PODCAST - JAMES NEWBURY

PODCAST - JAMES NEWBURY

Today we’re joined by James Newbury. James is a CrossFit games athlete, four-times Australia’s Fittest Man, a multiple Iron Man finisher, and now a member of the Australian Bobsleigh Team - as you can imagine, with that mixed bag we had a lot to talk about.

James may be one of the fittest men on earth, but for us it was his philosophies for what he does when he’s not training that really gave us pause for thought. There is plenty for you, our audience, to get stuck into during this episode.

We talk about everything from being fit for purpose and what that really means, stoicism, to appearing on a Men’s Health cover after a month of being out the gym and living off of a sherpa stew - a great conversation with some absolute gems from Aldo. Enjoy.

When it comes to choosing your rig or squat rack, there are so many questions to ask yourself: Where will you put it? How much will you spend? When will you use it? 

But one of the most important, yet often overlooked factors, is the finish of your rig. How you choose to finish a Rig or Rack will dictate many characteristics and ultimately, how you use it.
