Andrew Weiss 1:47
Richard excited to be here. Whoo.
Richard Conner 1:49
I’m excited to have you here as well. You’re an entrepreneur, you’re into health and fitness, you’re doing great things to help your clients and help others reach their goals. I love everything that you’re doing. And I’m really excited to share your story with our community, because I think you can help them not only on the health and fitness side, which we’re talking about running here on the podcast, but also on the business and entrepreneurial side. So really excited to have you and you know, just learn a little bit more about you.
Andrew Weiss 2:14
Yeah, no, I’m definitely an open book. And so hopefully, I can provide a few golden nuggets for people and who knows, maybe get someone to think things differently, so they can achieve it thereafter. Love it.
Richard Conner 2:25
Love it. All right. So let’s get into the conversation. And you know, just tell us a little bit about yourself and the work that you’re doing. Yeah, so
Andrew Weiss 2:32
as mentioned, my name is Andrew Weiss, originally from Oregon, and I recently got married in New York City, pretty girl committed we move across the country. And so living over here, and as far as running my accountability groups, I’ve discovered that because humans would rather not lose something than gain something, why not flip that psychology on its head and gamify goal setting to make it easier for yourself. So the way that I run my groups is I have people put a certain investment into a common pot that people share. And from that common pot, you have the incentive to get some of that money back if you consistently make progress on your goals for a period of time. And a classic examples. That is I wanted to help one person be able to lose weight. And so when I was sitting down with him, we discovered he goes, Okay, Andrew, I eat too much candy. And I bet if I were to run at least one mile every day for three months straight, then I’ll be successful. I’m like, great. So every day we checked his accountability, he we tracked his investment. And sure enough, over 90 days by just cutting out candy from his diet from running one mile every single day, for 90 days straight, he was able to reach his fitness goals. So that’s what I love helping people do is setting the goals reaching them and making it happen.
Richard Conner 3:46
I love that I love that I love the work that you’re doing here. And you know, that’s a big part of anything that we do, right? It’s one we talked about mindset, movement and motivation. And it’s really first having that right mindset to get started to believing that you could do it and setting those goals. But it’s another thing to actually do it and continue to do it consistently over time. And you know, that’s why we addressed those three pillars on the podcast, and I love you know, the the systems that you put in place to help others do that.
Andrew Weiss 4:12
Yeah, no, I’m definitely I’m very passionate about it. And I love what you talk about when it comes to that mindset, that movement motivation, you definitely need all three because actions also caused thoughts. And I can assure you that if you’re running, you’re a happier person, even they even talk about that and Legally Blonde that happy people don’t kill people. So miles will do things that make you happy.
Richard Conner 4:33
For sure, for sure. And, and I know, you know, taking running is an example. It’s not always a happy time for people. It’s hard. It’s a hard thing to do. But you know, as you get into it, and as you get better at something, whether it’s running or anything else, you do start to enjoy it and it does start to make you happy. So so that’s really interesting. So, you know, let’s talk a little bit about kind of your health and fitness journey and then we’ll come back to you know, the entrepreneurial work that you’re doing. So, you know, tell us a little bit about that I know you don’t necessarily consider yourself a runner. But tell us a little bit about your running journey and some of the things you’ve done.
