The Low Carb Hustle

Dec 21, 2022

Do we need to change our focus as we get older on our training and diet? In this episode, Bryan Krahn, who has years of experience working with clients of all levels of fitness, shares some tips on how to stay motivated and achieve success even as you age. He believes that if someone wants to achieve great results, they must take into account their entire lifestyle and make appropriate adjustments. Bryan digs into steroids, Instagram influencers, and how online coaching can be an effective way for people over 40 to reach their goals. Let's dive in!

Bryan Krahn has been a trainer since 1997, holds a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist designation through the NSCA, and has two university degrees in two decidedly non-fitness-related areas. He's also a “semi-serious physique athlete,” meaning that he enjoys building a lean, muscular, aesthetic body but stops short of actual competitive bodybuilding.
