The Keegan Smith Experience - 30 Day Challenge
The Keegan Smith Experience was launched March 8th, 2018.
The motivation for the podcast is to offer more people the philosophy of living that Keegan and many of the coaches in the RealMVMT Project Community have been living.
The system is built around self-development and contribution. First, create change within yourself and then use that change as power to change the world.
Most of the views expressed run contrary to the average or consensus approach which means there is a possibility that they will give a distinct advantage over the opposition (or a disadvantage). Really it's not so much about winning but continually playing the game to a higher standard.
I invite you to experience life this way (iTunes, Spotify, Libsyn).
The 30 Day Challenge
We're all being influenced. Brain-washed is another way to put it. The influences we've invited into our lives are most of who we are. You are the influences you've been exposed to.
In the same way, we are all obsessed. It's easy to say that Michael Phelp's time in the pool indicates his obsession or the amount of time the Bulgarian Weightlifters invested in the gym demonstrates their obsession and the passion of Abadjiev but you too have had the same amount of time. You've pour that time into something. Whatever that is, that's your obsession.
What if you put 30 days into listening to this podcast and reflecting on the message?
What if you took the energy from the audio and turned it into your own training regime?
I will create 30 powerful episodes for you. What will you do with them?
Episode 1 - Fat conspiracy, Insulin & Performance

In this episode, I share about how important insulin and blood sugar are for overall health and performance and what to do about them if you're not getting the results you want in life.
