Can you give me twenty inches on that You definitely learn to do things quickly and in a different way and that really helped me to with the writing. I do every day on the show right and some of it is as I said breaking news and I'm writing in the commercial breaks or I'm writing up until the last second because to me. That's just that's just daily practice. Because I did it for years interviewing something sort of big picture stuff is something. I did insert later jobs When I was working for. Espn making that transition to television. There's a lot of how do I bring my writing skills to TV? Which is something that is a big part of the job may be more so than some of the other shows Eddie. Espn it was covering the big picture league stuff like the NBA. The NFL the weekly Games. That I did to the NFL. Where I would do start for sports center and I was just talking about this with some of our producers the other day You know they were years. I was based out of New York where there'd be big football games right and it would be a giants cowboys game. Jimmy remember giants. Cowboys was a big matchup. Right I do. I do comparing it to the Knicks. Though the giants cowboys is still a big deal in New York. I'll say all right so anyway but yeah so I'd be stationed out a giants for a week. Right and Edward or would be stationed a cowboys for a week. And we'd spend a week finally daily stories to sportscenter about like. Oh here's the Eli manning versus the cowboys. Db's matchup for something. Like that. And then it would just be this. You know sort of built this blockbuster. Game on Sunday now in those examples. Fox's getting the rating bright for that game but we're talking about how we can kind of use the jump to build some of the storylines that will go into our Saturday night games right something like that. So little bit is like building these storylines of the NBA and my experience in that coming in When I left. Espn to go to Turner and CNN. my own show on CNN and CNN obviously is not as heavy a sports network in fact obviously news network had Topic specific shows so Sanjay Gupta had health show and I I had a sports show and crossfire was sort of the more heavy politics. Show as opposed to just news information and stuff like that There's an entertainment show that like that But it was still trying to deliver that to a CNN. So during that time it was a lot of. Hey can you translate this issue to give it the larger context in society? What is this really about right? What does it mean? What sort of the larger conversation going on here whether it's something as straightforward as the bring rice relation which is obviously about domestic violence and kind of how we treat women and children and laws and and who to believe in and all of that in our society to You know things that were simpler sort of more fun raid on Sports. Is this big tent. We all gather in not. Everybody watches the same movies anymore the same TV shows but sports we a lot of US watch the same. Sporting events took wait praise to have all these conversations. We do that on the jump on the sideline reporter TNT and got to be part of those broadcasts around the inside the NBA guys and sometimes jump on that show or sometimes jump in host on NBA TV and a very different perspective than ESPN Da much looser right. Show show ethos that. They subscribed raid. They have less tight to the rundown about discussion More about letting things just sort of go in crazy directions. Obviously if you have Shaquille O'Neal Charles Berkeley you have to subscribe. But it was definitely education for me right and then also you know the value of big personalities and and getting to sort of really take people inside where it was like for those players and people and all of those different things for all of those different years. I mean I've been covering the am one way or another two decades. I've had nearly every job there is to have bring the NBA We get to do now on the jump and it Kinda makes us Nimble enough that You know when the when the Dallas Mavericks situation went down and I had spent months sort of talking on and off the Mark Cuban about doing an interview I was ready to do that interview and I got the report. I think. Two hours before the Interview so it was really just and it was a I. I don't have a number in front of me but it was dozens and dozens of pages of legal stuff to go through And again that kind of went back to my hard news. Journalism background of highlighting circling. And all of that and being able to on the fly over the course of an hour to me really felt like a parse a lot of the stuff that was going on in that with Mark Cuban and made it in an interview that Soak into me. Because I had some of the women in The Dallas Mavericks Organization. Come back to the afterward and honestly of all the people of all the reactions that was one of the most meaningful because they just said. Hey you ask the questions. We've been trying to ask for years and so being able to do that was great. Also being able to show all about the most disrespectful dunks of all time is awesome and feeds into my sense of humor and things that I wanna do and stuff that I really encourage the staff. We have goofy photoshop. We have all of that stuff to me is what's so much fun about sports and fun about the NBA. You mentioned being distracted by from Corona virus and Super Tuesday. People are looking for that. I'm looking for that so I'm weren't that stuff in there too. So the fact that we've been able to dislike crazy stew is a very long answer to your short question but I do consider myself a little bit of everything in the show a little bit of everything and it's a fun way to sort of put a bow on all the stuff that I spent years.

