Rich Roll

Ultra Everything

episode 47


Did you hit the gym today? Good!

Our guest Rich Roll did as well, but he may have stayed a little longer...

As one of the Top 25 fittest men in the world(!) according to Men's Fitness magazine, Rich does not do anything halfway. A former lawyer who changed his life after one fateful and frightening walk up the stairs, he has become a popular podcaster and a #1 bestselling author with Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming One of the World's Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself. Oh, and I guess we should mention that he once completed the Epic 5 Challenge—performing five ironman-distance triathlons on five Hawaiian islands in under one week.

Hear how ultra endurance is inevitably linked to ultra focus and why Rich credits mindfulness for keeping him moving when it' may seem impossible.