Andrew Weiss 5:07
Yeah, so let’s see. I mean, I don’t know how far back in my journey you want to go. But let’s see, I grew up in a house of all guys, parents divorced when I was eight years old. And so I have two younger brothers and a father who is very physically active. And so he would always be doing activities, even on vacations. And my new wife, she said, Geez, I, this the first time I’ve actually lost weight on a vacation, because of how active our family is. I mean, when I was in fifth grade, I remember I was doing three sports at once, and I get it, some people do that K through 12. But it was a big deal for me to do that in fifth grade. Not at once, but within a year, I should say. But also growing up, you know, because my father is super skinny, I decide, You know what, I don’t want to be super skinny. So I want to stay in good health and good shape so that I can get strong and be able to do that. And I also didn’t hit puberty to allow is 16 years old. So most of my life, I was five feet tall five to walking around and wondering, why can’t I compete physically with very many people right now. And so yeah, I got into weightlifting a little bit when I was in high school. In college, I maintained my physical stamina. And I just kind of say, You know what my goal of mine is to dunk a basketball and to live to 100 years old. And I know if I want to live to 100 years old, I’m not going to do it by sitting on the couch all day and eating Pringles and potato chips, it’s okay to do that once in a while. And it’s also love the great quote by a trainer friend of mine, he goes, everything in moderation, even moderation in moderation. So because I have like, I guess those two whys of living to 100 years old and dunking a basketball, I know that I always have to be in good shape, I have to always be stronger after I hold myself to want to be healthy. And because I also believe in the concept of look good, feel good. And, you know, I love looking at myself with the shirt off in the mirror. I know it’s egotistical, and it might sound cocky. But the answer is, I understand that it’s unfortunate that obesity is at the worst rate it’s ever been in the history of the world. And so I want to show people, it’s okay to still be healthy, take care of yourself, feel good for it, and be confident yourself with the body that you work for. So as far as Yeah, my running journey, I love following this guy named Ari Mizel. And he wrote a book, I think it’s called more living less doing, and that he talks about that it’s unfortunate, it’s a misconception that you have to work out every single day of the week for two hours every day to get in good shape. Like yes, obviously, different people have different standards of what they’re trying to accomplish. But as far as living a healthy lifestyle, and still being the top percentage of Healthy People, no, I only work out three to four days a week. And I don’t work out more than one hour a time really, because I have an hour lifting session, I play basketball hour a couple times a week. And when I wasn’t doing that, I would do high intensity interval training four times a week where I’d work out for 20 or 30 minutes at a time. And that’s still kept me in great shape. So yes, I’ve done marathon, a marathon a half marathon 10k 5k. I’ve done Spartan Races, I love doing them all. And I definitely train for them for my sign up. And I’ve been on a ramble. So the last thing I’ll say is another great way to stay in shape is constantly sign up for running events. Because I can assure you, it’s when you sign up for running events, you don’t want to show up unprepared. And that forces you going back to the accountability piece to start training immediately once you sign up and be ready for it.
Richard Conner 8:31
Thank you, Andrew, for sharing your story and your journey. I really love your story. And I love the fact that you’re active as a kid. And you grew up kind of with that mindset. And you know a little bit about what you said about not wanting to be the skinny kid I can certainly relate to because I had a very similar experience. In high school. Being I wouldn’t say tall, I was a little bit taller, big feet, but you know, very, very skinny. And, you know, one of the things that I wanted to do, I guess later in life, maybe didn’t hit me back then, but maybe a little bit later in life was not to be that person that like you had mentioned. So in addition to getting back into running, I’m like, I want to be able to do things that I never thought I could do before because I wasn’t like this really strong person. So that’s what kind of got me into obstacle course races because I was able to overcome my fears. In terms of heights, I mean, a lot of things scare me, but heights in particular, but also do the things that I just never thought I could do like climbing a rope or monkey bars or things like that. So I appreciate you, you know, kind of being authentic and sharing your story in that way. And I love what you said about not having to work out seven days a week because I think if you’re not working out at all, and you see others who do it, you’re probably feeling like they do it all the time. Right. It’s a big jump from not doing it at all too, to even working out three to four days a week. So, you know, what we talked about here is really just kind of having that plan, whatever that plan is, if it’s if it’s running or was playing basketball, just sitting Say that time having it on the calendar and and incorporating that into your daily habits.
