Coming at you from a different angle this week, with 3 folks that are well versed in the ways of fitness, specifically CrossFit.
Brooke Ence is a CrossFit Games competitor, and she's twice as strong as you'll ever be. Her husband, Marston, works for CrossFit Media, was an Olympic hopeful, and is the most funny least assuming person you'll ever meet. Tommy Marquez is producer for CrossFit Media, a host on the CrossFit Games update shows and a wealth of knowledge and wisdom.
Getting to sit down with these 3 for 30 min was a treat. Some of the topics we discussed are below:
Italian Pro Skier and Sports Psychology PhD Student Matteo Luzzeri is my guest this week, and we get to talk about some pretty sweet stuff. Mainly, stuff that not only applies to sports (water skiing and others) but also to life.
We get to talk about youth and teen skiing (and sports in general) and maybe some of the things you can do as a child (and parent) to stay stoked on life and keep from getting burned out. We want people to stay in water sports for life, so we cover some things that might help kids and parents keep things from getting too serious, too early on.
Matteo is smart, much smarter than I am...but he has a great ability to keep complex concepts simple, so everyone can understand.
So, he may end up being our "FlowPoint Professor" and we might have him on here every couple months.

This week I had the chance to get on a call with John Horton, the founder and owner of www.BallOfSpray.com.
I've known John since I was a kid, and this was fun to kinda not worry about the clock (this one is long....) and just talk about whatever we felt like.
-State of the Sport of Water Skiing
-Growing the Sport
-Man Made Ski Lakes (his father built the first man-made water ski lake, ever)
-Technique and mechanics of skiing
-Pork Tacos and Coronas
Let us know what you think and give us some suggestions on who you might wanna hear next on the Podcast!
Thanks for listening guys!
Wade Cox is one of the greatest water skiers of all time. He became the youngest skier to ever win a Pro Event, and held that honor for over 2 decades. Wade has been involved with HO Skis for 30 years, and continues to teach and coach water skiing at the Orlando Water Sports complex, as well as traveling clinics around the country. We got to discuss everything from how he got his start in the sport, to who inspired and pushed him to become the skier and person he is today.
Hope you enjoy this one, and let us know who you want on the podcast in the future!
