Fitness, particularly men’s fitness, is more than the weight you can lift or how fast you can build muscle. It’s about finding the physical activities you enjoy, being okay with failure, and getting creative. Furthermore, fitness is about connecting the mind with the body.

This week’s guest is a health and fitness educator who, throughout the pandemic, has gained some pretty powerful insights on fitness accessibility and the role of fitness in mental health.

Ebenezer Samuel, CSCS, is the Fitness Director at Men’s Health Magazine and the Head of Training Innovation at FlexIt Fitness, a virtual personal training app.

In this discussion, Ebenezer and Chase talk about the power of being the eternal beginner and how fitness can positively (and even negatively) impact mental health. He sheds light on his relationship with fitness and what he’s learned from the trends in physical activity he’s noticed over the past 2 years. Ebenezer also gives great advice for beginners in fitness on finding what fitness routine is best for you.
