For this episode of The College Checklist Podcast, I had the pleasure of interviewing my friend, fitness expert Steve de la Torre. Steve’s been a personal trainer in Orange County for years, but – due to a change in routine – he recently started working out in the mornings. When he told me the effect that this change up had in his level of focus throughout the day, I just knew I had to have him on the show.
Steve has a really great philosophy of balance that anyone can easily incorporate into his or her life. In this episode, Steve shares his advice about how high school students can boost their energy, focus, and academic performance with just a few simple, effective health tips, tips they can carry with them into college. We cover a lot of ground and will touch on the importance of exercise, nutrition, and sleep for today’s busy, college bound students.
