What We Talked About:

  • How Dominic got started in fitness - from being a 300lb rugby player who ate whatever he wanted, to losing a friend that was a similar age to a pulmonary embolism on the same day as he found out he was having a son and eventually being a PN client.
  • Dominic's approach to coaching and inspiring change through skill-building, and why Precision Nutrition is using the word "skill" rather than "habit".
  • The sociocultural factors we need to take into consideration when speaking about change with a client.
  • Why listening is an extremely important part of the Precision Nutrition Level 2 curriculum.
  • Dominic's perfect blend of psychology and philosophy to create healthier, happier humans.
