AOF:247 George Briones on how his mind shifted after a weekend of running, on training, and on life!
Athlete On Fire
George Briones has a unique perspective on life. We had a chance to talk about training, mindset, pain, digital detoxes and so much more. George works with fitness, training, and lifestyle brand, Soflete. His words:As a recon marine I live by this principle;“Jack of all trades and master of none.”My will to personally explore the different worlds of fitness has allowed me to have a unique perspective on strength and conditioning. I don’t always train in the gym. Don’t always train outside, preparing for outdoor adventures. However, marrying these two environments together has offered me the chance to explore the depths of what human performance entails. I have a wide range of personal experience and direct coaching experience with tactical athletes, functional fitness, weightlifting, ultra-endurance events, and general fitness enthusiasts.
George and I go deep into some topics that we share a passion for. We hit the importance of taking care of yourself to to take care of those around you to the best of your ability. We dive into the importance of taking action towards those you claim to care about & how a phone call, conversation, or time spent could be the very thing that gives them the hope, meaning, or purpose to keep moving forward. Which led us discussing the importance of sharing your lessons and experiences with others.

We discuss habits and routines, the idea that time is an illusion, and the importance of communication in general but most importantly with ourselves. What this all came from was the question we continue to ask and explore, “How can I be my best self?"
For episode 70 George and I dig into the idea and action of preparation. We talk about what you can and can’t prepare for, why it’s important to prepare but also why it’s important to know how to deal with being unprepared. We talk through all of this and more using personal events to paint the picture of how preparing physically is what leads to your mental and emotional preparation.
