While knowing your physio is important in living your best everyday life, it is essential for professional athletes. Talking to us today about his time as an Olympic triathlete and beyond, is Greg Bennett, now motivational speaker, corporate trainer, and entrepreneur. We dive in with Greg describing his incredible career, his journey to where he is now, and how he realized that it was time to retire. Greg has a passion for life and gives every opportunity his all, and he explains why this is so good for his (and potentially your!) mental health. We also hear about the state of introspection achieved when doing a triathlon, the thoughts that went through Greg’s head when racing, and what the different triathlon formats are. Greg also shares how has maintained his identity post retiring, how he continuously builds his relationship with his wife through positivity, why helping yourself inspires others to help you, and the importance of grounding yourself in the modern world. We wrap up the episode with some anecdotes about the crazy training regimes Greg did in the '90s, how the approach to an athlete's training has changed, and the importance of nutrition and good sleeping habits from a retired athlete's perspective. For a fascinating discussion, some great tips and tricks on how to get into visualization (no matter the task: race or life event), and the benefits of being resilient, tune in today!
