Awesome podcast 💪🏽

Wonderful insight and depth into some niche corners of the fitness world. Fitness is not a one-size-fits-all experience and it is so cool to see how people have carved their own unique way and lead others. Invictus Mindset does a great job of highlighting individuals who are crushing down their own paths
