Chronically Human Ep. 6 Keith Egan

Thanks for checking out the Chronically Human Podcast – where we have conversations aimed at creating a world with more individual freedom and less unnecessary suffering.

Today, all the way from Ireland, is my good friend, Keith Egan. Keith is a personal trainer who has not let his battle with Type I Diabetes stop him from pursuing his dreams, which included coming to the states to go to university and playing collegiate sports. He’s now dedicated to helping others, with or without Diabetes, reach their fitness goals. Soon he’ll be launching Type I Fitness aimed at doing just that. And we’ll have him on again soon to talk about this promising endeavor.

Keith does touch on ways he’s learned to manage his Type I Diabetes while at the same time be extremely active and fit. At one point Keith was playing soccer and at the same time a standout member of the university’s golf team.

He’s recently gotten into running 10k’s and he’s planning on doing marathons in the future. He gives great advice to those who want to get into running and don’t know where to start.

His advice that he gives his personal training clients is great for everyone who wants to improve their own life. He advises that first you have to have a goal, then take stock of where you are currently, next, take consistent actions toward your goal, record your results, and celebrate your improvements you’ve made over time, and above all it’s important to be grateful for all you have, including the struggles that come your way.

He recounts how he currently fills his motivation tank by listening to the audio version of David Goggin’s latest book as well as from reading the work of Wim Hoff.

We talk about taking on suffering voluntarily to achieve one’s goals and about how it’s important to be “comfortable with being uncomfortable”. He also mentions how beneficial the Wim Hof method of breathing and cold exposure has been for him in helping him to keep going even when his body wants to quit.

Keith is one of the most positive guys I know and he has a great take on how to be happier and at the same time have more success, no matter what your goals are.

I’ve know Keith for years and really appreciate his friendship. I learned plenty while talking with him today. I hope you enjoy our conversation. I’m sure you’ll be able to take away a lot from listening to Keith talk about his journey as well as his outlook on life.
