    Performance Podcast - 81 - Conscious Warrior System - Cohort 1 Reflections

    Sitting together in George's office, he and Matt enjoy a coffee whilst catching up on what's been going on for them thus far in 2022.
    Alongside working arguably the best two jobs in strength and conditioning, the guys have been busy. George has been flat out balancing fatherhood, with studying for his Bachelor's degree, developing his writing skills and crushing training in anticipation of completing the Recon Challenge in April... Matt on the other hand has mostly been hard at work shivering in Upstate New York!
    Talk inevitably turns to the Conscious Warrior System. The guys are in the process of conducting the final debriefs with each participant and are getting increasingly excited about the potential for this system to have huge implications for the tactical professional.
    Catch up with what the SOFLETE Human Performance Team has been getting up to and see where their sights are set next.

    Performance Podcast - 80 - Inside The Mind Of Dr. Katie Pate

    Performance Podcast - 80 - Inside The Mind Of Dr. Katie Pate

    George sits down with Dr. Katie (also known as Kate to many) Pate and explores a holistic approach to life and the actions it takes to build an experience worth living. Dr. Pate and George have an authentic, honest conversation with each other and share some ways they’ve learned to combat fear, anxiety, addiction, abuse, and countless other difficulties. Kate cracks George open in this one after she shares and fills George in on what she’s been doing during the past four years since she was last on the podcast. George then releases the flood gates, and stories come flowing as he shares a few personal experiences that created a shift in perspective regarding his own life. The conversation continues and takes the listener further into each of their minds and hearts. Kate and George explain why they do what they do and discuss their passion for helping the veteran community, especially as it pertains to helping build a different path than the one we've seen for many years.





    Kate’s bio:



    Dr. Pate is a neurophysiologist (PhD), athlete, entrepreneur, and certified coach dedicated to helping struggling service members, veterans, and first responders. She advocates for and educates on functional and non-traditional approaches to mental and physical health. Kate comes from a military family and has always been passionate about finding ways to help those who serve others. Her primary objectives are to help people find the path to healing that works best for them, to change the narrative around how we discuss mental and physical health in our communities, and ultimately, to remove the stigmas associated with diagnoses and asking for help.

    Performance Podcast - 79 - From the GridIron to the Frontlines with RDN Diana Nguyen

    Performance Podcast - 79 - From the GridIron to the Frontlines with RDN Diana Nguyen

    Dive into a conversation with George and Diana, as they sit and chat about the importance of nutrition from an omni-directional perspective on nutrition. Both George and Diana carry a wealth of experiences that they each shared on the show, only adding and connecting the dots in moving the needle forward in human performance. Furthermore, Diana believes strongly in science, research, and how science is being used to help build a foundation for the tactical professional. Re-educating each tactical professional, not only to support the physical, but most importantly, how nutrition can impact your cognitive function over time. Nutrition can be the smallest worthwhile change, aiding in lowering the chances of illness and disease, over the duration of a tactical professional career, potentially cutting their life span shorter and shorter.

    Diana Nguyen is a Performance Dietitian for U.S. Army Special Operations to support combat readiness, health, and career longevity for soldiers. Prior to her time in the Special Operations setting, Diana worked in collegiate athletics for 12 years, first as a Graduate Assistant at Virginia Tech, then serving as the Assistant Director for Performance Nutrition at Texas A&M University, and most recently as the Director of Sports Nutrition at NC State University. Diana is also the owner of Nguyen With Nutrition LLC which focuses on performance nutrition education for first responders and tactical professionals as well as competitive athletes.
    Nguyen earned her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Virginia Tech. She completed her dietetic internship at the University of Virginia Health System in 2008. She is a Registered/Licensed Dietitian (RD/LD), and Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD). She is a member of the practice group Sports and Human Performance Nutrition through SCAN, and she also serves on the Board of Directors for the Collegiate & Professional Sports Dietitians Association (CPSDA) as the Chair of Research and Education.

    Nguyen's passion for helping athletes and professionals reach peak performance and function through nutrition runs deep. In her free time she enjoys hiking, training and spending time with her family.

    Lunch And Learn - Chapter 8 - CWS Final Thoughts

    Lunch And Learn - Chapter 8 - CWS Final Thoughts

    Closing out the Lunch and Learn series
    Join George and Matt as they wrap up the last in the series of the Lunch and Learn podcast. The boys reflect on how the Conscious Warrior System has slowly taken shape over the past few years, as a direct result of first hand experience.
    Utilizing the metaphor of the Parthenon, George describes how a solid foundation of health is necessary to support the load placed on the modern tactical professional. However, the boys also acknowledge that the CWS project will continue to evolve and be refined, in order to keep delivering what the community needs. With that in mind, if you’d like to offer any suggestions or feedback, or have any questions relating to the CWS (or anything covered in this series), please reach out via social media or contact George and Matt directly via George@soflete.com or Matt@soflete.com.

One of Kind Fitness Series

If you know anything about SOFLETE, you know they’re a cut above the rest. These podcasts are no different. One episode are guys just talking about life & the next you’ll get advice on dialing in nutrition and how to make killer meals. All this knowledge wrapped in the warmth and barbed realness of the SOFLETE crew. Hope to see more episodes in the future!
