You don’t have to get old. Follow the principles of the Life Athlete—where pain is not gain, where less is more—and attain your ideal fitness, for life. A way to strengthen and quiet your mind so your mind and body work together toward your goals. A “thinking man’s athlete,” Peter Shmock developed his Life Athlete program—a plan and practice for maximum achievement, fitness, and confidence–by constantly evolving it over his decades long commitment to fitness and helping people become their best as a two-time Olympic athlete, strength and conditioning coach for the Seattle Mariners and University of Oregon Athletic Hall of Fame member. In this Podcast, Peter brings in guests and friends who are leaders in the fields of health, fitness, athletics and business who will help you follow the principles of the Life Athlete: a better way to stay fit, have more energy, and perform better in day-to-day life.

Nourishing words about our bodies and our souls
Thank you, Peter and Elia, for these nourishing and profound words about what it means to be human, to move our bodies, to participate in communities of like-minded people, to surf the waves of life and seek betterment, whatever that means right now. I know I am going to like a podcast series when I am immediately looking forward to the next installment!
What a beautiful way to discuss some very universal truths. Great first podcast. Looking forward to more challenging information from a man who clearly has done a lot more self work than the majority of us
The best hour you can give yourself is this podcast
I have worked with both Peter and Elia, they are both accomplished in their life's work and are natural coaches and teachers who naturally improve the quality of anyone's life from where they are now. Peter brings the determination and singular skill of an Olympian, and the experience of a seasoned trainer to tailor an individual experience of growth for everyone he meets.
Not many professional dancers can also teach as effectively and joyfully as Elia. He truly believes that anyone can enjoy and learn to dance, from the most uncoordinated and self conscious as myself, to the young prodigies he has nurtured. His energy and spirituality shared through dance is a gift he gladly shares with everyone. Listen to this hour and benefit from it for the rest of your life.