"We taped one on Monday with Andrew. Marchena The New York Post to break down the Tony Romo Contract Tony staying with CBS NOT GOING ESPN. So if you haven't listened to that you can dip into the archives and check that out this episode features an interview with ESPN's Rachel Nichols and We talked to her about hosting the jump in a variety of topics including the Spike Lee. New York Knicks feud and interview process and several other things so Tony Romo podcast from Monday. We taped it is out in the archives and then This episode here Rachel Nichols will get into it. Right now on the media. Podcast you joining me now. I guess that's been in the works for a long time and we are finally doing it from ESPN's the jump. Rachel Nichols Rachel. How are you thank you so much for having me my pleasure like I said we? We've been going back and forth on this for a long time. I'm glad it's so funny because I actually saw a tweet from you yesterday. That kind of took too. I was taken aback by it when you said that there's only six weeks left basically in the NBA season that little by right the NBA season. I think now is what four hundred days out of the three hundred sixty five days a year. It's always said we got through six the regular season as you and I talk. I feel like the jump has contributed a little bit to the fact that the has now like you said four hundred days a year. 'cause you you know in the off season when there's free agency and Trades and trash-talking and all that stuff going on you guys are there and you're getting all the people that fans WanNa hear from for sure so we've kind of grown together. When the show started it was supposed to be a seasonal show and in fact our first season it was a seasonal show. Just sort of from a little bit before training camp to a little bit after. I don't even remember. I don't think we went into free agency. I think it was a little bit after the draft. I'd have to look back to double check. But that's my memory and then of course now you couldn't do basketball shorts. You didn't include free agency in Yeah I think it's all kind of cyclical there was more going on. We did more that may have created a low more disgusting. There you go did you did you know. Did you think the jump would be as popular as it's been obviously like you said it has grown and I think it's become one of those shows that fans really enjoy But did you expect it to become what it's become honestly? I'm so excited when I hear someone like you say it's popular people are watching it because when you're doing it you're just sort of in the studio right or maybe sometimes a games in your in your little world or bubble of Reno or any all these places that I've spent the last two decades and sometimes it's hard to tell It resonates a lot in my little bubble because I talked to basketball players all day. But it's it's sometimes hard to tell how much it sort of hanging out with the radar to the outside world so I get excited every time we get a little hint from someone that that it is making an impact beyond our circle obviously producers you have co hosts You're the face of the show. How much say do you have in the show? Are you a big part of the planning? And the what goes into. You know who you're going to have on interviews ordeal leave that up to the producers. How much hands in it. Yeah No. It's a big team effort and we all have a big say because we're kind of small group The show really has grown from something pretty small. We were a.

Because because we've made wrong we become we call a hypocrite. I changed my mind because I admit I was wrong. Right and I've got evolved and I think that that's what's what is as there's some really simple things bio mechanics. I say simple. But there's truth. There's absolute truths K.. And I'm trying to share those the truce in a way that people can go Like let me think about that. Let me apply. Oh Yeah Big Goal is to apply these things people can artiste. Even you know I I completely agree. I think that breaking it down that the whole kiss method keeping it Simple stupid. I don't know that I fully agree with that portion that were but the actual actual just telling it like it is I i. I appreciate your live feeds so much. I can't even find the words actually. It's just that it's dude I'm telling you it's that's the future. I think you're right like I actually like the analogy of turning life eat in the classroom and Jeff and I. That's kind of how we do the podcast we. We don't like I try to tell people man like we don't make any financial gains really office. We don't do it for any type of clout like Jeff's barely on fucking social media. We we actually care man we we get together like five. Am and have coffee and start talking about stuff usually wore history or books or something like that some kind of philosophy and molded into this man and a lot of the feedback. We get from people is just. It's teaching it's just teaching methods. There's nothing there's nothing else to. Its US talking to somebody who's putting knowledge college down. We're trying to share the little bit of knowledge that we have accumulated in life. And that's really it and so I just for one when I appreciate you coming on today man to be honest with you absolutely and you know I I I love your whole philosophy on not only oh in the pro on teaching just in general and again it goes back to your idea about process and it's just a it's fabulous to hear it's one of those things like ethic sometimes. Sounds like we kind of intuitively understand it. But you countries you have a really amazing way of like Thomson Not dumbing anything down but explain waiting something. That's very complex and nuanced in just a very easy to understand way and that's a real gift And like I said we're obviously so thankful that you on this morning we personally really impressive what you do so would you like to To wrap up anything we missed or if not does the your social media we we get out of here on with your day. Yeah no I like all all kinds of first of all thank you both also because I think that data whether the population that we'd impacted small large there is an impact already right.

