Episode Date
The Bledsoe Show: The Brand X Method: Fitness For Future Generations And Coaching Kids with Jeff and Mikki Martin - #121
01:02:54

In 2004, Jeff and Mikki Martin (@thebrandxmethod) imagined a better future for youth and began working toward that future by developing the original strength-and-conditioning program specifically designed for kids. Almost 15 years later, they continue to do what’s best for kids on a daily basis with The Brand X Method™, the world leader in youth fitness.

 

The Martins teach and speak all over the world; sit on the boards of fitness industry-leading organizations such as StandUp Kids and TeenLIFT; and are partnering with OPEX Fitness, the International Functional Fitness Federation, and Kerri Walsh’s p1440. They recently launched the first seminar in their new The Art of Growing Up Strong ™ live seminar series. The Brand X Method is currently represented worldwide by dozens of official Training Centers.

 

With decades of collective coaching experience between them in fitness and self-defense, the Martins have developed a method for optimal youth athletic development that combines state-of-the-art movement skill training with classic principles of strength training, physical literacy, and play. To deliver this program effectively to the most kids, the Martins created the cutting-edge Brand X Professional Youth Coach Certification designed to provide coaches with the knowledge, tools, and passion to build formidable humans.

 

In this episode we talk about what the lack of play is doing to physical literacy, the spectrum of kids fitness, the Brand X ethos, why you can’t express what you don’t possess, how to get into coaching kids, and much more.

 

Enjoy!

-Mike

Risking it All for a Simpler, Happier Life: Valentine Thomas on Why She Quit Her Job as a Lawyer to Become a Professional Free Diver, Spearfisher and Conservationist — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #2
01:16:43

Canadian-born Valentine Thomas (@valentinethomas) is a trained lawyer who worked in finance in London for six years before leaving it all to travel the world and spread the word about eating and fishing responsibly. She’s a Freediving Instructor with PADI, professional traveller, accomplished chef, TEDx speaker, entrepreneur and soon-to-be cookbook author.

 

Learn why a trained lawyer left her cushy job and life in London to live in her car before becoming a freediver, spearfisher, chef, and sustainable fishing and eating advocate. We discuss the risks and joys of working in the ocean; the challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated profession; how she got over a near-drowning and subsequent fear of the water by becoming a freediving instructor; tips on how to hunt, shop, and eat sustainably and ethically; and why it’s important to spend your time doing what you love (even if it’s risky).

 

Episode Breakdown:

 

4-16 Why Valentine quit her lucrative career to become a spearfisher and free diver, and what it takes to learn these challenging and dangerous skills

17–25: Why hunting is a primal, and deeply respectful, part of human nature, and how to get people to care more about ethical eating– whether you’re vegan, carnivore, or anywhere in between

25-36: We talk about the realities and challenges of her life (despite the glamorous Instagram account), including sleeping in her car, having a voice in a male-dominated world, and maintaining relationships when you’re never in one place

36–54: All about risks: how Valentine overcame near -drowning and a deathly fear of the water (including severe anxiety and agoraphobia) to enjoy a life spent almost entirely in the water; a discussion on the inherent risks and rewards of stepping outside the box of what’s expected of you and doing what truly makes you happy

54: Helpful tips on the best and worst fish to eat as well as how we can all make the best food choices for ourselves and the planet

Mathew Fraser (@mathewfras) is an American professional CrossFit Athlete. With a coined mantra of “Hard Work Pays Off” (HWPO), he has been a dominant force on the CrossFit Games stage since the beginning of his career defining a legacy in the sport.

In 2016, Fraser hit the competition floor and took 1st place, it was the first historic victory of his career, winning by the largest margin of victory in Games History. In 2017 and 2018 Fraser repeated not only his overall finish but each year has bested his own set record for winning by the larger margin of victory in Games History. In 2016 he led by 197 points, in 2017 he led by 216 points and in 2018 he led by 220 points. Fraser holds accolades in competitive sport before his time as reigning and defending Champ in CrossFit.

In 2008- 2009 he was a resident Athlete at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO.

Some Crossfit O.G. Talk W/ Blair Morrison and Ben Alderman — Real Chalk #62
01:39:40

I'm teaming up with two CrossFit OGs for this episode, comin' atcha from Wodapalooza weekend! As veterans of Regionals, the Games, podcasting in the fitness community, gym-owning, and everything in between, Blair (@morrison_blair) and Ben (@ironmile_ben) need no introduction—which is why they don't get one. We get right down to airing our unfiltered opinions on Sectionals, Ben Smith's post about event programming, Rich Froning's shoes, Jen Widerstrom, and why the CrossFit community brings together the most awesome people. 🤗

We go way back to the beginning of literally everything: our early gym days, competing, what our moms thought good nutrition looked like, training for the Olympics, starting podcasts, starting families, and what we used to dream about when we were kids. Flash forward to today: we're setting new goals, climbing new mountains, and living far, far away from Jersey. 🏔

Don't worry, it's not just the best shit-shooting session you've ever gotten to listen in to. It's also packed with useful tips for business-building, training safely, achieving epic things, and staying relevant even after you're not actively competing anymore. Plus, if you've ever wondered whether other CrossFitters are unimpressed with HQ's sweethearts, now is your chance to find out. 😉

 

Enjoy!

