Ep. 17 Recap – Montana ‘Too Pretty’ Love

Having first stepped foot into a boxing gym at the ripe age of five, Montana ‘Too Pretty’ Love has become one of the fastest rising professional boxers in the sport over the past two years.  This after having taken approximately 180 amateur fights in his youth, teen and early 20’s.  Now at only 24 years of age, his current undefeated 10-0 professional record – coupled with his genuine swag and flashy lifestyle – have earned him over 50,000 followers on Instagram alone.

Montana, who also rocks a sombrero during his pre and post fights, is currently training with Adrien Broner and other professionals to help him get ready for some bigger fights this summer.  From fancy footwork to precision punching and a lot of smack talk in between, I look forward to seeing where Montana’s career goes next.  Can he be boxing’s next star?  Only time will tell…

Ep. 16 Recap – Mike Hudock

Swim, bike, run!  That about sums up the lifestyle of Mike Hudock, an elite triathlete who makes time to work out twice each day in between medical school classes and studies.  Having begun his triathlete journey six years ago as a freshman in college, Mike has remained disciplined in his training regimen throughout and has barely missed a week, let alone a day in that time frame.

Mike and I had an open conversation about mental health and the many benefits that exercise plays in relieving stress and anxiety.  It is unfathomable to us how anyone can choose to not exercise, especially since we have both achieved so many mental, emotional and physical rewards from it.  So many people find the excuse that they do not have the time to workout.  That’s an illegitimate excuse.

You must make the time if you want something.  Then, in turn, you’ll have the time.

If you are interested in learning more about physical fitness with an emphasis on running, in general, then I suggest you go check out Ep. 16.  I look forward to Mike’s continued ascent in the triathlete and running world.  His next major event will be the Athens Half Marathon in Athens, Ohio, on Sunday, April 15th.  Good luck, Mike!


Ep. 15 Recap – Dr. Adam Hedaya

Dr. Adam Hedaya is a Double Board Certified physician specializing in pain management.  His anti-opioid prescribing approach struck me as an approach that many other doctors should begin taking.  With all of the opioid addiction issues in this country – many of which lead to heroin use – the medical profession as a whole has some serious changes it must make when it comes to the prescribing of medications.  Doctors must be cognizant of the devastating affects these drugs have on their patients and should seek to avoid opioid prescriptions wherever possible so that the risk of heroin use and abuse is mitigated.  Undoubtedly, lives will be saved.

Check out Dr. Hedaya at Cleveland Pain Care if you are in need of a pain management specialist to help you achieve a more comfortable, enjoyable lifestyle.

Ep. 20 – Dr. M. Kara, M.D., anti-aging expert specializing in hormone replacement therapy

Dr. Mahmud Kara is the medical director at Affinity Whole Health, a hormone replacement therapy and anti-aging clinic with locations in Cleveland and Columbus.  He is recognized as one of America’s top experts in anti-aging medicine.

In this episode, we hear about the types of services and treatments that Affinity Whole Health provides its patients.  We talk about the stigmas associated with hormone replacement therapy and the reasons those stigmas are off-base.  Dr. Kara provides insight into the many different types of clients they take and the astounding results these patients see through Affinity’s various customized programs.  We end with a discussion about the many reasons that hormone replacement and optimization are vital to living a quality life for men and women of all ages.
