How an ultra endurance mindset can help you achieve success in work, sports & life.

Listen to the podcast below!


Have you ever felt life was a marathon, that you were just hanging in there by a thread, and didn’t know how you were going to push through, achieve your goals, or get ahead?

If so, then do we have the show for you.

We’ll be taking with Travis Macy, an extremely accomplished ultra-endurance athlete and adventure champion who knows more than a thing or two about grit, and pushing through.

He is the author of The Ultra Mindset: An Endurance Champion’s 8 Core Principles for Success in Business, Sports, and Life, and he holds the record for Leadman, an epic endurance event consisting of a trail running marathon, 50-mile mountain bike race, Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race, 10k road run, and Leadville 100 Run, all above 10,200′ in the Rocky Mountains.

In this episode, we’ll explore the core principles of an Ultra Mindset, and how we can use the lessons learned from extreme endurance racing to make our lives easier, to help us overcome giant hurdles, and help us get to the finish, intact and at peace! It’s great, Travis did all the work, we’ll reap all the rewards!

This one episode will help you find the courage, determination, and discipline…an ultra-mindset to reach for the stars and achieve your dreams…or at the very least, succeed in whatever you’re doing and hopefully without needing to nearly drown, go hypothermic, cross the Sahara, or have your toe nails drilled before 7 AM!

These lessons will help you find greater success at home, at work, in your business, career, as an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, parent (the ultimate ultra marathon!!!) or chasing your dreams!!!
