We share stories, framework and discuss how the mind may be the most important indicator of your success in sports, dieting, or really any accomplishment in life that involves physicality (and even those that don’t).
Following (and before) Conor McGregor’s loss at UFC 196, the entire “active” world came out with strong opinions on the idea of “movement coaches,” with hate and praise slung and thrown around at both ends of the spectrum. The bad part, though, was the misinformation spewed by many in the media, and we hope to set it straight. After all, we’ve been functional movement advocates for years… Find out what we think and what our definition is, and what it means for you.
We discuss the framework of mental coaching for sport and the analytical part of sport: from the high levels to involving children. We also discuss ways we might bring physicality, in an inclusive way, back to elementary school-middle school aged kids. And of course, the convo kicks off with a little coffee talk (snobs…)
In what turns out to be two podcasts of musings over various subjects, we keep returning to the power of the mind and when it intersects with reality. What realities are too strong to overcome… if any?
Sharing personal experiences is a powerful way to communicate: it’s never something we’ve shied away from on this show. In today’s episode, we hit this idea from a different light, using Jack Kornfield’s book “A Path with Heart” as a reference point. That serves as the deep-thinking counterbalance to the sensible strength training and weight loss advice we get into later in the show (which is light and “practical”).
We’re back this week with two new episodes and the first show of 2016 (coming at the end of the week!).
In this episode, recorded mid-December 2015, we discuss real life self defense principles & Conor McGregor’s victory, which eventually leads into a discussion on the diversification of strength and conditioning in sports, and life in general. From the forward thinking coaches out there to highly trained experts in breathing, movement and more, there’s a valuable diversity- now more than ever- in what’s available to you to be your healthiest best self. Tune in as we dissect it.
We are on a mini hiatus (continuing education trips across the globe for Mark, while Froy is busy training and nurturing a successful, growing business), but we never want to leave you hanging! So, flex your “Netflix muscle” and enjoy an onslaught of new episodes… all at once! Space em’ out or binge on them: the choice is yours.
We recorded this episode in Froy’s apartment, originally in September ’15, on a whim. I can’t tell you exactly what the idea was, but it turned into an interesting discussion on health journalism, balance and more.
