Jay Nixon is a speaker, author, mentor and coach whose mission is to help each and every person achieve their “absolute best self.” He is the owner of the Thrive Fitness Studio in Palm Desert, California and the grateful leader of the Thrive Tribe – a collection of Jay’s current and former clients who work together to improve their health, their fitness, and their lives.

For over two decades, Jay has helped thousands of people achieve total body transformation through a cohesive combination of fitness, nutrition, and personal development coaching.

I’ve been blessed to spend a lot of time with Jay, including in close connection with business and personal growth coaching as well as have him be part of my Circle Of Success, a topic we discuss during this episode.

If you are thankful and grateful, it is impossible for you to be negative.
