330: Chris and Eric Martinez: How to Avoid Burnout

 

How many times do you feel like your brain is fried? Maybe your body is exhausted? In either case you feel like progress is just a struggle, and that’s the problem of burnout.

Burnout is a serious symptom we all deal with in life, and a lot of that stems from just doing too much and going too far.

The mind and body both need breaks. If you want to build muscle, you can’t if you keep destroying it with high intensity workouts. It needs time to rebuild.

If you keep working, researching, and trying to grow your business your brain will begin to fizzle and you’ll never get the chance to really absorb what you’ve been learning.

As a result, take the time to relax. Take breaks, mentally and physically, so you can go back into the game and really get everything in your life moving where you want it to go.

On this episode of The James Swanwick Show I talk to two fitness entrepreneurs, who are also identical twins, Eric and Chris Martinez. These two guys lost their father as teenagers, and it turned their life upside down. They were getting into trouble and acting out, and knew their life was going down the wrong road.

As a result they ended up moving to Los Angeles and starting over. They built an incredibly successful business and got incredibly fit at the same time.

They’ve joined us to give some amazing tips on how you can progress your mind, body, and business all at the same time without feeling like you have to sacrifice one for the other.
