision is my mission and my commitment to my mission. Their decision is whether to be a part of it or not.

Trent Ward highlights an incredible piece of technology that boosts motivation for working out and makes personal training more accessible and convenient. He introduces you to FORME Life, the most complete in-home smart gym and strength studio on the market. With the best instructors, personalized weekly plans, and weightless strength training technology, FORME truly has everything you need to stay motivated to work out consistently and reach your fitness goals without leaving your home.

If you know how to squat, jog, and lift a weight over your head, why waste money on a trainer or smart gym? It’s simple. Having an expert in charge of what you’re doing, without you having to think about it, makes it a lot easier and more enjoyable to work out. “Modern life deserves a modern approach to fitness,” Trent says. 

Trent Ward is the Founder and CEO of FORME Life, a company he created because it was hard for him to schedule fitness into his busy life. So, he realized working out at home was the answer. Not only that, but Trent wanted to create something that provided trustworthy fitness education, expert guidance and motivation, and customized fitness plans for those who find it difficult to maintain a fitness routine.

Is FORME the missing piece to your health and fitness journey? Tune in to find out!

Key Highlights

  • With so much resistance around finding the right workout routine, dragging yourself to the gym, and hiring a personal trainer, FORME breaks down the barriers to an effective, convenient fitness journey. 

  • The fitness world is going digital, but despite all this innovative technology, human connection is still important. Listen in as Trent describes how FORME Life is striving to make virtual personal training more personalized and human-centered.

  • What is the FORME Life experience? Is FORME truly worth the investment? Tune in to hear Trent break down how FORME works, the feedback they’ve gotten from users, and the ways it can benefit your unique daily life.

  • The main goal for your fitness journey is to feel better, but that takes time, usually a few weeks or months. Most people’s attention and motivation for working out and eating healthy lasts about a week. “We have the opportunity here with technology to kind of fill in that motivation gap, to get you to the other side, to get that real engagement driver of ‘I feel good, I want to do more of this’,” Trent says. “It’s pushing you to complete things, it’s removing the friction and allowing it on-demand and in your house.”

  • Then, Trent shares his current health goals and highlights his approach to living a healthy lifestyle as a busy entrepreneur.

Powerful Quotes by Trent Ward

Frankly, if you’re stronger, whether it’s physical or mental, you’re more resilient.

If we can remove friction from your life and make it exciting and in your house and on-demand, we’ll increase your frequency of activity and that’s just nudging you in the right direction. 

The optimization isn’t “Are you an Olympic athlete?”. It’s “Do I like this person and trust them?” and so, it’s really about personal relationships and rapport and we’re trying to celebrate that as much as we can in the digital realm.

Chase welcomes Jay Ferruggia to talk about the biological cost of your fitness routine, using minimum effective doses in training, and how to build your confidence and self-esteem in and out of the gym.

Jay Ferruggia is a Transformation Specialist and host of the Renegade Strength Show. Jay’s mission is to help men over 35 build a strong body, strong mind, and strong life, one day at a time.

As a man in his late 40s who’s been on a health journey since he was a teen, Jay has lots of wise advice for other men out there who want to transform their bodies, build back their confidence, and get the most from their training. Take notes, guys!

Key Highlights

  • What is the biological cost of your training? What negatively affects training the most? Listen in as Jay describes what the biological cost of your training means and how you can manage it healthily.

  • When do you ever get time alone to think? The human body is always the greatest coach, so you need to regularly take time to be alone with yourself, listening to your body and mind without external input.

  • Jay speaks on the importance of finding exercises that fit your body long-term, the disadvantages of overtraining, and what to do when your typical fitness routine doesn’t work for you anymore.

  • Jay shares powerful advice on building confidence, training for longevity, and seeing lasting results into your 30s and 40s.

  • What is your minimum effective dose in strength training? Jay breaks down the concept of minimum effective dose as a simple, yet highly effective approach to gaining muscle and strength. Tune in to learn more!

Powerful Quotes by Jay Ferruggia

If you’re just starting out, you don’t have to do all the things all the time. Basic strength training is going to be 80%, that’s going to be your results.