Incidentally he might the divorce all that stuff. It was my fault yet. Not Today's fall not to seal teams fall not my parents fault now my friends fault not my environments. Yeah I'm a big existential philosophical wise so I'm that's kind of quote me as a core. I try not to try not to blame other people. I it comes out but I don't think people take enough accountability and credibility for their own actions. And it's much much easier life to say Well the reason why was this or the re instead of being like well another reason why I'm probably a little fucked up. I think the the idea again. Just you know cultivating that internal locus that you know you are the person that's responsible for you whether that's your successes. Your failures and I've really benefited did personally we We have a Vietnam veteran. Lives just south of here Then you know he's been a really positive influence on me because you know that guy I is just such interest rates were got spit on glittering. He is so positive and he's just like I think just watching. John has helped me be a better person. You know but he likes it he just he puts that out there and I think that's one the big lessons I've really learned from him. Is is a man you know you you. You're the one that's responsible for your own attitude and you're the one the slop over your own outcomes and yet yeah Jeff. I don't know if you've seen the have you seen the Vietnam Kim Burns documentary now that I've seen baseball civil war. I'm not saying that it's amazing. It will it. It is the guy we're talking about John. Lewis Graham was a A Marine who got shot three times Vietnam and he was he was like basically basically the the spotlight in the Ken Burns Documentary and then we cut. Yeah and then come to find out. He lives twenty miles south of I mean he's just he's a fantastically interesting man. I mean he came back in a really involved in the antiwar movement here Kansas rant and like I said and just his perspective on on life and especially considering everything he's been through it just it's absolutely phenomenal and he's just like I said he's a He's one of those people. I think everybody can can learn something from it. I I know he's taught me a lot. Yeah we we've asked the point for us as Veterans Ri- light. It's the process even the process of learning. It doesn't end like we're talking about. Hey Craig training programs great process a compliment process of selection judge. When you get out now what are we have we got either? You'RE GONNA complain or you have a process that enriches yours and other people's lives. Ask The vast I AH I. I'm trying to catch that freshman class because yes I'm talking training. I'm talking personal responsibility. That ability that demand in the team's and then the extension is family. Life right creates a much bigger picture than training but again my my pedestal might opet is away well and if you can get that down though you know what I'm saying if you can lock down your physical fitness you can lock down these programs and one completing your programs are not easy man. I mean they're not they're not. They're not they're not easy programs. They're fucking hard. Yeah of course there. Yeah and the ESA es La Bud vase like Jesus Christ. Yeah they're hard programs man and one. I don't what you you gotta be honest with yourself on your programs to this. Real Accountability needs to to get the best outcome. Yeah you have to be honest with yourself but to if if you crush one of your programs man and you can head into like when I tell people the goal for any type of selection process is when you get off that plane or when you get off that a bus or you get out of that car whatever if you get out of that and you say man all my bills are paid. I'm physically fit. I'm mentally doing okay. I got a book with me to read in my spare time. I'm good to go you can if you can get off. Whatever you're doing with just having a regular other day you're usually going to be set up for success and I think that's why you're programs are so important because it's just like I said I? It's it's really cool. One one the obviously the programs are built the way they are but to You're one of the few people I know who live feeds and actually I was so impressed with you. You would like get up and actually like doc show different like actually showed differ. Move One where you're talking about grip yours ripping out here griffin here griffin here in actual bio mechanics of it and I was like man that that forty five seconds speech right. There was a ninety minute lecture somewhere along the way and people don't they don't grasp that. Yeah and that's why I think that's I think that's that's what's happening right now is that there's parts that statement Einstein said that if you can't take your complex subject explain it in a short time right and and then there's much more to that right lanes it's just not that simple but the point is is that with a real understanding something like 'cause people asking a cow. Hey how can I audit audits. Someone's knowledge or the key of e an athletic trainer strength and it's there's nothing I can really say because basically interrogation arrogation point yet. I don't mean that may be asked to validate someone's knowledge base and I think that's what my goal is. My primary goal is to not oversimplify but put in a context. That people can actually learn in Nashville. I say like instagram whatever. It is as far as I'm concerned. That's a cost among people to approach it that way like I'm not a person -ality certain lot not people do emulate not my intention when I do I appreciate. It's very flattering number. One but the best thing I can offer this world is knowledge college in its sinologist and gives me by people who really cared for me cared about me unchain enough about me to give me to help me to share with we are at the end of the day whether we're parents or teachers like we're teaching our kids we're teaching our friends Example on and that's the thing is no one's asking anyone being angel right.

