Show notes (please see Timestamps below for more detail)

It’s been one year of the Greg Bennett Show, formally Be with Champions. And Greg has had the privilege to have the most wonderful conversations, with the world’s greatest athletes, coaches, doctors, entertainers, and entrepreneurs. It's simply incredible that these incredible people have been willing to come on the show and chat. Some Greg has known but many he's only come to know from these conversations. Greg is tremendously grateful to all of them for coming on and for you for listening and supporting the show.

Today’s episode is a little different, Greg is joined by a guest host, in fact, he'll ask most of the questions, former professional athlete and multiple world champion, now businessman and entrepreneur Chris McCormack. Chris like Greg is passionate about all sports and high performance. He is the CEO of the Mana sports and entertainment group, Co-founder of the Superleague Triathlon series, the President of the Bahrain 13 endurance team. He was on episode 8 of the show and an episode you really should go check out.

In this episode, Greg and Chris discuss this podcast, review the year and many of the episodes, and then due to several requests, look at Greg's journey and process into the world of endurance sport and why he's doing what he's doing.

Greg discusses some of the highlights of the episodes in year 1, and who he'd love to get on the show, and where he'd like the show to go. Greg describes his journey in the sport and gradually finding his strengths and taking control of his life. Greg and Chris conclude by discussing the fundamentals of high performance. Together they share many stories of the past and their shared journeys.
