Ep.#70: Fit pro Ted Ryce shares the story of his brother's murder, supporting the death penalty, misplaced compassion, capturing child predators, & finding the courage to move forward via fitness & more - 041414
Ted Ryce (http://rycefitness.com) is an accomplished martial artist, a personal trainer, and host of the Alpha Fit Life podcast. Using exercise and nutrition principles he’s learned from extensive study, Ted transformed from a skinny 150lb fast food eating party guy to an athletic 205lbs muscular physique.
Via his 14 years of experience, as well as his holistic approach to health & fitness, the Miami-based strength coach has trained celebrities like Ricky Martin and Robert Downey Jr to CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, professional and amateur athletes, and men and women who want to look better in their bathing suits.
However, it is not just Ted's physical strength that is his only attribute. One could argue that it is his internal and mental strength he channeled to deal with the brutal murder of his little brother, Jimmy Ryce, and the courage Ted and his family endured to help bring his brother's killer to justice, as well as honor his brother by establishing The Jimmy Ryce Center for Victims of Predatory Abduction. (http://www.jimmyryce.org)
The Florida-based non-profit was established to help provide bloodhounds to police departments around the country, in order to help other families avoid the loss the Ryce family experienced, as well as put sexual predators on notice.
In February of this year, Ted's brother's killer was finally put to death via lethal injection. During this episode, Ted joins us to discuss:

Ep.#69: Anthony Roberts, a controversial supplement industry watchdog returns to discuss MLM/Network Marketing companies's connection to Crossfit , et al. & if these connections are hurting or helping fitness pro's brand reputation - 041014
Anthony Roberts, a highly controversial supplement industry watchdog, (http://romanoroberts.com.mx) returns to the LLA podcast to discuss the growing presence of network marketing companies infiltrating highly visible organizations such as Crossfit, via their top athletes, to push their products. Companies such as Visalus (Body By Vi), Beach Body, Herbalife, Advocare, & Isagenix, just to name a few, are becoming ever-present in many gyms, and with popular athletes of various sports, including "the sport of fitness."
The real question is, are these MLM companies or their products actually helping or hurting organizations such as Crossfit, or does getting into bed with these companies only hurt the reputations of Crossfit, its coaches and athletes, as well as other fitness professionals?
Are their products as effective as their evangelist claim, or is all of it just a bunch over the top marketing to sell over-priced products that give sub-par results, at best?
Better yet, is the real focus on the product or are fitness professionals utilizing "bait-and-switch/drug dealer tactics" to get their clients and colleagues to buy these products, not with the intention of hoping they deliver on the promise of helping them get healthier, but more along the lines of trying to convince the client or colleague to buy into the company and sell the product, as well, in order to create a huge sales-force to push false promises, for the sake of money, drive cars they never truly own, & trade their clients, colleagues, friends, & family's trust for the sake of a "great business opportunity?"
Anthony drops in to share what he's discovered about the health & fitness-oriented network marketing business's claims regarding their products, as well as his thoughts on popular athletes such as Crossfit Games men's champion, Rich Froning's, recent connection with Advocare.
On episode #69, Anthony discusses the following with Mike & Sincere:
