Overcoming Andropause, the ‘Menopause’ for Men with Chris Gatchis

Chris Gatchis has been fascinated by the real effects that a properly balanced nutrition and fitness can have on your entire life since he was a teen. But when he started his own nutrition company, Axis Labs, he noticed something strangely off with his body. He was still following a fitness regimen he knew to work for him in the past, and was currently working for others, but found himself gaining weight, feeling sluggish, and just not feeling his prime. When he went to the doctor for a checkup as he and his wife were trying to conceive, the problem came to light. His testosterone levels were frighteningly low. Because he had the resources, he decided to do something about it himself, and find a way to help other men in the same situation. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Chris and discussing some of the fascinating realities he found once he started researching his problem. What he didn’t expect was to find a problem that is relevant to every male over the age of 22. Testosterone therapy, Chris finds, can be the key to reviving your energy, your sex drive, and your natural vigor-and have you feeling like you did when you were 20. He details his insights on andropause, improving testosterone levels, natural healing and more.

Fall in Love With Being Fit with Lazo Freeman

One look at Lazo Freeman and you’d never imagine he was anything but the hyper-confident, successful man you see in front of you. However, his love affair with fitness originally happened because of a disconnect he was seeing in his life with the way he wanted it to be. Early on in life he realized he could not control many outside circumstances that were affecting his self-esteem. What he could control and work on was his physical self, and he worked on that, believing it would lead to clarity of mind. Turns out, it was one of the best decisions he ever made. Within the first few weeks of beginning his training, he won a body transformation competition, and found himself hooked. It turned into a part-time job while finishing school, then a full-time job, then an incredibly lucrative career in teaching others how to meet the goals they want in their life by first loving their body and learning to love fitness. I sat down with Lazo and discussed what he knows best: transforming your life through fitness. A bodybuilder, transformation coach, and successful entrepreneur, he is constantly reinventing his persona and pushing his limits. Some amazing insights that Lazo reveals in our discussion include why your diet needs to work with your lifestyle, how to become confident and more.
