76: Scott McGee - On Grit, Resilience, and Having an Unconquerable Soul
< 1 day ago
Scott McGee is a dedicated father and husband, professional good guy/guardian, loyal friend, CrossFitter, and eternal optimist with an open mind and an unconquerable soul - that’s directly from his website. He’s a police officer, serving Santa Monica, CA as a detective, beat officer and a member of the SWAT team. He’s one of the three hosts of the popular CrossFit podcast - the WODCast Podcast. He’s also recently created a blog called The Sisu Way where he writes regularly. And he’s husband plus a father of two awesome boys. Scott’s physical presence is awesome. He’s imposing… driving a black SUV with tinted windows, wearing all black clothes, black sunglasses, bald… and at 6’4” and muscular, you’re immediately confronted by his presence. If you look no further, you might think you’re in for trouble just seeing him pull up. He’s definitely one person that you want on your team! But if you take the time to get to know more about this man’s man, you quickly see that his heart, spirit and commitment to serving others, are as large and imposing as his body. He’s a big, committed softy - that will go above and beyond, do whatever it takes, go to the ends of the earth and back, to do something to support someone else or to ease someone way. This comes through for him both as a police officer, where he is called upon to help others, regardless of their opinion of him, and also as a father, where he was challenged with a yet-to-be born son who had to fight every step of the way just to be born. Scott doesn’t know the word quit or surrender. He’s a survivor, a leader, someone who pulls you up just by his presence in your life. He’s got a lot to give to the world, and a lot of stories to tell during this podcast that will touch, move and inspire you to never give up. Such an honor to have him on the show and to call him a friend. Welcome… Scott McGee. Enjoy!
