(#277) Jason Khalipa, World Champion Athlete, Entrepreneur and Author of the new book As Many Reps As Possible, joins the podcast this week to discuss the winning mindset that has made him so successful in his many endeavors.

Jason Khalipa is a CrossFit World Champion, first-time book author, and lifelong competitor. He's a devoted father of two and CEO and founder of NCFIT, a global company aimed at making fitness effective, fun, and accessible.

It should be stated that while I am not a Cross-Fitter (I'm a weightlifter and kettlebell practitioner), I fully enjoyed this chat learning about the mental framework that has made Jason so successful in business and athletics.

While Jason's success is remarkable, he's extremely humble and open in sharing the winning mindset that has made him unstoppable in business and life.
