About the Podcast

Sippin On Excellence is an interesting take on the human experience as seen through the eyes of Life Coach Kenneth Johnson and Dr. Leonel Hunt, affectionately known as Coach KJ and Doc. These two dudes and special guests use humor along with broad strokes of deep thought and clever insight to enlighten and inspire listeners to seek and, hopefully, achieve that very attainable state of EXCELLENCE in all walks of life. As we take you on this journey, sit back and Relax. It’s gonna be one hell of a ride. Now raise your glass with us and let’s make a toast to living the good life.

Dr Leonel Hunt is a nurturing caring but most of all an amazing surgeon. I have had two very serious operations one in which he helped save my life from a brain tumor and another spinal surgery to remove a spinal cord tumor which left me in the best of shape to go back to my regular lifestyle and running again.

KJ worked side-by-side with me to uncover the thoughts and tendencies that have hindered me; discover more of the person I want to become, and actively aspire to be her.

Dr. Hunt is a very compassionate, kind, trustworthy and professional person. I would recommend him to anyone who is experiencing back pain. My surgery was a huge success thanks to him. I couldn't be more pleased and thankful.

Kenny aka Coach KJ has been my trainer for almost 2 years. I have nothing but positive things to say about him. His work outs are challenging and always leave your muscles confused. He really takes the time to listen to what your fitness goals are and makes a realistic plan for you to achieve them.
