In this episode we are joined by Marcus Filly!  He is a 6x CrossFit Games athlete, Founder of Revival Strength and creator of Functional Bodybuilding.

We were so excited to get Marcus on the podcast and he did not disappoint.  We had a great conversation with topics including:

  • Marcus turning down a career in medicine to pursue what really brought him joy
  • The spiritual awakening that led to some big decisions for Marcus
  • How Marcus discovered CrossFit
  • His organic progression into competing in the sport
  • How Marcus has recently stepped away from competition and shifted his focus more towards family and business
  • Finding fulfillment and joy in your training
  • The importance of developing mechanics and consistency before intensity
  • How he created Functional Bodybuilding
  • Jerks on social media
  • If we will see him compete again at the CrossFit games
  • and much more!
