Episode Date
Ken Kilday: The New Tough Leader - Being a Leader Means Not Only Knowing The Words to Say, But Also Putting Action Behind Those Words  — Feed Me Fuel Me #117
01:07:13

According to our guest this week, leadership coach and mentor, Ken Kilday, the failure of leadership presently lies in the fact that people in influential positions know the words to say, yet aren't capable of putting action behind those words. There tend to be two kinds of leaders that seek Ken's counsel: those that are proactive, seeking to bring their blindspots and shortcomings to the forefront, and those that are reacting to a failed state of leadership and Ken's coaching is a last ditch effort to right the ship.

 

Part of the definition of leadership is to influence. Another way of putting it is to influence another to do what you want when they otherwise wouldn't.

 

Ken’s breadth of leadership experience provides him the unique ability to help leaders understand that effecting positive change is the key to overall success. The challenges of navigating ever-changing corporate cultures, bureaucracies, and financial goals provided the catalyst for him to create a business consulting firm based on

 

The ‘New-Tough Leader’ mentality of success equips leaders with tools to expect the best, lead with compassion, and inspire each individual to their greatest strengths in order to create an environment of success for themselves and their teams.

 

Dive in with us and listen closely as Ken explains what it means to be a New Tough Leader!

Why Our Parents Had Nutrition all Wrong and Raising Ryan Fischer w/ Ryan’s Mom — Real Chalk #53
01:36:37

 

 

What do nutrition trends, ex-girlfriend stories, and family gossip have in common? They all get air time on this long-awaited episode featuring my mom, the one and only Kim Karecky. She’s been my biggest supporter through all my endeavors, and she’s here to talk about how the definition of “healthy” has changed in her lifetime and what she’s learned about her own eating habits. We take a look in her fridge, reminisce about my childhood, and swap stories that will make you laugh out loud.

 

You may have listened to other podcasts about my background, but you’ve never gotten the kind of inside look that this episode will give you—from my favorite snacks as a kid, to what it was like to call girls in high school, to how I became the crazy-jacked track athlete in high school. It’s all here, and it’s all riddled with commentary from the woman who knows me best. She tells it like it is and is unashamedly herself, iced coffee obsession and all.

 

As always, there’s a ton of great info packed in here too, both common sense and totally nonsensical. Do you know how low-quality fat affects your brain? Did you know you can pull your heart muscle? Or that if you’re short enough, you can get a handicapped placard?

 

Listen and enjoy!!

- Ryan

42:00 Ryan explains the effects of stress scientifically

43:30 Fridge clean-out: Ryan’s mom edition

45:45 How food labels trick you

54:00 “Organic” is a lie

55:30 Kim’s got a point: you don’t see recalls on ice cream and candy bars

59:30 “Sensible eating” looks different for everyone

1:00:00 Your brain on low-quality fat, and why it’s harder to be healthy than it used to be (RIP milkmen)

1:05:00 Even wild animals are getting sick

1:06:30 What you need to know about “grass-fed”

1:08:30 Raw milk is a terrible choice (bacon and bear meat are also bad)

1:14:30 Why there’s corn syrup in everything, and no actual maple syrup in maple syrup

1:19:30 Welch’s grape jelly is really just sugar

1:22:00 The wisdom of religion

Building Something Bigger Than Yourself Serves You As Much As It Serves Others w/ Jon Boles  — Feed Me Fuel Me #116
01:17:36

This week we are on the mic with business coach and entrepreneur, Jon Boles. Jon is an embodiment of evolution, both in purpose and in business.

 

Hailing from smalltown middle America, Jon's parents separated when he was just 5 years old. From there his life would never be the same. Living two different lives, under two separate roofs. As he got into high school, he would become better known in his neighborhood for dealing drugs, than a standout athlete. It was through this experience that he learned how to, and more importantly, how not to do business. His secret would eventually be discovered by his parents, and make his way into rehab.

 

After rehab, and serious self-discovery, Jon moved into the city, where he found his true gift: NETWORKING. He moved away from pedaling dope, to creating nightlife experiences and connecting people, slowly building a new business model in the process.

 

Thriving on this creative genius, Jon has built, and sold multiple companies, and has learned to dampen the inner dialogue of shame associated with his life path. He has overcome much, and is now on a mission to affect millions with the launch of his newest venture, Avintiv Media. This week we cover everything from embracing your past, maximizing your influence for the greater good, and not being ashamed of your growth and abundance.

 

Let us know what resonates with you after hearing Jon's journey! We appreciate you joining us on this week's episode of Feed Me Fuel Me on the Shrugged Collective!

Why Corrective Exercise, Chiro’s, and Physical Therapists Should Be Replaced By Strength Coaches w/ Bret Contreras  — Barbell Shrugged #361
02:02:08

Bret Contreras has become known in the strength and conditioning industry as the Glute Guy because of his expertise in helping clients develop strong, shapely glutes. As the former owner of Lifts Studio in Scottsdale, Arizona, he has worked closely with hundreds of clients ranging from sedentary people to elite athletes, and he invented a glute-strengthening machine called the Hip Thruster.

He is the author of the bestselling book Bodyweight Strength Training Anatomy and co-author of Strong Curves: A Woman’s Guide to Building a Better Butt and Body.

 

In this episode, we talk about why corrective exercises do not work, why a qualified strength coach is more important than a rehab specialist, how to find a strength coach that understand proper progressions for injuries, why strength training is so much safer and healthier than being weak, and more.

 

Enjoy!

Training NFL Athletes, Increase Recovery by 75%, and Neurological Training for Odell Beckham Athleticism w/ Christopher Knott  — Real Chalk #52
01:48:47

Innovation is the name of the game, and Chris Knott is at the forefront. As a former professional baseball player, Chris started learning about the role the brain plays in recovery when he didn't want surgery on his pitching arm. He's so good at what he does now that he's sought after by household-name athletes like Odell Beckham, Jr. Chris' approach to injury prevention and recovery looks at the body as a whole, and doesn't stop when the pain goes away.

 

It's not a one-size-fits-all methodology either — Chris uses his in-depth understanding of physiology to identify each athlete's unique weaknesses, and works to change the necessary stimuli to target them.

 

You know how Real CHALK episodes go: we drop a lot of knowledge, we talk a lot of sh*t, and we flip the scripts on a whole bunch of common health and fitness misconceptions. We also tell it like it is and say the things no one wants to hear (like if you have to ask if you can make it to the CrossFit Games, you can't).

 

Do you know why muscle stim isn't actually effective recovery? Turns out the Soviets are smarter than we are and if you're a habitual foam roller, you're most likely doing it all wrong. Want to be a trainer for pro athletes? Chris has some straightforward advice for you: don't. He also has wisdom to share about creating a positive culture in a gym, what recovery should actually look like, and why the proven method is probably not the best one. And have you ever wondered how your trainer feels about your bench press goal?

 

We get brutally honest about clients, coaches, and the reality of the fitness industry—while also explaining a ton of acronyms you can use to impress your friends. Check it out!

It Takes Vulnerability To Get Through Trauma w/ Milam Byers  — Feed Me Fuel Me #115
01:14:02

Milam Byers goes deep with us this week on Feed Me Fuel Me.

The lead guitarist of the band Bleach shares his experience with reforming his identity after the band broke up. How do you stay positive. How do you remain present for your family, your wife, your kids, after everything you’ve ever known is over and done with?

Compound your identity crisis with the loss of your brother on the battlefield of the war in Afghanistan, and you have a lot to process very quickly. Only through the expression of vulnerability, and the humility of voicing everything he kept inside, was Milam able to overcome the end of and old life, and loss of a loved one.

Now he has shifted gears and made it his life’s mission to empower those that have less. Driving the mission of Food for the Hungry  and Striking Out Poverty, Milam is connecting athletes with a passion for change with communities that struggle in the third world.

In Milam’s words, “No one ever got upset because they gave too much.” Enjoy Milam’s journey and thanks for joining us for this week’s episode!

Rock Bottom to Rock Star w/ Chad Mcbain  — Real Chalk #51
01:40:47

Social media is the future, and in order to dominate your field you must have a strong social media presence with unique influencers, organic content, and ingenious marketing. Which is why you are about to listen to my man Chad McBain.

 

Chad has helped build several 7 figure businesses by being the “man behind the scenes” and setting a ridiculous standard for what it means to be an expert in social media marketing. Are you having trouble in this area at all!? Then this is definitely the episode for you. Chad lays out some ground rules that make people successful or ultimately make people broke. Having been in his own whirlwind of ups and downs, like myself, he points out the most important factors that kept him motivated during every step of the way.

 

We also touch on several new business ventures that he is currently working on with his significant other (Laci Kay Somers @lacikaysomers… Who just happens to have 10M followers) including cryptocurrency, music, and exotic car businesses.

 

This episode literally has a little bit of EVERYTHING in it with a super casual feel. You’re going to learn a ton while also feeling like you’re sitting on the couch right next to us. Let’s bro out, get motivated, and learn some things. From rock bottom to rock star… Have great listen!

The Man, The Myth, The Mushroom: Storytime with the Founder of Four Sigmatic, Tero Isokauppila  — Real Chalk #50
01:06:24

Tero Isokauppila knows more about mushrooms than you ever thought possible, and he breaks it all down in ways that the average human can understand. (Don’t want to be an average human? Start drinking mushroom coffee.) Originally from Finland, Tero has farming and science in his blood, and he brings this heritage to bear in everything he does with his company, Four Sigmatic. It’s his goal to improve people’s life quality, using nutrition as a stepping stone to whole-person wellness.

 

His new book, Santa Sold Shrooms, will be published soon and it will blow your mind. We talk about the origin of the Santa Claus story we know today (hint: it involves psychedelic mushrooms), and dive into the controversial possibility that well-known religions were based on mushroom-induced hallucinations.

