Oliver Anwar on Losing Body Fat and Building Muscle in Only 4 Hours Per Week While Enjoying Life

Welcome to episode 90 of Optimal Health For Busy Entrepreneurs.

We have author and founder of The Worker Coach, Oliver Anwar stopping by for a fascinating discussion on how busy entrepreneurs, professionals, and executives can transform their bodies in only four hours per week. 60-hour workweeks, deadlines, emails that aren’t slowing down, and people clamoring for your attention are part of many high performers’ lives.

Besides these things, you still have your social life plus relationships to maintain. This is why fitness can sometimes, and unintentionally, find itself relegated to the end of the bench. Oliver has helped 100s of busy professionals seamlessly mesh fitness with their lifestyle and is here to discuss principles from his book: Busy Professionals Fitness Handbook.