I’ve always been my biggest and strongest training like three or four days a week, but… there’s something about the habit and the mindset and the stress relief of training more. 

There’s very few reasons to lift weights other than to build muscle and gain strength, and then as you get older and older, bone density. I don’t think it’s good for conditioning. I don’t think it’s good for fat loss.

Powerful Quotes by Dr. Kevin Marryshow

Having a relationship [with your body] creates a vessel and an area of opportunity to really take accountability and ownership.

Identity is a huge part of this discussion between how we experience pain, what it means to us, and how that pain can ultimately change who we are, unfortunately, unless we have a real grasp over that.

If you can relate to the stories of the practitioner or the clinician that’s working with you, it already drives better outcomes because of the psychosocial component to pain and recovery and performance.

The work doesn’t end when you’re out of pain, the work actually just begins because that’s when you’re moving your best, you’re at your freest and that when we get to build on what we’ve been working on.

Ross Dawson joins Chase to talk about futurism and how to prosper in a world of unlimited information. They discuss the future of work, the power of defining your relationship with information, and strategies for increasing your attention span in the Digital Age.

Ross believes information overload is the defining feature of our society. The good news is we use futurism to help us reduce anxiety about the future and live our best lives. How? It starts with purpose and a choice. “We can close ourselves off from the world or we can open ourselves up,” Ross says, “and the faster the world changes, the more being open is an advantage.”

Ross Dawson is a globally recognized futurist, entrepreneur, strategy advisor, keynote speaker, and best-selling author of “Thriving on Overload: The 5 Powers for Success in a World of Exponential Information”.

Powerful Quotes by Ross Dawson

Being anxious about the future is not helpful, but what we can do is to understand that there are forks in the road which are leading forward and that some of the things we can do are likely to shape that.

We have to be very selective around what it is we choose to really become part of us through consumption of information.

Purpose is the starting point, but it doesn’t mean that we need to know our life’s purpose. Part of it is saying, what relationship with information do you want?

All of this is a choice. We can close ourselves off from the world or we can open ourselves up. The faster the world changes, the more being open is an advantage.

Powerful Quotes by Chris Rinsch

The mitochondria are there to produce the energy and keep the cells functioning and if the cells function well, the tissues are incorporated in are then functioning well and then your body functions well.

How long does it take to see actual, measurable, or to feel a measurable improvement? It may be as early as one month, certainly two months we start to see physiological effects, and in four months we see clear effects on muscle strength.

Powerful Quotes by Don Saladino

Never at any point did I think that I was bigger than the game and I think that’s why I’ve shown a high level of success doing what I’m doing.

There are sacrifices and there is discipline that has to be made, yet in this world, we think we can just turn on a Peloton class and that it’s gonna solve our [problems] and most of the time, it really doesn’t.

If the goal is to look better naked, to increase energy levels, to be able to feel better, then we can do that with a minimalistic approach. We’re just gonna have to have a little compromise.

Entrepreneur and advocate, Celine Tien, talks about the power of building a platform for people with chronic pain/illness and using VR and biofeedback to take back control of your nervous system.

Feeling just a little bit better each day can have a massive domino effect on your life. Celine’s greatest advice is to go out and find that thing that’s going to create that domino effect. It could be going on a daily walk, it could be cutting out caffeine, or it could be Flowly…

Celine Tien is the Founder and CEO of Flowly, a holistic brain-body program for retraining your autonomic nervous system. Flowly is NIH-backed and studied by UPMC and USC as an opioid-sparing pain management device. With Flowly, you can learn to shift your body from pain to flow state.

  • What is biofeedback? Celine explains what it is and how it can help you learn to relax and shift your body into the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest mode). This can lead to better sleep, better recovery, and increased HRV (heart rate variability).

  • Celine highlights the science behind Flowly, the accessibility and inclusivity of this technology, and the results they’re seeing in patients, including a 50% reduction in opioid usage! She then shares her thoughts on the opioid epidemic and their mission for patients using opioids.

  • What is the Flowly user experience? Celine describes what it’s like to use Flowly and join the Flowly community. Chase also shares a bit about his experience using it.

  • What’s next for the future of VR? What are some other potential uses of Flowly? Tune in to hear Celine’s answers!

