About Us

The Strength of Body and Mind podcast is an informative and educational podcast dedicated to helping people create the mindset that they need in order to achieve all of their fitness, strength and health goals. It is the belief of the host, Gordon Light, that anyone and everyone is capable of getting the body of their dreams, the level of health they've always wanted, or the strength achievements that they've desired for years. It is also Gordon's belief that the obstacle that is stopping everyone is their mindset, but not in the way they are likely thinking about it. This podcast will dive deep into specific things on both the physical, nutrition and training content, but also content around the mindset and mental framework needed to execute on the former. Take a listen, and prepare to have your mind opened up in a way that will help you get the most of your life by first prioritizing health and fitness, starting with perspective and mental strength.

EP128: What Does It Mean to Have Permanent Results?

The overwhelming majority of fitness companies, trainers & coaches talk about getting "real results FAST" and how they can get someone "shredded in 12 weeks"...but how much of that is permanent?What will happen to that person after 18 weeks, or 24 weeks? Will they still have their results? Or will they have to buckle down and repeat that same diet plan and workout plan to get those results again?That is not a healthy way to live, nor is it sustainable.And it certainly isn't permanent.In this session, join PERMAFIT co-founders Gordon & Scott as we break down what exactly sustainable nutrition is, and why 99% of people who struggle with weight today will struggle for the rest of their life if they don't take the time to learn this now and adopt it into their lifestyle.Pass this along to that one friend in your life that NEEDS to hear the words.Rate, review and subscribe in iTunes if you got value out of this episode.Join our FREE Facebook Group - The Art of Weight Loss: facebook.com/groups/artofweightlossCheck out our free training video showing you how we achieve massive (and permanent) weight loss and fitness results without excessive dieting and unnecessarily brutal workouts - https://permafitforlife.com/videoConnect with Gordon-Facebook:@gordon.a.lightInstagram:@gordon.lightCheck out my free video on how you can learn to eat with ZERO restrictions, workout the way YOU want, and get the body of your dreams and the health you've always wanted: See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

He has spent the last few years going against the grain to build his company and brand with all the cards stacked against him.Everything that we discuss in this episode is 100% relevant to fitness and health objectives, as well as those who are struggling to do ANYTHING big or impactful.

EP123: The 4 Phases of Transformation

The 4 Phases of a Fitness Transformation EXPLAINED.Going through a weight loss, health, or fitness transformation is challenging. No one has actually gone through it will tell you it's easy.

EP121: My 2-Step 1-Ton Weightloss Strategy

I like to keep things simple as often as possible.When it comes to weight loss and fitness, it's really easy to over-complicate things very quickly. What I've found is the less people know what to do, the more they over-complicate it. This is normal because it's a byproduct of not knowing exactly what to do.An expert is an expert for a reason: they simply know what to do, when to change gears, how exactly to change them, etc.I've been able to simplify my process over the last 10 years to a simple 2-step formula of:1) Energy Expenditure Restructuring2) Body RecompositionThere's a lot of details underneath each of these, but this is the high level overview. In this episode I dive into each of these things, what they mean, and how we go about achieving them in the Mind Body Academy.Give this one a listen and make sure to let me know if it resonated with you.Pass this along to that one friend in your life that NEEDS to hear the words.Rate, review and subscribe in iTunes if you got value...

EP120: Spending vs. Investing In Your Health

I've found over the years that most people will easily spend money on their health & fitness; however, they won't actually invest in it. They'll quickly spend money on products or cheap services that are low cost, with no real tangible value associated with it...but they won't invest in the areas that actually help them move forward and lose the weight, get into amazing shape and transform their lives.This behavior has often confused but I know now why people do it, and I break it down in this episode.
