In this episode, we are joined by the owner of TZ Strength and author of Fitness as Sport, Jacob Tsypkin!

We had a great time talking to Jacob and covered a lot of ground including:

  • Jacob’s interest in philosophy and how he implements it into his coaching of athletes
  • How he got into CrossFit and competed at the first two CrossFit Games
  • His transition from owning a gym to coaching completely online
  • His aim in writing the book, Fitness as Sport, and any changes or additions he would make to it today
  • Coaching Sean Sweeney and his recent first place finish in the South Regional
  • His experience coaching someone who just narrowly misses qualifying for the CrossFit Games and the advice he would give athletes who find themselves in a similar situation
  • What a typical day in his life looks like
  • Nerding out on Star Wars
  • The Lightning Round
  • and much more!
