Be the man you've always wanted to be
Being Men is an exploration of what it means to be a man in 2019 and beyond. We are here to question traditional masculine values and facilitate the growth of calm, vulnerable and strong men.
The founders of Being Men, Mitch Barber and Rohit Bangalolelu met as boys and have been shaped into men by friendship, love and martial arts. Their aim is to connect with and guide men and boys to a higher understanding of their selves to reach their potential as good men.
Through the podcast, blog, personal coaching and events. Being Men hopes to foster the development of healthy masculinity, however it may manifest.
