Silence from all other triathlon podcast so far in 2018.......
We are back and better in 2018!!!!!
This week we are talking to Maximus Jones, to kick start the "New Year, New Me" trend. Max is a part-owner of Elevate Sports Performance Center out in Las Vegas. He is the director of fitness at the center but this guy wears several hats. We chop it up over his history in endurance sports and how he plans on getting athletes to get healthy and stay healthy in 2018. Follow him @maximus__jones His company is here -->>> www.elevatespc.com
Follow "The Freds" on Instagram @thefredtriathletes Also those amazing youtube videos at --->> www.youtube.com/channel/UCSbG6EIeO8DEZZ4X4Msw1jA
As a first year pro I have no idea who to believe. Every person who has every tested positive say they never took any. How am I suppose to have people to look up to and look for guidance? I know Lucas and have raced against him after his positive at Placid. Was I racing a clean athlete or not? I don't know. It was a small prize purse but Lucas won money at Boston Triathlon and I got second to him and less prize money. Will I every see that back? Probably not.
Forgot to post about the Steve Mantell episode This week we have Steve Mantell on the podcast. We talk about his first two years as a professional triathlete and some of the lessons he has learned. His work/life balance that he seems to be figuring out and if he is the fastest athlete under 5'5.
After all that Ernie and I talk about the new elite development program that is being built at ASU.
Then this week is all Tony!!
This week we have triathlete/engineer Tony Smoragiewicz. After educating my on the inner workings of the Specialized wind tunnel (yea his part time job) we talk about his early years in triathlon. We move onto a discussion about Michigan and why he put triathlons on the back burner for a couple years. Then finally about his explosive return to triathlon ending with a top 10 at a World Cup race. Follow Tony @tsmorz on Instagram or teamtonyusa.com
Switched it up this week on the grind. We interview, Elliot Bassett, a professional triathlon coach. We chat it up how he got his start in coaching and how he progressed to where he is now. (And why he is so damn hard to find) He shares with us some details of the "Summer of Glory" with Ben Hoffman. He also gives some advice for first year pros out there and to some of the coaches as well.
Then it is the Return of "Ask Ernie". I ask Ernie Mantell about the biggest news in our sport....Gwen and the move to the marathon.
