TMHS 075: Fitness Confidential – With America’s Angriest Trainer Vinnie Tortorich #NSNG

Since it’s inception, the movie industry has heavily influenced the behavior of our culture. Most notably, Hollywood is unmatched at setting the bar for how we strive towards our health and fitness goals.

What guy wouldn’t want to swipe the look of Hugh Jackman in X-Men: Days of Future Past? (Minus the bushy sideburns, of course). Chris Evans, Jason Statham, Brad Pitt, and Mark Wahlberg are some notable names that have guys around the world rushing to the gym after a new movie comes out.

For the ladies, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Biel and many others have inspired women to take their health and fitness more seriously. The interesting thing is that these Hollywood figures, who most people have never actually met, are far more influential than any family member who’s preaching to you to get in shape.

Hollywood motivates us. It is what it is.

Now, this has given birth to the concept of the “Celebrity Trainer”. The individual trusted with the responsibility to bring out the physical best of the people who we all aspire to be like. Considering that it’s accomplished in a health-giving manner (there are probably more PEDs in Hollywood than in professional sports fyi) these celebrity trainers are often the cream of the crop, and known for getting great results. That’s where Vinnie Tortorich comes in…

Vinnie has been a Celebrity Trainer since before the title became en vogue. He’s gotten to where he is, funny enough, by caring more than most other people. He cares about his clients, he cares about doing good work, and he cares about the public at large getting honest information that really works.

Today you’ll get to learn directly from Vinnie in this fun interview about Fitness Confidential, NSNG, endurance sports, and a whole lot more.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • What the #1 key to becoming a celebrity trainer really is.
  • How working for free could put you on the fast track to enormous success and notoriety.
  • The secret behind the outrage of “America’s Angriest Trainer”.
  • What NSNG is and why it works for health and weight loss.
  • Why sugar causes you to eat more sugar.
  • Why diets have a negative association and create separation between people.
  • What endurance athletes are doing to become “fat adapted”.
  • How to use sugar strategically when you “go hard” in endurance events.
  • What foods to eat and what foods to avoid to make your body start using fat for fuel.
  • What the keto flu is and how to reduce its impact.
  • Why most multivitamins don’t work well (and are actually potentially dangerous).

    WOW! What a great interview. I love that you are disseminating such critically important information. Enjoyed your sleep book, by the way. Has helped me so much AND given my husband something to laugh at in the evenings when I’m sporting my blue-light blocking glasses! And I love your voice too – so grateful that you don’t do that hyped-up-on-steroids-radio-announcer type voice! One of my pet hates being more of a BBC kind of girl myself. Thank you for the work that you do and kudos to Vinnie for great work too.
