||CleanMan In The Arena - Randy Brown||A special bonus episode of Off The Strength to bring you into your weekend feeling motivated. The team welcomes UFC fighter Randy "Rude Boy" Brown to the table. He shares his experience with fitness, health and the fight game. He shares his goals past and present and what is next for his career. Find Randy on IG @touchngo_ and you hopefully will see him fight in Philly coming up. It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

I had a hard time writing this review because I couldn’t find the right words to express how I felt. So let me just say I am hooked. Now I have to play catch up and listen to the ones I’ve missed. You gentlemen are awesome. I am so impressed.
I really appreciate what you guys are promoting! Wellness and self-care is so important. Thanks to you guys I’m more cognizant of the importance of my well being. So as a start for Lent I gave up alcohol and committed to exercising for 30 minutes a day. I also committed to turning off the t.v. after a long day of work, reading instead and getting to bed earlier. Keep up the awesome work!!!

“Reset the expectations”
I’m not a podcast person, but I’m hooked! These gentlemen are funny and insightful and their discussions address all facets of fitness and wellness — physical, emotional, social, financial, and beyond. It’s a great way to get through the MTA commute or keep mindful on a long run.
