  1. Here’s Why You’re Not an Elite Athlete (Ep. 351) - Freakonomics Freakonomics

    There are a lot of factors that go into greatness, many of which are not obvious. A variety of Olympic and professional athletes tell us how they made it and what they sacrificed to get there. And if you can identify the sport most likely to get a kid into a top college — well then, touché!

  2. How to Stop Being a Loser (Ep. 350) - Freakonomics Freakonomics

    The San Francisco 49ers, one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world, also used to be one of the best. But they’ve been losing lately — a lot — and one of their players launched a controversy by taking a knee during the national anthem. So why is everyone there so optimistic? To find out, we speak with the team’s owner, head coach, general manager, and star players, including their new $137.5 million quarterback. (Ep. 2 of “The Hidden Side of Sports” series.)

  3. How Sports Became Us (Ep. 349) - Freakonomics Freakonomics

    Dollar-wise, the sports industry is surprisingly small, about the same size as the cardboard-box industry. So why does it make so much noise? Because it reflects — and often amplifies — just about every political, economic, and social issue of the day. Introducing a new series, “The Hidden Side of Sports.”

    Dave Castro knew he wanted to become a Navy SEAL before graduating from high school, and it wasn’t long after that he enlisted in the Navy, graduated from BUD/S and began his service as a SEAL from 1998-2010. In 2005, he first caught wind of CrossFit and started following CrossFit.com to support his training. By 2006 he had begun training at the original CrossFit HQ affiliate in Santa Cruz, CA and was soon helping out at Level 1 seminars. The following year, he hosted the first ever CrossFit Games competition at his family’s Ranch in Aromas, CA. Since that time, the CrossFit Games competition has grown exponentially into a professional sport under Dave’s direction, and this year marks the 10th season of competition in CrossFit Games history. Now Dave serves as the Director of the CrossFit Games and Co-Director of Training alongside Nicole Carroll. I was excited to sit down with Dave to discuss what drives him, how he continues to use his SEAL training today, and his approach to programming and directing the Games. 

    In this episode, we discuss:

    His thoughts on the 2016 Regional Competition

    His approach to programming events for various levels of CrossFit Games competition

    How he uses inspiration from art, music, literature, and other sports to inspire CrossFit Games events

    His daily routine

    His experience dropping in to every affiliate in San Diego county this year

    His current training regimen

    What inspired him to become a Navy SEAL

    How he applies lessons and skills learned as a SEAL to his position as a leader within CrossFit

    How he found closure as a SEAL and transitioned out of the military and into his full time role with CrossFit HQ

    What drives him to make the CrossFit Games competition the best it can possibly be

    Three things he does on a regular basis that have the biggest positive impact on his health

    The books he’s read most recently

    One thing he struggles to implement that could have a big impact on his health

    How he distinguishes health from performance

    What a healthy life looks like to him
