Lawyer, executive coach, professional speaker, blogger, Team Betty Ironman athlete, TEDx presenter, entrepreneur, published author, On Wall Street contributor and Recruiter, avid Toastmaster, extremely early riser, and the list goes on! All these and more make up one of our favorite guests thus far: Elizabeth McCourt. 

Elizabeth owns and operates McCourt Leadership Group. She consults, coaches, and advises high-performing executives along with their teams, with a focus on exectuive athletes. In her own words, "If elite athletes have coaches to improve their performance, why not take this approach to business?"

Elizabeth has recently received even more notoriety for her TEDx talk titled Why You Should Spill Your Secretswhere she describes the relieving process of releasing a lingering secret in her life, and explains all the physical, mental, and emotional reasons why you should do the same.

We expand on this concept in our interview, however this conversation is honestly as far-reaching and diverse as they come! We cover topics including:

  • how to become more emotionally intelligent
  • how to conquer writer's block
  • gaining more self-confidence
  • the most sought-after leadership qualities
  • avoiding the snooze button trap
  • dealing with horrible bosses
  • what your facial features say about you. 

So get ready to take your leadership skills to the next level, unlock new motivation to jolt out of bed and tackle the day, and learn the secrets to becoming an amazing, proficient speaker! Or if nothing else, after realizing how accomplished and amazing Elizabeth is, you'll be left wondering what the hell you've been doing with your life. That should be motivation enough!

*Required upon listening: You must share one secret that you have been holding with one other person. Then share your experience with us and Elizabeth below or on our social media. We'd love to hear your story!

Have you ever wondered what it takes to become a member of the world's elite? Not just what the process looks like, but the actual work, blood, sweat, tears, and physical turmoil required to infiltrate such a team? 

Meet Wes Kennedy, resident expert on all things Special Forces and transforming mere mortals into super human, tactical, elite, physical specimens ready to conquer the world's deepest, darkest missions.

Wes spent 8 years in the Canadian Forces, 5 of those as a Special Forces Operator. Now as the CEO and founder of Elite Training Programs, he prepares Special Forces candidates mentally and physically for selection into their respective SF school. Wes also works with para-military, police and fire, Crossfit athletes, and everyday Joes.

In his own words, "As I train people for physical performance goals, I incorporate aspects of assessment, nutrition coaching, stress management and lifestyle practices, as well as individualized program design so that each athlete experiences much more than just great fitness results.”

In this episode Wes uncovers all aspects of prepping for selection including training protocols, nutrition, and the mentality required. Wes shares what the tactical training community has historically done wrong and how to fix it. We also discuss Crossfit’s role in the tactical fitness space and he answers rumors about steroids in the SF community.

So grab your ruck sack, lace up your combat boots, throw in your head phones and learn how to become a more tactical version of yourself on this episode of The Too Fit Podcast with guest, Wes Kennedy.

The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod

Mar 15, 2016

“Forget Results. Enjoy the Moment.” That is the mantra behind the revolutionary fitness movement created by today’s guest Jarron Vosburg. Beat-Active is fundamentally changing not only the way people exercise, but how they view exercise.

In his own words, “Beatactive designs an audio workout experience, fusing vocal guidance, custom programming, and powerful electronic soundtracks.” Jarron has been working with not only the largest DJ’s in the electronic music scene, but also with physicists, mathematicians, and strength and conditioning specialists to systematically coordinate the physical movements of the exercise routine with the architecture of the music.

All you need for a session of Beat-Active is their app, headphones, a little bit of space, and approximately 20 minutes. Oh, and the right mindset: forget everything around you. Forget about sets, reps, calculating weight percentages, gym memberships, combating weather and traffic associated with the gym, etc. All you have to do is press play, follow the guided movement instructions, and… enjoy the moment.

In this episode we provide you with access to Jarron’s background and the story of how Beat-Active came to fruition. We discuss the future of the fitness industry, how to connect with people that seem out of your reach, the challenges and struggles entrepreneurs face every day, and how Jarron has overcome his largest obstacles.

At this time Beat-Active is set for launch in April of 2016, but if you would like to try the free beta-test workout, visit Beat-Active to begin your audio workout experience.

As always, enjoy this podcast brought to you by yours truly, The Too Fit Guys. Subscribe, leave us a review, and continue your journey to becoming Too Fit.
