Jay Ferruggia helps people become the strongest version of themselves and is often featured in the worlds best performance magazines. Jay is the guy elite athletes and coaches turn to get squared away, but it hasn't been an easy path for Jay. He has experienced physical and mental weakness, depression, insecurity, crippling anxiety, addiction and bankruptcy. Jay is a guy who has been through a lot and genuinely wants to share what he knows to help us get our mojo working.   How should we be thinking about using exercise? We train for lots of reasons, but not true health and wellness. How should we measure wellness? Bruce Lee said "Before I studied the art, a punch to me was just like a punch, a kick just like a kick. After I learned the art, a punch was no longer a punch, a kick no longer a kick. Now that I've understood the art, a punch is just like a punch, a kick just like a kick." What’s a punch for Jay? Jay's a fan of Essentialism by Greg McGowan. When he walks into the gym, what's the non-negotiable essential? How important is community or connection for the longevity of life? Improv brought out Jay’s weaknesses, what were those weaknesses? Jay grew up in a violent household in fear; how did he eventually face that past and step into his future? When he looks in the mirror of truth, Jay describes the man he wants to be in the eyes of his wife, Jen. Does Jay fear anything today? Jay has an arm tattoo “ Relentless” - why does it reference his dad? Does Jay still keep a picture of his stepdad, Ed, next to his bed? He's known as the relationship guy. What’s the single best thing he ever started doing to create this amazing network? Has Jay ever created an alter ego that he stepped into to take him beyond perceived barriers? Jay trains to be ready - ready for what? Is death something that is in Jay’s conscious mind as he plans for his future? How does Jay record, retain, and retrieve his learnings? Does Jay actively think about stacking skills? Jay’s greatest lesson taken from Stoicism What would Jay do differently if he went at it again?     LINKS   Jason Ferruggia website http://jasonferruggia.com   Athletic Greens https://athleticgreens.com/us   The Mojo Radio Show Rocktober https://www.themojoradioshow.com/rocktober-2019.html   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/themojoradioshowpodcast   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

What a Ride!” ― Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967
