Greg Amundson is an official “FOS”

That’s Friend of the Show.

Greg’s teachings, books, and leadership have been instrumental in my own development and I know that many of you feel the same way. I know this because more than anyone else, I get emails asking to get Greg back on the show.

Lucky for us he has a new book out, “Firebreather Fitness: Work Your Body, Mind, and Spirit into the Best Shape of Your Life.”

Greg’s nickname as the “Original Firebreather” goes back to his time as one of the first students of Greg Glassman, the founder of CrossFit. There seem to be about 6 people on Earth who can say they’ve been doing CrossFit longer than Greg.

In this episode we talk about the importance of separating your Purpose from your profession, why your “Why” is important to understand, and how positive talk influences our lives. We talk about transitions as a lot of us are going through them, whether it’s starting the academy, getting promoted, or retiring, and how we can use those transitions to reinvigorate our purpose in life.

As expected, it’s a great conversation with Greg.
