Jun 12, 2017

This week’s guest is Ben Logan who I got to have a Skype conversation with last weekend. Ben is a former pro triathlete representing New Zealand. He stopped the competitive triathlon circuit a few years ago and moved from Auckland down to Central Otago when he felt the call of the wilderness. Since he has been down there he has teamed up with Dr Greg Emerson to start up a company called New Age Primal. New Age Primal is about teaching people the unique mindset skills to thrive in life through practical survival courses. I’ll definitely be heading down south at some point to go on one of Ben’s courses so if you’re keen let me know and we can make it a group.

Our chat is about getting outside the norm of what is socially acceptable, it’s about figuring out what to pursue and gaining the confidence to explore the things you’re interested in. One of Ben’s interests, which I share, is figuring out what optimal health looks like, we can see what the bottom end looks like, but where is the top end? Ben is about training his mind and body continuously, putting it through the uncomfortable consistently to grow and evolve as a person. It’s fair to say that I was buzzing after my conversation with Ben, and I hope you will be too.

Remember if you like what you hear make sure to share it out with your mates so that they can get into some of Ben’s wisdom. Thanks for getting uncomfortable with Bean and I today.
