Our guest played college basketball and modeled as a young athlete for some of the biggest brands in the world.  An invite to a boxing gym, that he actually hated, spurned the athlete he is now. 

We talk a lot about how to control and regulate emotion and adrenaline in sport from visualization to practicing the mental game.  He gives a great plank challenge for anyone to try out too.

Tons of energy, tons of passion.