-Ryan

Jesse Elder: Curiosity, Intelligence, And The Difference Between Effort And Struggle — The Bledsoe Show #120
01:55:41

Jesse Elder’s (@jesseelderlive) own journey to self-mastery unfolded as he grew up in a family of 7. Being homeschooled, Jesse was given the gift by his parents of being largely self-directed in his education and spent hours exploring ideas that interested him. At the age of 9 Jesse was introduced to martial arts. Hitting the mats every week became a passion that would play a powerful role throughout Jesse’s life.

 

Coming out of his teenage years, Jesse learned that some things in life are too important to ignore and even though it might be uncomfortable, you must do what you think is right. This lesson helped give Jesse the courage to open his own school, which eventually transformed into him realizing that big ideas aren’t just for one person, but for anyone who desires more out of their life. The result of this realization is his website, jesseelder.com, which is a “vault” of mind videos at anyone's disposal.

 

In this episode we talk with Jesse about unconditional acceptance of self, developing a mindset of curiosity, the difference between effort and struggle, obeying the laws of nature, and, the all important question, last month, how many things did you do for the first time? You’ll find lots of truth in this episode from a man who manages to live life faster than me.

 

Enjoy!

-Mike

 

Episode Breakdown:

 

⚡️0-10: Jesse has tried a lot, here is what he’s not going to recommend to you (hint: he won’t allow you to live through him)

⚡️11-20: Why you need unconditional acceptance of yourself before you can serve others

⚡️21-30: Developing a mindset of curiosity leads to an expanded sense of intelligence and the difference between effort and struggle

⚡️31-40: Thought, feeling, action, repeat: The power of obeying the laws of nature

⚡️ 41-50: Memories and how we create the past every time we visit it

⚡️51-60: Blurring the lines of past, present, and future and the power of presence

⚡️61-70: Time is a narrative constructed by language, the importance of context, and the moment between the parentheses

⚡️71-80: The power of practicing courage and creating alignment in your life

⚡️81-90: Choosing to release resistance in your life

⚡️91-100: Why Jesse shaved his beard off

⚡️10-112: Last month, how many things did you do for the first time?

Devon Larratt: Why Pain Is Information And A Deep Dive Into A Sport You Know Nothing About — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #1
01:57:38

Devon Larratt (@devlarratt) is a world champion arm wrestler (in both arms) and received mainstream fame with his YouTube video defeating The Mountain Thor Bjornsson in an armwrestling match. He’s also a twenty-year veteran of the Canadian military, with time spent in an elite special forces unit, and one of the most dedicated athletes on the planet–with a healthy dose of humor, stoicism, and just plain genetic freakiness.

 

In this deep-dive interview with Devon, we talk about how he found the sport of armwrestling, how he came to dominate the sport–including his training, diet, mindset, and even psychological warfare tactics against his opponents. We also talk about his military service and how he is able to transfer the intensity and stress of that job to help him excel in his chosen sport, and in life in general. We also go on tangents including drugs and drug testing in armwrestling, how women are navigating the traditionally male-dominated sport, and pain and injury management— and how many arms Devon’s broken during his career.

 

Episode Highlights:

8 - 20 Intro to the sport of armwrestling

20 - 32 Devon talks about the physicality of the sport and gnarly injuries (both to himself and others)

32 - 54 Deep dive into training

54 – 1:06 Drug testing in armwrestling, and sports in general

1:06 – 1:10  Women in armwrestling

1:10 - 1:22  Devon's diet,  including a rabbit hole about some very weird experimental diets and a buffet-related eating injury

1:22 -1:34  Discussion of the mental game, and how to supremely mess with your opponents while still being respectful

1:34 -1:47 Devon discusses his military background and mindset, tells some actual war stories, and how his military career informs his approach to life and his career as a professional athlete

The Military Mindset: Balancing Work And Fitness W/ Chandler Smith — Real Chalk #61
01:04:14

Chandler Smith (@blacksmifff) is making a name for himself in the fitness world while holding it down in the Army—except for one time he got his finger chopped off. (You bet that story is included in this episode!) But he's fine, and crushing it on the Misfit team at Wodapalooza.

 

What does it take to be an athlete with a brand? We talk about the way the game has changed, being competitive while working a day job, and how sometimes you just need to fail until something works. Chandler gives us a glimpse into the influence Army training has had on his fitness career, and tells us what's next for him.

 

It may not always love us back (injuries, bad judges, the new Games qualification format) but we've got a lot of appreciation for this sport and all the crazy people we get to do it with. Whether you're a failed athlete in another sport, or you peaked and needed a new outlet, or you're just a savage addicted to the pain cave, there's room for you.

