Doug Reflects on the Shared Experiences of Veterans

"I want to share and just take a few minutes to share with some stories. And whether you're active duty, reserve, guard, we all have common experiences and it's just the love of the quote as you would war stories. The things that we go through, whether it be a boot camp drill instructor, whether it be, you know, your first generation squadron commander. You know, these are stories that bind those of us who've served together. And for our veterans out there who may be watching this podcast or if you're even if you're not a veteran, there's some things that I want you to be very proud of. I want you to know the kind of people that serve. There's many times in our country's history in which the younger generation is looked at as with scorn or disrespect that they don't have it together, the young people don't get it. But folks, I'm going to tell you the young people that go into our military get it. And we've had a lot of problems with the recruitment. We've had a lot of problems with a lot of things like, but the ones who come and start our country are some of the best around. I want to share just a few stories of just the folks that I got to serve with. I mean, in my time in the reserves, I'll just start here. And because, you know, always active beauty, it's understood, and I'm an active duty. And that's your day to today oxidation. But the reservist, I want to highlight as well as being a reservist for the last 20 plus years. I mean, you have to go and drill at least one time a month. So typically the first weekend of the month, you have two weeks out of the year. Depending on how your reserve duty entails. And I will guarantee you every time that something's going to happen at your house on that weekend, something where your job is going to go wrong, something, you're just going to be there to distract you. If you want to have a distraction, then know that your drill weekend is coming up and I guarantee it's going to happen. The water heater is going to break. Your kids are going to have get sick, your wife's going to get sick, then all going to run off. Some things going to happen, but yet you still have to show up. You still have to keep focus, and you have to learn and do your job. And that's what reservists and guardsmen do and active duty to do it every day.

Steve Gray, Former FBI Agent, Describes His Time With the Bureau

"So you're hunting down terrorists in New York, sorry, you're hunting down spies in New York, North Korea, Chinese, talk about the rest of your time inside the bureau, Steve. Yeah, sure. So the rest of my time was spent basically working in the JTT, which is the joint terrorism task force with the NYPD. We worked basically covert surveillance, which meant that we were basically on the street acting as somebody else, meaning that we never only it was a police officer. We never identified ourselves as FBI agents. We were always identifying ourselves as somebody different. That was able to enable us to keep our cover why basically got as close to these terrorism suspects as we could. From there, I worked criminal division. I worked bank fraud and complex financial scams from there. I went on to work within the operations center, which is basically the heartbeat of the New York office. Along the way, I became a firearms instructor. I was the team leader of the evidence response team, but I think that my time in the operations center working within the operations center was what really opened my eyes to what was going on within the FBI and the fact that this bureau has changed 100%.

"I'll tell you this, though, Sam, so like you said, and I don't know, these are like, I mean, I say this in all due respect. But these people are like maybe back bitches. But anybody that would tell you that you're swing is like not going to hold up or you're back's going to get hurt or whatever bullshit like your swing is awesome, man. Like tell me, I mean, you said that you learned how to hit certain shots like whatever. I mean, I teach people golf. You have a great golf swing and I mean, someone that would say that would just look because you're, you know, whatever your flexible you're young and getting to serve positions or whenever that old people can. But tell me about how you learned to just swing the club in general. Was it money games? Like you just built it under pressure doing that as a kid or did you have an instructor? Yeah, well, never had a lesson in my life. You know, it was a good athlete, every sport, really. And I just had a coordination and I tried to step for the game, and I thought it just makes sense if I want to hit this is strictly what I do if I want to hit a cut, line up left and swing left. I want to hit a draw. Why don't I write and swim right? And that's kind of what I do. That was amazing. The other day. And I do exactly this when I'm swinging it bad. He said he goes on the range and he hits tons of big cuts and big draws to just neutralize his fling and I really like that a lot.

JK Simmons Looks to Be Working Hard For His Possible Oscar Campaign

"Point I'm trying to make is J. K. Simmons. You know, listen, yes, he looks good for a man. He's 60 goddamn 7. My father died at 61. I'm going to be 16 a few months. I can't look that way anymore without chemical help. You know, I love the guy's a good actor. No doubt about it. I think, well, I know. He probably thinks he's in line for an Oscar nomination for playing Fred marks in being the ricardos. He was very good. That movie is fantastic. And if you got nominated, I wouldn't care because it was a great movie. And I love the movie he did when he played the music instructor with the kid with the drums. Sorry, I can't think. You know what I'm talking about? It was unbelievable that movie. Oh my God. Whiplash, whiplash with Miles Teller, Jay kids, J. K. Simmons playing the music instructor. And Miles Teller playing the drummer, trying to get things right. And J. K. Simmons is not accepting any bullshit at all with the tempo and the speed. It's a brilliant movie, and it ends on such a note that, oh my God, it's brilliant. And that is much as J. K. Simmons work. That really brought him into the forefront of everything. That movie. So either way, he thinks he's been told he feels he's heard. He's in line for an Oscar nomination for being the Ricardo's. So as people must have told him, hey, Jay Kate, get out there more, show yourself. What is it you like to do? You're a health nut, getting the gym, post pictures on Instagram. I'm not much for Instagram. JK, you've got to do it. It's the rave. Do you have TikTok? No. Get to get, that's what's happening, guys. Okay, that's what's happening. The problem is, is we've seen too much of J. K. Simmons already on those God damn insurance commercials. And nobody wants to see grandpa, you know, was a tank top on ripped to shit with great chest hair, except if those men are in their 70s, like Arnold Schwarzenegger and sliced alone, both of whom probably guided J. K. Simmons on how to properly use steroids and human growth hormone to look his most ridiculous best.

The Left's Woke Indoctrination of the Military With Nick Freitas

"It would be seriously remiss of me if I didn't ask you this question given your background. So my background, so I'm an immigrant, a legal immigrant. I naturalized in 2012, ended up in The White House working for president Trump. But for about the last decade, I had quite a close relationship with Bragg. I've been teaching as a guest instructor on the Q course, the 18 alpha officers course, and also warrant offices, the 18 alpha course as well. The one 81 80 alpha as well. And I love it. And I love those guys, especially when you're talking to warrants, you know, who've had 9, 9 tools in the sandbox. You're not teaching them anything. You're standing there with a card rate just listening to what they have to say. But given that association, what we've witnessed in the last 16 months, your well plugged in with your brotherhood back at bragging elsewhere. Your reaction, your comments, to what is politely turned, the work efficacy of the American military, what we've seen in terms of the pride flag being flown over the air force recruits in that recent Twitter ad, Mark milley saying, yes, we have I'm white and we have to understand white rage. How bad is it? What are you hearing and how concerned are you as a former operator? Well, people are people are very frustrated because they feel like I saw this tweet today and they were talking about the navy pushing for safe spaces. And like, you know, it used to be that the safe space, the military was responsible for was the United States and keeping it safe from foreign militaries and foreign threats. Now all of a sudden, the military is once again become a Petri dish for social engineering. For the left. And there's a lot of frustration because again, if you go into the military and I think especially certain careers in the military that you know are going to put you in a great deal of danger. There's a certain expectation that you're going to have a strong grip on reality because you don't get to play the games that we do in the sociology class at Cal Berkeley when it gets to the battlefield. Things like biology matters, reality matters. And when you start to ignore that, people die from that. That's not a, this is not the typical Elizabeth Warren where if you don't agree for every regulation she likes, you want people to die. No, we operate in an environment where people die when we don't recognize reality. If you deny reality that'll cost.

