The Invictus Mindset ft. CJ Martin

Episode 85Brute Strength


This week on the Brute Strength Podcast I’ll be interviewing CJ Martin, the mastermind behind CrossFit Invictus. As a coach CJ believes that the psychology of sport and fitness play a vital role in any program. This year we’ll see 3 teams and 6+ individuals at Regionals all coming out of CrossFit Invictus. In this episode we’ll be getting into a few of the things that have lead CJ and his brand to new heights as well as a few takeaways for athletes and gym owners including developing a competitor mindset, visualization, coping with failure, and building a winning culture. Enjoy the show!