 

Now get out there and kill it!

-Ryan

 

1:00 How the game has changed since Fisch's day (failed athletes and real jobs)

5:15 Chandler's training/school balance, transitioning from wrestling to CrossFit

8:00 Adapting to limitations (Tarzan and Jane)

9:30 Fisch's military aspirations and some backstory

14:30 How military training influences CrossFit, but also the toll on your body

20:00 Injury repair and maintenance

27:00 If you can't win the Games, build a brand

36:00 You may not be able to imagine your life trajectory yet, so just go do stuff

37:00 The things Ryan does to get a workout in

40:30 Chandler chopped his finger off, but it just stoked the fire

45:30 What's next? Don't hold your breath for a Army x CrossFit collaboration

47:00 We're all weirdos here. Some of us are born with it, some of us have worked really hard.

54:30 Where to find Chandler

01:41:23

Conner Moore (@connerwanders) has spent years working with individuals and groups. The experience of reaching so many people led Conner to notice that everyone has an undeniable urge to connect to others with purpose and confidence in their contribution.

Sharing these experiences is Conner’s passion and he is incredibly grateful to work with others to take genuine ownership of their lives. Conner also created The Realness Podcast and Realness Retreat Costa Rica to further his ability to create connection and understanding for others.

The New Sportscenter of Crossfit w/ Armen Hammer — Real Chalk #60
01:29:27

Armen Hammer and I go way back to the early days of throwing barbells around. We've both been through some major transitions and seen a ton of changes happen in the CrossFit space. It's been a couple years, so we had a lot of catching up to do when we met up in Florida during Wodapalooza weekend.

 

After leaving the Wodcast Podcast, Armen worked for FloElite until they downsized. He saw an opportunity and set out to become the SportsCenter of CrossFit. You need the new format explained in layman's terms? Armen's your guy (there's another Waterworld reference here, so it's obviously important and if you haven't watched it by now, stop what you're doing and MAKE IT HAPPEN). And because he's not affiliated with CrossFit, he can curate his content however he likes, with complete unfiltered creative freedom. There's at least one perk of landing yourself on HQ's bad side.

 

We talk about social media, what the different platforms are ideal for, how Twitter should just die already, and what my MySpace looked like back in the day. Armen gives an update on what his fellow former Wodcast hosts are up to these days, and we take a trip down memory lane to the good old days with Ronnie Teasdale (he's selling sex cult memberships now). It gets a little weird from there, but what did you expect? This is a Real CHALK episode. 😜

 

-Ryan



0:00 🌴 Miami Beach is a real-life LMFAO music video, and the Ubers are garbage

3:45 🌴 Armen's Wodcast Podcast origins, how originality doesn't always translate into staying power

8:00 🌴 FloElite went sour, and now he does his own thing: YouTube, podcasts

9:00 🌴 Let's break it down: good content helps, but what drives traffic is tags (but you better already have an audience)

11:00 🌴 Armen is the middleman: he knows what's up with CrossFit and how to explain it to the layperson

21:00 🌴 The shelf life of great content: Instagram isn't google-able, YouTube is an index, and you should invest in a high-quality potato

30:00 🌴 How many subscribers is a lot?

33:00 🌴 The ad-pocalypse: you can see exactly how much money videos make you, and the big names have production teams

41:00 🌴 The early days of CrossFit (Ronnie Teasdale is selling sex cult memberships now, and Fisch doesn't hand out death threats so readily)

49:30 🌴 Don't call Fisch the CrossFit guy: how not to get pigeonholed

53:00 🌴 This is Armen's thing: YouTube lets you get paid to do ANYTHING

54:45 🌴 Weirdest thing you've ever searched on a porn site? And no, aliens didn't actually land in Ryan's childhood bedroom

1:01:30 🌴 What's Armen doing at Wodapalooza anyway, and how do you figure out who's up and coming these days?

1:06:30 🌴 What's up with the Wodcast guys? Scott hosts the Sisu Way, and Eddie's doing comedy and recording out of a bus

1:14:00 🌴 Let's talk about the reformatting: what's the "right" direction? Sports built from the ground up can't be controlled by a single entity—one-facet coverage is propaganda

1:18:30 🌴 Armen got kicked out of the Games—why keep being in a space where people don't like you?

1:21:00 🌴 It's just @ArmenHammerTV everywhere, but not really Twitter even though Donald Trump revived it. And armenhammer.tv on the internets.

01:36:31

Dr. Theresa Larson (@drtheresalarson) has become one of the healthcare and fitness world’s most sought after experts on movement health. Dr. Larson earned her doctorate in physical therapy from the University of Saint Augustine in San Diego, CA.

