You may have seen this week’s guest on a random Saturday afternoon while watching the Olympics or an extreme sports show with guys hucking themselves off of 100-foot cliffs on mountain bikes. Sal Masekela has been hosting shows like this for NBC and Red Bull for many years, and is currently the persona of the Red Bull Signature Series. But I know Sal through his participation with our fitness community at CrossFit Los Angeles, of which he was a member for over 5 years, and subsequently, his journey as a four-time veteran of the Whole Life Challenge.
Sal leads a pretty incredible life, traveling to all parts of the earth with some of the world’s greatest extreme athletes (surf, skate, snowboard, ski, dirt bike, mountain bike, etc.) in order to bring their exploits and amazing performances alive for the rest of us via TV. He also gets a chance to hang out with these guys outside of competition. During the podcast, he shares both stories and profound learnings from the likes of Laird Hamilton, Gabby Reece, and Kelly Slater (who he hangs with regularly).
Though his life is glamorous, he struggles just like the rest of us with his personal health and fitness, challenged by the uniqueness of his schedule, lifestyle and habits. He’s incredibly open about his life and shares with us many of his personal daily habits and how he makes sure to get them in each day.
Join me for a conversation about the journey and joy of life, and some profound learnings from the life and experiences of Sal Masekela.
