‘Cause Stone Cold said so!

The dudes tell it like it is.

They use their knowledge and experiences to shed light on tons of different topics within the coaching and CrossFit world. I’m positive you can pick up a nugget or two from each episode, but if not, you’ll at least be entertained by the banter.

They also are great about fielding comments and messages on their social media and turning them into podcasts to follow up and share with everyone.

Tap that subscribe button, listen to some episodes, follow them on social, and leave your own review.

....and that’s the bottom line...

Smart guy who’s awfully fond of himself

This podcast is a lot like coffee. I like what I get out of it, but it doesn’t always taste very good.

Overall, I think it’s a worth while listen if your head is in the right space. I’m always looking to grow and learn, but right now I’m in a particular place where I’m looking for all input and feedback about CF gyms, athletics, coaching, ownership, management,.... the whole shebang. What I mean is, I’m in a decidedly receptive state of mind. That said, Jason is very proud of his past and certainly let’s you know it.

Jason is obviously an experienced guy with a lot of applicable lessons that I think are very valuable, but there’s also a lot of minutia in there that I don’t think is necessary to convey the message and often obscures the importance or helpfulness. I don’t mind blunt personalities, and think that type of delivery is necessary and useful, but I often find that his bluntness lacks a sensitivity to effectively answer the question in specific terms, and instead remains in the conceptual realm. I identify very strongly with one being responsible for their own life and needing to take control to affect the path, but feel like the lecture on principles is less helpful when it comes unaccompanied by evidence or examples.

The most admirable trait I appreciate in the next level coaches and mentors I’ve known is there ability to leave themselves personally out of it, and focus on you and the subject at hand to correct and improve. Jason is very fond of tooting his own horn and celebrating his own experiences.

So, yes, I will continue to listen, though with less fervor than I would with someone like Ben Bergeron. All valuable lessons, for sure, even if it takes a bit more effort on the listener’s part to distill the important takeaways.
