E415 - Developing Greatness - What It Takes To Build an Athlete - A Fit Life Series

In this episode of A Fit Life, brought to you by Sierra Strength and Speed, we bring Nate Hallett back to tackle more questions about coaching, athletics, and working with the developing athlete. In this round-robin format, we each have questions ready but we try to answer the questions from 3 different perspectives; the coach, the athlete, and the associate staff or parent. We hope this format covers the questions from all sides and gives the listener something to think about. We tackle the question of role model/mentor and how today's kids have so many resources at hand to see everything an athlete of choice is doing to work their craft, but how it seems that a lot of them aren’t using their screen time for this purpose. How do coaches handle different kids, and how do you create a role model on a team, or how do you keep the loud kid who may not be the best role model from trying to always take the spotlight? We hope you enjoy this talk as much as we did!

E414 - Mixed Drinks and Emotions - Breakin' It Down

Crosby is smiling again, sorta. With mixed emotions about getting a new dog and still feeling the loss of Picon, he struggles to find balance in moving forward and remembering the past. This is sometimes a real battle for us all. The good news is that Alex got a new bulldog and he named him Bruno! He is adjusting to life with Bruno and trying to fill the void of the sudden loss of Picon. The discussion weaves in and out of these feelings and the possibility of having kids and how they could really give Crosby what he’s looking for. He remains hard headed and stern in his stance of no kids, and even no marriage! Chad tries to break him and maybe he does, or at least gets close! The banter and laughs are there as we break down life in our own way!
