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.


Doing things the hard way. This is something that Emily and I have each had to do a lot in our lives. We go off on a lot of tangents on this one, we talk about Emily's high school experience, her passion and the trials and tribulations of swimming. 

If you think this episode is long, you should consider the fact that we didn't even got onto the topics of the mountains or music festivals and that is truly the magical thing about making time and putting people first. 

This episode comes with 2 challenges that I set out for anyone who listens. 

At the beginning I ask that anyone who listens, try to pick out 3 things that resonated with you or that you related to. Send them to me either by email chris@invigoratetraining.com or tag me on social media (@christianliddle, @thelifestylechase). It's so valuable to be able to get something out of everyone you meet or listen to. We put so much value on the books we can read, but when is the last time we stopped to see what someone right in front of us has to offer. This is why businesses thrive off community. Social media feeds of that feeling of community. Don't lose sight of the fact that community is staring you right in the face. 

Excellent segway to challenge number two... At the end of the episode I challenge you to make time for someone you don't see regularly. A family member, a friend, someone who seems interesting or maybe even someone you look up to. Make it in person if possible, but if it needs to be a video chat, do that too. If you feel adventurous, tell me about that too. I like to think all of this preaching of "people first" is picking up some momentum.

The Lifestyle Chase is available on all major podcast platforms, easily searchable on google. There are well over 50 amazing people to learn about and it is truly something I value greatly. I can never thank my listeners enough for the support, and I hope you enjoy this one.

Kyle Dobbs joined me on the podcast from St. Louis, Missouri. He has over a decade of quality experience in the fitness industry having worked in many different capacities, settings and roles. 

He is one of the most highly respected mentors in the industry and has a very strong set of values which is what makes him such a perfect guest for a podcast like this. We talk about the impact of his time at Costa Rica with the likes of Dr. Ben House and Dr. Pat Davidson, and the many other remarkable people you can meet in a setting like that. 

We talk about his high school experience, challenges in post secondary, stressful moments in his career, the experiences of fatherhood, growing closer to your significant other and how Lego brings kids to flow state. Honestly, I regret not going further into that but that could have gone on for hours. 

We look at the word failure and how much of a buzz word it has become, and we talk about what a fulfilling life looks like. 

This episode was really cool. So I hope you enjoy it and take on my challenge of meeting up with someone you don't know much about this week and just learning about them for an hour. In person. Or video call. Whatever it takes.

Based out of Toronto, Carolyn Macdonald is the Director of Operations for Examine.com which is a highly trusted collection of nutrition and supplement information based on science. 

She is poised to quickly become a sought after powerhouse in the realm of getting shit done. It comes down to being able to be really genuine with the people around you. Getting to know people and being invested in them to the extent that you understand where the squeaky wheel is, is one of her strongest qualities. 

She has recently also guested on my friends, Dean Guedo and Andrew Coates' The Fitness Devil Podcast so the combination of listening to both will give you a broader scope of what Carolyn is all about.

In this episode we talked about travelling, life 20 years ago, working in public relations, dogs, and the value of being surrounded by really good people. 

Carolyn is a big advocate for making the people around her better at doing what it is that they love. She is highly skilled at understanding different personalities and truly getting to know people which proves to be a huge asset in how effective she can be at developing people to leverage their strengths and at the right times, outsource certain tasks so that we aren't always focussed on being able to do what other people already do well.

Great individuals are greater when they are open to the idea of collaboration and elevating others. 

I really hope you enjoy this episode and you should definitely keep an eye out for Carolyn as she will be one of the presenters at the first ever Evolve Strength Symposium which will take place here in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on September 14 and 15. 

We dropped a lot of names in this episode and Carolyn dropped a lot of "f-bombs" so between those two things, be ready to either hear your name or cover your kids' ears. You can find this episode and all of the others on all major podcast platforms (Spotify, Google Play, iTunes, Apple Music, YouTube) or the link in my bio!

A lot of people have heard of her, they know who she is, but there's certain aspects of her story they may not know about. Having had a presence in the media for many years, Carrie Doll has had to learn a lot of life lessons both in her career and also through life's challenges.

We chatted about family and legacy and communicating as well as one of her biggest goals. We discussed how dreams change and evolve with time. It was a very real and genuine conversation and I am glad I get to share it with anyone who wants to listen.

