Episode 95: Ryan Kent Talks In-depth about his time on The History Channel’s “The Selection”

By | Podcast | No Comments

All I can say about this episode is wow… You are going to hear how 12 days of nonstop evolutions and tests of mental toughness changed Ryan Kent not only as an athlete, it also:

– Taught him new levels of mental and physical toughness

– How he now views the world

– How to never judge a book by it’s cover

–  The importance of a TEAM

– Going from cocky and confident to 100% selfless

We talk about how he got through being shoved in a box…multiple times, drown proofing, enduring 12hrs of continuous bone chilling cold, what made hime take off on his own on the last evolution, the difficulty adjusting back into “the real world” the first few weeks after the show, and much more.

This is hands down one of the coolest episodes Miles and I have had the honor to record and we are excited to share it with you!!