 

Tero explains the meaning of Four Sigmatic, how cordyceps were discovered, and why you shouldn’t eat raw mushrooms—using a semen analogy—as well as how foods become superfoods and why we need to care about eye health. It’s an info-packed episode that will make you feel smarter before you’ve even started drinking Lion’s Mane. Get educated!



Episode Highlights:

2:50 🍄 Tero’s origins: degrees, parents, heritage

4:20 🍄 Why natural supplements don’t appeal to athletes, but adaptogens are different

7:00 🍄 Some science-y sh*t about nutrient density, and what “four sigmatic” means

9:10 🍄 If you give a yak a mushroom...(how cordyceps was discovered)

11:15 🍄 Why you shouldn’t eat raw mushrooms (there’s a sperm analogy in here)

13:15 🍄 The cure for cancer is...mushrooms??

17:00 🍄 The new marketing landscape, and how information spreads

18:50 🍄 The four mushroom pillars

21:40 🍄 The next uncharted territories: eye health, immunity

28:00 🍄 The different kinds of magic mushrooms

29:40 🍄 What we currently know about mushrooms’ effect on the brain

31:50 🍄 The evolution of Santa Sold Shrooms

33:40 🍄 Details and spoilers

35:00 🍄 What do mushrooms have to do with religion? More than you might think

38:15 🍄 Rock-, plastic-, and oil spill-eating mushrooms

41:30 🍄 How a food gets to be super (Tero hates the word “superfood,” by the way)

45:00 🍄 The Four Sigmatic process, and how to sniff out a bullsh*t product

49:00 🍄 Don’t buy protein powder from China.

54:50 🍄 What a mushroom newbie needs to know

57:00 🍄 Books and other resources

 

Enjoy-

Ryan

The Path from CrossFit Coach to Marine, Finding a Mentor In Your Gym, and Mental Toughness for Marine Training w/ Jessica Woods  — Feed Me Fuel Me #113
01:07:44

When Jessica Woods came to CrossFit PHX life was not going her way. Back in Arizona and going through divorce, she was lost in a fog of indecision. It took almost a year to get back on her feet. Along the way, she had convinced herself that fitness was her life path, and made every attempt to prove that story true.

Although she was having an incredibly positive impact on those she served as a trainer and coach, she still felt empty inside. As we've proven time and again through the stories of our guests on Feed Me Feed Me Fuel Me, timing is everything.

Through soul searching and a few chance conversations with mentors like Derz, Jessica discovered that nursing was her calling, and decided to pave her new life path as a corpsman in the US Navy. As fate would have it, she ended up "greenside" serving alongside Marines.

We catch up with Jessica as life has come full circle to see what she has manifested in her new life of service!

Thank you to Jessica and all our service men and women!

The videos of him training with clients (or “teammates,” as he calls them) who have upwards of 100 pounds to lose have gone viral and gained him lots of attention in the fitness world.

I sat down with Eric at the Fit Expo in San Diego to talk about his brand and his experience with building his business. We discuss the similarities and differences in our stories, how we found our callings, and why failure isn’t the worst thing. Turns out, landing in a federal prison camp can be exactly what needs to happen for you to figure out what your purpose in life is—who knew?! Plus, we take some hits at those pyramid scheme-based shake companies, hate on water breaks and Botox, and deal some hard truth about what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. This episode is a wild ride, don’t miss it!

He has become a success despite his many transitions and the absence of his father. This week on Feed Me Fuel Me we sit down with Kory, now thriving and coaching at CrossFit 760, to discover how he developed the strength to forgive!

Nikki Leonard has been in the social media and fitness industry for over 10 years. She has been the face of massive supplements brands, a figure champion, a CrossFit athlete, and currently a mom/entrepreneur. Having been part of her life for a little over 2 years, I had the opportunity to watch and learn so much from her in terms of social media and business building.

Nikki also happens to be beautiful and hilarious which as we know is a rare combo in this day an age. In this episode we literally hit just about everything for a few minutes including her relationships with these past companies, her personal life, a bunch of hilarious history between us (which never disappoints), her new fitness app, and life as a Mom.

I think so many of you out there who have been following me for a long time are really going to enjoy this episode - as well as the true Nikki Rica fans out there. Funny, personal, real, and you’re going to feel like your sitting down with some of your best friends just shooting the sh*^.

Fix Your Marriage and Relationships w/ Ashley Bledsoe  — Feed Me Fuel Me #110
01:07:50

There is a point in everyone's life when they realize that they have been playing it small. On the other side of that moment you have to make a decision: Continue life in the shadows of others or start playing to your fullest potential.

 

Our guest this week made that choice and is playing it bigger than ever! Ashley Bledsoe crushes this episode of Feed Me Fuel Me. If you are in a relationship this one’s for you. If your relationship isn’t yummy, this one’s for you. If you find yourself asking your other half for permission, this one’s for you. If you tell yourself a story that inhibits your happiness and fulfillment, this one’s for you.

 

This one is deep & dope! Thank you Ashley!

Electrical Brain Stimulation for Optimal Performance w/ Dr. Daniel Chao — Barbell Shrugged #349
01:17:57

Dr. Daniel Chao, CEO of Halo Neuroscience and creator of Halo Sport, dedicated his whole life to understanding the brain and its function. Specifically, how electrical stimulation can help the brain more rapidly improve physical performance, cognitive function, and overall happiness.

 

Halo Sport is the first-ever brain stimulator used to accelerate movement-based learning. In other words, it speeds up the development of skill, strength, and endurance, depending on the type of training that you pair with it.

 

Halo Sport works by applying non-invasive, mild electrical current to the motor cortex (part of the brain responsible for movement), allowing your brain to build stronger connections and learn movement faster. For example: You can wear Halo Sport for 20 minutes before your training session, which gives you one hour of what neuroscientists call “hyperlearning” or “hyperplasticity”. Training with it accelerates gains across skill, strength, and endurance.

 

In this episode, we talk to Dr. Chao about how the brain is wired for movement, how to increase mastery of movements by 50%, incorporating meditation and visualization into performance that matters, how to increase fine motor skills and advanced movements through brain stimulation, how to maximize performance in CrossFit with 20 minutes of use in your warm up, and more.

 

Enjoy!

Testosterone, Sex Hormones & Hormonal Health w/ Laurie Christine King  — Real Chalk #46
01:15:00

Laurie Christine King (@lauriechristineking) is a dietetics grad, nutrition coach, educational blogger, and total badass in the nutrition and fitness space who utilizes social media as a free educational platform and specializes in hormone health.

 

Not only that, but she has a way of saying things that’s much more untraditional than most. Don’t get me wrong, it's always incredibly accurate, insightful, and well researched... It’s also hilarious, witty, and kind of truck driver-ish which makes it incredibly easy to read and listen to. The dynamic duo of Fisch + LCK will have you laughing your ass right out of your seat.

 

In this episode, we talk extensively on both men and women’s hormone health and cover topics including low testosterone, gynecomastia, testosterone therapy, and how to naturally improve hormone health. We then flip the script for the ladies and talk about something that may be tanking your sex drive, causing thyroid issues, keeping you from seeing gains in the gym, losing fat, or having the body composition you want.

 

This is the first time I’ve had a topic like this on the show and also the first time I’ve had someone on with a mouth just as dirty as mine. Get ready to learn a TON and have a blast while doing it. Tag and your share with your friends - this is an episode you wan’t want to miss!

The Steel Mace Practice and How The Strong Coach Helped Leo Make $20K in 2 Months w/ Leo Savage & Serena Elizabeth  — The Bledsoe Show #105
01:54:07

Leo Urquides, a.k.a. Leo “Savage”, is the creator of MaceMovement and founder of Steel Mace Flow. Leo is a Steel Mace Flow coach based in Austin, TX that travels across America teaching his Steel Mace Flow system.

His unconventional approach to training is based on his belief in function over muscle. This philosophy has lead him to the use of tools such as kettle bells, battle ropes, sandbags, body weight, and his favorite- steel mace. Leo is also a certified trainer through the ONNIT Academy in multiple disciplines: ONNIT Academy Foundations, Durability, Unconventional barbell, Battle ropes, Kettle Bells, and Steel Mace.

Serena Elizabeth, a.k.a. Steel Mace Gypsy, is a certified Steel Mace Coach, a Steel Mace Flow Guru, and an Onnit Steel Mace Specialist.

In this episode, we talk about how “The Steel Mace” makes you look like a badass warrior, how does this one tool heal your body and wake up to train all aspects of core and all the spaces in between with a 360-degree swing, and how ‘The Steel Mace’ impacted people on a deeper level not just their physique and how you can create the world you want with this practice.

We also dive into how The Strong Coach program changed Leo’s relationship with money and how to be open to receiving, as well as the freedom found by The Strong Coach and how Serena can simply just “Be” now. Leo and Serena both achieved a new-found confidence from The Strong Coach program and they trust themselves as coaches more than ever. Find out how to get the first week of The Strong Coach program for FREE!

 

Enjoy!

Hermonia w/ Jill Petersen  — Feed Me Fuel Me #109
01:13:51

Continuing our series of badass females on Feed Me Fuel Me, is Jill Petersen, founder of Hermonia. Jill has been on journey of personal growth and development for some time now.

 

As she would grow to find, the path to happiness and fulfillment begins within. Through an extensive process she was required to ask herself the deepest questions and find the gaps in her development. Jill was required to confront the reality that her failed relationships were the results of a void left behind by personal struggles with family. The kicker is, the stories Jill created, didn't even belong to her. She was subconsciously holding on to others' pain, validating a story that didn't really exist.

 

After a significant battle with postpartum depression, Jill realized that she needed to work on herself. Not only for herself, but also for her relationship with her husband, family and friends. Then came her epiphany: she wasn't the only one. That said, not many women are empowered with skills and tools to facilitate that kind of deep work on their own.

