I started listening to the Icon Athlete Podcast pre-Doug and I must say, I liked it back then, but I absolutely LOVE it now. The witty banter, the pet peeves, and the all around education provided make Icon one of my all time favorite podcasts to listen to!

I currently work as the Head Coach of a Crossfit gym in Chesterfield, Va but have been out on maternity leave for the last two months. As a first time mom, I of course have had concerns about losing my fitness during this postpartum period. I was fortunate to have had a wonderful pregnancy, was able to workout (smartly & safely!) up until my due date, and had a smooth labor; all of which I attribute to Crossfit and solid nutrition. I’ve been suffering with some major athlete brain lately, wanting to do more than I should and perform movements that I “can” do but ultimately shouldn’t yet.

What has helped immensely is hearing Chris express his frustrations regarding his own fitness and the changes he has experienced while transitioning from his role as a professional athlete. It’s incredibly difficult not to compare our current fitness levels to those of the past, professional athlete or not. BUT hearing Chris discuss the same concerns that I have as a postpartum mom has been such a relief! Although our circumstances are much different, it’s refreshing to hear another person experiencing similar emotions.

Thanks for always providing me with a laugh on my drives to work, or now, during marathon feeding sessions with my son!

Side note: my MAJOR pet peeve is when athletes just throw their dumbbells on the dumbbell rack! They don’t put them in order of weight AND half the time the dumbbells are hanging off the edge. I’m waiting for some poor unexpected soul to walk by and have their toe smashed😑🤦🏼‍♀️get it together people!

Much love!

Yet another Female Fan!

You guys are great, thanks for the information and the entertainment!

Can you help with a question? My partner and I have gotten to a certain age (40) and can out lift, run, jump, etc most if not all of our friends, family and competition... so how do we set new goals? If you’re fitness is already providing for your outside gym life what do we set our sights on to stay motivated? Or can we quit now and just eat bonbons and watch reality tv?

Gym pet peeve:
Gym owners who act like their gym family is the Mafia, nobody leaves the gym alive!

Boys who get butthurt being beaten by a woman.

Distracted coaches!
