    Brian Mazza: Living a High-Performance Lifestyle

    Brian Mazza: Living a High-Performance Lifestyle

    Brian grew up in New York and spent 15 years in the hospitality and fashion industry after a great soccer career at the University of Rhode Island. He was always a great athlete but knew that he wasn’t reaching his full potential in life.
    Recognizing that he didn’t grow up with a lot of adversity, Brian made it his lifestyle to make most of his abilities by introducing adversity through getting out of his comfort zone and starting another business from scratch. This time, however, the goal would be to help others reach their potential too. 
    After jumping in head-first and getting David Goggins as his first fitness headline guest, his plan began to work. In 2017 and 2019 Brian was on the cover of Men’s Health and has been featured in Men’s Fitness, GQ, Esquire, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fox 5, Cheddar, The Steve Harvey Show, and is a frequent guest on various Food Network shows.

    Lindsay Webster: Three-Time Spartan World Champion

    Lindsay Webster: Three-Time Spartan World Champion

    Lindsay Webster is already a Spartan legend. She recently brought home first place from Abu Dhabi, Spartan’s first world championship outside of the US in over a decade, to give her a third world championship in four years. No other Spartan athlete has ever won three times. 
    What made this win even sweeter was the fact that her husband, Ryan Atkin, also won the men’s championship for the first time. 
    Today we’re hearing from Lindsay about how she’s able to win and what it was like to leave a full-time career and pursue being a pro athlete.

    Ambassador Stories: Unexpected Gratitude

    Ambassador Stories: Unexpected Gratitude

    As we straddle the dates between Veterans Day and Thanksgiving, we decided to highlight both with a unique episode. We’re hearing short stories from a handful of ambassadors about things they are unexpectedly thankful for this year. The reason for this is that so many of the guest on Without Compromise have mentioned gratitude as being one of their best daily practices or something that helps them live Without Compromise. 
    We’ll also be hearing from our Director of Operations and veteran, Chris Kallam, about our Veterans Day beer, Ready Front, which is still available at AthleticBrewing.com.

    Mike Chambers: Beat Monday

    Mike Chambers: Beat Monday

    Summiting mountains in South America, bikepacking in the desert, and climbing classic big wall routes sound like epic adventures that you’d have to save lots of vacation days for, right? The travel alone would take up at least a day or two, especially for any international trips. Not to mention making arrangements for other responsibilities like kids, pets, work, etc. 
    Mike Chambers and his adventure partner, Jason Antin, think otherwise. In fact, they think you can leave the office on Friday at 5pm, have an adventure of a lifetime and be back at work at 9am on Monday. Is it easy? Of course not. Is it worth it? C’mon now. 
    It all started when Mike was living in Boston and Jason was based in Colorado and the two came up with the bright idea of summiting Mt. Rainier in a true weekend. To the astonishment of the park rangers that hesitantly granted them the permit, their plan worked. Although the morning meetings that Monday were not as productive as they usually were, they both walked away with a pretty epic response to the age-old question, “what did you do this weekend?” 
    Once the concept of Beat Monday was proven, Jason and Mike began dreaming of what else could be possible with this format. Bikerafting, big wall climbing, ultrarunning, and international travel began to fill their weekends and was even made into an OutsideTV series, Beat Monday. 
    Mike is joining us today to tell us about what he’s learned through the Beat Monday mindset and what’s possible for you to beat whatever your Monday is.

    Maddie Stambaugh: IRONMAN Finisher

    Maddie Stambaugh: IRONMAN Finisher

    Finishing an IRONMAN is at the very top of many endurance athletes’ bucket lists. It’s a daunting goal to put all the training, logistical, and motivational pieces together to pull off such an extreme athletic achievement. 
    For Maddie, it was the ultimate athletic experience. Being a marathoner, she had a leg up on folks starting from scratch, but running is still only one-third of the skills you need for a triathlon, so the math was still against her. 
    Despite many setbacks and many times she could have logically bowed out of training and preparation, Maddie continued through every challenge, all the way up to race day (the ocean waves were crazy!). After 140.6 miles she heard those fateful words, “You are an IRONMAN!”. 
    Listen in to hear the biggest lessons that Maddie learned in preparation and on race day, and what it takes to finish an IRONMAN without compromise.

Great way to find some inspiration

I love listening to the Without Compromise podcast because each episode has a unique story and provides various ways to help inspire and uplift myself and I imagine other listeners. It celebrates the human being not just the elite athlete and podium winners.