"Weekend, someone came to my house, a young kid, he is going to be a senior this fall in the local high school, and he had this whole little pamphlet that he had printed out, advertising himself as a babysitter and as a swim instructor, and as a lifeguard, if you were having a pool party or anything like that, and I thought, how great is that? You know, he's going door to door in the neighborhood. Handing these things out, good for him, a little entrepreneur in the making. And this is what makes this country work, right? We need more of that. We need young people out there working. We don't want them saddled with these debts, but somebody's got to sit down and have these hard conversations right now. When you sign up for $75,000 a year, you better, you better make sure that you can make it back. So you can't graduate with a nothing GPA in many cases, a lot of these students, and that's what's really tragic about it. They're not even graduating. Kind of feels like malpractice. Why are you lending money to kids in many cases, you may know already. They don't have a shot. It actually graduating. Maybe they can't do the work, but we're giving them money anyway because that's the American way. I don't think so.

Why Does the Left Even Talk About Guns? Kurt Schlichter Weighs In

"Why are these people even talking about guns? Because none of them are firearms instructors, none of them are forensic pathologists because I thought you can't even know what a woman is unless you're a biologist cut. So why do they shut up? Well, that's a great question. And I was informed by them that they love science, which would mean that you love facts and objective data. And you would think that if you're going to build a policy, you would want to build it on a solid foundation of technical knowledge so that you could get the policy right. But they don't know, they talk anyway, which indicates to me that they don't care. Because it's not about the kind of gun, they want to ban all guns. Their goal is confiscation of weapons and the disarmament of the American

Pres. Trump: We Must Safely Bear Arms Due to the Existence of Evil

"And it's the presence of evil as president Trump put it during his speech Friday in Houston, it's the existence of evil that should allow people law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. But the existence of evil in our world is not a reason to disarm law abiding citizens who know how to use their weapon and can protect a lot of people. The existence of evil is one of the very best reasons to arm law abiding citizens. And that is why one of the core missions of the NRA is to train prepare and equip responsible American men and women with the knowledge and tools they need to defend themselves. Their families and their communities have to defend their communities and their families. Every single year the NRA's 125,000 certified instructors, these are highly trained, very, very capable people. They train an incredible 1 million Americans to be safer gun owners, ready to act when the situation calls. Incredible job. Isn't the contrast between Joe Biden and Donald Trump? Stunning,

"instructor" Discussed on Aviation Careers Podcast

"Now one of the things that I think that's really important though is people are going to ask, can I get through this without getting my multi instructor? Of course, you can. But I highly recommend getting it. And what's really neat, just like you said, a lot of these clients will take you on some really cool trips, you know, as you know, they don't want to be alone or whatever. And it's really neat. The other thing and you touched upon this is that when you're getting ready for your interview, having your multi engine instructor helps you a lot because in the interview process, they're going to ask you about your VMC. What VMC and VMC G and those type of things V one. And they're going to go into those type of questions, which will have touched upon when you're looking at your multi engine rating and your multi engine instructor rating, especially. And of course, the other big one in my mind, it's a lot of fun. I think it's really cool. I do like the fact that a lot of people you're flying with like the twin, they like that redundancy like the fact that they're over water and they get to fly and not worry about losing one engine because if you lose one, you got the other one out there. I've lost three engines so far. Two in a single one in a multi. And the one that was in a multi engine wasn't that big of a deal because we had another one. And just took our time and we had to shut the engine down because we had some flames coming out of it. But that's a lot different than single engine aircraft. And that's why that fun factor comes in because you have some comfort there. Don't get me wrong, we can have issues where a multi engine can cause you to go down and it could be an prop over speed is a good example. I had a customer client that actually came on as a guest. And he told me that he says Carl, you know, it's still, you can have a problem because he's actually he was with the coast guard. He had to fish somebody out of the water with a prop over speed and could make it to their destination..

Third thing on the list is loud often explicit explicit laden, unexpected explanations during flight training. There's no place for that in any kind of a professional setting. I mean, I keep going back to a doctor, boy if I went into a doctor and he came in and just started using inappropriate language, I think I would just get up and leave. You know, it might be effective for some students, but I would say the 90% of the people are going to be turned off or they're going to turn off their listening mindset when you start doing that. So there's just no place for it. And you've got to respect for your audience. And that's all I got to say about that. Yeah, the other part of that is that we've had a few people ask questions or write in and tell us of a significant scenario where they were scared. And we both believe it's probably because the instructor was also scared or afraid or timid. And that's real. I mean, this is real. We are in a risky business.

Trucking is a pretty rough job for long hauls. It means sleeping in a caught behind the front seats. All those hours of sitting behind the wheel can lead the blood clots. Plus you're driving around the seventy foot long vehicle dangerous enough leads to different horns. Pamela williams is a truck driving instructor with dnc training academy in jackson mississippi.

They'll work forty hours and bring home four hundred dollars. I could go out here in a week and make a thousand dollars a quick thousand dollars doing something that i like to do. That's good a lot of the retail and restaurant. Jobs typically held by women were much more likely to vanish during the pandemic. Some trucking jobs also disappeared early last year. When everyone went on lockdown but demand for drivers started skyrocketing soon after as online shopping surged. That's led to higher pay which is attracted a lot more people including women. The number of female truck drivers has jumped almost double digits in the last year. According to the us labor department's

"Mary what led you to write this book. I mean others have written about this but This this obviously is something that has taken a lot of your time. Why did you focus specifically on the six thousand nineteen project. Well it was the latest History fall of lies. I had written the howard zinn book which emerged from my experience as a college instructor for twenty years when i saw the corruption of education and i learned about howard sin and so my book on howard zinn came out in twenty nineteen right around the same time that's sixteen nineteen project came out and actually day apart and i saw the sixteen nineteen project and i started reading it. And after i had written the book on howard's then i thought well can't get much worse but in its own unique way the sixteen nineteen project maybe worse especially because it's being adopted for the elementary school grades so i wanted to expose the lies and you know i am an immigrant to this country. My parents brought me from a communist country. When i was two years old and i see that this kind of propaganda is demoralizing young people causing racial conflict and a inspiring kind of marxist revolution. And i don't want that to happen.

