We’re really confident in what we do at GMB. And we realize that sometimes that confidence can give the appearance of snobbery in certain contexts.
You know what? We’re okay with that.
In this episode of the GMB Fitness Skills podcast, Ryan and Andy talk about why being a bit of a snob isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and why you should be a little snobby too if you’re doing what you believe in.
They’ll also talk about using weights and bodyweight training together, and some of the things you should be careful about when doing that.
So listen up!