 

Insert Hermonia! Jill has created a service in which she coaches women to a place of strength where they were once weak. She has created a platform for women to find their voice again! Join us this week and learn about Jill's journey and the abundance she now lives in as a result of her mission to deliver strength where it was once absent for so many!!

 

Enjoy!

The Inspiring Story of a WWE Superstar and Serial Entrepreneur w/ Natalie Eva Marie  — Real Chalk #45
01:36:42

I’ve been friends with Natalie Eva Marie and Jonathan Coyle for years, and it’s unbelievable how much these two do. They’re some of the coolest people I know, and yet they’re still down to earth enough to send me a text to see how I’m doing or invite me over for a BBQ.

 

You might recognize Natalie from WWE's Smackdown LIVE in 2013, whose roster also features wrestlers like John Cena, or from the movie Inconceivable, which she starred in opposite Academy Award winners Nicolas Cage and Faye Dunaway. Natalie also had cameo roles on “Entourage,” “CSI: New York,” and “90210.” But don’t label her an actress just yet — She’s also a beauty and fitness expert with her own fashion and hair extension lines! She’s also been on the cover of literally every magazine and appeared in two video games.

 

Her husband Jonathan studied law before deciding to get his MBA instead. He also had his time in the spotlight — He was the face of several super-successful supplement brands, and campaigns like NIKE | UNBROKEN before he became Natalie’s full-time manager. He knows his stuff and he’s truly the brains behind the operation for this woman and all that she has going on.

 

It’s Natalie and Jonathan’s candor and passion that made them a blast to have as podcast guests. They have an amazing story to tell, and I can’t wait for you to hear it! Here we go!

Big Brother came into my life when I wasn’t myself and was struggling to reconnect with myself.

 

In this episode of Building A Badass, I talk about my experience on Big Brother (the TV show), how breaking my foot put me in a deeper dark place, how coming out of the house was a harder shell shock than I could have imagined, and how the messages of my fans helped me reconnect to myself and my why, pulling me back to a positive place.

 

2017 was hard as hell, but it was preparing me for the greatest gift I was going to receive in 2018, a child. This is the story of my struggle and what brought me out of it just in time to truly appreciate the largest blessing in my life, pregnancy.

 

Stay Relentless,

- Christmas Abbott

Let's Get Weird w/ Ronnie Teasdale  — Real Chalk #44
01:31:32

This episode is with an all time favorite guest, Mr. Ronnie Teasdale (@ra_of_earth), a.k.a Ravi Chander. He’s such an interesting character that literally every minute spent talking to him just brightens your day.

As an old friend and employee of his from the days of “Mean Streets” in Los Angeles... I’ve had a front row seat for his current journey. He’s gone from a regionals level CrossFIt athlete, gym owner, to training for the circus, a yogi, and is currently a student of all things life (and beyond).

Ronnie has a very interesting view on the ways he sees the world and the way he lives his life. For what may seem like pure “weirdness” to pretty much everyone, it’s really hard to not agree with almost everything he says.

In this episode, we touch on some MIND BLOWING stuff, including orgasms (a few other sex topics), the “reality” of “multiple realities”, and even religious beliefs (for a little). It will be the easiest and fastest listen you’ve had on a podcast in a while... And when it’s over... You’ll be thirsty for more.

Let’s enter the world of Ronnie Teasdale ladies and gentlemen. Buckle your seatbelt, it’s going to be a bumpy one ;)

Matt Cooper: Psychedelic Performance  — The Bledsoe Show #103
01:03:43

Matt Cooper, a.k.a Coop, is a nutrition consultant, strength & conditioning coach, and sport scientist from California. Driven by an obsession to expand human performance, Coop spends his time researching, experimenting, doing nerdy things, and building better humans in general at Stand Out Performance (Fast Twitch LA) in Compton, California.

 

Coop’s own personal journey began in athletics and fitness, until poor health and mental states befell him at an early age. This lead to him to become his own practitioner, and fuels his current work, marrying functional medicine and human performance to create suprahumans.

 

In this episode, we talk about psychedelics and human performance, training from a holistic perspective, mega-dosing and bio hacking with nutrition, why stress is a habit that can eventually embedded trauma into your nervous system, signs of overtraining and what this does to your equilibrium, tips to athletes who have hit a wall, how psychedelics can improve athletic qualities by accelerating learning skills, and more.

Building A Badass  — National Best Seller  — 6
46:10

In this episode of Building A Badass, I talk about having confidence in your own work and knowledge, and what you can give the world by being who you are. I tell you how I unexpectedly became a writer through living my passion and being curious about the world.

 

Through passion I was able to explore what good nutrition looked like, and figure out what works for me. Using those tools, I just kept growing my confidence stronger and stronger, which eventually led me to end up in a National Best Seller list.

 

Stay Relentless,

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Leader of Leaders w/ Aaron Guyett  — 107
01:02:08

Our guest this week, Aaron Guyett (@aaronguyett) has been given a warrior mind and body, that MUST serve, sacrifice, and lead in love for God and his fellow man. As a father, Marine, and coach, his why is summed up in seven words:

 

"Give your life in love for others."

 

Aaron wants people to know that they are loved and they matter. His intention through Leaders of Leaders (@leadersofleaders) is to give all of himself so that others may be lifted up for something greater than themselves. He cannot stand people mistreating the weak, taking advantage of the poor, or giving up to a life of victimhood. He believes we are all strong beyond measure, and even more so when we experience God's love and everlasting life.

 

Thanks for joining us this week, and let us know what stays with you after listening to Aaron's journey on this episode of Feed Me Fuel Me!

 

Enjoy!

Real Chalk  — Maternity Expert, Entrepreneur & Certified Boss Ass Bit*^ w/ Nancy Anderson  — 43
01:15:05

This episode is peppered in with all the things; how to start and grow an online business, follow your dreams while answering to no one, raising the standard of care for pregnancy and post pregnancy women, debunking pregnancy fitness myths, nutrition chat, and so much more.

 

Fitness and nutrition expert, Nancy Anderson (@nancyandersonfit) M.S. Kinesiology, has paved the way for women to be less scared of “ruining” their bodies from pregnancy, training hard during pregnancy (Crossfit anyone?!), prioritizing self care, and being the breadwinner in her family. Gender norms? WTF is that? She gets raw, real, and down and dirty to how she moved her training business from the gym to online and is on her way to almost a 10x year in her second year of business.

 

In this episode, she chats about how she did it, her tips for others who want to start their own business, finding your passion, and how to stand out in an industry that is so inundated with the “kardashian effect” as she calls it - meaning seeing through the ‘fake-ness’ on social media.

 

Mom of 2 (both c-sections), Nancy trains over 1,000 moms every month online helping them train for pregnancy, train during pregnancy, heal their bodies and bounce back post pregnancy without any of the fluffy pink dumbbell bullshi*t. Real programs, real workouts, real results, based on real science.

 

Listen here for all of this and more plus a few f*bombs. Sorry in advance!

The Bledsoe Show — Paris Robinson: Surviving Gangs, Drugs and Prison - 102
01:28:45

Paris Robinson survived drug addictions, being shot 4 times, became homeless and paralyzed. In this episode, Paris opens up about the failings of chasing material and outer things to fix inner happiness, going from football role models to gangster role models, heroine, crack, mushrooms and trying to find drugs of choice to try to fix life problems.

Paris also talks about how he found supportive people even behind bars, how he received messages from his dead mother that gave him hope to live, how he overcame what was medically impossible to find body movement again, how deciding to do that one thing you've never done might change your life, keeping to the present times so you don't fall back to your old ways, finding strength to stay focused and on track, and more.

Barbell Shrugged  — I Want Villians in CrossFit w/ Aaron Hinde  — 342
01:13:12

Aaron Hinde is Co-Founder and President of LIFEAID Beverage Company, a leading manufacturer of premium, healthy, and convenient nutritional products designed to boost performance and speed recovery for people pursuing active and healthy lifestyles.

 

Aaron's passion for athleticism and his ability to equip people with the formula to perform at maximum capacity has played a major role throughout my career. After earning a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College, he served as Clinic Director at Hinde Chiropractic Sports Injury and Pain Center for over ten years. As one of the top practices in Santa Cruz County, he helped over 5,000 individuals, including professional athletes, erase their pain and return to function as quickly as possible.

 

Being immersed in the health field, Aaron noticed a genuine need in the marketplace for clean and effective sports drinks without the sugar and artificial flavoring. In 2011, he co-founded LIFEAID to provide individuals with specially formulated, low-sugar, high-value natural supplement beverages.

 

In this episode, we talk about the future of Fitaid IPO, growing successful companies inside CrossFit, throwing the baddest CrossFit Games afterparty, steroids in the CrossFit Game season, managing the messaging between sport and health in CrossFit, and more.

 

Enjoy!

Building A Badass — Nascar - I Got Duped! — 5
54:45

Hustling hard and taking only one day off per month, I had a full plate living out my dreams. I was invited to a NASCAR day in Charlotte, NC and reluctantly tried a new sport, pit crewing. After falling in love with hitting lug nuts, I figured out how to give this new passion a go, which juggled much more in my life than I anticipated.

 

In this episode of Building A Badass, I explain how I discovered NASCAR and the demands of a pit crew, the most unexpected sport. How I almost missed my chance, but instead learned the value of trying new things... Yet again. But this time I made history.

 

Stay Relentless,

- Christmas Abbott

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Shrugged Collective w/ Doug Larson  — 106
01:02:39

To whom much is given, much is required. Or so they say. Doug Larson sees it a bit differently as he has been given much in the way of coaching and mentorship, so he has made it his mission to give as much, if not more, as he has received. Doug is the cofounder of Barbell Shrugged, one of the longest running podcasts in the fitness space and still going strong.

