Building Everyday Champions with Mike Dewar of J2FIT Strength & Conditioning
In episode 66 of Uncharted Performance we are joined by Mike Dewar. Mike is, and try to keep count, Co-Founder and CEO & Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at J2Fit Strength & Conditioning, founder & owner of Barbell CEO, strength coach at NYU, founder of Amateur Aficionado, writer for the very popular BarBend online publication, weightlifting coach, competitive weightlifter, traveler, husband, and cat owner. We go from growing up in Ohio to landing in the big city with little direction but with a sense of rush and great opportunity. Mike is a big believer in using circumstance to drive positive change and creativity. He has been driven by his innate desire to know more, and by knowing more, seeing even more possibilities. As an entrepreneur, it is all about doing something, no matter how small or what it is, but to take action, make mistakes but learn from them, all in with the intention to create momentum. Don’t be hampered by perfection and fail to launch. It doesn’t have to be perfect. As a coach, his passion is to turn everyday people into everyday champions and helping them be the best at what they do, no matter what it is, from marathon runner to corporate CEO. We learn his defining moments, from that first trip on the subway and getting lost to here and now, how to approach uncomfortable decisions, as well as his process of goal setting, aligning business and life goals, and very importantly, how Mike determine priorities amidst his many projects. Besides the insights that Mike shares on the episode, he’s provided us with some awesome training resources for the listeners so make sure to check out the show notes below.
