Today’s episode we have arguable one of the most influential voices in fitness on the podcast, Ebenezer Samuel! Eb is the Fitness Director for Men’s Health Magazine and someone in the industry who is constantly looking to upgrade his knowledge and find a better answer. Eb has an unconventional route to holding one of the most coveted jobs in fitness so it only makes sense to hear his story.
