002 – The Trainer’s Mindset with Gary Swarni

 The Backstory

I first met Gary Swarni in a men’s group with the WakeUpWarrior movement led by Garrett J White and Sam Falsafi in early 2017.  After spending a few weeks training under this program, I personally hired him to help me break out of my fitness pit and the rest, as you say, is history.  More of his training was dealing with the stories and hurdles I had placed before me after YEARS of poor fitness and eating habits.  And thus, why I wanted him to be the first interview here at WORTHY – so that as you embark on a new year, you have this man in your corner.  Not only is he a personal trainer, but he literally coaches and trains other gym owners and trainers.  His passion for this is quickly evident and you’ll see how he could help you break your mold.  Listen in to meet, Gary Swarni.
