Becoming the Healthiest Version of Yourself with Jason Priest

Being the leader of your family and the best version of yourself starts with prioritizing your own health.

Above anything else, my priority is being healthy and working on my fitness. Because if I’m not well, if I’m stuck in a hospital bed somewhere because of a heart attack, then my family and business are going to suffer too.­

That’s why I was so excited to speak with Jason Priest – the founder of Dad Bod Health and the Man Up Community. Jason knows this truth better than almost anyone.

After he spent six years as an ICU nurse, saving the lives of men his age who hadn’t prioritized their health, he knew he had to do something. That experience gave Jason the drive to help 1,000,000 men hold themselves to a higher standard and become the best versions of themselves.

Jason joined me on the What Are You Made Of? podcast to talk about what it means to be accountable, why your health is your most valuable asset, why starting imperfectly is better than waiting for perfection, and how you can keep eating burgers and drinking beer whilst being healthy.
