World record holder; iTunes chart-topping podcaster; creator of the world’s first online gym; fitness model; former soldier; body transformation coach; husband; father… and now author of the Amazon bestseller Mindset With Muscle, Jamie Alderton is a man with more than a few strings to his bow.

- Why setting goals can be counterproductive
- When things are tough, how to tell when it’s time to go ‘all in’, or to recognise that you’re on the wrong track
- What does it mean to be a man in 2017, and what should it mean?
