During this conversation, Alex shares a story about when he first became aware of the power of the mind on performance with his own frustrations for years of trying to break the 4 minute mark for the 1500m. Alex shares how his experience in a track race then became the pursuit of determining just what role the brain and mind play in determining our physical performance and potential.
Alex takes us deep into the 10 years of research gathering and writing to produce what is now ENDURE - the New York Times Best Selling Publication. We take a journey back to Alex knocking on leading sport Scientist’s doors like Tim Noakes, observing the Comrades Marathon, pursuing the world’s best academics across the world including Australia, Alex’s own attempts at maximising his own performance and the science and the great stories that you will find inside Endure.
If you have ever wondered whether our individual limits are set by the heart and the head or by our muscles then you get really enjoy this. In this conversation, we will have you re-think restrictions, it will have you re-think your own possibilities and your own potential. I’m excited to bring in this conversation with Alex Hutchinson, New York Times Best Selling Author of Endure Mind, Body and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance.
