“I’m trapped in an underwater cave.

A 3-foot-high cave 60 feet below sea level. An avalanche of sand explodes through the water as a large shark torpedoes me.

 It’s completely dark.”

Do new things. Do hard things. Do dangerous things.

  • Cultivating self-control through stillness and heightened awareness to take purposeful actions
  • Taking an uncommon way that leaves an indelible mark on the world

Capture the essence of adventure athletics

The true essence of adventure lies in our ability to fully engage and embrace life itself.
It’s about immersing ourselves in experiences that capture our imagination and  consume all our senses in ways we never thought about.
Adventure allows us to break free from the monotony of routine, to step out of our comfort zones, and to truly come alive.
And what about athletics? It’s not solely about building physical fitness, although that is certainly an important aspect.
The highest purpose of athletics is to cultivate physical, mental, and spiritual fitness to build the strength, capabilities and capacities to push through the battles. challenges. obstacles, and setbacks (the realities of life). It is about training our bodies, minds, and souls to keep moving forward, not only in sports but in every area of our lives.

“I can tell you stories and concepts all day long. But at some point you have to EXPERIENCE them yourself. Belief is a poor substitute for experience. Mastery requires experience. Transformation requires IMMERSION.”

What am I about?

Keep asking: Do I have what it takes?

I‘m 50+. I’m too old. I have two types of cancer. That makes me too sick. The surgeries to manage my diseases are lengthy and numerous. The eye cancer left me blind in my right eye. Add an enlarged artery to the mix.

I injured myself one too many times. A severed ligament in the hip should have meant that I would never run again. I broke bones. Too many to list or remember. I have dislocated all my fingers– not all at once, but I’ve easily done it many times over individually. 

And those are just my own excuses. There are plenty more where those came from. I’m too weak. I’ve never done that before. It’s too much work. Too risky. I don’t know enough about it. It takes too much time. Costs too much. Hurts too much.

No shit. New things always hurt. So once we’ve exhausted all our excuses, what do we do next? First, we set a brand new declaration and vision for the next 20 years. Don’t think you’ll be here in 20 years? That’s okay. Set one anyway. One that elevates the “aliveness factor” of life for you and determines all your decisions every moment and every day. My declaration?

I’m going to be the best adventure athlete in the world.  And I want you to join me…

Drop me a line!
