From Overweight to Fittest in the UK: Zack George

Zack George finished the 2020 Open as the Fittest Man in the UK and 26th worldwide, but hearing this accomplishment, you would never guess how far he’s come.

As a child, a steady diet of sweets and fast food led to him being extremely overweight and self conscious.  With the support of his family, he was slowly able to transform from a kid who hated exercise to one of the most athletic teens in his school.

In this episode, we chat about how making small changes can lead to dramatic results, why it’s important to surround yourself with the right community, and why it’s never too late to set big goals and chase them down.