"And i couldn't be more cared for in space so it's just good to be somewhere where your loved and appreciated right now. If someone was to go to your social media feeds they would see someone with increasingly increasingly increasingly everyday thousands of new followers one hundred and fifty thousand people looking at this great huge smiling guy that loves to help other people when you look in the mirror. What is it that you see looking back at you I see a better version of what my grandma was trying to help me understand towns of was person and i i see someone who's in the in a short time in i would say in the past two and a half years become the best version of himself. Just because policy for hawaiians human and i know person And i know. I'd like to get to the world's so i see someone who's not only wanting to to love everyone who's in my space but wanting to bring people who don't feel that way into my space so they do I see someone who just wants to help. And be a part of someone's positive journey. And i think when i teach now i've always said like if i can give you one thing that you could take with you and carry with you for the rest of your life on up become your trainer for life but there's one value that you walk away from me for me. I've done my job and that's the most important thing at times. In this conversation you have recalled like little tidbits a piece of advice that other individuals have given you just articulated. How great it is if someone could walk away with one piece from you and i think that that is such an awesome opportunity in such a beautiful takeaway from your journey is knowing that at any given moment we as individuals have the opportunity to help someone and anything that we say at any moment could inspire another human and it doesn't matter if you have hundreds of thousands of followers or five followers or if it's the whole foods grocery cleric or if it's your local barista like any human interaction is an opportunity to positively influence another person. And how beautiful is that opportunity. And i think as humans to take advantage of that It's it's so easy to get caught up in youth. You think or thinking things are insignificant right saying still simple and it's like the things you taunted. The child saying good morning to someone asking someone if they need help folding door for someone smiling at someone. It's it's so simple. How like the smallest things can change. Someone's someone's day Forget at one of my co workers. I was teaching on sunday and she was having a difficult day. So i went and got her macho and she started crying and i was like like katie. Okay she's like yes she's just like. No one ever does things in house like the the simplicity. Excellent macho and not being something that means so much to them is small so just thinking about that on a large-scale what you could do for symbol at south special okay. The final question. My friend right now. You have an opportunity to offer that adrian in the days and weeks after losing his grandmother during that hurdle moment one piece of advice looking back on it. Now what do you tell him to make. Sure you do what's What's really important to you. And that means having to make adjustments in your work life so that you can For me spend spend time with people that you love and care about. Were you know. Nurture the relationships that are important for you. I think it's important. I think it would have been important to know that like. Maybe i didn't have to always be working so much. Maybe i didn't have to say yes to everything. Maybe it was okay to say. Notice certain things and not do Not not do everything just to do everything i think. I always felt bad saying saying no to extra work. Because i was like. Oh they'll think. I'm not a hard worker or like maybe get an opportunity because i'm saying no for something else. What's really important right like i. I were part. That's that's that's always been me. That's who. I am as a person. But i think saying no like agent. It's okay to say noted things that's that's probably the biggest of advice you don't have to say yes to everything And if you miss out on an opportunity just because i'm so hard working eventually it will. It will come in. The i think being pelton has really made me understand that. I was like okay. I've i've worked hard and got into this place. Because i do think i'm a valuable member in terms of having a person who's your co worker or as a friend or as a son i'm i i've add value to the workspace. So just say no adrian. Just say and guns. Just say no do you. I'm so grateful for your perspective. And thank you again for your vulnerability in for opening up about your family story again.

Wet Notes 8-30-21

"This is wet notes here on scuba shack radio for monday august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one. Well we have certainly had our fill of extreme weather lately just last week here. In connecticut we face the challenges of tropical storm on re just barely below hurricane strength and at the last minute it shifted east and we avoided the brunt of the wind rhode island wasn't as fortunate and now we have item a cat for hurricane hit louisiana. Extreme weather is now the norm. The news keeps getting worse. Recently there was a study published by nicholas bars from the potsdam institute for climate impact research and that was that the gulfstream could be varying towards irreversible collapse. Now the gulf stream is part of the atlantic meridional overturning circulation or a. m. Oc this circulation takes warm salty. Water from the tropics moves in north and then takes the cold water south. The study finds that the circulation is at its weakest in one thousand years. So what happens if the gulfstream collapses that will dictate extreme cold for parts of north america and europe. Is the collapse imminent well. That's not an easy question. Answer it could be decades away but as we have seen things are happening a lot faster when it comes to climate change not only will the disruption of the gulfstream resort in colder north american temperatures. It is predicted that there will be a rise in sea level disruption of the monsoon patterns and impacts on the amazon rainforest. An aunt arctic ice sheets. The study concluded that is that this is all a result of human endorse induced climate. Change in may of this year. I talked about a project out on lake. Tahoe called cleanup lake. That project had an ambitious goal of cleaning over seventy two miles of the mountain lake. So i thought i would give it a quick update on how the work is progressing. Now these numbers come from the cleanup delake website. Cleanup delete dot org as earlier this month. Team of divers has removed an amazing eight thousand. One hundred and twenty two pounds of trash were three hundred and three thousand six hundred eighty four kilograms and covered about twenty two miles or thirty four kilometers of coastline. There update indicated that they have completed seventy four dives over twenty seven days of diving. The diver's consumed two hundred and eighty six cylinders of air. Today there have been eighty one volunteers who have delivered two thousand six hundred and eleven volunteer hours. Now i'm not sure if they're on pace to meet their objectives but that's not always the measure success. The amount of continuing effort is what really counts. Keep up the good work guys. The annual boston sea rovers clinic for this year is just one month away. The two thousand twenty clinic happened just a couple of weeks. Before the corona corona virus lockdowns took effect. We really didn't know how serious things were then. Now as we continue to emerge from the pandemic the show may just have the distinction of being the last face to face. Scuba show in the world before the pandemic and the first face-to-face scuba show in the world post pandemic monty. And i were at the last meeting. And everything's proceeding for the october. First and second show the show will follow state and local mandates and as the days pass by. We are all hoping that the show will go off his plan. This year shows moved from the traditional march date to october as a result of the pandemic that you'd be a great time to enjoy some early fall weather in new england. It'd be great to get together and diving is certainly a social sport. Do you miss dive training magazine. I sure do. I think i've re reread all the back issues. We have a good shop at least three times. So what's happening with the publication. Well i reached out to catherine castle garcia the editor to find out the latest catherine informed me that they hope to be publishing again in the fourth quarter of two thousand and twenty one. Now that's some good news. The fourth quarter is not that far away. And i'm certainly looking forward to dive training magazine hitting the streets and finally here on wet notes. I wanted to give you an update on the situation with dutch springs. If you remember last time. I reported that the property owned by stu jill school had been sold to trammell crow texas developer. Who's planning to build a large warehouse facility on the property. The initial word was that dutch would shut down after the season while a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks i there was a petition that garnered over three thousand supporters to keep the place open and as we know petitions can only go so far then there was support from patty professional association of diving instructors patty due to white paper outlining the economic benefits dutch brings provides as a diving venue. Patty estimates that because dutch exists. It helps to generate three point. Four billion annual retail sales in the northeast they tag the economic benefit to bethlehem at thirty four point five million as for tax revenue. The paper indicates that about ninety. Eight point nine million is generated for state and local taxes and northeast and about two point one million for bethlehem in addition to patty support. The lehigh valley planning commission has called the proposal of disaster for the quality of life in the lehigh valley while it seems that there a great deal of opposition to maybe very little that can be done to stop the effort. One positive. I that i did see. Was that trammell. Crow was indiscretions with local officials to offload the fifty off lou to fifty acre quarry for community use. Just how would you get to acquire if they build the warehouses. I don't know while the saga is far from over. I would expect that we won't see. Dutch brings open for the twenty twenty two dive season but his al michaels once said. Do you believe in miracles. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes. Here on scuba shot radio for august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one

