Just like Sinatra used to say, at the end of the day, when you’ve made it, you want to say “I did it my way” …

One guy really taking that to heart in the fitness industry is NATE GREEN.

Instead of trying to fit anyone else’s mold on what it mean to be in fitness, Nate’s does his own thing – but he goes so hard and pushes at such a high level, that he makes it work.  With his book Built for Show now in book stores, other big projects in the works, along with his usual gig over at T-Nation, you might say Nate’s having more fun than anyone else in fitness (maybe even me).  But some of the biggest names in the industry have got his back, so it’s obviously not just all play and no work for him.

I was glad to have Nate back on the blog, this time for a full audio conversation, to share what’s new and to give more insights into the beliefs that drive him.  He’s an unlikely but very timely role model for all the new trainers who want to get started in this business and turn it into your own reality.

Here’s the full audio:

I don’t know if you caught it, but behind the slacker and badboy image Nate works so hard to maintain through his fitness lifestyle blog, The Nate Green Experience, there was a lot of hitting the pavement, banging on doors,  and busting his ass to get to where he is.

Ha! You can hold out waiting, but it looks like the rules for success still haven’t changed!
