Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

Star volleyball player Gabby Reece’s is one half of a power couple with husband Laird Hamilton. The wisdom she’s gained as a public figure, a pro & Olympic athlete, a sports model, a mother, and as partner to an alpha guy like Laird caused our podcast team to nickname her “Yoda.” Gabby has an unexpected message of accepting and nurturing people as they are and how they choose to define their objectives. She may have even shifted Joe’s paradigm, but we doubt it, yet there’s a good chance she’ll adjust yours.

Although we would have loved interviewing her husband Laird too, serendipity had him rescuing Hawaiians from floods brought on by torrential rainfall and that meant we received “Yoda’s” wisdom uncut.


Lessons:
1. It can be a show of strength to let someone else take the lead.

2. Your kids are not hearing you or listening to you, but you can be certain that they’re watching you.

3. Another interpretation of “the meek shall inherit the earth” is that they all had swords, they just didn’t unsheath them.

The Ice Man, Wim Hof, is crazy for life. He embodies Spartan values: becoming comfortable being uncomfortable, changing your point of reference and finding your true north with passion. Not surprisingly, he shares Joe’s enthusiasm for cold showers, though he suggests to start with a 30 second one. His methods are unique even as his message is conventional, still it cannot be stressed enough: Nature is our ultimate mentor. If this is the first time you’re hearing Wim Hof’s theories, prepare for a rush.

Lessons:
1. Real comfort is achieved through gradual exposure to the elements and letting the body adapt.

2. Breathe fully and believe you are the master of yourself.

3. You need to optimize both your body and mind to reach your true potential. One doesn’t work effectively without the other.
