In this episode, we have a reposted episode from back in 2018 where Stuart chats to Eric Helms from 3D Muscle Journey. The conversation is centred around Eric's experiences of being a personal trainer back in 2005-2012, what this has taught him and how it's shaped how he coaches and teaches now. Other topics covered include time management, use of social media, improving introspection, book recommendations and more.

Happy New Year everyone and thank you so much for listening to the LTB Podcast!

P.S. No timestamps for this one but the interview with Eric starts at 02.10
