[Update, January 21st] A quick note about the title, since we had someone asking about it who seemed put off by it. At the beginning of the show we noted that it was just us three guys and that none of the ladies that often appear on the show could make it this week. We joked that it was The All Guy Show, and that (sarcastically) nothing sells better than a fitness show hosted by a bunch of guys. The “no broads” thing was very tongue-in-cheek, as you can see by listening to the first little while of the episode. I chose “broads” because I didn’t want to be offensive since we love the women who do the show with us, yet I was going for that kind of “alpha male, we don’t need no broads around here!” kind of joke. That’s it. Just a little light humor :)
The show this week is myself, Greg Hoffman and Kevin Webster. Kevin has been a member of our private Facebook group for quite a while but is making his AMFC debut this week!
We kicked off with Kevin’s backstory – where he’s coming from, what his fitness and health goals are and what he hopes to get out of the group. Like several of us, he’s aiming for dropping about 25-30 pounds or so.
Greg brought us up to speed on his surgery rehab, I described the cycle of depression that I went through at the end of 2011, and then we moved on to the main topic of the week: Affiliate Summit West 2012 in Las Vegas. The climate, the restaurant food, the illnesses, the walking… there’s a lot to talk about!
Our recommendation? You should probably skip Serendipity 3 outside of Caesar’s Palace.
We have a great discussion about alcohol in the last segment of the show. To wit, here is Greg’s recipe for a new drink called the Shawn Collins (it’s like a John Collins, which itself is like a Tom Collins):
1 1/2 oz bourbon
1 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz sugar syrup
maraschino cherry for garnish
orange slice for garnish
1 shot of Bud Light
We finished up talking about JensonUSA and their excellent selection of bikes and bicycle equipment. Go check ’em out. (Follow-up… I actually did get on the bike after recording this episode. Woot!)
Thanks for listening!
