Episode 101 – Lt. Col. (Retired) Bryan Price, Ph.D. – Founder Top Mental Game/Executive Director of the Buccino Leadership Academy at Seton Hall University

In Episode 101, the Two Fit Crazies have the honor of hosting, in studio, a Brian’s longtime friend and friend of the show, Bryan Price to hear of his Forrest Gump-like journey in athletics, military, leadership roles, coaching, his love of #sports and Mental Skills Training, which has become his passionate pursuit as he enters civilian life. As intriguing as ever, Bryan will have you slapping the floor ready to “D Up” anything that comes your way.

Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Bryan C. Price, Ph.D. is the founder of Top Mental Game, a provider of professional coaching and mental skills training for athletes in high school, college, and the professional ranks. He is also the founding Executive Director of the Buccino Leadership Institute at Seton Hall University. Prior to starting Top Mental Game and joining Seton Hall in 2018, he spent the first half of a 20-year Army career in operational assignments as an Apache helicopter pilot, including combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. From 2012-2018, he was an Academy Professor in the Department of Social Sciences and the Director of the Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) at the U.S. Military Academy. He is known for his published research on terrorist leadership and organizational behavior, and he is the author of Targeting Top Terrorists: Understanding Leadership Removal in Counterterrorism Strategy by Columbia University Press. He holds a B.S. from the U.S. Military Academy in U.S. history, an M.A. in international relations from St. Mary’s University (TX), and an M.A. and Ph.D. in political science from Stanford University.  In his role as the CTC Director, he was asked to testify in front of Congress and frequently briefed the nation’s top counterterrorism leaders, including the Secretary of Defense, Directors of the CIA, and multiple combatant commanders. At West Point, he was a three-year starter and team captain on the baseball team, setting school records in career and season runs scored as well as hits in a season. A three-time All-Patriot League selection, Price was named on the Patriot League All-Decade Team (1990-2000). He also served as an assistant coach (infield/first base coach) on the team during the 2010 and 2013 seasons, which included a Patriot League Championship and a trip to the NCAA Regionals.

Bryan truly is an incredible man.

We Thank You Bryan for your service to our country and for all that you contribute to the world at large.

Roberta Groner - World Class Runner/Full Time Nurse/Mother of Three - Episode 96

Two Fit Crazies & A Microphone Podcast

Episode 96 – Roberta Groner – World Class Runner – Full Time Nurse – Mother of 3

In Episode 96 the Fit Crazies have the honor of rapping with the ridiculously fast and remarkably humble Super Mom, Roberta Groner, age 41, of Randolph, NJ. Literally, just 2 hours off the plane home, Roberta gives us the low down on her phenomenal, news making 2:29:06, 5th place performance against a world class field at the Rotterdam Marathon.

To put it simply, Roberta has a story for the ages. After competitive high school and, albeit shortened, collegiate careers, running went away. Roberta spent the next decade building her career in nursing and starting a family. But a flame was rekindled after joining some office cohorts and running the Pittsburg Half Marathon just 10 years ago. This led to a marathon in Chicago and an impressive 3-hour 12-minute (3:12) debut. But she was just getting started, a Sub 3 hour run in her second marathon was followed by races in the 2:40’s and then a true burst onto the scene with her 2:37 victory at the Mohawk Hudson River Marathon in 2016. Just Flying!!!!

All of this, along with a 2:30:38, 3rd place finish at the California International Marathon in 2017 has stamped Roberta’s place among the nation’s and world’s elites.

In fact, we’d bet that if the 41-year-old, full time nurse, divorced mother of three had rubbed a lamp and was granted running wishes, Roberta probably would have sold herself short in what she wished for.

What’s it like to run a 2:29 and an IAAF/Olympic Standard?

At 41 years of age, while still working full time and a divorced mother of three, how does she fit it all in?

What are the differences in training blocks as she continues to grow as a runner?

What is it like working with a new coach in Steve Magness?

Do her boys know how cool their mom is?  

What are her nutrition and recovery routines like?

What is her advice for and/or secret to success?

And most importantly; What’s Next???? #KFG

 

Whatever your role in athletics or fitness or life, Roberta’s story is not to be missed!

Get Your Inspiration Here, In Episode 96!

Marvin Towler - Trainer/Speaker/Instigator/Athlete - Episode 28

“Growing up, “instigator” always had a negative connotation…

…So I looked up what it means. And it’s someone who stirs the pot in a good way; and instigates change.” ~ Marvin Towler

Two Fit Crazies and a Microphone Podcast

Episode 28 with Marvin Towler – Trainer/Speaker/Instigator/Athlete

In Episode 28, Christine and Brian sit down for a fun and thought-provoking conversation with admitted instigator Marvin Towler. Marvin is a talented Success Coach, coaching others in clarifying goals and working towards personal and professional success. He has worked with some of the biggest names in the personal development industry. Along his path to self-mastery he came across Gary Keller and Jay Papasan’s #1 best seller The ONE Thing, which had such an impact on him that he decided to become one of the first 40 people in the world to be certified to teach the powerful principals of productivity.

We discuss the importance of setting practical goals, developing positive habits, the myth of productivity via multi-tasking and the interesting benefits of having experienced adversity in our lives. And much, much more!

And one interesting side note, Marvin becomes our second straight guest to forgo a legal career to pursue greater passions in life. Ah, The Universe!!!!  A life-long student and consciousness explorer, Marvin Towler is constantly evolving and unfolding!
