Jay Schroeder

Understanding the Evo Code

"You must be willing to sacrifice to the same level you wish to achieve. And we all talk about things that we want to reach, and it goes for pro athletes and it goes for the 85 or 90 year old man or woman."

Jay Schroeder, creator of The Evolution Code, was paralyzed from the chest down early on which led him on a path to curing his own paralysis. Jay has been perfecting his nervous system training over 40 years. Jay spoke about the origins of EVO, shared a few examples of how MLB’s Stephen Strasburg and NHL’s Matt Barzal use EVO to perform better, and how focusing on training any individual muscle is flat out wrong. From paralysis to being the only non-team employee to get a world series ring in 2019 from the Washington Nationals, Jay has made his mark on athlete training.

Anne Mahlum

Doing COVID Right

(From Utah Business): "When COVID-19 struck, Anne Mahlum, founder and CEO of studio fitness company [solidcore], and her team immediately began to provide online workout classes. The willingness to confront the reality of the situation and temporarily close all in-person studio classes, and to move to an online platform, instilled trust with [solidcore]’s customers. As [solidcore] begins to carefully reopen many of their fitness studios, the trust built online has been critical." (We spoke with Anne Mahlum on  S1:E18 of the Sport Lifestyle Podcast)
