Episode 45: Aggressive Creativity with Jason Kehl

00:0000:00

We all like to call climbing an art form, but very few of us take it to the high degree that Jason Kehl does.  From his haircut to his hold lines, his videos to his gym designs, Jason is anything but conventional, and that's exactly why he's so compelling.  I needed to know what fueled his creativity, wanted to dig into his process, and secretly just had to see his home wall.   He's been incredibly successful at rolling all of his interests into one brand... something I've tried hard to emulate, and I appreciate how through it all he's kept true to himself, his vision, and his integrity.  That's not an easy task.

Episode 43: Jonah Durham is a Not So Average Joe

00:0000:00

Jonah Durham has been very aptly described as "the sweetest kid ever".  You could also call him a crusher.  Either way, nobody that has spent time with Jonah will argue.  

During my recent 9 month roadtrip I ran into Jonah in several climbing areas.  We recorded a conversation while in Hueco Tanks this winter after I noticed an interesting contrast of sorts in Jonah's climbing.  A few weeks ago in Lander, Jonah sat down with me again for an update on how his own, much longer trip is going, and to discuss exactly what it is that makes him a Not So Average Joe.  

The music you hear in this episode is from the album "The World Is Ours" by our friend Ill Poetic.  "The World Is Ours" is celebrating it's 10 year anniversary this week.  You can hear it and more of Ill Poetic's newer releases at www.illpoetic.com

Episode 42: Common Sense Nutrition with Neely Quinn

00:0000:00

If there is a polar opposite of "nutrionist", I'm it.  I blank out immediately when talking the details of nutrition.  Not so with our guest today, Neely Quinn.  Neely is a nutritionist, climber, and host of the TrainingBeta podcast.  I've known Neely for some time, but had never talked nutrition with her.  She spoke at the recent ClimbStrong Coaching Conference, and I appreciated her simple take on how we should all be eating.  I know some of you are like me, and this conversation may prove a little simpler to digest.  Pun intended.

Episode 41: Board Meetings | Can Everyone Climb V10?

00:0000:00

Another example of the extras that we'll be giving to the patrons!  Nate and I noticed a trending topic online that was causing waves.  Jon Glassberg recently wrote a blog for La Sportiva titled "How To Climb V15".  He begins the article with this statement:  

"My hypothesis: Any climber with an athletic disposition, dedication, time, appropriate training and proper diet can climb V10. Climbing double digits is an attainable goal for any serious climber. You just have to want it badly enough and put in the training hours to get there."

We agree.  Here's why...

Episode 38: Board Meetings | Top 3 Training Trends We Disagree With

00:0000:00

Let's face it, there are some really bad ideas out there.  Myths that people cling to.  New methods of "training" that just aren't thought through.  Trends that are fun to jump into, but really aren't helping you.  

For this episode Nate and I sat down in the Red River Gorge last fall and discussed a few of these trends, particularly the ones we like the least.

Episode 37: Follow the Stoke with Dan Mirsky

00:0000:00

For this episode we sat down in the Red River Gorge with coach and trainer Dan Mirsky to talk about the redpoint process, but the conversation went elsewhere, and we uncovered something interesting.  What resulted is a conversation that essentially boils down to: Do what you're motivated and inspired to do, even if it doesn't make sense.  

You can find and work with Dan at The Front Training Room in Salt Lake City, or on the social medias at @danmirsky.  

You guys are killin the game with the iTunes reviews... keep em coming!  We're looking for 100 total in 2017!

Episode 36: Proven Plans with Blake Cash

00:0000:00

Today we're releasing our new Proven Plans... an option that lands between our simple eBooks and our completely customized plans.  These Proven Plans allow you to work with us in our mobile app, and they allow us to give you customizations and drills that aren't available in our eBooks.  The eBooks are extremely popular for good reason, but many of us need a more personal interaction and something a little more customized.  The Proven Plans answer that question.  

Our coach Blake Cash does most of the work with clients in the Proven Plan system.  Here, we discuss the plans, how they came about, where their value lies, and what we've learned from them.  

Learn more about our Proven Plan options HERE.
