The Origins of Total Gym With My Mentor Tom Campanaro

The Origins of Total Gym With My Mentor Tom CampanaroHappy Thursday everyone. I hope your week is going well!

You can’t imagine how many people reach out to me every day for advice on YouTube, Instagram and other places. Man, it’s a lot and it’s non-stop too!

Recently on my Living 4D podcast, I shared a conversation with Total Gym’s Tom Campanaro, a wonderful friend and a trusted mentor of mine for more than 30 years.

When I have a challenge coming my way and I need advice, Tom is one of the first people I seek out. That’s how much his wise counsel means to me.

Every meaningful journey has a starting point, so I want to share Tom’s “origin story” of sorts, starting as a bodybuilder — minus the steroids — then finding love and a partner in San Diego, and developing Total Gym from the ground up in this Living 4D excerpt.

You’ll also learn how hard it was to find a market among the bodybuilder set until the rehab market discovered the benefits of Total Gym and all about the world of infomercials.

Did you know I was a host of Tom’s Total Gym’s infomercials along with Christie Brinkley and Chuck Norris? If you enjoy this short excerpt, I hope you’ll spend some time listening to our entire conversation.

Love and chi,