It’s all in your head: How to build a business, reset your mentality, and crush your limitations w/ Mike Bledsoe — Real Chalk #59
02:04:55

Are you ready for this?! It’s a crossover episode—with Mike Bledsoe, the OG host of Barbell Shrugged and the creator of Strong Coach. He's got a lot to say about, well, just about everything—from entrepreneurship strategies to open relationships and what the future of information looks like (spoiler alert: it features brain implants and the ability to communicate feelings). 🧠

 

Throughout the years Mike’s gained some crazy-valuable insight into the athlete mindset and how to successfully tackle obstacles by identifying what's holding you back from your goals. He explains what drives him (it's definitely not money) and talks about the process of developing Training Camp for the Soul and his newest endeavor, a mindset course for athletes that will be launching soon, so keep an eye out! 💪🏼

 

Mike has been into podcasts since way before they were cool, so he knows who's got it and who doesn't and what makes content worth producing. He also knows who the Hugh Hefner of podcasting is (did you know there was one? Surprise!) and that you probably shouldn't start your own. But don't turn off this episode yet—Mike still believes the best way to have a positive impact is through business, and there are still plenty of ways to do that. Plus, you wouldn't want to miss the stories we've got about insane DMs, the things gay guys are willing to do to me, and how we're all going to be robots in a few years. 🤖

 

It's Real CHALK on steroids—without, you know, any actual steroids. There aren't any shortcuts to the turtle shell, sorry fellas! 🐢

 

-Ryan



1:00 💥 The Barbell Shrugged story

8:30 💥 Don’t start a podcast. Make a YouTube channel.

16:30 💥 The entrepreneurship mentality: your 9-to-5 is a half day

22:00 💥 You lack discipline, and that's why you aren’t gonna look like Ryan Fischer even if you take steroids

24:00 💥 Dating apps. And the most ridiculous DM.

32:00 💥 Short-term and long-term goals for your business, and why collaboration is probably a good idea

42:00 💥 What’s your limit? Where are you setting the ceiling for yourself? How many more people could you be impacting?

44:00 💥 Legacy, self-sabotage, and how to reinvent yourself

50:30 💥 A day in the life of Ryan Fischer

58:45 💥 Two different ways to create change: do to become, or become to do. How do you be the person who does the thing?

1:09:00 💥 Finding a better way forward

1:14:00 💥 A success story, and the difference between information and coaching

1:21:00 💥 New big things! Mindset course for athletes

1:25:00 💥 Where Training Camp came from

1:32:00 💥 From disposable cameras to implantable neuronets (Elon Musk knows some shit), and an uncomfortable question: Are you producing value, or mindlessly consuming?

1:39:45 💥 Levels of labor: physical, technical, creative, interpersonal

1:43:00 💥 How is communication going to change, if we can actually understand someone else’s experience?

1:47:00 💥 Ryan Fischer is not actually a monster

1:53:00 💥 Oh yeah btw listen to Strong Coach #6 first + where to find Mike Bledsoe on the interwebs

Ajit Nawalkha — The Strong Coach #12
41:04

Ajit Nawalkha came from humble beginnings. Born to a middle-income family in Jaipur, Ajit grew up in an extended family of 23 other people under one roof. Space and money were scarce, and so as a little boy he dreamt of abundance.

 

Ajit made a decision to plant himself where he could grow. From starting as a trainee in a non-profit, Ajit has since held various roles including CEO of Mindvalley, Co-founder of Mindvalley Teach, Co-founder of Global Grit Institute and Co-founder of EPIC Businesses. He's also an author of the bestselling book, The Book of Coaching. Ajit has poured his heart into his upcoming book Live Big.

Come join us at www.thestrongcoach.com

 

-Mike

Episode Breakdown:

 

0-10-  What a good coach is and how getting people the results they want.  Them discovering possibilities and them discovering it for themselves. Coaching is not deep trauma therapy or consulting.  It’s guiding and building performance in people. Coaching is becoming mainstream.

 

11-20 Having to work on your craft and that’s why coaches don’t have clients. Also, coaches are looking for clients in the wrong place. Coaches are going to people but not the businesses that need them.  Go to where high performers are going. Am I good? Then where do I go to get them? Understanding your dialogue with sales.

 

21-30 Why we need more coaches and how the world is progressing because we have an abundance of education and communication.  Every human being needs a little support understanding the world today. The dangers of this and getting bad information from people.

 

31-40 Principles that make great group. 1. Understanding You. 2. Methodology and the way you create change for your clients 3.   Business and the training on what it takes to build a business.

 

41-50  If you know about something then you learn from the next thing and from different people. Understanding the counter perspective of the perspective you know.  Ex. Learn psychology if you are a health coach etc. Find more fun things for your clients to have a fun experience with you. Making learning a directed learning and not reactive learning.

Why You're Not Jacked: The Power of Enzymes w/ Bioptimizers - Real Chalk #58
01:16:32

Wade and Matt started their company after enzymes radically changed their lives. They knew the knowledge they were paying $1500 a month to obtain was too great to keep to themselves, so they found a way to spread it to the masses. The result is BiOptimizers: scientifically-backed enzyme supplements that flip the conventional understanding of "health" upside down.

