So if you've listened to the show over the past few months you know I had a midlife crisis and decided to deadlift 400 pounds by the time I turned 40 in December. It turned out to be a stupid decision because instead of dealifting 400 pounds, I ended up spending hours laying on the floor with a hurt back. In researching rehab programs, I discovered GMB Fitness after seeing a lot of chatter about them on twitter. Their focus is on mindfulness, listening to your body and exploring movements through various work flows. The first paragraph on their website caught my attention the most:

“Lately, the word “fitness” has been perverted to mean shaming yourself into doing things you hate to impress people you don’t like with a body that looks good but is too beat-up and tired to do anything fun.”

Ryan was a cool interview and we had a good discussion on what it means to get fit today and what our motivations are for hitting the gym. We talk about stripping away the equipment and getting back to the bare essentials in our bare feet.

This week, the AMAZING story of wounded Navy veteran Nico Maroulis who literally went from wheelchair to the top of the world. Her personal drive and determination to physically push through injuries is an inspiration to anyone facing hardship. In this episode we discuss the hallmark injuries of the War on Terror, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and the complicated process of recovery. We discuss her experiences riding a hand cycle across the continental US and her trip to Nepal to climb Mt. Lobuche (situated next to Everest). She was featured in the documentary High Ground and Two Shining Seas. She is a founding member of Summit IDG, an organization which provides motivation and training to veterans and first responders injured on duty to regain peak performance and reach personal summits of achievement. We had a GREAT discussion and this is one of my favorite episodes! Hope you enjoy!

Tom Bell is a student archaeologist who volunteered with his girlfriend to work at a site called Star Carr in England. He happened to see a small stone about the size and shape of a guitar pick and on further examination, he uncovered a 12,000 year old piece of art... the oldest of it's kind! Who owned it? What were the people like? We have a good talk about the science of archaeology and wax philosophical about time and what our short lives mean in the vastness of human existence.
