Nutrition Gap, Accessibility to Healthy Eats & Supporting First Responders with Dan Graziano

Episode 41:

In this episode, I speak with Dan Graziano. Dan made the leap from a fitness professional to business owner after years of personal training/coaching. While working in the fitness industry, Dan met his MightyMeals co-founders at his local gym.

While working as a personal trainer, Dan began cooking basic, healthy meals for his fitness clients to keep them on track with their health and fitness goals. His clients purchased meals on a weekly basis and soon afterward Dan enlisted the help of his MightyMeals co-founders, Alex and Stefano.

Working towards the goal to make MightyMeals the best meal prep company in the country, Dan works hard to live a healthy, active lifestyle. He is proud that MightyMeals employs more than 20 people, helping the local economy while providing a fun, rewarding work environment.

– Life as a Fitness Trainer

How the Podcast can Help You

On The Rest & Recovery Podcast, you will learn from some of the foremost professionals and experts on the best ways to help you rest & recover. My hope is that you can bring your best self to life in your fitness pursuits, marriage, or as a parent to ensure your one life is lived well. The idea of the podcast came from a personal mission to help bring my best self to all things in my life.

My initial goal was to improve on my fitness pursuits as an endurance runner. However, as I began to examine the various components of my life, I realized some of the challenges started with some bad habits dating back to my 20’s. I would just keep going to work, college, and into late nights with friends with little sleep or consideration for the effects it was having on my body, mind, and spirit. It would always catch up with me and I would end up sick. This didn’t really stop over the years…the burn-out…it just occurred for different reasons.
Yes, I matured…a little… yet now I was married and a growing family with 3 little girls, a corporate job and still trying to pursue endurance sport’s goals. Up until a few years ago, I burned out in every way possible - physically and emotionally and mentally to the point I went into a season of ambiguity, indifference under performance devolving into depression. Since then, I have been on a journey to reclaim my life for myself and my family. This helped me learn about a variety of influencers that can help enable the proper level of rest and recovery to ensure I could show up with strength and stability.

My hope is my personal discovery story, along with the people from all walks of life discussing the various approaches, will lead you to the proper rest and recovery. So join me in the journey to learn how to live this one life to the fullest!
