If you're looking for motivation to take steps in your own life towards the life you really want to live, this episode is for you. We chat about all the highs and lows on the journey towards building Dialed Health. Hint: It wasn’t roses and butterflies for Derek to get to where he is.

Derek shows us how sometimes we need to put up with the dirty work and not be afraid to work our asses to get to where we want to be. Many of us expect our journeys to be linear, when in fact, it’s going to require a lot of ups and downs to get to where we want to be. But, with passion and persistence, and a hard work ethic, we can accomplish so much more than we realize.

We start the podcast off by going all the way back to Derek’s high school and pro riding days, how he met his wife Lish, how he decided to make the transition from racing to personal training, and how the idea of Dialed Health was formulated.
