Show Notes

Ever wondered what it's like to train like a pro football player?

This week, we interviewed Jesse Ackerman who is no stranger to hard work.  He is currently the Head Strength & Conditioning Coach with the Atlanta Falcons, former Assistant Strength & Condition Coach for UT Austin, University of Florida, and Iowa State University, Certified NASM-PEC, NASM-CES, and Trainer for the 1st Battalion, 75 Ranger Regiment (just to name a few). 

His stance and style on training pro-athletes and other high-performance individuals is unique to say the least. The level of passion he brings to his craft, his trainees, and to himself is a rare sight.

"The brain is the greatest limiting factor" he explains while describing that hard work can actually be fun.

He has helped rehabilitate athletes, has countless stories of overcoming career-ending injuries to come out the other side a more humble, hopeful, awe-inspiring being. 

Listen as he explains his system for training pro athletes, and how that system can apply to anyone looking for excellence in their craft. 

It's not "working out"... It's recharging .
