Iron Crew Podcast

Jan 16, 2019

In this episode, Danny gets a heavy dose of caffeine and positivity when he sits down with owner and founder of Rubel Roasting Coffee.  PJ Rubel shares how he turned his passion for coffee into his very own family business.  They also talk about the squatty potty, coaching 5am fitness classes, and how PJ turned a potentially nightmarish weekend at the 2014 CrossFit Games Regionals into a positive shift in perspective on his day to day life forever.  

Prior to that, Danny talks about how a strong “why” will always create a “how”, applying mindfulness into your daily life, being relentlessly optimistic, and answers a listener’s question on how to minimize anxiety surrounding your early wake up call.
