If you’ve ever struggled to lose weight, get in shape, train for a marathon, or find the energy you need to make big changes in your life, then this is the show for you!

We interview Dr. Michelle Segar, an acclaimed motivation expert, who shares the science of motivation in her new book, No Sweat: How the Simple Science of Motivation Can Bring You a Lifetime of Fitness.

Learn why the paradigm of health and fitness is broken, and how to overcome it.

Discover why there’s a constant tug-of-war between your heart and your head, and why the heart always wins…Once you understand this, you make different choices, and set up habits to make it easier to set yourself up for success.

Discover what marketers have known all along to make us buy, that we can use, to get ourselves healthy or make big changes in our lives.

Understand the vicious cycle of failure in diet, exercise, or any motivated endeavor, or why pushing through never works. You’ll understand why no pain, no gain is never sustainable, but what is sustainable for the long run!
