Doug Bopst is an award-winning personal trainer, author, speaker, and podcast host. Those credentials and accolades are a result of his own transformation. He is a former felon and drug addict, sentenced to months in jail due to being found guilty of “possession with intent to sell.” He chose to use his time locked in that small cell to beat his demons and reinvent himself thanks to a combination of faith, family, and fitness.


In this episode, Brad and Doug discuss what it means to want more for yourself when you lose track of what matters most. Listen in!
