The beginning of the year is hard. The thrill of the holidays are over, and the pooch of the holidays is likely decorating your waistline! Plus you’re probably trying to figure out what 2017 has in store for you and setting some goals. Well, we’ve been listening to some awesome podcasts and want to share some great tidbits that we’ve learned from them.
Chasing Excellence with Ben Bergeron: Episode 6 on Daily Discipline. Ben talks about the importance of habit over arbitrary resolutions. In other words, saying you want to lose 30 pounds is a great goal but it’s not concrete. Saying you’re going to work out every single day — and not wavering from that no matter what — is truly the way to lose weight or make change. Ben gave up sweets for 14 years just by saying he wasn’t going to eat them. Now, we don’t condone that type of insanity but we’re firm believers in habit and that what gets measured gets done. We highly recommend this episode.
Girls Gone WOD: Episode 184. Our favorite Coloradoans talk about this being the year of less. In other words, not biting off more than you can chew. Putting yourself first and spending money on experiences rather than things. Having less social media FOMO and less comparing yourself to others (which you should never do). And how your life is more than two side by side pictures.
Brute Strength Podcast: Episode 73. Mike interviews Tom Bilyeu, the CEO of Quest Nutrition (yes that Quest) and discusses the mindset for success and achieving mastery. Tom talks about his dedication to his word and in giving back and how his multiple failures turned him into the successful man he is today. It’s a must for any budding entrepreneur.

He owns CrossFit Alpha Dog which is just outside of Chicago IL, and as been on the competitive scene since he started CrossFit. Andrew and his team at CrossFit Alpha Dog qualified for team regionals in 2016, however Andrew opted to go individual as he saw it as potentially a once in a lifetime opportunity. With that being said, we're here to tell you that with this guys work ethic, he'll definitely be back for more in 2017!