Andrew Weiss 10:05
No, I love that I agree that the importance of having a plan and and I agree it you know, it goes back to what you mentioned that how much you love doing obstacle courses and I love doing basketball and I want to reiterate that again, like find the exercise that you think is fun that you enjoy doing. And whether it’s like frisbee volleyball, swimming, bicycling, like, just do what’s fun and stick to it. And obviously, yeah, make sure it aligns with the goals you’re setting for yourself or just or just staying active. However you can be in a way, exercise can be fun, and then you get to feel better afterwards and making sure that you can be successful with that,
Richard Conner 10:40
for sure, for sure. So let’s talk a little bit more specifically about your running journey. And then, you know, talk after that talk, how do you pivoted more to basketball? So tell us a little bit about well, why running in particular, and a little bit about the races that you’ve done?
Andrew Weiss 10:56
Yeah, so let’s see, when I was in college, that’s when I definitely did the most running because I did a marathon It was the summer before Oh, it was the summer of my senior year, I was just graduating and my roommate had signed up for the marathon. And he did it the year before. And so you know, I mean, I’m a competitive guy, I love a good challenge. And he’s like, alright, well, I got this this time. Let’s see what time you can get. And so my okay, if you can do it. So can I and my training was actually the sprint training. I read somewhere online, you know, I know you and I joked Richard, that we’re both lazy people. So I read somewhere online, like, oh, to train for a marathon, you have to run three miles, then five miles, then 10 miles and 20 miles, then you can finally run a marathon. I’m like, I don’t want to spend several hours a day running, I just want to be ready for this. And so I’ll maybe call it a hack as far life hack as far as I discovered a sprint training program, where he said, If you can just sprint for two to three miles three or four times a week or something that you’ll be prepared for the marathon. And I’m like, Okay, done, I’m definitely more than happy to sprint and save time rather than just running and running and running, essentially. And so that’s how I train for the marathon as I was doing sprint workouts, and it was it was fun to do timing myself. And by the time it came time for the marathon. You know, I had just watched the Hi Mitch your mother episode, where he talks about you know, runnings, really easy. Step one, start running. Step two, just keep going. And, and yeah, so I really felt like I was ready for that marathon by doing the sprint workouts until I think, mile 23 or 24, hit me. And I also made the mistake of having chicken potpie the night before, and that probably wasn’t the best food option to eat. You know, for those who are listening in and considering running a marathon or sign up for marathon to do soon, what really helped me actually was stretching in the middle of the race, because that wall is very real, if you’re not, quote unquote, properly trained as far as like your legs do not want to go anymore. And but when I stopped and just stretched out my legs, and did that, that really gave me a huge extra boost of energy to keep going and finish strong. And also help to that I of course, prevented the chafing issues. And I also had TED talks going and books to read while I was running, which helped as well, are books to listen to, I should say. So yeah, that’s my marathon journey. But before that, I of course, did the half marathon and same thing stayed in shape with just sprint workouts, and then just doing 10, Ks and five K’s you know, once you do a marathon, every race is quote, unquote, easier after that, and then just really staying in shape through my hit interval training and playing basketball and doing all that. So hopefully that answers the question.
Richard Conner 13:38
Yeah, for sure. I love to hear runners stories about like, how they got started, what their experiences were, like, what they learned through the process. So you learned a lot about yourself, in terms of how you want to train and how you want to spend your time. And I think that’s important for our listeners to hear different perspectives, right. So, you know, some perspectives might be, you’re gonna have a formal 16 to 20 week marathon training program, and this is how it’s gonna go. Right. So or others in your case might have, you know, a much different training program. So I think that’s helpful. You know, for someone who’s never done a marathon before some of these longer distances, and might seem daunting, like for myself, I’ve only done the half marathon distance. So for me a marathon is a big leap. I’m thinking, Can I do this? Can I do it successfully? Well, I feel like I’m dying the entire time. These are the thoughts that are going through my head that I’m sure others are thinking about. So, you know, it’s helpful that you share some of the things that you did to kind of help you physically and mentally get through that race.