How the Military Is Being Indoctrinated Into Cultural Marxism via Critical Race Theory

"Mentioned. Also that defense secretary. Lloyd austin said that the pentagon's military training program incorporated critical race theory and the un-american sixteen nineteen project. how is it possible that these Utterly false ideologies. They're not merely american. They're fundamentally false that they would make their way into pentagon training this. I think this is where you know. Most americans are waking up. We're horrified and we think this has to end. We cannot live in a nation that is being protected by people indoctrinated with marxism with cultural marxism. How in the world is it possible. That things could get that far in the military. It's one thing if it happens at harvard and yale because they've always been drinking zeitgeist kool aid but in the military we. I would think that this couldn't happen. How has it gotten this far. The one answer this as something that most people don't realize is that very same instructors who are teaching on college campuses and saint. Harvard yale are teaching service branch academies there are teaching at the naval academy. This happened to the bill clinton previously. You had to be actually within the military to teach at a service branch academy under clinton you had the same civilian professors coming in. And these are the guys who are absolutely pushing radical agendas and. They are teaching the next officer class i. This is a huge huge problem. Now like million themselves are products for example of columbia their products of the same ivy league system. That is bad enough. Up at the same system has infested for example the naval academy One of the more recent issues. You have a tendency commander discussing america's problem with systemic racism and confessing his own bias. These kinds of things have become routine and this is the kind of marxist indoctrination on that our troops rejected even when they were prisoners of vietnam. There were people. Had bamboo shoots which another fingernails harrods the monks indoctrination now. They do voluntarily. Because it's good for their careers because this has been embedded in service branch academies it is a huge crisis that Some patriotic columbia fighting but that most people are unaware

Helping Your Kids 'Focus' on Zoom

"Zoom another video. Conferencing tools are here to stay as businesses press pause on the return back to offices. It also means students may continue learning remotely so zoom is introducing a new feature to help keep kids be less distracted. Yeah that's right. zoom revealed. A new mode called focus and it's aimed specifically for teaching environments such as obviously being in class During the class the way it works is if when it's run through zoom and you're using this focus mode. Teachers will be able to see every student in class but students will only see the teacher. So when a student's view you'll have the usual zoom view but instead of seeing all those faces different tiles students will only see the names of other classmates in available windows but they won't hear their peers talking if there's any and they won't see any non verbal feedback or hear them when they're on muted basically just looks like it's the student and the teacher in the zoom at all times It also works to for teachers when they want to enable screen sharing so say an instructor is trying to do some kind of presentation and kids take turns presenting stuff in class. They can basically screen share with that individual child and then everybody else can focus on that. And there's not a zillion other pop ups that are there that are distracting And we've seen zoom take several steps over the last few months to shore up its platform as americans have grown more reliant on using videoconferencing like zoom a to get through working to get through school We just saw last month. Zim zum rolled out apps so basically it just merges popular productivity and entertainment services like games directly into the zoom window and they also launched an events tool to host hybrid meetings or conferences directly within zoom. So we're seeing a lot of different changes with the platform over these last couple months. Sounds pretty interesting. i mean. unfortunately we're going to be doing zoom for the foreseeable future. It sounds like in some fashion. You know whether it's school are worker. What are happy hours. Or whatever so Sounds cool

This fall in october. That's my birthday weekend superstars. And then i'm going to put a number of number two other things back on on on the on the calendar here but you know it's again you know my my job is. I'm lucky my job is per parties to stay fit. So i i really enjoy training so when when it comes to your racing and all of your various athletic accomplishments. What are you proudest of man. I'm really proud that i broke. I got under sixteen minutes in the five k in college. I was really happy about that. Those big moment for me I'm really happy that i did iron man. That was a bucket list for me. I couldn't believe it actually finished that and then I'm really proud. That i broke three hours in the marathon with room to spare. Yeah so you won't happen that day. It was always like i personally like these longer. I'm a five Short short stuff. I was out there and so miserable. And i was like i. I don't care if i ever wanna do this ever again. And so. I was like what she send it. Let's just like absolutely send it. And so i did and then i qualified for boston because i i thought i was going to be done with marathons after that race qualified or boston. Like oh man. I have to do it again so i like the short distance from so. When are we going to see you in. Beck's gentry running a marathon together sometime sometime. I my hat goes off to her. She is one unbelievable athlete in person like to do her job and to to train like she'd trained and to perform like she performed that is no small feat now. She's incredible she. I mean some of the stories that she shared when she was here about some of the conditions that she trained through like. What a superwoman. Wow she's she's rockstar. She's absolutely rockstar. Speaking of things that i think seem impossible running and cycling and speaking into a microphone. I asked every single instructor this question but like how do you do that. I can barely have a conversation on the run and you are giving instruction and doing the workout and like maintaining composure. Is that something that came naturally to you that take practice. Tell tell us about the running. And talking i think it all takes practice and at the end like when it comes to running like the pace on running up there compared to what i we what. I need to be running for my own fitness. Two different things And so i have. I have to dial things back to be able to coach but rule number one in coaching. Is that the workout. Is the athletes In so i'm not up there for myself up there for you My my workout takes place somewhere else. I just took that very personally asked. He's there for me. Like i am tens of thousands like me specifically that felt. I took that to heart. It's yes sir. It's practice. But i'm also not you know i should not be doing. Ftp tests where. I'm talking like. I i if you saw me doing enough to be scared. I've seen my husband do them. My husband was a cyclist for a long time. So i've i'm familiar. Okay what has been your most memorable pelivan memory. Thus far knows memorable Memory the homecomings are always like crazy. Wild fun like the one we were we were in the ballroom and we had like a concert and also that was like so crazy Yeah i would say probably. The homecomings are just so crazy so so fun. What about getting to travel and shoot those scenic rides. I was pretty jealous of that. Men at that's where you pinch yourself and your like this. Am i really doing this for my job like this is like what did i do right in my life. So i can't yet peleton is is a wonderful place to work and Had some wonderful opportunities here and that was probably one of the best so cool and just so pretty. I love those is insane. So whether you're teaching a ride or a run and if you could see anyone's name pop up on the leaderboard who would you most want to see and realize. Oh my gosh. That person's taking my class right now. I would say that's a great question man. Oh man. I think Two people see people. Dwayne johnson aka. The rock or a or peterson gone the the famous cyclists sprinter. I just think that there is such positive wonderful people that have done a lot for athletics. that yeah they're just. They seem to be described people. I would love to meet one day. I feel like the rock could happen. Like i like like to look like he looks and do as much as he does. I don't know how he doesn't. Yeah i mean. We're we're big fans in this house. Oh that's you know. One of his lesser praised roles. But i think he deserves a lot of credit maui in the film moana so i do love that film career. How have you as an instructor evolved since you started teaching at peleton man. Oh man i. It all started. When i started teaching group fitness and like my friend laura kozak she. She's like matt. You have got to learn how to relax and have fun as an instructor. And i feel like since the day. I started teaching group fitness It's been A small chisels being used on me to crack my shell a little bit. Because i come from a very strict strict performance background and to crack that shell has been. It's been very difficult over the years. And i think working peleton. It's been wonderful for that because there's a lot we have so many different instructors and peleton when i started. There was no power train. When i started because didn't exist and I had to teach a lot of different types of classes. And i had to learn about music. I didn't even know that there is eight count. I didn't even finding a rhythm repeat. That was like emma level top all that. So it's a it's it's definitely made me a better instructor. That's for sure. But like a long shot. So are you having fun. When you're teaching absolutely.

