Adam Feit has been teaching people how to win from an early age. As an adult, that mentality carried over into his career as he became a coach and worked with athletes at all levels, including the NFL’s Carolina Panthers and college football teams like the University of Louisville.

 

Even though he was living what many, including Adam, considered the dream, something clicked that it was time for change. That’s when he decided to open a sports performance center for kids.

 

This week, the coach, athlete and entrepreneur joins our host Michael Cazayoux on the Brute Strength Podcast to teach you the power of starting small and how small habits can lead to big results.

 

Topics:

 

01:15 – Childhood

12:00 – Joe Kenn and The Tier System

16:13 – Working in the NFL

21:05 – Finding Precision Nutrition

Students, you’re going to want to get your notebooks ready because Brent “The Professor” Fikowski is taking us to school on the Brute Podcast this week.

 

Brent is a three-time CrossFit Games athlete, placing second in the 2017 Games, and after this episode, you’ll understand how he’s remained one of the sport’s top four male athletes since 2016.  

 

Even though Brent is “The Professor,” he brings a mindset to the game that can’t be taught—the mindset of a competitor. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t had his ups and downs in the sport.


Listen to this week’s episode to learn more about what you can do to emulate that mindset, what it’s like to compete against the fittest athletes in the world and how he almost left CrossFit in 2015.

01:00 – Sanctioned events

06:20 – Early competitive career

26:50 – Starting CrossFit

35:20 – Transformation year

43:20 – First experience at the CrossFit Games
