Unbroken Podcast 017: Mallory Lawson

I am such a fan of Mallory.  She is an amazing athlete and a fun person. She has always been an athlete.  She started gymnastics at the age of 2 and has not looked back in regards to fitness.
Mallory 1
We talk about fitness, playing sports, and starting CrossFit.  It was fun to talk about Regionals and going to the CrossFit Games as a member of the CrossFit 417 team. We discuss eating and nutrition and how that affected her in college and now as a CrossFit athlete.

Unbroken Podcast 016: Jenn Crosby

I had the honor to interview my wife for this podcast. Not only is she a very good athlete in her own respect, but she has to put up with me and all my shenanigans.
We talk about her fitness background.  How she went from a very competitive skater and figure skater to running marathons to coaching CrossFit. We also talk about how hard it was for her living with someone who was depressed and eating all the time.  It was really hard for her to see me at 348 pounds, wasting my life away playing video games and eating all the time.
Jenn 2
She is the love of my life.  The nicest person you will ever meet.  She loves coaching and helping other people.  I hope you enjoy her podcast.  You can follow her on instagram at @strongmomrx

Unbroken Podcast 015: Ryan Reid

Ryan is a good friend of mine.  We have been working out together for almost two years.  I have managed to say a lot of dumb stuff around him, and he still keeps me as a friend!  I tell the story of my first time talking to him and his wife.  I am really surprised he even talked to me after!
Ryan 1
Ryan is a recruiter for the National Guard, and I really wanted to talk to him regarding fitness in the military.  Boot camp has always been something that has really intimidated me.  I now know it is bad but not the terrible nightmare I always thought it was. Everyone comes out of basic training in amazing shape. We get to talk about what people do to stay fit after basic training, especially when you are just reserves. A lot of people turn to CrossFit and that is why we see a lot of people from the military involved with CrossFit.

Boy, can he eat.  But, he also knows a lot about fitness and weight loss.  Randy was athletic growing up and played football in college at Missouri State.  In 2010, he won a body transformation contest through Men’s Health. To celebrate, he did a food challenge with his friend and won $500.  He realized he was really good at this food eating thing and had been making videos of his challenges ever since.

Unbroken Podcast 013: Sarah Mae Skinner

Sarah Mae was your typical “head to the gym and run on the treadmill and work on abs after” gym goer, until a few of the guys at the gym talked her into to lifting some weights.  She has not looked back since.

Sarah Mae was so fun to talk to, and I loved asking questions about the power lifting and bodybuilding world.  That is something I know a little about, but it was really cool talking to someone who has been so involved and good at both.  I also loved how she talked about the people she surrounded herself with to get to where she is now.

Make sure you follow her on social media, because she is going places.  Hope you enjoy her podcast! It was a lot of fun talking to her at Panera Bread while she was visiting family for the weekend.

Unbroken Podcast 011: Joe Williams

Joe Williams is a good friend of mine and has been one of my coaches and mentors for almost 3 years. I was very excited to talk to him and had a lot of fun recording this episode.

We talk about what got him started on CrossFit after not finding the results he read about in fitness magazines and videos he watched on the Internet. The opportunity to open his own gym and start coaching transitioned to being a big part of Power and Grace Performance and working with some of the best CrossFitters and weightlifters in the world.

Unbroken Podcast 010: Jessica Griffith


For today’s podcast, I interviewed Jessica Griffith. I met Jessica two years ago when she competed in her first ever CrossFit competition.  She cracked me up back in the athlete staging area, and we became friends through the awesome CrossFit community.
I have watched Jessica grow into an amazing athlete.  She went from her first competition two years ago to competing in the CrossFit Games this year on a team.  You can tell she loves this sport and how it has changed her physically and mentally.
We talk about going to the dark place in a workout and how she goes to that place every workout at this point in her career. She saw what other Games athletes do to be the best, and it has driven her to work just as hard.
She has several awesome sponsors she wanted to give a shout out to.  Check them out!  No Bull, Driven Nutrition, Axom PerformanceCompete Everyday and Forged Clothing.

Unbroken Podcast 009: Dylan Kelly and Patrick “Paddy” O’Hara

A few weeks ago, I was able to drive up to Columbia, Missouri and meet with two amazing athletes Dylan Kelly and Patrick “Paddy” O’Hara.
Dylan played sports growing up and found a passion for lifting weights. He found CrossFit and realized that it was something he wanted to keep doing. He also realized it was something he was very good at. He has competed in Regionals twice now and loves to throw heavy weight around.
Paddy started playing soccer when he was four and continued all the way through high school. He tried kicking a football after high school with his brother and found a new talent. They made a video and sent it to several colleges. Oklahoma University picked him up, and he was their kicker for 4 years. Paddy is a GRID athlete for the Phoenix Rise and is known as a utility member of the team. He can cycle the barbell really fast and is good at jumping over stuff.
I had a lot of fun talking to these guys. You can follow them at any of
these places!

Unbroken Podcast 008: Mekenzie Riley

I had the privilege to drive to Peoria, IL to meet Mekenzie Riley at CrossFit 309 and hangout and talk fitness. I met Mekenzie a year ago at a competition hosted in Ozark, Missouri called Ozark Mountain Shredfest, and she was awesome. She added me as a friend on Facebook and offered to help me with my quest to lose weight. We have stayed friends ever since.

Mekenzie is a lifestyle coach and registered dietitian. She has her own business as well, Real Results Nutrition Consulting.  Not only does she talk the talk, but she walks the walk.  She is an amazing CrossFit athlete and competes with the best. She placed 3rd in her district in the last CrossFit Games Open.

e talk about how she started CrossFit and how it helped her change the way she approached her own nutrition. Now, she wants to share that knowledge with others. Her team has some big plans for this next Games season. We talk training and what it is like to work together as a team.

So much fun!  Glad I got to do it and look forward to doing it again!
