Today’s guest is Michaela North — head women’s coach at Brute Body for Women, a mother of three (with another one on the way), and a member of the 2017 Affiliate Cup Championship team the Wasatch Brutes. On this show, we talk about how Michaela is able to do everything she does while raising her family. She tells the story of narrowly missing the Crossfit Games in 2016 by one spot, and shares all about her experiences training and competing with the Wasatch Brutes. My respect for Michaela only increased after hearing her perspective on some of the challenges that she’s overcome in her life, and I know you’ll be inspired by it too. Enjoy the show!