 

Doug has understood the value of coaching and mentorship since his adolescence, when his coach took him under his wing and introduced him to the world of strength and conditioning. He would go on to play football in college while building proficiency in mixed martial arts and jiu-jitsu. As his education flourished he followed his mentor to Memphis, Tennessee where he would attain his Masters in Movement Science and meet his eventual co-hosts and business partners Mike Bledsoe (@mike_bledsoe) and Chris Moore (@barbellbuddha). Together they would train together, run a gym, and start one of the most prolific fitness podcasts ever.

 

Join us this week as we dive deep into the journey of Doug's evolution from student, to teacher, to master. Find out why Doug has made it his mission to pass on as much knowledge, through as many mediums as possible (ebooks, seminars, podcasts, etc...), reciprocating all that he has been fortunate enough to receive. Doug truly is the embodiment of the abundance mentality and we can't wait to share his message with you this week on Feed Me Fuel Me!

 

Also, make sure to check out Doug's fresh new website - douglarsonfitness.com

 

Enjoy!

Real Chalk  — When Preparation Meets Opportunity w/ Anders Varner  — 42
01:20:29

Do you want to do big things?! Do you want to create opportunities for yourself that get you closer to where you want to be? Even if you don’t know where you want to be EXACTLY.

 

Anders Varner, Host of Barbell Shrugged, and myself, explain our story of preparation. What exactly were we doing before all these great things happened?! What were the steps we took to get here? Why did these things happen to us? Why don’t they happen to other people? What should you be doing more of to create more opportunities for yourself?!

 

This episode is an “all the feels” kind of episode that will get you inspired to want to work hard today. Think of Anders and I like your morning cup of coffee, and come hang out with us on this week’s episode on carrying opportunity through massive amounts of preparation, NOT luck. This episode was filmed in the Mecca of podcasting, my couch in Orange County ;)

Building a Badass — Activating My Dreams Into Reality — 4
41:51

I was never a competitor, ever, or so I believed. “I just didn’t have it in me” because someone else told me so.

 

In this episode, I walk you through how I stopped listening and believing other peoples limitations of myself, and ventured into something I knew I wasn’t, a competitive athlete, a business owner, and a Level 1 CrossFit Seminar Trainer.

 

In this single year, I reached three lifetime dreams, not goals. Not because I was ambitious and knew it could happen, but because I stopped believing other peoples limitations of me, and started taking a chance to fail. 2010 was the year I decided to start believing in my dreams, even if I was the only one who did.

 

Stay Relentless,

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Morning Chalk Up w/ Justin Lofranco  — 105
01:00:23

Justin LoFranco has a beautiful mind when it comes to community relations. If his career on the campaign trail in a previous life is any indication, some would say he’s a master. However, as many before him discover, the world of politics is cut throat, and your job security is tied to the opinion of the masses. This means, there is no security at all. After burning the candle at both ends for the majority of his twenties, Justin’s passion for late night dinners, networking, and ultimately relying on others for his success, came to end as his delegate was not reelected.

 

Rather than move on and join another campaign, Justin moved home. He had been introduced to the culture and community over the years while assisting in the management of campaigns. Yet, he had not been exposed to a resource that was absolutely dialed in with world community of CrossFit. A resource that showcased, the good. The bad. The ugly. But more often than not, the amazing things going on in the global neighborhood that is CrossFit. It is an entity with its own vernacular that transcends culture, region, or dialect. CrossFit communities the world over have raised money for many different causes, from those for a member of a gym, to disaster relief in the aftermath of a hurricane. There are best practices and people out there innovating coaching and business. An entirely new industry has emerged as a result of this cultural boom. In his parent’s basement, Justin decided to take a grassroots approach to spotlighting all of these talking points in a DAILY newsletter. Thus “The Morning Chalk Up”  was born!

 

Where there is a will, there is a way, and Justin has tremendous will. He has paved the way, by giving up 2 years of his life to get the Morning Chalk Up off the ground and consolidating a WORLD’s-worth of content into a condensed format that further links CrossFitters across all boundaries. Need to know when/where the next big competition is? See the latest edition of The Morning Chalk Up. Want to see who is killing it in philanthropy? Open your email. Want to stay up to speed on what it takes to qualify for the Games? Look no further than your inbox.

 

Justin and his team, through his shear will to make sure that it grew legs and took off, have created something special and he shares it with the world literally EVERYDAY!! Subscribe to The Morning Chalk Up AFTER you listen to Justin’s journey in this week’s conversation, so you can gain perspective and truly appreciate what it took to become consistently amazing!

 

Enjoy!

Real Chalk  — Creating Better Content w/ Duke Loren  — 41
58:12

This episode is going to educate you on creating better content for your business or social media streams. Duke Loren, a professional photographer for CrossFit HQ, dives into the smallest most budget friendly ways to get started. We slowly begin to build from iPhone accessories, to base model professional cameras, the lenses you should think about getting, and a few other options.

After we get equipment out of the way, we dive into all the settings. What they mean, what settings you should be using, and few tips for editing.

As a previous CrossFit athlete, affiliate owner, and now professional photographer for CrossFit HQ, I thought this episode would be right up so many peoples alley. It’s such an important topic right now that not only makes you more valuable, but is slowly becoming a MUST asset to have.

If you can’t use use a computer or a cell phone your pretty worthless right? Well... If you want to win in business or social media and you can’t tell your story your also worthless. Content tells your story! Photos, videos, and words... I’m this episode, we knock out the photos and videos in English ;)

 

Have a great listen!

Building a Badass — A War Zone Saved My Life — 3
01:10:36

After seeing a flash into my chosen path, I decided to follow my mother’s footsteps into a war zone, Operation Iraqi Freedom. I took a job as a contractor in Iraq at 22 years old and jumped in blind, having no idea the consequences of my actions, good or bad.

 

Iraq turned out to be my “university” and taught me how to be relentless. Once in Iraq I had an epiphany during my first mortar attack and took action. Through the four years of my contracting service, I explored new parts of who I was, and who I wanted to become, the Badass you know today.

 

Stay Relentless,

- Christmas Abbott

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Dark Horse w/ Shane Farmer  — 104
01:01:07

The world works in mysterious ways. Sometimes the things that we perceive to be weaknesses are indeed our greatest strengths. For our guest this week, Shane Farmer, founder of Dark Horse Rowing, this is indeed the case.

 

Through rowing, Shane discovered the Camaraderie that is a natural byproduct of shared adversity. The ideal that in order for the greater good to prevail, challenging conversation is necessary. Those ideals, and a few not-so-random encounters along the way, have paved the way for the development of Dark Horse Rowing!

 

In this week’s conversation, we cover the many virtues that Shane brings to the table as he builds his curriculum, as well as his life and family. We’ll uncover the means and methods that create the sustainable fulfillment ever present in his life now. Join us and discover that being the Dark Horse isn’t such a bad thing.

 

Thank you for tuning in and allowing us to be a part of your journey!

Real Chalk  — Questions & Answers w/ Ryan Fischer  — 40
01:09:58

This podcast is compilation of questions that were asked via my social media and email platforms. Some are personal opinions, some are valuable business questions, and some are just down right random hilarity. Regardless of the questions asked, I promised to answer as many of them as I could in a 1 hour window.

 

This podcast is something I have always wanted to do for my following as it feel it brings us closer together. It shines light on my unique sense of humor, work ethic, and opinions that I’ve put together over the past 10 years or so in the fitness industry.

 

If you’ve been a fan of me for a while and you want to hang out with and have great time... Learn a few things... And laugh a whole bunch... This is the best podcast you’ll listen to all week ;)

 

To all my fans and supporters, this one's for you! Love you guys/gals :)

Building a Badass — A Look Into The Future, The Ditch — 2
32:21

In the second episode of Building A Badass, I tell a story about how a tragic car accident, where I watched my sister almost die, spun a major downward shift in my life, which included a long run with drugs and running wild.

 

I started victimizing myself to release responsibility of how I was feeling or what I did. I hid behind bad behavior and that “I don’t care” attitude,  which can only take you so far before you’re in some serious trouble. I became a victim to my circumstances.

 

Years later, I had a moment where I saw who I was destined to become if I stayed on the path I was currently on. It was shocking and discouraging. I had to make a change, but I didn’t have any idea what that looked like or even if I actually wanted to change at this point, I enjoyed the chaos.

 

Stay Relentless,

- Christmas Abbott

Feed Me Fuel Me  — The Alpha Hippie w/ Angelo Sisco  — 103
01:11:17

This week on Feed Me Fuel Me  we redefine masculinity with the Alpha Hippie, Angelo Sisco . Angelo is a celebrated business coach, and owner of O'Hare CrossFit in Chicago.

 

Angelo had it rough growing up, in home raised by his mother after his father went to prison. Angelo grew up in a neighborhood, where street fights and settling beefs with your fists were normal everyday activities. However, when you become a man in an environment where hustling was the preferred means to make ends meet, you pick up a thing or two: Like starting your own business so you never have to answer to anyone else, ever.

 

Angelo has been a self-starter and entrepreneur since his adolescence. However, because he was left to his own devices, with no shortage of adversity in his upbringing, his vulnerability was left behind and looked down upon. In recent years, Angelo has rediscovered his essence, who he is at his core, and has chosen to bring that essence to light via the Alpha Hippie movement in which strength is discovered in vulnerability.

 

Take a listen to Angelo's journey to this new level of being!! We appreciate you joining us, and allowing us to be a part of your journey!!

Real Chalk  — The Entrepreneur Path w/ Dave Driskell  — 39
01:48:41

This weeks episode is with Dave Driskell Owner of CrossFit Wanderlust in Bali, international man of mystery, male model, fittest old man in asia, and a laundry list of other unique traits and talents that have gained almost 80k followers on the GRAM.

 

Dave and I go way back to when CrossFit was originally booming, and Instagram had just started. It was an incredible time for both the sport and social media. Although Dave and I walked 2 very different paths over the years (He was the social media guy and I was the young competitor), we still wound up doing the same thing later on in life. We opened gyms! Super successful ones! On completely different ends of the world!