"To be anything left in the reservoir i love it I remember in not going back to lena. Dunham who. I've talked about landed on a more on this episode. Then i probably have in my entire life. So far though i did watch every season of girls and was very invested in it One of the things that she said in one of her interviews after sharing that photo in talking about getting into running as she said matt's whole philosophy is that you need to approach running with confidence to really run strong. He used the term run arrogant. Which means like somebody who knows how to run. And i just love that so much and i'd be curious to hear more about where the philosophy came from about approaching running with confidence and tell more about that. Yeah you know that's a man. There's so many letters There's a lot of layers to this. But the first layer is like okay when you when you want someone to think about. Posture specifically described running posture. And i have to you guys in classes using many many different many words. And but if you think about arrogant right when you think about someone that walks down the street that looks arrogant right there standing tall or standing proud. They're sending confident they're looking straight ahead and that's really how you wanna rhyme. That's how you went out for you to like luck So it it puts imaging people's heads with a few words that was like for the most part that was the point to lena. Was like if there's one word to think about when you're when you're thinking about your stride thinking about running arrogant part is just like a lot of runners especially beginning to rise. They're not confident out there. Not that they they. They're self confidence isn't isn't dialed in. And it's like you know to to be confident and to and to to run confident In it'll help it'll help your posture but also your mind and then The last layer of that too and this is probably the deepest layer is is like from working with a lot of men and women. I noticed what women that there was Homage it's like confidence is a big deal with women i. There's a lot of lack of confidence out there Especially athletic space. And i. i blame society personally But it's like it's like you know like what's what's work on building your confidence like i want you to be confident in yourself and realize that you can go out there and you can do whatever you want you can crush this In that was something. I realized Coaching it's like a great example. Is like a guy that making you know. Hey go run a mile seven and mile a no problem. I got from history a female. And they're like okay. I i have to work up shifts. I might get like a company commander from completely different angles. And i i just. I wanted like with a female runners really like working confidence. Describe me and my husband. I didn't right right. It's like super for male athletes. I'm constantly pulling back and for female athletes constantly pushing him forward and making them trying to make an. I'm like look you're so strong you are so capable like like let let me just like let me show you this like you're unbelievable and so it's There's that too all right so give us all a start. Line pep talk you. Have we talk a lot about you as a polygon instructor. But you know you at the races are no slouch mr to fifty four marathoner and ten thirty iran manner. So this you know. We're all very excited to see. That racing is coming back. That fall marathons and all distances are getting back on the calendar. So let's say to all of the people listening who have put in the work and put in training and had good days and bad days but show up on that start line feeling nervous about how the day might go and anyone who's run really any distance but i'll say especially the marathon. Anything can happen race day. What's your start line. Pep talk for everyone starling. Pep talk first of all before you ever get to the starting line. You should always think about envisioning. What is success for that day. What is success. Like walking yourself through that mentally How would that race go. What would that be successful race. Be and then the other thing is that like think back to all the training that you've done realize and then realizing that you're you're training along the way is is like not only a trained physically but also trained mentally to prepare you and it's like think back to all the training that you've done and how like you deserve to be there like you deserve to be there you deserve success and then lastly but like know that. There's no perfect race. There's no race in that things are going to happen out there that you can't predict that you can't control that's okay and like be ready for that and at the end of the day like your job is to. You've done everything we can do to get your body to where it is today and now your job is to go forth and take what you have and make the most of it. that's it. What about the race day. And i mean this is kind of falls under the same umbrella as the confidence and the preparation. But we've talked to a lot of people on the show who've dealt with things like race day anxiety. And i even a shout out to my friend jenny donnelly. Who's been here. She talked about having mid race panic attacks where she literally had to stand on the side of the course and sit down and wait for a panic attack to subside. Any advice on that front. I had my share panic attacks out there. That's for sure it all comes back to breathing like when things start to feel out of control you need to dial things back and focus on what you can control and from the very core of that is your breath. Dial it all the way back here. Breath go down to the point work. You're counting your breaths and then start to count your footsteps and then starts like your world can get bigger from there but until you can handle that your world needs to get very small and focused on zapping. What's your ex exact control right now and then you can start to focus on the other things but bring it back to what you have complete control over right now. I was like taking depress while you're doing now. So that was very helpful anxious. I feel good today but like that was nice. That was a good little Excuse to take some deep breaths over hero. She was again. It's like you you have. It gives you a sense of control because you do have control then when you start control start to extrapolate from there. Yeah oh i like that. So what about. What role does running cycling fitness in general. What role does it play in your life right now. Do you have anything.

