This week I 'll be interviewing CrossFit’s very own, Cole Sager. Cole began his athletic career playing four years at the University of Washington as a running back from ’09-’12. In 2013 he began his CrossFit career, and the rest is history. Since then, Cole has finished 17th, 7th, and 5th overall at the CrossFit Games from 2014-2016, and if that pattern holds, he may very well find himself on the podium at the ’17 Games. In this episode we will be revisiting his 2016 Regionals performance and diving into the mindset and preparation that got him to the level that we see him today. Join us as we discuss discipline, nutrition, and the ongoing search for the world’s best cinnamon roll! Enjoy the show.
