Everyone desires to be healthy and fit, but only few give the time, attention, and energy to doing so. And we aren’t just talking physical fitness. We are talking about holistic fitness which involves the body, mind, and spirit. We want to help individuals pursue and reach their goals physically, mentally/emotionally, relationally, and most important spiritually. Thankfully, our Built Different Guest today, Shane Manney, has a significant amount of experience in all aspects of life. Physically speaking, Shane has accumulated over 20 years of coaching experience that includes wrestling, boxing, submission grappling, and strength training along with serving 6 years as an infantry machine gunner in the United States MARINE Corps, 2 years as a police officer in Richmond, Virginia, and 8 years as a private security contractor and security lead supervisor for Exelon Nuclear Security. On the mental, emotional, and relational level, Shane worked in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation at Pennsylvania Counseling Services for years helping individuals find freedom and recovery from strongholds within their lives. And spiritually speaking, Shane earned a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Lancaster Bible College in 2016, and now leads a ministry called 5 Stones Fight Club that exists to engage individuals in mixed martial arts and fitness so that they can become both physically fit and spiritually sound. His mission is to help individuals relate their struggles on the wrestling mats and in the cage to their daily battles in life, and to provide the necessary support to become moral representatives of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. My favorite quote from the episode is, “Come as you are, but don’t stay as you are.” Don’t miss this powerful episode that will help you push past your comfort zones!
