“I can only perform well and do things well if I’m taking care of myself – you can’t pour from an empty cup.” – Sal Di Stefano

Sal Di Stefano (@mindpumpsal) is a lifelong health and fitness experimenter/enthusiast and fitness media entrepreneur as well as co-host of the disruptive and informative Mind Pump podcast.  Mind Pump is an online radio show/podcast that has been described as Howard Stern meets fitness.

During our call, Sal gets into:

  • Aligning your health goals with the rest of your life.
  • How he thinks about self-care through life’s challenges.
  • His “trading dimes for quarters” philosophy.
  • Avoiding the trap of “fighting for 1%” in your health and wellness

If you enjoyed this conversation, I would strongly encourage you to check out episodes of Sal’s podcast.  They currently have well over 600 episodes available and have interviewed everybody who is making a difference in the field of modern fitness and wellness.  You can also check out Sal on Instagram @mindpumpsal.