 

In this episode, we talk about every single step that we took to get our gyms to where they are. We talk about the contracts we signed, the problems we encountered, things we would have changed if we could do it all over, and so much more. Did I mention it’s super funny? Well, it wouldn’t be a Real Chalk episode if it wasn’t funny ;)

 

If you have ever thought about opening a gym, a business, or ever just wondered exactly what it all entails, then this episode is for you. This is not your typical bullet point style talk however. We get super in depth and it’s truly an amazing listen with tons of valuable knowledge on decision making and business.

 

Enjoy!

Barbell Shrugged  — Laird Hamilton, Gabby Reece, and PJ Nestler: Underwater Training  — 335
53:06

Underwater training is growing in the mainstream through the work of Laird Hamilton, Gabby Reece, and PJ Nestler. XPT (@xptlife), is a training methodology that is revolutionizing strength and conditioning. It combines the practices of breath work, underwater training, ice baths, and saunas into one program that is scalable and easily accessible to the public. This combination allows participants to connect with their nervous system, the down regulatory properties of breath training, as well as the performance metrics needed to push people to their genetic potential. XPT is the wave of the future. Underwater training is growing in popularity and the benefits are being felt worldwide.

 

XPT Certifications and Experiences: www.XPTLIFE.com.

 

Laird Hamilton (@lairdhamiltonsurf), big wave surfer, inventor, and pioneer of tow surfing and foil boards has been using underwater training to prepare himself for the rigors of big wave surfing for decades. His path to learning about underwater training started by combining rock carrying in the ocean which is a custom training in Hawaii where he is from. The methodology advanced and he has created a system in which he can deploy the training to the masses.

 

Gabby Reece (@gabbyreece) is a lifelong athlete, model, and entrepreneur most commonly known for her multiple gold medals in beach volleyball. Gabby is often the first test dummy for the training formulated in the brain of Laird Hamilton. Her role at XPT has taken shape in the form of coaching expertise, specifically in the underwater training portion of XPT. Her leadership in and out of the pool can be felt with her powerful voice, calming demeanor, and her background in athletics lets you know she means business.

 

PJ Nestler (@coachpjnestler) is the Director of Performance at XPT and is responsible for creating the curriculum for the XPT experiences and certifications to deploy to the public. Nestler’s background is in MMA and strength and conditioning but specializes in building courses to bring a practical approach to delivering high quality, science based research and coaching to the strength and conditioning community.

 

In this episode, we talk about breathwork for performance and health, pool training, ice baths for recovery, saunas and heat shock proteins, the XPT certification and experience, and more.

 

Enjoy!

Building a Badass — She’ll Need to Wear a Cup: My First Political Stand — 1
40:45

Building A Badass is a show where I tell my story through the greatest eight events of my life through eight podcasts. Building A Badass is about my personal experiences that shaped my mindset, personal growth, success and failures, and how I became the badass that I am known for to this day.

 

Through these intimate stories of my personal struggles or celebrations I share my take away lessons and even emotional baggage, how that shaped me for good or bad, and how I came out of all of it at the end. Most of you know some of the highlights but this will dig a bit deeper into more of me, who I am, and how I became that.

 

I hope you enjoy it or at least take away your own lesson from my experience. That’s exactly WHY I share so much of my past both good and bad, so that people can see it’s possible to become what you believe no matter what cards you’re dealt. This is why I have the mantra: Everyday you wake up with the opportunity to change your life.

 

In the first episode, I tell the story of how I wanted to play baseball for no other reason than it was what I preferred. I go into how I watched my mother take a positive stand against sexism and I was in awe. How that time I didn’t understand the impact that watching her handle that situation would do for my ability to take a stand for myself, and that I also didn’t realize what I was doing for myself, which was learning how to follow my passions, regardless of what people thought, how I was mistreated, and what the established rules were.

 

Stay Relentless,

Christmas

Feed Me Fuel Me  — The Space Between w/ Dr. Cara Miller  — 102
01:40:21

Dr. Cara Miller, MDiv, PhD is a developmental psychologist and performance coach. This week we dive deep into the psychology of the space between where you are, and where you actually want to be. Dr. Miller goes for it in this episode, taking Mycal Anders through an exercise that exposes a very deep subconscious negative feedback loop that has been inhibiting his ability to grow for quite some time.

 

Dr. Miller specializes in adaptive leadership and is an organizational designer for complexity, growth and performance. She has been quite influential in the world of organizational leadership. She spends the majority of her time helping the leaders of small start ups and multi-million dollar enterprises alike identify the holes in their systems, cultural inefficiencies, and mechanisms that can be put in place to create not only a culture of growth, but empowerment from the top down. For someone who has worked with and around the brightest minds in academia as a professor at the University of San Diego and Harvard, she has a such a polished delivery of very complex ideas and methods, that they are easily understood and applied by her clients.

 

For her to work her magic and really assist those in her audience in getting out of there own way to attain what they truly want, she simply requires two things: their willingness, and their permission. So as you sit down with us this week, allow Dr. Miller to stretch you by exposing the negative feedback loop you have running in your head, which in turn filters through to the actions and habits you present on a daily basis, and be willing to take an introspective look into yourself so that change can indeed occur.

 

Thank you for being open and willing to join us on our journey, this one is indeed at game changer!

 

- Jeff and Mycal

Real Chalk  — Orthorexia & Fitness Addiction w/ Erin Monson  — 38
01:24:18

Erin Monson is one of my in-house coaches at CHALK in Orange County California. She is an amazing athlete and a true specimen to look at it. In fact, I don’t think I have ever seen a single person in my life walk by her and not either stare or take a double take. She’s a beautiful woman no doubt and her body is one of a kind. However, beneath the surface is an addiction. Since I have met Erin, she has continually become more and more strict on her eating consumption, workout schedule, sleep schedule, and her availability of free time. To the point where several people have reached out in concern including her family.

 

Although she admits that this is something that has gone on for years, this is the first time in her life where she willingly admits it and is starting to take the necessary steps to become, “normal.”

 

In this episode, I have the pleasure of being able to talk to her about her problems for the first time and actually hear her side of everything. The effect it has had on her social life, relationships, family, and her own body. We dive into what orthorexia is and how popular it actually is in our space. As well as fitness addiction and the toll it can take on your body, especially a female.

 

Enjoy!

The Bledsoe Show w/ Brittney Bergen  — Evolving Nutrition #97
01:11:29

Brittney Bergen (@brittneybergen) started doing CrossFit 5 years ago in the basement of her house as a science teacher in a northern First Nations community. CrossFit lead her to taking her nutrition seriously and introduced her to powerlifting and Olympic weightlifting. Since then, Brittney had two podium finishes in powerlifting Nationals, a first place finish at the North American Powerlifting Championships, and has competed in two Olympic Weightlifting nationals.

 

Recently, Brittney has migrated her movement practice into the yoga world. She still picks up a barbell here and there, but she is more fascinated by the true meaning of the word “yoga”: bringing her body, mind, and spirit into union. Brittney is passionate about uplifting the world by helping individuals become fully-expressed.

 

In this episode, we talk about why seeing people's transformations is important, identity and how it can hold you back, the unconscious programs and beliefs that run our lives, how trauma shapes behavior, using weight gain as protection, how Brittney trains intuitively, and more.

 

Enjoy!

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Hold The Standard w/ Logan Gelbrich  — 101
01:15:13

What does it mean to be an adaptive leader? Logan Gelbrich didn't open a gym. He opened a school - Deuce Gym. He doesn't have coaches. He has teachers. At his school, they don't simply coach classes. They teach a curriculum.

 

From very humble beginnings, Logan has built a foundation on which his goals will stand upon. We caught up with Logan in the wake of his "Hold The Standard" Summit. To say that those in attendance had a few awakenings during the experience is an understatement.

 

We were fortunate enough to witness Logan go through the exact exercise that forced us to have that hard conversation with the person in the mirror and brings to the surface "blind spots" that hide in our subconscious. He walked us through the negative feedback loop that manifests in self-limiting dialogue, actions, and ultimately behavior. These conversations that we have with ourselves inhibit growth and progression by manifesting in our organizations and our relationships.

 

Logan shares with us how he has learned to be kind to himself and how empathy can be used as a tool for accountability. In this episode, Logan points out how his innate ability to endure has both positively and negatively affected his life. This episode bares one of the most honestly vulnerable conversations we've had and we know you'll be that much better for listening to the lesson Logan shares along his journey.

 

Enjoy!

Real Chalk  — Plant Based Power w/ Chris Manderino  — 37
01:17:41

Chris Manderino is founder of, a whole-foods plant-based company that helps people achieve optimal health. LYFE FUEL produces simple, functional products from trustworthy and sustainable sources.

 

Chris is a former NCAA and NFL player, who pursued an opportunity to live abroad while playing football in Italy post his NFL career. While in Italy, he was struck by the vast cultural chasm between the Italian approach to food and the American approach. Italians, even with all the pizza, pasta, downtime and copious desserts, seemed a much healthier population than the US.

 

Chris boiled it down to this striking difference: in Italy, food was simpler. The Italians used higher quality, mostly plant-based ingredients and had smaller portion sizes. His revelation inspired a career change, and ended up taking a job in the nutraceutical industry.

 

Later on, Chris decided to study dietary and training theories, and while most nutritionists and food experts disagreed on just about everything else, there was one thing everyone seemed to agree on: eating a plant-based diet is the most important thing you can do for your health.

 

Using this knowledge, Chris co-founded LYFE Fuel, which every aspect of the company is backed by science, right down to the amounts of each ingredient. Instead of simply throwing healthy ingredients together, LYFE’s products are engineered with the specific purpose of aiding absorption to make sure the body receives the full benefits of each and every life-sustaining nutrient.

 

In this episode, we talked with Chris about the main differences between plant and whey based proteins, how a vegan diet can change your body, the benefits of cutting out meat completely or even just reducing it, the impact the current food manufacturing processes have on our environment, and more.

