About Us

In Man’s Search for Meaning, Viktor Frankl wrote that "Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” Our age is obsessed with the easy way. They're afraid of hardship and failure. They insure themselves against it...ignore it...run from it. But not you. You aren’t afraid to undergo hardship and risk of failure to earn a better way of living. You’re strong and ready to become stronger… you take on hard things with dignity and pride because in the end, the most rewarding life isn’t the easy life…it’s the hard life.

Zach Even-Esh

EIf persistence is indeed the primary key to success, Zach Even-Esh is highly successful. Actually, he IS successful, and it’s because of decades of a passionate and persistent drive as an athlete, coach, and content creator. Zach was one of the first online producers who influenced me and my journey into weight loss, fitness, and strength and conditioning. To do this day, I look to Zach to recalibrate when I’m overwhelmed by new and novel information. Zach is a seasoned and highly sought-after coach of young athletes, military, and elite athletes when it comes to no-BS strength and conditioning. He has written several best-selling books, produced more YouTube videos than you can watch in a month, owns and runs several gyms under the Underground Strength brand, and runs the Underground Strength Coach certification. In this episode, we discuss consistency, what separates the good from the great when it comes to expertise, and training in general. I also nerd out a bit just because I had the opportunity to finally speak with someone so influential to my own story. You don’t want to miss this one!

10MT – Accountability

Dan John 2 of 2

EDan John is the man. Not only is he A MAN, he represents manhood very well. Not only that, his life represents The Hard Life as a human endeavor very well too. A strength coach, a fitness expert, a write, a sage on all things about living a good life, Dan has more wisdom than you can fathom in one sitting. He’s a renaissance man for sure, but even more so, he’s genuine, a trait our race often struggles to exhibit. Though not the originator of it, Dan John is the propagator of the motto “Little, often, and over the long haul.”, a quote you often hear me say. I credit Dan for much of the impetus behind my mindset to date around the concepts of living The Hard Life. This episode is the second part of the interview and was originally recorded for a podcast I previously published called the Shred Shed Podcast. Despite being a few years old, age isn’t a limiting factor for the wealth of information it yields. Listen up and learn.

10MT - Intentional community matters

EBeing part of a community is crucial to your success. You need a community to root into and to be accountable to. Similarly, your community needs you to contribute what you have to offer. The Hard Life requires this. It requires accountability TO others and confrontation WITH others.

Jim Talbot - Choose your hard

Losing weight can be hard. It can be especially hard at an older age and when doctors are trying to sell you bariatric surgery as a solution. Not only do you have severe health concerns looming and even threatening death, but what was once a matter of exercise and diet is now an uphill battle against hormones and an aging body. In this episode, meet my friend Jim Talbot. He’s a regular human like you and me but is in the middle of a decision he made, or I should say, is making that is hard: to lose weight the old fashioned way. Hard work and healthy eating are this man’s alternative to doctors’ recommendations for surgery and since starting his journey, Jim has lost a large amount of weight, beaten diabetes, and is more healthy than decades ago. Jim’s motto is #chooseyourhard. Listen to find out why it should be yours too. Follow Jim on Instagram: @jim_talbot_ii Instagram: @hershberger_fitness
