Kyle Ruth, Swimming & CrossFit, Breathing Strategies, Mental Toughness || Episode #75 [EN]

November 7, 2020

Kyle Ruth is a CrossFit Athlete and Coach with Training Think Tank.

Kyle: "Father, husband, coach. I'm a competitor to the core, and have been since I can remember, first in swimming and now in CrossFit. I've dedicated the vast majority of my life to understanding elite performance from both the physiological and psychological side. BS in Ex Phys & MS in Applied Sport Science -- my education informs me but more importantly what I learned was how to learn, and how to think "scientifically". I've been coaching for 15 years, and worked with coached athletes at the pinnacle of human performance in multiple sports. “
