Rachel Balkovec (@rachel.balkovec), the first female Strength Coach in the MLB is on the show this week. Rachel is the opposite of an overnight success, and a great example of what happens when you believe in yourself, know your purpose and never give up on your dreams. As you will hear in this episode, getting a team to hire her for a role normally occupied by men was no easy feat, but nonetheless, Rachel is in a league of her own and she continues to break down barriers with the Astros Latin American conditioning program. In this episode, we get into coaching mentality and leading by example, working with new athletes, and why you should constantly be going outside of your comfort zone.

In this episode, I interview some of our Coaches from the Brute team; Nick Fowler (@thenickfowler), Adrian Conway (@adrianconway_), and the Vanilla Gorilla: Jacob Hutton (@jacobhutton1). We begin by dialing things back to when Brute Strength just started and how it has evolved into what it is today. Still deciding if Brute Strength is for you? Then tune in as our coaches break down some of the fundamentals that have helped many of our athletes reach the next level, and how you can apply it to your own programming. Whether you are trying to make it to The Games/ Regionals, or just trying to look better naked, Brute Strength has a program for you. We will be tackling some of the most common questions we get from the CrossFit and Weightlifting community regarding nutrition, strength work, fat loss, and programming. Enjoy the show!

Dr. Leslie Sherlin joins us on the show this week. We pick up right where things off on a previous episode with Michael Gervais. Leslie is a professional brain hacker and CEO/Co-founder of SenseLabs; the leading innovator in brain training. We’ll be getting into how the brain contributes to the way we think, feel, behave, and perform, as well as what happens in “high stakes” moments, Leslie’s new App “Sense Sleep”, and simple exercises that will boost your productivity. There’s so much more I can say about this episode but you’re better off just pressing play. Enjoy the show.

 

**Also side note, my audio cut out at the very end which is why it is a little abrupt.**
