Ep. 270 - The War On Obesity, Technology & The Future Of Fitness w/ Dr. Rusha Modi

This episode was originally recorded for the Alchemy of Politics podcast, hosted by Dr. Rusha Modi, who also happens to be a long-standing RNT member based out in California. I enjoyed the conversation so much we decided to share it across both platforms. In this turning of the tables, Rusha took a whole different approach to this interview, where we talked about the government’s response to Covid-19, the war on obesity that we’re losing, the future of the fitness space, plant-based eating, and who our real competitors are. A fascinating conversation I’m excited for you to dive into! 


00:00 - Intro
01:24 - How fitness and nutrition were not emphasized enough by medical and governing bodies.
08:12 - How people workout
12:51 - What is the future of training? 
21:50 - Quoting Helaine Knapp "Our new relationship to fitness might reflect the fact that we've gained a generalized sense of mortality. We are all realizing that we're going to be moving every day for the rest of our lives. So we better be careful with our one body and not pound the pavement with high intensity workout seven times per week." Do you see that in your experience? 
25:42 - How do you scale a solution to solve the issues of metabolic obesity and nutrition-related health issues
37:05 - Why do a Vegan photoshoot? 
40:40 - How much of social perceptions of what it means to look performing, be vegan, including the myths around that played a role in this transformation for you
44:06 - 20, 30 years from now, 40, 50 years from now, what does the world of nutrition training and fitness look like?
