Recently, Spartan Games Founder Joe de Sena and Navy SEAL Commander and SEALFIT founder Mark Divine declared that I was “The Fittest and Mentally Toughest 66 Year Old In The World “. It isn’t true but it is nice to be in the conversation. In my 20’s, I was an Air Force Special Ops Pararescueman and one of the original Ironman Triathletes from year 3 in 1980. After the Air Force, I became the University of Nevada Athletic Chaplain for 20 years, a Pastor and Business Consultant that took me to 30 nations speaking and coaching business leaders. I also pioneered a weekly one hour TV Program on my Regional FOX station on statewide social and leadership issues for 22 years. Because of the challenges and pressures business leaders encounter, I developed a business for Crises Coaching for Leaders in Personal Crises. I was appointed by two Nevada Governors to serve 4 year terms on Nevada State Judicial Ethics Commission overseeing Judges and Attorneys in the State. At 63, after 11 Ironmans, I decided to do an experiment to see if I could reverse physical decline and get as strong as I was in my 20’s. I spent three years training at SEALFIT in Encinitas Ca. The experiment worked. I found 5 major endurance events that I was told I was too old to attempt. I finished all five. The last 3 were a 50 hour Non stop Navy SEAL Hell Week experience. Then 3 weeks later I finished my 12th Ironman and then 6 weeks later I finished “The World Marathon Challenge” which is 7 Marathons in 7 Days on 7 Continents. When I speak to Business Groups I speak on “Developing Leaders” and “Pit Falls Leaders Face”. When I speak to over 50 year old groups, I speak on “You Choose How You Age”. When I speak to young people , I speak on the 20X Principle which states: There is 20 times more potential in you than you’ve ever allowed someone to bring out of you. When I speak to military young men and women and athletes, I am known for being an expert on Mental Resilience and Mentally Toughness. Presently, I train Air Force Special Warfare students and Navy SEAL Candidates in San Antonio Texas and Southern California. My Book is entitled: BEYOND AVERAGE. My second Book: DREAM BIG.... TRAIN SMART is coming out soon. Iam a Father of 5 wonderful kids !
