Lil Misty Diaz is a Female force to be reckoned with.  I recently had the privilege to sit down with one of the most inspiring athletes that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She is the unofficial Queen of Overcoming Obstacles and after our conversation I am nominating her for the official status. 

My friend Misty Diaz joins us today and she is an incredibly power woman who I am fortunate to have crossed paths with. She was born with MYelo-menin-jo-sele is a birth condition in which the backbone and spinal canal do not close before birth.Myelomeningocele the most serious form of Spina Bifida and it affects 1 in every 4,000 children. 

In 1984 Misty began her battle that would eventually define her as the magnificent person that she is today. After conquering a series of 28 operations, she discovered what would become her true strength and with a small step towards that …a huge life change. One day she began to walk from her house to the next block. Then the next day the block after that. She then got into competing in races and has never looked back. 

When she’s not racing, she’s training, mentoring kids with SB, encouraging other adaptive athletes, speaking in schools, or planning her next trip. One of her dreams is to race internationally and some day soon she will be creating a 5k Walk/Run to support those who are in need and living with Spina Bifida.

She is truly the embodiment of drive and success and we can all take a page or two from her book- She is one of the most vibrant people and knows just how to get busy living. I hope that you all learn from and enjoy my conversation Lil Misty.

This episode is a mirror of a show that aired on the Honest Ghost Podcast. As some of you know my primary occupation is as a health and Wellness Expert. Someone thought I was doing a good job so they reached out to interview me about what my process and methodology look like. 

I can be all over the map at times. If you heard the previous show The Obstacle Order then you know this to be true. Today is similar because there is just too much to cover! Too much to talk about and too little time to do it in so we go over a little bit of everything. 

How do I spend my time serving the clientele that I do and making the lifestyle that I want? Why is Burlingame Fitness the premiere health coaching studio in the Silicon Valley area? The extraordinary Coaches Collective seems cool but what is it? These are just a few of the things that we go over on todays episode of the Philip Levi Show. 

It was an honor to be interviewed and I hope that you’ll enjoy the content we have created for you. As always if you have any questions please reach out on the site, DM me on Instagram or leave a comment on one of my Youtube videos and I will do my very best to get back to you.

Take care and thanks for tuning in!

In this episode of the show and I sit down with my very special guest Joe De Sena. Many of you know him as the founder and CEO of Spartan Race. He is one of the most hardworking and down to earth people that I have met. 

We sit down fireside, literally, in the lobby of the Squaw Valley Ski Resort. It can be a little noisy at times but thats life isn’t it? Our conversation is one that ranges from why Spartan Race began all the way to the proper way to start your day. 

If you were a fan of my previous show then you’ll love the new format. It’s short, sweet and to the point. Plus you’ll find that there are some great tips on how to live your life to the fullest. As we like to say on the show “how to get busy living”! 

I hope that you enjoy, and benefit from, my chat with the founder of Spartan Race, Joe De Sena.

I love OCR and I love athletics but for some time now I have felt constrained by the subject matter that was the title of the show itself. There is just too much that interests me to limit my focus specifically OCR.

That being said I would like to introduce “The Philip Levi Show: Understanding Health, Wealth and Life“. The show features guests from various fields and in the exploration of their backgrounds I aim to bring their experience to the audience. Through conversation and experience I bring to you the opportunity to learn and grow along with us.  At the forefront of my interest is bringing the stories of my guests to you in the hopes that their knowledge provides you with some insight and benefit that you can apply to your daily life. I will also explore what seems to make people content in their lives. With the launch of this show I also aim to explore the path pursued towards what makes people truly happy. 

I appreciate your tuning in and I hope that together we can get busy living.

This is an installment of the show and with it some big news. I’m talking about 2 things today. The first is a big announcement that we are moving onward and upward to expand our horizons. The second topic of conversation is about slowing down.

A meditation on what it takes to be alright with not being busy. Taking the time to slow down and smell the roses. Finding the beauty in a tree or a lizard on the side of the trail is a lost art to many of us. We are constantly forced into a daily race of productive calendar tasks taht, if gone unfulfilled leave us feeling like we have missed some greater point of existence.

All we need is right in front of us and this short installement is my attempt to unpack some of that. This episode is taped out n the world on a windy hillside. The first few minutes are, well, windy. Listen and learn if youd like. Thank you for your time.

Knowledge is Power and you best be ready to Power Up.

This installment of the show is brought to you by you and your great  questions. I want to keep you moving through your day so I’m only answering 3 of them.
“How do you plan your training?”
“Do you get into training slumps?”
“How do you de-stress?”

I like these questions because they are short and concise and I do my best to answer them in a way that makes sense to everyone.
I also have a very detailed breakdown of my workout of the week which was an absolute trash compactor of an effort.

Please enjoy the this installment of the Obstacle Order Podcast.

In this Episode, Elijah sits down for his last one-on-one interview as part of the Obstacle Order Podcast.

It’s fitting this episode included Johnny Luna Lima.  He is one of the closet new friends that Elijah made during his journey so far in OCR while creating content for the Obstacle Order Podcast.

This episode covers Johhny’s self-discovery process navigating as a self- directed athlete vs. working with a coach and the challenges each of those approaches present. Also, his awesome performance in the Spartan Europe Championships.

It’s a fun convo that is more like a few friends catching up. We hope you enjoy it

Chris Love #TheNormalFatGuy drops by The Show today and he’s written a book for all of those wondering about the details surrounding an OCR. Not everyone has done these things and the book that he has written is a great place to get all of your questions answered. 

It’s called “The Normal Guy’s OCR Guide” and it covers topics from the beginnings of the sport to what to pack before a race. We finally have a one stop guide that covers the franchises, the venues, the gear and the training that are required to compete in OCR.