Yup Right and so I get eighteen year old adage really WanNa do this inc a I got it but if our the CNN. I wouldn't let anyone go through Buzzer. It was twenty twenty one or twenty two will. I'm thirty. I'm thirty one right now. Man and I'm telling you like dead serious. I'm working I I'm I'm putting work work on anybody who's eighteen and twenty one is not yet your forty one is not even close like I. I tell these kids we had this one you the eighteen year old. Oh Yeah Dude. Eighteen year old me was one hundred and fifty five pounds at six three hundred pounds under five feet. Yeah Yeah Yeah Freak in thirty yes thirty one year old. Me's six three to twenty. Yeah yeah no no I tell kids man like a lot. Well the thing is is that when we talk about result wise things. It's one social media as has escalated our time. Line a little bit but people get these thoughts in their head man around sixteen seventeen that life is this sprint and they got a they got it and they don't realize there's no pace there's no plan put for it's a marathon man Jeff and I talk about that Jeff's just turned thirty four and I'll be thirty two in July and we talk about it all the time like dude like we've we've changed a lot in the last ten years but at the same time man it's your we're still so young like yeah yeah like I feel better on. So how many ways at forty one than I ever did a twenty thirty more like I feel way better in everywhere so it is I get I get not not neither of us. None of us another another three of us are so far removed from being eighteen. Ninety right from fell when we're eighteen but the plas offending is this is the recurring cycle. Don't try to reassure that younger generation eighteen nineteen year old kids like what they're doing the process or following is the most valuable. It's it's it's funny. You say that because Tom and I go to we go. We're in school. Both of us right now so most of our classmates are in that eighteen nineteen twenty year old range and I. That's something that I always say. I said it's so funny to me because I look at them and I say that seems like it was almost yesterday to me looking back back. You know ten twelve years and then looking at me. They just think I'm ancient. Oh yes just. It's so funny. How your time changes your perception that but you don't i? I think one of the things I always think about when I compare myself now to the person I was when I was in my early twenties or young when I was eighteen eighteen going into the army is like man you know first of all yes. I'm one hundred percent with you on that the idea of the process and knowing how to first of all engage in it and trust in it but also like you're taking away some those lessons of a failure. You kind of have that approaches these things. I think a lot greater respect and a lot more humility when you have a couple more years under your belt you're not as apt in. Just blow it off and say Oh oh yeah I can breeze through this. CEO and well in the military breeds that as well too I in in certain aspects military breeds as well. Because you under it's when you have the ability at your fingertips to One call catastrophe but to to you know I mean really but to to to At a young age put that much responsibility into a child. Basically and it it. Moore's how how you see things in the future Jeff and I get out all the time and you know we're busy. We're all the time busy man. I mean we're we're scheduling podcasts. At eight in the morning because we have shit to do and You know and we often don't laugh you know but we try to help kids. How could you have kids? That are in twelve credit hours. And they're like my life's ruined. I don't know what to do. I can't I don't any time and I'm like are you have like seventy hours a week to do whatever you want. What are you talking about? It's it's perspective man. It is totally different. It's strange 'cause like my mom and sister revisiting this week and it's I have to catch I self a lot of times in my delivered a certain people because I think that the way that I chose to raise myself with upbringing in my fam- again a a clear is that I don't know why exactly I was wondering where was lie.

We can start feeling as we can stop feeling sorry for ourselves more actors doc was sure she can stop feeling. Sorry for ourselves out of service because you know what all of us join in a time of war right on our own own accord right when we get out like we got there. All three of US know people were close with that came out of out of conflict on select far worse physically than media motion away words man. I'm as a veteran here saying.

That's that's one thing that people don't you know whether for good or bad however you WanNa look at however however you WanNa look at it has molded who you are as a person and I don't you know there's a bunch of facebook groups out there and I think I told Jeff this last last week man I I was actually shown in one of just do just so much complaining man and I'm like are you.