I got my training plan as well And then Calls meetings calls meetings calls meetings the glamorous life phil eternity and then some were at all got play listing planning out that the next the next workouts coming out and then dinner. Rinse and repeat said. Screw much it walk us through. The plane listing process. I'm always super interested to hear about this from the various instructors. What is your process. Look like when you're putting together your class playlists. That is hilarious. You should ask all the instructors. What they think about my playlist hari. Every everyone thinks that was a psycho. 'cause i build i build everything excel At the accounting man in you can tell you every second where where everything is going to land in every second. Because i just need that kind of control in my classes. Build my classes in excel And then you know that way. It's workings that and put in the playlist. Process is like comes down to if it's music based class you know. Put together awesome platelets That that creates a very cool type of a undulating terrain. But then if it's power zone kassir arrange structured session where we designed a workout. I Then it's all about. How does the music complement the effort were asking for. And that's very important How does the music compliment. What i'm asking for as a coach and and so that's might not be the perfect like the best music you've ever heard but does it compliment what i'm asking for and that's the goal. I love it. I love the excel. What is everyone else. Use people some i. I think that like olympia does on her cell phone or something. Which would drive me bananas. I couldn't do it. I don't know how she does a lot of things she does. She's just like a little like spitfire. That i need to just inject in my veins. Every day she's awesome she's cook the cooling reports on. It's like we're all very very different and like one of us can look at one thing one way and the other person will have a polar opposite view like my favorite is like hang out with just can't like her and i could not be more but it's fun. It's really cool. It's actually refreshing. I love that. I love me. Some king kingfisher have have known her of her center dancing days. So that's always a fun one. He's awesome yeah okay. So can you describe since you mentioned the power zone classes for people listening who've never tried pelivan and they're like what in the world is he talking about. Can you give us a little power zone. One a one and tell us why. Those classes appeal to you as a coach. Yes when you think about training somebody training individual. You're going to the gym right. You need to lift weights that are appropriate for you when we talk about doing cycling class like you should be at intensities that are appropriate for you and not for somebody else. That's step one step. Two is when you design a structure class where intensities are held for specific announced the time you can achieve his specific various specific result. So this gives me the ability as a as a coach to design workouts. That anyone can do from anywhere as long as they know. They're they're what's called your ftp like which is basically how you benchmark your How higher intensities are benchmarked off of I can sign a workout. That that can be customized.

"Call. That was a really hard coal. Yeah that's so cool though. The timing is always so unbelievably serendipitous with stories. Like this. where like you're about to make this huge life change in in swoops another opportunity and it's like yeah i just i love those stories trump. Try explain that to my parents. Oh yeah yeah you know what. We're what were their thoughts when you're like i'm going to be a doctor. Just kidding i'm going to be a fitness instructor which both our incredible respectable positions. But yes tell us about parents. Odds parents want the best for you right there like they want you to have this solid strong career. That's got like stabilities. Yes stability blah blah blah. Your i like going with a startup that no one. At that time it was not a name brand like not not a lot of people knew about it and my dad was like what are you doing like you just spent all this like. Nyu's not cheap. You spend all this money to go to school and you you suffered she go to school and now you're you're effectively throwing it away. I didn't at that time. It's just like i didn't see it as throwing away like i had spent so much time in. The fitness industry worked with a number of startups. Like what. I saw peleton with the leadership. We have john foley and the rest of the team up there. Gosh it's awesome bench people and if i knew that if this company didn't make it i don't think anyone of any one of them would so tell us about what happens next so you get this job and walk us through the next steps where they like. Here's how you teach on camera. Here's how to wear a microphone. What did it all. Oh man holy cow it. Tell me when i get in the door. you know. you're on the pastorale. What does that mean. They're like we need you like up and running in less than a month and mike really. Okay and like. Here's a guy that's in like teaching in the studio. Never been on camera cameron his life or anything. Okay and of course. I'm coming up in the ranks with. Alli love and allie. Love is like a star like you on camera she. She's amazing on camera. And i'm like i'm horrible so anyways i was learning a lot from our large us. Chose your help me out with a camera. Side of things for sure And and so on but from from a technical standpoint from teaching cycling. I i was. I felt pretty strong very comfortable. And i knew that. If i approach classes Approached other classes in training. Sessions is like this is a coaching session. This is not not here to like put on some kind of show. And that's how. I approach my classes early on and i think i scared a lot of people but because it was it was it wasn't a it was a different a different thing for pelivan on at that time. So let's hear a little bit more about your coaching philosophy. Then whether you're working with a lena dunham or a cyclist or a runner one on one or your coaching to like. We said to tens of thousands of athletes through the screen. What is your philosophy is the goal like i want to secretly motivate you and change your life or is it like i want you to better understand form and how to be an athlete. What what's top of mind for you. Well it really comes back to the athletes. Not about what i want. It's about what the athlete once and in creating an environment where they feel comfortable that they can they. Can you know. I guess vulnerable but also like go for it and set them in setup Set up a session or training plan or whatever they feel like very much in control in control their destiny but also create a very positive. Atmosphere had a lot of coaches in my life. And i don't respond well to negative reinforcement and i've made it my mission to be a positive reinforcement encouraging person. Because i've i've seen the best comes out of me in that kind of environment that kind of atmosphere. That's really who. I tried to be as like you know train hard train. Smart like understand what you're doing but have fun in if you make a mistake it's okay like you're you're still heading in the right direction So yeah do you have a favorite type of person or athlete to work with and to coach like do you love beginners. Do you love really experienced people people with specific goals. Is there something that gets you the most excited You know it's it's a great question because Yeah it's it's a really great question. I in terms of experience athlete. I think there's someone fun to work with. Every level beginner intermediate advanced. There's always someone fun to work with. But it's like are they coming to. The table are getting the work done. Or is this just a therapy session. If they're getting the work done and we're coming back and we're making progress together and we're having that's fun. That's a lot of fun but if we're if we're just talking about doing that's not fun and so that's that's that's declined that i like to work with is the client that it's getting it done because then we can make progress all right so tell us about your first peleton class. What do you remember the most. Would i remember the most is my boss at the time I was very nervous. I was so nervous about all. This nervous might look like my first class. All you could see was the top of my head. Because i could. My bike position was like the same as my outdoor bike which my handle bars are drought for aerodynamics. That doesn't really work on studio. And i'll never forget at the end of my class My big boss walking in to back in the studio seen walk into backwards studio while i am signing out any gives me like the you know the fist. Pound like you nailed. This and i will never forget that gives me chills because it meant so much to me. Were you nervous. I was crazy bringers. So but yeah. It was always krizner with a batman to me. So what about for your second class. Where you crazy nervous for that one two or did that kinda did you get the nerves out on the first one and then you're like all right. I'm good. i got the fist pump. I'm confident now. Yeah you know every time every once in a while peleton puts a lot of attention on me because of a class. I'm teaching or whatever. And i still get crazy nervous. But but the when when the when the eyes are taken off me i settle right into the coach liked to be And so after that first class. I was in good shape. So what do you get nervous about. Are you nervous about the technology. Are you worried about being out of breath. What are you nervous about making. Sure say the right things. Have you ever not. Have you ever gotten feedback. That was like new. Said the wrong thing. I've said a lot of wrong things. Let's be honest. I am said a lot of terrible things in terms of like the wrong time. Whenever but i. I really tried to do my best. Yeah we we all make mistakes absolutely. And i can't think of any that you've made top of mind in case that's where you can think of some mind interrupting here.

