Chase is physique competitor and trainer based out of Little Rock, Arkansas. He coaches people online similar to what I do through his site Today you’re going to hear us talk about both our training histories, the experiences that made him the coach he is today, how he overcame being skinny, and we discuss what really makes him tick – why he loves his job.

This is my first time interviewing someone. I was a little nervous and the mic at my end was a little quiet – I’ll be sure to fix that next time.

    Hi Andy,

    Nice idea to start a podcast series, still maybe you can shorten these with more focused questions.
    It’s an enjoyable discussion between you and Chris, still you could have cut some sections, I think.

    1. Andy Morgan says:

      Appreciate the feedback Florin.

  2. […] you have some time give it a listen over on his site, located here >>> HERE […]

    Can you please have greg from and Lyle Mcdonald on your podcast? Thank you.

    1. Andy Morgan says:

      Hi Chris.
      Lyle – I could probably swing that if I catch him at the right time in his schedule. We could chat about how his work has been received in Japan for example.
      Greg – yes we could do that, we have a similar sense of humour it seems from our Facebook interactions. I’m not that familiar with his work though. The plan is to get the people on that I’m a fan of on first, and then look into other people that I think would be good to introduce the audience to. That’ll be a lot of reading but it’s necessary to keep the quality high. This isn’t a slight on Greg though, I simply don’t have enough time in the day to read everyone’s stuff. 🙂
