Powerlifting World Champion and Olympic Weightlifting coach, Travis Mash, joins us today to talk about some of the learnings he's had since episode #3. He’s been coaching athletes for over 21 years from all walks of life. He’s worked with NFL players, Olympic Weightlifters, Powerlifters, and athletes across many other disciplines. Travis is known for shifting paradigms and doing big things to grow the sport of Weightlifting that we love so much. We talk about youth/teen development, what conversations with athletes might look like outside of programming, bar speed, overtraining, business, and so much more.
Exactly one year ago, I had contemplated starting the podcast. I tried kicking the thought out of my head for a while because I didn’t think I was ready.
Within two weeks, I dove in and recorded my first 3 episodes. Scared to death. No one listened for quite a while.
To think about what it’s become purely from you all listening and being badass fans — I’m honored.
I also have an exciting announcement to make. All I wanted in my heart when I first started personal training at 18 years old was to make a living out of fitness delivery. I wanted to be a fitness professional. Not a hobbyist. Not a side hustle. A professional. I saw very few people who were able to that.
I’m honored to say that I’m now a Revival Strength Coach. Marcus has given me a platform where I can do exactly that. And I have a deep urge to share that feeling and share information with those who are on this path.
Words can’t wrap the emotion I feel around this topic. Because you are doing meaningful, commendable, and admirable work to truly impact people’s lives. And you deserve to be able to make a living from this type of work. Long story short, if you’re a fitness professional (or one in the making), you’ll want to listen to this episode.
Thanks for giving me a platform where I can keep creating a body of work. Talking about things that matter, ideas that work, and dialogue that delivers. This episode is a thank you and a direct dialogue to those of you who support my art by listening to the show.
This week I wanted to share my thoughts around an author whose work I’ve admired for quite some time. I’ve followed his work closely and taken a few attempts at trying to embody his thought process in certain areas.
Looking back, I’m realizing that some of these concepts have stuck with me and have taken over a year to really sink in. Not only is his work worth sharing but the thought process behind why is equally as important.
There’s a lens you can try on at the beginning where I talk about a perspective on how to view your bookshelf. I also leave you with a few nuggets from him that have given me light bulb moments.
The most important one revolves around the concept of infinity being safe. Thinking about the smallest possible footprint you can make is scary. Infinity gives us a place to hide.
