On one of my favorite episodes of the Brute Strength Podcast to date, I’m joined by Mark England, the owner of Procabulary. Mark is on a mission to rewire the way people speak — outwardly as well as inwardly. We go into depth about what he calls conflict language, negations, and soft talk, how to identify those and how to translate them into more positive and effective communication, whether it be to someone else or to yourself. I had some huge aha moments during our conversation and I know you will too. Enjoy the show!

This week on the Brute Strength Podcast, I’m joined by Kara Webb (@karawebb1), one of the fittest woman in the world. Kara just took second place in the 2017 Crossfit Games — in the closest finish in the history of the games. Kara once told me, “In my eyes, my greatest achievements this year have nothing to do with my placings. That was just a cool reflection of all the hard work.” On this show, we talk about how her attitude has not only benefitted her entire life but how it led to the best performance of her life. She shares her challenges over the past year, what changed as a result of those challenges, and all the details about her amazing performances at the games this year. Enjoy the show!

This week I’m back again with Brute Strength coach Adrian Conway (@adrianconway). Adrian is my teammate, coworker, and good friend, and he has just become one of two people to win the Affiliate Cup champion three times. In this conversation we talk about team training throughout the year, discussions before, during, and after the event, and everything else that went into the Wasatch Brutes winning the Affiliate Cup at the 2017 Reebok Crossfit Games. Adrian is an inspiring coach and a powerful leader. He shares that this may be the last time he participates in the Affiliate Cup, so you definitely won’t want to miss the wisdom he shares about forming a team, surrounding yourself with people you like, and training to win. Enjoy the show!
