    Episode 306 - Tony Adams

    On this week's episode, Topher and Jeff recorded LIVE in St. Louis from Jeff’s “Taj Mahal” of home gyms, with Vechs’ NFL client and NY Jets Safety, Tony Adams. This is one of the best conversations we have ever had - TA went from being an undrafted free agent to an NFL starter in two years, and opens up about adversity and low points throughout his life. A powerful episode that is not sport specific - there is something in here for everyone!
    In this episode we talk about:
    — Finding mentorship
    — Being vulnerable
    — Resiliency & gratitude
    — Building athleticism
    AND SO MUCH MORE!
