teamE4E Wellness is meant to provide an inclusive atmosphere for the adult-onset athlete, where support and acceptance can go a long way in bringing everyone to a healthier lifestyle. It’s a way of thinking that doesn’t allow for obstacles to get in the way of the things you want to achieve. It’s a way of saying, yes I am fat, or obese, or overly tall, or old, or young, and I am slow or injured, or tired, but I can get off the couch and train, and I can compete in and complete any race I set my mind to complete.
teamE4E Episode 183: Coaching and Health with Rachel Andras
I know it has been a while and I want to thank you all for your patience while I navigated 2020. It has been one hell of a year, but even with all of the bad, there were slivers of good, one being introduced to people like the coach on today's show Rachel Andras. We sat down earlier today on Facebook Live to discuss coaching, health, wellness, and the strange journey that has led me from struggling with my weight all of these years to losing 75 pounds since April.

And yes, I left the beginning in there because I thought it was funny :-)
teamE4E Episode 182: Gaining and Losing the COVID19 - A Discussion with Pete D'Amico
I know it's shocking, but the news of the day makes it onto Episode 182 as Pete joins John to discuss the effect of this pandemic on our mental health, or weight, our training, and our day to day work life. This is the first show we have done since the shutdown and a lot has happened. We now, many of us, work from home, relatives have been lost, the weight has been gained, and cities are on fire. As much as we want to not think about these things, a discussion on how it has affected us is needed.
teamE4E Episode 181: The Mo Jo Sho
We all have things we need to overcome. For some, it might be cancer or some other illness. For others, it might be a big family and an unsupportive partner. When I talk about motivation or "mo jo", I am referring that point where that issue becomes so overwhelming it stops you from doing either what you need to do or what you want to do.
John and Karen talk a little about this along with some of the ways they personally deal, and not deal, with that loss of mojo when it happens.
teamE4E Episode 180: We Are Back with Karen Clarke
We thank you for your patience as we reimagined the show and thought through the direction over the past few months. Tonight Karen Clarke coaxed John out of his self-imposed exile to talk about his plans for the future and continued journey as both a coach and athlete in the endurance world. We even started off with a few discussions about New Zealand, America, some of the differences in how we perceive things when we return home and how the Noom program is helping John with weight loss.
teamE4E 177: Pete D'Amico | No Fear Project | Positive Suggestions | Role Identification
A discussion with Pete D'Amico of Fatman Chronicles and the new "No Fear Project" about the subconscious mind and how we tend to undermine our efforts by assigning roles to ourselves. The belief in who we are, what we are capable of, what we can and cannot do, can be a strong motivator and predictor in who and what we become. If you have parents who constantly hounded you about being worthless, no good, “bound for prison”, often results in an adult who actually turns out the exact way that was “predicted”. Been told you were somehow “less than” your whole life results in that belief within you, no matter how well you try to hide it. The inner voice, the voice of your father, mother, teachers, spiritual leader, is in your head and will remain there.
The conversation revolves around my use of the title “Fat Slow Triathlete” and Pete's "Fatman Chronicles" and how, subconsciously, we might regress in order to meet those role expectations.

Endurance for Everyone: Ironman at 60 - EP 1
This is the short and sweet intro to the show that will only get better with time. I am using a new way to post and to manage, so we will see how that evolves. Hopefully the last 5 months have been great to everyone and you're glad to have me back.
I have listened to John and Rob for about a year and have enjoyed this podcast immensely!! It is filled with humor while talking about the hosts successes and downfalls of weight loss, endurance training, and their races!
John and Rob are great host and cover all things endurance for all level of athletes from back, middle and front of the pack!!
I really enjoy the honesty of John during the shows. He shows that’s it’s okay to not be perfect and everyone can improve. This podcast is very motivational and encouraging. I recommend listening to this show.
