Posted by Jason Ferruggia

Joe Wicks is a man on a mission.

Growing tired of seeing people struggle following the advice of an awful dieting industry, he decided to take action.

He created a plan to educate people on how to correctly use food and exercise to build strong, lean and healthy bodies.

Known as “The Body Coach,” he has helped over 100,000 clients transform their physiques and change their lives. He has sold almost 3 million copies of his books, including the best-selling diet book of all-time, “Lean in 15 – The Shift Plan: 15 Minute Meals and Workouts to Keep You Lean and Healthy.”

In this episode Joe explains the mistakes people make with training and nutrition that keep them from getting results. We discuss his 90 Day Plans and how he helps people get in shape with shorter workouts and simplified nutrition.

He provides awesome advice for people who want to build an online training business, explains how to achieve work/life balance, how to build your presence on social media, and so much more.
