Listen to the UNcivilized Podcast:


Transform each loss into gain, every weakness into strength, and each failure into fuel to keep moving forward. Today's guest is Jay Ferruggia, a man who has struggled with his thoughts and body image for years. After building dream life he lost everything at 31. He organized to get his life back on track, and now through fitness, he helps people do the same. This episode will put the reality of what good nutrition, exercise, and fitness mean into perspective and dispel all the myths circulating aroundr the internet. 
Jay Ferruggia has been helping guys get jacked and become the strongest version of themselves since 1994. Nobody has trained more skinny guys than he has and still does. He is the coach to coaches and the trainer to trainers. The one they all come to for advice and new training techniques. Unlike most of today's "influencers" and gurus, his approach is based on thousands of hours of real-world experience, working with countless clients. You may have seen his work in Men's Health, Muscle & Fitness, Maximum Fitness, Men's Fitness, Fast Company, Huffington Post, LiveStrong, Muscle & Fitness Hers, Shape, Entrepreneur, Details, or on ESPN or CBS. Do you know how group training is a big thing these days? He invented that in the mid-'90s.
