Ted Ryce was put on this planet to show us how to live a legendary life by helping people master their health & fitness, mindset, productivity and communication skills.

He is a motivational speaker, fitness expert, wellness coach and host of the Legendary Life podcast. Having been a fitness professional for over 17 years in the Miami Beach area, Ted has worked with celebrities like Richard Branson, Rick Martin, as well as many CEOs of multimillion dollar companies.

Tragedy & Triumph

Ted is the host of the Legendary life podcast, a top ranked health show on itunes, and with his intention to help others in a recent "Be The Change" project successfully funded on Kickstarter, his gratitude for life and people have reached new levels in 2016.

However, his life wasn’t always like this.

The truth is that he believes himself to be an ordinary guy who was born with no special skills or talents.

In fact, He's been through some extraordinary events. Tragedies that he thought he’d never be able to overcome.

The Extraordinary Circumstances Ted Has Lived Through   

  • In 1991, when he was 14 years old his mother died in a car accident.
  • In 1995, when he was 19 years old and starting to recovery from his mom’s death, his 9-year-old brother was kidnapped, raped and murdered.
  • In 2009, his step-mother died from a heart attack, from a broken heart.
  • In 2012, his 35-year-old sister committed suicide. The truth is she never recovered from Ted's brother’s loss.

Everything we’ll talk about on today's show is 100% in alignment with taking an honest, and sometimes humbling, look at our health and wellness goals, and the how and why we show up in our relationships to others.

I mean, is there really anything else more important in this life than how we serve other people?

You Will Learn

  • How to live a legendary life by setting and achieving your health and personal goals
  • How to take the time to learn the skills needed
  • Avoid the shame spiral and asking questions of “what’s wrong with me” by recognizing you just need the proper skills
  • Taking 1% daily imperfect action
  • Overcome obstacles by creating your why 
  • How to get clear on your why
  • Find what makes you come alive
  • Putting yourself outside your comfort zone

Do you intuitively know that in order for your health to rise to the next level you first must break your bad habits? Today's guest, Nir Eyal, helps companies create behaviors that benefit their users, while educating people on how to build healthy habits in this busy modern world.

Nir Eyal is a best-selling author, speaker, and behavior change jedi-master that is educating people on how to build healthy habits in their own lives.

He writes for TechCrunch, Forbes, Psychology Today, and is a frequent speaker at industry conferences and Fortune 500 companies.

As the author of Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products Nir has taught at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Design School on practical insights to create user habits that stick.

Are You Addicted To Technology?

How do successful companies create products people can’t put down?

Why do some products capture widespread attention while others flop? What makes us engage with certain products out of sheer habit?

Is there a pattern underlying how technologies hook us?

Nir Eyal answers these questions (and many more) by explaining the Hook Model—a four-step process embedded into the products of many successful companies to subtly encourage customer behavior.

Through consecutive “hook cycles,” these products reach their ultimate goal of bringing users back again and again without depending on costly advertising or aggressive messaging.

Why We Do What We Do

With technology growing exponentially, it is no surprise that the waterfall of apps, wearables, and the internet of things have become a double-edged sword in our world.

On one hand, technology has given rise to advances in human connection, expression, and productivity, while on the other, without mindfulness and intention, it can harm the most important thing we have: our health and wellness.

To balance the demands of this attention-grabbing technology while still maintaining our vitality and well-being, Nir's new book profoundly uncovers the how, why, and what makes this addictive technology, well, addictive.  

Behavior Change

Nir's blog is about the intersection of psychology, technology, and business. He calls it “behavioral design.” The topics at Nir's blog encompass user experience, behavioral economics, and a dash of neuroscience.

Since 2003, Nir has sold two technology companies and now help teams design more engaging products. For most of his career he has worked in the video gaming and advertising industries where he learned, applied (and at times rejected) the techniques used to motivate and manipulate users. 

His life's work in behavioral design has flourished from his writing, speaking, and consulting by helping companies create behaviors that benefit their users, while educating people on how to build healthy habits (and breaking bad habits) in this busy modern world.

This Qigong practice helps people ground themselves into their “now” to increase their present moment awareness of their behaviors, and find solutions to problematic habits such as: eating, moving, negative thinking, and sleeping.

  • Tell your truth without judgment or blame
  • Be open to alternate outcomes that may be even better

The Hero's Journey

John's story is powerful beyond words. From his site, we find an incredible hero's journey through thresholds of being celibate for 9 years while traveling with the Maharishi Mahesh, sleeping on a beach homeless with two college degrees, to becoming the most sought after relationship expert in the world and writing the best selling book of all time. More from John's story page below:

"In 1978, John’s brother asked him for help from a mental hospital. His brother had suffered from bipolar disorder and he was struggling to find happiness. John had encouraged meditation for him in the past but it did not help. So John left the Transcendental Meditation movement and Maharishi and returned to the United States to try to help his brother get out of depression.