 

Enjoy!

In this episode, we talk about the 3 questions to identify your purpose, what does it feel like when you’re not in your purpose, the sustainable way to be of service (are you being a martyr?), meeting your own needs first, what does it take to run a successful fitness business, how to join The Greatness Foundation to build homes for the homeless, and more.

 

Enjoy!

-Mike

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Always Faithful w/ Mike Burgener  — 100
01:17:14

If someone asked you what your crowning achievement is in your life, what would your answer be? For Coach Mike Burgener, the answer is simple: his kids! When you get through listening to our conversation with the man who has seen it all, and done it all in his life, it will make so much sense.

 

In this week's episode, we get into what this hard headed football player from Notre Dame learned as an Officer of Marines that has translated into the abundance mentality with which he leads today. The founder of Mike's Gym has dedicated his life to giving. As a result, he has made huge waves in the weightlifting community, and been instrumental in the development of coaches and athletes alike.

 

Because of Coach B's influence on weightlifting, and subsequent acquaintance with the likes of Greg Glassman as CrossFit was in its infancy, USA weightlifting's participant registration has increased almost tenfold. Given all of those accolades, still his crowning achievement revolves around his family.

 

You'll discover, as we did, that the metric of Mike's success is gauged by the fulfillment of his family. Nothing worth achieving, is worth achieving in the absence of family. Although he does not feel that anything happens due to luck, there is a greater plan at work. In focusing on building an institution in which he could bond with his children, be home and still serve his passion, the net he has cast over the landscape of fitness almost immeasurable.

 

The coaches that live and die by the "Burgener Warm Up", the athletes that have engaged in the CrossFit Weightlifting Seminar, and the athletes that have crossed over to competitive weightlifting after hanging out at Mike's Gym for a day numbers in the thousands. By serving his family, Coach B has impacted the world and truly set the standard for what it means to live a purpose driven life.

 

Sit back and set an intention to absorb a wonderful perspective on fulfillment, paying it forward, and relentlessly upholding the standard. Thanks for sitting down with Coach B, and sharing your light with our listeners!

 

- Jeff and Mycal

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Keep Moving Forward w/ Kelli Michelle  — 99
01:16:53

On this episode of Feed Me Fuel Me we are joined by Nutrition Coach and personal trainer, Kelli Michelle.. Kelli began her athletic career as a soccer player at Arizona State. Shortly after graduation, she found herself real estate, not fulfilling her life's potential and engaging in long stints of cardio in a caloric deficit to maintain what she thought was fitness. She would later discover that her habits and lifestyle were inline with symptoms associated with sports anorexia.

 

She was then introduced to resistance training for the stage in competitive bikini competitions. The regimen forced her to reexamine her relationship with food. She learned a lot about the good and the bad of competition nutrition regimens, dieting. Unfortunately, as a result of poor coaching and inattention to detail, Kelli would find herself hormonally imbalanced. A condition that can only be corrected with prescription medication or a drastic change in nutrition.

 

Since then, Kelli has been pivotal the last 3 years in the MACRO tracking community by educating coaches and clients on the BASICS of Macro tracking. She focuses on teaching people how to set up basic tracking skills and healthy objectives that directly impact their relationship with food. Kelli Coaches HIGH level fitness competitors, SPORT performance athletes & general population healthy living and weight loss. Kelli has a Sport Nutrition and Fitness Nutrition Endorsement, Nutrition Certification and completed her Masters level coursework at Arizona State University this past spring.

 

Join us this week as learn the details of Kelli's journey through the ups and downs of competitive performance only to finally figure out that everything she was looking for was inside. By changing her self-perception and attracting the right people into her circle, she has fostered a culture with a mission to change the world by helping people change their relationship with food.

 

Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your journey!

The Bledsoe Show w/ Benjamin Bunn - Green Beret to CrossFit Gym Owner #94
01:04:30

Benjamin Bunn (@coach_bunny) is a retired Special Forces Green Beret and Army Infantry Officer with over 17 years of service, who became a CrossFit gym owner. Ben owns Cigar City CrossFit (@cigarcitycrossfit) based out of Tampa, FL, and spends most his time training others in the gym. He is also working towards competing as a master in the CrossFit games and becoming a certified Yoga instructor.

 

As a former Special Forces Operator, Ben places value in functional fitness and mitigating the risk of injury. He is a strong believer that people should be able to run fast, lift heavy and throw a punch. Although he is no longer in uniform, service is still an important core value to him. Ben regularly volunteers with Team RWB, Exalted Warrior, and Companions for Heroes.

 

In this episode, we dive into how to transition out of the military in a healthy manner, the importance of community for veterans, organizations that are great to join as a veteran looking for community, war stories, how things get twisted by the news in regard to reporting war and how the news is now more interested in entertainment than being accurate, why Landmark Forum is a good idea for veterans, Viewing cannabis as a supplement more than a drug, and how cannabis can be beneficial for those who are suffering from various types of trauma (PTSD), and much more.

 

Enjoy!

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Whatever I Want w/ Beau Ash  — 97
01:06:43

It has been said, "the journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step." Our guest this week, Beau Ash, has taken many first steps as his life has unfolded into the chapters of his story.

Beau went through a journey of acceptance and self-love. One of the hardest concepts to grasp as we move through life, is the idea that with loss, comes growth. For a great deal of Beau's life, so many of the negative interactions he has experienced were the result of the projections he was putting out into the universe. However, in the wake of loss, he would discover that he indeed stood to grow the most.

Beau took a 4,100 mile road trip that manifested in deep reflection. He has gone to work on himself, answered a lot of hard questions, and faced a lot of conflicting truths. Once Beau began his deep dive into self, he discovered that his capacity to serve the world was extremely limited, and the self-work is never-ending.

However, Beau has come to a place where he values his time alone. He understands that in order to protect his energy, he must be in tune with who he spends time with, and what activities he spends that energy on. Beau has become a practitioner of his word.

In this episode, we discover all the elements that lead Beau from a polarizing rebel of authority, to a CrossFit athlete, to Yogi, to a man without any of those labels, walking a path of strength and peace. The freedom of thought achieved through years of introspection and reflection is apparent as he sets out to debut his podcast, "Whatever I Want", and a support group that redefines masculinity for men that are high performers, or want to be, but are inhibited because they stand in their own way.

 

Enjoy!

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Radical Candor w/ Scott Keppel  — 96
01:03:29

Scott Keppel is the owner of Scott’s Training Systems, a world class fitness studio located in Chandler, AZ that offers both in-person and online coaching. He specializes in post breast cancer recovery, pre/post- natal, pageantry training (he’s the official trainer for several states), weight loss and business owners/executives.

Scott is also a motivational speaker and nationally certified fitness and nutrition coach. He believes it is important to help clients achieve their optimal levels mentally, physically and emotionally. Scott’s mantra is to lead with “Why?”. When he starts training clients, his mission is to figure out what the significance of experience is supposed to be. He makes it a point to be tactfully honest with his clients, not only keep their expectations realistic, but to ensure that they understand that the victory lies in the process, not the outcome!

When he worked predominantly with fitness and figure competitors, coming to grips with the subjectivity of the sport when it came to judging, begins with acknowledging that you are indeed going to be judged. Then he made the shift to pageantry and building physiques in world where physical training can often be overlooked, or outright ignored due to the negative stigmas associated with women and weight training.

To take it one giant step further, Scott excels in working with special populations that include women who have battled breast cancer or recently had children. When it’s all said and done, what is required of his clients is to create a physique that facilitates confidence, performance, and an appreciation for the journey is a lot of honest conversations with tactful candor.

 

Enjoy!

Real Chalk  — Unsustainable Fast-track Model w/ James Fitzgerald  — 32
01:27:48

James Fitzgerald is founder and CEO of OPEX Fitness. His 20+ years of experience and service as a strength coach/technician, tireless practice on refining energy system work, nourishment and lifestyle balancing techniques, and training of other coaches, has made OPEX a sought after method of bringing fitness to a Higher Order.

 

James has found a desire and passion to understanding fitness through assessment, testing, research, programming and more. He has had many years of experience as an athlete from early childhood into adulthood, from playing top-level soccer, to short and long distance running, to CrossFit where he was crowned “The Fittest on Earth,” winner of the 2007 CrossFit Games.

 

In this episode, James shares how he found himself again after injury as a young athlete, how he always knew he wanted to deliver the gift of fitness to other people, how the current system of fitness is flawed and how to change it, why marketing is stronger than education – why people follow the next best thing every single time, why he hates the word biohacking, his take on drugs, psychedelics, weed, steroids, and more.

The Strong Coach  — How to Motivate Your Clients w/ Ben Pakulski — 4
01:00:24

Ben Pakulski a.k.a. Pak-Man, is an IFBB professional bodybuilder and winner of the 2008 Mr. Canada competition. In the IFBB, he finished 2nd twice in 2008. He also placed 2nd in the 2013 Arnold Classic competition, and 11th in the 2012 Mr. Olympia contest, which was his first-ever.

Ben began his interest in nutrition at 12 years old, when he read about vegetarianism and experimented with it for two years. At 15, he started lifting weights in Macks Gym in Toronto. Today, he is an accoladed athlete, competitor, coach, creator of #1 Muscle Building program MI40, and creator and host of the Muscle Expert Podcast.

In this episode, we dive into many ideas and philosophies Ben has adopted, avoided, and learned from. They include, punishing oneself through training, escaping pain through exercise, chasing something outside of yourself, placing self worth on the person you become through the process - not the outcome, how to win at life through discipline, the power of “Thank You”, why your program and nutrition isn’t as important as I think you it is, coaching vs cheerleading, and much more.

Feed Me Fuel Me  — To Be Self-less Requires a Little Self-ish w/ David Lovell  — 95
01:00:06

David brings a unique perspective of old marketing information to the dynamics of multiple business ownership, and modern trends in marketing for small businesses. Having mastered the process of managing multi-businesses and teams with a dynamic customer focused culture which drives sales and profitability. David has three advanced degrees in human development and Educational psychology, which shows in his passion for people and self-development.