 

We sit down to talk about our eating styles, our histories in the health and fitness sphere, a lot of nerdy sh*t about how enzymes work and your gut probably doesn’t, why so many people have adverse reactions to gluten and lactose, and how to eat a dozen Sidecar doughnuts in a sitting without dying. You might think you know some stuff about gut health, but these guys are here to break it down (pun intended) for you in ways that are easy to understand and a blast to listen to. Enjoy the ride!

 

1:00 🍩 What is an enzyme, and what does it do

2:45 🍩 Canola oil and heroin in the same sentence

5:00 🍩 Why the energy we ingest isn’t immediately accessible

7:20 🍩 Amino acids and the recovery process

9:15 🍩 100 grams of protein is...too much?

10:00 🍩 Ryan’s childhood diet staples

12:00 🍩 Wade’s story: Mr. Olympia to Mr. Marshmallow

16:30 🍩Why you need supplements to be your healthiest

17:20 🍩 Hydrochloric acid matters

20:20 🍩 The real advantage of intermittent fasting

21:30 🍩 Your commercial probiotic is a scam

27:30 🍩Milk really IS a bad choice

29:30 🍩 Gluten is a baseball, no wonder your body can’t digest it

31:15 🍩 Cronuts will change your life, and other fun donut facts

33:30 🍩 How to build muscle and burn fat at the same time, sort of

37:00 🍩 The most bang for your 1500 bucks: how BiOptimizers got started

38:30 🍩 How much protein do you really absorb from powder?

40:40 🍩 Things you didn’t want to know about “USDA certified organic” and gastrointestinal disease, and things you really do want to know about conditions enzymes can reverse

41:45 🍩 How CrossFit ruined women

44:00 🍩 Poop and your microbiome

48:00 🍩 Charles Poliquin, ethnicity and food responses, and epigenetics

51:50 🍩 What your blood work says about your diet

56:15 🍩 The alcohol hack you shouldn’t know

58:00 🍩 Did you know enzymes warp time?

58:50 🍩 The Batman enema (yep, you read that right)

1:01:20 🍩 Three things to do for better performance

1:02:30 🍩 Why a boring diet is the best diet

1:06:30 🍩 Discount code! And some guarantees. Because this stuff is legit.

1:08:00 🍩 Health is a spectrum. Don’t be dead.

Julien Pineau: The Difference Between A Trainer And A Coach — The Strong Coach #11
01:48:17

Julien Pineau is a Humanist & Movement Specialist and founder of StrongFit . Sports have been a part of Julien’s life since he was young and he’s been a state and national champion in a number of sports including soccer, swimming, and wrestling. As an adult, he really found something he liked with MMA and Jiu-Jitsu and spent time traveling the world to learn from the best in the industry.

 

The time spent Julien spent with the best made him want to learn more about sport and movement so that he could coach others. In 1993, he began his coaching career as a conditioning and grappling coach for the MMA gym where he trained and in 2008, he opened his own gym that focuses on strongman training. StrongFit was born and has evolved from a single gym to a full education program.

 

Julien’s brain is wired to see faulty patterns and visualize, in space, how people move. With his knack for diagnosing muscular and strength imbalances, he has developed his own system to identify what issues are and fight the root of the problem. He now travels the world delivering seminars to coaches who have the common goal of fixing people and ridding them of pain.

 

In 2018, Julien’s show on Barbell Shrugged was the most popular one! In this episode, we talk about apprenticeship to master yourself and better yourself, how to be in the present without distractions, understanding the nervous system and how it impacts your training, why looking at humans as machines have caused so much injury in the fitness industry, basing nutrition on what’s going to be happen in the next few hours rather than what happened in the past, and much more.

Ashley Bledsoe: Infidelity, Health, Double Standards, and How to Make Your Relationships Stronger — The Bledsoe Show #116
01:01:25

Ashley Bledsoe is not only Mike’s wife, she’s a relationships coach, who guides couples to create a powerful partnership.

 

Ashley also has a master’s degree in Sports and Recreation Management, and has been supporting, coaching and facilitating groups in the fitness industry for the past 10 years. However, over the past three years, she’s been delving into deeper healing work. She’s passionate about coaching female entrepreneurs to forge deeper connections to themselves, each other and creating unique and practical ways to bring that to their businesses.

 

Ashley is committed to guiding and supporting people to deeply know and love themselves, understanding that this is the way to create powerful partnerships. She came to this realization in her own marriage after eight years of being together. By working on her relationship with herself, she was able to strengthen her connection and bring her partnership to the next level.

 

In this episode, we talk about relationship and how to make yours stronger, how to have healthy relationships with yourself, partners and your body, what are the most common complaints of couples, how to handle infidelities, heal this past behavior, and let it go, the double standards of women getting away with cheating easier than men, how to see the best in your partner, and much more.

