Welcome to the fourth episode of The Sandbox. My experimental project to develop interviewing skills and discover the nuances of creating a podcast.
Today’s guest is Shane Jenne. In this episode, Shane and I discuss his early struggles with weight and how that was bound to lead him to a life filled with chronic health issues. Instead of fulfilling this prophecy though, Shane transformed his life losing 80lbs the summer after his freshman year of college. He didn’t stop there though. His transformation inspired him to help those wanting to start their own health revolution. Shane became a certified personal trainer and strength and conditioning coach and recently started an online personal training program for the entertainment industry that includes actors, dancers, and performers.
You’ll hear tips on fitness, nutrition, and sleep in this episode. I hope you enjoy it!

[36:55] I won’t give them a bucket of fish. I will give them a fishing pole and show them where to go but they have to show up and maintain their fishing pole.
