His book Wintality teaches the keys to unlocking the success in your DNA. In this conversation, we go into the ‘wintality’ mindset and how you can use that to win in your own life.

Baylor’s story of playing football at Baylor to becoming a triathlete is one full of inspiration. The actions he took to transform his life into one that’s more positive and motivating to others are actions that we can all take.
