2. The Elite Athlete Mindset w/ Ben Bergeron

CrossFit Games champion coach

Ben Bergeron is one of the most successful coaches in CrossFit, having led athletes to multiple world championships. He’s also the founder of one of the most well-known CrossFit gyms in the country, CrossFit New England. I wanted to talk to Ben because his coaching methodology is about mindset. It’s a huge component of his two books, “Chasing Excellence” and “Unlocking Potential,” and his content at CompTrain. During our conversation, Ben and I discussed mental capacity, the spectrum of mind fitness from victim to warrior, adapting the elite athlete mindset to everyday life, the futility of anger, and other topics. Ben is a longtime friend, and I enjoyed catching up on these subjects.

RARE SENSE | Mind Fitness
RARE SENSE aims to openly talk about all aspects of mental health, including difficult discussions with practitioners, sufferers, and others. Join us as we explore the landscape of mental treatment and training, all in the uncommon pursuit of mind fitness.
The podcast is hosted by Chris Irwin, a Navy SEAL veteran who struggled for over a decade with chronic mental and physical illness after serving in the military. Chris utilizes the expertise he gained during that journey to dive deep into tough topics while being completely vulnerable and open about his own experiences and struggles. These are the conversations about mental health we must have in the modern age.
