Earn Your Confidence with Jason Khalipa
"You’ve gotta have something really deep inside your heart to compete in whatever you’re doing.”
Many people dream of being a champion. Whether it’s in a sport or business, it takes dedication and time.
My guest today, Jason Khalipa, is a man who has mastered both. He’s a CrossFit champion many times over, and opened his own successful chain of gym.
He’s taken the time to push his element in all areas of life, and really take the time to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. This skill had become so much more valuable when his daughter was diagnosed with one of the scariest diseases I can think of - Leukemia.
Jason paused his life has a champion to step into his most important role - being a father. With his high school sweetheart by his side he’s been helping his daughter fight the illness with health, diet, and the most important ingredient of love.
Through all of this Jason has still managed to continue to grow his amazing gym business, making sure every person who walks through the doors of one of his gyms is treated with loyalty and appreciation.
