Community, Coaching & Competing w/ CrossFit Milford’s Jason Leydon – Episode 213


We’re back with another great interview this week, this time with CrossFit® Games Coach Jason Leydon.

We discuss how to build a strong community in your gym, how to train and prepare athletes for competition, and how he led his team to a 2nd place finish at the CrossFit® Games last year.

Jason coaches a LOT of athletes. He currently has 4 teams qualified for Regionals, 8 individuals, 5 Masters athletes qualified for the Games, and has coached multiple athletes at the CrossFit Games for the passed 6 years.

We talk about the differences in what training might look like for some one who has no interest in competing and just wants to be fitter, versus a year of training for someone who would like to compete on the highest level.

For competitors, he walks us through each training phase through a year, talks a little about what the focus is for each phase and why, how to progress, and what to look out for.

Jason is a big believer in developing mentally strong athletes. We chat about how he approaches each of his athletes differently when it comes to motivational talk and what methods he uses to help build “testicular fortitude” for all his clients.

If you’re a gym owner looking to build a stronger community and bring the best out of your coaches, this is a great episode to watch.

If you’re a coach looking to prep your client for a competition, this is a great episode to watch.

If you’re an athlete looking to bring your training to the next level, this is a great episode to watch.

Be ready, things get passionate.
