Hunting Fitness – it is something different for each of us, but no matter what it is a primal type of fitness obtained through hardship and mental toughness. How do you think about and approach your hunting fitness?

I was privileged to be on a Podcast a while back with Ben Greenfield, founder of Ben Greenfield Fitness and Kion Supplements Ben is a world class fitness coach, bio-hacker and bow hunter. He is a guest on Joe Rogan’s podcast as well as a friend and advisor to Joe. In 2014, Ben was named as one of the world’s top 100 most influential people in health and fitness, and by 2015, Ben was coaching the world’s top CEO’s, chefs, biohackers, poker players, tennis, motocross and endurance competitors, and professional athletes from the UFC, the NHL, the NBA, the NFL and beyond.

So when I say that his guy is a Fitness Guru, and someone you should follow and connect with to take your hunting fitness to the next level, I am not kidding. Ben and his programs can help anyone develop hunting fitness and in the process improve your quality of life as well as your success in the field.

Here’s the intro from the Podcast, and if you want to listen just click below.

“Hey, it’s Ben Greenfield, and you may know that I actually grew up in North Idaho, Eastern Washington, surrounded by lots of hunters and fishers, fishermen, and I’ve personally been hunting white tailed deer in my backyard for about the past four years.  I’ve been fishing since I was a kid, and we even had podcasts about whether deer meat is healthy, and in the recent podcast if you listened to it, we had the guy from The Art of Manliness on, Brett McKay, and he talked about one way to accomplish the P of being a man, the provision part of providing is to hunt.

My guest on today’s podcast is a guy named Shad Wheeler, and Shad has started a business called , however at the time we recorded this he was with another company, which he’ll tell us a little bit more about, but it’s basically like a hunting and guiding website. 

Shad is actually a friend of mine, he’s a guy who I’ve coached in the past for triathlon, he lives about twenty miles from me, he’s an entrepreneur, he’s a bow hunter, he’s a triathlete, and today, we’re going to be talking about how to build fitness, how to build endurance and how to tap into something new when it comes to human primal movement, specifically via hunting, and one of Shad’s areas of expertise, bow hunting.  So this is going to be a fun podcast.  Shad, thanks for coming on man.
