    Tyler Koch: Training F-35 Fighter Pilots

    Tyler Koch: Training F-35 Fighter Pilots

    Join Ariana as she chats with Tyler Koch about his time working as a Subject Matter Expert for the United States Air Force, overseeing Human Performance within the F-35 fighter pilot community.
    He was also integral in founding the first ever Human Performance Initiative within Undergraduate Pilot Training. He has an M.S. in Exercise Science from George Washington University and prior to his role in the Air Force, he owned a gym, worked with professional athletes, and thoroughly explored the private sector of strength and conditioning. Currently, Tyler is training to become a Physician Assistant at Penn State’s Medical School.
    Discussed:
    Immediately, Ariana getting Tyler's last name wrong, even though she asked him how to pronounce it right before she hit record
    What it takes to be a Fighter Pilot, what school looks like, and what training looks like
    The purpose of the Human Performance Initiative, and its positive impact on the fighter pilot community
    Testing to become a fighter pilot: how do you train to resist 9 gs of force? How do you physically resist 9 times the force of gravity while piloting a jet?

    Jack Driscoll: An "Overall Fitness Enjoyer" Ep #71

    Jack Driscoll: An "Overall Fitness Enjoyer" Ep #71

    Meet Jack Driscoll, self-proclaimed "overall fitness enjoyer," firefighter, coach, and phenomenal hybrid athlete. A guy who enjoys launching himself at a wide variety of fitness events, Jack burst into the competitive scene by winning Rally in the Valley, around the same time that he was tackling Hybricon Regionals, followed by a bodybuilding competition, and then an Ironman. Back to back to back. There may have been a powerlifting meet in there, too.
    Jack discusses how he trained for a sub-3 hour marathon in 18 months, as a dude who "runs like a refrigerator" and doesn't even particularly like distance running. How did he trick himself into doing the long runs? How slowly, carefully, and sustainably did he start out? 
    Fitness shouldn't be a punishment, and Jack finds joy in trying new things and developing his fitness in new ways. Jack of all trades, Master of none - with the unbeatable mindset that treats failure as a lesson and a challenge, not an end.
    "Send it" with Jack as he trains for his 100-miler on Instagram at @jack.d_fitness

    Vera Stepina - Crucible Pro Champ 2024

    Vera Stepina - Crucible Pro Champ 2024

    Vera Stepina is a lifestyle and nutrition coach, a hybrid athlete who was doing hybrid stuff before it was hybrid, a client of Alex Viada's, and a woman with 3 children who is rediscovering her potential after at least a year of considering it "dead in the water."
    Listen to Vera and Ariana discuss the mindset required for massive lifestyle overhauls and shifts, the common roadblocks people experience (including themselves), the trials and tribulations of Kettlebell Long Cycles, and how Vera surprised the shit out of herself for at least the 3rd time this year. The good, the bad, the ugly, and some insights from long-time nutrition coaches who both came into their athleticism much later in life (after spending a lot of their lives considering athleticism entirely off the table).
    See also: Why it's incredibly important to volunteer at events, why it's important to try new things, and be totally okay with being really, really bad at them.

    Kaleb Yates: Prepared for All Things Ep #69

    Kaleb Yates: Prepared for All Things Ep #69

    Kaleb is a tenured Spartan pro athlete, HYROX racer, DEKA athlete, and hybrid competitor - listen to him discuss how he arrived at this competitive level, what appeals to him about hybrid sport, and the pros and cons of being a "larger" competitor (6'3, 210+ lbs). On top of that, Kaleb is an upstanding gent and brilliant sportsman, bringing a ferocity and amicability to the start line that few people balance just right.
    Kaleb discusses how he gets into the right mindset for competition, how that's evolved during his time as a competitor and after his time in the military, and how his network of fellow competitors keep him focused. Hybricon 2024 sounds like it's going to be lit, and he's already signed up for Rally in the Valley 2024.
    Coming right off of crewing Kris Rugloski at the World's Toughest Mudder 2023, Kaleb discusses the planning and challenges that come with a 24 hour race (plan A needs a plan B, C, D, E, F, and Z), and the ways he's prepping for this DEKA and Hyrox Season alongside Hunter McIntyre.

The Ariana Scalfo Conversation is a must listen

I thought her openness about anxiety was incredible and this is a must listen for any athlete

Ken _ Palmer_PGH ,

Excellent content

REAL information for all athletes with variety of needs especially the Hybrid athlete

nomisdc ,

Very informative

As an athlete I enjoyed their informed perspectives actress multiple domains. They do it without favoring domains. Please increase the recording volume of the podcast. Compare to other phone content this is very low and hard to hear on speaker.
