    Elite Brain Performance Science and Mindset Hacks for Total Human Optimization with Jeff Byers

    Elite Brain Performance Science and Mindset Hacks for Total Human Optimization with Jeff Byers

    Jeff Byers is a former NFL player and the current CEO of Amp Human, which offers innovative products that help athletes push the limits on their performance, adaptation, and recovery.
    With an interest in both sports and entrepreneurship from an early age, Jeff always harbored an interest in finding creative ways to push his boundaries for growth as a human. “I was always thinking about the little things I could do to get better,” he says. “I tried to use my brain to work smarter than always just work harder.”
    After retiring from the NFL, Jeff worked for a few years in the finance space before joining an early-stage biotech startup in late 2015. This company had discovered a way to deliver pharmaceuticals through the skin, bypassing the GI system which often limits the body’s ability to optimally absorb vitamins and minerals taken orally.
    Not long after joining the company, Jeff and one of his partners developed a broad vision for a business offering products specifically formulated to optimize human performance, a space in which they saw, at the time, a huge gap in the market.
    Listen in as Jeff talks all things human performance and optimization and why he refers to it as a “broad spectrum”. He also discusses the benefits of Amp Human’s flagship product, PR Lotion, and its newly released D+ Lotion.
    Key Highlights
    Jeff explains how to differentiate between human performance and biohacking, and how he optimizes his cognitive abilities. Routines are great for introducing discipline; but could they also be a limiting factor to evolving, adapting, and breaking past barriers with regard to human performance? What does Jeff mean by “broad spectrum human performance”? Jeff speaks on the relationship between mindset and human performance. How do Amp Human’s products, particularly PR Lotion, help humans break their limits and achieve more? Episode resources:

    From Vision to Millions and The Importance of a Compelling Why with Jason Franklin

    From Vision to Millions and The Importance of a Compelling Why with Jason Franklin

    A compelling “Why” can drive your actions and goals to great heights, and few exemplify this better than today’s podcast guest and Co-Founder of Sportiqe apparel company, Jason Franklin. 
    In an effort to escape pain and discomfort he experienced growing up, Jason created a company that has given him opportunity, abundance, and community. The products he has developed have become part of culture and are worn by big stars such as Justin Beiber, Beyonce, and Jay Z. During today’s episode, Chase and Jason discuss Jason's dreams as a child, the pivotal moments that led him to realizing his calling, his entrepreneurial journey, and his why behind it all. 
    Throughout school, Jason felt uncomfortable with himself and was teased. As a 9-year-old living in Chicago, Jason had crazy red hair and really wanted a hat he could find comfort in. Being a huge sports fan who grew up in Chicago, he naturally wanted a Bulls hat. As Jason also suffered from abuse at home, gathering hope for his future was challenging, but once he focused on his vision and started drawing hats, unexpected opportunities began to appear. Within a few years, Jason started Sportiqe with the goal of making the most comfortable clothes you can buy. Jason believed that having access to the most comfortable clothes would allow people to be in their most comfortable state, enabling them to be the best version of themselves. With this product, the vision was to create something that elevates the wearer's mood and hopefully allows the consumer to access their true calling and follow their passions and dreams. 
    Nowadays, so many people are searching for their path in life. Jason’s belief is that if you believe in it, you can achieve it. Keeping with Jason's philosophy, he hopes that his products can provide customers with the comfort they need to find their true calling and realize their potential.

How did Jason manage to do that? The buffalo logo was chosen based on its characteristics How Jason keeps improving, passes on excellence, and continues learning from other experts and leaders How to achieve your dreams and the best advice Jason has ever received The impact of the past few years on Jason's business Jason's company culture and views on teamwork.

    Secrets to Weight-Loss Success and the Roles of Goal-Setting and Motivation For Achieving Lasting Changes in Your Health and Fitness with Michelle Segar

    Secrets to Weight-Loss Success and the Roles of Goal-Setting and Motivation For Achieving Lasting Changes in Your Health and Fitness with Michelle Segar

    What’s the secret to putting together a perfectly imperfect formula to find success in our perfectly imperfect life?
    Award-winning researcher and health coach Michelle Segar sits down with Chase to talk about what it takes to achieve lasting changes in our health and fitness. She explains why it’s so important to build a strong foundation of understanding around human behavior, and how these behaviors influence how we make decisions, big and small, in our day-to-day lives.
    Michelle discusses the role of goal-setting and motivation on our journey of growth, and how having a strong “why” drives us forward as we make our daily choices. She encourages us to always have self-compassion, and to see the path of lasting change as an opportunity to better not just ourselves, but those we care about as well!
    Michelle Segar is an award-winning, NIH-funded researcher at the University of Michigan with almost thirty years studying how to help people adopt self-care behaviors, like exercise and healthy eating, in ways that bring meaning and joy and can survive the complexity and unpredictability of the real world.

    Key Highlights
    When is motivation the answer? Does it ever actually serve us or is it always going to be nothing more than a crutch? Getting clear on your “why” is, more often than not, the missing link between making lifestyle changes, and sustaining those changes Michelle explains why she prefers to use the term “daily choice making” instead of “behavior change” Not every big decision needs to be life-or-death. When we’re on the verge of making choices related to our health and fitness, having compassion for ourselves is more motivational and effective than judging ourselves harshly. Michelle shares how we can create our own “self-care hierarchy” Episode resources:
