The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

“How much can I experience and not just, you know, ‘I saw the hotel lobby. Cool.’ I want to be able to experience stuff. And being physically fit and capable allows me to expand that world so much more,” says Ralph Rajs, COO of Forma Gym, and long-time friend and business partner of JC.

Ralph came on the podcast to drop some knowledge on how he lives his life and how he keeps it going, even in his 50s. He has no plans to stop being physically active anytime soon, so anyone using the excuse, “I’m getting too old,” needs to listen to this podcast! In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • 3 things that get people going competitively and wanting to do more
  • Finding passion in fitness, and taking care of yourself while doing it
  • How life in the gym affects life outside of the gym
  • How the good fitness clubs will survive the future