I hope you enjoy this one and I strongly encourage you to go and check out Carrie Doll's Inner Circle Podcast as well if you haven't already. When you look at it from the perspective of growth, we are both in the pursuit of the stories of others in an effort to elevate the people around us. The more people with that mindset in this world, the better.

I really enjoyed this conversation with Jaime. We talked about so many things, life in Fort Mac, navigating relationships, the fitness industry, travelling, the sacrifices of owning a business, the fulfillment of it the list goes on.

As I stack on more and more episodes with more and more people, the conversations evolve and change and shift, I ask different questions and listen better and learn more things. 

That's just your small lesson that if you do something consistently over an extended period of time, you will keep getting better and better at it. As long as it is something you are passionate about.

Thanks for listening. Please subscribe and listen to some of the other episodes when you get a chance. I've learned so much from each and every one of my guests and I hope you can see the same value in each of them that I do.

After going to this year's Kansas City Fitness Summit I got to meet a lot of really cool people who I had a lot in common with. Chase Erwin is from Little Rock, Arkansas. The funny backstory to this is every time I read "Arkansas", I accidentally say Ar-Kansas". Little embarrassing, but at least I didn't say it like that in the episode. I suppose I could have left that out of the description but oh well. 

We talk about Chase's origin story, Canada things, Arkansas things, he does a really solid wrestler impression, recounts some of his favourite client stories, talks about the things he loves about his wife and gives some rock solid advice for new parents. 

At some point in one of the stories, someone gets poop on their hands. You'll have to listen to find out who.

As always, thank you for all of the support. This podcast is available on all major podcast platforms and it helps me out a great deal when you share the episode on social media. Helps me grow the podcast and spread positive messages.

Hope you enjoy, rate and subscribe or I'll get Chase to make you pull him up a hill in a wagon.

Geha has an incredible amount of experiences in her life which she shared only a fraction of with me in this episode. It was a very meaningful conversation filled with vulnerability and life lessons and meaningful moments in all of the things that she has done. 

On the surface you may see her as a business owner in the wellness industry, but behind it all there is so much more to her, and as we discuss further, there is really so much more to everyone. 

This episode is available on all major podcast platforms or through the link in my bio. You will absolutely want to listen to it and it would be incredibly meaningful to me to see who has listened. So please send me a message or tag me on social media if you happen to check this one out. 

Thank you for giving me your time and supporting my passion project and I hope you enjoy!

Braede and Gavin came over to chat about all the things. Everything from business, to workplace environment to raising children and even to fitness. This episode could have been twice as long as it was but I think that's the best part of a meaningful conversation. It's all about looking forward to next time you see the people. 

We talked about how it's better to not worry about what everyone else does or what everyone else thinks is normal and simply worry about doing things that mean a lot to you and things that you feel really passionate about.

Gavin Fedorak had already co-founded Press'd sandwich shop before him and Braede created Love Pizza so he is a great source of knowledge and experience which it comes to creating and running a franchise and business ownership. 

Near the end of the episode we also chatted about the newest business venture of this power couple, you'll have to listen to find out what is coming soon. It's amazing how the right frame of mind can allow you to accomplish so many great things within a career. It just takes patience.

At the same time, they do a great job of raising the Love Pizza Prince in a way that feels right for them and works for their family.

It's good to be in tune with what you feel is most important to you because at the end of the day if you just do what everyone says you are supposed to do, will you really be happy?

I hope you enjoy this episode, I definitely had a great visit with these two.

You'll be hard pressed to find two business partners the vibe with each other better than these two fine gentleman. At least not ones who aren't married. 

In approaching the boys, I considered interviewing them separately - maybe a few months apart, but from what I knew of them, their bond has had a huge impact on the humans who they are today. 

Aaron and Arri are two really good dudes. They value their friends and family greatly and at the end of the day they just want to be surrounded by people who they feel like they could sit down and have a beer with. 

We chatted about the days of past and about Aaron going into the role of being a dad and Arri finding his other half. We chatted extensively about donairs and pizza and Australia and comfort zones and organization and beer. 

Lot of people got shout outs because these guys really value their community both socially and within their career. This one was fun, I hope you give it a listen!

You'll be able to find The Lifestyle Chase on all major podcast platforms, and the link in my bio. 

Thanks for listening, and please if you get the chance, send me a DM or share that you listened on social media. I really appreciate the connection and growth that comes from putting so much time and energy into this project.
