Time. It’s our only limited & non-renewable resource.

If you’re an entrepreneur or engineer, it can be tough to set aside time for exercise when there’s always an email to respond to or a feature to write. If you’re an athlete, recovery can often fall by the wayside when your mind is fixed on seeing results.

We speak with Matt Dixon, founder of Purple Patch Fitness, a top endurance performance coaching company based in San Francisco. He is an expert in optimizing the lives of both time-starved athletes and knowledge workers. He was one of the first coaches to prioritize recovery and nutrition for elite athletes during a time when they were an afterthought.

In this episode, you'll discover:

  • The symptoms of underperformance
  • Which biohacks (i.e cryotherapy) are legit or overhyped
  • The difference in mindset between training and just working out
