Choosing to be Proactive: From Losing the Ability to Walk, to Striving Towards the Future

I am on today with Lee Chambers, Founder of Wellbeing Consultancy, Workshop Facilitator, and overall life guru himself.

\\We are talking about the dichotomy of the mental and physical aspects of life.

Lee has qualifications in Performance Nutrition, Strength and Conditioning Coaching, and Advanced Sleep Consultancy, and he delivers multi-discplinary workshops focused on improving performance and productivity through increasing employee wellbeing. This is an issue very close to his heart, as after losing the ability to walk in 2014 due to chronic illness, he has battled back to achieve a positive health outcome, and is now on the pathway to become medication free. He is currently studying an MSc in Environmental Psychology, with a focus on human interaction with workplaces and natural environments. He also presents the Health and Wellbeing show on Ribble FM Radio, and speaks in Educational establishments about his varied career path.

Based in Preston in the North of the UK, Lee is currently working with business owners and employee teams to create culture change, wellbeing strategies and champions. He is a father of 2, coaches a disability football team, and enjoys the odd slice of cake. He is currently writing his first book, “How To Conquer Anything”, which will be released in 2020.

The Fireside MicroPolyCast episodes are like those cherished fireside chats, where I share insightful bursts of ideas, rants, explanations, news about PolyInnovator and short, thought-provoking discussions. It's the perfect quick dive into the world of polymathy.


On the PolyCast, I believe that the pursuit of knowledge knows no bounds. Each episode is a unique exploration of interdisciplinary thinking, innovation, and the polymathic spirit. Join me and unleash your own polymathic potential.
