Jay Ferruggia is bald, jacked and tattoed. So it's easy to be intimidated by him or judge him from afar, as I once did. But scratch the surface and under the muscular build is a sensitive, inquisitive soul who has made it his life's work to strengthen others physically, psychologically and spiritually, as he did for me for a recent role. Our conversation covers topics as specific as the benefits of sea salt and top training techniques, to Jay's systematic strategies to overcome his "introvert" label and become a super-connector. Jay's transformation from a "skinny-fat" kid from Jersey to influencing tens of thousands of followers through his books, his podcast, his articles and his weekend retreat events is the stuff of movies. You will come away knowing more about how to transform your body and, more importantly, your mind in order live up to your full potential.
