Trading Booze for a Barbell with Mike Hishon

Episode Summary

It seems easier to internalize feelings than to get vulnerable and deal with them. The need to drown out hard emotions is what led Mike Hishon to pick up the bottle at fourteen and keep picking it up until it almost ruined his marriage. After using alcohol to cope with crippling anxiety for years, Mike found himself at a crossroads one Christmas morning. He chose the path to salvage his family and his health, and he put down the glass to start picking up weights. He joins Vince in this episode to talk about how he was able to drop 75 pounds in just a few months, how fitness saved more than his physique, and how his unique training program is bettering the lives of men around the country. Don’t miss this raw look into how this action taker stopped making excuses in order to rescue the relationships that mean the most. “In all relationships… It’s about taking accountability. It’s about manning up. It’s about looking at what you’ve done, not what the other person is doing.” - Mike Hishon Slide Into The DM On Instagram To Talk   Want Some M5 Apparel Sent to Your Door?
