Chip Conrad

If the fitness industry was William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream Chip Conrad would undoubtedly be the mischievous Puck. Chip is a bundle of walking paradoxes, only one of which is that he’s both a vegetarian and a competitive weightlifter, and he likes it that way.  An apostle of physical culture, his passion for true fitness is so strong even he can’t take it seriously. I am proud to consider Chip my mentor and friend and honored that a man who, in this day and age of modern technology, still can’t be reached by telephone managed an hour long conversation with me via… Read More »

Luis Carrillo

Happy New Year! To kick off 2013 I’ve included an interview I did with Strengthology student, Luis Carrillo.  Luis lives and trains in San Diego, California. Luis traveled to St. Petersburg in June of 2012 for a Strengthology I workshop with Elliott Hulse.  There he discovered several imbalances, or what Elliott calls “muscle viruses.”  Empowered with a new knowledge for correcting those imbalances and a rekindled passion for change.  Luis set to work. In three short months he gained five pounds of muscle and made great strides in his mobility and athleticism — all with just bodyweight training. To learn… Read More »

Charles Abouzied

Happy Holidays, ya’ll. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas.  Today I’m bringing you an interview with Charles Abouzied.  Charles runs Crossfit House of Pain up in New Jersey.  I met him last summer at the Underground Conference 2012. In a room full of fitness pros Charles certainly stands out.  As you can see from his picture, Charles is a big man and at first glance not what you would expect in a fitness professional.  But don’t be too quick to judge, because Charles will quickly show you his abilities far out strip what his appearance might imply.… Read More »

Elliott Hulse

Happy Wendesday, ya’ll. Today’s interview is with Elliott ‘The Incredible’ Hulse.  If you’re not familiar with Elliott by now, you clearly haven’t been paying attention.  Not only does he frequently get a nod of acknowledgement here, he is one of the most prolific authorities on YouTube. Husband, father, pro-Strongman, gym owner, Mental Meat Head, Non-Jobs guru and purveyor of knowledge both profane and profound, Elliott has been a huge influence in both my business and my life. In today’s interview we wander off the beaten path, digging deep into the philosophical side of fitness and becoming truly the strongest version… Read More »

Jason C. Brown

Happy Wednesday, ya’ll. Today’s interview, over at War Stories, is Jason C. Brown.  Jason is THE reason I’m on the path I’m on right now.  Six years ago I started following his kettlebell tutorials on YouTube, by the way they remain to be some of the best material on kettlebells out there. Through Jason I was introduced to Zach Even-Esh and later Elliott Hulse. Jason is a poet of movement and I’m thrilled to include him as one of the speakers I’m bringing to the gym in January for the Mental Meat Heads Workshop. You can download or listen to his interview HERE. If… Read More »
