Stephen Campolo – How I Built A 6 Figure Fitness Empire On Instagram

UPDATE: During a recent interview with Yahoo! News, Stephen revealed that he will be speaking at the next Disrupt Puerto Rico conference in October. For more information and for tickets goto: https://www.disruptweek.com/

During a recent interview with Thrive Global, Stephen Campolo reveals how he has went from dead broke to building a 6 figure fitness empire and how he went from fat kid in high school to becoming a celebrity health coach and online exercise influencer. Stephen has worked with some of the top celebrities and entrepreneur in the world today and he shares his insights on fitness and health.

What’s your backstory?

I am a former fat kid turned fat loss and muscle building expert. I struggled with my weight for most of my childhood and early adult life. It wasn’t until high school that I got tired of feeling sick and tired with how I looked. So I decided to do something about it. Taking the first step of action towards bettering my health and image would start a sequence of events over the next few years that would ultimately change the direction of my life.

I became obsessed with seeing my body change week over week and I wanted to learn everything I could about the human anatomy and nutrition and weight training. My first job was working at Gold’s Gym where I was the cleaning boy, wiping down machines and cleaning bathrooms…but I didn’t care because I loved being in that atmosphere and talking to all of the personal trainers and bodybuilders, trying to soak up as much information as I could.

After graduating from college and getting my Bachelors degree I went to work in the corporate world. It was a typical 9-5 sitting in a cubicle. I did it for 2 years and was miserable every day. I knew that life wasn’t for me, but I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. During this time my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer so I knew I didn’t want to be away from her all day. My good friend was the head personal trainer at a prominent country club where I lived and asked me to come work with him. The hours were good and the pay wasn’t bad so I did it. During this time I was training some of the most powerful CEO’s in the country and some celebrities.

About a year after being diagnosed I watched my mom take her last breath. This was a turning point in my life. She was only 52 years old. I realized how fragile life was. And I knew I didn’t want to spend my life training people. I felt like I had a lot of knowledge to share about fat loss and fitness so I started sharing my thoughts and beliefs on social media. Little by little I started gaining traction and started to build a following. At first I just wanted to do it for fun because I truly loved helping people, but I started getting tons of messages asking if I had a program to buy or if I did any coaching. This led me to create my first fat loss program.

Momentum grew and shortly after launching my program I was able to leave my personal training job and do my online fitness business full time. In a very short amount of time I have helped thousands of people all of the world reach their fitness goals and my client transformations are some of the most impressive around.

Currently I am getting ready to do something no other fitness influencer has done before. I am doing a 12-week transformation challenge in which the winner will win a brand new car. I know the hardest part about getting started is lack of motivation so if people know they can possibly win a car, then that motivation will get them to the finish line.

What made you decide to choose this career path?

Having taken control of my health and life I knew I could share my own knowledge and beliefs with others that would greatly impact their life. For me it isn’t a career, it’s a calling.

Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?

Looking back over the past few years I laugh because I truly had no idea what I was doing. I had no structured plan or idea. It was just simply me being me and sharing knowledge that I though could help others get healthier and fitter. I think sometimes being naïve and isolated can be beneficial in a sense because you are almost too dumb to believe you can’t do something, I just simply believed I was meant to help others and no one could tell me different. When you are firm in your beliefs, nothing and no one can get you off your path.

What do you think makes your company/personal brand stand out?

My story. I am not a genetically gifted fitness model who was born with abs and big muscles. I’ve had to work hard and overcome my own flaws and setbacks to get where I am. Sharing my personal story and vulnerabilities with my audience has allowed me to connect on a very deep and intimate level with people. People appreciate that, especially in a world full of fakes and pretenders.

What’s a quote that you live by?

What gets measured gets managed.”  This goes for your nutrition, workouts, business, relationships, spirituality. You have to know where you are in order to make adjustments to better improve things in your life.

What Are The Ways To Reduce The Effects Of Skin Cancer?

Published

on

Skin cancer is a leading disease among Australians and New Zealanders. According to a popular health site, 2 out of 3 Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer when they turn 70. Now, isn’t that a scary figure to wrap your head around!

Australia is struggling with skin cancer. There is no cure, but there is prevention! So how can we fight skin cancer? What are the various methods to reduce the effects of skin cancer? This article takes a bird’s eye view on this matter. Please see that there are various ways to treat different stages of skin cancer. The treatment methodology of skin cancer and actinic keratosis (precancerous skin lesions) will vary according to the nature of these lesions (size, color, height, etc.)

Also, note that the treatment of some small skin cancers won’t go beyond the initial biopsy. If you suspect you may be developing or already affected by this disease, we will suggest you visit a dermatologist or a cancer surgeon. You may consider booking an appointment by visiting this website.

1. Cryosurgery:
In some cases, your doctor may freeze some of your skin lesion cells (cancer cells) by liquid nitrogen. This retards the growth of cancerous cells. After thawing, these cells slough off.

2. Immunotherapy:
This treatment option manipulates your immune system to stop the spread of skin cancer. Immunotherapy is a relatively new technique in battling skin cancer. This method has arisen after cancer surgeons identified various ways in treating melanoma. Sometimes, immunotherapy involves using vaccines that contain the herpes virus.

This vaccine kills cancerous cells is quite useful. Immunotherapy also uses drugs like interferon, interleukin-2, ipilimumab, etc. These drugs stimulate the body’s immune system and attack the cancer cells. Using immunotherapy, doctors aim to weaken the melanoma cells and also immunize the patient against his cancer.

3. Chemotherapy and Radiation:
In extreme cases, where the basal and squamous cells have spread to other parts of the body, doctors use chemotherapy and radiation-based treatment to control the disease. However, doctors remove the cancerous cells by surgery before chemotherapy and radiation therapies.

Chemotherapy involves the use of drugs to remove skin cancer. However, these drugs that you take may destroy other healthy cells too. Your healthy cells of the stomach, intestine, and hair might also be attacked and destroyed.

Chemo works in three different ways:

  1. Sometimes, it destroys all the cancerous cells so your doctor won’t be able to detect them.
  2. On other occasions, it controls the spread of these cells to the different parts of the body.
  3. Chemo can also alleviate your pain, so your quality of life becomes better.


4. Radiation Therapy:
This treatment uses sending a burst of radiation to the affected skin part. Usually, this operation doesn’t take more than 20-25 minutes, and you don’t have to be admitted into a hospital.

5. Micrographic Surgery:
During this surgical operation, various layers of the affected skin are peeled and examined under the microscope. Cancer cells are discussed, and this process repeated until no more cancer skills can be seen. This procedure is done where skin cancer has occurred in the genital areas, face, hands, palms, etc.

6. Electro-Desiccation:
This process is also called elector-surgery. Here, a small spoon-shaped blade is used to cut the area affected by skin cancer. Later, a needle is inserted into the wound to treat it. This way, doctors try to control the spread of basal and squamous cancer cells.

Now that we know the various treatments available, let’s also avoid skin cancer.

  1. Wear protective clothing.
  2. Apply sunscreen
  3. Avoid working for too long in the sun.

They help in identifying and treating the Gradual Decrease in Coordination

As chiropractors are trained to identify and treat subluxations, they can help to restore decreased coordination by stimulating joint receptors in the neck. It means by visiting a chiropractor daily one can reduce spinal degeneration and other arthritic problems by normalizing the spinal alignment.

A spine can wear out prematurely down over time, so it is essential to get your spine aligned periodically. The spine is responsible for providing the brain with essential information necessary for balance and coordination and the smell receptors at the base of the cervical spine help your mind to sense how and where your limbs and hands are functioning.

But as you enter old age, the functioning of the system deteriorates, making it more difficult to understand how your body is moving.

Chiropractic care treatment stimulates the receptors and increases the effectiveness of balance and coordination.

  • Because chiropractors prescribe proper stretching exercises to keep them flexible and also conduct programs to increase their overall balance and coordination.
  • When the spine gets appropriately aligned, the circulation helps to clean out toxins from every part of the body, increasing strength and better mobility in the body.
