Today’s guest is Chase Chewning. Chase is an Army Veteran, he’s a health coach and the host of the wildly popular podcast, Ever Forward Radio. Before going from health coach to podcaster, Chase served in the military and after six years of active duty, he was medically discharged due a string of injuries that ultimately required him to have bilateral reconstructive hip surgeries. After learning how to walk again, exercise as medicine, making healthy lifestyle modifications and helping others do the same became his passion. In today’s conversation, we dive deep into Chase’s story and chat about how the loss of his father during his time in the Army led to a path of self-sabotage, causing emotional pain and physical injuries that ultimately forced him to retire from the military. We also discuss how he transformed his mental health and dealt with his suppressed, deep-rooted trauma. Chase also opens up about his struggles with male friendships and the recent discovery of his true self. A major theme of today’s convo revolves around how he’s turned his gratitude for his past experiences into a career of helping others transform their bodies and minds, inspiring them to live a life ever forward.
