Ep 115: Building a Different Kind of Strength with Michael Cazayoux

Rebel Performance Radio

Building yourself up physically (packing on muscle, getting stronger, becoming faster and more powerful, etc.) is a concept you'll hear us preach about at Rebel quite a bit. The type of strength we aren’t coaching on a typical day is the strength that you can’t physically see – the spiritual strength that exists on the inside. This is why I wanted to have Michael Cazayoux on the podcast to unpack his health and fitness journey because he brings a ton of important information to the table that I think goes unnoticed in our industry.From winning multiple team titles at the CrossFit Games, to working as a strength and conditioning coach for LSU, to co-owning a fitness company, Brute Strength, to running Working Against Gravity with his wife, to now running Soul Searching Adventures where he takes groups of men out on epic outdoor adventures to do deep introspective work together... All to say, Michael's lived and learned a lot. The meat and potatoes of our conversation are surrounding fitness, health, and strength and how the three have evolved with him over time. We've all have had moments of reflection where we feel lost when transitioning from one phase of life to another, especially when our health and wellness are involved. Listen in to hear Michael unpack what it means to have an identity shift, what that actually looks like for a former athlete, and exercises you can do to become more intentional and gain insight for yourself.What You'll Learn in this Episode:[08:07] The story behind how Michael got started with Soul Searching Adventures[09:22] How Michael thinks about health and fitness today compared to earlier days as a strength and conditioning coach and while competing in CrossFit[12:27] The identify shift you experience when you stop being a high-level, competitive athlete[13:21] The new values Michael has on fitness[17:48] Being self aware enough when your goals and priorities have shifted from one phase to the next[19:27] What it means to transcend something[20:36] The ability to get out and express yourself in nature[22:31] Using physical challenges to gain insight in other areas of life[23:41] Two challenges for a former athlete in a reflective space[25:37] Exercises to become more intentional and feel more comfortable in reflection[31:24] Michael’s main goal to deliver in his Soul Searching AdventuresLinks: Explore our free training samples here: https://www.rebel-performance.com/training-templates/Follow Michael Cazayoux here: https://www.instagram.com/michaelcazayoux/Follow James Cerbie here: https://www.instagram.com/jamescerbie/Check out Michael’s podcast here: https://apple.co/3tI0a42Subscribe to Michael’s newsletter here: https://mcaz.substack.com/Check out Soul Searching Adventures here: https://soulsearchingadventures.comFollow Rebel here: https://www.instagram.com/therebelperformance/Join our Rebel FB group here: https://bit.ly/3KfGk6AWant to learn more about the Rebel Performance Training Team?

Episode 54: Overcoming Early Addiction and How to Foster Deeper Connections with Michael Cazayoux!

Shots to the Dome

Addiction is a tough monkey on your back no matter who you are but battling addiction at 13?! Adolescence is hard enough but add substance abuse to the mix, it makes our guest Michael's story that much more profound. Michael had a great upbringing and fantastic parents so this probably isn't the story you expected. We don't want to give away too much here but through his battle and road through recovery, Michael found fitness and Crossfit and became pretty damn good at it. So good he's actually a 2 time team champ and a big deal in the Crossfit realm. What we get into with friendships and relationships is next level. We talk specific and actionable steps (you know us here at Shots to the Dome and DLDNation) to foster better and deeper connections with those you care about most.
