Few Will Hunt with John Rahn

Few Will Hunt with John Rahn

Everybody wants to eat, but few will hunt. Everybody wants the best results, but few will ever have the tenacity to put the work in. But that’s the beauty of it, you just have to outwork everybody else. In this episode of the Success Fundamentals Podcast, Kris Sykes talks to fitness coach and owner of Believe Elite Athletic Training, John Rahn.

As a former federal agent working with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, John was already set for life in his career. However, his true passion lay elsewhere, and he eventually founded his own fitness gym. Today, he coaches some of the top MMA fighters, including Shane Burgos. Besides physical training, John also works with athletes on their nutrition and mental fitness to give them holistic training that sets them up for success in their respective fields.

HIGHLIGHTS

The road less traveled is the entrepreneur way
A chance meeting that started the coaching business
Brush with cancer and switching careers
Everybody wants to eat but few will hunt
Nutrition is as important as training
Go hard then go harder a little more
Don't let yourself fall towards comfort
Entering the MMA world and coaching Shane Burgos
Evolving through the pandemic and writing a book

QUOTES

John: "Go all in, and stay consistent with your effort everyday. Have faith and just be willing to outwork everybody. Put the work in."

John: "You can't take J.J. Watts' workout and try to go do it on the field. The guy literally flips a thousand pounds higher, 60 times. He's a freak of nature. But you know what you can try to do, you can try and emulate his nutrition. Start with his mental performance, then build your body."

Kris: "People who normally lose or don't have longevity, defaults to comfort. The moment it gets too hard, whether you're running, whether you're lifting, whether you're starting a business, the moment it gets too hard, okay, let me just go back to the business or maybe it's just not meant to be."

John: "Anybody can be an athlete and transform their body and mindset. ANd I think that's what my gym is seeing and shown. Believe Elite is adult and youth athlete, pro athlete and college athlete, the doors are open to anybody who wants to better themselves and better their life and health and fitness."

John: "You could talk through nutrition, you could talk through mindset and mentality. You can't talk through a training session."