It's it's kind of like the idea like if if you were having surgery do you want somebody who's got emt certificate or somebody's surgeon for twenty years you know it's like you're you're right. The idea of not only is spectrum of like expertise expertise. They're both you talk about like just the spectrum of the process yet either so much like you know. I think first of all a huge part of the problem is right there so much bad bad information out there and then the other part that you alluded to is. There's a lot of good information out there but so much it just gets lost in translation and Yeah so that's I find that very fascinating well and Jeff Hidden. Also what you're saying man is that I don't also I don't think people realize how complex one bio-mechanics are just the course itself. Just just actually learn I. I don't think people realize that. Can you know talking about now. You know any type of ma'am phys whatsoever. I don't think people realize how complex the sciences are and I think that's also something else that gets overlooked looked a lot is that people don't realize the amount of work that actually goes into doing these things I guess I think that that's one of those things Like the TACO population a unit raised in all that it has shown us in this really amazing process like that is why the seal team's special forces in the army side whatever like take any special forces operation in the United. He says like really like we really think about that. You're getting go like EPI era too keen even either probably even arguing Buki People's like liar these units so good like why are they so capable why are they so strategic. It is the process that creates almost guarantees the outcome in so so if we recreate a process with its primary goals to make someone like her performance optimized like really engage with them and really make sure they have a plan in process. What happens at the end of that office? You get exactly what you're looking for. You're getting extremely extremely capable human beings. It's not only expressed the ability of hard work. It express their capacity to focus it expressed their capacity to endure. Were in it. Express their capacity to learn something that was a challenge in so that is the special forces ovulation. It's all those things So if you just take the way that we learn how to skydive shoot or bill demo example. Any of those anything to manifest do a trip via Tripoli live doc. It's a real process and I think that's the big difference. Is the military population law enforcement. Firefighters are used to process right. They're willing to go through it to achieve that whereas a lot of civilians are unfamiliar with that debt of assets in in. So that's why I think that's what you get like programs. I get a lot of civilians that are in a civilian or in a population they air used to a process or they craved it for whatever reason rice like it and when asked why did you join the military while I just felt like I should. Why keep asking why eventually you're just like man? I was compelled to deep down feeling. I just felt like I needed to do why because of God because of whatever reason you how right and I think that's the training is training to compliment that because from a subconscious standpoint not just an over physical stay a subconscious. Damned point is the way that we we. He's sharpen that Right we for those of us that are served that served Europe soar. There's a big difference in the blade right right and that's the process and that's the seal team's special forces that's green bridges out what it is right. It's it's putting a like an absolute edge John that that way because why it has a purpose that purpose or in the process. Not just someone's idea not someone certificate. So what I want to do is take that amazing process that we grew up in increasing trading programs. That are you know what if it doesn't work. What do we do? We make change. Try something else now. Just like didn't work jump off the ship and build. Try someone else right the process. It's kind of A. It's it's a process of both evolution and preservation. And that's what's really fascinating about man that's was really past thing about the whole idea just in general and I die that the I love. I love that analogy. By the way that's fabulous. Yeah they won the day. They are one and the same when you're in the process when you're in in the process it's Cathartic it's not only cathartic but when someone goes hey when you go to a selection process. Oh you made its route. How did you make it true like well? I followed the process. Bud set source for me right but I got physically prepared to handle that. I have to understand that. That's the difference you is if you approach it from a standpoint of fitness. You're probably GONNA fail because the point is all. These selection processes raiders fooled by us. Whatever it is those are election processes? You have to prepare yourself for physically mentally. I don't deal with the mental side directly I'd certainly I can sprinkle some wisdom some some things on it but I want to make sure I want to almost guarantee my successful ventures through that.

