What's going on guys, welcome back to another episode of the Relentless Life! Today we celebrate episode #50 which is a big deal to me. I started this journey 3 years ago and couldn't be more grateful for the conversation had and people I have had the pleasure in meeting. This is my own learning platform that I am able to also share with you...The Relentless Life Tribe. Getting into todays episode, please help me in welcoming Nika Sedghi. I first met Nika 3 years ago during the filming of the first season of Dwayne Johnsons new athletic competition series "The Titan Games". We both shared this humbling experience among 60 other athletes. Nika and I connected mutually on social media for our love of health and nutrition. Like myself, Nika holds her CPT certification (through NASM) and just recently received her nutrition certification. She is a former D1 water polo athlete as well as former figure bodybuilder. Nika found once she realized most of these bodybuilders were using PED's, she didn't have a shot as she prided her self natural bodybuilding. To add to her resume, Nika was also on 2 TV shows. The first being one for CMT and second being for NBC (The Titan Games). She is currently a full time Mechanical Engineer working on gas turbine engines. With all of this established, she also has a heart condition that originally sparked her passion for health and nutrition. After being diagnosed with a condition known as Supra Ventricular tachycardia (SVT) and elevated tryptophan levels, the doctors notified Nika she may never be able to play sports again. Nika has defied what all doctors told her and is currently living the lifestyle as a relentlessly sound athlete. Staying health and fit during the pandemic, she rides her bike up to 26 miles daily and works out at the home gym she constructed for herself. Being known on social media for he Neeks approved foods, her followers are able to get a real good grasp on what has ample levels of micro nutrition vs. what does not. Nika is the queen of nutrition labels and dives deep into what is actually in the ingredients of every day foods. I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation with a fellow friend, athlete, and trainer. Please join us in learning more on what makes a "healthy lifestyle", our own perspectives as trainers on diet/nutrition, and why leaving a legacy should be something you desire.
Lesson of the Episode: You are only in control of so many variables, make sure you optimize what you can control!

This Week on Episode #49 the Relentless Life, we welcome Marcus Jessup. Marcus is a college drop out turned success! He has put on lightening/display shows for Artists such as Major Lazer and Diplo, along with many top tier DJ's and artists. Marcus was born and raised in Indiana and realized into his mid teens that he need to get out of his small town. He felt as though there was more for him out there. It wasn't until he found himself so hopelessly bored in a church sermon (Marcus himself is actually very faithful in Christianity), that he discovered his curiosity and love for putting on a show. Entertainment is in his blood! Marcus discovered this inner desire at the age of 14. He has had his ups and downs since discovering his passion, but truly has represented a relentless lifestyle. Marcus and I share the same age (24), and just like myself Marcus lives to inspire. He feels as though God gave him a specific purpose. He dropped out of school because he realized his calling had already been found. He took that RISK, moved to Miami for a few short years (during this time is when I met him on a cruise in 2017), and then set his roots out in Los Angeles. His job requires him to go on tour with the bands and artists he is putting on lighting shows for, allowing him to travel across the country. What an awesome job!! Marcus and I discussed the importance of content (content is king), repetition and pounding the pavement, and what taking risks look like. This value packed episode is one you will definitely not want to miss! Check it out on your drive to or from work, or even while getting some chores done around the house. I always enjoy a good podcast while working out (though this isn't for everyone). To Wrap it up, Marcus describes Relentless as "UNSTOPPABLE". Like a Freight Train full speed ahead. I loved that analogy and while definitely start to use it when describing what we represent here in the Relentless Life Community. I hope you enjoy this well conversed episode!
Now Go MANIFEST THE LIFE YOU DESIRE!
Lesson of the Episode: Knowledge is power, but the knowledge of our self can be truly life changing. Knowing who we are at our core, is what true power looks like.