Andrew Weiss 14:35
Yes. So another thing that really helps, too, so I did that Eugene marathon. And for those who don’t know, Oregon is one of the running capitals of the world and Eugene is where Nike got started. Maybe you’ve heard of that company. There’s a great African proverb that says that you go fast when you go alone, but if you want to go far, you’ll travel with others. And that’s so true, because during the marathon, you have so many people cheering you on. And it’s just so fun to just run with all these people and people are cheering you on with signs giving you granola bars and drinks and water and snacks and all this stuff. So really, that the atmosphere of these, they’re running marathon events is so helpful for your, your spirit and your vibes and your endurance and all the above. So what what I tell people is like, when it comes to running a marathon, you know, obviously, some people do it competitively, you know, you got to compete and reach a certain time, some people want to do it like me, just to say that they’ve done it, essentially. And another people you got to understand is that, once you get to the marathon line, and you realize there’s people who are, quote unquote, older and more frail than you, you’re going, Oh, geez, okay, if they could do it that so can I, if they’re not scared of this, then why should I be and there are people who literally walk the entire marathon, and they, you know, they finish in eight or nine hours, but they’re okay with it, because they still did a marathon that day. So I would say at the bare minimum, understand that there is a very high chance there are people who are older than you weaker than you, and who have trained less than you who are running the marathon that day, if they’re planning on completing it, so should you and just understand that there really is a fun event, get all the encouragement from people and running along others, and being able to mark it off your bucket list to say you were able to accomplish something like that.
Richard Conner 16:20
Yeah, for sure. And that’s, that’s kind of where I’m headed. Because I don’t see myself as the fastest or in the leads runner, I’m a runner. So I want to I’m training to get to that starting line. And, you know, hopefully, my training gets me to the finish line and the time that I want, but I totally agree with you, you know, anybody can do this, right? If you’re willing to put in the work and the training, anyone can do this, regardless of you know, where you come from, or what your abilities are. So, so yeah, that’s really great. And, you know, some of the things you just said, I think there are a lot of parallels between the fitness role as well as the business world, right, you’re talking about having people around you, motivating you, and maybe, maybe indirectly, maybe just their presence is motivating you, but also having those people around you supporting you. And I think there’s a lot of parallels between you know, that the fitness world and also the business world. So, you know, let’s, we’ll talk about that a little bit. But I’d love to hear kind of your perspective on some of the work that you’re doing. From an entrepreneurial standpoint, and maybe some crossovers with with what you’re doing from a fitness standpoint. But before we get there, one of the questions I love to ask my guests is, what would you say was your biggest obstacle in your health and fitness journey? And how did you overcome it?
Andrew Weiss 17:34
You know, as the as of today, April 12 2023, hopefully, I can say the date on this podcast, it’ll still be relevant. But my goal is still dunk a basketball, I haven’t done it yet. I can currently grab rim and I’ve been able to dunk a volleyball at one point. And so the answer is I’m still working on that, quote, unquote, obstacle. But I’m excited to get there and I can’t wait for that day, I finally make it and I’m only 511 and three quarters for those wondering six feet with shoes on. But as far as other obstacles that I have overcome and have achieved, yeah, I definitely would say that the marathon is definitely a big one. The Spartan Race was was fine. But that was very difficult to but it was a good time, I’d say, you know, setting new records and my benchpress as well. And so yeah, when it comes to overcoming obstacles, the answer is, get some friends, you can do it with set a date and time when you’re going to do the event. And then just put your workout training in place. And then just like with the Hi Mitch, your mother guy says, the Bernie in the show, it’s like step one, start running. Step two, just keep going. You don’t have to overcomplicate it. But yeah, there’s been that the biggest obstacles I would say that I’m working on and I’ve overcome and making it happen.
Richard Conner 18:50
Awesome. So you know, let’s move into I’ve said this a couple times, let’s move into kind of your entrepreneurial journey. And one of the areas that I’m interested in is how do you balance everything? How do you do the work that you’re doing to help others through your coaching business and the other work that you’re doing? And find time for fitness? Because I’m thinking, you know, someone’s in their nine to five, or someone’s an entrepreneur even more. So if you’re an entrepreneur? It’s a little less like a nine to five, I assume, right? So how do you find that balance even with kind of the work that you’re doing?
