The Big Signs You’re In Toxic Relationships & How To Set Boundaries w/ Nedra Tawwab Glover EP 1400

New book from NYT bestselling author Lewis Howes is now available!


Want to build a life and business around doing what you love? Me too. Let’s connect.

Do you ever wonder who the top health experts take advice from?

Or who their personal trainers are?

Or what their workouts look like?

I love meeting and learning from these experts behind the experts.

So I really loved the chance I got to interview one of them (Dr. Oz’s personal trainer) on this episode of The School of Greatness.

Donovan Green is not only a top fitness expert, who creates content for Dr. Oz’s show as well as training him, but he is a successful entrepreneur and has a big vision for helping people of all ages and backgrounds truly change their relationship with health and fitness.

He is an amazing example of a self-made man who was born in Jamaica, raised in the Bronx, and decided at an early age to improve his mind and body rather than getting involved in the trouble that many of his peers found.

Above all, Donovan’s energy is awesome. He is one of the most positive, inspiring, and solid guys I’ve met, especially in the health space, and I absolutely love his fitness philosophy of No Excuses.

If you’ve been struggling to find the motivation to get on top of your fitness, Episode 195 with Donovan Green is your time to change that.

  • What’s your favorite fat-busting exercise?

In This Episode, You Will Learn:
