When it comes to getting in shape, on some level, we all know what we need to do. But that doesn’t make it any easier to stick to a routine or get the results we want.
On today’s episode, twin brothers Coleman and Kennedy Collins talk about why most fitness advice out there doesn’t work. We talk about the best way to build the habit of regular exercise according to behavioral science, why sometimes a simple text message from a friend can help build accountability, and how to stay healthy even when life gets in the way.
Coleman and Kennedy Collins
Gents, this is a first for The Distilled Man podcast. Not only is this the first time I’m doing a tandem interview, but it’s definitely the first time I’ve interviewed identical twins. Once again, my guests are Coleman and Kennedy Collins. They are the founders of Ohmcoach, a remote fitness coaching service that helps people set personalized fitness goals and keeps them accountable and on track, even when they have hectic schedules. I really enjoyed talking to these guys, but I have to admit, I gave up pretty quickly on trying to distinguish between their voices. Either way, it’s a fun episode.