Andrew Weiss 19:19
So what’s unfortunate is how much our culture believes in being busy and being overwhelmed. And, oh, I don’t have time for this. I don’t have time for this. The beauty of life is we create time we make time we get to decide what we do. I mean, you can have a super important meeting with the top investor who can invest million dollars in the company. But if God forbid, if like the roof collapses and a spike goes through your arm, you’re going to be going to the hospital and before that you didn’t know that you had time for the hospital, but now you do. So the answer is you the importance of creating time for fitness for health and How much how important that is to translate to other areas of your life to because high performers that they’re staying active physically and which helps them stay active mentally, there’s some awesome photos of Jeff Bezos on the internet, you know, one of the richest men in the world at one point and how strong he is how ripped he is, because he goes to the gym all the time. And that’s not a lucky thing that happened, he made time for it. And, and you could say he’s the busiest person in the world managing what hundreds of 1000s of employees, if Jeff Bezos can make time to go to the gym, then so can you and I know there’s countless stories of people who are running full time businesses while working a nine to five while being in a happy, healthy relationship. And it might mean they might have to make time in the morning or lunch breaks or the or the evening, but the answer is, make time for it. Understand it, you don’t have to spend hours and hours per week on your fitness, it can just be, you know, two to four hours a week max, if that kind of depending on how you go about it. As I mentioned, like I was staying in shape, I would just be doing 20 minute workouts three to four times a week. And I felt great. I felt like I can still hold up with everyone. And of course, moderate your diet to nutrition know some basic nutrition diet facts. But that’s the main message I want to say is don’t worry about, Oh, where am I going to find time to put focus on health and fitness? Make time it makes make it a priority? And it’ll happen?
Richard Conner 21:18
Yeah, for sure. And, you know, a couple of things that you said I think resonates really well. So number one is, it doesn’t take a lot of time to to do your workouts to go for the run or do your high intensity training. And and maybe that might be a barrier for somebody who thinks I don’t have hours a day to spend on this. So So number one, knowing that it doesn’t take a lot of time number two, is also scheduling it. Not everybody likes to do that. But I know I live by my calendar, I’m sure you do as well. So scheduling it, at least puts it on the calendar. And when that time comes, you’ve blocked it out. So you don’t schedule something, you know, on top of it. Now, what if your schedule is just very fluid? What if you know day by day, you don’t really know what’s going to happen that day? Like how do you kind of manage through that or things come up? Like how do you kind of manage through that as well?
Andrew Weiss 22:09
Yeah, I’d say I totally agree what you said just the importance of putting it on the calendar to consistently work out at a certain time on a certain day, like my trainer I work with, we work out 330, either every Wednesday or every Thursday. And then when I’m not with my trainer, I have it in my schedule to work out 330 On Mondays and Thursdays, it’s not playing a basketball game. So the answer is yeah, put on your calendar. And as far as the fluidity goes, you know, I like I read a book a while ago thing called superhuman habits. And one things he talks about is like, if you miss a habit for one day, you know, there’s a like 70% chance of you being able to regroup that habit. If you miss a habit two days in a row, there’s like only a 10% chance of you being able to regroup that habit. So it goes back to the moderation comment, like it’s okay, if you miss a day or two or three about working out, get back on track and get get back on the horse and make it happen. So that’s definitely say is like, like you said, scheduling your calendar, get put it make it a priority, get back on track if you miss a day and give yourself some grace and get back on it.
Richard Conner 23:18
Love it. Love it. So. So let’s say I’ve done that. So I made the decision that I’m going to start working on I’m going to start running, and I’m going to put it on the calendar. I know how to kind of adjust now if things come up. What if I’m just not feeling motivated to do and it’s on the calendar? And I’m like, Yeah, but I got a lot of work to do. And I’m just not really feeling it today. Like what would someone do to kind of keep them accountable and keep them motivated? I think this ties in a little bit with the work that you’re doing in your coaching business.
