The Whole Life Fitness Manifesto with Dai Manuel

By: Ben Brown

Are you living a life of purpose? It’s a difficult question to answer, and one that takes a significant amount of introspection. If your answer isn’t a resounding yes or if you’re interested in discovering the secrets to lifelong happiness and well-being, then definitely check out my podcast with Dai Manuel.


Dai is a certified lifestyle mentor, executive performance coach, motivational speaker, former COO of Fitness Town Inc., award-winning blogger and author of the Whole Life Fitness Manifesto. He is also the proud dad of two daughters and a devoted husband.


After personally struggling with childhood obesity, Dai has made it his life’s mission to live a healthier, more active lifestyle and help others do the same. Through his coaching programs, Dai blends mindfulness, personal development, and purposeful workouts to empower individuals to create a life of awesomeness.


You can create any life you want if you just take a second to reflect and really figure out what are your pillars. What are non-negotiables? What are things that will remain true? On the day you’re on your death bed you can look back and say ‘you know what? I stuck to my guns on these things. I made them a priority and I’ve got no regrets.’ If you can say that you’ve lived an integral life to you.


Dai is truly the epitome of health, fitness, passion, and purpose. During our uplifting interview, we really dive deep into empowerment and leading a FUN-ctionally fit life through education, encouragement and community. We also talk about his daily struggles of being a dad with young kids. I think this podcast will really resonate with everyone and I hope that it motivates you to make whatever changes are necessary to optimize your health and happiness.
