Bodybuilding versus Body Balance with Rob MacIntyre

Athletes are so hang-up about their physique nowadays. Everyone, not only professional athletes are hitting the gym to build their bodies. Protein diets, muscle building, hardcore training, and spending hours in the gym has become a trend. And with the extreme desire to look acceptable to the audience, even drugs like steroids have joined the hype. Today Laurin, Celeste, Ryan, and Grant will be joined by Rob MacIntyre, owner of Hard Nocks South Gym to let everyone know why hardcore training and unprescribed drugs could do more damage than good to your body and mental health. They’ll also tackle different stress hardcore training may bring you, not to mention the recovery periods your body will need when exposed to injuries. Tune in and learn from the experts on how you can achieve great balance between building your physique and looking great from the inside out.


“You need to have balance. Everyone has bad days so if your body is telling you something, have balance and rest.”
