Sean and Jeremy own a company called Active Life RX that focuses on just that - Lasting Results.  I don't know if I would say my mind was blown by the information I've learned from Sean and Jeremy because these are things I've suspected for years but not been able to articulate or wrap my head around completely.  
 
The discussion revolves around a central problem:  We spend way too much damn time on mobility work and injury prevention... period.  If this made our issues go away that would be one thing, but they don't.  We spend 30-60 minutes every day just getting ready to train.  That is not ok.  Why aren't we having lasting results?
 
In the interview, they discuss a whole new way of looking at mobility work or at least the traditional sense of it.  We also talk about how this translates into improved performance.

I grew up watching LSU football and being one of those "overly passionate" SEC fans.  So I heard Coach Moffitt's war cry on hype videos all growing up.  It wasn't until just last year that I got a chance to work with him and the rest of his strength and conditioning staff.  
 
He is one of the most studied men I've ever met in any discipline, and especially sports performance.  He is also one of the most caring men I've met when it comes to his athletes.  The combination of these two creates the highest "buy-in" factor I've ever seen in a weight room, which many coaches know is the most important aspect of coaching.  
 
Obviously we go into some specifics about the LSU program, about sports performance, etc.  We also talk about how to become a better motivator and why that is important.  You are going to love this show.

Krissy Mae Cagney has quickly become one of my closest friends.  Overcame drug addiction, wrote two super successful nutrition books (Flexible Dieting 1.0 and 2.0), bodybuilder, powerlifter, and just an inspiring, authentic woman all-around.  
 
Krissy is a physical specimen in every sense of the word.  Using the techniques she shares on the podcast, she has an incredible body.  The tattoos aren't part of the nutrition plan, but they are gorgeous.  
 
We talk about how to use flexible dieting to achieve optimal results in body composition as well as performance.  We also discuss how that correlates to a balanced, happy lifestyle.

Tommy Hackenbruck has been one of my best friends and mentors over the last several years and it is only fitting that our very first podcast be with the biggest BRUTE in the game. We have won the Crossfit Games together twice.  We have done Sealfit together.  We have gone through a lot.  
 
The most impressive thing about Tommy is his mental game.  The best example I can give of how tough this dude is is my experience with him at Sealfit.  There are future Navy Seals in every Kokoro camp class.  There were nearly 10 Games athletes.  He blew everyone out of the water.  Was he in pain?  Yes.  Did he show it?  Not in the least. 
 
I finally got to sit down on camera with him and ask him exactly what led to his mental toughness. We talked about steroid use in Crossfit and his experience at the Games as an individual vs. a team.