"Good morning and welcome to the Kensington Corner. I am Jeff. I'm Tom Today. We are lucky enough to have Jeff Nichols former navy seal performance I founder exercise physiologists theologist and a graduate from university in two thousand and two with us today. Jeff I want to say I honor but second. I don't think we'll you probably know because is your instagram. But how big of a cult following you have man i. It's insane. Yes cotton You know it's very humbling to me because has a story. I guess this is probably a good segue like people will wonder how I came up with the name. Occasionally right in it was just this Kinda I. I just laughed my previous business that I was calling her four and just felt pretty unfulfilled because in a sense like that facilities still exists. Now on the coaches are still there and they focus on youth. Athletes do such a great job of it. I just really had a calling still the same way that I joined the service service Alexa just felt like I had this information. Technology share with tactical population law enforcement police so on mowing the yard and I'm just frustrated so frustrated traded with like what it is and I had this thought my head. It's like just one. Everything focused on performance. I kind of how it will happen. I mean this was never my intention truly. I never really thought I could. House career let alone monetize Training in the way that I do in to the point where I can a lifestyle so I really really fortunate to our grant. I had amazing teachers along along the way but I never intended on being this way. I got so many people that really care. That's what's really great amounts military while forcing inquires the vast majority of folks really do care about their job a really do inherently in so. I think that that's created a inner jenner against an online relationship with you will is so many people doubts on. I guess like the way I deliver information so very much appreciative about i. I would say and I said this before. We started recording. When you talk about right now as far as the pinnacle where guys are really going to I? It's you guys over at thirteen bars. You know and and I when we we push out your guys as programs I mean I cannot tell you one telling you know when I when I led our group know that you we're coming on there's about seven or eight guys there that have already doing your programs especially the hypertrophy one and it is It it's it's so funny to me the Colt following that I see you know and but the thing is that one of those programs where they work you know and there there. I don't they think the difference between you guys that I see from all the other fitness stuff on instagram. which is such a crowded market is that they don't feel cookie cutter you know you they? They're actually feels like there's some thought going into it and the one thing I'll say about your brand that I loved most is that and I told Jeff this right before you got on. I was like dude. You could watch one. His life feeds and come away exhausted. From how much knowledge this guy is pushing out and I'm not sure that people in us being a little older with science backgrounds as well I think that for for us we can kinda dissect it and be like. Wow but I don't think people realize in these live feeds how much information when you're really putting down. I think that you know there's a couple of things on along. That statement is that the first is that I'm forty one years old and I. I've immersed myself in this In this profession even when I was in the teams for eleven years is this. It's always been beyond a hobby for me. It's been a real passion because just fascinated how the human body works dot. You know the United States all the time like we you have your despite the flatter ridiculousness we've put people on get in. We did that with very concise mathematics. A you granted the human body is incredibly Nevis. And we're not like I'm Saints Very Agile Mobile and we're not exactly meet Hannity direct like we are machine but in terms of simple as like how does the by set contract and how do we create more force. Those are those are fundamental laws of physiology by mechanics. We no longer have to make make up things we don at all in so. That's why just scratched my head in the amount of misinformation shared it None of quality information that good coaches and trainers will disseminate weather. Social Media in person is really overshadowed by the lack of real autry Being as the point is like I am good at facts and the reason why is because one hundred percent programs rams are derived from bio-mechanics visits right in so I don't have to gas. It just takes a long time to write a program. I the first program aerob- rope. It took me ninety six hours to write. It took me seventy hours just to do the math yet. And it was just because I had I want something like you said that it might subtle one hundred percent of the time because it has to. It's mathematically driven so I think that that's what Pe- the best of the tax for space right we're dealing explosives you're dealing skydiving. You're doing tax extra Precision in that community really demands and deserves physician so so I felt like I owed it to them to give something they themselves than could enjoy vast some knowledge into they can look at it and if they wanted to do the math they they could if they wanted if they didn't WanNa do. The math still can exactly well. I kind of choose your own adventures kind of try to create will so you know. And that's the one thing I keep hearing. Is this this idea of community and that its community driven in. I mean honestly to me. It's like that's like a very symbiotic relationship correct as a trainer right you couldn't have picked better communities be interacting with whether it be military law enforcement fire because like you said they're vested interest in so taking that level physical excellence and you know to be able to perform their jobs. The highest standard got my youngest brother. He's a firefighter here. One of the suburbs of Kansas City. And that's that's one of the things I know. He constantly focuses on as you know the idea that to be the best at his job. It demands ends. You know it demands a level of physical fitness in. Excellence that young you really do. I mean you have to dedicate yourself to that if you want to be the pit year game you you bet they just think that as much as I love for them I love appreciate Agus. The purity of what sport is before entertaining came in human idiocy sprinkled in there right but I love four and it's not that they don't deserve you know the attention the accolades and the