Insights on Life & Career Transitions

Cletus is very passionate about educating other athletes about life after sports, and he makes it explicit that being an athlete is just one part of someone’s identity. The Recovering Athlete Podcast profiles the life transitions and transformations of athletes on their developmental path to a long-term fulfilling lifestyle, and oftentimes entrepreneurship. The episodes are conducted with sensitivity and compassion for the challenging circumstances of “recovery”, while honoring the grit and perseverance necessary to transcend "retirement".

The podcasts include storytelling, profiles of athletic development, characteristics of peak performance, and effective ways to translate sports-based skill sets to athlete’s next careers. Any person working with aspiring or elite athletes should be informed on the complexities of their unique life transition, to better support their development and planning beyond their last competition.

From the philosophical to the practical, the hundreds of insights spotlighted in episodes are valuable to any listener, not only athletes. Anyone experiencing a life transition can build confidence in hearing these stories of tough and resilient people overcoming challenges and re-inventing themselves.

Cletus guides the conversations in a very thoughtful and complete way. The stories are especially meaningful and memorable because Cletus has experienced (and succeeded through) this life transition himself. This personal relevance dynamic and his friendly demeanor makes the learning accessible and entertaining.

Highly recommended

This is a relevant topic that all athletes can relate to. Cletus provides a platform to discuss the struggle of adjusting to life after your athletic career ends. Through his own experiences and interviews with high level athletes from a variety of backgrounds, he provides the encouragement and motivation necessary to continue to live life, professionally and personally, with the same tenacity we brought to the gym or field. He offers a unique perspective to a topic not often discussed, and it's refreshing to know that others have struggled with careers and expectations too. Thanks for taking the time to address this and your efforts to build the community for ex-athletes!
