    We are kicking off this season with one of the best and most beloved CrossFit Games athletes of all time. Jason Khalipa has competed in the CrossFit Games on 8 separate occasions - as an individual for 7 consecutive years, and wrapping up an 8th year as a team competitor. Throughout his CrossFit Games career, Jason has only placed outside the Top 10 once, has won every Regional competition he has participated in, and he won the Spirit of the Games award in 2009. Not only has Jason held all podium positions at the world championships, but he was also named to Team USA 3 times. Jason opened his gym in 2008 after winning 1st place in his first CrossFit Games appearance and 11 years later has expanded to over 20 locations. Jason and his wife Ashley live in Los Gatos with their 2 children Kaden and Ava.

    S2EP1: Georges St-Pierre

    To dive right into the subject of pain, we knew we had to talk to the one and only Georges St-Pierre, UFC's 2017 Middleweight Champion of the World, and formerly 2x Welterweight Champion of the World. You can't talk about UFC without considering the role that pain plays in both training and competing. GSP talks frankly about how he experiences and deals with pain, both physical and mental, at the highest level of competitive sport. Georges joined us via Skype from Montreal, CA.

    S1EP1: Dr. Richard Lee

    Dr. Lee is a pioneer in using cutting-edge technology to provide preventative healthcare. In this conversation we cover the science of genetics, the current state of research, where it's helpful, where it's not helpful, what we all need to know, and what we all need to watch out for. Juliet and Kelly have both had their DNA analyzed and seen Dr. Lee as patients, so we are able to get into specific examples of what can be learned and acted on, and whether they found it useful.
