Coaching the 2-Time Fittest Man on Earth® (with Adam Neiffer) – Fitnessnacks

    Today I’m talking to CrossFit coach, athlete, and affiliate owner Adam Neiffer, who joins The BarBend Podcast for the second time. Adam is perhaps best known today as the coach of two-time reigning Fittest Man on Earth Justin Medeiros. I’ve known Adam for approaching a decade, and he’s one of the most thoughtful coaches I’ve ever had the pleasure of chatting with. Adam shares his approaches to training both elite and general population clients, and he also dives deep on the challenges of training top athletes in a sport where anything — and we do mean anything — can be contested.