"I'm your host alley feller. And every week. I talk with people who are doing cool things on the run and beyond we all share that love running and that's what brings us all together here but of course there is more to life than what happens on the run itself and this show celebrates the in betweens the water stops. The bathroom breaks the moments and decisions that have shaped who we are today and the wise. Why do we do what we. And how does getting sweaty factor in today by very popular demand peleton instructor. Matt wilpers is here. Matt is a financial analyst. Earned pre med student turned fitness instructor and coach. And i wanted to have matt on the show for a few reasons first because you all set me so many messages requesting him as a guest second. Because i'm always interested in people who started out on one career path and at some point decided to go a totally different route. I think those pursue your passion stories are always really interesting and inspiring. And i wanted to learn more about matt's decision to go from. Goldman sachs to world-famous fitness coach and third. Because matt to me. He isn't the flashiest instructor on the bike or treadmill. You probably won't find him dancing on the bike or wearing a costume on the treadmill but anyone who takes math classes. We'll tell you at that when it comes to coaching. He is one of the very best. I don't wanna say he's all business because he's more than that. He's fine but so often. We celebrate clash and i love sparkles glitter jazz hans. But that's just not who matt is. Matt is as authentic as it gets. He seems to genuinely care about the people who take his boss and as explained in this conversation he really just wants us all to reach our full athletic potential whenever that is in addition to being a peleton's coach matt runs his own coaching business. He coaches everyday athletes elite athletes and a few years ago. He even coach lena dunham during the final season of girls which we talk about quite a bit. It was fun to hear about that..

"Tablets that that if you have been thinking about hiring at struck young and i would agree with that but if you have somebody in mind that's gonna be the head instructor. I would imagine that you've spent time with them for years. Hopefully i to to understand how they work in knows what their capabilities are with their capabilities could be and i guess it depends on the system that you have in place for developing your instructors. So master bean is talking about. Is you know he was an he was a. he was an instructor. Gosh probably what four or five years before you actually stepped into the role of being the head instructor. So by that time You know you you primarily knew how to teach and and that type of stuff so that's kind of that's kind of where you're coming from where i don't know you know ranchi ryan where where you're coming from but With regards to here's you taught before he had you as head instructor like the question was what would you advise an instructor who's hiring new head instructor they're like i'm not new had instructed. I've been an instructor and your. Yeah but how long before an instructor did you take to become a head in like. How long did you teach before you became one of the head. Instructors if not the head instructor only about five years or so. I it took a while and then you develop that that level. I mean i think for me. I think it's always an messing. I love what you said to like. You know we don't want we want people to be kind of clone ish of who we are how we act what we think in what we do so. It's not like you're running two separate just been at the same time using the straits of people's individual personalities who they are how they act like ryan is throw at a totally different teacher than i am like. I said he's much more of a jokester much more serious. Maybe you know again. They're on the right side of the screen ryan Essentially dwayne Of the same jokesters. And so on you and i are probably more straight laced than anything else. So but we find a niche and then we want to. Of course celebrate the of those teachers so i agree with that i think that supreme court so I know we got a you know quickly end here..

"I'm like because you set the tone of chaos right before and so i'm more to judge it. Bow like an. I and i started off the way i want to continue it. So he's got an energy that i don't have an and i have a good friend. He's seventy two years old. Been running school for forty five years. He goes like this to me holds his hands up in for the listeners. Not watching you'll have his hands close together. He says years ago and then he pulls him far apart. Now hands just came out of the camera. Angle he goes. This is what my tolerance level was. Then he says now is like an inch and a half away from each other so i don't tolerate anything. They listen yes sir me. If they don't listen. I kick them out like he's less tolerant. grow older. I think for us. Dwayne you and i are tolerance level lower in. That's why the younger generation has ryan me not to step in because you operated master. Bean has less tolerance that me so good. It's really good. 'cause often as the time that you know i would say. He's one hundred percent right where i should have got rid of that person or i should have said. I don't think it's right right and ryan does that with me as well and i. Sometimes they will work any. I know it's not good so we have one person that we're working on right now. So we asked this gentleman So we right right now you have and then obviously the people that are gonna listen to this as not live as the recording. You have school owners. That are listening to you about your position. Maybe they already have head instructor. Maybe they're looking for a head instructor. I guess my question to you. Is you know from your Because it as much as we're navigating trying to run a school you're also trying to navigate us and there's a delicate balance there. And i and i. I'm just going to give a compliment to masturbation. I think he does that very well. Because he will approach me on things with the utmost respect but then ask the question. Why are we doing this or should be maybe do this. Or whatever so You know exactly what i'm talking about. How do you navigate being the head instructor yet not the owner but approaching the owner with problems or solutions and ideas those type of things and obviously there we you know we always talk about their. It's only a problem if you don't have a solution but yeah right. Yeah so that would be the thing is if you have a heaven issue or problem that you realize at figure out it may not be the best solution oftentimes. It isn't but have some sort of solution that you can bring along with that so you know whatever whatever the issue is if you have a solution or idea of what that might year way to make that position or whatever it is better smoother for the students Would be would be the best way to approach it but also always students best interests at heart and so don't a come up with issues or problems his as you you yourself. The head instructor Don't like it or or it's not working for you. Come at it from the students. Best interest in so whatever the whatever the issue might be thinking about how you how that's gonna affect or impact the students in what that is going to be better How to make that system or process better for them and lays it. Just be respectful as you do that. i always like to think that if i if i mess up than Like my job. So i wanna do do things in los respectful..

They have a deeper connection to what your lessons are. What you want to teach they might. We might argue sometimes. We might have disagreements by all at in goal. Yeah i might. You missed messaging. That's kind of a tough one for me. Because i legitimate love every class i teach. I guess if i had to pick one over the others We do a program on. Fridays with special needs individuals of various different ages. I think If i had to pick my favorite it would be those guys just. Because they're such a fun. Fun group. they're carefree. their information. they do is kind of lighthearted in classes. Light-hearted makes it fine. If i had to take that would be. That'd be one also at great though. I love that s fantastic. Yeah so i. I have one other a few others but we do not were pretty much. What like eighteen minutes left so for you guys Chief instructors and head instructors in the school What would you like to see if you were if you were able to. Or if you're doing it now how it what direction. How would you like to see things shift. What would you like to see. More of less of on you know as far as schools growth and so on and so forth when we have you go i yeah so schools growth I mean obviously would be great too. We're kind of doing the opening another school and so great to have you know. Have another location. Have our information. We get to choose. And and and they can teach from Just a share with more people a wider and wider bates. That's awesome cool. Are you going to be part of that helping are you. Are you running the school jew or helping run indoor to continue to run the school down that now we have another instructor. There's going to be truck up to do the to do the other school. But i will still be a part of the teacher my lesson plans and and so you'll be setting up a training and they'll be doing it there. It'll be monitoring maintaining its staff training and so on. That's pretty exciting right wizar- yet. How about you ranchi ryan what are you. What would you like to see. I know if it was up to you you'd be grappling. Twenty four seven just grappling because you love grappling so much data like what would you like to see for the students. What would you like to see us improve on. I know that we just talked about black belt. Testing and maintaining those black belts in incoming blackouts. What are some of your thoughts. Well besides like teaching. I'd like to have a more like the staff to understand what i wanted to do. Better i know that teaching. Now i feel like a lot of the stamp. Sometimes they don't really know.

