Spot on

I am a healthcare provider in my 50s and more recently novice triathlete since 2019. Found Taren in 2020 and listen to his podcasts and watch his YouTube videos. I have thoroughly enjoyed and been well served by his content and advice and appreciate his positivity. The experts he has on podcasts and their conversations have helped me learn and improve in triathlon and more importantly I have gleaned info that has helped me better care for my patients (sleep, nutrition, exercise, slow weight loss, etc). His insights are spot on and based in science and studies and I agree with and promote the same balanced mind, body, and spirit approach to life. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to improve their health and endurance sport performance while seeking longevity in whatever activities peak their interest !

Don’t Need To Crush It

I’ve listened now for several years and watched many of the videos. I’ve done dozens of marathons and then into ultras then triathlon. But I am not elite and chasing those who are leads to frustration and injury. I appreciate the new direction. I love to hear the elites and their plans but surprisingly Garmin doesn’t want to sponsor me so I listen more for enjoyment and respect.

Over training lead to an injury in 2019 that still impacts me today. It took me a long time to get back to just mediocre. I’m ok with that. Hearing about amateurs putting in 20+hour weeks doesn’t make me want to do that it makes me want to find a better way. Thanks for opening to door to the conversation.

Narcissist

Loves to talk about his endurance swim, curling, and one and only IM distance race … all the time. Cringy.
