Catalyst Health, Wellness and Performance Coaching
This one was personal. Growing up, the Miami Dolphins Larry Csonka was a childhood hero who's picture hung on the wall and who's incredible performance on the field was "must see TV" each week. As a fullback for the undefeated '72 Miami Dolphins, he lead the league in yards/carry and helped carry the Dolphins to 3 straight Super Bowls under the greatest coach of all time - Don Shula.In this engaging and thoughtful interview, Larry shares his life (during and after football), the lessons he's learned, and how he's optimizing his own health & wellness at the age of 74. They say never to meet your heroes as you're bound to be disappointed. This discussion was clearly an exception to that typical standard...For more information about Larry Csonka, his Alaska DreamTrip tours, booking him for a speaking engagement and more, please see https://larrycsonka.com/For more information about health & wellness coaching certification or other related details, please see https://www.catalystcoachinginstitute.com/