"I mean that's all. I and then i was watching martial arts movies on my days off like that's all i thought about that girls and music. Those are the three things that i had in my life right but But you know. I think that sometimes parents the kids are so busy right with so many things. That's this is great. It's not a lot but they do it at home and they did it and now they're like yeah. I did my thing and you know. They're still practicing so hats off. That's a great great process. I like it so not only. Was there the flash cards. But i don't know if it was your are the Breakfast breakfast parts. But i think it was your idea as well. They do the flash cards so explain flash cards because those are different. Yes so for the flash cards We have a professor from it. Record the audio but Shows is just an audio video of his audio and video. It's a shows the the hand technique or for technique in korean and he says it in korean. He gives a small window of opportunity for him to or for the for the sooner rather decided by englishes and then professor The next technique would flash up in korean. He says it in korea he says in korean gives them the opportunity. Tuesday it in english and then he tells them with english is so. This is the helps. Reinforce the korean in english korean martial arts so just to help who refreshing in rehearse on those that terminology information is. that's awesome. I had one time had paid a in. It's no longer even available to me because it was done in. Flash flashes almost literally obsolete. But i had it put together in a game or we had our papa and they will on tiles and they would slide the on. You know the first part of the move here than they had to connect the next part until they got all the details in order. And if they didn't do it in order it would fall out they'd have to figure it out and then at the end they could play the cop that and watch it but they had to know the sequence for into play and that was refunding. I wish we had something like that. I wish i could get my slash to play on a different software but it was a pretty cool way for to turn it into a video game for them to be able to actually learn because kids learn that way there on their computers on your phones and so on it would be a very cool thing so let me ask you this as the the head guy at the you know the head.

I run ten schools at one time and as many as thirty six employees I've often called the tyrant and like a workaholic. And you know you know closed minded. Know 'cause my you know my way or the highway kind of mentality of people sometimes think that but running a school is an easy as you guys know outright like it's not just teaching there's so many different dynamics personalities every kid is different. Every parent is different So tell us a little bit of how you navigate those things as as instructors and well. Hey allie curious before you even started there. Let's start at the beginning. Why why did you. Why did you want to take on the role of you know head instructor in the school. Yeah that's a great. Yeah yeah great. Great question to start with. Yeah who wants to wants to go first ryan here. The question is why. Would i wanna be. Yeah why did you want to take on that role of doctor.

Just this makes my day. I've been looking forward to this conversation all day here on here at all. I am catching up with some of my all time. Favorite guests from the last couple of years away to round out the year and so naturally one of the most listened to episodes of hurdle in two thousand twenty a yes. Stop it star jazz. You're making me blush things that you can't see on a podcast so i'm bringing just sims into the mix adjust how are loaded question to start off. How are you doing. i love me. Loaded question on a right now. Do well thank you for asking. It is my day off and not by getting to be adults things that i like to push aside on my busy workdays in just enjoy. It's snowing actually for the first time in new york city today. See technically speaking. It's been snowing for a few hours. So i will take the like sundance with like for the first time with a grain of salt. I've definitely seen snow this year. But this is like a new. No yes i mean. Nobody teaching and inspiring all. You're socio. I mean okay fine but yes fair. I looked out the window. And all i see is white. So it's a. It's officially a good snow day. I'm into it. I'm into it so i mean we're talking about snow now but we've been talking about for. The last year is the fact that this year is unlike any other. So give the hurdlers. Catch me up a little bit. Talk to me about how your twenty twenty has been. Oh man <hes>. Twenty twenty what a year it has been it blows my mind that it's december. Let me start off by saying that. I feel like the last before before. Twenty twenty bt. I'm gonna. I'm gonna coin that officially here the last like memory i have before. Pre pre pandemic was black history. Month that peleton and so it's wild because we're revving up for black history month. Twenty twenty one and so am i wait a minute. I just feel like i. It's a time travel but it's been a year full of a lot of stuff a lot of alone time a lot of reflection a lot of community a lot of realization that i'm really excited to dive into with you today and i wouldn't have traded and of course this year has been brutal for so many reasons for so many people but i wouldn't trade this year because it's done so much for me personally. It's also gotta be really interesting. I mean especially with what you do. So many people around the country around the world are looking toward peleton this year for inspiration and motivation and like sanity and you are the person that is providing that sanity to so many people so i would imagine that although what a beautiful opportunity to connect with these people like pressures on me. That's how i would see it from my point of view like i would imagine that for you. Maybe more than ever being really honest about what you need and where you're at is so important to show up for your community totally and i think that that's one of the things that i pride myself on. Always being very real so <hes>. I was just talking a couple of weeks ago. you might have heard it in class <hes>. By the way. Thank you for taking classes. That i love the phrase. Amplify the positive. Because it's not you don't wanna be overly optimistic to the point where you're annoying. It's the point where you're like okay. But you're you're undermining the pain and the suffering that so many people are going through but you can always find the positive and by using the word amplify it's acknowledging that life is not all roses but there are some beautiful things much. Choose to put those up higher. Focus on motives and for me personally. It's the secret as saying this whole thing. Secret thing that i was thinking in my head was yes. Wow i am doing so much for other people you know. We're almost four million members of our world wide with at the time and i don't take role lightly whatsoever and but the secret is that y'all have done more for me than you could ever imagine because there was a point in time where i was not working out unless i was teaching. I couldn't get myself to be motivated enough to get up and teaching. Because i didn't want to do it for myself. I was like oh it's easy to just you know. Hang in today's easy today to just you know. Forget about those goals. And forget about the things i said i wanted to do. But because it's my job. Because i need to show up i find my strength in the stories of our members. And so when you get a dm or a comment or your tagged in a post though someone saying jess the i'm your the only bright spot. Peleton is the only bright spot in my twenty twenty. I'm a essential worker <hes>. My mom is sick. am a single parent. I have three kids under three like. There's the story's never cease to amaze me and on my toughest arcus day <unk>. I'm like these people need me in able to transcend myself and realize that it's bigger than me and i'm able to get up there and perform and i it it it helps me. I hope just as much as it helps others.
