 “When you see your body change and your progress is made, you get excited to see it.” —Laila Lanteigne

“Ask yourself why you're doing it. And if you're not doing it for the right reasons, it's not for you.” —Jordan Long 

Whether you're a seasoned bodybuilder or a fresh-faced newbie, the principles, mindsets, and values that fuel success remain the same. Consistent effort, unwavering discipline, and the will to push through any obstacle are the hallmarks of a true bodybuilder. The path may be long and arduous, but the rewards are worth every drop of sweat and every ounce of pain.

This week’s episode features coaches, bodybuilding competitors, and life partners, Jordan Long and Laila Lanteigne. Jordan has been competing in bodybuilding for 17 years since he was 15 years old, making him the youngest competitor at his first show. He placed third at his most recent competition. Lila recently started her competing journey, winning her first show overall at the wellness division after only 12 weeks of dedicated prep. 

Listen in as they discuss the challenges of prepping together while raising their family and maintaining busy careers. Jordan and Laila also share about their recent competition experiences at the TNT show, lessons they’ve learned over the years about overtraining, undereating, and using performance-enhancing drugs at a young age, mental challenges of competing, the importance of having the right motivations and coach, and advice for both experienced and new athletes.
