Join me and my friend Liron, a fitness coach from Los Angeles, as we discuss the complex relationship between fitness trends, body image, and attracting potential partners. We share personal stories and insights into how men and women design their workout routines in hopes of gaining attention from the opposite sex. We reveal how looks and health intersect in the social environment of the gym.  We also talk about the concept of "parallel play" at the gym, which is a unique way for people to work out individually while still experiencing a sense of community. This shows the multi-faceted nature of modern workout culture. We also explore cultural beauty standards and how they influence relationships. We look at how subjective attraction can lead people to pursue a "trophy" partner, and the potential judgments that can arise from relationships with large age gaps. We discuss dating preferences, examining how much weight men and women place on physical attributes versus qualities like security and confidence, which could be the ultimate universal attraction. Don’t miss this episode as we give our thoughts on how dating apps have revolutionized the search for companionship, but may also complicate the path to lasting connections.

Women, have you ever wondered if you should be training differently than men? Tune into today’s episode!  In this episode, Liron and I dive into the often debated question of whether women should train differently than men. Our discussion explores the psychological and physiological aspects of exercise preferences and the importance of a well-rounded fitness routine. We address the tendency for women to gravitate towards cardiovascular exercises, often due to concerns about building too much muscle or appearing "bulky." However, we emphasize that women are meant to lift weights just as much as men and that doing so offers numerous benefits, especially as we age, including improved bone density, muscle mass, and metabolism. Throughout the discussion, we stress the importance of symmetrical training for both men and women, highlighting the aesthetic and functional benefits of working the upper body. While we acknowledge that the best exercise is the one you'll actually do, we encourage listeners to embrace shorter, more intense workouts for optimal results. Liron Kayvan founded BFLA in 2019.

Are you struggling to develop a meaningful relationship? Do you always find yourself in “situationships?”  If you want to develop a meaningful relationship - you should avoid dopamine dating (consistently swiping right).

In an age where screens and social media are eroding our kids' self-confidence, it's time to rebel.  We can't just stand by as their self-esteem and dreams get crushed under the weight of the digital world. The next generation of world-changers deserves better - and we've got to show them how to build the resilience and belief in themselves to make it happen. In this episode of Habits & Hustle, I’m joined by Sonny Caberwal, founder of the game-changing Legends Build Legends app. This visionary entrepreneur is on a mission to build unstoppable confidence in kids from the ground up. After a major health wake-up call made him reevaluate his priorities, Sonny created a brilliant solution to tackle the modern crisis in children's mental health and social skills. We also discuss the unintended impact of overparenting, the dire need for resilience training in Gen Alpha, and how a simple shift in perspective can turn perceived "weaknesses" into superpowers. You'll hear strategies for leveraging technology to personalize learning, foster community engagement, and instill a lifelong practice of positive affirmations. Sonny's taking the lid off alternative education models, predicting how corporate big dogs could revolutionize the industry. Sonny Caberwal is the CEO and founder of Legends Lab, a non-profit focused on supporting the awareness and accessibility of programming and the assessment of confidence in children.
