What does it take to look like Wonder Woman?
“Wonder Woman was incredible for a different reason. It was the first time in Hollywood that we were going to put a group of women on screen that had that physical prowess, together, in an amazing new kind of vision of femininity.”
In today’s Your Revolution Podcast, we meet Pieter Vodden: cast trainer for Wonder Woman and the Justice League, among many others. And now part-owner and founder of one of the coolest and most progressive gyms in the world - Pharos.
Originally from the UK, I met with Pieter as he was setting up his new facility - PHAROS - in Los Angeles. We talked all things fitness, business, movies, motivation and how he feels about the new feminist wave he’s found himself involved in.

There is a balance between self acceptance and the desire for change. In today’s podcast we explore the steps we can go through to love ourselves - both our present, and future versions. The steps we can take to keep growing, while nurturing and loving who we are right now.
“The only way I’ve gotten here, where I am, is by working really hard… I want everybody to have a chance for exercise to change their life, and to do that, there’s a lot of hard work to do.”

When it comes to success, Bobby Maximus stands for something. In this episode we explore how his parents taught him about hard work, the impact he plans to leave on the world and the amazing story behind how he got that elusive blue tick.
There’s more to Bobby Maximus than being a real life superhero. Meet the articulate, generous, successful businessman behind the meat.
