Brute Strength Podcast: The Fikowski Story

Students, you’re going to want to get your notebooks ready because Brent “The Professor” Fikowski is taking us to school on the Brute Podcast this week.

Brent is a three-time CrossFit Games athlete, placing second in the 2017 Games, and after this episode, you’ll understand how he’s remained one of the sport’s top four male athletes since 2016.  

Even though Brent is “The Professor,” he brings a mindset to the game that can’t be taught—the mindset of a competitor. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t had his ups and downs in the sport.

Listen to this week’s episode to learn more about what you can do to emulate that mindset, what it’s like to compete against the fittest athletes in the world and how he almost left CrossFit in 2015.
