“I’ve always been you know, New York ‘work hard play hard’, and I would just burn myself out and cause Hashimoto flare-ups basically. So I took a step back and I was like okay, how can I do this smarter?” (11:11)

“Training someone with Hashimoto’s, you have to cue them and dial their program in differently than just the typical traditional person.” (19:27)

“Starting to change the mindset of ‘I am going to in and kill it’, versus ‘I’m going to turn on all the right muscles, do functional compound, full body movements’… that’s working out smarter not just necessarily as hard as we can.” (24:00)
