S3E26: Ryan Schultz: ROMWOD, KillCliff, and Finding Success In Your Roots

April 10, 2019 No Comments

To be successful as an adult, it’s important to go all the way back to your roots and remember what’s at your core. That’s a key point from this week’s guest, entrepreneur Ryan Schultz. Schultz has been involved with numerous brands and projects on the rise, including ROMWOD, or Range of Motion Workout of the Day. Good business practices are based on good principles, Schultz says. And those often stem from the values you learned as…

We Beats Me

April 8, 2019 No Comments

As the Texas Tech men’s basketball team takes to the court tonight against Virginia in the NCAA men’s championship, all eyes will be a perceived ragtag bunch of players who have united for the school’s historic run. In fact, of the five starting players for Tech, none were a coveted 5-star recruit coming out of high school nor even an all-star level 4-star recruit. Texas Tech starting 5 Tariq Owens – 185th in 2014 3⭐️Jarrett Culver…

S3E25: Be Thankful You’re Not Ready Yet

April 7, 2019 No Comments

I know what it’s like to be frustrated by the fact that you aren’t where you thought you’d be by now. We start after a goal with big dreams in our eyes, and 1, 2, or 5 years down the road, our current reality isn’t what we’d expected – and we still have farther to go. Be glad for the delay. If you’d gotten your wish from the start, it could’ve ruined your entire journey. Hear…

Why Baseball is the Perfect Teacher of How to Be Successful in Life

April 4, 2019 No Comments

Spring is marked not by the changing of the seasons and blooming of the flowers, but by the cry “Play Ball” as Opening Day signals the start of a new baseball season. Fans filled with hope pile into stadiums around the country to enjoy America’s past time and watch millionaires hit 90mph fastballs into the stands. Millions more climb onto wooden bleachers to cheer on their own little league slugger as he/she takes their Saturday afternoon…

S3E24: Geoff Woods, The ONE Thing

April 3, 2019 No Comments

Sometimes you need to take a step back and look at the habits you have. Do they keep you on the right track? Are they taking you in a direction you don’t want to go? Are they allowing you to stagnate, instead of moving forward? After all, it’s the habits we practice that shape the futures we have. So, it’s critical to envision where you want to be, and find ways of moving toward that in…

S3E23: At Some Point, You Have to Just Do It

March 31, 2019 No Comments

It took two-plus years but I finally started writing. Well, I’ve been writing on this blog for years. I’ve written our newsletter to you for years. But I’d been avoiding the serious, deep work of writing my first book for over two years. I’d tried to start (more than once) and stopped. I wrote outline…after outline…after outline. I have sketches of chapter ideas, and I have a full page of iPhone notes with proposed book titles….

S3E22: Jenny Dean, Workout With Works Out for You

March 27, 2019 No Comments

It’s been a long and winding road for this week’s guest to get where she is today. After years a special education teacher, Jenny Dean decided it was time for her to have kids. Following the birth of her second child, her husband was traveling nearly every day for work. She found herself feeling unfulfilled and wanting more from her own life. She took a yoga class and was immediately hooked. Now, seven years later, she’s…

S3E21: Why Your Disadvantages May Be Why You Win

March 24, 2019 No Comments

“__________ is winning because they have more talent or advantages than I do.” How many times have we heard that excuse from someone? Or from ourselves? Learn why the disadvantages you *think* are holding you back may actually end up creating the advantages and skills that help you win – but only if you’re competing every day.

Why The Open Is More Important Than the CrossFit Games

March 21, 2019 No Comments

I still remember my first CrossFit Games Open in 2011. I’d only been actively CrossFitting for six months when I was introduced to this new worldwide competition. I loved it. That is, until I got hit in the face with a movement I couldn’t do well (overhead squats). Like most every one of you reading this have done, I redid that workout 2-3 more times, just trying to get another rep in. I was frustrated at…
