The Lifestyle Chase is the fitness podcast that is unlike your average fitness podcast. Not all the guests are in the fitness industry. Some are business owners, some are just good humans. There is something to be learned from everyone you meet. The vision of this show is to give people the tools to live fulfilling lives where they can feel strong, inspired and supported - knowing that they are not alone.

Episode 201 - Patrycia Rzechowka on Reframing Situations and Seeing Life Through Someone Else’s Lens

Patrycia (@rzechowka on IG) was first on the show waaaay back on November 29, 2018! It was Episode 15 and life was very different, yet at the same time, not entirely different.

Not many people take the time to consider what life would be like for someone with MS. In a time when people are getting upset about their rights and freedoms, they are rarely considering how their actions can put someone like Patrycia in danger. 


Patrycia is a champion at reframing situations and putting her best foot forward. We are all allowed to have a bad day, but when we are able to see that life is short and time is precious, attitude matters. I highly encourage everyone to go to Patrycia’s website to learn more about her and definitely go back and listen to Episode 15 as well here.

Episode 200 - Junil Rodriguez on Leaving Parties Early, Owning Real Estate and the Cornfield Chase

Wow. First of all, Episode 200. It’s pretty monumental. Please go back through the guests over the last 3 years and give a few more episodes a listen when you’re done this one. Now onto Junil. 


Junil Rodriguez (@thejunmethod) is a New York-based trainer with a skillset that stems from years of experience outside the industry. No matter what people say about experience within the industry, your ability to develop a business sense and people skills outside of the fitness industry will give you an edge once you make the leap. The tough part is finding balance. We talked about Junil’s introverted tendencies and how she stays organized for her day. We talked about her big plans and the little things that bring her joy. If you’re wondering about the Cornfield Chase, it’s a Hans Zimmer song which I just added into the title to see if you were paying attention. 


If you know Junil you will likely know about a dozen of the other guests on this show and you should definitely check out their episodes too. To help The Lifestyle Chase THRIVE, please go out of your way to leave a nice review and a rating and share it widely with all the people you know. 


Thank you so much for listening to or watching the show. Your host, Chris Liddle, can be found @christianliddle on IG or you can follow the show @thelifestylechase. You can also go to to learn more about Chris.

We went through some of Derek’s changes he’s made to his coaching and his own training and we highlighted a lot of things with regards to habits, routines, and environment. Whether it be finding like minded people, or creating the time necessary to have a restful sleep.

In this episode we talked about some of the parts of the year that tested us to not look back and make big moves. For Katie, it was taking time for herself and actually going on a holiday. It was also leaning into others to see where her strengths were and where she could recruit the talents of others.


We talked about how trolling and unfollowing can be tough to handle on social media and went over a few of the things that we need to remember when it comes to what goes on in a cell phone vs. what goes on in real life.

I HIGHLY recommend that you purchase it, I bought it myself, and I was not sponsored or coaxed in any way to have Austin on to talk about his book.

Episode 193 - Carmen Choney on Creating Connections, Staying Loyal, and Being Aware

You miss out on a lot if you focus only on one place, or one person or one thing. This is why The Lifestyle Chase isn’t always a discussion revolving around fitness.


Today’s guest is Carmen Choney or @thatssocarmen on IG. She’s a powerhouse in the country music industry but her job description isn’t limited to one simple title. She thrives when she feels the purpose that life on the road brings, and like everyone, sometimes it tests her to her physical limits. 


In this episode we talked about the awareness of self as well as the awareness of others. Being prepared for what could happen is how Carmen has had such a lengthy career. 


We talked about the value of having a community you can count on, and the importance of not only focussing on what you notice in people, but in what other people notice. 


For some it may be eye contact, yet for others it might be our individual weirdness. 


Loyalty and respect was a theme of discussion in our conversation and it applies in anyone’s life. Staying loyal and respecting others is the difference between a 20 year career and a 3 year career. 


I hope you get as much value from this conversation with Carmen as I did, and keep your eyes open as she continues to make big moves. 


Thanks for listening to or watching The Lifestyle Chase which is available both in audio on all platforms or in video on YouTube.

Episode 192 - Case Kenny on Not Settling For Less and Letting Your Actions Do The Work

If you are unfamiliar with Case Kenny, you can find him on IG at @case.kenny, head to his website at, and listen to his podcast, New Mindset Who Dis 


Case Kenny is best described as a self published author, an experienced speaker, a business owner and a creative. 


You could also call him a Dude Bro Guy as it’s a description he’s often used for himself. 


You will get a lot more of his back story by going back to Episode 30 of The Lifestyle Chase from February 16, 2019. 


In today’s episode we talked about his mindset journals, his music collaborations, turning down deals with Spotify, and writing quotes on coffee cups. 


Near the end we talked about what Case would tell someone if they just got ghosted or dumped, and he gave the audience a challenge for the day. 


I highly recommend going back to the old episode to see the growth of both Case and myself. 


To learn more about Case, give him a follow @case.kenny