Today on The Relentless Life, Chance breaks down how to live everyday with a relentless mindset. Setting yourself up for success starting with your mind. For Chance it starts with 3 Core Values...Dreaming Big, Never Settling, and Always Smiling! Chance ties in his Relentless Lifestyle with the extraordinary values his book provides. Tune in to catch the full picture of why Chance believes so much in his vision. He will take this movement to an international level. This is only the beginning!!
Lesson of the Episode:
" Believe in yourself and the rest will follow" ~ Chance D. Galloway
I made the life changing decision 3 years ago to begin a journey I would forever be grateful for. That journey began with 6 words... Dream Big, Never Settle, Always Smile. Those words are my life motto, what I live by each and every day. Originating in our family bathroom, that truly empowering statement left a profound mark on me. At the age of 21 I decided it was time to write about these words that my mother passionately instilled into my sister and I. Here we are 51,911 words, 18 months of editing/writing/publishing, and a tattoo later.... releasing a podcast about my experience. This is nothing short of humbling. I am beyond the peak of feeling joyous to share my experience of writing my first publication with you. Not just that, but the special meaning behind D.N.A.
DNA is in control of storing very valuable information, while also being captain of when to express its stored components. It is of utmost importance for humans, otherwise there would be no you or I. There would be no existing! Just as DNA carries the codes for proteins to be made, and proteins are vital for most living functions, the same is true for expressing and living by D.N.A. Without these THREE CORE VALUES, we will never reach our true potential. Unlike actual DNA, we wont die from not expressing these new found Values. However, that life we all dream of living will cease to exist.
Remain Relentless and consistently pursue D.N.A (Dream Big, Never Settle, Always Smile).
Lesson of the Episode: Dream Big, Never Settle, and Always Smile
"The world will be yours if you live by these THREE CORE VALUES " ~ Chance Galloway
November 14th, 2020 at 11:00 am was the first time I competed in a 10k obstacle race. 6.4 miles and 28 obstacles later, I was mentally and physically drained. You here of these tough mudders, spartan races, all terrain mud races, and other big named impossible looking races in the fitness/race community. One of these race communities is known as savage race. A community built on team work, persistence, and a lion mentality. I had the priveledge of experiencing this first hand with some of my favorite people. My Team! When I heard that gun go off at the start line, I was full of ambition and eager to cross that finish line. My best friend Tony was side by side with me ( also swarmed with energy) ready to excel past his absolute limits. About 250 yards into this beast of a race, I had to tell Tony to slow down and say at a steady pace. Many of the competitors around us took off like lightening only to come to a halting stop around mile #1. This did not happen to Tony and I, as we prevailed past each obstacle only to continue to run. Endurance. That's the name of the game. Both in this race ( all races ), and the most important race of them all, life! These 6 miles challenged the two of us tremendously, but we refused to stop running. Everything inside of me was screaming to collapse ( especially around mile 5). My legs were completely overwhelmed from my cardiovascular system (taken on way to much blood), everything from my hips down was covered in thick smelly mud, and my skin was hot to the touch from the relentless Florida sun. I know to some racers this is nothing but a warm up, but to a non racer like myself, this is absolute hell. Regardless of any pain or discomfort I was feeling, I did not care. My mind was no longer in control of my body. This feeling was euphoric, and I am already starving for it again. Whether you run, walk, jog, or mix it up, a race such as savage race will challenge your mental and physical state as much as your willing to let it. Get your savage on, and breach your potential.
Lesson of the Episode: Never be concerned with who's in front of you, for they might just be on their last wind. At the same time never be concerned with those behind you, for if you look back the path may stray from where you're heading.
"Just as you would in a 10k obstacle race, you must pace yourself through life in order to make it to the finish line " ~ Chance and Tony
I recently stumbled upon a pretty rad new active release tool known as the Pso-Rite. Two words, GAME CHANGER.
4 years ago I was in a very dark place. It started with being an avid athlete (weightlifting, baseball, football, runner) in high school. Over time, I developed poor movement patterns and it wasn't long until my body began to develop chronic symptoms. Some including: tightness along my entire right side, tingling down my arm (pinched nerve), neck spasms, and muscle pains. This resulted in decreased performance in the gym, a very depressed/dark mental state, and eventually immense chronic pain/discomfort. After 4 years, hundreds of hours spent on doctor visits/testing, and around $10,000 spent on treatment, I was at my breaking point. I had no idea where else to look. Well it wasn't until the combination of rolfing ( the manipulation of structural alignment via the FASCIA) and the PSO-RITE, that I luckily found relief. This tool allows for the deep penetration of the Psoas ( the primary connector of our torso to our lower body). It acts as the primary hip flexor of our femur (upper thigh). To express just how important this muscle is, the psoas is the primary mover in the motion of walking. The Psoas Major connects from the head of the femur (upper thigh bone) to the lower lumbar region of our spine. It has multiple connection points in the lumbar region and also at the very bottom of the thoracic region (T-12). The reason this tool is so helpful is the design of it! It is made to perfectly allow the hips to sink down exposing the normally deep psoas. Now in this position, the psoas is exposed and able to be released in a vulnerable position. Once you hit the spot, it feels so (Pso) Rite!
I am not sponsored, nor do I receive any promotion for supporting this product. I simply believe in the technology behind the design and have personally benefited tremendously from it.
Check out the link below to grab your Pso-Rite!
Side Note: I chose red because you can't miss it and it sticks out like a sore thumb!