 

Enjoy!

- Mike

Business Strategy and Development with Dennis and Kelsey of HIITBurn — Real Chalk #57
01:22:21

It's hard to remember a time before Instagram, but Dennis (@denheen) and Kelsey (@thedailykelsey) built their online training business the old-fashioned way (through Facebook and email). They took a chance, came up with a catchy name, HIIT Burn (@hiitburn), and the rest is laid out in detail for you in this episode. In their case, big risks and some smart marketing led to big rewards—it's a classic tale of entrepreneurship gone right, and you know that's Real CHALK's brand of protein powder.

 

Picking a great name, staying true to your brand, ad campaigns, the next big social media platform, and why haters should make you happy—if it's business- or marketing-related, we cover it. We also talk about Kelsey's experience with anorexia and how she's using her journey to recovery to help her clients understand the role that mindset plays in living a healthy lifestyle. In an oversaturated market, it's authenticity that draws people to your brand, and it doesn't get more real than this.

 

We switch to more lighthearted topics from there, like how brushing your teeth can earn you thousands of dollars, getting ripped like Brad Pitt in Fight Club, and why I've been posting proposal videos on my Instagram (sorry, you'll have to listen to find out the answer to that one 😉). You just never know where this episode will go next—but I know where I'm going, and that's the Bahamas! DM or email me your podcast guest requests!

 

-Ryan

The Bitcoin of Plants: Everything About CBD and The New Farm Bill — Real Chalk #56
01:28:15

You might know a thing or two about CBD, but I guarantee you are not on the level with Mike Banhagel, the founder of Seven Points CBD. This guy can define words most people can't pronounce, and he explains CBD from plant to product in a way that's fun and accessible. He answers all the hot-topic questions (drug tests? CBD for law enforcement? FDA regulation? Vaping) and tells consumers what questions they need to be asking in order to find the best products in a saturated market.

 

This episode is chalk-full of random references (have you seen Waterworld?), all kinds of semi-related stories from Dartmouth grads selling back supports to dogs on the Fourth of July, weird analogies like supermarket orange juice, and some inappropriate jokes about football games. You'll probably learn, you'll definitely laugh, and you'll be able to talk your less-knowledgeable friends off the ledge when they start freaking out about getting popped. Dive in!

 

Happy New Year!

– Ryan

Jess Magic: Creating a Voice for Freedom — The Bledsoe Show #115
01:23:04

Jess Magic is a heARTist, a soul-stirring songstress, and a muse for today's generation of change-makers. More than a singer, Jess is a musical story-teller who creates compelling opportunities for people to interact with life from an open heart.

 

In a world where so many are longing for deeper levels of connection, authentic expression and intimacy, Jess weaves a "spell" of love with each song and story to reveal aspects of the human experience that crack open the hearts of those who are touched by her presence.

 

As an emcee (a.k.a. "Mistress of Ceremonies"), a speaker and a social entrepreneur, Jess Magic uses her voice and charismatic presence to break down barriers between artist and audience, giving people permission to drop the masks and be seen in their most raw, joyful and sincere expression.

 

In this episode, we talk about how to really feel freedom and fulfillment, how to have songversations, how to have the heart take information and really feel it, singing in public, feeling safe and free while getting over past fears, how to free your voice and build a connection, the ways Jess dealt with grief but didn’t stay in grief, and much more.

 

Enjoy!

 

-Mike

Jeff & Derz: The Way Ahead: What's Next For Feed Me Fuel Me in 2019  — Feed Me Fuel Me #119
37:21

Closing out 2018 on the highest of highs! Jeff (@iamjeffthornton) and Derz (@coachderz) are moving full steam ahead with Feed Me Fuel Me TV. Our time with the Shrugged Collective (@shruggedcollective) has come to an end. We've learned a ton of lessons and have created a space that is open for collaboration in the future. Don't be surprised if you catch us making cameos on the Collective in the future.

 

It would be a massive understatement to say that 2018 was enlightening. We made some extremely genuine relationships and had some of the deepest and dopest conversations ever! We broke the mold with topics on masculinity, vulnerability, embracing your story, and living a legacy worth leaving. We interviewed intuitive clairvoyants, life coaches, business consultants, professional athletes, fit pros, doctors, entrepreneurs, and people from so many epic walks of life. The common denominator is the willingness to be authentic and vulnerably deliver their stories in a way that struck massive chords with you, our tribe, our listeners.

 

This week, we reflect on the year that was: lessons learned and empowering moments. Huge thanks to The Shrugged Collective and sharing in this great journey of ours. We're forever grateful for the solid friendships we've created with them.

 

Moving into 2019, you can catch us on all things Feed Me Fuel Me. Keep up with us and the exciting people we connect with on our youtube channel and feedmefuelme.com.

 

We look forward to empowering your journey with so much more content as we cruise into the new year. Stay tuned for what's next in 2019!!

