Developing A Competitive Mindset with Emily Abbott

Episode 137Brute Strength

This week on the Brute Strength Podcast I’ll be interviewing a four-time CrossFit Games veteran, and total bad ass, Emily Abbott. Emily trains out of MOST Physical Preparation in Calgary, Alberta and has been a dominant force in Canada West since 2014. In this episode we’ll get a more in-depth look into the life of Abbott and getting into things like finding your divine flow, goals vs. intentions, and training less to gain more. Enjoy the show.
