The Lifestyle Chase is a podcast that focuses on guests who are on the pursuit of a balanced lifestyle. We can only be our best when we are happy and fulfilled, the journey to get there is not always so straightforward. Each episode is set up to leave us with something valuable that we can take into our own lives and at the very least we learn something new about someone that we never knew about.

Episode 138 - Ethan Woodham

I interviewed the one and only Ethan Woodham @pitythefoolfitness .

We sat down and talked about mental health, body image, fatherhood, having a supportive partner, the need for community, how trauma can make it hard to trust people, the value of being able to feel our emotions, and his vision for being the change he wants to see in the world. 

Check out the past Episodes of The Lifestyle Chase, with over 100 different guests, there is bound to be someone you know. At the end of the day, we can learn something from everyone we talk to. Thanks for supporting The Lifestyle Chase.

Today I interviewed Shawna Dirksen @practicallyminimal .

We discussed her backstory and what's brought her to where she is now. She's a writer with an education in PR and a background in recruiting.

She currently helps people to find clarity through decluttering their life. Minimalism is something that can be very helpful in the fitness space.

You can find her work at www.practicallyminimal.com

Everyone who knew who Jason Gregor was, was excited to hear he'd be on The Lifestyle Chase. If that doesn't introduce him properly to new people I don't know what will. 


At his core he cares deeply. He's a very empathetic thoughtful person who has chosen a career he was passionate about because of how it feels to connect with something that means something. 


He's a past Top 40 Under 40 Nominee, he gives back to the community thoughtfully and generously both through how he uses his platform but also in how he leads his life. 


We were able to talk about his career journey, and his general attitude towards life. He's not one to really let an obstacle get in his way. He's also a very dedicated farmer which can be character building for anyone.


Whether you know him through the sports world, or you're hearing about him for the first time, go listen to this episode. 


Thank you for supporting The Lifestyle Chase. If you enjoyed this episode, you might be interested in listening to a couple of my past episodes featuring former and current professional athletes. The guest list is unpredictable but I wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks for listening.

This episode features Harold Kaufman-Gibbons and Lucy Hendricks. We had an unconventional icebreaker at the start of the episode to help familiarize the audience, and then dove into quite a few topics.

We discussed the importance of having people to lean on and the ability to be yourself in the fitness industry. We talked about Harold's experiences at MFF and his entry into the industry.

We talked about some of Lucy's life experiences and how they shaped how she shows up in the world. We talked about the value of Lucy's Mindful Movement.

There was discussion about how fitness can often be inaccessible either because people can't see someone like them doing it, or because what it seems like they should be doing is out of their budget.

We talked about how meaningful it can be to learn from people of all different backgrounds and the impact that can have on a person's life.

There were a lot of topics covered, I hope you check it out, share it with a friend, and rate it on Apple Podcasts. Thanks for supporting The Lifestyle Chase!

I brought back Bryan Baia and Calvin Martin who were recently on their own episodes of The Lifestyle Chase.

We all know our moms are going to check out this episode and we appreciate their support. So on behalf of me and the Step Brothers, I just want to take this moment to say "Hi" to each of our moms and that we love you.

Step Brother moms, you did good.

Anyways, we talked about things like going after the project that's on your mind, choosing a brand that sees your worth, making connections, and working out on a roof.

You'll have to check this episode out, but also check out the other episodes. There are a great deal of different people from all over the world on this podcast, and there will definitely be some familiar faces for most listeners.

Mark Zarate (@zaratefitness) returns to The Lifestyle Chase for his second full length episode. The first time he was on the show was Episode 74, recorded on October 19, 2019. We did a double header for this episode so I made a recent appearance on his show, Cool, Calm, & Chaotic which I highly recommend. 

Be sure to check out Mark and what he's all about because he's always a person who knows what to say to cheer a person up. Enjoy this episode as we talk about struggles in life and loving our people.

Jasmyn @jasmynellis is a pro in the PR world and a presence in any room. Today we talked about life in Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver. We talked about her being able to feel like herself, the best version. We talked about going after things that your gut is saying to go after and not wasting too much time thinking about it. 

It's important to have that ability to show up to all of your connections feeling empowered. In any connection, it works two ways, your words, your actions, and your emotions you share. 

We talked about what life was like as the daughter of a professional athlete growing up as a black girl in a white community. We talked about the clarity she found on a spin bike and how much she wanted everyone else to be able to get that as well. 

We talked about her purpose for being someone who ensures that there IS diversity in this world. We talked about how living by yourself in the middle of a pandemic is REALLY hard. 

There was a lot of real talk in this episode, plenty of happy moments and tonnes of learning. I hope you enjoy this one!

Neville Wright is an Olympian, a National Champion, a Role Model, a Dad, a Performance Therapist, and a Public Speaker. We talked about life, and what shaped him into the athlete he became. How leaning into seeing the positives in life and focusing on athletics enabled him to focus his energy on things that would help him rather than things that might hurt him. 

Neville shared with me how he had to take a break from training, how he had a coach that believed in him and how he sees so much potential in kids. He's a great guy to talk to about resilience because he knows all about overcoming and rising to the challenge. 

I hope you enjoy this episode! Thanks for listening to The Lifestyle Chase

Kimberly Haley (@kitesandpumps) is the host of the Ask The Right Questions Podcast (asktherightquestions_podcast).

In this Episode, we talk about what brought her to being a Certified Neuro Muscular Therapist and Wellness Coach. We talk about her 5 favorite people (among so many other people who are her favorite) and we talk about emotions. 

It's a pretty loaded episode that jumps from music, to how she met her husband, to her high school experience to gardening but we were able to discuss a lot of meaningful things and she gives advice to her 15 year old self. 

I really hope you get a chance to go check out her podcast after you listen to her episode here. Thanks for listening!

Calvin Martin (@calvinjmartin) is half of @stepbrothersnyc which is a collaboration between him and @thelifestylechase alumni, @bryanbaia . 

I think this is the most I've ever laughed in recording an episode of The Lifestyle Chase. We talked about Calvin's start into the industry and he opened up about some really tough moments in his life. 

We can expect to face difficulty but it's what we do afterward that makes up the biggest moments in our life. Calvin talked about his passion for working with youth, the future of tomorrow, and where that stemmed from. We talked about how important it is to be yourself, and be genuine with social media solidarity. 

We have to be ready to stand up for and with our brothers and sisters for the next 20 000 days or so, so how does that look for you?

It goes without saying that we talked about things here and now, #blacklivesmatter, #COVID19, and all of the things that have made 2020 what it is. 

However, if you find this podcast in 2020, I think it will leave you with plenty of takeaways. Did you plan that hike in your week, or did it take a pandemic for the hike to happen. Are we telling our people that we love them and really soaking in the time that we get with them, or are we waiting for a pandemic to happen. 

This episode is a must-listen, and I know that seems kind of biased because it's me (Chris Liddle) typing it out and of course I want you to listen, but I think you should go listen regardless. 

Thanks for supporting The Lifestyle Chase, go check out my episode with Bryan, and then skim through the past guests because I can almost guarantee you'll know someone else or have something to learn from one of the many many past guests.
