Noah Ohlsen on Mindset and Perspective

Episode 191Brute Strength


Noah Ohlsen is a five-time CrossFit Games athlete turned two-time Brute Strength podcast guest (but you may not see the latter in his Instagram bio).

Once known for his perfect hair and boyish smile, Noah has made a name for himself in the CrossFit community, proving time and time again what it means to come back from setbacks in the sport. Even with a few unlucky moments in his CrossFit Games career, he’s managed to place within the Top 10 in four of his last five Games appearances.

In this week’s episode, Noah recaps his experience at this year’s Wodapalooza. He gets honest about staying motivated in his training and how it’s changed since CrossFit officials announced changes to sanctioned events.