Dr. Stokke believes in the power of natural healing and stresses the importance of spinal health for professional athletes as well as those who just enjoy staying active. He offers a variety of chiropractic care treatments that have the potential to relieve your pain, prevent injuries, and even improve your game.
Dr. Stokke took an interest in holistic medicine after suffering a neck injury during a high school football game. At this time, he realized how medicine provides temporary relief from pain, but doesn’t correct it. Dr. Stokke then sought out advice from a chiropractor who had a tremendous impact on his discomfort using noninvasive procedures like a spinal alignment. The chiropractor alleviated his neck pain, sleep disturbances, and even chronic migraines.
Shortly after discovering the power of chiropractic care, Dr. Stokke began his education to earn his doctorate of chiropractic. By 1996, he completed his doctorate from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota, which provided him with knowledge of holistic treatments, as well as the skill to help others the way that chiropractor helped him.
As an avid sports participant for many years, Dr. Stokke understands the connection between physical activity and accomplishment. For this reason, Dr. Stokke enjoys improving the game of athletes and helping them reach their goals. He has worked with well-known sports figures, including Minnesota Twins pitchers Kyle Gibson and Trevor May. Additionally, Dr. Stokke and his team assist anyone who wants to improve their physical health or is in need of pain relief.
Lesson of the Episode: Do what you love, love what you do!
" Use it, don't lose it." ~ Dr. Darrin Stokke
From star athlete, to brain surgery survivor, to young entrepreneur & keynote speaker in less than 3 years ... Jordan Rae is a shinning beam of light and positivity at only 22 years old.
She excelled as a student athlete and began playing softball at the age of 4 with the dreams of being a college athlete. Jordan and her family traveled throughout the United States competing at a high elite level to help obtain their goal.
At age 16 Jordan watched her mom battle and beat breast cancer, and at age 17 she (Jordan) was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation: A condition in which brain tissue extends into the spinal canal, present at birth. This condition was discovered after she blacked out on the softball field during her junior year of high school due to the Cerebrospinal fluid being blocked to her brain. The diagnosis led to her having a major 9+ hour brain surgery 3 months later. At only 22, she is still struggling to find the right treatment to help alleviate some of her symptoms.
Based on her personal experiences, she saw the need for these “all in one” medical logs to benefit anyone who is battling an illness just like she is. She wants to make a difference by helping people take control of their health and be an active participant in managing acute chronic conditions. She created these limitless medical logs to meet an important need.

Things can change in the blink of an eye (literally), and it is up to you to decide what you will do when life decides to throw you a series of curve balls. Get up, dust yourself off, and keep on plugging away at discovering your purpose and sharing it with the world.

This is the day that Rani Gupta's life changed forever. Since the time she was 12 she was so fascinated with that word 'Engineer'. Her parents saved every last penny they made and funded the start of Rani's education. That wasn't even the difficult part of her educational and young life's journey. Rani had to overcome so many obstacles to earn the title of Fords First Female Engineer. After working at Ford for 34 years and successfully bringing her entire family to America to live a better life, Rani became a massive impact and influence on men and women (specifically) around the world. Join Rani and I on Episode 26 of The Relentless Life, to discover the true definition of Relentless and how she became who she is today.
