I've always wanted to learn more about how to improve my rowing from someone who has a solid background in this discipline. As for nutrition, it's always valuable to chat with someone who has actually TRIED a wide variety of approaches. That gives us some insight on how to steer our own journeys with food in a slightly more efficient manner. Read More

#68 – Building Your Aerobic Capacity w/ Shanna Guzman

Shanna Guzman is a coach here at Revival Strength. She's someone I've had the chance to learn a lot from over the last several months. Especially when it comes to anything endurance related. Shanna comes from a swimming background, where she won a world championship in the 200m Backstroke in 2006 and multiple national titles from 2006-2012. She's currently being coached by Mike Lee of OPEX and is focused on developing herself to compete in the 40+ division of the CrossFit Games this year. The most fascinating part for me is talking about the honesty it takes to live the lifestyle of a competitor while also pursuing a coaching career. Read More

#64 – How Coaches Can Develop Systems For Handling A Robust Client Load w/ Mike Lee

Mike Lee, of OPEX Fitness, joins us today to talk about how coaches starting out can refine their systems to be able to handle a larger client load with individual design. "In order to grow as a coach, you have to learn how to scale. Scaling is done through a great system of organization and  great communication with clients." You may have heard of Mike's wizardry since he is the coach of Marcus Filly, Tennil Reed, and a host of other elite level athletes. This episode is valuable because we discuss the obstacles and adversity he faced when he started out as a coach. What were some lessons and challenges from 0-20 clients vs 40+? Regardless of where you are on the coaching continuum, this is one you do not want to miss. Read More

#63 – Inside The Mind w/ James Fitzgerald

James Fitzgerald, founder/director of OPEX Fitness, is back on the show! We build upon the meat of our last episode (Ep. 40) -- which was really about understanding how he organizes his thoughts, views the integration of systems, and structures high level thinking. This episode  gets a little more personal. We talk about fear, adversity, insecurities, higher purpose, and so much more. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. Read More

#60 – Functional Bodybuilding, Aerobic Development, and Individual Design w/ Marcus Filly

Marcus Filly is back for his 5th appearance on the show! Last time we chatted was when I was about to start ATS 2.0. Since then, I've been really intrigued about the intricacies that go into building an engine, pacing, and learning your gears. For some of us, it's that time of year. For others, we just want to not die on the Assault Bike (yours truly). Using myself as a case study, we talk about what breathing progressions might look like for long term development. Due to heightened interest, we keep the dialogue going around functional bodybuilding and the evolution we've seen over the last 6 months since the birth of Awaken Training Series. I measure time in podcast episodes. So this was also a surreal reflection for me from our first episode ever (EP17). Always a fulfilling conversation with this guy. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Read More

#59 – Freestyle Calisthenics: The World Is Our Gym w/ Rain Bennett

Rain Bennett is an independent international documentary filmmaker who creates projects focused on cultural or social issues, food, music, art, and health. He created the movie Raise Up: The World Is Our Gym to document the history of the art form and the new age of calisthenics. I'm beyond excited to chat with him today because I strongly believe in building bridges between disciplines to have a cross exchange of information and ideas. I appreciate the creativity, style, and expression of movement that calisthenics contributes to the fitness community. Rain does a ton of consulting with businesses around storytelling to help them connect with their audiences and customers. He does a phenomenal job of translating his skillset in filmmaking and storytelling into actionable items for fitness professionals to use in this new age of technology. Read More
