#161 - The New CEO of BPN

2023-01-0901:14:041

Episode #161 In this episode, Nick sits down with BPN’s newly introduced Chief Executive Officer, Kat Thomas. The two go in-depth behind the decision to name Kat as CEO, Nick’s new role within the business he founded, and how this transition happened so naturally. Key discussion points include: - How service and positive impact toward a mission are more important than outcome-driven goals, such as job title.  - The life of a founder and what it requires to bootstrap a business, building from the ground up. - Why ‘brand’ matters and how BPN serves to change lives through the power of messaging and quality supplementation. What makes the best brands different? And how can you apply the lessons of two experienced business founders? Nick and Kat’s conversation will encourage you to go all in on your health, business, and life goals.

Welcome back to the podcast for her second time, elite runner and BPN athlete: Sally McRae! After completing the Choose Strong Project, Sally sits down with Nick to bond over their love for weight training and how their approach to fitness has evolved over the years. Sally reflects on her early career when many viewed strength training as unnecessary for runners and the unique challenges, she faced in pushing back against that notion as a performance athlete. Sally passionately speaks to the perspective that life is more about how we make others feel than simply our physical appearance. This episode goes beyond just recognizing the accolades of human performance but really emphasizes the commonalities we all have as humans, whether in parenthood, insecurities, or how to be strong for life. “Let’s talk about what we’re doing and not what we look like.” - Sally The Choose Strong Project was an endurance-based event in which she ran 507 miles over the course of 81 days, during 5 separate races. She created this project in honor of her late mother, running 1 mile for every month of her mother’s life. For this project Sally ran Bad Water 135, Angles Crest 100, Leadville 100, Wildstrubel 100k, and a double summit of Mt. Whitney. About Sally: Sally McRae is a professional ultra/mountain runner for Nike. Also known as Yellowrunner, Sally often uses her platform to encourage others in their dream journey and to inspire others to live out their lives to the fullest. She is also a mother of two, endurance coach, writer, speaker, and creates content focused on strength training, dedication, and inspiration. She most recently launched her own strength and mental training app: SALLY MCRAE STRENGTH which you can download directly from her website (sallymcrae.com) or Instagram: @yellowrunner  More Resources: BPN Website - Supplements and Apparel: www.bpnsupps.com Nick’s Website: www.nickbare.com Nick’s Instagram: @nickbarefitness Nick’s Youtube: www.youtube.com/user/barelifenutrition Follow Us On Social Media: Instagram: @thebareperformancepodcast Facebook: The Bare Performance Podcast
Episode #156 – After four months of fatherhood, Nick sits down with two BPN dads, Tony Reyes and Adam Klink, to talk about the powerful lessons that come from raising children. They discuss the need to reprioritize their core values since having kids. Nick comments that there are feelings of guilt around how he managed his time as a new father in the early days, and how they’re responsible for teaching their children healthy habits and being good role models.  “I’ve grown more in the last four months than I did in the past 14 years.” - Nick  You do not have to lose your identity in parenthood. There ARE ways to transition into parenting healthily. Hear how fitness can serve as a cornerstone in the life of a parent, the challenges brought upon by periods of transition, and why acceptance is essential to all phases of our lives to be more fulfilled.  More Resources: BPN Website - Supplements and Apparel: www.bpnsupps.com Nick’s Website: www.nickbare.com Nick’s Instagram: @nickbarefitness Nick’s Youtube: www.youtube.com/user/barelifenutrition Follow Us On Social Media: Instagram: @thebareperformancepodcast Facebook: The Bare Performance Podcast
Episode 155 In this solo episode, Nick reveals how crucial committing to a goal is for his life. He explains how success can and should be broken down to the simplicity of a first step, and why focusing on the task in front of you relives the pressure of how large a vision might be. Nick shines light on the fact that many people find reasons to postpone their goals when life gets difficult, which is why commitment can be so powerful. He also admits that there are warning signs to this level of dedication, and how accountability can help prevent burnout. "Sometimes having someone hold you accountable is not to make sure you actually do it, sometimes it's to make sure you don't over-do it." Nick poses the challenge to commit to something--right now-- for 2023 that will be really hard for you. Use this episode to motivate you to commit to something that will grow, stretch, and develop you as a leader, an athlete, and a better human.

Episode #154 – Nick is joined by Leif Babin, former Navy SEAL Platoon Commander and co-author of the NY Times Bestseller: Extreme Ownership. They discuss the most prominent distinctions between military and civilian leaders, how powerful leadership is about considering other people’s perspectives, why simplicity in your communication makes you more impactful, and how ‘silent leaders’ can tend to be the best ones. Nick and Leif also recount gripping stories from their military experiences and how they shaped their future endeavors. “If you interact with other humans in any capacity, you are a leader.” Even without a ‘title,’ you are a leader. Leif passionately speaks to the need to own this responsibility and positively impact the lives of those around you. This episode jumps into practical, inspiring commentary on our lives from two tremendous leaders. About Leif Babin: A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Leif served thirteen years in the Navy, including nine in the SEAL Teams. As a SEAL platoon commander in SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, he planned and led major combat operations in the Battle of Ramadi that helped the “Ready First” Brigade of the US Army’s 1st Armored Division achieve victory. Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War. Leif returned from combat and became the primary leadership instructor for all officers graduating from the SEAL training pipeline. There, he reshaped SEAL leadership training to better prepare the next generation of SEAL officers for the immense challenges of combat. During his last tour, Leif served as Operations Officer and Executive Officer at a SEAL Team where he again deployed to Iraq with a Special Operations Task Force. He is the recipient of the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, and a Purple Heart. Upon his departure from active duty, Leif co-founded Echelon Front, a premier leadership consulting company, where he serves as President, leadership instructor, speaker, and strategic advisor. Echelon Front helps others build their own high-performance winning teams.

Nick begins by recapping the smashing success of BPN's 10th Birthday weekend. Thank you to all who came out for Athletic Club, our pop-up shop, and our VIP after-party! We had people fly in from Colorado, New Jersey, San Diego, even Amsterdam. Thank you! Choosing Your Hard literally applies to every single person, because every person has difficult decisions to make throughout their day. Don't let your mind venture off into the extreme examples of "hard"; such as running a marathon, starting a business by yourself, or chipping away at student loans. Those definitely qualify, but bring it personal, as well. Choosing to read before bed instead of watching a TV show on Netflix, doing the dishes for your spouse when you come home from a long day, or being patient with the chaos of the first week of school. Nick breaks down the mindset of Choosing Your Hard and the benefits that it brings to the longevity and sustainability of your life.
