Chris Bennett | Finding Our Best Possible Run
00:38:34

With most gyms still closed and team sports on hold, running is more vital than ever—but it’s also more constrained. Good thing we have a teacher like Chris Bennett to help us find our stride. As the head coach of Nike Run Club, he’s been telling us for years that our best runs aren’t measured by distance or time but by how they make us feel. On this episode of Trained, he talks about how that shift in mindset can improve our long-term performance, how we can practice good running etiquette while social distancing, and how we can still get a runner’s high even if we can can’t run.

Vinh Pham | Why PT Might Be Your Workout Game-Changer
00:42:08

If you consider physical therapy something you do when you’re injured, you’re not giving it enough credit. Sure, manual therapy (things like myofascial release, mobilization, massage, and more) can help you move pain-free, but it can also help you move more freely—so you can get the most out of every workout for a really, really long time. That’s what physical therapist and owner of the innovative Myodetox clinics Vinh Pham believes. In this episode, Vinh describes how his approach to recovery is shaking up the ever-evolving field of physical therapy, explains why you should be foam rolling your abs, and provides at-home DIY PT exercises you can do in 10 minutes a day that can help minimize pain and maximize your movements.

Shaquem Griffin | How to Maintain Your Confidence in the Face of “No”
00:28:10

When Shaquem Griffin was 4, he had his left hand amputated. Growing up, that didn’t hold him back from much, including playing football—even though most of his coaches, players, and friends didn’t think he’d ever be able to make more than a hobby of it. Shaquem, now a linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks, holds some of his sport’s top awards and has certainly proved his doubters wrong. In addition to training and practicing relentlessly, Shaquem has spent his entire life honing an unbreakable never-give-up mindset. It’s what has allowed him to defy expectations and develop unwavering self-confidence that has taken him all the way to the top. In this episode, Shaquem breaks down how his approach to self-talk, recovery, nutrition, and more helped him achieve what seemed like an impossible dream.

Ellen Latham | When Setbacks are Your Biggest Training Asset
00:33:51
If you asked Ellen Latham twenty years ago where will you be in the next ten years, she probably would have said, "working at my dream job." But when Ellen was in her early 40s, raising a child as a single parent and pursuing her career as a fitness instructor, she was suddenly let go from that dream job. She had to weigh her options: she could either give up or forge a new path. What started as Ellen’s small cycling classes grew into a thriving fitness movement built on the idea of accepting your setbacks in order to overcome them: Orangetheory. Ellen’s years of research, expertise as a fitness instructor, and her own challenges have shaped the philosophy behind Orangetheory; it’s for everyone, at any level, no matter your ability. On this episode, Ellen breaks down the science behind every Orangetheory workout, what it takes to be not just a good but a great trainer, and why anyone, no matter your training goals, should make fitness a lifestyle.

Dr. Joel Kahn | Food is Medicine
00:34:38
When most people think about nutrition and fitness, they think about burning calories, weight loss, or fueling their body. But what we eat determines so much more than how we look, feel, or what we do at the gym. Our approach to nutrition says a lot about our values, our training and health goals, and the type of life we envision for ourselves. On today’s episode, we sit down with Dr. Joel Kahn, a cardiologist, best-selling author and a proponent of vegan and plant-based diets, who has learned that while nutrition looks different for everyone, finding the right one for you can improve your longevity, performance, sleep, and your own sense of self. Dr. Kahn will debunk some of the science behind the latest fad diets, explain how nutrition can stave off heart disease, and dive deep into the specific plant-based foods that everyone should put on their plate every day.

Simon Sinek | Finding Your “Why”
00:28:36
Think about your training ambition: When does it change? What hurdles get in the way? How do you keep yourself going? And how often do you think about why you’re doing what you’re doing? Finding your “why” ––your motivation, your belief, your cause –sets people up for greatness. And no one understands this idea better than Simon Sinek, an author, ethnographer, organizational consultant, and self-proclaimed optimist, who has dedicated his research, books, and career to helping people find their “why” and achieve their long-term goals. On this episode, Simon gives us tips on how to find and stick to our own “whys,” walks us through the best way to manage stress and unpacks the idea of training as “an infinite game.” Because when you approach your training routine as something that can’t be won, that has no end, you give yourself room to constantly improve and focus on the process instead of the outcome.

Melissa Hartwig-Urban | Reset Your Relationship with Food
00:31:18
Food is complicated. The “rules” change all the time, and every body is different. So how do you decide what’s right for you? For Melissa Hartwig-Urban, Co-creator of Whole30 and four-time New York Times bestselling author, it was a process. She started blogging about her “elimination diet” as a way to improve her training and recovery and share her results with her training community. Ten years later, her approach has become one of today’s most-popular eating programs: The Whole30. In this episode, Melissa explains why The Whole30 isn’t meant to be a long-term diet but, rather, an experiment to figure out which foods work best for you. She also provides us with tips on how we can learn to identify, cook, and eat “real food,” how to make meditation a consistent part of training, and how we can all cultivate a healthier relationship with food in order to bolster our performance, recovery and mindset.
