Bringing Mental Toughness to Every Obstacle

Dawn Fletcher is a long time friend of mine and owner of Fletcher Fitness & MentalityWOD.com. Dawn works with athletes in a number of sports mentally and physically to help them get the results they want.

She was named “1 of the Top 30 Most Influential Health Bloggers” and has been a great member of the Compete community since we first connected at the 2011 CrossFit Games.

Dawn’s story of finding her purpose in the blend of psychology and physical performance is so interesting. We talk about mental toughness from the perspective of being mentally tough as an athlete and being mentally tough every day. Dawn offers great advice for facing anything that comes your way.
