[EPISODE] Facing Tough Times

Facing tough times with Michael Alfieri of The BIGS Show. Resilience, fortitude, courage, physical & mental strength.

All things we need as humans and more so now than in memorable history.

This week Michael Alfieri will share his experiences from the Air Force, as a fireman, a fitness model and most recently as a personal trainer whose business came to a grinding halt upon national stay at home orders.

His training taught him that it’s not about getting knocked down, it’s how you get back up. His inspirational personality & positive energy are next level (as well as his podcast, The BIGS Show)!
