#096: Steve Maxwell | Wisdom from Experience
2 days ago
Steve Maxwell is a very experienced and internationally recognized fitness coach, physical educator and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor who was one of the first Americans to receive a black belt.
He's had multiple appearances on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast as well as the London Real podcast.
We were lucky to snag him into our studios during a week full of seminars he was conducting in Vancouver. And we are fortunate to be joined with a guest co-host, Dr. Carlos Nunez who is a part of the Vancouver Real Community and was able to facilitate Steve's visit to our city.
Steve is also a minimalist and lives a legit neo-nomadic lifestyle literally carrying all of his worldly possessions in a back-pack and laptop case as he travels ongoing around the world sharing his knowledge and wisdom.
He has a very balanced, longevity and performance-based approach to fitness, health and wellness and is very holistic with his approach as well. He's a fascinating person to have share his expertise.

Best conversations in Vancouver
Vancouver Real brings out some of the best conversations I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. If a city can have a nature vs culture balance, Vancouver is lopsided in favour of nature—but Vancouver Real does a fantastic job of trying to even out that balance. They bill themselves as being dedicated to “cultural evolution,” but in real life what this seems to mean is fascinating conversations with a broad range of interesting people. What I find so valuable is the variety: intellectual, demographic, worldview; their guests are always different and always a pleasure to listen to. And so are the Zaremba brothers, who run the podcast. It’s like being invited to the best dinner parties—where the guests are both interesting and true to themselves rather than being careful—on a weekly basis.

Powerful content, that encourages growth!
OK, so I may be biased as I am one of the hosts of this show, but even when I try to be objective about it, if you're into personal development, open-mindedness, creativity, entrepreneurship, spirituality and listening to interesting people, then this show could be for you!

Thought Provoking and Refreshing
Andy and Mike are thought provoking interviewers that dig deep into topics I do not see elsewhere. I love the episodes that get into the subconscious brain. Vancouver Real is refreshing.
