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.

 

Enjoy the show!

Tina decided that this just wasn't for her and lucky for us, she figured it out after the first episode of the show.  Luckily, one of our other finalists was still very interested in Becoming Ultra, so, we introduce her on today's show. Becoming Ultra follows the journey to becoming an ultra runner from day one of training!

To be able to listen to someone at the top of their respective sport give advice as to what is helping them succeed and to be able to apply it to anyone at any level is what the Athlete On Fire show is all about.  We have done this very well on today's show.  Whether it's a mental or physical concept, every athlete will be able to take away something interesting to apply to themselves.

How does he approach running the Grand Canyon?  Why did he finish the race after taking a wrong turn at mile 92?  What drives him? What is his race strategy coming from high altitude?  What mental tricks does he use when competing?

 

Enjoy the show!

Before we can go into any other detail, the question of "why even start?" needs to be addressed.  There are going to be a thousands reasons. What is yours?  Do you want to make more money? Be more flexible?  Have other creative outlets?  All of the above like your hosts.  This one might get you thinking!

We are excited to introduce a new show that focuses on two entrepreneurs each with over 15 years in the health, fitness, and sports performance industry. They both have gone on to business in multiple industries including videography, marketing, media, and event production.  The idea of staying in the industry they love, health and fitness, and still be able to chase other creative ideas is the basis of this show.  Enjoy another show from Athlete On Fire.

On this episode our host talks about why running in an organized event isn't always the best option.  Sometimes you just need to run for your self and leave the extrinsic motivators out of the equation.  Also, the team people from all over the country (yes we can say that now) are signing up for and why Scott is running 62 miles on his dad's birthdays.  His why's may be similar to yours.
