(EP19) “O-beast” Latino Leader: César Amaral
Play • 42 min

When he was born, César was nicknamed “El Gordo” — the fatty. When he was 12, he realized how his weight began to hold him back— but it wasn’t until he hit rock bottom in his 30s that he knew he had to turn his health around. Now, he’s transforming the lives of his entire community through the thriving fitness startup, MX360 Fitness.

This lively conversation includes:

  • Cold immersion — how to set up your body burn calories for hours afterward! (Hint: it’s because of homeostasis)
  • How do you start your own fitness journey without getting overwhelmed, and what keeps people from falling off the wagon?
  • Why César went vegetarian — and why he doesn’t pressure others to make the same choice
  • How did César disentangle his body image from his identity?

...And, a surprise performance you'll have to wait 'til the end to hear!

The One Thing: Inform yourself about nutrition through research, so you can stand on your own nutrition principles.
