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.

001 – Inside Out

 Every show needs an intro.  Every message, a messenger.

So here I am, your host.  I have a passion for showing people the possibility within themselves.  I do that in my clinic as a chiropractor and I do that as a coach with “Wake Up Chiro”.

After years of working with families, I felt called to start a podcast called “The SuperParent Syndrome” named after so many of the busy moms and dad trying to juggle everything from working, working out, and giving their kids everything their hearts can desire.  Parenting is not for the weak and as I joined the parenting ranks, I too became devoted to doing my best to create a real legacy.

But this project, this project has become a passion of mine after doing THE WORK (a Byron Katie shoutout), about many of the stories and fears I have collected over the years.  It really began after my affair and divorce and the path of self-loathing I took since.  I actively punished myself and my family and practice took the abuse from that.  After finding a mentor by the name of Garrett J. White (founder of WakeUpWarrior and the WarriorBook), he and his team helped me find my power and the forgiveness I was seeking.  And the ongoing work since to destroy my old stories and lies of fear and self-doubt.  My debt to them is my gift to you.

I aim to UNLEASH you.

I aim to REMIND you of who you TRULY are.

I aim to ARM you to help yourself.

Prepare yourself.
