Jacob Schepis is a natural bodybuilder, powerlifter, and the founder of JPS Health and Fitness in Melbourne, Australia.

We met when he hosted all of us 3DMJ Coaches at one of his facilities for a bodybuilding seminar in July of 2017.

I wanted him on here to pick his brain about the personal training and coaching company he’s built and why I admire it so much.

It blows me away how passionate and tuned-in he seems to be with all facets of the fitness industry while starting a new family and keeping his employees content without completely losing his shit.

If you have ever wanted to own a gym or manage a staff, there are A LOT of nuggets in here for you to relate to or learn from.— Read More…

Lawrence is the director of operations at Shredded by Science, which is probably the most kick-ass place for the education and betterment of personal trainers and coaches on the internet.

Aside from that, he is just one of my damn good friends and has an incredible sense of humor and a pretty neat outlook on the world which I love hearing about.

This convo is just a catch-up sesh between friends, but it covers quite a large array of topics.

We chat about how he structures his entire work day, his job responsibilities within Shredded By science and how that company runs, our personal business struggles, his trip to Vietnam, the new products and plans for De Novo Nutrition (which is a supplement company that Shredded By Science is now partnering up with), and a whole lot about his current transition from powerlifting to weightlifting.

Towards the end of our talk, we over a TON of resources and websites that helped me when I was first learning the snatch and the clean and jerk. I hope you guys can find a lot of that useful as well.— Read More…

Andrea & Friends 007 – LS McClain

In this conversation, I’m talking to my good friend and World Champion Powerlifter, LS McClain.

LS was actually one of my coaches at cheerleading camp in college!

We didn’t meet again until the end of 2015 at the Olympia expo and have become closer and closer ever since. Especially because he is one of my boyfriend’s best friends and a part of the close-knit family we hang around with quite often.

In this particular chat, we talk about his upcoming meet at USAPL Raw Nationals, his career as a cheerleading coach at Texas State University, his YouTube channel, his clothing line (McClain & Crcl), his life as an online powerlifting coach, and a whole bunch more.— Read More…

Andrea & Friends 006 – Abdullah Zeinab

In this conversation, I’m talking to the wisest 23 year old I know, Abdullah Zeinab.

He’s a former 3DMJ athlete and a big YouTube personality, whose days consist of waking up at 2am, delivering food, and making endurance cycling documentaries.

Abdullah is a very dear friend of the entire 3DMJ crew, and he’s such a breathe of fresh air in a world filled with over planning, over thinking, and overly obsessing about how we’re perceived by other people.— Read More…

Andrea & Friends 005 – Eric Helms

Eric, along with yours truly, is one of the 5 natural bodybuilding and powerlifting coaches with 3D Muscle Journey. He has a BS in fitness and wellness, an MS in exercise science, a second masters in sports nutrition, and is a strength and conditioning PhD candidate at AUT in New Zealand.

Aside from all that fancy stuff, he is a dear personal friend and one of the most interesting people I have the opportunity of speaking with on a regular basis.

This episode is very special to me because it’s the first time he’s being interviewed about anything that is NOT fitness, bodybuilding, or research. I feel honored for the opportunity, and I hope you guys like it too 🙂— Read More…
