On this week’s episode I got to sit down with Josh Duntz to discuss the amazing work he and his team at Stasis are doing using the power of breathwork. We discuss why breathwork has gained so much recent notoriety and the science behind the practice. Josh initially developed his passion for breathwork while serving in the Navy as a member of the special operations community. As Josh transitioned out of the military he founded Stasis as a way to share the benefits of breathwork in the field of human performance and as a way to improve mental health and sleep. After Covid-19 hit, he and the team at Stasis started using breathwork to help patients recover and improve lingering respiratory effects related to the virus. Be sure to check out the work Josh and his team are doing at https://stasisperformance.com/.

On this episode Tom welcomes on Josh Duntz, Navy EOD & Special Operations Veteran, and Founder of Stasis Performance. Linking up remotely via teleconference, this episode really touches base on some important topics that, quite frankly, need to be discussed more frequently and seriously in this day and age. This episode begins with Josh and his background, the importance of exposure training and breathing practices, to some good ol' Army and military reminiscence. Getting deeper into conversation, Tom and Josh discuss the extreme importance and awareness of mental health stigma, cannabis activism, the view in which both military and civilian lifestyles view and accept these, and of course the societal problems and stigmas that exist as a result.

Josh Duntz Part 2 - A Chilling Journey to Entrepreneurship
Veteran Influencer Podcast
As someone who used to work with explosives for a living and has trained physically throughout his career as a member of Special Operations teams, Josh Duntz is no stranger to physical and mental stress. In today’s episode we catch up about his transition from the Navy's Explosive Ordnance Disposal community via a remote-work sales role facilitated by the DoD Skill Bridge program. Josh and I recorded our first conversation in August of 2019 while he was still on Active Duty. I wanted to follow up with Josh now to hear about his experiences and offer listeners some insight into how this program works. At the end of his fellowship, Josh made the decision to transition again and chose entrepreneurship as his path. He is now working hard to launch Stasis, a Human Performance Optimization company focused on delivering high-tech, self-serve ice baths to gym owners and other fitness practitioners. We discuss how Josh and his team are inventing new technology and software which allows users to pay by the minute to jump in an ice bath at their local gym or health club, versus the far more expensive and liquid nitrogen based cryosauna offered elsewhere. Through a combination of technology innovation, facilitated by a mobile app, Josh is trying to offer customers a way to expose themselves to healthy stress without needing to pay for an expensive membership or subscription. We talk about the benefits of cryotherapy, and the advantages of a cold-water bath treatment versus the more expensive liquid nitrogen based cryosauna, as well as how routine exposure to stress can create a buffer to deal with the slings and arrows of everyday life.

Josh Duntz - EOD Master Technician to DoD SkillBridge Fellow
Veteran Influencer Podcast
Josh Duntz is a Navy EOD Master Technician experienced in leading small, high performing and dynamic teams of special operations personnel. Josh has done seemingly everything possible to engage proactively with his military-to-civilian transition. Over the last couple of years he has finished his bachelor’s degree, completed the 6-month transition fellowship with The Honor Foundation, worked with Elite Meet to network with other veterans, and is jumping into a DoD SkillBridge internship with a company on the west coast he was introduced to through Shift.org. Josh is also a founder and member of the leadership team at the Navy Special Operations Foundation, a not-for-profit organization which ensures Special Operations personnel and their families have the tools needed to overcome the challenges they face. I wanted to talk to a currently transitioning service member like Josh because his perspective is based on a very modern, holistic approach to leveraging transition resources. During the last couple of years Josh has been deliberate about his planning and preparation for a career after the military which has positioned him ideally to get a job that he's excited about that will allow him and his wife to relocate back home to Tampa in a work-from home business development role.