In this episode, David shares with us the joys he's experienced along his journey, and why his passion has shifted from developing businesses in the fitness and wellness space, to the recovery end of the spectrum. The shift is result of a refined thought process in which David has acknowledged the way of the market from preventing overtraining to preventing under-recovering as a means to create longevity and increased performance.

David has had his own epiphanies over the years, but none more profound than the concept which he wraps his message in today: "If you plan to look after others, it is imperative that you look after yourself first." Self-care is paramount amidst David's philosophy of living in your creative genius to accomplish your greatest self.

There is a way to create the balance required to live a fulfilled life. The notion that one must go without, and live with the proverbial pendulum swinging far from center is antiquated in David's eyes. As he grows and develops the organizations he's created, he makes that abundantly clear when he has an opportunity to mentor those under his charge.

Join us this week, as David shares his wisdom with the Feed Me Fuel Me community and learn how to bring life's pendulum back to center while you build a great life and your greatest self!

The Strong Coach  — Coaching Culture w/ Adee Cazayoux — 3

Adee Zukier Cazayoux is founder and CEO of Working Against Gravity, who is also known as the "Barbell Gypsy". You can find Adee weightlifting, bobsledding, powerlifting, or competing in the NPGL or the CrossFit open. In 2016, she took a Bronze Medal at the Canadian National Weightlifting Championships.

Adee has a BAH Psychology, and Masters in Teaching. She is also a Precision Nutrition Level 1 coach, and is currently completing her Masters in Nutrition and Human Performance. As an athlete Adee has studied/trained under many renowned coaches, most notably Aimee Everett, national champion, Travis Mash, world champion powerlifter, and Steve Sandor, Hungarian national champion.

Adee is married to Michael Cazayoux, co-founder of Brute Strength, and host of Brute Strength Podcast. It was at Adee and Michael’s house that I began developing The Strong Coach program. Talking to both her and Michael helped get clarity on what is needed in the industry and how we can best serve that role.

There is no one way to be a coach, and Adee was my first client that I was not coaching as an athlete. She has exemplified organization and systems as a means of impacting people though her coaching. It's a real joy to have someone who used to be my student, now teach me many things.

In this episode, Adee talks about how she created her business, Working Against Gravity, which now has 28 coaches on team! We also dives into all things coaching: Coaching as problem solving, the process for training coaches, mistakes made over the years, how to communicate authentically with clients, how to onboard new clients, how to receive feedback from your clients to improve your coaching, how to create accountability with your clients, how to give advice your clients actually take, and much more.

Feed Me Fuel Me  — The Disruptor's Code w/ Ketan Makwana  — 94
01:08:54

Over the last 7 years Ketan has started, scaled a sold multiple businesses. He has also served as a Special Advisor to the former UK Prime Minster (David Cameron) on Youth & Business Policy; other work includes being part of the European Parliament & Commission working on the 2020 strategy for enterprise and employment.

 

When we asked Ketan where the momentum to continually pivot, reinvent, and repurpose comes from, his answer was simple, yet profound, "I was just ignorant enough to leap and my curiosity was bigger than my knowledge."

 

Through his years of consulting on both large and small scales, he has come to find commonality amongst those that fail to launch or plateau in success. Chief among these is the fear of success rather than failure. Ketan has become aware that what terrifies people the idea of actually accomplishing immense achievement.

 

In this episode, we dive into the three things that everyone must figure out, regardless of their station in life are: Who you are, what you're good at, and what you're in the business of. Ketan is a massive believer of staying in your lane - playing in your creative genius, and keeping things simple. Your lane is the activities in which you're able to deliver a result with minimal effort.

 

Often times people fall in love with the proverbial "Hero's Journey", completely missing the lessons told in the tale, only to repeat the same mistakes of their heroes. At the end of the day, 1% change in perception can manifest in 100% change in results. Therein lies the power of mentorship - "Spending time, rather than creating it."

He started his athletic journey as a child, playing multiple sports including soccer, baseball and golf, which eventually led to a collegiate career in soccer at the University of California, Berkeley. There he earned his degree in Molecular and Cell Biology with an emphasis in Nutrition and Physiology.

His interest in both athletics and human health and performance eventually led him to CrossFit in 2007. Marcus has gone on to compete at the CrossFit Games 6 times, three times as an individual (2016 12th fittest) and three times as a team member (2012 6th fittest team). Marcus was also the captain and member of the Phoenix Rise in the NPGL. For two years he has been voted to the all GRID league team, in 2016 earning 1st team honors, and in 2015 earning the award for leadership excellence.

He was formerly a CrossFit facility owner for 5 years, has completed all 5 of the OPEX CCP courses, and has coached clients remotely from all over the world. He has coached athletes at the CrossFit Games as well as several Regionals athletes.

In this episode, Marcus takes us through his journey in fitness and how an injury changed his perspective. He also talks about his experience with James Fitzgerald, what's OPEX and how it has influenced him, how Functional Bodybuilding and ATS started and where it is going, how he uses breathing and cadences to stay aware during workouts, how he was able to branch out from being just an athlete to now being a business owner, gym owner, dad, and much more.

The Strong Coach  — Understanding Your Client's Needs w/ Aleks Rybchinskiy — 2
01:48:52

Aleks Rybchinskiy is a Neurosomatic Therapist with nearly a decade in the field working to heal clients by applying integrative and holistic therapies and methodologies mastered through accelerated completions of the prestigious practitioner programs at CHEK Institute in California, and Neurosomatic Educators Institute in Clearwater, FL.

Aleks works with clients from all ages to address weight loss, muscle gain, pain, physiological imbalances, TMJ, frozen shoulder, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel, headaches/migraines, visceral massage, cranial alignment, and many more. He also has a roster of clients all over the country, and is available for services and care outside of the Chicago & Austin area per schedule availability.

After spending the morning together, chatting and doing the podcast I hired Aleks to be my coach. If you’re in Austin, that’s great, as you can work with him in person. If you are not, I work with him remotely myself, so you can do the same.

In this episode, Aleks talks about how he began trusting himself as he started learning about what he’s interested in, how subconscious beliefs impact coaching and health, why typical SMART goals are only the surface and aren’t going to lead to long-term client satisfaction, how to live authentically and present as a coach, how to create compliance with your clients, how to create a network and work with other coaches and trainers, and more.

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Your Message is in Your Mess w/ Tony Grebmeier  - 93
01:05:53

Tony Grebmeier (@tonygrebmeier) is a partner and co-founder of ShipOffers and host of the Be Fulfilled podcast. Originally from Santa Cruz, California, Tony had begun a journey training for the Olympics in water polo before a knee surgery derailed his plan. During his rehabilitation, Tony would find himself addicted to pain medication and alcohol which would lead him down a dark path. Despite his eventual commercial success, he describes it as a process to hide his pain and addiction from the world. One fateful day, alone, and contemplating taking his own life, he received a phone call from a friend who would interrupt him and inadvertently change the course of his life.

Over the past 17 years, Tony and two childhood best friends have built an extremely profitable business, and Tony has used the resultant resources to spread a message of prosperity and fulfillment. He has coined the phrase, "Your Message Came From Your Mess". He leads his guidance with a singular question, "Are you willing?" Are you willing to leave "life's dumpster" behind and move forward towards what you truly want from this life. In this episode, Tony walks us through the "Smile Exercise", a part of his daily routine that facilitates his GROWTH (Gratitude, Reality, Open-mindedness, Willingness, Teachability, and ultimately his Happiness).

While honing his GROWTH philosophy, ShipOffers has become a Inc 5000 company for the past 4 years. Tony's life philosophy is centered around three fundamental principles: Chase the Wins, Study the Lessons, and Never Quit.

If you want to know more, reach out to Tony on Facebook, TheFulfilledLife.com or Tony@shipoffers.com

The Strong Coach  — Secrets to Overcoming Distractions and Being The Best Coach w/ Jeremy Thiel — 1
01:02:36

Jeremy Thiel has been successfully running his box, CrossFit Central for 13 years! As a box owner, he kept focus on challenging himself and those around him to consistent excellence.

Blessed with the heart of an athlete, mind of a leader, and an entrepreneurial spirit, Jeremy is not only effective in his approach to business, but also extremely gifted in motivating people to achieve their own goals. His intense drive and dedication to succeed in the life has laid the foundation for his innovative approach to leadership.

In this episode, Jeremy shares his story about getting into CrossFit early in 2005, and how he established himself early by attending the L1 seminar every 6 weeks. He also talks about his career as a competitor, and when his CNS hit a point that removed him from competition, and led him to take over a year off from training, until he found the Wim Hof Method.

Jeremy soon underwent a mindset shift that turned his gym into an explosive business. He explains that his awesome team of coaches is formed not through training, but on instilling in them ideas of mental growth and responsibility. He also talks about his strategies to continue his own learning in how the human body works, and much more.

Enjoy!

Barbell Shrugged - Mindset of a Champion w/ 2x UFC Champion Dominick Cruz -320
59:58

Dominick Cruz is an American mixed martial artist. He fights in the Ultimate Fighting Championship and is a two-time UFC Bantamweight Champion. Cruz was also the final bantamweight titleholder of World Extreme Cagefighting.

Known as one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in mixed martial arts, Cruz is noted for his unorthodox movement, powerful wrestling base, quick striking, and his tendency to attack from angles in a unique fashion unlike any other fighter on the UFC roster.

In this episode, Dom compares maintaining the body of a professional athlete to having a 40 hour/week job. Work needs to be done on the body to keep growing whether or not there are injuries. Dom stresses how importance is it to keeping up conditioning for fighters when they are injured, as they need to be ready to perform when the injury heals. He also discusses how he continues to get better as an athlete while enduring age and injury, and much more.