coaches That's a looking at. The talks will silent going well. What Obama is massively under service ovulation? That really likes. Let's get beyond the cliches folks. These people were this. This country specifically could not function in a safe manner without them right in this country can vary very efficiently. Survive without sport flew in my opinion they deserve serve. There's no other population on planet that deserves quality concise truthful information when it comes to their self preservation preservation. The brothers and sisters next. That's the facts. Never get away snap because they deserve it more than anyone planning now. I one hundred percent agree agree with that. I think that's actually a good point because I don't think One a lot of times when we were talking about misinformation. I think that it's it's a little different because when you look at how easy it is now to Attain personal training certificate. And how. Oh He's it is to kind of just put that information out in the space and when you have guys like you Kinda have to wade through that. I think. That's what draws me me to talk to you more than anything because you can actually sit down with you and tell you give a shit about the community that you're talking to when your own life when you're answering stuff and you're you're talking about law enforcement your talk. There was one episode. I was watching. A guy was asking you about Rocking and talking about the hits and you were talking about stretches to do afterwards words and things the amount of prep that I think comes back and you said your forty one the experience but the amount of experience that you put in to your a craft. I think that's what wows me more than anything because they're so much thought. That goes behind what you're doing and I it's it actually bewilders me because I tried to kind of think that way too but the amount of preparation that goes into your programs I think that I it it's fascinating uh-huh type of Sometimes can bite off more than you can chew. And here's another. I mean by that. Is that like I feel like I can concise. They articulate what I'm trying to do right I would have an NFL claritin. I guess real thorough. So how do I take back. Thoroughness run S.. Put It in a PDF guide people. So it's like okay now. There's a big gap as a really big gap and information so that that's why that's that's why my website is created from the video sample rights like okay. There's a stopgap in the middle. The now people don't have time can't afford whatever it is to Siemian Ersan. I'd that's my extension yet and I think that that's what people are hungry for. They're hungry for the spectrum just in the same way that hungry for longtime communication like. We're doing doing now. They're tired of the buzzfeed tired of Cliche. There today are because why because we've gone through that for the decades as yet it now or two point especially coming off of a over a decade of conflict that may have been deeply entrenched in now it's like licking our wounds. The heal up. Because what's going to happen. We're GONNA you know the next generation will not our next with Upcoming generation is going to have to go back to Syria Syria Iran or some other shit country in deal with the nonsense that our government is creating so like but on the standpoint of this is I i what a great purpose. What a great process of holistically affecting these individuals? It's like the freshman class of the football team affect them the best because some points Riley. Talk about You know what's the character the team or This it's like you're never gonNA trae eight a real process on unless you affect the youngest generation and and and how do I. How do I know that this is true? This is true in every selection process process military in the world is because it's indoctrination right that real deep indoctrinated ages right and who are the gatekeepers. How's it been through it right? Not Politicians not teachers not not atmospheric trainers like real professionals are the gatekeepers and I think that fitness needs to be set up that way too in the same way you stay in college efforts right. The gatekeeper are the people that are entrusted by the university by the team coach. It's like I'm just I'm just over the fact that people can can get that two or three day cert now. They are considered experts.

"Nichols. I am the proud Mama. Bear of a ten year old Trans Kid and I am a fierce opposition kits and ally to the Trans Community and I have a fundraising project called the Trans Love Project where I raise funds for. Lgbt organizations awesome. I'm so excited you're here today so that we can chat about all that you do and your story. I wanted for having me. Yeah of course I want to start by talking about win your son. I don't want to mention his name if you're not okay with that Protect his identity. So I I WanNa talk about when he came to you and I said Hey mom I think I'm trans like tell us that story and how you felt when that happen. Sure so for him because he came out so young it was not as cut and dry I think as some other conversations that trans kids have with their appearance on. He started showing a pretty fierce rejection to everything. We we label is female gendered from such a young age. I mean he was two to three years old when he was really showing signs of just liking everything in the boy quote unquote sector and things like that. So it was kind of a combination of Discussions and observations and as a parent. I really went through. I think a lot of US parents of trans kids go through the phases of well. He must be a tomboy. Or you know. Maybe he'll be a lesbian and we have this whole process for ourselves. That wasn't until he was about six that he really started to begin having the language and even then we kind of needed help from a medical professional to help us both understand the language so it was a combination Like I said with a medical professional that kind of helped us to really identify what was going on and For me it was a reaction of mostly fear in the beginning because of all the hate that we hear about towards the Trans Community and it was just this reaction like oh my Gosh. I went way too big with What this was going to look like I went way too. Big just imagining all the worst Took me a little while to really understand it myself and research and reach out to other parents of trans kids especially online goodness for the Internet in this day and age so it was a process. I mean it it was. It was really a process in the beginning of just understanding. So there wasn't any one moment. There were many moments of impact. And but