Powerful Quotes by Celine Tien

When you are in pain, it’s really hard to ask you to close your eyes and meditate and focus in on your body.

Both what we found in our own studies, but also in previous studies in this space, virtual reality creates a really immersive medium for people to focus in on their body, but by focusing on something outside of their body.

You’re learning how to calibrate your body, you’re learning how to take control of your autonomic nervous system, but without the need of any type of medication or invasive procedure to do that.

We really believe that health experiences shouldn’t be scary, they should actually be beautiful.

The world is noisier than it’s ever been. It is becoming increasingly difficult to focus our attention where we want to. As a culture where overwhelm is the norm and noise, both internal and external, is so prevalent, it can seem impossible to find moments of silence and time to be still. 

Leigh Marz and Justin Zorn, authors of “Golden: The Power of Silence in a World of Noise,” talk about the meaning and power of silence in a noisy world, how to find silence, why you need it, and how it can change your life. 

Their book discusses why silence is important for our personal and collective wellbeing and how to experience deep silence while living a full life. As well as exploring the concept of silence, the book also explores what goes on in nothingness and where silence truly exists.

Leigh is a collaboration consultant and leadership coach to federal agencies and major companies. Justin has served as a meditation teacher and legislative director in the US Congress. Together Justin and Leigh cofounded Astrea Strategies, a consultancy that specializes in helping individuals and organizations develop solutions from a place of attention and centeredness.

Key Highlights

  • Silence is less about finding a quiet place and more about being present. We experience silence in spaces that allow us to avoid interference with our perception and intention.

  • Our everyday lives are full of opportunities to listen actively and stay present, but how often do we do this?

  • The absence of sound does not always imply silence. What makes sound different from noise? How can we find quiet in a noisy environment?

  • Are quiet and silence subjective experiences? What can we do to experience internal quiet and flow?

  • Our fear of getting quiet and seeking silence can prevent us from experiencing silence. Why is that? 

  • How to avoid being overwhelmed by noise by tuning your senses to silence and being a discerning listener

  • Is silence something you need to find? Justin explains that quiet can be accessed at all times and shares ways he has utilized micro-moments in his life to get quiet. 

Powerful Quotes by Leigh and Justin

Leigh: 

There is a mass proliferation of information that is grabbing our attention increasingly with push notifications, pinging, zinging, all these things, and our attention, our ability to process that information, has not increased in any meaningful way.

It’s our birthright to be able to have pristine attention no matter what gadgetry we may own or be into.

Justin:

Silence is the absence of noise. Not all sound–but the absence of noise in the sense of unwanted distraction. In the sense of nothing making claims on your consciousness. In the sense of nothing interfering with your clear perception and intention. When we think about silence, we often think about quiet spaces, but sometimes there are spaces that are high decibel, but they’re like flow states where there’s no self referential thought, where there’s nothing interfering with clear perception and intention because we’re in the silence of the moment.

Stop mistaking stress from aliveness.

Valentina LeQueux is here to talk about the mindset needed to combat negative thoughts, using breathwork for trauma release, her struggles with body image as a fitness lover, and her self-worth during and after an unhealthy marriage.

We can learn a lot from our pasts, but as Valentina says, we can’t fix anything there. The only thing we truly have control over is this present moment. That mindset has gotten her through the hardest of times and led her to accept what is right here, right now.

  • She discusses the reality of navigating low self-confidence and low self-worth after leaving a toxic relationship and how she became more aware of her negative self-talk.

  • Psychedelics can be very healing, but unfortunately, they don’t always lead to healing experiences. Valentina speaks up about her unfortunate experience with psychedelics and offers words of wisdom and caution about using them. 

  • Having learned so much about what she doesn’t want in a partner, Valentina is now in a very healthy relationship! Listen in as she speaks on how she was able to open up again after a divorce and why she never would have seen this relationship coming.

Powerful Quotes by Valentina 

Everything is a choice.

I’m always trying to be as fair as I can while still understanding that I am human and I have my own feelings and I have my own trauma.

Don’t stay in the past. You can’t fix anything in the past. You can try to learn from it… but the only thing that you can do is keep living in this moment in time.
