    Bob Babbitt - The Lightning Rod of the Endurance World

    Bob Babbitt - The Lightning Rod of the Endurance World

    Bob Babbitt is, simply put, the lightning rod of the endurance world.
    In 1980, he participated in his first IRONMAN on the island of O'ahu, Hawaii, and has been making history ever since. He'd never call himself an elite athlete and yet, he's a member of the USA Triathlon and IRONMAN Triathlon Halls of Fame. Why? Because he believes that sport is essential for all and changes lives every day.
    His name is synonymous with the sport of triathlon along with his long-running Babbittville podcast, radio, and tv show. In fact, it is Babbitt, more than anyone, who has given voice and image to this crazy event in Hawaii that no one could really wrap their mind around.
    He is the heartbeat of multisport/triathlon and, in our sport’s story, is the main character. Nope. He's the hero.
    Through his efforts, he has exposed endurance sports to everyone - literally - everyone, as co-founder of Challenged Athletes Foundation, founder of Competitor Magazine, and more.
    "When you go from your gut and when you go from your passions, things seem to work out," he says in today's interview. "Sport makes you better at everything you do."
    This mantra is the heart of the Performance Reset 2020 - experts and companies sharing their thoughts on the role of sport because, make no mistake, sport is powerful. You might be feeling rudderless. You might be tired of this carnival and the uncertainty. But, we have no doubt you have a performance-driven mindset. You may or may not identify as an athlete, but you can learn and thrive by applying elements of the athletic mindset.
    Bob and all of the hosts and experts are here to help you develop your performance toolkit in 2021. Join us and let's keep everyone in the game of life through sport.

    Poignant, Powerful, and Positive Life Lessons from a 50 Mile Ultra

    Poignant, Powerful, and Positive Life Lessons from a 50 Mile Ultra

    As we finish 2020 and gear up emotionally for bigger and better times in 2021, we’ve got a chance to RESET, to lay the groundwork of mindset, habits, and action that will equip us to thrive next year - no matter what is thrown our way.
    Matt put this mantra to action at a recent 50 Mile Ultra race and shares the poignant, painful, and powerful life lessons he learned running for over 12 hours in the mountains of central Oregon.
    This very simple event acted as a lightening rod and helped with so many other positive habits around flexibility, patience, accountability, and community.
    He leaned into the power of sport and it provided much-needed purpose to enable excellence across all aspects of life.
    This is the heart of the Performance Reset 2020 - experts and companies sharing their thoughts on the role of sport because, make no mistake, sport is powerful. You might be feeling rudderless. You might be tired of this carnival and the uncertainty. But, we have no doubt you have a performance-driven mindset. You may or may not identify as an athlete, but you can learn and thrive by applying elements of the athletic mindset.
    It won’t happen by accident and we want to help.

    Big Lessons from the Big Island

    Big Lessons from the Big Island

    Yes, it's the week that triathletes, coaches, and spectators usually descend up Kailua-Kona for the annual IRONMAN World Championships. 
    This week, Matt looks back on six memorable stories from his 20+ years of heading over to Kona for the big race. Some stories involve lessons pros like Chris Lieto, Rachel Joyce, and Sarah Piampiano. Other takeaways center around age-group athletes that Matt has coached at the World Championships. 
    Each story is poignant and full of life lessons for all of us - stay calm, stick with the process, nail the basics, get your attitude right, and, most importantly: NEVER Stand Down Wind. 
    We know you'll enjoy this look back at some of the moments that make this race so special, sufferable, unique, rewarding, and totally unforgettable. We don't even blame you if you feel a wee bit of nostalgia. We miss it too.

    Parenting Through COVID-19 with a Coach's Lens - Fostering Development and Acceleration with Creativity and Communication

    Parenting Through COVID-19 with a Coach's Lens - Fostering Development and Acceleration with Creativity and Communication

    Our children have faced change across various arenas of life and, for most, it has been incredibly isolating. Many parents are struggling with how to support kids through the turbulence that we find ourselves in these days, especially in terms of talking about Covid-19, supporting their education, and addressing the common fears of social, sporting, and emotional development due to the detours that we are navigating.
    Today, Matt provides his lens on how to support children emotionally, through his unique coaching lens: fostering development in our kids through sport, and creating fun and inventive ways to drive them forward.
    Kids are observant, smart, and adaptable. We cannot hide or gloss the situation and they are more equipped than we realize to handle a tailored version of the realities we face.

    Ivan O'Gorman - The Values, Benefits, and Results of a Proper Bike Fit

    Ivan O'Gorman - The Values, Benefits, and Results of a Proper Bike Fit

    We've got one for the geeks this week as I welcome Ivan O'Gorman of IOG Bike Fit and Consulting to the podcast for a deep dive on bike fitting and performance. Ivan regularly works with recreational cyclists and triathletes of all levels, as well as World Tour professionals and Olympians. As a seven-time IRONMAN World Championship finisher and two-time LT 100 MTB finisher, Ivan has significant first-hand knowledge of the many factors athletes must consider to maximize results. Plus, did we mention that he's engaging, animated, and incredibly smart?
    Bike fitting, one would argue, is equal parts art and science, but as you'll hear, it's much more than just changing a saddle position and sending you on your way without regard to comfort and performance.
    If you've recently purchased a new bike (and we know many of you have), or if you want to get dialed in for 2021, now is a great time to get your equipment in order. It doesn't matter if you're a competitve triathlete eeking out every last watt, or a recreational rider who simply wants to enjoy a new activity with your family. You'll enjoy it more when you feel good.
    Key Discussion Topics Include:
    The value of a good bike fit for both recreational riders and competitive athletes
    What's more important? Comfort, aerodynamics, or optimal return?
    What are some of the biggest mistakes you see in bike position and fit?
    What factors go into an IOG Bike Fit?
    What are some considerations that riders should make when they are thinking about equipment and bike purchases?
    Crank Length! Is shorter always better?
    Why is right now a great time for a bike consult or fit?
    What you can expect from a virtual fit or consultation?