 

- Jeff (@iamjeffthornton) and Mycal (@coachderz)

Andrea Ager: Faith, Fitness, and Finding Your Passion — Real Chalk #55
01:23:22

Andrea Ager is passion personified. She attacks everything she does with her whole heart, whether it’s running track, competing in CrossFit, coaching her AgerBomb seminars, or sharing her faith. As a high-level athlete and an instructor, she knows it’s crucial to never stop learning about training and nutrition for herself so that she can better serve her clients. Andrea’s drive to never stop improving has inspired some crazy decisions, like leaving the CrossFit coaching staff to branch out on her own and moving halfway across the country to train for the Games with a team she’d never met (and get to know a certain guy better 😉).

 

Andrea’s a Colorado native now living in New York, but we used to train together in LA back in the early days of CrossFit so you know this episode includes some reminiscing about Regionals (RIP), references to He Who Should Not Be Named (that’s Dave Castro for you uneducated folk), and a discussion about the realness of competition depression and the danger of letting your performance as an athlete define who you are. We share some pros and cons of being your own boss, make fun of the “Instagram models” New York is overrun with, and explain the necessity of having several pursuits if you’re going to make it as an entrepreneur. I ask Andrea to talk about her experience with Faith RX’d, and she gives the Cliffs Notes version of how she met her husband (first year of marriage insights included! Listen up kids).

 

It’s a conversation between two old friends with a great vibe and a ton of helpful info for people interested in setting out on their own. It’s a little deep, a little silly, a little weird (just wait for the gummy bear analogy), and a lot awesome.

 

Enjoy!

Tero Isokauppila: Santa Sold Shrooms and Why Adaptogens Improve Workouts and Performance — The Bledsoe Show #114
01:15:55

Tero Isokauppila (@iamtero) is a a Finnish nomad turned into a fungi lovin’ foodpreneur. He is the president and founder of Four Sigmatic (@foursigmatic) — A mushroom and superfoods company that creates products to help you live a better and healthier life. Tero’s dream is to bring back the ancient mushroom wisdom to modern lifestyle.

 

In his native Finland, Tero grew up on his family’s centuries-old farm regularly foraging for mushrooms. He holds a degree in both chemistry and plant-based nutrition from Cornell University, and was awarded a Finnish innovation award for discovering that the Japanese matsutake mushroom also grows in Finland.

 

Tero was chosen as one of the world’s Top 50 Food Activists by the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, and has been featured in Vogue, Time, Forbes, Harper’s Bazaar, and more. He’s also the author of Healing Mushrooms: A Practical and Culinary Guide to Using Mushrooms for Whole Body Health.

 

In this episode, we talk about why mouth breathing means your disconnected, why Tero started Four Sigmatic in 2012 and what his inspiration was for introducing mushrooms and adaptogens to become an 8 figure business, why adaptogens give you leeway to navigate hard times in life, natural vs. synthetic and the pursuit of truth with science, and much more.

 

Enjoy!

-Mike

Kyle Mauch: Stop Trying to Discover Your Purpose. Start Living Life On Purpose  — Feed Me Fuel Me #118
01:25:18

This week Jeff and Derz sit down with the founder of Athlete's Brand (@athletesbrand), Kyle Mauch (@kylemauch) and discuss what is truly possible! One of the most common questions we are asked as a result of our discussions is how you go about discovering your purpose. When you ask Kyle, he'll tell you that you're asking the wrong question. To know your purpose is to know WHY you were put on this earth. That is a subjective question that is usually left to the interpretation of those that you've impacted. If you knew WHY you were born, there would be no deviation from your path. You would do those deeds, accomplish those goals, without obstacle and no distraction. We all know that is not reality. Seeking purpose can give you a sense of fulfillment. A feeling of impact. Feelings often misinterpreted as purpose.

That is what Kyle does now for professional athletes and high performers. He guides them in clarifying their legacy. He helps them discover what they care about most deeply and assists them in building their legacy around that cause. While their social capital and influence is at its peak, his mission is to maximize that notoriety and create a legacy that will outlast their athletic career. However, it took a chance conversation with a mentor to help Kyle reframe the mission of Athlete's Brand into something bigger than creating charitable apparel.

The question we should all be asking ourselves, which Kyle has answered for himself is this: How can I deliver the biggest impact in the short time that I have on this earth?

When it is all said and done, the answer to that question should get you out of bed in the morning. It will guide the direction of your life and serve you as you serve others. Drop what you're doing, and listen closely as Kyle outlines what it means to live life ON PURPOSE!

Drugs, Women, Murder, and CrossFit: The Story of Vincent Miceli — Real Chalk #54
01:04:13

From Wall Street cold calling to owning a successful gym in NYC with a detour into the nightclub scene along the way, Vincent Miceli’s career trajectory is all over the map and he has got some stories. I caught up with him at Solace to compare notes on gyms as businesses, how to create great programming, and what we would do differently if we could start all over.

