On today’s episode, our host Jay Cardiello speaks with EB Samuel, Fitness Director for Men’s Health Magazine and Head of Training Innovation for Flexit Fitness. EB has been a certified trainer for more than a decade and has seen the space change drastically. He’s trained with both NFL and track athletes, and prior to working with Men’s Health Magazine, he was a sports and technology columnist for the New York Daily News. Today he is here to tell us all about his journey both in life and fitness and how he is using his training, as well as writing, to redefine strength. You will get to take a look at some of the challenges EB has faced throughout his career and learn a bit about how he has found strength along the way. Together the duo discuss how EB’s interest in technology plays off his interest in sports and how he has discovered connections between the two.

They even touch on the idea of fitness in the metaverse! Learn about what the main differences between HIIT (high-intensity interval training) and other forms of metabolic conditioning like crossfit are and which one could be the best suited for you.

As a motivational speaker, Erik works hard to spread his No Barrier message and encourage others to live life to the fullest.