The Strong Coach  — Prologue
19:28

The Strong Coach is a show hosted by Mike Bledsoe, where he uncovers what truly separates the good from the great. A collection of interviews with experienced coaches, who share what sets them apart, abd advice for the aspiring coach, who wants to take their craft to the next level.

Being a trainer is great, but let’s not let it get confused with the role of a coach. A trainer has developed themselves in a valuable modality, while the coach is the steward of their client’s dreams. They will leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of their client’s reaching their true potential.

This show is the beginning of a movement. The next evolution for the fitness industry.

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Committed to Change w/ Taylor Dayne Loyd  — 91
01:03:32

Taylor Dayne Loyd is owner of TDLFIT and co-owner of Iron Greenhouse. She has been coaching boxing for 8 years. She is USA WEIGHTLIFTING Certified and has her Precision Nutrition Cert. Taylor competed in bodybuilding competitions, bikini and figure. She was a nationally qualified figure competitor. After 3 years of bodybuilding, she made her way into Crossfit.

Taylor is currently training at Crossfit Jaakarhu under Michael Winchester. She is a passionate athlete and coach with high expectations for her athletes. She grew up struggling with wanting to be really skinny. She was completely obsessed, and even went through a bad drug problem. After being in a rough spot, she decided one night to change her life around, ditched her dream to be skinny, and decided to show herself how strong she can really be.

Since 2007, she have been training, coaching, and competing in the fitness industry. She has been hands on training for 10 years, and takes a balanced approach to fitness combining intense and varied workouts with nutritional and dietary support. Taylor draws inspiration from many workout styles, including CrossFit, bootcamp, plyo, yoga, gymnastics, and fighting.

In this episode, Taylor talks about her journey in the fitness world, transitioning from bodybuilding to CrossFit, and her experience competing on a team at regionals and the games. Taylor gravitated towards CrossFit because of the sense of community. In bodybuilding, there was no sense of team or “us”, so the team centered environment of CrossFit instantly hooked her.

Enjoy!

Barbell Shrugged  — Nutrition, Hormones & Coaching w/ Laurie King  — 319
01:04:32

Laurie Christine King is a nutritionist, an athlete, and a coach. Laurie pursued a degree in Nutrition & Dietetics partly to remedy her own health issues, including an underactive thyroid and an eating disorder, and partly to put herself in a position to help others to never be in her situation.

Laurie has learned that women’s health is very underappreciated and misunderstood, and that most females don’t truly realize how hormonal birth control impacts them, and more importantly – that the period is a monthly feedback report on the current state of their health.

Through tons of research and years of working with others, Laurie learned a lot about how to build a happy & sustainable lifestyle, and how to eat in a way that supports gut health, thyroid health, mental health, happy adrenals, & a balanced sex hormone profile.

In this episode, Laurie walks shares how she works clients through the basics, and how she adds layers of complexity as the relationship develops. She also dives into why men should be proud of their morning wood, the 3 P’s of protecting hormones, why you should invest in quality food, and much more.

Enjoy!

The Bledsoe Show w/ Simon Scott: Burnt & Poisoned #77
01:38:41

This is a special episode, where Mike and a few friends describe their experience right after participating in a special ceremony in Sedona, AZ, which included frog medicine from the amazon called kambo.

Kambo is an extraction from an Amazonian frog, which some people think is poison, but it's a collection of peptides, which humans use for cleansing the body and spirit for thousands of years.

The episode is broken down into three back-to-back separate interviews. The first one is with Simon Scott, the kambo medicine practitioner and provider, and two more interviews with the participants in the ceremony, including previous guest, Mark England.

Enjoy!

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Sharpen The Axe w/ Seth Page - 90
01:20:56

Seth Spencer (@sethyoumfer) Page is owner and co-founder of Misfit Athletics, a competitive and affiliate programming and coaching for CrossFit Athletes - “The most well rounded programming for competitive athletes”.

MisFit Athletics began as five guys from the great city of Portland, Maine, who ended up at the same place, coming from very different paths, which is exactly how they were able to come together to create the program, coaching, media, apparel, and camps that exist today.

Seth began his fitness journey in college, by working out with friends and trying to become a personal trainer at a more traditional "globo-gym." He then became disinterested in that pursuit, switched careers choices, and became a Law Enforcement Officer in his early 20's.

In 2008, he was introduced to CrossFit for the first time at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy, and from the moment he completed his first workout, he knew he had found what he was previously looking for.

Today, Seth spends most of his time writing all the conditioning and skill work for Misfit Athletics programs, and works daily with well over a dozen high level athletes, and in communication with dozens more. When he’s not at home at his Portland affiliate CrossFit MF, he’s on the road coaching training camps at different affiliates around the world, or at a competition helping steer members of our squad to victory.

Enjoy!

Drew went on a quest to go from fit to fat to fit again in one year in order to better understand the weight-loss struggles of his clients and the online community. He embarked on this journey to prove to clients, website followers, and people across the country that it is possible to get back into shape.

In this episode, Drew shares his journey of going from Fit2Fat2Fit. He talks about the effects of gaining weight on his body, how he measured his blood biomarkers, and what issues arose, primarily with blood pressure and testosterone. Drew also spends time focusing on the psychological and emotional challenges associated with becoming overweight, and goes over the positive transformation he had simply by eating a healthy diet. He also dives into the ketogenic diet, ketosis, and more.

Enjoy!

Feed Me Fuel Me  — Keeping Perspective w/ Ryan Moody  — 88
01:21:06

Ryan Moody  is known around the world for his explosive athleticism. He has broken multiple world records with both Guinness and the World Records Academy in various jumping feats. Ryan is also creator of THEXWOD, a program dedicated to furthering an individuals’ ability to build explosive power and speed.

Before breaking those records, Ryan had lived in a state of near constant pain since his life altering bike accident at 8 years of age. He spent most of his young adult life searching for methods to help him overcome his pain, while vigilantly pursuing all of his dreams and goals.

Ryan has overcome debilitating injuries, life-threatening and infectious disease, broken limbs, multiple concussions, double knee surgery, and even paresis (partial loss / impairment of voluntary movement). He was told by doctors on 3 separate occasions that he would; "never walk, run, or play sports again." Professionals have even referred to him as a "Scientific Anomaly!"

In his pursuit of breaking multiple world records, Ryan developed a multitude of health and fitness programs on diverse platforms for all types of people. He travels the world speaking about “Strength Through Adversity”, “Prolonging Lifespan & Increasing Quality of Life”, and conducts training seminars that teach his health and fitness methodologies.

In this episode, Ryan shares how he coaches a wide range of athletes including children, olympians, and crossfitters to prioritize explosiveness in the hips. He takes the conversation further north and talks about the importance of mindset, especially when it comes to a heavy lift, using Michael Jordan’s “sick game” as an example of simply turning the mind off and playing.

Enjoy!

The Bledsoe Show w/ Brooke Ence: How I've Learned to Love Myself #72
01:07:39

Brooke Ence is an elite CrossFit athlete, a movie star, a social media star, and owner of ENCEwear, an apparel brand. Resilient, relentless and real, Brooke is a Utah native, who was raised by two hard-working and driven parents. She grew up doing gymnastics, softball, swimming and dance alongside her three older siblings.

Fast-forward to 2015, Brooke placed 1st in the CrossFit California Regionals, and went on to place 14th at the 2015 CrossFit Games in her rookie year. Since then, Brooke's built a following for her reputation as an elite competitor and her passion for inspiring others to achieve their goals.

No stranger to adversity, Brooke's returned to elite competition this year after undergoing spinal surgery in March 2017. Beyond the box, 2018 is set to be a big year for Brooke.

Building on her breakout appearances as an Amazon woman in the blockbuster Wonder Woman and Justice League films, she's already been nominated for a Shorty Award, launched her own apparel brand, ENCEwear, that nearly sold out its launch collection in 24 hours, and is partnering with Paleoethics to debut her own protein line.

In this episode, Brooke opens up about her childhood and overcoming insecurities. She takes us through her experience growing up LDS Mormon, how she got teased as a child for having bigger biceps than boys, how she overcame an injury both physically and mentally, and much more.

Enjoy!

Body of Knowledge  — Chapter 6  —  Abundance Survival

In chapter 6, we address adherence, one of the most critical, but least talked about topics in nutrition. Since many people struggle to adhere to eating plans, we focus on what it takes to actually stick to one.

Enjoy!

Real Chalk  — Nutrition 101: More Than Just The Basics  — 23
01:07:17

This is a special episode, where Yaya and Ryan take us down the nutrition rabbit hole. The Chalk crew debunks many of the methods that surround nutrition for athletes. Ryan talks about the importance of earning your carbs after a workout, and why you don’t get carbs until you’ve trained.

Ryan and Yaya also talk about the importance of getting in fats, explaining how dietary fat actually has no relation to body fat. They discuss the ins and outs of paleo and ketogenic diets, as well as the importance of eating food, and the potential repercussions of undernourishment.

Ryan also covers how to eat out, especially dealing with peer pressure, and how lying to people about why you are eating clean is always the best route. The best ways to eat healthy is to not have shitty food!

Enjoy!

Body of Knowledge  — Chapter 5  —  Biases Collide
01:00:53

In chapter 5, we dive headfirst into the strength vs cardiovascular training debate. Andy sets the stage by telling the story of Bob Hoffman’s showdown with Dr. Peter Karpovich over this divide in 1940. Following the aftermath, we address our own biases, contextualize the role of adaptation in human performance, and provide some general recommendations.

Andy and Kenny dive into the two, formerly opposing, schools of thought in the fitness world: strength training vs. cardiovascular training. Andy covers the evolution of strength training starting in 1861 with the coining of the “healthlift” or deadlift, as we know it today, and then they both explore the timeline of how scientists, who were pro-cardio, experienced a mindset shift and slowly understood the importance of adopting multiple modalities.

Enjoy!
