S1EP7: John Berardi

Nutrition is a huge part of the conversation for us, both personally and professionally. We are constantly hearing about fad diets and calorie counting. Our basic philosophy is to EAT REAL FOOD. Even still, we are always exploring how nutrition affects our overall health and fitness -what we eat, when we eat, the quality of the ingredients, even the types of oils we use. We are excited about this conversation with John Berardi - he is a writer, coach, researcher, athlete, and the...


S1EP6: Rebecca Rusch

Rebecca Rusch has famously been dubbed "The Queen of Pain" and is one of the toughest athletes in the world. Her litany of accomplishments literally defies belief. She's a seven-time World Champion in multiple sports, four-time Leadville 100 MTB Champion, the first person to ride the entire length of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, and the list goes on. We asked Rebecca on to talk about fear. In thinking about raising kids, as well as training high-performance athletes, we've developed a...


S1EP5: Harry Marra

Coach Harry Marra is one of the world's foremost experts on developing well-rounded athletes. He is a legend in the world of track and field and cemented his reputation as one of the all-time greats at the 2016 Rio Olympics when he coached American Ashton Eaton to his second Olympic gold medal in the decathlon - securing back-to-back wins in London and Rio. But that was just part of the story in Rio, because he also coached Ashton Eaton's wife, Brianne Theissen-Eaton to an Olympic bronze...

Eric Cressey, the president and co-founder of Cressey Sports Performance, is a trainer famous for his extensive work with baseball players.

S1EP2: Dr. Jeremy Koenig

Dr. Jeremy Koenig is the Founder and CEO of Athletigen, a sports genetics company with a mission to educate and empower the community with their personal genetic information. This interview makes a great Part 2 to the last episode with Dr. Richard Lee.

Juliet and Kelly have had their DNA analyzed with Athletigen and we get into...


S1EP1: Dr. Richard Lee

Dr. Lee is a pioneer in using cutting-edge technology to provide preventative healthcare. In this conversation we cover the science of genetics, the current state of research, where it's helpful, where it's not helpful, what we all need to know, and what we all need to watch out for. Juliet and Kelly have both had their DNA analyzed and seen Dr. Lee as patients, so we are able to get into specific examples of what can be learned and acted on, and whether they found it useful.
