Perhaps most appropriately, when I met up with Steve Willis a few days ago in a lovely inner suburb of Sydney, we conducted the Podcast as he sat cross-legged, Yoga style, on the floor of his apartment building gym.
I took the easier option, requiring a lot less flexibility, and sat on the seat of the Lat Pulldown.
This was a Podcast I’d been trying to put together for some while, I personally I knew of him and about him like most people in Australia, as a trainer on the hit TV show, Biggest Loser and most recently as a contestant on the reality show Survivor, where he lasted 40 days (of 50 in total).
We had a really honest and open chat, underpinned by Steve’s insightful and introspective view on how he wants to live and stay calm, present and in the moment as our increasingly busy world spins around us.
We talked about his foray into the elite levels of CrossFit, (he placed 4th at the 2009 Games) his career in the elite special forces of the military, and his journey into the highly demanding job of prime-time reality TV.
It seems that no matter what this guy touches in his world and what area of business he is involved in – he simply gives everything his greatest effort and attention to detail.
He’s gathered his skills over time, he’s a learner of life’s lessons and he’s clearly a passionate and soulful being who’s doing great things in the Health, Fitness and Wellness industry, giving back to others and being a great example of living his own values on a daily basis.
When I spoke to him, it was a very smooth, easy conversation, but packed with valuable and insightful lessons and truths.
He’s definitely in command of his life, I hope you enjoy this Podcast with Steve Willis.
