Ruby Chase - DJ Your Life!
Ruby was one of the last interviews I did before accidentally breaking my skull two and a half years ago. Ruby is an artist, musician, performer, and life curator. Her love and adoration for life pours our of everything she shares in this interview. I had been saving it and because of the intensity of my recovery it’s taken me 2.5 years to finally release it. Listening to it again I felt moved and inspired to be alive. Much as I said about the last episode, I feel like this was a gift from Ruby and my past self to my present self, and I am very grateful. I loved all of this and I think you will too. Enjoy!

Ryan Estrada - Create, create, create!
Today’s Life Athlete is Ryan Estrada. This is Ryan’s second appearance on the podcast and we did it shortly after my skull fracture while he was in Bali. Ryan is nearly impossible to categorise as he’s a creative whirlwind. He throws himself at live and creative projects with a mix of youthful enthusiasm and mature technical efficiency. From Graphic Novels, to Radio plays, to filmmaking, Ryan has challenged himself and accomplished a lot. This episode is a ballad to anyone wanting to start a thing. I hadn’t heard it since we first recorded it nearly two years ago and as I’m taking on new projects now I found it to be a gift from Ryan and my past self to me now. It is also a gift for you and I hope it helps you live a fuller, more delightful, and creative life.

Nemanja Sonero - Shadow, Masculine, Feminine, and life.
Today’s Life Athlete is Nemanja Sonero. Nemanja and I were linked on line due to our love and commitment to Men’s work, archetypes and human empowerment in general. We connected immediately and recorded a podcast episode almost a year ago. Due to personal reasons related to my recovery from injury I haven’t posted anything in that time and going back over that episode I wasn’t happy with it. Nemanja was wonderful but I was talking too much in my opinion and I wanted to hear more from him. Nemanja was gracious enough to record a new episode last week and it was delightful exactly what I wanted to listen to actually. I am more than pleased to share this conversation with you, enjoy!

Dr. Gertrude Tavernier - Maeve- Self pleasure, connecting with self.
Today’s guest Life Athlete is Dr. Gertrude Tavernier. Gertrud always pursued the philosophy of 'a healthy mind in a healthy body' and she started to see that for many people a missing piece was a healthy sex life, and so she built a tool for women to help foster a healthy relationship with sex. The elegant sensual audio app Maeve offers women, and couples, a hands-on tool for healthy intimate pleasure. It is bluntly speaking a masturbation app but it is also so much more. This is only one slice of what this amazing human is up to but it is the primary focus of this conversation. When I first heard about this project, I told Gertrude that I wanted to lend my voice to it and this is a start. Because of her commitment to help people live more connected lives, Gertrude has embarked on a journey she had never envisioned and discovered a deeper connection with herself, her mother, and her purpose.

In this conversation Chris shows a mastery and a humility that is a breath of fresh air. Chris wasn't made in a lab. He is the product of hard work, struggle, purpose, and perseverance. His commitment to Constantly Pivot, Constantly Move forward, and Constantly Iterate has made him a powerhouse.

Ryan is The founder of Inner Leadership Academy, Own your Stage, and Inbody Fit and has also been working with the Contentment Foundation. He is a dynamic, charismatic, jovial man in the body of a superhero. This conversation was had nearly 10 months ago and was fascinating to listen to again as it was deep, vulnerable, and not the typical conversation between two large, good looking, athletic men. This wasn’t typical locke room talk. We dive into some topics that I rarely hear people discuss around the preconceptions people have of people that look like him, the pressure to be happy and the price of privileges that neither of us would trade, but do come at a cost. Ryan is a gem of a human and it was a pleasure to have him on the show. Enjoy!

Derek Loudermilk - Comfort in the discomfort - The Life Athletics Podcast Episode 198
Originally this conversation was meant to be released as episode 201 and was recorded well in advance BUT host Nik Wood's life threatening injury in August 2019 had us record a new episode 201 with Derek as it felt right to acknowledge that event and that landmark appropriately. There's so much gold in this episode and so we are excited to be releasing it now. Derek is an astounding individual who constantly pushes to his edge with grace and good humour. The many and varied chapters in his life have prepared him for adventure and accomplishment in every area of his life!

Nik Wood - My Near Death and Rebirth - The Life Athletics Podcast Episode 199
This is a special episode as it is the last of a 200 episode cycle and the final word before a new chapter. We haven’t published an episode in quite some time and it is also a special episode because of the reason why. I nearly died 4 months ago. I’d like to say at this time that I’ll be talking about some fairly graphic and passably traumatic subjects and so if that doesn’t feel like something you can handle at this time, please turn this off and go do something else. The journey has been profound and people all over the globe have shown their love and support through one of the most harrowing times of my existence and I wanted to share the story with you as well as the lessons and takeaways.

Paul Tracogna - Excellence at the Circus - The Life Athletics Podcast Episode 197
Today’s guest Life Athlete is Paul . Paul fascinated me the moment I met him. He’s the one of the best in the world at what he does and by his own admission, most people won’t know who he is. Paul has been an aerialist circus performer for over 15 years and he and his wife recently won a Bronze Clown at the prestigious International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo put on by the Princess of Monaco. Our first conversation immediately went to topics such as excellence, dedication, and the experience of being the best in the world at your craft. In a world of social media and attention seekers it was nourishing to talk to someone whose primary motivations were so in line with the intentions of Life Athletics, to play his game to the best of his ability for the satisfaction that comes from experiencing a job well done. We also spoke about how the skills to do one thing well are conceptually similar to the skills needed to do something else well, which is the whole point of this podcast. As Paul says, "It’s very very difficult to achieve perfection but you can strive towards excellence”. We recorded this episode in a room in Bali that felt super quiet at the time and yet there are roosters crowing, dogs barking, It’s not perfect but many of the things Paul says are excellent and I hope you can push aside the occasional background noise and enjoy!

Imaya Sabine is a human experience student & expert. She breaks down esoteric teachings and psychological insights into actionable, everyday life practices for happiness, mental health, and emotional equilibrium. Diagnosed with depression and hospitalized for her mental health at age 20, she decided to leave the world of modern medicine and psychotherapy behind and travel far and wide in search for real answers. After a decade of searching and experimenting, she has not only healed her own mental illnesses, she has become a model and mentor for a new kind of well-being and freedom that the world is just beginning to recognize is our future. Imaya demonstrates how our human experience and spiritual path are one and the same, and how we can use our daily life for spiritual awakening just as much as a yoga or meditation practice could. She brings spirituality down to Earth, as well as expands the current limitations of psychotherapy by recognizing that all our mental and emotional neuroses are rooted in the forgetting of who we really are.

Aaron is a friend who I’ve known for years and he’s a Transformational Sex and Relationship Coach, Facilitator and Speaker. He came from a childhood of chaos, and dysfunction and at a young age completely lost faith in humanity.

His soul journey brought him close to death numerous times on both the high seas and his travels to remotes places across the globe. Through these experiences he realized that life is not about personal achievements and egotistic desires, but rather about deep soul remembrance and fulfilling one’s dharma. He has learned from the great masters in the fields of sexuality and transformation, including earning a master’s degree in spiritual psychology. Now he helps his clients remember who they truly are in order to awaken their inner erotic wisdom. Aaron went from being a licensed captain navigating ships to a sexual behavior and movement specialist navigating souls. His workshops, retreats, sessions and speeches help humans integrate body movement, psychology, sexuality and spirituality. He speaks and shares honestly and transparently so that others can unlock the real reason for their human existence. Aaron is now fulfilling his own dharma and has dedicated his life to helping humanity wake up and remember their soul’s unique gift. www.AaronKleinerman.com