John ended up in Los Angeles, California hoping to find the cure for his brother’s bipolar disorder. Los Angeles had become a hot bed of new therapies like Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Neuro-linguistic programming, Hypnosis, Scientology, Primal Scream, EST, insight Seminars, Rebirthing and Loving Relationship Trainings. But first he had to find a place to sleep.

John was homeless and living primarily on a beach in Santa Monica. He spent his days at part time jobs and reading psychology books in the public library. “I had 2 degrees but not much work experience on my resume. I was good at meditating for hours, teaching yoga and living simply with peace of mind,“ remembers John, "But those things couldn't pay all the bills back then." Every couple days, John saved enough money for a hotel room where he could take a shower and sleep in a bed. But most nights were spent on the beach.

John recalls one night sitting by a fire on the beach with a dozen other homeless men, trying to teach them about God and their true purpose in life. “They said to me, ‘John, we love listening to you, but we have no idea what you’re talking about.’ I knew I was in the wrong place and need to move on. This was definitely not my audience,” recalls John......"

Angela Martindale is a lifestyle transformation expert, fitness and nutrition professional, and motivational speaker.

Rate & Review Wellness Force

Having worked for many years as a celebrity fitness trainer and personal nutritionist to some of Hollywood’s most elite A-list actors and actresses, Olympic athletes, and renowned business moguls, Martindale now shares her unique nutrition, fitness and lifestyle expertise with individuals both locally and nationwide. 

Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Wellness

In 2006, Angela launched Transform - a lifestyle-coaching company geared toward cultivating physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. She also spearheaded Meals That Transform, a conscious food delivery service of all-natural, organic, healthy meals.

 

A native Utahn, Martindale has been voted Salt Lake City’s #1 Trainer and Best Wellness Coach and serves over 70,000 fresh, organic, GMO, and gluten-free, custom meals per year, to clients through her nutrition services company, Meals That Transform.   A past contributor to Livestrong.com, ExpertVillage.com and Healthy Utah Magazine, Martindale is a current Lifestyle and Wellness contributor to digital magazine SharpHeels.com and EverydayPowerBlog.com for professionals, and maintains regular appearances as an invited guest expert on all local TV network affiliate stations, offering insightful and educational nutrition and wellness tips for individuals, families, companies and community groups on creating positive lifestyle transformations. 

Additionally, Angela has been featured on the cover of magazines such as OM Times, The Global Information Network and The International Women's Leadership Association, with spotlights in magazines such as Ballet West’s Front Row and featured articles in publications such as; TheIndieChicks.com, Care2.com, The Active Times, Healthy Utah and The Good Men Project, among many others.  Angela was named as UT’s spotlight for the Happenings Media 2015 “50 Women that Rock the Nation” feature, and was recently made a member of the prestigious Ballet West Academy Board of Directors.   

Angela is also an inspirational speaker addressing topics such as; The Role of Nutrition in Healing Physical and Emotional Trauma, Lifestyle and Stress Management, Women’s Empowerment, The Power of Personal Choice in Success, Wellness and Healthy Living.

Martindale holds current certifications from the American Council on Exercise (ACE) as a Personal Trainer and Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant, a certification from the National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM) and is certified through YogaFit as a yoga instructor and national trainer. 

 

Positive Affirmations

Born with a possible life-threatening port wine stain birthmark, Angela was bullied throughout her childhood. Fortunately, Angela was raised by loving and encouraging parents, so that at home, she never felt any different than others. With this love and encouragement as a backdrop, she grew to learn how to have empathy for others by becoming kinder to herself

Angela says, “You can be your own best friend or your worst enemy. Remind yourself constantly of how amazing you are."

She suggests putting up “I AM” signs everywhere, so you're reminded to be the best version of yourself every day.

Listen As Angela Uncovers

  • How moms can understand what their kids need, and that you don’t have to be a nutritionist to lead them into health and wellness.
  • The need to ask the right questions and understanding exactly what is happening to your body
  • Looking within and knowing that wellness is a process; you can’t achieve optimum health in one day
  • Being specific about what you want to happen with your life, in terms of health and wellness
  • Helping moms de-stress and reconnect with their authentic self

Don't Get Fancy

Angela suggests working on meeting basic nutrition and hydration. You don’t need to be a nutritionist or a chef to deliver the best care for the ones you love. All is you need to do is understand what your body needs and how it reacts to the things you feed it.

Think of long-term goals because truth be told, wellness is a process. As Angela puts it, you can’t expect to lose weight all of a sudden if you eat a single apple today. It takes time and effort and patience - and of course, consistency.

Wellness Is Happiness

Being grateful is the key to unlocking a life of wellness. Angela states you'll know you’ve achieved wellness when there is a vibrant energy that flows through you. You don’t have to be the richest, the fanciest, or the best - you just have to be at peace and at home with who you are and what you have.

Moms have the most difficult time dealing with this; especially because of societal pressure - and Angela wants to remind all mothers out there that you are not alone and that you have support.