Andrew Weiss 23:49
Oh, 100% does. So I’ll just dive into why that my countability programs are so successful is that human nature is that that’s what’s so funny about working out too is like before we work out or like I don’t want to do it. Once we start we’re like, oh my gosh, this sucks. And usually it’s not until about 15 ish minutes and you’re like, Okay, I feel pretty good. And then of course, when you’re done with your workout, you’re like, Oh, I feel great. How do I even question myself for wanting to do it in the first place. And in another analogy, I love a fan of X Men and Wolverine. And for those who don’t know the reference, a Wolverine is a superhero and he has claws that are invincible come out of his hands that he beats bad guys up with. And one of the questions that gets asked in one of the movies is they asked him you know, does it hurt whenever these claws come out of your hands because it literally has to puncture through his skin for him to be able to use these claws. And he goes every time. You know it hurts every time for those claws to come out. But can you imagine if he was too lazy or too comfortable to go? I don’t want my hands to be punctured today. That sounds pretty painful. I don’t want to use my super power gifts. He would not be able to accomplish the great things he does. So kind of summarizing all this is like, yes, it’s going to be, quote, unquote, a little painful to get started your workouts and to stay consistent, it’s going to, quote unquote, suck the first few minutes of it. But then once you get going, and then once you’re done with that you’re like, This feels amazing. So understand that everyone thinks that way. And that’s totally okay. Or the accountability comes in, is a classic example is that you can have excuses or you can have results. And that’s a great quote by Jim Rohn, because of how true it is. And if you have accountability going, it’s not even an option for you to say no to doing your workout that day, it’s not even a question of you even thinking about it being a possibility of skipping it, because you have the accountability in place, you’re going to do that workout, whether you want to or not. And then of course, once you do the workout, you’re like, I’m so glad I did this. So the way I run the accountability is, as I mentioned, is that you know, people put investment into common pot, and you can only earn that investment back. Once you do consistent progress towards your goal for a certain period of time, everyone is tracking each other. So whenever you’re not feeling motivated, you know, and you see another person working out, you’re like, Okay, I want to make sure I’m working out too, so I can get my investment back and everyone’s successful. So I would say, if you really still struggle so strongly with that lack of motivation, with the lack of making progress, join the accountability program. And understand these are common thoughts that people have all the time. And it’s okay to overcome these thoughts, using accountability, using motivation and being in a supportive group of people who want to see you succeed.
Richard Conner 26:26
Thank you so much, Andrew, for sharing that that’s really interesting approach. And I’ve read something similar, not too long ago. And I know there’s different approaches to accountability. And you know, someone’s just struggling if they tried different things, I know, there’s different ways to go about it. But this is a really interesting approach that could help them. So So definitely, one, I’ll definitely want to point them in your direction to kind of learn more about this approach, whether it’s in, you know, business, or health and fitness, because it sounds like you’re helping your clients through both. So you know, really great work that you’re doing there. And you know, what kind of kind of as we wind down here, what kind of advice would you give our listeners in a really to, to kind of start down that path, whether it’s reaching their health and fitness goals, or something in business that they’re looking to achieve.

So I’d say goes back to the analogy of the best way to eat an elephant, one bite at a time, the best way to write a book, one page a day. And of course, if you want to write a book faster, you could do 10 pages a day or five pages a day, but just really breaking large items into smaller steps. And when it comes to health and fitness, do that thing where you sign up for an event, sign up for a league, get some buddies together and host a tournament or something, just get get something going. And for your business goals, yeah, goes back to begin with the end in mind, know what your business goals are, why you want to accomplish them what you’re gonna do with all that extra money, and then start working backwards as far as what’s that first step to get there? And whether you join our accountability program like mine, or someone else’s or find another business coach, like me or someone else? The answer is get started. And I’ll go back to the Barney quote from how much your mother is start. Step one, start going step two, keep going. That’s essentially what it takes.
