 6 Fold Upgrade | Episode 10 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2463

Now for the good news. I believe this transitional period of time will bring us a beautiful upgrade. And the upgrade is going to be 6 fold: Mental, Physical, Relationship, Craft, Resource Management, and Consciousness. Mental The first thing that we’re going to upgrade is our mindset. Our thought process. Not what we think, but how we think. This time in our lives is creating space for our brains to rewire themselves by helping us notice our true priorities and how they serves us. What we believed used to be important, will slowly fall to the waste side and no longer be part of the mental model we use to make decisions. Physical The physical will be in relationship to how we move and how we act. In the Fitness space, especially in CrossFit, we have learned that intensity is of the essence. We have learned to go hard, to be complex, to use a lot equipment, and gather in gyms. For the time being, that doesn’t exist. We are being asked to return back to basics. To a very simple state. In this state, our body is going to continue to move but in a more subtle way, in a more simple way. With that simplicity, with that subtleness, there’s going to be a deep reprogramming of how our body experiences the reality we live in and how we interact with our environment. Relationship Just like we will change our interaction with the environment through our bodies, our interaction with others will reach for a new level. A new level of depth, connection and meaning. Take for example the implementation of social or physical distancing to flatten the curve of the outbreak. It has brought us closer together. When before we barely spoke to our neighbor, now we sing to them. When before we used to take health care workers for granted, today we applaud them and treat them like heroes. When before we may have under appreciated cleaners, truck drivers and retail workers, today we see them as not only essential but as the most valuable players. Craft Our craft is what we do. Not necessarily what we do for work, but rather that which we find interesting and have spent time practicing. Such as singing, playing an instrument, drawing, inventing, or simply creating. That which we may have considered to be a hobby, may now be what the world needs most from us as expressing that which we love is sharing our strengths and truest version of ourselves. Resource Management Think about the madness that has ensued, where people started buying insane amounts of toilet paper in preparation for quarantine. It’s a very strange behavior and it comes to show where our resource priorities lie at a collective level. I believe this limitation will push us to better manage what we have and what we get. I’ve always said: If one can’t manage $1000 in their bank account, one has no business generating or having $2,000 or $10,000 or a $1,000,000. Consciousness We are all being touched by the pandemic, thus we are starting to make decisions that take into consideration the needs of the collective. --- Support this podcast:

 Navigating COVID-19 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3248

In this episode I discuss the current climate of change we are living through due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. After a few weeks of waking up to messages from concerned health and fitness practitioners, it became clear that struggle was in the air and we were entering a state of transition. So I decided to take to social media to ask some questions, make some calls, and in a semi-live fashion report what a few health and fitness leaders have been dealing with and experienced over the last few days as Italy went on lockdown, Spain followed suit, and now the USA is next in line and bracing for impact. In this episode I feature: Kitcho Evangelidis - Founder and Owner of Oviedo Strength and Garaje Strength in Oviedo, Spain. Angel Orozco - Founder and Owner of Telegraph CrossFit in San Francisco, CA. Andrew Bueno - CoFounder and CoOwner of Foundation CrossFit in Seattle, WA. Logan Gelbrich - Founder of Deuce Gym in Venice, CA. --- Support this podcast:
