Maximize Your Body and Life with Bobby Maximus – Episode 313

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

A lot of people say they don’t want to be average but it’s a rare breed of man that lives their life like it’s their mission to destroy mediocrity.

Bobby Maximus, my guest in this episode of Renegade Radio, is one of the few.

He’s a former police officer and Defensive Tactics Instructor. He has competed in the UFC, won submission of the night at Ultimate Fight Night 5, starred on Spike TV’s The Ultimate Fighter Series, and was the Ring of Fire light-heavyweight champion.

He has also served as General Manager at Gym Jones, an elite strength and conditioning facility in Salt Lake City, UT and went on to create a world-class brand and gym of his own.

His “Maximus” family of brands is a rising force in the world of fitness and exercise and his book “Maximus Body: The Physical and Mental Training Plan That Shreds Your Body, Builds Serious Strength, and Makes You Unstoppably Fit,” is one of the most popular exercise books in existence.

In this episode you’ll learn tips from Bobby to take your training, nutrition and life to the next level.