 

Vincent talks about his own weight-loss journey (he lost almost 100 pounds in a year) and how he got into CrossFit (spoiler: it involved flipping a coin). We get real about what we look for in coaches, wonder where the insanely energetic people coaching SoulCycle classes come from, and break down what running a gym really looks like when you get down to the expenses. It’s a little bit of storytelling, a little bit of insight offering, a little bit of knowledge dropping, and a hell of a lot of fun. With Vincent’s “there is no ceiling” mentality, anything is possible—and this episode is proof of that.

 

Buckle up!

- Ryan

28:30 Give the people what they want: different classes for different interests

29:30 The good and the bad about Marcus Filly’s program, and why HIIBB works

31:00 Tendinosis and Active Life

34:00 Programming overlap: how TBB solves the problem—power to the people

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!

Bret Contreras: The Strength Coach Empowerment Model vs The Rehab Dependency Model — 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.

 

Bret currently trains figure competitors, writes programs for clients from all over the world, and consults for various professional sport teams. 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!

Unlearning Our Parents and Owning What We Actually Believe w/ Anat Peri — Feed Me Fuel Me #114
01:22:14

This week we sit down with Anat Peri, founder of Training Camp for the Soul and dive deep into the lessons we got from our parents.

In our discussion with Anat, we look at Mother and Father as teachers, and which of them are responsible for our perception of things such as vulnerability. The answers will shock you!

We’ll also get into how habits stem from emotion and manifest in how you show up in the world.

If your in a phase of self discovery and introspection, are seeking answers but don’t know what questions to ask, sit down and listen up! This episode is for you!

 

Enjoy!

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!

Finding Purpose in Prison w/ Eric Bassett  — Real Chalk #49
01:05:22

Eric Bassett is the brain behind EB30X, a 30-minute workout that changes lives. His brick-and-mortar gym is located in Illinois, but he trains people around the country and he won’t turn anyone down no matter what their physical limitations are. Everyone wants to train fit people, but Eric is working hard to bring fitness and health to the people who need it most. 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!

Losing A Father and Learning Forgive Doesn’t Mean Forget w/ Kory Cook  — Feed Me Fuel Me #112
01:18:23

Before Kory launched Korporate Wellness, he was tested numerous times. Life attempted to derail him or test his commitment in every way imaginable. The greatest test came by way of his father leaving him and his mother when bottom fell out of the economy. To say he's lived a life of constant transition since then would be an understatement.  

 

We caught up with Kory not long after he reconnected with his father. His outlook on their relationship will leave you with a breath of hope. 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!

Memoirs of My Ex-Girlfriend (A Model, Mom, & Entrepreneur) w/ Nikki Leonard  — Real Chalk #48
01:07:16

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*^.

 

- Ryan

P.S. Nikki has created a subscription based Fitness App called Nikki Rica Fit available worldwide on iTunes with 12 weeks worth of workouts as well as her newly developed 6 week Prenatal Program for expecting mothers. Most recently Nikki has re-introduced the Nikki Rica Fit Challenge which is a 6 week Transformation Challenge that includes a Workout Program & Meal Plan that is 100% Customized to the participant’s lifestyle, work schedule, goals & equipment that is accessible to them.

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.

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!

Building A Badass  — Big Brother & A Bigger Lesson  — 7
47:13

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.

 

To learn more about what Matt and I are doing, go to PsychedelicPerformance.com

Running the Sahara Desert and Scaling Everest w/ Charlie Engle  — Barbell Shrugged - 344
01:24:03

Charlie Engle is an ultramarathon runner, an adventure-seeker, a global explorer, and a philanthropist. He's also a recovering crack addict, a convicted felon, and a man driven to the edge of human endurance and achievement.

 

Charlie is the author of Running Man: A Memoir of Ultra-Endurance, a gripping, vivid, gritty, funny, unforgettable memoir chronicling his globe-spanning races, his record-breaking 4500-mile run across the Sahara Desert, his decade long struggle with addiction, and an unfortunate stint in federal prison for mortgage fraud.

 

In this episode, we talk about how Charlie went from doing crack cocaine to ultra marathons, whether running is a healthy addiction, how Charline ran two marathons a day for 111 straight days, the chronicles of starting a foundation with Matt Damon for clean drinking water, and more.

 

Note from Charlie: Please visit water.org to raise awareness for global water crisis.

 

Enjoy!

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.

 

Enjoy!

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,

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

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 ;)

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,

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.

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!

- Ryan

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!

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!

Every day is a new opportunity to have the perfect day, and even though we might fail every day, it is the perfect opportunity to implement to strategies and tweaks the next day.

 

In this episode, Ryan and Yaya dive into different “bio-hacks” or simple methods they have tested and implemented their our own lives. They also go into different morning routines, psychedelics, what your favorite top performers are taking daily, other conspiracy theories, and more.

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!

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.

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.
