Susie Chan only started running in her early 30’s as she entered a half marathon with her brother. Since then she has completed 5 Marathon Des Sables as well as a number of other ultras, however as she tells us in this show she runs anything from 1 mile to 100 and as you will find out she does it for the love of running and the love of nature.
Still smoking in 2011 Susie has not always been into running and in this show we dig into some of her motivations and have a great discussion about how and why people get into running, what people can expect and all the great things that come with it. Susie has an awesome energy and I am sure that after listening to this show you will be fully pumped to head out for a run.
Enjoy the show.

For those of you that come to InnerFight you will probably have been coached by “Clarkie”, but for those of you that don’t it is time the world heard from him. Originating from New Zealand Jamie has live in the region for the last 10 years and has a super cool story and relationship with InnerFight as he started as a member, went through our internship program, started handling our on boarding process and now essentially runs the show here!
It is no surprise that a lot of Jamies personality traits are similar to that of his home countries famous rugby team the All Blacks but in this show Jamie shares some of his heritage with us, talks about his upbringing in sport, his “career” in the hospitality industry and one of his rules for life “just be a good person”or better put as “No D**k heads”
Enjoy the show.
Some of you may remember the name "Pete Jacobs” either from episode #468 of the InnerFight podcast back in October last year or from when he won the world Ironman championships in Kona in 2012. When we spoke to Pete in 2018 he talked about coming back to triathlon but only when he was fully healthy. In this show Pete takes us on his journey of what essentially has been a number of years of his body not working optimally, him not feeling great all the time and some quite major struggles.
Pete talks us through various eating methods that he has tried and tested to try and aid his auto immune disease and we spend a good chunk of this shoe on where he is at today with the Carnivore Diet. Listen as Pete talks us through eating up to 2kg of meat a day and nothing else. He is clearly super well read on the subject and gets nice and geeky for us in places.
Possibly the best part of this show is where Pete shares his desire to get back to Kona and from the way he is and has been feeling with his recent adoption of this diet it seems the dream of Kona is very much alive.
The 2020 CrossFit open is just around the corner so who better to sit down with in this weeks show and chat about it than the man himself Riccardo. The great lover of all things CrossFit. Ricci gives us his run down on why you should register for this event, the format of the 2020 seasons, what to expect, how to manage yourself and what to do over the next few weeks to get ready.
The 2020 Open season starts on October 10th and we will be hosting the workouts at InnerFight every Saturday morning. There are once again 5 workouts in the open and this is the qualifying stage for the 2020 CrossFit games. We love the fact that this year CrossFit have brought back the affiliate leader board so we can see different gyms measure up against each other locally and globally.
Bram Connolly knew from a young age that he would serve his country, it’s all he wanted to do. Descending from a “broken home” Bram described himself in his early years as quite a loner and he was happy with that. He walked into the local Australian Army on his 17th birthday and signed up for service perhaps not really knowing that within 2 years he would be in the war zone of Somalia, this was the start of an incredible journey which would later turn in to 2 books that Bram has written about battle and wars. As a teenager and into his 20’s Bram was good at things, he didn’t have to try super hard to get by so didn’t, this all changed when on return from SAS selection in 1994 he was called out by a colleague and exposed in his failure to be recruited to one of the most elite fighting forces in the world, his pledge was to return and to be selected.
Now a family man with an a aiming wife and two children Bram teaches leadership on many levels. He is also the founder of Warrior U and the host of the Warrior U podcast. Bram believes and has demonstrated time and again that positivity is a key to leadership and at the end of this show similar to all of our guests he shares his one piece of advice for life which is simply epic.
Welcome to the new Jan we could or should say here. Yes September is as big a month in the fitness world as Jan is. People are returning from their summer holidays and many have done some serious damage to the fitness goals they had set for the year and realized that they actually only have 4 months left of the year so the emergency chord is being fully yanked. I see it every year and I can’t fight it as I am sure it will happen for years to come. So in this show I share a few top line points on what you should be doing to get things “back on track.”
If you like what you hear drop us a mail to email@example.com and check out how we can help you get better at life. Also as was mentioned in the show please feel free to join us on Saturday 7th September at InnerFight.

April spent her early years outside so it’s no surprise that she has an amazing love for nature. In 2006 she moved to LA and achieved a Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Design having being the top of her class and graduating with honors. She was also the winner of the Art Institute’s annual fashion show and got to show her collection at LA Fashion Week, which is a pretty big deal.
In this show April talks so openly and honestly about her life so far. She is inspiring in so many ways and your final piece of advice at the end of the show is just amazing so please make sure you do not miss it. These are some of the main points we chat about:
- Finding your true calling
- Discovering climbing
- Having a black and white TV
- The impact of social media on life
- Get out there and live
Rules, rules, rules you may say and I will say yes. We need a set of rules for life if we are going to perform optimal and live the very best life we can. Right now the world seems like it is constantly out to distract us, feed us things that seems nice but we do not really need to be eating, give us a number of reasons (excuses) not to go and workout but to do something else, even if that something else is just sitting on the couch watching Netflix.
If we don’t have a set of rules for ourselves to live by, a set of non negotiables then there is every chance we all slip into the brutal rut of eating things that do not take us toward our goals, staying up late and missing out on our sleep or missing a workout and generally losing track of lie in more ways than one. I hope that this show will leave you thinking about what things in your life just need to be non negotiable and you will stick with them.
Justin LoFranco is the founder of morning chalk up a company that he started just over 3 years ago with the goal of sharing news from around the world with the CrossFit community and a company that he left his “career job” to pursue. No one would have thought that just 3 years later Justin and his team would be announcing the huge changes to CrossFit and the 2019 CrossFit Season. They have become the news channel that everyone goes to when they want to know what’s going on in CrossFit.
We all travel a lot more than we used to and it is epic. However along with our increased travel is the increased dilemma of what to eat and what training to do when you are traveling. Then of course you have a meltdown on what to pack, how many sets of running kit and so the list goes on.This year I have been on half a dozen trips to various countries ranging from the French Alps to the beauty that is Malawi. For the most part I have eaten clean food (yeah I have had some cheats which I talk about in this show) and on all trips I have trained in some shape or form. For those of you that have been following the show for a while you will pretty much know I have a rule of only taking hand luggage and it has to be 10kg or less. So here are my tips in the hope that you guys can continue to enjoy travel but travel light, eat well and stay active on your trips.