you know all good and all very beneficial and just led me to this beautiful education but there were some ups and downs in the beginning just because it was really a lack of understanding for me but for him it was just the this magic of changing his name and his pronouns and it was magic. He went from very side. Shy Self. Harming child to one. That was magnus net magnificent and happy and well adjusted and and sure of himself and confidential. So on for me. That's all that mattered was that he was happy. Then that makes me so happy because I run into a lot of people who they appearance like mine now. My father is gone. He has been gone since before. Transitioned but I basically other than my grandfather have lost all my my blood family and it was due to being trans and I didn't come out until I was thirty and I always knew something was different but I just didn't have a very supportive family so it makes me happy when I hear a younger trans people come out. And they have supportive families I know I have a trans brother-in-law and he's only fifteen and although his mom is okay with me he she is not okay with him being trained and she's not to him Shooting I I have known him since he was about eleven and at that time he already You know said that you know he identified as a boy I tried to talk her into you. Know putting him on hormone blockers and things like that because he he had just started. I think or or was about to just start You know female puberty and He hit his mom just went into lower so it it hurts because she doesn't you know he now he's fifteen so you know he's growing A chest and You know things are happening that he is causing him severeness foreign. He's he such a sad kid. He stays in his bedroom all the time. He's you know he's depressed I don't know if you sell farms because he's always Covered up you know. He always you know he's an full full clothing So it makes me happy to hear when there are support appearance out there For the transient. Because I think that's it's so important because the stats show that you know. The youth are more likely to self harm or commit suicide if they don't have a loving in supporting family presence I'm not a not just the thing right like first and foremost. I'm so sorry that you experienced that types that type of rejection and I know just because I I I know you and I know your fiance and I know that you've you've found a chosen family which to me chosen family. Because I've had to do the same thing dillon. I have had to create our own chosen family. We lost a lot of friends and family so but I can't identify with how that seals as a child should be rejected. And so I'm so sorry that that was your reality and it makes me so sad. I I will never understand that And for your brother-in-law's well it. It's it's very sad to me. And that's why such a visible public advocate and an ally activists because I hope to reach these parents that I mean listen. I was one of those parents in the beginning. I didn't get any of this. I was a I. Don't have a liberal household. I was raised in a conservative Republican household. I was raised with privilege. I was raised with a huge lack of diversity. I mean I didn't have a it makes me laugh when people say that. This is some sort of a liberal agenda. I don't even know what that means. You know so i. I have a hard time when I was one of those parents. That didn't understand this but when you hear these statistics that you just mentioned when you when you see the hurt when you see your child hurting how can you not do everything in your power to learn and educate yourself. That's something that that's one reason why I'm here. That's one reason why I'm an advocate. That's one reason. Why the voice because if I can reach other parents like yours and you know like your in-laws if I can reach those parents and say listen you know? Just listen to your child. Just listen I mean it's not that hard and this journey I think for so many of us as parents were scared of what all this beans and we we. We don't lean into it when we when we should. We have to lean into who our children are instead of who we design them to be in this manufacturer fantasy of ours. It's you know it's not that hard disturbing these beautiful. If you allow it to be so I. I'm sorry that that was your reality but just know you know. Obviously there are appearance that are fighting to change the narrative. Yeah and there are. There are a lot of people out there that You know have Trans Children or may be trans himself That are you know fighting for that and I do See that out in our community and It's just hard You know when Late I talked about it. recently That my grandma was my best friend grind. I was raised a lot of my life by my grandma and She just she she's just has never been able to accept it in the last four years. And it's gotten to the point now where I do talk to my grandpa because he is accepting on me but I just don't I just don't talk to her Because it was causing too much hurt and In a heartache. On my end and it's very hard for me to not understand why you were my you know. Guardian Angel in a lot of really you know when I was a child and because I'm finally choosing to live my life the way I've always seen myself in you you know you're not very accepting and it makes me question. Why parents do that if you're I mean she she's not technically my mom. She's my grandma but she was like my mom growing up and I just. It's hard to understand when I do see people like you and your son and how Warm and welcoming you are with him and and although I'm sure you struggle in the beginning you expected that especially you know with the older generation. I expect that But just you know you win and learned an educated yourself where like my grandma has not done that. Even if I have provided her the resources right learn about it I think the like you stated. The first thing she was was concerned with was how society would see me. I don't think she ever realized You know how she sees me in some of the things that she has said and some of the things I've heard other Trans folks and trains youth Say that their family members have said JUST BREAKS..

We've got some medical issues looks like it looks like the car ended up hitting a wall. But they may have some other medical issues that they have to take care of. So that means that they are going to be closing the eastbound to northbound one seventy five ramp in the stadium interchange, try and take control of that whole area. It would be your best bet would be to just avoid that whole area because they may very well need to close the westbound to northbound as well.
